Canon MP470 says "paper is jammed" but there is no jam

Anyone had this problem?
Even with no paper in the printer it says that there is a jam.
I've tried rebooting, turning the printer off and on, it won't let me change any settings.
Help!!!

Normal 0 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 over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Please help with cannon PIXMA MP150 printer problem, when trying to print, It reads that paper is jammed but I've checked several times and no paper is jammed. Printer will not print due to this...


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 then Turn 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!

Canon mp470 keeps telling me there is a paper jam


Hello my friend,first thing we are going to check is if its a jam inside from a foreign object.So
  1. Power the printer off.

  2. Open the paper support and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the auto sheet feeder.
  3. Open the scanning unit (printer cover) and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the printer.
  4. Close the scanning unit (printer cover).
  5. Power the printer on and confirm that the printer operates normally.
But in this procedure be very careful and don't push hard anything!

Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"


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!

Paper jam message


Check to see if you have a door in the back of the printer. Your jam could be there.
