Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Paper jam The printer keeps saying there is a jam in the output tray but there's nothing there. Have tried turning it off and unplugging it. I've gone to the print que and there is nothing to print. I can't access the menu key becuase it won't let me get past the fact there's a paper jam. Any ideas?

    Printer keeps saying there is a paper jam. Paper feeds crooked. It pulls from the right. I have opened it up, there is no paper or anything else in there. I have blown it out with canned air. I have changed the ink cartridges. Nothing has resolved it yet. Please help.

Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"


I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

Reset the printer by turning it off, then turn it back on.

if this doesn't solve the problem theres probably a paper jam, even a very small part of paper can cause the jam or it can be caused by pretty much anything thats not supposed to get inside the printer.

here are my instructions for clearing paper jams:

  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 byholding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep thepaper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pullingout 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. Dothis step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without anyobvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner orink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn theprinter 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 :
Loada piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resumebutton (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to theprinter picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.



Here is what canon suggest:

Remove the paper following the procedure below.
(1) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Rear Tray or from the Paper Output Slot, whichever is easier.

If the paper tears and a piece remainsinside the machine, turn the machine off, open the Scanning Unit(Printer Cover) and remove it.


Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine.

After removing all paper, close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover), and turn it back on.

bullet_s.gif If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine off and turn it back on. The paper will be ejected automatically.

(2) Reload the paper in the machine, and press the OK button on the machine.
If you turned off the machine in step (1), all print jobs in queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary

Also, have a look at what other people have said/ done with the same problem:

Says Paper Jam but ther is no paper jam


It appear from here that the exit sensor may be dirty and you can use canned air and blow it out.

You may also be missing the paper out sensor that is located at the bottom of the printer oposite of the paper tray when you pull it out. When the flag arm has fallin out, it will give a false paper jam error when the last sheet has printed from the tray, not knowing or detecting that the tray is now empty.

Photo tray output problem


I fixed it just now and easiest, following the step below:

1) Can you see the blue thing between the paper tray and the printing tray? That's the Output Tray! Just press it back in as much as u could
(but don't break it). Then you trying print (testing), they might have a paper jam but its normal. After the jam, they will tell to dismantle the jammed paper at the back.

2) Shut down (or restart) your printer (unplug the power switch or it won't work). Plug it in again and then just simply its done!

3) If it won't work, repeat the previous step again... Good Luck ;)

Paper output tray


check for paper jams, try turning completely off, and unplug, replug, turn back on (to reset itself). No luck, try to see uninstalling and reinstalling will correct it.

Paper jam


I continued reading what others did with the same problem and one said to move the printer head to the left and look to the right way under there. Sure enough there WAS a tiny piece of paper in it and once we removed it, the printer spit out a small photo paper and all was corrected. I appreciate all of the comments posted on the internet... Thanks!
