Re: MX920 says printer is out of paper but the paper is full

This isn't really an answer to the question, is it? 

 

I'm running Yosemite 10.10.2 on a powerbook. I'm printing a document from a web page viewed through chrome (Version 41.0.2272.101 (64-bit).

 

Yesterday, I printed just fine. Today, I cannot get the paper to revert to the lower tray. The printer is set for 8.5x11, I'm trying to print 8.5x11. I have restarted the printer and I have removed the printer and added it back to the my settings on the powerbook. 

 

The question is, is there something with the trays that needs to be reset to get it to print properly? The lower tray has paper; we have never used the upper tray. 

 

So, no, your printer isn't automatically selecting the tray based on paper size and media.

Re: MX920 says printer is out of paper but the paper is full

Hi mitchlund,

 

If you save the webpage as a PDF file from Google Chrome and then try to print it from Adobe Reader, are you able to print it from the lower cassette tray without error?

Re: MX920 says printer is out of paper but the paper is full

Why won't envelopes print from the upper tray?

 

And when I put the appropriate paper in the upper tray,

why does it print from the lower tray?

 

I find the 922 to be an unsatisfactory product.

Re: MX920 says printer is out of paper but the paper is full

To answer your question.  No, there is no setting with the trays that needs to be reset. 

 

However, I've found that sometimes when printing from Chrome the paper size setting will change in the browser.  This causes the "auto paper select" function of the printer to fail. Basilly the application is telling printer to print in a paper size other than 8.5x11.

 

Make sure that you change the paper type to "Letter or 8.5x11" within the computer application that you're printing from.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: MX920 says printer is out of paper but the paper is full

I got my daughter a MX920 last month and she got the same problem printing from her ipad.  At first the problem seems inconsistent - she can print something some times and ran into "out of paper (upper)..." error some other time.  What I have noticed is that the errors seem to happen whenever she prints from certain app such as camera roll, or printing certain image file.  Reading the response from Canon support, it does sound like the app would dictate what paper to use when print.  And I suppose it makes sense for the picture/camera app to tell the printer to use picture paper (from upper tray) to print an image file.

 

To work around the problem, I've asked her, instead of printing the picture directly from the camera roll, copy the image and paste it into some notepad app (notability is what she has) and print from there.  Meanwhile, I have the print setting sets to Letter as the paper size.  And it prints without a problem.

 

Hope it helps.

Re: MX920 says printer is out of paper but the paper is full

So, basically what Canon is saying, is "You can only print CERTAIN sized documents from the lower tray.  Even though the tray is fully adjustable to accomodate most any custom size, if you try to select and enter a custom size, we're going to force the printer to print from the upper tray.  For no real reason.  And just to make it even MORE frustrating, the upper tray only allows about half the adjustment potential of the lower tray."

Re: MX920 says printer is out of paper but the paper is full

Had this issue with a client's printer.  I found that mpligon's response to this problem was the most effective. 

 

Working with an Apple MacBook Pro, unknown OS X.

 

1. I went to Finder, then System Preferences.

2. Under System Preferences, select Printer & Scanner.

3. Remove the problematic printer.

4. Restart the device.

5. After the reboot, go back into Printer and Scanner and add the Printer back.

 

Note:  I did find that when I intially went into the Printer and Scanner page, that the printer with the problem was showing Idle and a yellow caution dot was by the Idle.  After the reboot and adding the printer, it was a green dot and Idle. 

 

Thanks mpligon!
