Having to remove the paper from the output tray when copying

Whenever I load more than 5 pages into the Canon ir 3030 top feeder, it will only print about four or so pages before it asks me to remove the copies and then it continues printing another four pages and so on. Is there a way to change a setting on the copier so it just copies whatever I put in there without having the delay of constantly having to remove the pages? Thanks.

Depends on what finisher is fitted to the machine, but i'm guessing that a sensor is dusty or out of location. Look for the sensors at each side of the finisher, adjacent to the paper tray. If found, try cleaning with a tissue. Let me know?

Jam in top 3015d


Sir/Madam

Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a print job. An error in the software program and a jam message on the printer control panel display indicate a media jam. To prevent a jam, see the following instructions:
  • Only print on media that meets HP specifications.
  • Only print on media that is not wrinkled, folded, or damaged.
  • Make sure that the printer is clean.
  • Make sure that the input trays are loaded properly and are not too full. See the start guide for more information about loading input trays.
When adding new media, always remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding through the printer at one time, which reduces media jams

Clearing a media jam


CAUTION: Media jams might result in loose toner on the page. Use cold water to wash toner off of clothes, as hot water will permanently set the toner into fabric. To remove toner from hands, wash hands in cold water.
CAUTION: Do not use a sharp object, such as a pencil or scissors, to remove jammed media.
NOTE: When clearing jams, including jams in the output bin, always push the print-cartridge-door release to open the top cover, and remove the print cartridge. Keep the top cover open and the cartridge out until the jam has been cleared. Opening the top cover and removing the print cartridge relieves tension on the printer rollers, which makes removing jammed pages easier.


Push the print-cartridge-door release and open the top cover.
Figure 1: Pushing release and opening top cover

3f0c0681-aab8-41b1-8ccc-edbc8d10b083.gif

Grasp the handle of the print cartridge and remove it. Set it aside.
Figure 2: Removing print cartridge


1135f64a-e54d-412a-a38c-2d53092ee8b0.gif

CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, do not expose it to light any longer than necessary. Place the print cartridge in a paper bag or other opaque container until it can be placed back in the printer.

With both hands, grasp the side of the media that is most visible (this includes the middle), and carefully pull it free from the device.
Figure 3: Jammed media most visible

When the jammed media is removed from this area, replace the print cartridge.
Figure 4: Replacing printer cartridge


47beeaaf-6bbe-4681-9d09-8b877270789e.gif
Press the supporting springs, and close the top cover.
Open the media input tray and remove any media from the tray.

359bf88b-3c84-4de1-861e-08b6fe39b01f.gif
Slide the media guides inward as far as they will go. Press and hold down the tabs inside the media input tray, and slide the media input tray out of the printer.

Replace the input tray into the device.

After clearing the media jam, it may be necessary to shut down the printer, and then turn it on again.

NOTE: To add new media, remove all of the media from the input tray, straighten the stack of media after adding the new media, and then place the stack in the tray.
Clearing other media jams
CAUTION: Do not use a sharp object, such as a pencil or scissors, to remove jammed media.
If the media has jammed where it exits the printer, grasp the leading edge of the media and pull the media out through the output bin.
Figure 8: Removing jammed media from output bin


b9b1737a-16cc-4bd2-b9a7-77bad78ef641.gif

NOTE: If the printer is shut off before clearing the media jam, turn it on again, and then restart the printing or copying job.
Tips to avoid media jams
Make sure the automatic document feeder (ADF) media lever is in the correct position for the media being used. Slide it to the single-sheet setting (to the right) when scanning on thick media. Slide it to the multiple-sheet setting (to the left) when scanning on regular media.
Make sure that the input tray is not overfilled. The input tray capacity varies depending on the type of print media that is used.
Check that the input tray is securely in place.
Do not add print media into the input tray while the printer is printing.
Use only HP-recommended media types.
Do not let print media stack up in the output bin. The print media type and the amount of toner used affect the output bin capacity.
Check the power connection. Make sure that the power cord is firmly connected to both the device and the power supply box. Plug the power cord into a grounded AC power outlet.
Media jams occur in the automatic document feeder (ADF)

Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a copy, scan, or fax job.

