Here's a few things to try :

1. Blow it out with compressed air blower .especially the rollers and the paper feed area make sure there are no bits of paper or dust in the paper feed area and in the front access area that could be causing the jam.

2. Verify that the cartridge carriage moves to the service area when the front door is opened (as if to change tanks)

3. Verify that the timing belt, drive belt, gearing and rollers all look normal.



4. With the computer off, unplug the printer's power cord and USB cord for about 3-5 min

after plug it back if the problem still persists then move to the next step
6. Completely uninstall the printer's driver and software. Then reinstall the printer's drivers only.

Retry after each step.hope this helps

    examine all rollers as the printer starts ,there must be some stuck on the rollers check all the rollers properly and try moving them manually by hand and observe,if they all moving then use a sand paper to put in between the rollers move them to give it a rough edge incase the rollers are worn out

Says I have a paper jam when there is none


Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Printer keeps saying paper jam..there is no paper jam


You can also try using a rubber eraser as the rollers are going. Just take a pencil and lightly rub along the length of the rollers as they are feeding. This should remove the film that clogs the rollers surface.

Printer always prin at the to of the page and then it will parer jam but no paper is in it to jam up I have a canon bjc-4200 and I like the print that it dose


hi there,
This problem mostly caused by another material (such as broken paper, etc) present in paper path prevent paper to reach paper cam sensor. Check inside your printer and clear paper path from another material. You can also try to clean paper feed roller. If problem still persist, replace paper feed roller
