Do you see where the paper is stuck. Try to pull the paper out. Look for release door on the back of the printer. Or you can refer to the user manual on this link for easy assistance.

SOURCE: paper jam

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. Canon MP160
My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others

Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

SOURCE: Paper Jam lite is on ( no paper jam )

give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

SOURCE: My canon MP620 Paper Jam Pull out the Jam Paper Al

There are pieces of paper stock on the sensor, when the paper jam happened then you pull out the paper did you get the whole page of the paper or have missing pieces? open the paper guide, turn off and on the printer and observe the unusual objects in the roller, this error is caused by objects in the sensor.

SOURCE: No paper jam but still says there is a paper jam

Hello there even if you not see any thing jams it worth a try. There this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Paper jam in pixmamp140


To fix a paper jam, you must first locate where in the printer the paper jam is, if your printer has multiple paper trays.


  • When you have located the jam, turn the printer off.
  • If you can see the paper, remove it slowly and carefully with both hands by pulling the edge out in the direction it would naturally be released.
  • Open the printer door to look for any stuck paper.
  • If there are bits of paper still inside the printer, take a piece of heavy-weight paper or cover stock and push it through the printer in the same path. This will push out any bits of paper.
  • Turn the printer back on. Repeat the steps if the printer still alerts you to a paper jam.

look on the control panel if there is a diagram of your printer it will usually light up the area where the paper jam is located.


once you find location of paper jam there is normally a green knob in the area of jam that when you manually rotate it will release paper also open paper drawer check for jam or unplug and plug copier back in somtimes this will force paper out as it resets
