Unload all paper. Examine the feed track for any obstruction- paper fragment - cookie crumbs. Take a vacuum nozzle to it and give it a good suck out. Now feed a heavy weight paper/thin card through. Did it do the trick?

SOURCE: Canon MF4150 Duplex Printing Paper Jams

I have just had the same problem on one of these Canon MF4150 machines.
The manufactures warranty on our machine had expired just one week before this happened so I had to fix this myself.
The problem we had (which is very likely to be the same cause as yours) is when we removed some torn jammed paper, it had somehow pulled off a spring from inside the machine. The spring was linked to the paper jam sensor.
It does involve a LOT of work to fix it, and unless you are very 'techy' it may be quite a difficult task to do this for the 'average' person.
I had to completely disassemble the machine: Take off the front first (lift up the cover and there is 2 screws at the front and 2 clips on the bottom of the machine) Then remove the 2sides and finally the top (screws should be easy to see, to get the sides off, un-clip along the front edges and gently move them outwards and slide them backwards to release the clips on the back) being careful with the wires going to the scanner part). Then look for the fuser unit which is near the top at the back, there is a black rounded cover over the fuser. To remove the cover, look for 2 small clips one at each side and unclip the cover and gently lift upwards.  Under the cover on the left side you will see a small plastic rod which goes from the left side to a small tab in the middle, if you look about half way along that rod you should see a tiny spring, make sure this is clipped on properly and that you are able to rotate the rod and it should spring back to the proper position when you let go.
Once this is done, put it all back together again and it should work fine.

I'm sure a lot of other people probably have this same problem too so I hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: My canon ip2600 printer has a paper jam error, but there isn't.

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.




Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: My Canon MX340 printer says

I had the same problem...after trying everything suggested on the forum. I had enough and decided to disassemble the printer. I removed the CAD and disconnected the wires and it solved the problem. No more paper jam error code on the screen. This probably includes that the CAD won't work anymore but I never used this anyway. So now I can print and scan like I used to.

Canon mx452 paper jam


In the back of the printer there is a lever, but there might be some tape holding it to the printer. Take the tape off, pull the lever and flip the printer on its side. You will then find your paper.

Paper Jam


Not easy, thats the fuser, normally it is damaged and beyond it causing paper to jam there, no easy fix, cant pull it out without major screwdriver challange...I think thats this one... some fuser s(hot bit that paper exits), are pop out by green release tabs but if I have my models right these are the cheaper version and they fix them to the machine thus ensuring you upgrade..modern world..

Paper will not feed inti printer


The sensor that detects paper (most cases just a small lever that is pushed up by paper in the tray) isn't engaging. It could be that the paper is not fully inserted, or sometimes in a paper jam, people pull the jammed page out backwards, bending or dislodging the lever. Very common in back-fed printers and shredders.

Sometimes just a visual inspection with a bright light source can show the problem. Be careful not to turn the printer on its side or upside down for any length of time. Inkjet printers usually use a sponge for excess ink discharged during the cleaning process and that can run out and seriously gum up the works, electronics, carpet, and whatever else you really don't want it to.

Paper jam problem in pixma mp145. E3 error.


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.
