Question about Canon imageCLASS MF3240 All-In-One Laser Printer
I recently had a paper jam in my Canon MF3240 all-in-one printer. I followed the instructions to remove the jam, but after clearing the paper and closing the printer, the device does not recognize that the paper jam is removed. The red light keeps blinking.
I've checked repeatedly, and there is no paper jam. Yet, with the system still thinking the jam is there, I cannot do anything with the printer. I tried shutting the printer off, but that does nothing to solve the problem.
What can I do to solve this?
Unplugging the printer for a period of time may help,

Probably the lightweight paper sensor is struck in its "paper sensed" position. Unplug the printer and turn it upside down. Give a few smashes on the bottom and/or the side panels. The sensor will (hopefully) fall back to its place.

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.

I have had multiple paper jams in the past and resolved the issue every-time. This time was tougher, and I almost thru the machine away. Although, as I was disconnecting the unit, I noticed on the back side of printer was a cover. I pulled it off and there was bunched up small piece of paper. I took out and put back together and the printer is working again.
