Question about Canon imageCLASS MF8180C All-In-One Laser Printer
I am receiving a message that says Supply Rec. Paper
There is paper in the machine. I have restarted the computer linked to it, restarted the machine itself, removed and added paper. Nothing is working. Can you help?
Ya, I had that same problem too; I was printing something that was over printing margins, and then i had the message "supply rec. paper......" on the lcd screen. I ended up fixing the problem by clearing/canceling all the documents i was printing on my computer, and clearing/canceling all the documents saved inside the MEMORY OF THE PRINTER (note the green light with the "memory, in use" which means it's probably still trying to print the document that's too big, so it wont print anything else). (<--- not sure if that was your problem, but it was mine)
Anyways, to clear the memory inside the printer, i pressed the "status monitor" button located to the left of the "B&W start" button, and then i scrolled over to "print status, select job to cancel" and canceled all jobs, and then once i canceled all jobs, the alarm disappeared, and it was fixed XD

Same problem only my MF8180C said ENV instead of LTR. I tried all solutions above (except for calling a technician). I tried to clear the memory, but for some reason it would not let me. What DID work was feeding an envelope into the MP tray (despite the machine specifiying a problem with the Cassette). It printed an envelope from a job a few days prior (when the problem began, I assume).
Then the problem arose again immediately after but specified LTR. So I loaded the MP tray with lettersize paper. The machine printed and Voila! fixed.
If the machine would have let me cancel the jobs, logically this would have resolved the problem as well... but it appears this is not a logical device.

Try to unplug the machine for a few minutes. Turn it back on and see if the message is gone.

This happens all time, here the issue is your sending the job to wrong tray. when its says "Supply TRAY" it means the front paper tray. if it says "cassette" thats the main tray. cancel all print jobs in the status monitor and before you print check if your sending the print job to the right Tray it need to be set to cassette in the property.
btw depending on the software your using it my not accept the defaults given so alway check b4 you print. its seems like a driver issue keep your up to date till they Fix it

I am having the same problem. We've had this printer for over a year and it seems that it has only been since we started rolling out the Vista platform, although now occuring for those users who still have Windows 2000. Only way around this so far is to actually install LTR size paper (change it in the trays), mind you we had to cut down A3 paper to have this.
I've looked on the canon site but no fix yet, anyone have the answer.
