Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer
Showing message that paper is jammed but cannot find any jam. Clear sheet of paper came through before the message appeared
Even a tiny scrap of paper can cause the problem you describe. You will have to disconnect (not just turn off) power and use a bright light to examine as much of the paper path as you can see. It may be necessary to use compressed air to blow out areas that are not accessible. After reassembly and reconnection of power, you may find operation is back to normal.

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...

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!

I cannot receive faxes or print anything.
The message says that "there is no paper in the machine". There us plenty of paper in the machine and I push "OK" and get the same message

Could there possibly be:
A) Paper jammed internally: Power Off. Open the cover and remove the paper or scrap carefully. Do not touch the internal printer parts. Close the cover. Power on.
B) Foreign objects in printer: Power Off. Open the paper support and confirm that there is no foreign material in the auto sheet feeder. (If so, remove it by hand or with tweezers). Open the front cover and confirm that there is no foreign material in the unit. Avoid touching the inner workings of the machine.
C) Reset the printer:
1. Turn the printer off with the Power button
2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer
3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. Attach data cable.
4. Turn the printer back on.
If all of these suggestions fail, your iP1600 may require repair service. Please note: With the suggested retail price of $29.99 USD, repair does not seem cost effective - you could just go out and purchase a new printer.
