This is happening due to paper jam on the gear or roller of the paper feed mechanism. Check for any small bits of paper or sheet stuck. To check lift up the top plastic lid of the Canon printer. Check to see if a jammed sheet of paper is visible inside the printer. Remove the cartridges and check for any small paper bits stuck under the print head. Pull the paper out gently through the bottom end of the printer(if any). Close the top plastic lid. Power On the printer and check.
If it doesn't work then power off the printer, wait 10 seconds and power it back on. try once again to print. If it doesn't work then Open the Canon printer software. Click "Options" and then select the "Clean Print Heads" button.
A common issue is moisture. As the relative humidity changes, the paper will absorb some of the excess moisture. (Ink jets don't get as hot as other printers; but they do have temperature changes during operation.)
Unfortunately, the only solution that I have ever found is to use paper from a just opened package. Try to keep only enough paper in the printer for a short duration of printing (1-2 weeks). Keep the rest of an open package of paper somewhere else where the temperature and humidity stays fairly constant.
Hi, Remove the jammed
paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for
tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers
and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and
replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough
for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper
sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for
If you are unable to remove the jammed paper from inside the Automatic Sheet Feeder (ASF) then it is necessary to remove the printer top cover. The ASF is then easily removed by removing three screws, and any jammed paper removed from it.
If you require assistance in how to remove the top cover, please post a new comment to this effect.
