Canon MP6oo paper tray empty

My mp600 keeps telling me there is no paper in the tray.
I have put paper in and taken it out, several times.
there is paper in the tray.
the paper is good,
the paper is in square and all the tabs are lined up properly in the tray,
the tray is pushed into the printer and is locked in place,
and still my display says no paper in the tray when I try to print.
Is there a sensor or a faulty switch some where in this unit that is a typical problem with this unit?
I have used it very little. Maybe 2 trays of paper in all.
the printer is only 6 wks old.
I can take it back but if there is some quick solution for this problem I would like to know.
Can u help?

    Yesterday my Canon MP600 printer stopped working everytime I try to print it comes with error: cassete, there is no paper, load paper and press ok. I have done this many times and I need the printer because I am a year 9 student and if I dont get my assignments done, I won't get my school certificate. I have already done that thing where you go into the printer settings to change it so i can print larger paper sizes and it did not work. I need an easy,low cost or free way to fix it myself.

Issue: "The selected paper size is not supported by your printer..." appears after selecting the Paper Size in the printer driver.
Solution: Use Fit-to-Page Printing (Windows)

Use Fit-to-Page Printing (Windows) The Fit-to-Page function automatically resizes the image to fit the size of the page being used. Letter size image data, for example, will automatically be printed on 4" x 6" size paper. Paper sizes larger than the printer can handle will be available on the Page Setup of the printer driver but will not print unless the Fit-to-Page function is enabled. Note: The Fit-to-Page Printing function is not available when Borderless Printing is selected.

  1. Access the printing preferences by opening the printer Properties / Preferences:

    For Windows Vista
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.
    For Windows XP Home Edition
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows XP Professional Edition
    • Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows 2000/Me/98
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

  2. Click the Page Setup tab.

  3. Specify the 'Fit-to-Page Printing' settings.

    (3) Select the actual size of print media.

  4. Click 'OK'.

Does not sense lower feeding tray as full


One suggestion is to check if there is paper behind the tray which is stopping the paper lift mechanism from functioning properly. The paper senso rcould be dirty or broken and will need to be serviced. Or, the papersize dial could be set to the wrong paper size.

Canon MP600 paper jam


  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Supply Rec. Paper tray will not clear even with a whole ****


Ok try this - switch the machine off at the mains, empty the paper tray. Push the paper tray back in and switch on the machine with no paper in it. When it's finished warming up it should tell you the tray is empty. Then put paper in. This will usually clear it.

Canon MP600 paper jam


I recently had the same problem and was very bummed, because I like the printer, having received it as part of an Apple bundle promotion.
The problem I was having is that I had paper in the rear (auto sheet feeder) area and when I'd try to print, all I heard was clicking and then I'd get a message that there was no paper installed.

Here's what to do.
On the panel, on the left side, there's a button called "Feed Switch."
You'll notice that there's a graphic of the printer to the left of the button with 2 lights. Push the Feed Switch button to toggle the light from the front tray (cassette) to the rear tray (auto sheet feeder)... and when the light is on the rear try (vs. the front tray) you're all set.
This will fix the problem.
