OK, often when removing a paper jam this can happen:
1) - when pulling the jammed paper out you can leave behind a small piece or loosen up another small piece from a previous jam. This piece can then become the 'new' jam by clogging the jam sensor or switch. Use a small flashlight to look done the previous jammed area to see if this is the case.
2) - when pulling the jammed paper out you can 'mis align' or damage the jam sensor (or switch) so that it always registers a jam. this fix may require a technician or repair shop to fix.
hello,maybe the paper feed is jammed try to see if it has something that stops the paper to go in and if you are asking for the service manual for the ip4300 printer you can download it from the below link: http://goo.gl/ZYxxU Good luck
Orange light flashes if there is any issue with the printer. Please check all the hardware is functioning properly. Check if there is any paper jam. If printer cartridge is installed properly. Printing head is ok.
It is possible that the printer is having an error due to either a sensor fault ( optocoupler) in the paper detect section or a possible software issue.
So disconnecct printter, and uninstall the soft ware , the reinstall and then connecct printer to be detected and installed.
If the fault stays then the sensor must be checked.
The 6A00 is a Canon code for paper path jam. In the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 .
The purge unit is stuck and not able to move freely .Move the purge unit back and forth for around 10 times and then restart printer ,it should work fine .
If you still get the error code then purge unit needs replacement.
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. 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.

These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.
