How to dismantle Canon MF3110 to clean inside?

My Canon MF3110 (multifunction laser printer) had a paper jam that I only discoverd and cleared a few days later. Now, the print quality is really bad. There are now large areas of black smudges all over the paper. I suspect there are old toner powder sticking to the roller/drum due to the paper jam. However, I haven't figured out how to dismantle the machine to get inside to clean. Can anyone offer some tips? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    pulled paper out of the back because it was jammed. I remember the manual said not to do this but I had no other option. The print quality sucks since then. Any suggestions on how to get this fixed?

    We had a paper jam the other day and the only way that we could get the paper out was to gently pull it out. There was no other way of getting the paper out. Since then the printing has gone wrong and all we have been getting is black ink all over the page.

The service manual can be found by googling for "Canon MF3110 service manual" - however since it's not located on the Canon page I am not sure if the download is legal.

My printer not working in windows 7 please tell me

I have luckily managed to figure out how to get my Canon MF3110 printing with Windows 7 64 bit even though there is no driver for Windows 7 64bit for the Canon MF3110 Multifunction Printer. The solution is to download the Windows 7 64 bit printer drivers for the Canon MF5750 and then install the drivers as your LPT1: Printer. Note this same work around should work in theory with the Canon MF3111 model as well.

You know you have the right file because if you go to Canon's website link here:

Select Windows 7 (x64) in the drop down

And download these drivers:

There is a message called "Paper Jam". What can i do for this?

Look in your printer manual. It will tell you how to pull the paper out. If you can't see it in the front you can probably open it in the back somehow.

Canon mp830, when turn on error code 6A00. When lift lid, no lights on ink cartridges, ink cartridges do not slide into middle for access. When turn machine on, hear funny noises as heads try to clean...

Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

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.

Canon mf3110 does not pick up paper


The unit may have a paper jam or stuck object inside, if you have experience a paper jam error before, check the printer for any object or paper stuck inside, clean roller.

Some error like this can be a problem on the feeder sensor and by this time you may need to replace and repair the unit.

Hope this initial info helps

202 pam jam

usually it means that a sensor in your fuser is bad. If you have a P.M. Kit replaced the fuser and clean the printer.

but before you do, make sure that you have cleared all jams, including in the fuser.

Its probably time for a Preventive Maintanence

Paper jam

try removing the back door where you are supposed to clear a paper jam from, and then replace it. If that does not work try leaving the printer unplugug for a few minutes. If this does not work, try printing a document with the printer, and see if it clears the error then.
