SOURCE: my canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?

give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper Jam


Hi Matt,
Here's how to:-
  • First turn the printer off and on.This is known to automatically clear paper jams by pushing the stuck paper out.
  • Remove all the papers from the feed trays.
  • Remove the cover from the housing of the printer to gain access into the inside of the printer.
  • Check for the jammed paper inside and gently pull it out.
  • Press on the flashing paper jam button to make the clearing easy.
  • If this doesn't clear the jam,unplug the printer from power and try removing the stuck papers firmly.
  • Plug the printer back and try printing now.
Check out these video tutorials for more on the same.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

HP Inkjet Printers - Fixing Paper Path Issues: Paper Jam, Carriage Jam, and...


For a printer to work, the paper has to move through the printer. The route that paper follows through the printer is called the paper path. If the paper doesn't pick up (no pick) or something interferes with the paper path, nothing prints. If the paper is stuck in the path, you have a paper jam. Sometimes jammed paper in the printer can lead to the device that carries your ink cartridges back and forth in your printer to get stuck (carriage jam) as well. Sometimes the carriage can stop moving for other reasons.

The videos in the following playlists were created to help resolve these paper path issues. These videos are not short or entertaining but they are complete. They repeat steps (test print) so even novice users can follow these without having to refer back to instructions earlier in the video. The solutions in these videos are what works to solve paper path issues most of the time. Follow the steps completely. Sometimes people shortcut some of the solutions. Avoid shortcuts for accurate troubleshooting.

The steps for resolving paper path issues are specific to your printer. These playlists have videos for about many different models. We will continue adding to the collection or updating the videos when we find new ways to resolve these issues. The title and description of the videos explain what models the videos apply to.

Some of the videos end with a step that explains that the printer needs to be serviced. If your printer is still in warranty and you get to that step, contact HP for help. If your printer is out of warranty, open a new post in this forum and see if others have a non-conventional solution that will help. Also, Google is your friend offering non-HP out of warranty solutions for servicing/fixing a broken printer.

Not printing after paper jam


Try the HP website. I just downloaded a tool that fixed my problem which was with a 1410 that worked with a Mac and with XP, but not Vista (although it had in the past). Print jobs showed in the queue, there was no error msg, but wouldn't print, either.

My printer gives an error message "paper jam" when there isn't any jam


Paper is nearly always sensed with little, black levers that are pushed out of the way as the paper passes over it. Inkjet printers normally have just one sensor, while laser printers often have three to localize a jam in the paper path. Take out the paper and drum/toner assemblies and look carefully for the levers. See if they wiggle freely. Since they must be delicate enough to be pushed aside by a sheet of paper, it doesn't take much dust to stick one down, giving a false jam reading. A little wiggling and blowing might fix it.

Paper jam


Restart the printer so the paper that is jammed will be feed out from the printer if this doesn't work. Remove the paper that is jammed inside your printer by pulling the paper manually and restart again the printer.

Printer doesn't send paper all the way says paper jam, rollers are moving doesn't print


Possibly the sheet detector sensor, that had become bent out of true alignment, which is telling the printer that there are a number of sheets going through and indicating a jam situation. You need to inspect the guide roller, make sure it is free to move and touches the sheet of paper when it is loaded. If it is bent out of alignment, GENTLY try to bend it back downwards (make sure the paper thickness setting is set to paper not to card when doing so,)

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

Usually this is caused by breaking a paper path sensor when the paper jam is removed. If you are lucky and you did not do any damage then it may also be caused by some bits of paper that are stuck in the sensor that sees the "Paper". If this is the case, simply cleaning it out real good might fix it. Good Luck!
