SOURCE: Canon PIXMA iP5300 InkJet thinks paper output tray is closed (it isnt) and won't print!

It was rather easy to figure out how to pop the silver plastic outter casing off, but now that I have it off I still can't seem to identify where the switch that signals the paper outter tray is.

SOURCE: Paper output tray is open but message says it is closed

I solved this problem by putting a shim between the door & switch lever.
The shim is just a piece of cardboard/plastic/whatever about the thickness of a credit card & about 1/4 inch wide.
At the lower right corner of the paper outlet is an opening about 1/4 inch square. On the right side deep in this opening is a lever (rather hard to see). When the door is opened it lifts the lever up (presumably telling the printer the door is open). I took a small screwdriver, inserted it into the left side of the opening, turned it counterclockwise until it caught the edge of the lever & lifted it up, inserted the shim below the lever, & withdrew the screwdriver. This solved the problem (it has only recurred once since the shim was put in).
If the shim falls out just reinsert it. Of course, if you ever want to close the door you need to remove the shim first.

SOURCE: The ip4500 will not print - says the paper output tray is open!

Just fixed this problem on mine. Need to remove the covers, watch these 2 vids to see how..
http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=martop49#p/u/1/iQdHDR6po80

Then on the right side where the on switch is, near the hinge is a little switch with 2 yellow wires, it's probably broke. Pull the 2 wires out and solder or twist them together, then put everything back together. It will now assume the door is always open. Jobs a good'n :)

I receive the following message on the PC display: "Document printing cannot be executed because the paper output tray is closed. Open the paper output tray. Printing will restart". I want to mention


The blinking is just an attention light so there's nothing to worry about that. Try adjusting your paper tray to the paper size you are about to use. Or try checking the duplexer panif its positioned properly. Hope this helps.

Printer notes "Error 6000". It is being used


Take a close look at the printer and the paper tray. The error usually means that the paper output tray is closed (or something is blocking it from opening). Remove the object blocking the paper tray and pull it fully open (including the extension). Then turn off the printer and turn it back on. The error can also occur when a book is being scanned that blocks the paper tray.

Some documentation on the Canon error messages for the MX860 is here: https://www.canon.ie/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MX_series/PIXMA_MX860.aspx?faqtcmuri=tcm:24-644260&page=1&type=faq .

I hope this helps.

I have Canon pixma MX310 and I just trying to set it up.I'm trying to print and there is message open paper out tray.What is that mean and how I can fix it


The printer will not print as long as the paper output tray is closed.
  1. Open the Paper Output Tray (2).
    Put your finger in the rounded indent beside the Paper Output Tray and open it gently.

  2. Open the Output Tray Extension (3).
    Open up and set the Output Tray Extension completely by pressing down the hollow on its front side.

  3. Adjust the position of the Paper Thickness Lever (4).
    Set it to the right when printing on envelopes or T-shirt transfers, and left when printing on any other type of paper.

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


Hello,

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.
