    I'm running into the same problem. Have opened all areas of the printer to make sure any paper is cleared. (Had 2 or 3 jams in a row.) Now the "Ready" and "Alarm" lights won't stop blinking. Have tried the factory reset as described in these answers. The lights continue. Cannot find any paper jam and cannot try printing again.

Use the following steps to perform a Factory Reset:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer.
  3. Turn the printer back on.
  4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.
  5. Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
  6. Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

    Front Cover Open:
    The front cover is open. Please make sure that the front cover is closed. Look at the door switch and make sure that it is not recessed or being obstructed.

    The door may be closed, but the switch is not making contact with it.. Open the door and look along the edge of the fram and you will see the switch. My guess would be that the switch is recessed.

My canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?


give this a try

  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 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. Don't force anything, though. 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.
  8. 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.
  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 :
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.

Alarm light is flashing and can not print


Hi
Try this
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

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.

E 2 problem


I've encountered that before, i cleaned that the printer for the paper jam. Then i turn on the printer, it shows an error and flashes green. What we are going to do is to uninstall the current driver, and reinstall it... After that, try to turn it on and wait for few minutes to run the printer properly... try it...
