There is paper stuck inside the fuser on a Canon PC1060 copier. I have tried removing some of the jammed paper but there still some more that keeps making the machine jam. How do I remove the scanner unit to get to the fuser? Thanks in advance!

First you must remove the cover for the duplexing drawer below the fuser drawer. It will allow you to fully extend the fuser drawer to remove the fuser unit. You have to remove the 3 front covers of the fuser drawer, remove the three black screws that secure the fuser motor, then the yellow cover to access then two screws that secure the fuser unit to the drawer. But you must unplug the connectors you see in front of the fuser unit. I believe there are 5 connectors that need to be unplugged. Don't forget to unplug the connector below the fuser unit. This is the sensor that tell the fuser shield its home position. You fully extend the drawer by looking at each side of the drawer and push in the leaf springs you see and pull the drawer out further. Remove the two screws you see on the top of the fuser and gently remove the fuser unit. Take your time and all should go well.
I'm not sure if you mean the adf or the top half of the copier??? The adf comes off, it's tricky, there are pins that hold it in. As for the top part of the copier, why would you? I did it only once, will never do it again. I think you problem is in the fuser unit. If so, it comes out of the left side by the exit tray. Before I go any further, have you seen any small pieces of thin blackish grey plastic. If so, you need a new fuser unit or fusing film. I would not go any further if that is the problem. Without it to put right back in, you will forget how to put it back in... Good Luck
Remove or open the right side cover of the copier , you will see the drum and the fuser unit. Press the two green levers on the fuser unit one on right and the left one down and look for a paper. If its stuck , open the front cover and turn the green knob. Remove the paper tray and check the inside of the copier and then arrange papers well.
Your jam is in the fuser section of the machine. Unfortunately this area this area is not for users to access. You will need to remove covers to get to the fuser unit. You may be able to access the paper by removing the whole drum unit (make sure you remove the toner cartridge first). Then look into the machine to the left. You may see the tail end of the document for removal. Otherwise, you will eed a service manual to dis-assemble it yourself.
I will try to guide you, most of the models are the same.
1-turn off machine and unplug
2-open the side door, you already know where the paper is it's most likely rolled up on a hot long roller, this is the fuser unit
3-with a phillips scredriver(star) remove 2-4 screws that hold the unit, it will have a plug most likely on the right hand side unplug
4-unit should slide out (unless there is a cover holding it
5- you can now see and work on the unit turning the gear by hand to remove the paper.
6-reverse the steps
hi i am a certified Canon tech on this copier. the problem you have is due to the scanner cable that runs from the top of the scanner to the main board in the back of the machine. what happens is when you take the scanner unit off to get to the fuser screw holes the cable should be removed from the main board under the rear panel with alot of screws. some people when they put the scanner unit back on they dont watch the position of the cable and when the unit slides back to open the cartridge door the cable is pulled part way out of the board connecter. the first thing i would do is to remove the back cover and chech the connector for the scanner cable to see if the cable is in all the way. also sometimes i have found that some one has pinched the ribbon cable damaging it underneath the scanner and replacing it with a new cable took care of the problem. the cable cost around $20. hope this helps.
