Can't print from Word 2007

I can print from Notepad, Adobe Reader, Execl 2007, Outlook 2007, just fine. When I try to print anything, including a new, blank document with the word test, I get an alarm on the printer and the error "Supply Rec. Paper" on the LCD screen.

I Googled it and was getting answers about things like feed tires, sensors, etc. However, if the other programs print fine, it seems more like a device setting or driver issue to me. I un-installed, downloaded and re-installed the latest drivers from Canon's web site.

BTW, this is on an XP Pro machine.

What is the default paper size you are using in Word?
It sounds as if you are sending a manual feed instruction to the printer
("Use this non-standard size of paper and wait for the user to press button on printer before proceeding").  Check page settings and try a different standard size, then check your Print Settings to see if you have maual feed enabled.

Note that, in Word, you *must* set the paper size, type and tray from Page Setup. Setting it from printer Properties at print time will be ignored.
