I have some GENERIC suggestions, but as I work on competitor products, I am not familar with the specfics of your machine. So this may or may not help. If something in this post doesn't match up with what you see, disregard it.

Generally speaking paper jam messages are generated because the sensors in the machine either see paper when the should not, or DON'T see paper when they should. "Ghost" jams are usually caused by two things: either the paper is not feeding properly from the paper tray or a sensor is "confused" because it is bad, broken, or covered by a small piece of paper.

If the machine indicates a jam in an area of the paper path close to the paper tray, it is likely that paper is not feeding from the tray at all. If you have an alternate paper source, such as a second tray or a bypass, try feeding from that source. If you are successful, the problem is probably misfeeds from the tray that doesn't work.

In that case, inspect the feed components in the tray (feed rolls or feed tires as the case may be). See if anything looks out of place. Sometimes feed tires can twist or slip and can be put back into the proper position. If the machine has two similar trays, you might be able to compare the two. If you can, remove the tray and see if you can locate the actuator for the paper empty switch. (It will probably be a plastic lever hanging free to ride on the top of the paper stack.) VERY CAREFULLY (you don't want to break or dislodge anything) tape the lever up in place (to fool the machine into thinking there is paper in the tray) and then inspect the feed components while you attempt to make a copy. (Be sure the tray you are watching is selected as your paper source.) If the feed components turn, you probably have to replace the rolls or tires. If not, it may be that a feed clutch or solenoid is not working.

If you cannot get a successful feed from any source, you may have a sensor problem. This might be a bad sensor, a broken actuator or a very small piece of paper stuck on a sensor. This latter problem happens when someone pulls out a jam. The paper tears on the sensor actuator and leaves a small piece in the sensor. Look around the area where the jam is indicated and see if you can find the sensor actuator. It will be a small plastic "finger" or lever (it may only be a few millimeters) typically with a small spring on it. BE CAREFUL not to dislodge or break it. See if there might be a small piece of paper (it, too, may be just a few millimeters) on it or anywherer else in the paper path. If you see something, carefully remove it with tweezers or a similar tool. Again, be very careful not to break or dislodge the actuator. If an actuator is dislodged, you may be able to pop it back in place, but if the small spring has fallen off, it might get tricky. The end result is that the actuator should move freely and spring back into place.

The truth is, unless you see something obviously out of place, or you are exceptionally mechanically inclined, it is probably best to get a service tech in. Again, these are generic tips, but I hope they give you some help. Good luck!

Incorrect paper size while copy in progress for Canon iR2016 series.

Regarding pick-up error "change paper size"or "incorrect paper size" while copy/print:

These may do the trick:

Point of problem:
Paper Pick-Up Assembly
Prevention of incorrect Paper Size Error or Pickup Assmbly Delay Jam (0104) upon Cassette Pick-up

Behaviour of copier:
When making a pick-up setting as from the Cassette and starting Copy, "incorrect paper size" error or pick-up delay
jam (0104) may occur.

Possible reason:
When considerable amount of Paper Lint is attached onto the Vertical Path Roller , the feeding power is
undermined and the paper feeding is delayed, resulting in "incorrect paper size" error or "pickup assembly delay"

Servicing work:
When the foregoing symptom occurs, be sure to replace the 27T/50T Gear [old type] with the 33T/50T Gear [new
type] and the 29T Gear with the new type simultaneously.

Affected machines are:

iR2016J 120V KQW00838 and later iR2020 230V KRS02060 and later
iR2016J EUR 230V KQX19105 and later iR2020i 120V SRB03779 and later

Check and make sure the paper setting is on what it thinks it is. In other words, make sure the the paper in the tray is letter and the display says letter, instead of letter-r (letter-r runs the long way from side to side in the tray, and letter runs the long way from front to back in the tray) or any other size. I am not familiar with the set up of the paper trays on that machine, but if you have to program the paper size yourself, make sure it is what it is.

OK it seems to be a problem with pick up clutch and vertical feed rollers ( When you open the left door and hinge in level of cass you will see axis with the tree little rollers- clean it with alcohol or water).Pick up clutch is better to replace it FK2-1068 (europe code).
