Question about Canon PIXMA MP240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I attemted to add more paper to the rear paper support while the copier was operating. Several sheets were picked up from the stack I was putting into the rear paper feed. The printer jammed, with sveral sheets jammed in the input slot and one sheet jammed in the output slot. I was able to remove the sheets that were jammed with out tearing and as far as I can determine no paper remains in the printer. When I try to print the E 3 code shows up and the printer does not function.

What would cause tray 1 to misfeed every 12 to 15 sheets? The misfed sheet ends up laying on the edge of the paper tray advanced about 3/8" from the paper stack?


check your paper thickness setting in your drivers
2. clean separation pad at the bottom of the paper tray
3. clean rollers located after the pick up area(registration rollers)
4. check actuators for the sensors to see if they are sticking

Several sheets entered the printer at the same time and stuck. can't pull them forward or backward.


Step 1 Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

Step 2 To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

Step 3 For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

Step 4 Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

Step 5 Try printing another document

The auto document feeder does not pick up the paper


The pickup roller is probably dirty. Take a clean sheet of paper and put a small amount of rubbing alcohol at the end. Take that same end and place it in the automatic feeder and attempt to feed through for a few times. This should clean the pickup roller and allow paper to be picked up. Wait a few minutes for the alcohol to dry and attemt to feed a clean sheet of paper. You might need to repeat the process a few times

It grabs several sheets of paper at one time


This is most likely a paper problem, the paper is basically sticking to the next sheet, Ensure the paper is stored in a cool dry place helps, dont load the paper with more than what you need for a couple of days and when loading the paper flick the pages to allow air between the pages
If this dosnt work try a different brand of paper

Paper feed grabs more than one sheet


Try fanning your paper several times. Take that nice neat pile of paper in your hands and wiggle it so that your thumb fans through the edge of the whole stack. Do this on both edges so that the stack of paper is slightly less perfect. You can also gently fold the whole stack slightly in both directions. Do this every time you add fresh paper. It should only take a few seconds.

Won't pick up the next sheet of paper


While it doesn't always work, this problem seems to be helped by keeping the tray as full as possible. It has more trouble picking up pages when the stack is low.

Fixing paper feed problems
  • Ifthe printer is not picking up paper, check to see if there is paper inthe IN tray. If there is not, load paper into the IN tray and press thec00153917.jpg RESUME button.
  • Do not load more than 100 sheets of 20-pound paper in the IN tray. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38 inches.
  • Use the same type paper in the paper tray when you are printing.
  • Makesure that the paper width adjuster is against the left side of thestack but is not blocking the stack. Push in the paper length adjusterto make sure that the paper is fully seated in the printer. Do not pushso hard that the paper buckles.
  • Do not use paper, envelopes, or cards that are torn, buckled, have curled edges, or do not lie flat.
  • Ifusing the IN tray to load several envelopes, push the paper lengthadjuster toward the envelopes until it stops. Do not bend the envelopes.
  • Load only one envelope at a time in the single-sheet input tray and be sure that it is inserted fully into the slot.
  • Use envelopes with square flaps instead of triangular flaps, or tuck the flaps inside the envelopes.
  • Ifthe printer's paper feed rollers become covered with debris (dust orpaper fibers), clean the rollers with a soft cloth dampened with water.
  • Ifthe paper loads unevenly in the printer, one or more of the rollers onthe rear access door is missing. Remove the rear access door and checkto see if all six rollers in the door are present. If any are missing,the door assembly needs to be replaced. This is a customer replaceablepart, number C4557-60076.
  • Ifthe printer does not drop any paper from the wings to the OUT tray,remove the excess paper. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38inches.
  • Ifthe printer is sending more than a single sheet through at one time,remove the paper from the IN tray and separate any sheets that arestuck together. Reload the paper in the IN tray.
  • Ifthe printer is not ejecting paper, then turn off the printer. If yourcomputer is turned on, turn it off. Then, turn on the computer. Wait afew seconds. Turn on the printer.
    NOTE: If you continue to experience paper feed problems, try other media or paper types. Refer to the User's Manual for supported media types and specifications.

Make sure you fan the paper before putting it in. 20 sheets is usually about right for these printers.

If you put labels in the printer. Only put a few sheet in at a time and put paper stock below them.

Printing and faxing more than one page at a time


Hi This is a common problem, not only with your printer, but most at some time or other. In part it seems you get what you pay for, in that if you buy premium paper (business grade 40 mil), you normally have less problems. The paper is drawn into the printer by a rubber or compacted foam roller, and sometimes the paper sheets will sick to each other, and more than one will be drawn in. The best thing to do if you are using less expensive paper, or even the expensive stuff, is to "fan" the stack of paper several times with your thumb, at the end that will face the rollers, and also don't let the stack get down to only 3 or 4 sheets, as the problem is worse near the bottom of the stack. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
