Question about Canon PIXMA MP170 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Canon pixma mp170 all in one, i had a paper jam about two weeks ago since then i cannot use it as the paper jam light is on all the time and the paper wont feed into the machine, any ideas, thank you. i cleaned the roller and cannot see any paper stuck anywhere. canon knows of this problem but wont repair it even as its under warranty.
This solution worked perfectly for me!!!!!!!

The paper in my printer was constantly jamming up and i forced an index card through the rollers and out popped one of my little hair barrettes. Um, oops haha.

The suggestion with the heavy stock paper worked. I used a vanilla folder but this was not heavy enough so I simply folded it in half. I had the problem where it would feed 1 sheet of paper in the auto sheet feeder upon starting the printer up. This is unusual in itself. The single sheet of paper would go through normally. But with the vanilla folder, as it was going through, I heard a loud sound like a contraption somewhere was being reset or dislodged or relodged or relocated from some stuck position. After the sound, the green light came on no problem and it all worked. Try something not so heavy like a vanilla folder that has been trimmed down. Then fold it. You might have to hold it up against the black roller wheel to get it to engage the roller wheel when you turn the printer on. Hope this helps.

I got this suggestion off of http://en.allexperts.com/q/Printer-mechanical-problems-1024/paper-jam.htm?zIr=5 This was the suggestion: what you can try is, take a piece of ~70lb cardstock, and with the POWER OFF, gently push this through the paper-path of the printer - this will help to possibly reset that switch, and will help push anything else out that's in the way that may be blocking it. After trying everything else suggested on other sites, i tried this and it worked. I used a piece of 90 lb. drawing paper, and it took a fair amount of force to push it through. After pushing for a bit, i opened the cover and used a tweezers to pull the piece of paper the rest of the way through (and it didn't rip because it's 90lbs.). Then i turned the printer back on and the error message was gone.

I also tried sticking my fingers in and rolling the rolers round. This seemed to free things up a bit.

After hours of trying to clean the machine, repeatedly pressing the OK and other buttons, banging the machine and deleting the driver, I finely got the light to go off. What worked was turning the machine off then turning it back on with paper in the hopper. It fed one sheet of paper and the light went off. Hope this helps someone.
