The most common factor here is moisture in the paper if it has sat too long. Try just line feeds to see if the transport is at fault or the paper is the problem and inspect the paper feed rollers to see if any debris is fouling things up.

Why does ptinter blink orange 3 tmes and greenonce


Three orange flashes generally means there is a paper jam or paper fragment in the print path or paper feed. Search carefully as it may be an ink soaked wad crammed into the cleaning station.

Why does the paper jam and a loud noise come from the iP90 printer?


Most likelt to be a foreign object or wad of paper crammed into part of the paper feed roller. The first thing to do is turn it upside down and give a few sharp solid taps on the bottom casing. Then check to see if anything falls out. Also check the leading edge of the paper that didnt go through for marks that might show where it was stopped. If you are sure there is nothing to stop paper feeding through, check at each end of the print head path inside for a clump of ink soaked paper - remove if found. Try feeding a sheet through again. If the paper doesnt feed, try slipping a thin stiff card or plastic sheet back through the feed mechanism from the front. If that doesnt go through, you will have to disassemble the printer to find the problem.

Paper tray in my image class MF8350 won't close


There's probably a piece of paper wadded up in the feed mechanism. Carefully remove the paper tray and look in the feed rollers. Also be sure all the "guides" are in their proper orientation.

Keeps showing paper jam


Pull the tray all the way out, there's probably a piece of paper wadded up in the feed mechanism. Double check to see if the drive belts are clean and free of dust and that all the wheels are turning.

When printing, the paper will start to feed and then pulls to the left, wads up and jams. This happens with both Tray 1 and Tray 2.


Hi You have a small paper jam in the front of your machine,
remove all the trays and the toners have a look under the machine in the place of tray 2 you will see a slot that the paper should feed in to. Fold a sheet of A4 in 1/2 lengthways push it in to the slot and with luck it will come out in the machine, holding on to both ends work the paper along the slot moving it up and down until your paper jam come out
if this is useful please rate me.

Turn printer on ERROR comes on screen. Carriage jam Open Door clear carriage jam and then press OK to continue. I do this nothing found in carriage close Error comes up the same?? What to do?


Joe,
Pull all of the paper out of the machine. Look for a wadded up small piece of paper. After you look for it. Examine the door slide tray where paper is stored. Look at take-up rollers... make sure slide drawers close easily...examine door where print cartridge is....Look at (on side) feed tray...Paper feed tray... If you fail get a flashlight and take another look it does not have to be a very large piece of paper...good luck

Canon MP730 Paper feed is not working correctly.....keeps jamming and feeds the paper incorrectly


There are two feeders on this MP730. There is the sheet feeder on top and there is the paper feeder on the back. You can have problems with both.

The sheet feeder on top.
If the problem is things go through somewhat sideways, and if this is the problem, stuff some postit notes between the back grey thing and the feeder tray to eliminate this problem. Add or subtract to the wad to make it right.

If the problem is it does not grip the sheet, what I used to do is to help it through by one sheet at a time, painful. I got frustrated with this so for scanning, I have a Snap Scan 1500, which is faster and better.

The paper feeder.
A small piece of paper left in the paper infeed path can cause a major problem. You cannot have anything in the paper path that will skew the paper, so you must get any little bit of restriction out of there.
As the printer gets older, you will have to produce your own guides to prevent this skewing, as the guides on the printer do not do this well. I use clamps and wooden guides to keep things in line.
