Hello Steve Mollet,

I see you have a problem with your printer. Are you completely sure their is no paper jammed at all in the printer? Have another look and you might have to take some things out. I dont mean take apart the entire printer but, you should be able to slide things out like the ink cartridge. Maybe their are other ways for the paper to come out of the printer like if you were to make a envelope or note card. Have a look in those places also.

Also one more place to check would be where the paper feeds into the printer. Maybe the printer accidentally took more than one sheet of paper at a time.


If you have checked all of those places and still it is jammed try closing it all up and when u close the door it should run a check to make sure you got it. If it does not do that turn it off and then back on.



Hope this helped.

Paper jam open printer cover but no paper jammed


Might have a issue with the rollers that take the paper out of the paper tray (dirty) so they cant grab the paper and the printer expects a paper at a certain point in the process if that paper does not show then it will cause a jam or a miss-feed

To access possible paper jams areas, please click the link http://bit.ly/jtehCY and then go to page 69.

The manual shows the path the paper travels through the printer and the options. The path varies depending on the paper source and paper exit selection (output bin). The jam areas are also shown on the pages.

Canon i9950 inkjet printer, keeps showing paper jam even though nothing there. If I turn it off and on, it prints anything from 1 to 4 pages before error message paper jam again. Just going round in...


Maybe it's just one small paper.
If it's on guarantee, take it to store, and describe the problem like this:

"Cant print. Don't know whats going on!"

So they don't charge you ;)

If it's out of guarantee, try to open all parts until you see the small paper.

Or it could be the sensor (piece of plastic) that was jammed, or get jammed when paper pass. Take a good look on that too.

Printer is saying theres a paper jam but i cant see anything was working fine then it made a funny noise and stopped


Hello sir; Paper jam ,it doesn't real mean paper jamming inside, it could be something else, such as paper clip, or staples etc. check very carefully you will find out something stuck over there.

My canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?


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.
