Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
My printer will not print as it keeps showing a 'paper jammed in outlet slot' message. i have checked this area and these is no paper jammed. when i turn the printer off and then back on it feeds a piece of paper through without any problems but then brings the paper jam message up again. can any one help
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.

Same problem with my Canon Pixma MP 480 - printer is jammed error message with nothing visible jammed in the printer. Turning on/off would not help.
I used the solution by gordonthe1, but instead of using a plastic sheet I pushed a very thick & stiff paper sheet up the rear. I had a very difficult time getting the sheet past the 2nd set of rollers - the rollers would lift for a split second each time I turned the printer ON, but even then it took a violent shove on the third try to finally get the paper through. Then, I (very roughly) yanked the paper up through the top of the printer before letting the printer eject it again. I also finished a roller cleaning, which I could not do before because of the incredibly frustrating non-existent paper jam. Now the Printer seems to be working perfectly & I'm thrilled that I won't be tossing my printer.

A shot term tip is to feed a piece of paper the wrong way through the machine, turning the rollers. when you shut the lid the paper comes out. but you have to do this every time, not funny.
