    cannot not get at anything but cutters inside and underneath. The top entry looks clear. How to I get to where manual might be? Nothing obvious sticking out the top feeder or bottom shredder


    Do I have to open the housing? I don't see any easy screws to open.

  • leemeltzer Apr 14, 2009

    Yes, I've done this and there is no paper sticking out or anything else obvious

  • leemeltzer Apr 15, 2009

    So, I am I to understand that basically the machine needs to be replaced or it is fixable? Thanks.

  • leemeltzer Apr 15, 2009

    Is there a machine/machines you would recommend?

  • leemeltzer Apr 16, 2009

    Thanks for your help.

I have seen what u have going on, it is caused by the shredder drums drive worm gear being broken, this happens allot on machines that are used allot, in other words a high duty cycle, also if u jammed the machine then that breaks the gear drive that turns the shredders.

    the entire head of the machine will need to be replaced, they don't service the part, U might as well buy a new shredder, get one with a capacity and higher duty cycle to prevent future failures like this one.

Hi there,

If paper is not feeding properly into the printer, the problem may stem from hardware failure. Check the feed assembly to see if all the parts are in working order. You may be able to manually advance the paper in order to see which component may be failing. If necessary, clean the paper pickup rollers to make sure the paper path is free of sticky dirt and debris.

hope this initial info helps.

let me know.

    Paper can jam inside the printer for a number of reasons. Open
    the cover to the printer and look inside to see if there are any pieces
    of paper or debris that may be blocking the print path. Be sure to
    unplug the printer before touching anything internal to avoid electric
    shock. If there is something blocking the print path, remove it, close
    the printer, and try printing again. You can also check inside the
    printer to see if any components have come loose.

    • Look at the paper feeder assembly to see if the paper is slipping.

    • If
      so, the problem might be the type of paper you are using.

    • The paper
      feeder requires some friction between the sheets of paper so the top
      sheet can be pulled into the printing chamber.

    • Because printers use
      many different kinds of printing paper, you should check the printer
      manual to determine the specific paper type for your printer.

My lexmark x1270 keeps jamming not grabbing on the right side.


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.
6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.
7. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My printer says I have paper jam, please remove. but i have only been able to remove partial pieces. How do I get at the rest left in a spot I can not reach


Here's a link from which you should be able to download the online manual with a troubleshooting section that includes specific instructions on clearing a paper jam. See also this page, as I have no great confidence in the links I get from canon, their website is so backwards. If you choose the service and support option, then ask "how do I clear a paper jam" you'll see the instructions they offer.
Issue: Paper is jammed inside the printer
Solution: Remove foreign object from paper feed area (MP130)

Remove foreign object from paper feed path If error message
  • [PLEASE CLEAR PAPER JAM AND PRESS [OK]] or
  • [CHECK PRINTER]
is displayed, follow this procedure to remove paper or obstructions from the machine. Clearing Jams In The Paper Output Tray:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the Paper Output Tray.

    mp130_extjam.gif

  2. Press .

  3. If you cannot see any jammed paper in the Paper Output Tray, remove it from the machine's interior.
    1. Press to power off the machine.
    2. Lift up the Scan Unit until it locks into place.
    3. Open the Paper Output Tray.
    4. Look in the print area for an obstruction (such as a paper clip, staple, tape, etc.) and then remove it.

  4. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.
Clearing Jams From The Auto Sheet Feeder:
  1. Gently pull out any jammed paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder.

    mp130_asfjam.gif

  2. Press .

  3. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.

Sorry I can't offer you much more, but just try to get all the bits out. Sometimes a pointy tool on a vacuum will help. Otherwise, maybe you can wrap and tape a post-it note around a popsicle stick or something to reach the paper and try to coax it out, or maybe a bit of folded tape on the end of a ruler or something like that. Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Paper jammed


Hi there,
Paper Jams

Cause 1 : Paper jams in the paper output slot/Auto Sheet Feeder.
Action : Remove the paper according to the following procedure.
a) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the paper output slot, whichever is easier.
* If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, open the Scanning Unit and remove it. Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine at this time. After removing the paper, close the Scanning Unit, turn OFF and turn it back ON.
* If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine OFF and turn it back ON. The paper will be ejected automatically.
b) Reload the paper into the machine and press [OK].
* If you have turned OFF the machine in step a), you will need to retry printing, because this operation cancels any print jobs in progress.
If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the machine, or if the paper jam error continues after removing the paper, contact a Canon service representative.

Cause 2 : Landscape Credit Card-size Paper Jams inside the Machine.
Action : You cannot load Credit Card-size paper in the landscape orientation.
If <PAPER JAMMED> or <E3> is displayed on the LCD/LED, remove the paper following the procedure below:
a) Load Credit Card-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder one sheet at a time.
Do not load it in the landscape orientation.
b) Press [ON/OFF] on the machine to turn OFF the power.
c) Press [ON/OFF] again on the machine to turn ON the power.
The paper is fed and the jammed paper is ejected accordingly.
If you cannot remove the jammed paper or the error still persists, contact a Canon service representative.

Hope this helps
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

Printer says clear paper jam. There is no paper jam.


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Paper jam


Remove the paper following the procedure below.
(1) Load a single sheet of the same paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder in portrait orientation.
Do not load it in the landscape orientation.
(2) Turn off the machine.
(3) Turn on the machine.
The paper is fed and then pushes out the jammed paper as it ejects.
If you cannot remove the jammed paper or the paper jam error continues after removing the paper, contact your Canon Service representative.

It says the paper is jammed, but there's no paper in it!!


This is an awesome printer. Did you know it can duplex (print on both sides of the paper) automatically? The jam "could" be in the duplexer on the back or, the duplexer unit isn't locked into place.

Unplug the printer and open the rear door, check for visible paper jam, remove, close door.

There's also access to the feed mechanism from the bottom of the printer.

Unplug printer.

(1) Remove the Cassette. (paper tray on bottom of printer)

If the paper is loaded in the Auto Sheet Feeder (on back of printer), remove the paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder and close the Paper Support.
(2) Stand the machine with the left side down.
(3) Slowly pull the jammed paper out while pulling the green cover toward you.


Caution
Set the machine back to its original position immediately after removing the jammed paper.
(4) If any paper is sticking out of the Cassette, reload the paper in the Cassette.
Reload paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder, if necessary.
(5) Insert the Cassette into the machine.
(6) Press the OK button on the machine.


Some of these instructions were copied from the online/downloadable printer manual from Canon's web site: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/
