If the blank ink still cames in the printer means that their still ink inside the cartridge, kindly check if there are papers left inside the printer when it was removed if there is you have to take it off.

Turn off the printer, delete the remaining files that is to printed on the printer dialog box by just double clicking the icon found at the bottom of the task bar.

Turn on the power of the printer, have a printer test to test if the pritned copy is good. Clean the head, or the nozzle of the printer at the maintenance tab.

If the problem still arises means the head align was damage or mess align that happend when the paper was remove forcely.

That's all
Thank you.

Canon 3010 problem jam indecate

If the error indicator light is lit, then the Canon printer is jammed. To fix a paper jam you must remove the paper tray, disconnect the AC power adapter, wait 5 seconds, then plug the printer back in. If the jammed paper does not automatically eject, carefully remove the paper manually. To help prevent further jamming, fan the paper in the paper tray to prevent the paper sticking together.

Paper jam errror in canon ip2680 printer

Paper jams are quite a common problem faced by printer users.

Shutting off the printer and later restarting it can also cause the cartridge to move thus resulting in the tearing of your paper. Hence it is highly recommended that, in case of a paper jam, you leave your printer and computer on.

To remove a paper that's jammed, simply turn your printer around and look for the rear access door. This is mostly covered by a longish, horizontal flap that can be flipped open. You will find the jammed paper the moment you open the door. Some legacy printers have a rotating knob that turns the rollers so as to remove the jammed paper to the rear. This looks quite similar to the knob you find on a typewriter. However, newer printers don't have such knobs anymore. You will find the jammed paper placed in the back of the printer. Gently pull it out without affecting the rollers or touching any of the internal machinery. Avoid pulling the paper out with too much force. The paper should smoothly slide out. If it doesn't or if it is torn in many smaller parts then it means that the paper has been crushed. If this is the case then use a brush to gently move the paper that's caught in the rollers. The brush can also be used to clear away the smaller scraps of paper that are scattered in the innards of the printer. Make sure that you avoid touching the roller and the inner components while doing so.

Paper jam message does not clear after paper jam has been removed

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your copier
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the copier
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your copier

Rec. Paper Jam slide platen left

There may still be a small sliver of paper somewhere along the paper path. It only takes one small piece to interfere with the mechanism that detects jams and causes the copier to stop working. Since the copier gives you an indication of where the jam is occurring, I would focus my attention in that area, removing trays, using a small flashlight to get a really good look inside.

Paper Jam error - red light flashing, but no paper jam!

There may be some tiny shard of paper stuck in some inaccessible part of your printer. Examination with a bright light source may help you find it.
