    Your solution was very helpful. I look at sensor #2 and found the problem. It was not paper that cause the error, however a roach decide to start up her roach hotel at that location. Seems your good in what you do. Here is another problem on another printer.
    The printer is a HP DC 610. The problem is I have an error message that keeps re-occuring. Scanner failure. I have clean the scanner assembly and mirrors to see if this helps to clear the problem, however after 5 mintues or so. The error returns. I don't have enough money to take to a service tech, but I enjoy working on printers. My mechincal skills out skill my knowledge on this different types of printers, however I still enjoy working on them. Please e-mail @ with your solution.
    Thank you once again for a great solution,
    Jesse J. Aguilar

The blinking light with the squiggle symbol is the display for a paper jam. Not sure a service manual will help in this situation other than to be a guide as to where the paper sensors are located. There are usually 3 or 4 paper sensors located in Canon PC copiers. The first sensor will be located between the paper pick up assy and the vertical rollers*(*which are located behind the door on the right hand side used for clearing jams). The second sensor is located under the toner cartridge just before the registration rollers. The third sensor (if present)is located at the entrance of the fuser assy (some models of Canon copiers have omitted this sensor)The last sensor is located at the exit of the fuser assy. I would suggest that you remove the cassette, verify that a piece of paper has not been partially fed or ripped in the pick up assy. With cassette out of machine, open right hand door & verify that there is no jam and check that the flag or arm of the sensor moves freely. Remove the cartridge from machine and again verify there is no jam and the registration sensor arm moves freely. If there is a sensor in front of the fuser assy, verify that it also moves freely. Finally, check for a jam and sensor movement at the exit/fuser. After checking all sensors, unplug the machine and plug back in. (Do this without the cassette & cartridge installed but with all the covers closed) This should give you an install cartridge & cassette message. Install cartridge first. This should give you the install cassette message. Install cassette. If you still get a jam signal when plugging the machine in without the cartridge or cassette, the most likely cause is a blown sensor.(rare, but I have seen it.)If this happens you would then need the service manual to disassemble & repair. I'll keep an eye out for your reply! Good Luck!!!

Canon ir4570 always jam at fuser

To properly solve the jam, you would have to start taking apart the machine, take the fuser out and inspect the paper path, a service manual would be helpful as the machines paper path in most cases is very complex, there are alot of moving parts in the path.

there is possibly a small piece of paper in the path, stuck in a gear or something similar, or a part is out of place or there is something in the path that doesn't belong there.

Paper will not feed through machine

Brass screw is probably the chrome packing screw which normally sets in a hole near the front of the copier when you open the "**** shell" Paper pick up could need feed wheel. clean with fantastic or soap and water and see if it helps. Also on this model check your exposure lamp is it coming on, if not it may on flicker, On all these PC when the lamp goes bad the paper jams usually at turnaround. Good luck.
