My PIXMA 6000 has a paper tray on the bottom or else you can load the paper from above.
When the paper tray contains paper and is loaded it moves a switch that alerts the printer that there is paper available to the printer.
When loading paper from the feeder on the top of the printer there is a bar that kicks out from behind the paper that pushes the paper in to a roller on the other side. The roller grabs the paper and feeds it in to the printer. As the paper enters the printer a sensor detects it's presence.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
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.
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.
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.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
see alternative if the problem is still not solved.
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.
well, you should first know where the paper should go. (open the cover on the back) If the paper is in there and it is still not working, then it could be defective. Is it a new printer? If it is an old printer, try cleaning the rollers that grab the paper with a q-tip wit some alcohol on it.
