Can' install the printer...on windows 7premium

Check the Canon WEB site for a Windows 7 printer driver. If there isn't one for Windows 7 then try the Vista printer driver. It may work but may not have all the functions. You can download the Canon printer drivers from their support WEB site. Please click on this link and select your model printer to download : - http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=DownloadIndexAct

My canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?

give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Ink cartridges won't move to the left when

This is something I have seen on a number of occassions and it's always been the same issue. One of the ink cartridges has come unseated and has popped up out of its bay.
First of all make sure that the printer is not switched on. then open the lid. Get something thin and strong (rigid) - a 6inch steel ruler is ideal. Slide it in over the ink cartridges and then press down hard. Hopefully you will hear one of them click as it goes back into place. Turn the power back on and see if that has fixed it.
It generally does - but your's may be the one that doesn't.

How do i make copies darker canon pixma ?

Actually pretty easy to do and just in case someone never gets back to, Cannon does provide an online user manual.To darken copies: While in copy mode, press the menu button. Next, arrow over to "copy intensity", once there you should make sure that you\'re in manual mode, hit OK. This will bring up a darken/lighten mode and you can make adjustments from there to what you want. If your copier is starting to fade on it\'s initial copy setting, you also may be close to running out of ink if you haven\'t checked it in a while. Even though they shouldn\'t , if you don\'t used it that often, it can still dry out the connections. Hope this helps.

Black ink volume unknown

Problem is you refilled the cart and didn't reset it properly so it looks like a new cart, check your other carts and see if gears or holes are wrong.

Pixma mx328 check ink u051

The error usually came out after you refill ink on the black cartridge...there is no way you can make the printer work without resetting the ink cartridge..

Try to reset the printer using this procedure.. it will help.
1. turn off the printer..
2. press/hold the stop/reset button..and press/hold power button too..
3 while holding power button, release the stop/reset button..
4. then press the stop/reset button twice..
5. release power button..and wait until the power button lights a steady/still green and says "idle"...
6. open the cover...take out both catridges.. then turn off the printer.
7.put back the cover then turn on...
8. now put the catridges back.. and wait for some time to return to display menu... then try to print...

The printer may still prompt a "black ink volume unknown and color ink volume unknown" but don't worry that won't affect the operation of the printer. And you will able to use your printer, fax and scanner.

Do this every time you refill the ink of the cartridges.

If you find this solution helpful please vote on this on the YES below..thanks..

Canon mx310 error message U051

This will clear your printer from displaying common printer errors like U053, U051 and U052. The importance of the "reset the cartridge" procedure is to avoid the printer from detecting your cartridge as reused one. The steps below is recommended to do after refilling an ink cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.

10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

What happened when ink ran out from a refilled cartridge and the printer detected it?
The printer will display an error U162 or U163. All functions of the all-in-one printer will stop and your printer will not work. The next thing you will know is you are in the front of a computer shop and buy a genuine canon cartridge.
But wait, there is still a way to fix this. Reset it again using a different procedure. Reset the detections of reusable cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer an turn it on again
2. After the printer initialize try to copy or print. The error will appear.
3. When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
4. Release the STOP/RESET button the the printer is restarting.
5. Wait for a few seconds and the pending print jobs will commence.

Canon MX330 - trying to use ADF. No doc inside on

Canon Pixma MX330, ADF error, Code : 2,103,0
Here's what I found. There were no stuck gears or pieces of plastic caught anywhere.
The ****** can still feed paper, except for (consistently) the last page -->error/stuck.
1) In order to CLEAR THE ERROR you need to do two things
a) & b):
a) Press OK, WITH THE HOOD OPEN, with a piece of paper loaded in the ADF, being careful to grab the paper manually as it comes out of the bottom of the hood.
b) Windex the strip of glass surface which sits under the ADF next to the platen. This needs to be done with attention to minute detail, and a bright LED flashlight; since ink smudges off of documents and collects on the glass with alarming frequency. The machine may think these smudges are caught/jammed paper.
2) In order to SCAN a stack of paper, add one blank sheet to the bottom of your document. This page will be the one that
fails to clear the ADF, generates an error, and must be manually cleared before the next job.
The rest of your pages will have already scanned.

Repeat Every Time You Use it
