1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

Pull out the extension completely.

Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

When I go to print something it tells me it's out of paper and it isn't! I can here the machine act like it is loading the paper


Hi Pat.
Normally if a printer tells you that it's out of paper it generally is.
If however, you can see paper and can categorically say that it is not out of paper then there is generally something blocking the paper pick-up path. Take the feed tray out and make sure there is nothing hiding in there like a paper-clip (or food!).
These machines are pretty robust and should normally last several years before giving this sort of error, so I would always look for 'something in the way' before going any deeper.

My deskjet F2400 keeps saying paper jam, there isn't one. it will not print at all now.


One of the paper sensors most likely has dirt in it, Check the paper path and if you have access to an air compressor you can blow any dust out.

The print is great but the printer is curving both ends of the paper up. It seems like its going through too many rollers ?


Hello,
the problem could be in too much moisture on paper. Try to insert new fresh paper or flip upside down the existing paper in cassette.
Also if the paper isn't fixed in cassette by means of paper holders on each side, paper can go loose while pick up and cause corners and scratches.

Also this can happen if something is in paper path, for inspection you need to dismantle half of printer... call service if isn't problem in moisture of paper.

The magenta isn't printing correctly, and the printer keeps telling me to remove tape from the magenta cartridge. There isn't any tape on it. I've tried resetting it several times.


Its sounds as though the printer isnt picking up the cartridges properly, try removing it and cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer

Error code 3528 keeps coming up,telling me to remove back cover and remove paper jam then replace back cover.there is no paper jam,checked printer heads no paper anywhere?


I have this printed and if you read (carefully) through the manual it tells you it doesn't like single sheets of paper. If ever my paper feeder tray runs below say 3 sheets then this error will crop up so keep it topped up with paper. The same goes for photo paper too.

Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"


I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

I'm trying to print some photos on 4 x 6 paper. i selected notecard paper size, but the printer keeps printing the 4 x 6 photo on 8 1/2 x 11 paper.


Are you telling the printer to use the smaller paper?
If it has 2 sizes it will keep using the last size used unless you tell it to change.
