My Canon MG5500 had a paper jam. I think I've removed all the pieces. I tried to print after restarting it and another jam occurred. I removed that sheet. Now code 6000 shows. What next?

SOURCE: paper jam

I have had this problem, and have became very furiated.

Clear the Jam by removing and paper you see in from the rear access door.
If you are printing something from a PDF website....... make sure to have it still in the printer schedule.... It will still say printer jam..... but have it there regardless if its something you dont want to have to retype into the pdf form........ After that simply restart your computer. It should resume printer as soon as your computer boots up.....

Worked for me..... Hope this helps everyone else whos probably cursing your printer at the moment!!!!

That happens when there is either a timing problem in the feed assembly, when you pull out a jam sometimes the gear timing can get offset, also a bent or broken sensor arm. Should have a shop take a look for you...

I own a canon MP210 printer. Recently a paper got jammed but I was able to get it out. Now, every time I try to print, it will only grab the paper but wont feed while printing and says "Paper Jam".

Some times when paper jams a printer it damages the sensors that continue the printing process. I suggest you revisit the area where the paper jam occurred and check for the tiniest particle still lingering between the rollers. Remove what rollers you can by hand and inspect the surfaces and alignment. Put them back in the order you removed them and try again to print.

Welll its not a canon but ew are in dire need. Our 16 month old OKI b4600 wont print.Error message says clear paper jam. cant find a jam swapped tray, cartridge/drum etc. No luck. Any suggested

Hi There and Welcome to Fixya,

Usually, paper jams can occur at the input location right at the bottom of the printer - always remember that even a tiny piece of paper can cause halt in printing, hence, the error message.

Here's what I'm suggesting for you to do :
  • Start with pulling out the tray from the printer and look for ANY crumpled/pieces/fragments of paper that could be tucked in.
  • At the bottom of the printer is the feed area - do the same thing and remove any pieces of paper.
  • Ensure that it's absolutely "paper fragment free" before returning the tray back at the printer.
  • Next, is to open the top cover and carefully remove the drum.
  • Remove any pieces or fragments of paper that you find.
  • Carefully slide back the drum, ensure that everything snaps into place.
  • Close the top cover.
  • Restart your printer.
I most certainly hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Paper jam???

Follow these steps :
Remove all paper from the trays. This will prevent further jams during the clearing.
Remove the covering to the printer's outer case to expose the jam. Locate the jammed paper to ensure there is not another problem causing the stall.
Pull gently on the jammed paper, taking care not to tear it. In most cases, this will remove the jam.
Press the flashing "Printer Jam" button. This will allow the rotors to turn and facilitate the release of the jam.
Turn off the printer and firmly pull on the jammed paper. Be careful not to tear it.
Remove remaining paper shreds. if a tear occurs, remove any residual paper that may hamper printing.
Refill the paper tray and try printing again. If the jam persists, repeat the process and search for more paper.

Printer says paper jam when there is none

The printer may have an optical paper reader near the print head.

If you can, remove any plastic covers and blow out the head area with compressed air.

The optical reader may be located somewhere else also.

They get covered with paper dust and think its a paper jam.
Blow out all areas of printer.

My canon ip1200 printer has stopped printing. Prior to that, a paper jam occurred and after removing the jammed paper, I tried to print again but it doesn't print anymore I tried turning it off and on...

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.

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.

Paper jamed


Thanks for using FixYa. Perform the steps below in order to solve this incidence:
  1. Disconnect the power cord or power supply adaptor from the rear of the HP All-in-One product.
  2. Remove the paper pack remaining in the input tray.
WARNING - Do not try to remove the jammed paper sheet yet. Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the device can damage the print mechanism. Always clear paper jams through the rear access door.
  1. Open the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  2. Gently pull the jammed paper sheet out of the rollers.
  3. If the paper tore when it was being removed from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the device. If not all the pieces of paper are removed from the device, paper jams are likely to occur again later.
  4. Replace the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  5. Restart the printer to continue the current job.

Paper jammed but no paper is jammed.

Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.
