    When the printer is first turned on its fine as far as the green light. then once i try and print it starts blinking green then orange and so fourth. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

    mine will feed about 1/4 inch, or 5 mm, and then will stop feeding paper.  the printer head will happily continue printing away spraying printer ink into the foam pad in the bottom of the printer.

    the IP90 does not have a waste tank, so that is not the issue.  I cannot locate any dirt or paper in the feed.

    I've tried the cancel/feed blink 3 times clean process MANY times, I've carefully taken the top half of the cover off the printer, nothing out of the ordinary. No paper or paper fragments.

    Where is this "sensor" located so I can give it an alcohol swab.

    I've also heard that there is an internal "bar" that could be bent. (To be honest, this computer has gone through airports nationwide, I don't doubt that this problem began with improper bag handling)

    Where can i find a manual or directions on taking apart my printer and doing diagnostic tests on it.

    I seriously wouldnt be taking this "printer battle" to such extent, but these are commercial printers. I have 5/13 that have this problem. It's beginning to occur to me how cheap these printers are. I don't want to just throw them away yet.

    Any suggestions?

    Same problem here. Bought the Canon Pixima ip90 on ebay after experiencing same unfixable problem with another one I owned. Final verdict...a previous paper jam resulted in cracking the plastic gear that's driven by the main metal gear. Not worth fixing.

Exactly as blan5640 said here there may be piece of paper or dust on the sensor try ro clean the sensor and reply whether you have pulled the jammed paper towards up/down of the feeder if you pulled it upward then the sensor would have broken

Check the paper feed section of the printer. it may be item stuck in the paper path. causing the paper jam senor to stay on. also it know for these printer to have a waste in full. this will stop all workings of the printer. as these printer only have small waste ink pad in them. Need to know if the printer is flashing just green or if it flashing green led then a orange one.

Please help with cannon PIXMA MP150 printer problem, when trying to print, It reads that paper is jammed but I've checked several times and no paper is jammed. Printer will not print due to this...

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Paper jam means their may be small bit paper jam in side
, actually there are some "micro sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper inside those sensors, thus tripping the sensor and paper jammed keeps coming up.
To solve this first of all 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 Printers service provider.

I hope this solution helps you
Thank you for using FixYa!

Paper will not start feed in on it own

Probably no paper jam, but put a ruler across the top across where the switches are, if it's bowed down some the frame has been bent. Any weight, luggage,etc placed on top can bend the frame and that restricts the paper path and you need a shop repair.

Paper won't feed

your receiving a jam because the printers are based on timing so if that paper doesnt follow its path it will cause an error what you might need to replace the pick up rollers

Printer keeps on jamming paper

Dear all,
I will try to help you. Paper jam error may be caused by some possibilities. So, please notice this indication:
  • If the printer status is READY immediately after Power ON then Paper Jam Error message appears while feeding the paper: Sheet Feeder Unit is faulty or any other material (such as broken paper) present inside paper path blocking paper end to reach paper feed sensor.
  • If Paper Jam Error messages appears immediately after Power ON: Paper feed sensor or logic board is faulty
Corrective action:
  • Remove the material from paper path
  • Replace Sheet Feeder Unit
  • Replace Paper Feed Sensor / Logic Board
Please rate me as Fixya if you find this useful for you. Thanks.
