Canon PRIXMA iP2600 Printer keeps jamming when loading paper.

I have had this printer for about a month without having any problems. Now all of a sudden, when trying to load the paper to try to prnt anything out, the printer will grab the bottom right of the paper and try to feed the paper unevenly causing a jam. I cannot print out anything at all because it keeps jamming. The printer has not been dropped nor mishandled in any way so I am completely perplexed by this problem. Can you help fix or diagnose this problem? If not, can you direct me in the right direction for some assistance? Anything you can do is appreciated. Thank you!

You have a small oyster cracker lodged in the paper path. Turn it over and shake it out good. see what falls out. OK it may not be an oyster cracker but that's what fell out of mine and now it works.

My canon ip2600 printer has a paper jam error, but there isn't.

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Canon pixma ip2600 load paper error when there is paper

Do you have the manual? If so, go to Cleaning the Printer and read Cleaning the Roller, make sure there are no foreign objects in the rear tray and try turning the printer Off then back On OR even a can of that compressed air to try blowing the inside of it out. If you don't have the manual you might find it online. I tried copying the Cleaning part but it wouldn't let me.

I have a canon IP2600 printer only 4 months old and not used too much. It just started to pull the paper to one side when I try to print then it says there is a paper jam. The paper has an indent/groove...

In many cases, forcing (pulling out) the jammed paper in the printer might caused severe damages on the gears or some parts on the mechanical stability.
Noise problem might occurred if some of the joints (parts) were dis-aligned. Dis-assemble carefully the printer, and look for that damage. Put some grease and assemble.

Paper feed is jamming ,I have not even gone through the original ink cartridges yet,so i haven`t done a lot printing

Things to do remove the papers jammed inside the printer.
  1. Please Turn off this Canon Pixma 2600 printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper or any piece of paper got trapped in the printer..
  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 by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Do it carefully with utmost care.
  8. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  9. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. Before inserting the Toner or Catridge, please wipe the roller with cloth gently.
  10. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
See alternative if the problem is still not solved.

alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Printer keeps on jamming paper

Dear all,
I will try to help you. Paper jam error may be caused by some possibilities. So, please notice this indication:
  • If the printer status is READY immediately after Power ON then Paper Jam Error message appears while feeding the paper: Sheet Feeder Unit is faulty or any other material (such as broken paper) present inside paper path blocking paper end to reach paper feed sensor.
  • If Paper Jam Error messages appears immediately after Power ON: Paper feed sensor or logic board is faulty
Corrective action:
  • Remove the material from paper path
  • Replace Sheet Feeder Unit
  • Replace Paper Feed Sensor / Logic Board
Please rate me as Fixya if you find this useful for you. Thanks.
