Where is the machine saying the jam is located? Does the paper even start to feed? Does the paper feed to the next feed area? If the machine sounds like it is feeding ( trying to feed) and the paper is still in the tray --- clean the feed roller/ tire with rubber restorer or a high alcohol base cleaner. IF the paper is fed part way out of the tray to the long ( most of the time) black reg. roller and now farther --- clean the reg. roller. There is always the chance that you have a bad feed motor or reg. motor. Also look to see if an actuator / switch has been pulled / knocked out of position. They is is small cradles and can be snapped back into place.

Cannon IR 1600 Rec paper jam message.no any paper find. how can i solve this problem?


Yes, often it is not a paper jam but a fail of paper to feed out of the tray which the machine thinks it has a jam. Clean feed rollers with Windex, or alcohol. Check the paper tray to see if paper size panels are set to the correct position. portrait, landscape, width length ect.. Good luck.

Hi, I solved the problem. I had another employee look it over and there was still a teeny teeny piece of paper that was still jamming it up. So once that was removed the copier started working okay again. Thank you for taking the time to try and help me. Sould I encounter any other copier problems I'll get back to you.

How to erase a error message on Cannon mp 160 which says " paper jams" & it does not exit. and printer does not work.


It should have a display showing you where the paper is jammed. Open that lid even though the paper is not really jammed and the error message should go away.

If it fails, turn off and back on the multifunctional.

Canon MX300 Paper Jam


I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.

Error e 3 with mp150 but no papper jam


this is a paper jam,

As the machine is a old model you might as well strip the machine down and inspect it for any lose paper, it could be the reg sensor has bent causing it to always say the same error.

by the time you have tried all this i would maybe look to buy a new machine with a years warrenty from Canon

Hope this helps