A software error message indicates a media jam, and the Doc feeder jam Clear, Reload message appears on the printer control panel display to indicate a jam.
  • The ADF input tray is loaded incorrectly or is too full.
  • The media does not meet HP specifications.
Typical automatic document feeder (ADF) jam locations Input tray areas: If the page is sticking out of the input tray, try to remove it gently from the input tray without tearing the page.

  • Intermediate location: If the page is sticking out of the input tray and into the output area, see "To clear a media jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)" below for instructions.

Automatic document feeder (ADF) media lever If a thick media is being used, slide the media lever to the single-sheet setting (to the right). Load a single sheet of media into the ADF.
When the copying, scanning, or faxing jobs are complete, slide the ADF media lever back to the multiple-sheet setting (to the left).

The reason for that is the front is the paper output tray, the rear tray is where you load the paper. Anything you print, copy, or scanned (to print) will come out the output tray (in front) and will pull paper from the rear tray.

What does close the feeder tray mean


The Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Printer has two paper sources for printing. Likely the top feeder tray is not completely closed (it is possible you do not have the printer set up to feed from both which may cause the error).

See the Quick Start Guide and the Picture Below:

Hi Where do I load the paper in my Canon MX310?


The MX310 is a straight through printer. So you put the paper in the rear tray after opening it. Pull out the paper support and adjust the lever for the paper thickness to match your paper specifications. The lever goes to the left unless printing envelopes and T-shirt transfers. Also pull out the paper output tray and set the output tray extension.

Align the 4 corners of the paper stack (if loading more than one sheet) and bend to uncurl the paper (if needed) before inserting in the rear tray. For photo paper and other pages with a print side and a back, place the pages with the print side facing up. Align the paper against the right side of the rear tray and then pinch the paper guide and slide it to the left side of the paper stack. Make sure to adjust the paper size to match in the computer's printer properties (paper size) or in the copy settings on the all-in-one before either printing or copying.

Specific directions and pictures are in the Quick Start Guide that is available as a PDF here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx310#BrochuresAndManuals .

I hope this helps.

I have a printer canon inkjet mp140 and i don't know how to insert the paper from the tray that is down or from the upside tray


Well, you should insert the paper "from the upside tray". Follow these steps:
Align the edges of the paper before loading it;
Open the paper support of "the upside tray" and pull out the paper support extension;
Open the paper output tray ("tray that is down");
Adjust the position of the paper thickness lever;
Load the paper in the auto sheet feeder with the print side facing UP;
Align the paper stack against the right side of the auto sheet feeder.
Pinch the paper guide and slide it against the left side of the paper stack.

Copier stops after 35 copies when using finisher


This is due to the output tray you sre using only having a small capapcity sensor what you should do is set it to come out from the finisher unit to the lower tray as this holds more sheets you can check this by looking at the output tray and when it asks you to remove paper see if the top pages are resting on the paper sensor in the tray. good luck A

When I print on my Canon MP730, it always prints out a blank page after every print job. How can I fix this?


SOLUTION(S): Reset the Sheet Feeder Gears
If the power fails while the paper is feeding or during a print job, the paper feed gears will lose their proper
alignment. The reason is that after the power is restored the paper feed gears will attempt to return to the
home position, which may not be possible if the paper stop cam is not in the correct position.
PROCEDURES
1. Remove the sheet feeder from the unit.
2. Remove the sheet feeder motor from the sheet feeder assembly.
3. Remove the drive gear from its spindle.
4. Realign the lifting tray gear and paper stop cam gear.
5. Reinstall the drive gear and sheet feeder motor.
6. Reattach the sheet feeder to the print unit.
7. Reassemble the unit.
