Hello,

You could try this, but there is no guarantee. There are a lot of sensor in the paper path of a Canon printer. When these sensors get stuck in the up position, pushed up when paper is present, you get the paper jam alarm when no paper jam is present.

The trick to try that sometimes works is to run some index card stock through. Insert the index card stock in the paper tray, run a print test and as it runs put some gentle firm pressure on the card stock to ensure it travels smoothly. Once it is done the sensor may have reset itself. In lieu of card stock you can use a thick magazine cover and cut it to size of an 81/2 x 11 piece of paper.

If this works great. If it doesn't let me know and please don' t bother to rate this if it fails. It works some of the time and not most of the time.

Thanks,
Worldvet

Take any paper out of the paper feeder and get a plastic ruler the softer the better lift the top of the printer up so you can see where the print cartridges are now push the ruler down through the paper feed roller be careful because you could break the rollers go from left to right right to left twice and check for any debris once you have done this unplug the printer for about 20 seconds then plug back in and let it reset then try copying or printing a doc and see how you go!

PIXMA 450...Keep getting paper jam message and I can't see any paper bits anywhere. Trying to open the machine from the back to look inside. Have removed the 4 screws on the back and still can't remove...


Hi

The paper jammed can be found in the paper tray, remove the paper at the paper tray and inspect the roller for small pieces of paper jammed.

The paper can be found in the ink cartridge compartment, open the cartridge door and remove the ink cartridges, look for posibble paper jammer. Also once remove, check also the cartridge carrier if does not stuck up or jammed (cause this might me the problem). Turn off your printer and then move the cartridge head using your hand moving to the from right to left side and from left side to right side for 2-3 times. Move it gently.

Paper can be found in the rear access door if it is accessible. Inspect some paper jammed there.

Please let me know if you need more help

Printer says paper jam, but there is no jam. Everytime it is to print, the alarm light comes on and says to remove paper jam. No jam is there!


Printers use either small 'flags' to detect paper presence or passage or a photo-optical interrupter. The first can be damaged by a previous jam and the latter can fail.
If you have ever used label stock or another adhesive-treated stock, you may have residue from these and without disassembling the printer, you won't be able to determine the exact cause of the erroneous paper-jam error.
Do a search on your brand and model to see if there is a site or tech with specific knowledge of your printer.

My canon pixma mp450 printer is displaying an error 5010


This is a carriage lift mechanism error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.
