Canon PIXMA iP5300 InkJet thinks paper output tray is closed (it isnt) and won't print!

Hi - would really appreciate some help - My 2 month old Canon PIXMA iP5300 InkJet thinks it's paper output tray is closed, (error number : 1250) and so it just won't print! (Its still under warrranty but I really need not to have to send it away right now if this is something I can resolve) Does any one know what sensor is getting confused to give this error? And is there a reset or repair solution!? Thanks! MJ

    Infernal machine thinks the paper out tray is open. When it isn't. Verging on smashing to pieces

    I'm having the exact same problem with mine. I wish there was some way to disable the error message, even though it thinks the printer tray is closed IT'S OBVIOUSLY NOT!!! I think it happened after a friend came over and a small guitar amplifier took a tumble ontop of it. However I'm not sure as I hadn't used the machine previous to that.

    same problem here with a canon 1p4300. wrote to Canon. they said will have to get it repaired. only had it 1 year!

    i too have the same problem on an IP4300. this was a poor purchase and clearly a rip off. if you spend hard earned money on a product it should just work and do the job it is meant to do

It was rather easy to figure out how to pop the silver plastic outter casing off, but now that I have it off I still can't seem to identify where the switch that signals the paper outter tray is.

You have to push the switch up. I put a cotton ball under the switch. It sticks out a little in front. But it worked!

I've been having the exact same problem. Apparently its from a switch that doesn't signal to the printer that the output door is closed. On the printer, it looks like there should be a small plastic piece on the output door that pushes against the switch when its closed, thereby signalling that the door is shut. The switch is located just above an electronic switchboard that is directly behind the panel that has the two long rectangular buttons and the USB input on the right side of the front of the printer (when looking directly at the printer, that is). I have the cover off of my machine, but don't really know if the switch is supposed to be pushed down, or up, to signal that the door is closed. According the forums below, once I get that figured out, then it should be fixed. None of the forums clarify whether the switch is supposed to be pushed down or up. I'm no technical whiz, so it's not so obvious to me as it may be to other people. If it doesn't work, then I'll let you all know. If it does, you may never hear from me again as I'll likely forget all about this posting.

The most difficult part of it all is getting the cover off. Make sure you have a few flathead screw drivers, or something else that is about 3mm wide, thin but sturdy, and then insert them into the 4 slits in the printer before pushing hard to release the plastic hooks that lock the cover to the base of the printer. I'm sure I'm not making any sense, but a forumer at the xkcd website explains it pretty well. It just takes a bit of force. Hope it works!

What does close the feeder tray mean


The Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Printer has two paper sources for printing. Likely the top feeder tray is not completely closed (it is possible you do not have the printer set up to feed from both which may cause the error).

See the Quick Start Guide and the Picture Below:

Error e03, but there is no jammed paper

Paper Output Tray is closed / Paper jam


Summary
If the Paper Output Tray is closed, open it. The machine resumes printing.


If opening the Paper Output Tray does not resolve the problem, or if the tray was open to begin with, the paper may be jammed. Remove the jammed paper, reload paper properly in the printer, then press the Black or Color button.

Error 1250 on PIXMA ip4300 printer. Despite open tray messae will not o away or allow printing to start.


Hello,

the error message means there is something wrong with the printer and if the problem is not attended to, the error message will not go away.

In this case, the error message showing on your canon ip4300 is related to a door problem. It has something to do with the front door of your printer. I think the front door of your printer is closed of which is supposed to be opened.

So, the solution is to Open the paper output tray of your printer and the problem should be solved.

Good luck.

I can't print


Hi Paul.
Try lightening settings from Windows Control Panel>Printers and Devices>right-click XEROX>settings.
My CMYK and mono printers are SAMSUNG, last one was HP.
The menu screenshot should hopefully be similar to Xerox.
As only the XEROX is doing this, I suspect your XEROX specific user settings in Windows are set too dark.
The signature was probably done on paper, which is fibrous when magnified.
When scanned, the slight shadows between the fibers are converted to random white and slightly off-white pixels.
To the human eye it appears white, but when darkened, the not pure white pixels are visible, creating noise.
Besides setting darkness to normal or light, you could also try setting ECO to on. If the xerox has economy printing.

Paper output tray is closed


I had the same problem with the paper output tray. I solved it by removing the switch by removing one screw and tying the wire leads together. Now the printer thinks the tray is always open.
