Cause –

The main cause of displaying the 4103 error code is the current print settings that are not allowing your printer to print a document.

Solution –

As the error 4103 in the canon printer is due to current print settings, you need to change the print settings. Here’s the guide for changing your print settings.

If Page Size can’t select Size to print a document, you can specify the paper’s height and width called custom size. You can change the paper setting in size options and Custom Size. Here are both ways to change the page settings. See below;

Press the Stop button if your printer is working or you’ve already given the command to Print.

Important to know –

  • Different printer drivers’ paper settings and registered paper information may cause an error; therefore, try to customize the setting same in both.
  • You can’t print with the custom size you saved recently when you close the Canon printer software.
  • The maximum custom size is 3.2m.

All these guidelines are suitable for duplex printing. With the setting changes, you should try printing. Hopefully, this time you won’t see the 4103 error code.
