This can be fixed at home. It's a design flaw that locates a little paddle right on the edge of an infared light beam when the paddle is resting where it should be when no paper is in the printer. If they had extended this black plastic paddle ever so slightly toward the front of the printer, it would surely interrupt the beam as it is supposed to do. Raise the platten section as if you were going to change the ink cartridges. Locate the white plastic plate with 8 little white rollers along its front edge. About 1.5" from the right edge of this plate is slot about .25" wide, just under a metal bar going across the printer. Down in this slot is a little black plastic finger that gets lifted up when a piece of paper goes through. This little finger is the lower end of the paddle above. Poke gently on this little finger with a little stick or dowel rod. Make sure there's no paper under it. Put the lid down and try it. If still giving the paper jam error, you'll have to take the whole blooming cover off to get to the paddle. I put a piece of black electrician's tape over the paddle to extend it forward to be sure to interrupt the beam. The key to opening the cover is to start with the gray plastic pieces on each side. They move down toward the floor about 1/8" to come off. Be gentle. Try never to tip the printer on its side ink will run and make a mess. I highly recommend a pair of rubber gloves once inside -my fingers got green ink on them and it doesn't come off. Good luck.

I was having the same problem. Talk about frustrating. Sometimes up to 45 min of dicking around to get it to print one page. Here is what I did. And I know it sounds crazy but it worked for me....

SOLUTIONL: Cancel any currently pending print jobs. Press the settings button. Arrow down below the paper type setting (currently set to "Plain paper") and change the speed from "Standard" to "Fast". This did the trick for me and now I am feeding paper and printing like a mad man.

It really doesn't make complete sense to me why this would fix the problem and why so many people are having the same problem... but my rationale is as follows.... This is happening to many people ... not merely an isolated incident... so most likely this is an engineering defect. Something in the way they designed and built this thing is less than perfect. I am guessing that somewhere within the firmware that runs this printer there is a section that says start counting the number of milliseconds from the time the paper feed is started until it is place to begin printing (probably a sensor somewhere), and if too much time has passed then there must have been a paper jam. This allotment of time may have been set to a very small window of time...(tighter tolerances usually means better quality, but not in this instance.) So by setting the speed to "Fast" we are able to get the paper in position before the window of time expires.

I have MP460. It can't load paper and all it does is to fail to load papers while making a loud hammering sound like it normally does. I pressed menu on the printer, go to settings then pressed clean the roller and it started to work again perfectly. It is as good as new and like is now printing like a mad man.

Hope this solves your problem to. Good luck.

I'm having this same problem: it's giving me an error message saying that the paper is jammed and i need to fix it and press OK. well, i fixed it, and it continued to give me this error message even when i removed all the paper, put in new, less, or more paper... it just keeps telling me the same thing. i can't even use the scanner because all it cares about is this stupid imaginary paper jam. in a fit of rage i was mashing in the 'reset' button and for a moment it appeared i had fixed it, but when i went to scan something the error message popped up again. i'm about to throw the damn thing out the window. what do i need to do?!

Go to Menu, Settings, and then click on Reset Settings. Doing that within 2 minutes of looking at the printer, after my mother took half an hour looking through EVERY setting, I feel like a God.

SOURCE: My canon ip2600 printer has a paper jam error, but there isn't.

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.

Hi,

To fix this kind of error, remove the ink cartridge and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it.Check if anything comes out.If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of card stock 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. Open up the printer and clean the insides with a soft cloth and a brush. That should remove all the bits of paper inside.The teeth on the roller sides may have some dirt stuck on them which does not allow the rollers to roll freely and hence is as bad as paper jam. The idea is that the rollers do not roll whether because of paper or some dirt on the roller teeth. They have to be cleaned.
Thank you !!

Paper jam on screen will not reset


To clear the error message Paper Jam after you removed the jammed paper, open and close the scanner cover.
If you still receive the error message, a small piece of paper may be stuck inside your Brother machine.

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.
