Every time I print a document off the internet it prints and then goes to an error asking to load up letter (ltr) paper. This paper is not available here and so there is no way of remedying the error. I have had to turn off the power and wait a long time for it to clear and turn it back on. But now I have a fax waiting in memory and don't want to loose it. What do I do?

Re: printing off the internet
Where is here? If you dont use standard letter size paper do you use A4? If so, you must change the settings in the printer so that the default paper size in the tray is set for A4. If this is not the issue let me know and we can try something else.

Check the paper size settings to match the loaded paper. This would happen (for example) if you have loaded A4 paper but your driver is set to print on letter format. Letter is wider than A4 by 6mm and while the printer is trying to print near to the right side, assuming the paper is wider, part of the ink goes on the paper support. Other reason may be the paper size in the document is set to be larger than the loaded paper format and driver prints only what can be fit on the loaded paper.
If you normally print on letter sized paper, then some program you are using is trying to print on A4 paper (PDF files often the culprit) and the default on most printers is that if they do not have the paper loaded it will ask for it from the MP tray. You can check your printer settings as you may be able to tell the printer to automatically sub letter paper when A4 is requested.
You can program the copier to just print from the letter tray by choosing the letter cassette on the display and then immediately hit the additional functions key....select copy settings and scroll through until you see the store current settings option which will make it default to the letter cassette every time. Try to do an internet search for the ir2200 operators manual. A lot of the time the book is available for free download and the customer settings are outlined in great detail in that book. Good luck.
Check the paper size setting in the printer. Set it to the paper size you normally use such as A4 and the default tray. Check the default paper size in the printer driver in your computer and the default tray. Finally, check the paper size of the document you are printing. If all these match, it should not try to be smart and ask you to feed paper.
I think I solved my printer problem: Chang the paper size to LTR in the printer panel. then go to compter printer setup and choose printing preferences and choose page setup and chang the paper size to Letter (LTR) also. hope this is helpful.
I had same thing happen after a fresh Windows install. It was hard to figure out since it had been working fine until then, but luckily it is simple to fix. Open the Start Menu > Settings > Printers and Faxes folder. Then right-click on the Canon MF4100 Series printer and choose Printing Preferences. In there, change the Paper Size to Letter (instead of A4). You may also have to do this in the Print setup for whatever program you're using to print.
