First – diagnose your problem. In my case the first roller which feeds the paper through the ADF (under small black flip up cover on top) was not turning. Hence no paper advance and error claimed a paper jam (it wasn’t – just a failure to advance paper)
 
The cause turned out to be a stuck gear turning that silver rod at the top. A bit of household oil has worked a charm.
 
To get at the gear, unhinge the ADF cover retaining tie (black flexible plastic stopping it opening all the way). Just lift it up and roll over towards printer.
Then unscrew one screw next to that tie. Gently prise plastic cover off by lifting up from left hand side (near that black tie). It should rotate off. Keep power on and fingers out.
 
Put a few drops of oil on top gear. Place paper in ADF and attempt a batch scan operation. Gears should turn and lubricate parts. Repeat.  Once working, replace cover, screw and tie.
 
Mine had seized months ago and is now working fine. Hope yours does too.
 
P.S. Get a Continuous Ink System (as sold on eBay) - awesome for an ink guzzler...

SOURCE: Canon MP460 Paper Jam

this is only a possible solution.make sure the paper is between 17  to 24 pounds thick.i once had a jamming problem and it turned out to be the printer which canon replaced under warranty.but in the process i learned paper thickness can make a difference. i was recommended 20 pounds by a staples employee.i hope this helps you.

Hello,

 

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to Paper Jam error messages even though there is no paper jam in printer . I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.

 

This issue could happen if there is an issue with any small paper jam in the Printer, or due to the communicational issue .

 

To isolate the issue, I recommend you to perform below steps.

 

Steps are:

--------------

 

1. Power OFF printer and then please Disconnect the Printer from Computer and then disconnect the Power cable of Printer from wall outlet.

 

2. Check thoroughly in Printer that there is no small piece of paper in the Printer.

 

3. Let the Printer be disconnected and idle for 5 minutes.

 

Meanwhile please perform further steps on Computer.

 

  Note: The below steps are applicable if you are using WINDOWS 2000/XP/VIsta Operating system in  your PC

 

  Steps are:

--------------------

 Perform the below steps to restart the print spooler :

1. Click Start>Run

2. Type services.msc

3. Click OK

4. A Window will pop up with so many services listed.

5. Scroll down to locate "print spooler" in the list, right click on it and click "Restart"

6. Restart the Computer.

 

Once if you are done with steps, please connect the Printer and then Power ON Printer and check the issue.

 

This should resolve the issue for you.

SOURCE: my canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?

give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

SOURCE: paper jam problem in pixma mp145. E3 error.

MP160 PIXMA paper feed jam E3 error. I completely solved this on my Canon MP160 printer but it is a common problem and the fix may work for others such as MP130 MP140 MP145 MP150 MP170 or MP180. With the problem I had, the printer would make the usual motor whirring noises but would not feed the paper. The usual c-clunk sound that indicated the feed roller has been engaged was not there. The screen warning said to remove jammed paper and the printer showed an E3 error.

The problem was caused by the ink cartridge carrier becoming stcky on its track and not fully returning to the rest position on the right side (as viewed from the front). The fix involved taking the printer apart and lubricating the cartridge carrier track and the ramps that lift the cradle that rises to cover the printheads. Unfortunately you have to dismantle the printer and separate the scanner unit to get to the lubrication points. Its not a quick fix.

When you have the printer apart you will see a prominent white lever held by a coiled spring just behind the rest position of the ink cartridge carrier. The lever is actuated by the ink cartridge carrier when it moves to the right. If the lever is not actuated, the motor drive will never engage the large grey feed roller and the paper in the hopper cannot be fed into the printer. Make sure to also put some lube onto the lever at the point where it is struck by the ink cartridge carrier.

SOURCE: My Canon MP530 indicates that I have a paper jam.

Hello there You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer Canon mp530 error 6a00


The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.
Clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like

MP530: After printing one page, it gives "Paper Jam" error, I open and close the ink cover, and print another page, with the resultant "Paper Jam" error, etc. Any solutions?


Either you have a bad sensor, or the sensor arm is bent so that it doesn't return properly after paper passes thru, It's hard to see, on the right side behind the platen roller, above the white guide plates.

Cannnon mp-530 shows 6a00


Hi
This is same as the wat full
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
