There are two tabs on the front. They are nothing like the other four and there are no arrows to indicate where they are.
Turn the computer up on its back so you can access the front tabs from underneath.
Get a good flashlight and look up the deep, rectangular recesses so you can see which two have the little plastic piece holding the case down. With a normal screwdriver, push the little tabs toward the sides. If the other four tabs have already been popped, the whole case will pull away easily.

My canon ip4300 wont do anything when trying to clean or print it just says it's in ERROR mode please help x

It may have lost track of where the head is, even though it calibrates when starting up. (Like when you remove jammed paper forcefully).
First check: make sure the front flap used to print a cd is closed - it tends to come loose easily.
If that isn't the problem, then:
Switch the printer on. When the head comes in view, remove the power plug. Then move the head all the way to the left. Close the cover. Put the power plug back in and switch on.

Cant workout where the cartridge is to pull out and replace?

Turn your Pixma on.

Lift the printer cover, which encompasses the top third of the machine. As you open the cover, the paper output tray will open and the print head will shift to the center for easy access.

Lower the front cover, located in the front middle of the machine.

Locate the cartridges in need of removal and press the corresponding tabs direct in front of each to release them.

Grab each cartridge by its sides and gently slide it out of the compartment to remove from your Canon Pixma MP530 printer.

Error 1250 on PIXMA ip4300 printer. Despite open tray messae will not o away or allow printing to start.


the error message means there is something wrong with the printer and if the problem is not attended to, the error message will not go away.

In this case, the error message showing on your canon ip4300 is related to a door problem. It has something to do with the front door of your printer. I think the front door of your printer is closed of which is supposed to be opened.

So, the solution is to Open the paper output tray of your printer and the problem should be solved.

Good luck.

Printer Error

on the ip4300, the clips that hold the front of the cover on are on the bottom, not the front as shown in the service manual for the 4200.

"Paper Output Slot Jammed" Canon Pixma iP4300

These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.

Good luck!!!

How can I dismantling printer Canon iP4300?


I just opened mine tonight after finally finding a picture of where the front tabs are!

On the back you will see slots with arrows, take a flathead and push it in the slot and push downward on the screwdriver.

Then pull the paper tray out and look here for the tabs on the front.

I wouldn't recommend dismantling farther than this as this is pretty delicate stuff.

But you can clean your waste pads out where the head parks and make sure they are firmly in position. You can also do a general cleaning I suppose.

Big thanks to RossfroMoz for posting a link to these pics which really really helped.

Canon ip 4300

Google "canon ip4300". The entry near the top has a support tab. and enter "paper skew", you'll get a roller cleaning procedure.
As a matter of fact, it didn't solve my problem. The alternative, of having the machine repaired, is, of course, silly vs. buying a new machine. But in the meantime, the lower paper feed still works, albeit slightly less convenient.
