In my attempts to print envelopes or labels, the red status light comes on and the orange paper light blinks. Nothing seems to happen when I feed an envelope or sheet of labels into the manual tray. Any ideas?

The printer trays accommodate most sizes and types of paper, transparencies, or other specialty media. Follow these guidelines when loading paper and media in the trays: - Envelopes, labels, and glossy paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) only. - Transparencies and custom size paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) and Tray 2. - Fan paper, transparencies, and labels prior to loading them in the tray. - Use only paper envelopes. All envelopes should be printed single-sided only. Some wrinkling and embossing may occur when printing envelopes. - Do not overload the paper trays. - Adjust the paper guides to fit the paper size. - If excessive jams occur, use paper or other media from a new package.
"MP tray" refers to the manual paper tray. This is the common setting for most word processors whenever printing media other than paper. This message will come not only for labels, but for transparencies, card stock, envelopes, etc. The reason for this is that the manual paper tray is designed to provide a straighter paper path that helps preventing your labels from peeling inside the unit. Therefore, I do not recommend placing them in the regular paper tray. Take note that you should also check that the labels purchased specify they are meant for laser printer or copier. Regular labels, or labels designed for inkjet printers will surely come off inside your printer and cause damage that the warranty will not cover.
MP LOAD, PC LOAD, or LC LOAD paper size,or envelope size The printer received a request for a paper or envelope size not available in the printer. MP LOAD: Load MP Tray with the requested media. If the size is not selected in the printer control panel, use the [MP[Paper[Size] key to enter the requested size, or press [Shift] + [Continue] to draw the requested size from another source, if available. Note: If MP LOAD remains in the display, you may have to clear the buffer by resetting the printer. Press [Shift] + [Reset].
I have called canon with this problem more than once and they keep telling me that I am using a "paper" that is not supported. I finally gave up and ended up telling them that I am now going to use my cheap HP printer because it can do what it's suppose to.
