Question about Canon Pixma MX452

1 Answer

Just cleared a paper jam from my Canon MX452....now it sounds like a gear or gears have been stripped as it tries to feed the paper through. The jam cleared relatively easy so I don't think I exerted enough force to strip a gear.

It could be that some small dust particles came in. I hade the same problem, not the jam but somehow dust came in and it sounded like a boing is taking of. After i cleaned it with the vacuumcleaner (very carefully ofcorse) it worked again as if new.

SOURCE: "Clear paper jam" error, but there is no jam!

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 had the same problem and found a small coin in the back feeder. Remove the back coverplate and tip the machine onto its back and give it a good shake. You might be surprised at what falls out.

SOURCE: Printer says clear paper jam then press reset

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.

SOURCE: Paper wont feed into printer no paper jam



In the comments section Blumm suggests pushing a piece of cardboard (like the back of a legal pad) through the feeder as far as you can. Turn the printer off and then on again with it in there. Pull the cardboard out and check for any foreign objects that have been pushed through.
It worked for many people including myself - I got a piece of plastic and it works wonderfully again!

Canon MX360 shows code 6000. Have switched of printer and computer and the error is still there. What do i need to do?


sounds like the gearing is out of sync. When you remove debris did you force any of the geared rods? some times if a printer has been jammed by debris i.e. your paper clip, the gearing gets out of sync as gears jump teeth. In the past I've rectified this problem by rotating gearing manually. Its a hit and miss method. try it " WITH NO POWER " to the printer. Put a sheet of paper in tray and rotate gearing by hand and watch closely all movement, pick up rollers, paper feed, head movement path etc. you'll get a feel for it .
once you get paper feeding manually try it with power.
good luck.

This is the most common problem...people put TOO MUCH paper in shredders... the VF880 has plastic gears inside...having done this a number of times you may have broken the gears or stripped the "teeth" off the gears...open it up to see what damage has been done; once you know what is broken you can contact Royal for pricing and parts at 1-800-524-0799.

When paper is fed into the auto sheet feed the left side of the paper feeds, but the right side is not feeding at all....resulting in a paper jam. You can hear the printer printing but the paper doesn't go...


helpful to know what kind of machine you have :\. In general one of the paper pickup roller pads is probably rotated 180 degrees out and not touching the paper, many rollers are triangular/square and have to be oriented correctly. Other causes are the plastic gears which if stripped means a junk printer unless its an expensive one. Stripped gears because someone pulled a jammed page out too violently is the usual cause. Check also for embedded staples/paperclips in the mechanism.

My canon i9900 says thatthere is a paper jam but i have opened it up, looked everywhere and there was nothing in it. i uplugged it, took out the battery and re-set. what else can it do?


Just a suggestion- you might have to disassemble it to the point where you can see the individual gears that run the paper roller. Sometimes when a paper jam occurs, the motor and gears are still trying to feed the paper, and a gear tooth will break or jam. In this case, the "brain" of the machine still thinks the paper is jammed, since it isn't feeding, and displays the paper jam message. If it's a broken tooth on a gear, you will have to find a replacement gear for it. I had this problem once, and found another discarded printer a friend had, and got the gear out of it. You might be able to get a replacement gear from an Authorized Canon Repair Facility- if you google that, you will have some places to try. Good luck, this is a common problem with the plastic gears they use.

After paper jam was cleared my printer wont feed


There is a small plastic gear that turns the roller, and when a paper jam occurs, oftentimes the gear strips it's teeth, and then the roller won't turn and feed the paper. I had this happen with an HP printer, and took it apart to see what the problem was. Upon finding the stripped gear, I tried to contact HP to get a replacement part and was told that they don't sell parts to anyone except HP authorized dealers, so I found a used printer and cannibalized the part, replacing it myself. Unfortunately, the broken gear problem happens a lot. About the only thing you can do is maybe load less paper, or load just the sheets you need for your print job, but even this doesn't guarantee that a jam won't occur. If you use labels a lot, they can leave glue residue on the rollers, causing a jam. You just have to keep them clean and hope for the best. In my opinion, the clean roller maintenance doesn't always work, and just a small amount of adhesive on the roller(s) can mess you up. They use a lot of plastic parts in printers these days, so they're very susceptible to breaking. Unfortunate, but that's the way it is. I guess that's their way of ensuring the printers won't last an awful long time, making people buy replacement printers sooner than they should have to. Don't think any one printer is necessarily better than the other, these days, so just try not to overload the paper and hope for the best. Sorry I don't have better news, and good luck.

Not feeding paper very noisy whin it tries shoes to be jammed


You could have a paper jam that's jamming the gears that turn to feed the paper. Make sure there's no paper inside jamming up the roller bar. The other possibility is that you have a stripped gear, that is chattering when it tried to drive the paper feed roller.

Make sure you get an estimate if you get it repaired, since the cost of repair can often justify just going ahead and buying a new one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
