I have the same issue. My printer thinks there is a paper jam but there is nothing in the printing chain at all. Tried reboots and resets, still no good. Any idea's would be appreciated. Is it s sensor problem? Cheers

Re: Paper kam that wont clear

Canon Pixma IP5000 kept giving the blinking yellow light 3 times. Could not find anything. I tried the manila folder forcing a manila folder in on power up through the top feeder as suggested for another Canon Pixma. The folder kind of jammed and pushed it back out of the feeder. And out came a small piece of postit. Couldn't see it so it was somewhere inaccessible and unviewable. The bigger paper was enough to loosen and expel it with the manila folder. I'm guessing the people who put the higher mil (thicker) paper through, clear what ever is causing the problem even if they don't see what is ejected or forced out. Don't know if this will work for you but it thats what happened and the printer works fine now.

Paper jammed but no paper is jammed.

Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.

Paper jam

I used the cardboard backing from an 8x11 tablet; I pushed it into the paperholder; it pushed out a small bit of paper which could not be seen; behold, the paper jam was no longer. I paid a computer repairman $15 to do the same thing with a plastic sheet.

Paper jam cleared - but still won't work

turn off the printer for a while then back on again, if it still refuse to print, try printing a test page.
