Question about Canon PIXMA MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One InkJet Printer
I had the exact same problem. The Alarm light was always on and the screen said "Document in ADF. When I pressed "OK" it would read "Eject the document". Even after I placed paper in the ADF and the paper would feed the document through it, the error and the Alarm light was still there. I found the solution, Lift the cover to expose the flat bed scanner glass. Under the cover, there is a long white bar with two white tabs perpendicular to the white bar. One of the tabs was retracted. Pull on the tab until it is fully extended. The alarm turns off and there is no longer the error. Simple solution to a damn annoying issue.

Not sure if this is the same problem or not, but my printer was saying the same thing. I was trying to send a fax and it would always give an alarm and display that message on the second page. I realized that the mx340 has two "start" buttons. One for black copies/faxes and one for color copies/faxes. Make sure you dial your number and push the "black start button" since most people do not have color fax machines.
hope this helps.

The tab thingy worked! I need to use a multi-tool to get a firm enough grip on one of the tabs and GENTLY tugged on it. CLICK! it moved! Closed the lid - VIOLA! IT WORKS!
