Imagerunner 1023if printing on glossy paper

I have some A5 size, single-sheet brochures that I would like to print phone numbers on. (I use the bypass tray because it is an odd size) Everything works fine when the brochures are on standard paper, but when we tried with some of the flyers that are printed on glossy paper the tend to bind and jam. Is there a way to change the settings so that the machine will accept the glossy paper without jamming?

    Thank you so much. You answer absolutely makes sense. After a few tries I did give up on printing to glossy paper so I hope I have avoided ruining the fuser. Anyway, now I know that in order for that to work (if it will work at all) it will need to be done on an inkjet printer.

    Thanks again for your help.

Hello boriquajake,
We are looking at inherent limitations of the copier. The reason the paper appears "glossy" is that it is coated with a type of plastic that does not like going Thru whats called the fuser. This fuser does what its name implies as it "fuses" the toner to the paper by way of extreme heat and pressure. Thru decades of trial and error copier manufactures have found a way to make carbon black and plastique( like the EURO NAME?) along with other confidential compounds into a mixture (called toner) that can survive the extreme heat (370' F and above) and pressure (the sky is the limit here) bond to the paper and successfully exit. However, the nifty glossy paper was designed for an inkjet printer which uses sprayed ink and neither heat or pressure. My final most helpful statement would be that glossy paper was never designed for a copier. And I can promise you that at some point the glossy paper will cause a paper jam in the fusing area that will be very expensive . Since the "gloss " is merely a plastic shine that was never meant to be "re-melted" by the rubber coated rollers......... need I say more. One day you will have a paper jam from hell that will destroy the fuser. I wish I had better news but if you think about it I just saved you a service call, and a significant bill. You are are the working guys/ gals like me that I like to help before you get screwed. Take care.

Sharp mx3110n printer won't use bypass tray? Trying to print on glossy paper using that tray and it won't, it automatically switches to tray 1. Or can I just put glossy paper in tray 1?


Hello Laura,
Here is the pdf that explains how to set up th bypass tray; http://support.appstate.edu/sites/support.appstate.edu/files/MX3110%20USE%20SPECIAL%20PAPER%20IN%20THE%20BYPASS.pdf

The text of it is as follows;

TO USE SPECIAL PAPER IN THE BYPASS
? Press either the picture of the copier or press
paper select
? Load paper in the bypass
? Make sure the correct size shows up under
bypass tray
? If paper is not just plain paper press type and
size
? Choose paper type
? If you are printing to the bypass from your
computer you must also tell the print driver
under the paper tab what type of paper is in
the bypass if its not just plain paper
? The copier and the PC must match paper
types
? Press the X button to Accept

Good Luck!

I cannot print from the Stack bypass tray. I have tried many adjustments. This leaves me unable to print envelopes and using letter head. What could be wrong?


First of all select the paper select button for the bypass tray on the control panel after putting envelopes in the tray. It will then say select paper size. Press the RIGHT arrow until COM 10 or executive comes up and the select OK. Then print what you want . You have to look at the printing properties on the driver to make sure you have auto or the bypass tray selected

Everytime I try to print an envelope using my Canon imageRUNNER 1023iF I get an error message. I'm using a Microsoft Works Word Processing program. I have loaded the envelope tray and nothing happens...


To get rid of error, unplug machine.
Sett. the correct paper size ( size of envelope ), paper type (envelope ), both on printer properties ( when you prompted to print ) and on machine ( when you put envelope on bypass, machine auto ask you ).
Do not forget to tell printer that he needs to take paper from bypass ( printer properties )

Hope that helped

The top-loading sheet feeder accommodates approximately 150 sheets (depending on weight), and the front feeder is good for around 100 sheets. Actual media sizes supported by the main feeder (top-loading) include A4, B5, A5, Letter, Legal, Envelopes (DL size or Commercial 10), 10x15cm(4" x 6"), 10x18cm, 13x18cm, 20x25cm, and Credit Card (54x86mm), while the front feeder is less accommodating with just A4, Letter, and B5.

This machine will only print certain sizes as borderless. A5 is not one of them. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight: A4, Letter Premium Glossy Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 5 x 7", 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6", 8 x 10" Photo Paper:A4 Premium Semigloss Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" Glossy Photo Paper:Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" As you can see A5 is not in the list, therefor you will not be able to print A5 borderless via the normal means.
