Sounds like your machine needs new rollers.. pick up roller and feed rollers..

Or something is blocking the paper path?

Clean the machine

I would suggest removing the ink cartridge

get a lint free cloth, a can of air, some q-tips and flash light and a lint free cloth.

Open the machine and blow it out with a can of air,

Look in it with a flash ligth and clean with the cloth or q-tipw and a small drop of the alcohol.

Clean the rollers in there with the cloth a slight bit damp, you will probably see the cloth get dirty from this.

Blow with air, let it dry out a bit..
put the ink back in, start it up and try again.

I believe there is a button that will feed paper through. do that then go to your print driver and print a test page.

This is what I do with my ink jet printer and usually helps it. I have never replaced the rollers, but clean them once in a while..

I repair Laser Copiers and Printers.. I have no ideal where to get parts for an ink jet machine.. usually suggest to through them away as they as designed to be disposal..

I hope this helps..

Does not sound like a paper jam problem but a sensor problem sensor acurator is broken or out of place or the sensor is bad worse case the control that the sensors reports to is bad. Check you Output Bin Sensor acurator.

I installed a new black ink cartgage and printed a alignment page. After alignment was finished I tried to print an envelope through microwsoft word and received a jam message. I have no paper missing on...

in the back of the printer, there is a plastic door try to dismount check if there is some thing triggers the "jam " error put it again and check, if not, try by your hand to put the head on far left side, some jam errors are from lost head position , then check the rolling rod it has plastic finger looks like half-round, if this finger is jammed and it's tip is not smooth with paper flow it will trigger paper jam
this plastic finger might jammed before and strongly removed the jammed paper which might changed it's curvature hopefully it work

I have a canon pixma pi1800 i will not take the paper... it keeps saying paper jammed!! i tried cleaning rollers etc... tried printing a test shhet.. it says printing finished but i hadnt done it as it...

Here's a few things to try :

1. Blow it out with compressed air blower .especially the rollers and the paper feed area make sure there are no bits of paper or dust in the paper feed area and in the front access area that could be causing the jam.

2. Verify that the cartridge carriage moves to the service area when the front door is opened (as if to change tanks)

3. Verify that the timing belt, drive belt, gearing and rollers all look normal.

4. With the computer off, unplug the printer's power cord and USB cord for about 3-5 min

after plug it back if the problem still persists then move to the next step
6. Completely uninstall the printer's driver and software. Then reinstall the printer's drivers only.

Retry after each step.hope this helps

Poor Printer Quality

If you have the old drum put it back in and see what happens to the copy. if is better, then yu may have a bad new drum. They do have them. Poor copy quality is normally drum or toner in these Brothers. This model is an excellent machine by the way.

My cannon MP530 has a paper jam but there is no paper and the feed switch isn't working i've tried turning it off aswell as the computer for the night and nothing....any ideas

There is another paper jam door on the back side of the printer incase you didnt know . I had a paper jam and could not see just by lifting top of printer. You also may have a small pice of paper triggering the sensor.
