Canon pixma mp280 paper feeding jam

Paper is jamming when the rollers pull the paper to print. I cannot visibly see anything that could be causing the jam, and I have performed maintenance by cleaning the rollers, etc. I don't know what else to do without taking it apart, and I really don't want to do that!!

SOURCE: paper jam light constantly on.

The suggestion with the heavy stock paper worked. I used a vanilla folder but this was not heavy enough so I simply folded it in half. I had the problem where it would feed 1 sheet of paper in the auto sheet feeder upon starting the printer up. This is unusual in itself. The single sheet of paper would go through normally. But with the vanilla folder, as it was going through, I heard a loud sound like a contraption somewhere was being reset or dislodged or relodged or relocated from some stuck position. After the sound, the green light came on no problem and it all worked. Try something not so heavy like a vanilla folder that has been trimmed down. Then fold it. You might have to hold it up against the black roller wheel to get it to engage the roller wheel when you turn the printer on. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Trouble with paper feed

Frequent jams are because either scanner picks up more than one paper or does not pickup at all. If scanner picks up more than one paper, then paper is sticky. If the paper is thin, it can pick up two at a time. Fan the papers so that they are not sticky.

Paper at the point of entry into the scanner must be crisp. If folded or 'dog-eared' trim it. Rotate the paper if any other side is crisp, roate the image later.

Clean all the rollers thoroughly, the pickup roller, retard roller and other rollers in the scanner. One can rotate the inner rollers and clean totally, not just waht is seeable area. If the rubber is worn out, it must be replaced. TRy a single page to check if the rubber is okay. Jarring noise is because the motor is 'stopped' and cant rotate because paper is stuck. This can affect motor/inner parts, but is designed for normal use.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Canon DR-3080cii paperjam

The 3 paper sensors are located along the center of the paper path. They are: Registration (lever type) on the bottom between separation & registration. Look for lever damage or torn paper. Scan Start (reflective) on the top between registration & front reading roller. Clean the sensor window with qtip & alcohol. Delivery (lever) at the eject roller. Same as reg, but harder to see due to location.The feed roller exchange kit is 6915A001. The rollers in this machine are not considered user replaceable.

Canon pixma mp495 rear tray rollers only pulls paper in on one side then it jams


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or sticky rollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces of paper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these pieces of paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper to not feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


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.

Machine thinks there's a paper jam


ok what you have done is when you have pulled the paper jam out you have either still have a small piece of paper over the sensor or you have broken the sensor itself it sounds like the later, most people tend to pull out the paper backwards against the feed rollers and sensors just below the feed rollers and it causes the sensor to fall out or break i have seen this so many times,
