SOURCE: Pixma i4000 - manual feed picks up 2 to 3 sheets at a time

Get a window cleaning product such as windowlene and a soft but LINT FREE cloth. Remove any paper from the feeder and turn off the machine

Look into to sheet feeder and identify any rubber areas. There should be a rubber pick up wheel and just beyond it a separator pad. There may also be a cork pad in the vicinity.

Use your cloth well dampened and clean all these item as best you can. You can rotate the wheels but ensure you go the correct direction and do not force anything that does not want to move. This will be chore as access is only easy for pixies. Once you have then cleaned and dried off, replace the paper and restore the power.

Try running a print job and see if it makes much difference. If it helps, then you will know that the pick up wheel and separator pad are worn out and could do with replacing.

The paper jam error is related to this issue as the printer is expecting the leading edge of the paper to pass its sensor and then 297mm later the trailing edge should pass the same point. If the machine feeds more than one sheet, the chances are that the paper length will be altered and the machine thinks a bit has been left behind.

Let me know how you get on

SOURCE: "Clear paper jam" error, but there is no jam!

Thanks, tried all the maintenance options including cleaning the rollers. What I have found worked very well was to bin the printer and purchase an HP model!

Canon pixma mx432 how to reset paper jam error msg.


Canon Printers Have a door at the back to remove the jammed paper, If the tiniest piece is left in there you will still get the "paper Jam" Message. Make sure you have looked closely and well inside for no paper left :-)

Hello, I got an error message 5C10. What does that


I just had this error message appear on my computer screen and the 6A00 on my MP830 printer at the same time. I heard this error mean a few things (paper jam, ink carriage stuck), though not sure what it does actually mean. I moved the carriage back-and-forth, blasted compressed air and checked for paper jams. When nothing worked, I looked inside and saw a lot of spilled ink, I'm guessing from not using genuine Canon ink. I blotted the inside with paper towels (use gloves!!),especially the far right, and took out the ink cartridges and blotted the carriage. I replaced everything, powered the printer off and on, and it worked fine. I would suggest first to slide the carriage back-and-forth and look for paper jams before cleaning the ink. Hope this works for you.

Pixma mx318 paper jam


The first thing I would do is check if there is any small fragments of paper in the printer. If you still cannot see anything, try getting some compressed air and blown the printer out. If that still dose not fix it, you might have a faulty paper sensor. If the printer is in warrenty, I would try and do a warrenty claim.

Won't print, and shows Error Code 3


Check to see if anything is stuck inside. Sometimes a small fragment of paper gets stuck inside and triggers the "jam" message.

Canon PIXMA MP160 showing paper jam, but none


hi
just recently had these problems
symptoms:
LED flashing E3 code and alarm light was solid. But dissapeared when opened the coved and came back on when closed the cover.
Also the when the cover was open the inks did not slide out to the left and stayed to the right side.
There was no paper jam, but error said paper jam.

Solution:
1. I took a thick piece of paper, from like a paper folder ones, thick enough to go in the printer and not curl up when pushed..
2. turned off the printer and turned it back on.
3, while printer was turning on,and makings sound as it does normally when turning on, I pushed through the piece of paper and the rotors stoped for a millisecond.
4.the rotors started again and pushed out the paper by it self with out my force.
5. I let the printer get started. and then turned it off and then on.
6. this solved all of my problems.
this was the first problem ever with this printer in 3 years.,preety good printer.

good luck...

'paper jam' error on canon pixma ip4300


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.

Clear Paper Jam error -- but there is no paper jam!


Sometimes while clearing the jam (if there was one) you may leave a bit of paper left behind which obscures a sensor causing it to think there is paper still in the paper path, or sometimes even paper dust can do it. Try a bottle of compressed air and blow the path out very well. Get a bright light (good flashlight) and very throroughly eyeball the paper path for any "foreign" objects...
