Hi Wendy,

This is known issue with Canon printers. Try the steps below.

Instructions
    • 1

      Remove all of the paper from the paper tray and slide the paper guides all the way to the side. Examine the paper for any crumpled or torn pieces, then reload the tray. Make sure the guides fit snugly against the sides of the paper. If the guides are too loose, the paper can feed into the iP1600 skewed and cause a paper jam. If the guides are too tight it can cause the printer to grab more than one piece of paper.

      Open the front of the printer and wait for the print cartridges to move to the center. Do not move the cartridges by hand--this could damage the printer and void your warranty.


      • 3

        Pull the cartridges slightly toward you and lift them free of the printer. Set the cartridges aside.

      • 4

        Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any ink residue and paper dust. The Pixma iP1600 has a tendency to accumulate a lot of paper dust, especially during periods of heavy use. Cleaning the printer periodically is the best way to avoid problems.

      • 5

        Dip a cotton swab in warm water and carefully clean the bottom of each print cartridge. The print cartridges in the iP1600 printer also tend to accumulate paper dust. In addition the print nozzles can become clogged with ink residue, resulting in poor print quality and shortening the life of the cartridges. Continue wiping the cartridges until all ink residue and paper dust have been removed.

    Canon iP 1600 printer won't print. Says that


    Hi
    If it keep saying paper jam Then it maybe just that you may not see any paper in it but it only takes a very small bit of paper that stopping it or I would take a closer look inside, you may have had a paper jam before and it has left a small nit inside. All Best: Pineworks

    I have a flashing orange light, flashing three times then the power light(green)blinks once, before the three flashes of orange again. I know this indicates a paper jam, but there is no jam. How do I...


    You can't reset except by removing paper scraps. Try using an index card and gently push it backwards thru the rollers where the paper comes out to be printed. There are gears on the left side you can rotate to push the card to remove scraps.
