In my experience the usual reason for this is something (obstruction) in the paper feed. Make sure you have a really good look right down inside the paper path as quite small objects will stop a correct feed. The fact that it is one side makes me thing something is in there. I have serviced printers before with coins, paperclips etc that have found a way in.

False paper jam error code 1311.


Don't shake printer. Check top panel front panel and rear panel. The switches have to click to reset so it all jaded to be opened regardless if you know there is no paper inside. Clean the paper dust with alcohol to get the paper dust off.

Paper jam and no paper jam


Probably paper never being picked up and not feeding out of cassette which explains why you see a jam indicated but cannot find a jammed paper. Probably time to rebuild the cassettes.

My Canon Pixma MP600R insists that paper is jamed in machine, despite the fact that jam has been cleared and paper is being ejected when machine is switched on


The simplest thing would be to try unplugging the printer from the power source. Let it rest for 5 - 10 minutes then plug back in to the power supply and see if that resolves the problem.

If not you are going to need to do a thorugh inspection to verify that all paper remnants have been removed.

The following is for the MP600:

Issue: ERROR LCD: The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press [OK].
Solution: Removing paper jams MP600


Removing Obstructions or Jammed Paper If [Paper output slot - The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press OK] appears on the LCD, follow this procedure to clear the paper jam Clearing paper jams from the auto sheet feeder (ASF) or paper output slot
Clearing paper jams inside the printer
Clearing credit card-sized or 4" x 6" paper jammed inside the printer

ASF / Paper Output Slot
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Remove paper from the ASF.

  3. Gently pull the jammed paper out.
    1. If paper is visible from the ASF, use both hands to pull the paper out slowly.
    2. If paper is visible from the paper output slot, use both hands to pull the paper out slowly.

      The above illustration shows a PIXMA MP500.

  4. If the paper tears and a piece of that remains inside the printer, open the scanning unit (printer cover) and remove the paper from inside the printer.

    Note:
    Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.


  5. Turn on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    (If the jammed paper remains in the printer, the paper may be automatically ejected.)

  6. Load paper back into the ASF.

  7. Press to clear the message and continue printing. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.

Clearing credit card-sized paper jammed inside the printer
Credit card-sized and 4" x 6" sized paper must be loaded properly. If this media is not loaded properly, it will feed into the printer and will not exit. Credit card-sized paper should only be loaded in the ASF and in portrait orientation. 4" x 6" sized paper can be loaded in the ASF or cassette. But must be loaded portrait orientation.
If credit card-sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the ASF and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.

  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Load the same paper type that is jammed inside the printer in portrait orientation.

    05sj00147_01.jpg

  3. Power on the printer.
    The paper stock in the ASF will automatically feed the jammed paper from the printer.

  4. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.

If 4" x 6" sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the cassette and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Open the rear cover.

  3. Fold in four a piece of letter-sized plain paper.

  4. Push in the folded paper until it hits the jammed paper.

    05sj00147_02.jpg

  5. If the jammed paper is visible from inside the printer area, pull it out and proceed to step 7.

  6. If the jammed paper cannot be pulled out, push in the folder paper from the rear so the jammed paper is in between the feed rollers.

  7. Pull out the folded paper and close the rear cover.

  8. Power on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    The jammed paper should automatically eject.

  9. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.

It looks like the print carriage was stuck. Turn on off the printer, manually move the ink cartridge back and forth a few times, look underneath for dirt or small piece of paper (usually happens when you have jammed paper) or use a blower to clean any foreign objects.

It says the paper is jammed, but there's no paper in it!!


This is an awesome printer. Did you know it can duplex (print on both sides of the paper) automatically? The jam "could" be in the duplexer on the back or, the duplexer unit isn't locked into place.

Unplug the printer and open the rear door, check for visible paper jam, remove, close door.

There's also access to the feed mechanism from the bottom of the printer.

Unplug printer.

(1) Remove the Cassette. (paper tray on bottom of printer)

If the paper is loaded in the Auto Sheet Feeder (on back of printer), remove the paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder and close the Paper Support.
(2) Stand the machine with the left side down.
(3) Slowly pull the jammed paper out while pulling the green cover toward you.


Caution
Set the machine back to its original position immediately after removing the jammed paper.
(4) If any paper is sticking out of the Cassette, reload the paper in the Cassette.
Reload paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder, if necessary.
(5) Insert the Cassette into the machine.
(6) Press the OK button on the machine.


Some of these instructions were copied from the online/downloadable printer manual from Canon's web site: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/

Dimantle my canon pixma ip3000


I had this problem yesterday with my iP3000, but it turned out to be my own fault. I had randomly pushed the control panel buttons, as I tend to do that with printers, while I was trying to quickly cancel a print job.

The symptoms:
roller wouldn't advance, a lot of noise like it was trying to advance, then two yellow light error flashes. I knew it wasn't out of paper.

By randomly pushing buttons, I clicked the Paper Feed Switch which toggled from top sheet feeder to cassette.

I downloaded the e-user's guide from Canon and learned what those control buttons are. I simply clicked the Paper Feed Switch and it toggled back to top sheet feeder. That fixed it for me.
