Forcing a piece of cardstock as far into the feed as I could, then removing it fixed this problem for me.

Hopefully it will work for you!

This may not help, just humor... I fixed it... my 2 year old stuck a GoGurt wrapper inside of the printing tray... Apparently, It's now his trash can!

SOURCE: Canon MX300 Paper Jam

I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.

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.

Try checking that a foreign object is in the paper feed rollers- do this by inserting a thin piece of plastic about 2 cm wide through the rollers from the paper exit side. Plastic like that from a shirt box (about 2cm wide by 20 cm long and 1 mm thick works well. I have solved this problem many times with my mx300 and it clears out objects which have droppped into the paper feed, such as Pens , yes pens. and paper clips etc which are otherwise hard to detect on this printer.

Paper jam with no paper??


I did a search on the FixYa site and there are quite a few paper jam issues with the MX300. One that was quite interesting was remedied by Canon and they replaced the printer with a refurbished one. Seems like Canon also knows they have an issue. I have included the link to the above solution from the FixYa site as it has the Canon tech support number. Hope this helps all out there with the same issue.
