Good luck to you. Your printer is a good pick for tabloid size multifunction printer since it comes with tons for features and print good quality for office document. On the other hand it is known for paper jam and misfeeds. It is very common for this model. Make sure you are using the right tray for your tabloid size (choose the right tray and paper type from your printer properties from your PC control panel) Make sure you use the good paper quality Make sure you insert paper in correctly. In our case, we found that jam caused by a bit of torn paper on upper left corner of paper, once we fixed that, it works fine. So check your paper, too. Or use other paper type from different vendor to test. Thanks

SOURCE: won't print tabloid paper

I had this problem a couple of years back and took the printer to a service company. They replaced the paper pickup rollers and I have not had the problem since. Other problems, yes, but not that problem.

SOURCE: It was printing ok in tabloid size paper,

Having reinstalled the driver check both the printer and also the print driver for a zoom setting that would show as 50% as a default. This is most likely to be on the print driver setup on the PC. This can also happen if you get a combination of 'zoom to fit' and then change the orientation from portrait to landscape and vice versa so check this setting as well. You can avoid this by setting auto adjust for rotation from portrait to landscape and vice versa.

There is a small switch inside whee the paper is that needs to be set (pressed) against by the paper.
Check to see if the switch was damaged or maybe there is a peice of paper in there yet at the paper tray preventing the switch frombeing pressed by the paper.

We have the xerox 560 printer and when using 11x17 tabloid paper the machine jams, pulls 2 sheets and seems to overheat. Any suggestions on what we could be doing wrong?


Not sure about his model but on most Xerox next to the feed wheel which need to be clean and good, there is a oneway clutch on the same shaft, either clean with alchol (rubbing) or replace. Again this maynot apply to this model. Also check settings for correct size of paper in paper set up menu.

On the Ip4300 the yellow light flashes at 10 times intervals. The printer does not responde to anything. Thanks Dave


This is from Canon's web site...

Ten flashes:The Cassette is not installed properly/Cannot perform duplex printing
  • When loading from the Cassette, install the Cassette properly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
  • When performing automatic duplex printing, the size of paper may not be compatible with automatic duplex printing. The sizes of media suitable for auto duplex printing are A3, Regal, 11" x 17" (Tabloid), B4, A4, Letter, 10" x 12", 8" x 10", B5, and A5". Make sure that the size of the paper loaded in the printer is correct. Pressing the RESUME/CANCEL button will eject the paper and restart printing from the front side of the next paper. The reverse side of the ejected sheet will not be printed.

Problem with Canon Pixma 4300 inkjet. Orange alarm lamp flashes 10 times on switching printer on. Have tried plugging and unplugging power cord, and checked that there is no paper jam. Please help. Brian


Hello Brian,

I found the following on Canon's website.

Not sure if it will fix your issue but thought it might be worth a try:

Ten flashes:The Cassette is not installed properly/Cannot perform duplex printing
  • When loading from the Cassette, install the Cassette properly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
  • When performing automatic duplex printing, the size of paper may not be compatible with automatic duplex printing. The sizes of media suitable for auto duplex printing are A3, Regal, 11" x 17" (Tabloid), B4, A4, Letter, 10" x 12", 8" x 10", B5, and A5". Make sure that the size of the paper loaded in the printer is correct. Pressing the RESUME/CANCEL button will eject the paper and restart printing from the front side of the next paper. The reverse side of the ejected sheet will not be printed.

Best of luck

Printing a booklet on WorkCentre 7345 , need help argent !!!


OK, same problem, I've gotten through the solution. I can print and have the first page and last page on one side of the large sheet and the two inside pages on the other side, so that is foldable into a booklet.
I start with a 4 page (US letter sized) document I wish to print as a booklet on tabloid paper.
In the (page layout or editing program's) print dialogue, I've said print all pages, set it at 1 page per sheet, then clicked the printer properties button to open the Xerox Workcenter 7345PS option dialogue.
In the Xerox dialog on the "Paper/Output" tab, selected the larger (Tabloid, 11x17" in my case) paper size, selected 2-Sided Print. Then I select the "Layout/Watermark" tab and clicked the Booklet Layout radio button, chose "Landscape" for the Page Layout Option. Note: I saved these settings as "Tabloid Booklet" by clicking the down-arrow to the right of "Driver Defaults" so that I could select them and not have to dial in every one of the settings whilst experimenting.
