Question about Canon MX700 Office All-In-One InkJet Printer

Canon mx700 printer

I'm having all kinds of problems loading paper. Is there suppose to be a separate paper tray or do you just lay it in the bottom. It doesn't lay well and I'm getting paper jams and it grabs more than one page.

I had a cannon 530 and it had a separate front paper tray...and it worked well.

    How do you deep clean the rollers by hand, someone said to take a washcloth and feed it through and roll it back and forth, but I am terribly afraid of breaking it.

Using a q-tip clean the rollers with rubbing alcohol.
Try different paper. The fact that it grabs more than one page means the paper or rollers are dirty.

How to load photo paper in paper tray canon mg5220

For front or front tray loading printers, shiny side down... for rear/back loading printers.., shiny side up. Pictures should be visible coming out of the exit slot. Using pre-cut photo paper requires some technique, if the paper holder does not have an adjustable paper width feature. Feed paper in one sheet at a time to prevent jambs.

Print jam with Canon MX700

Monica, on the back of the printer is a black panel that pulls out by grabbing the tab that sticks out on the one side and pulling. That will allow you to acces the jammed piece and reset the printer! Hope this solves it! Eric

My Canon MX700 printer prints crooked--did the maintenance too!

Try printing from the rear tray. My printouts from the bottom tray come out crooked, but the ones from the rear tray seem fine.

Will not print

go to this page: ""

seems to be related to paper jams or wrong size of paper being placed in the front tray. if loading odd (e.g.: credit card sized), paper sizes, they need to be loaded into the rear tray.

good luck!

Not reading paper

If you toggle the Feed Switch button (lower left side of control panel) to the Front Tray, does the printer print then? What type of paper is selected in your Printer Settings on the computer? I think that if you have selected anything but Plain Paper, the driver wants you to load the paper (photo paper, etc.) in the Rear Tray.

Pulled out paper & broke the printer

There is a part of the printer that looks like a roller (sorry I can't remember the name now) but you may know it. It rolls over the papers to pick one at a time and forward that to the printing segment. If you can reach it, try (gently) to adjust it into place (or normal position). It probably rotated half cycle or so when you forced the paper out. It needs to complete the cycle in order to tell that there is paper. I am using experience from laser printers so bear with me. But that's what usually causes such problems after **** occassions.
