Paper jams occur in two ways, a physical jam, this is where there is a mechanical jam of some sort. the second is a timing jam, the paper has not reached a given point in a specified period of time.
I suspect you have the second problem, what you need to check is this.
Is the paper loaded correctly? Did you fan the paper to break the production bonds? Is it good quality paper.
on the top sheet of paper in the paper tray, mark it with an X , a happy face or some thing to show it is your page. Then press copy, did it try to pick up the paper. If it did not try at all, there may be a problem with the paper feed drive system.
If it tried but failed, the feed tires are likely dirty or worn our, you can try cleaning them with some isopropal alcohol (available at drug stores) and a soft cloth if yo can reach them. remove the paper tray, or st least all of the paper, you should be able to see a set of rollers in the middle of the feed section. clean these and retry the machine

Hope this is of some help.

Always paper jam error on my cannon 3530


Check for a paper fragment at either end inside the printer chamber or underneath the paper feed roller cover plates. Anything that holds a paper feed sensor arm open will give you paper feed errors, and they can be remarkably small.

My cannon MP160 pixma keeps telling me there is a paper jam when there is no paper in it, it will copy and give me color tests printed out but if i try to print a doc. It says E# paper jam


Hello thanks for using fixya

Actually you are facing E3 error, E3 error is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

My Printer is Laser, Cannon LBP3000, while printing paper jammed into the roller, computer gave instruction that "open the top cover of the printer and remove the paper by pulling". But after...


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

MY PRINTER SAYS PAPER JAM BUT HERE IS NO PAPER IN IT ???


Look for any traces of tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. That might be causing the paper jam error. If you could open the back cover, check from there also as those paper shreds might also blocking the sensor.

Error 002 with Canon image class MF 8180 C


I usually open the back cover, top cover, cartridge cover and pull out the paper tray. Sometimes this clears the alarm, if this does not clear the alarm, I unplug the printer for a couple minutes. Between opening and closing the covers and unpluging the printer, the alarm goes away. Ray
