My Canon L80 receives faxes fine, but when I try to send a fax the sheet goes partially in on one side and then jams. Opened it up and everything looked normal, no paper clips or anything stuck in there. Is there a way to fix this? Called Canon and they told me that the nearest service center is over an hour away.

Re: paper jam sending faxes
It is the document stop arm that is broken.You can remove it.The machine will work without it.
Just make sure you remove the document stop arm and not one of the other sensor flags in the document feeder.

it is the paper jam sensor thats giving a false reading. It can b a very small piece of paper that u can easily remove with ur hand or by blowing. Open it, remove ink catridges, blow it thoroughly n make sure all sensors are clean of dirt. Also mke sure tht the paper u use is preheat to avoid these paper jams. Hpe it helps, pliz vote. Good luck.
There is most likely a piece of trapped paper where you cannot see it and it is covering a jam sensor. Try to cheat the machine by turning it off and remove all the printing paper. When you turn it on look down where you see the paper normally feeds and see if you can see any rollers turning. Then, try to take a sheet of paper and feed it through were the printing paper usually goes. Open up the cover where the cartridg goes as well and you may see the trapped paper move when you feed through your piece of paper. Remove the cartridge if necessary to get a good look and see if paper is trapped near.
If you can copy the document, then you can send it BUT the receiving fax will probably have restricted length fax pages to prevent jammed documents at the sending end causing the receiver to use all the paper. If you have access to a service manual you can restrict the length of faxes sent and received on your machine. But it may be the receiver with the restriction.
if you look at the top piece of paper in the cassette is there a smug mark or wrinkle in the paper. you my just need to clean the feed roller. ( black or gray roller ) . I'm not sher on this model if it is a rear paper feed or a cassette from under if it is a back feed one look in side the paper shoot of any fournobject is in there. Hope for the best.
After what operation does the machine report the jam. If it is trying to print something and the paper doesn't pull, then it will report a paper jam, even though the paper didn't move. If this is the case then the paper feed tire behind the toner is dirty. Cleaned with rag and rubbing alcohol.
003 - Recording paper jammed when feeding from the 3rd cassette. Remove the jammed paper.
(1) Open the Printer Cover.
(2) Remove the jammed paper.
(3) Slide out the Paper Cassette.
(4) Remove the jammed or wrinkled paper and reload the recording paper into the paper cassette.
Caution: Make sure that the paper is set under the clips of the Paper Cassette. You can load about 500 sheets with standard weight paper (20 lb. or 75 g/m2).
