Re: load paper and paper jam error msg

I've resolved this problem. It is NOT an easy fix, but it is most likely that your ASF unit is broken. There are a few gears that drive the paper feed mechanism. One of the gears sits on a cheap plastic spindle that will break over time. I have two of the MP730's and both had the same problem of grinding, and misfeeding. You can fix the broken spindle, but it will take you at least a few hours, if you know what you are doing. I created a PDF, but this assumes you know how to get to the ASF, which requires complete dissembly of your MP730. To do this, you need to buy a manual. I'll stick my PDF file into the area where you can add "files"

Re: load paper and paper jam error msg

No solutions really. I have the same problem. I have a service manual. It takes a few hours to take it apart. I took out the ASF (automatic sheet feeder) unit out and cleaned it thoroughly, used compressed air to clean any sensors, and to no avail. It did absolutely nothing. The ASF unit is one of the last things you get it is a big pain. If you want the pages on taking it apart, feel free to email me at niedae AT iwon DOT com. Be sure to use tape to associate the screws with the various service parts. If you figure it out..please post your fix.

Jammed cartridge error froCanon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet

You can open up the device and look inside. You'll prob ably find a jammed peice of paper or a paper clip or some obstacle inside jamming either the rollers or the track for the print head, or both.

The screen reads paper jam error, but there is no visible paper jam and when turned on a grinding noise occurs

Most likely, there is a paper jam in the fuser unit....which is stalling the fuser rollers, thus causing grinding noise (accordian or fan folded jam)

Message reads: the paper is jammed clear the paper and press OK

Even if a small piece of paper stuck inside the printer you ll get this msg.  So what you have to do is if you have a Air blower or vaccum cleaner blow air inside the printer,  If any piece of paper is stuck inside it will come out and you won't get that msg again.  Try this and sure it will work...!

Canon mp830 errors 5110 and 6A00

Error 6A00
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.

Horrible grinding noise

The problem sounds like a broken or stripped gear in the printer. If the unit is under warranty I would contact the authorized repair station for that printer in your local area.

HP 6210 All-In-One

Open up the top and look into the cartridge/paper print area. Look in the corners, Sometimes little pieces of paper can still be stuck there. Once you are convinced that the paper and cartridge path is clear then...

Pull out the paper tray. Look inside the opening. If there is paper there then pull it out.

Take all of the paper out of the paper tray.
Turn it over (paper on top is now on the bottom of the tray)

Try it now.

Canon MP730 "carrige jam" error frequently

This error will generate when the printhead holder cannot move. This is usually due to a paper jam. Clear the jam (or whatever might be obstructing it) and then press "Resume". Do NOT try to move the printhead holder manually. As for cleaning your printer, here is the owners guide from Canon. Download the last link on the page. Hope this helps. Good luck.
