Sometimes while clearing the jam (if there was one) you may leave a bit of paper left behind which obscures a sensor causing it to think there is paper still in the paper path, or sometimes even paper dust can do it. Try a bottle of compressed air and blow the path out very well. Get a bright light (good flashlight) and very throroughly eyeball the paper path for any "foreign" objects. Most of the sensors are either a microswitch, or more commonly a light sensor (LED and photocell) which can easily become obscured or dirty with even a tiny bit of crud! also reload the printer drivers as the printer is not beem able to read that new cartridge has been installed. and dont just directly install the cartridge .install it through a procedure.as mentioned in the printer properties .---ink cartridge replacement option----- as canon printers do very much drama to detect some cartridges and sometime just works fine.

Hello cockie ,

You can diagnose most problems by checking the control panel LED's for ink out, paper-out or copier problem.
If a problem occurs while you're printing, you'll see an error message in the progress window on your computer.

My copier say open side cover and remove paper every time i try to print? Why is it doing this


Because it "thinks " there is a piece of paper jammed.
Open the machine make sure there is no jam, take out the paper cassette and check or change the paper for fresh paper...put the cassette back in and try to make a copy again. As a last resort try making a copy with a piece of paper thro the "by-pass" tray and see what happens.

PAPER JAM


try this
  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.

False jam indicator


I had almost the same problem but the problem that I had was that after running 5 or more copies it would show a jam with no paper anywhere. And the only way to clear the jam was shutting the machine off and turing it back on.
What I found out was that the gate (flag) on the fuser unit was heating up and the gate (flag) was sticking a bit. (Plastic that close to the fuser isn't the best design)
Anyway, the only way to resolve this problem was replacing the fuser that had a new gate (flag) already installed.
You can replace the flag by itself also.
The way to see if your machine has the same problem, is if you get a jam and you open the right side door, push the black gate and see if it moves a little bit. If it was stuck then your machine is doing the same as mine was.
Good luck.
Hope this helps.

PAPER JAMS


Does the fault clear when you open/close? If it does you probably don't have a jam.
Does the machine begin to try to make copies, then stop-if so it has probably failed to feed off the tray, hence the jam message.If this is the case, pull out the paper tray, check for obstructions, clean feed rollers and try again.Are there "skid marks on the paper(indicating the rolls have turned?) If so rolls could be dirty/worn. If no skid marks, can you determine if the rolls did in fact turn? Go from there
