Sounds to me like one of two things has happened.
More than likely the actuator tab on the cover snapped off,
Look for an opening around the edge of the cover , there is a cover interlock switch in there. Note its position and look at the cover to verify there is a tab on the cover to actuate the switch, Or you may have a loose connector on the interlock switch, or a bad switch, although I have never seen one of those switches go bad.

I have a message on screen sayng " ADF Jam" there is no paper jamming the system. I cannot make this message go away, and so i cnnot use any other function of the printer. How might I clear...


Hi travlynn2,

  1. The ADF
    unit is the grey paper tray located on the top of the scanner unit.
    Check the following points if it does not feed paper, or you receive an "ADF jam" error message:


  2. Check the position of the ADF document guide:


    1. Lift up the ADF unit. Locate the document guide on the underside, as shown here:


    2. The document guide should be tucked in behind the grey plastic casing, but a paper jam can push it out of position. Figure 8 below shows the correct (1) and incorrect (2) positions:


    3. If your document guide looks like example (2)
      on the right, lift it out on the right-hand side. Tuck it in behind the
      grey section, so that it matches the example on the left (1).




    1. Close the scanner unit.


    2. If the printer is displaying "ADF Jam, press start to continue", press the B/W Start button to clear the error:


    3. Test the printer by scanning or faxing via the ADF unit.


  3. Check the ADF edge guides:




    1. The adjustable paper tray edge guides must be set to the correct paper size for the paper you are loading. Otherwise, the paper may skew, misfeed and/or jam.



    2. Slide the edge guides to enclose the loaded
      paper (in the direction of the yellow arrows below), without causing it
      to bunch or crease. The paper should be aligned with the relevant paper size marker:

      Figure 9. The ADF edge guides.


  4. Check the ADF unit feed rollers:


    1. Open the cover of the ADF by pulling up the grey lip, as shown below:


    2. Check thoroughly for fragments of paper and foreign objects. Take care not to tear any jammed paper when you remove it.


    3. Use the green gear (circled in yellow below) to turn the paper feed rollers and feed through jammed paper:



    4. Paper dust or foreign material on the rollers may cause paper to misfeed. Clean these parts with a damp, well-wrung cloth:


      1. The upper paper pickup rollers (circled in red, above top left). You can turn these by hand.



      2. The lower paper pickup rollers. These will rotate as you turn the green gear (circled in yellow above). See the inset for a close-up of the lower rollers.


    5. When complete, close all the covers.


    6. If the printer is displaying "ADF Jam, press start to continue", press the B/W Start button to clear the error:


    7. Test the printer by scanning or faxing via the ADF unit.



  5. Check that the ADF unit sensors are not obstructed.




    1. Open the cover of the ADF unit.



    2. Look at Figure 12 below. Check the position of the black plastic parts (the actuators) circled in red.



    3. If the black plastic actuators do not stick out from the ADF cover, they may have been pushed out of position by a paper misfeed and be obscuring the ADF sensors. Tap the back of the ADF unit firmly to release the actuators.


    4. When complete, close all the covers. Check and test the printer as explained in Step 6.d.vi.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I clear a paper Jam


Try either of the following methods to clear the paper jam. The operator panel displays the Ready message when the jam is cleared.Method A:
  1. Press Paper Rewind until the Paper Empty message appears.
  2. Press Paper Advance to re-load the paper into the printer.
    The printer advances the paper, then cuts and discharges about 24 in. (61 cm) of blank paper. This reduces the possibility of fingerprints or other damage to the prints.
Method B:
  1. Turn off the printer and open the upper cover.
  2. Remove the ribbon from the printer.
    Caution: Prevent damage to the printer. Do not pull abruptly on the paper.
  3. Slowly and carefully pull the jammed paper out of the printer.
  4. Cut off any damaged or printed areas of the paper. Do not damage or mark any of the rollers.
  5. Close the upper cover and turn on the printer.
  6. Press Paper Rewind to rewind the paper into the printer.
    Note: If the Paper Jam message still appears on the operator panel, press Paper Rewind again.
  7. Open the upper cover and reload the ribbon.
  8. Close the cover.
  9. Reload the paper.
Note: If the Paper Jam message still displays on the operator panel, and you are at the end of a paper roll, it is possible that a segment of paper is too short to automatically exit the printer. Remove the front cleaning roller and remove the segment of paper.

11. Using a pair of tweezers, the paper scrap can be easily removed from the exit rollers.

12. Place the machine gently down onto the surface.

- If paper scraps were found and removed from the machine, continue to STEP 13.

- If no paper scraps were found inside the machine, the paper in the tray may be causing the issue. If the paper is slightly curled, the print head will catch the edge of the paper and tear it. To resolve the issue, the paper must be replaced.

- If you do not have replacement paper, follow the rest of this solution, after you have replaced the paper.

- If you replaced the paper, continue to STEP 13.

13. Put the paper tray back into the machine.

'paper jam' error on canon pixma ip4300


Hi guys, I eventually found a solution to the problem for my printer. With the top cover open, I pushed a sheet of 120 micron thickness A4 clear plastic binding cover through the exit tray as far as it would go to rest against the bottom row of rollers. I switched the printer off then back on again and as the rollers lifted momentarily, I pushed the sheet of plastic as far up through the machine as I could before the rollers went down again - it went in a fair distance. The printer then ejected the plastic sheet. I then put the plastic sheet into the paper tray and tried to print a blank document page. The plastic fed through cleanly and my printer has been working since without any error messages. I hope this works for you.

Printer jam


There is an easy fix for Lexmark E232 paper jams at the beginning of the paper path. This fix only works when the problem is that the paper starts to feed, but does not quite make it out of the paper tray.

The problem is the pickup paper rollers. If you remove the paper tray and press down on the paper indicator (the red lever to the left of the paper tray) you can see the twin rollers attached to a spring loaded armature.

Chances are these rollers are worn and are very smooth to the touch. This slick smooth surface does not have enough friction to push the paper up to the next roller.

To fix this, remove both rollers, they slide off easily. Then simply turn both rollers inside out and replace them on the armature. Notice how much "stickier" they feel now? Chances are your paper jam problems are over, until the rollers wear out again.

At that point you will have to replace them.
