Question about Canon PIXMA MP810 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I suspect you have one of the following as a cause...
1. The thin foam strip the runs the width of the print run, has lifted slightly out of position at the "jam" point or near to it.
2. There's some foreign object such as a sliver of paper, or similar that has fallen into the path of the paper on that side...
If true, the paper is being redirected slightly up and into the path of the steel bar across the inside front which then causes the crumpling and jam... This would also explain the carriage jamming as the crumpled paper will end up in the carriage path causing further problems.
I'm not 100% sure where the "lid" switch is on the MP810 (the bit that tells the printer when the lid is closed) but I believe it's on the inside right side about two thirds back. If you get something like a stack of coins taped together to hold this down you can then leave the lid open and see what's going on.
I'd recommend running a few blank sheets of paper through to see if the path is uninterrupted (just print blank sheets from word or similar) without the printhead carriage passing over it... My guess is you'll see the paper rise slightly on the "jam" side and that should give you a hard target area to look at with a bright light.
If the sheet passes through completely without jamming I'd repeat but also try removing all your cartridges and examine the printhead for any tape or similar that may have fallen in.. Also check the cartridges and inside of the carriage unit..
This may not solve the issue but it'll certainly help remove a few possible issues.

Make sure the drums and the wheels are clean when papers rolls over it. Unclean surfaces causes friction and hence Jam.
If it happens only when you load new Ink, check for any ink leakages.
I hope you are using recommended paper quality in your printer.

Make sure the ink cover is in the right position and that it is not too low. Also check the motion of the ink cartridges and make sure they are not jerking the metal panel, which could be causing the snag.
