Re: Canon MP470 says "paper is jammed" but there is no...
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud

Hello and Welcome to FixYa! Paper jam means their may be small bit paper jam in side, actually there are some "micro sensors" that detect a paper
jam. There will be tiny piece of paper inside those
sensors, thus tripping the sensor and paper jammed keeps coming up. To solve this first of all Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder, If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects thenTurn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air. If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon Printers service provider. I hope this solution helps you Thank you for using FixYa!
u have something stuck in paper path that has the paper sensor stuck shine flashlight thru front where the paper would exit and see if you see some obstruction. did good by turning upside down but sometimes its hard to get out
I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!
HEY THERE GUY'S THE EASIEST SOLUTION I CAN TELL YOU TO DO IS CALL CANON COMPLAIN THE'Y WELL MAKE YOU DO A COUPLE OF THINGS THATS SUPPOSED TO CORRECT THE ISSUE: LIKE ROLLER CLEANING A COUPLE OF TIMES, CLEAN THE ROLLER WITH ALCHOL, TURN EVERYTHING OFF AND SHAKE THE MACHINE A LITTLE AND TURN IT BACK ON TO SEE IF THAT WORKS AND FINALLY IF THAT DOESNT WORK THEY TELL YOU TO UNISTALL THE DRIVER AND REINSTALL IT!!
