How do I add it to my printer and devices? And the orange light blinks 3 times but there is no paper jam or nothing stuck. How do I fix it?

SOURCE: Canon i9900 blinking three orange / jam

I had the same problem with my i9900 - 3 orange flashes on the the error light (Paper Jam) and yet I could slip a sheet of paper in and it would feed through OK. My problem is that the SPRING on the PAPER SENSOR had come off, leaving the sensor in the where it would be if there was a paper jam.

You have to REMOVE the main cover of the printer to find and fix this problem You have to find all of the release points (look for triangles on the plastic covers) where you insert a small tool/screwdriver to (1) press 1 release each side & remove the 2 silver end panels, (2) press 1 release to remove the control switch & carefully disconnect the two connectors inside. Start with the triangle rlease on the lower front left of the main cover, then 1 on the left side, 3 on the back, 1 on the right side, and finally 1 on the lower front right side and gently lift the whole cover off.

You can then look inside with a flashlight from the top rear just behind the left side paper feed roller and see a small switch which pivots when paper is fed through the printer. Feed a sheet of paper and see if the spring is returning it to the normal (no jam) position. I used a long pair of tweezers to reach inside and slip the spring back into its normal position which is behind the small slot on the far right side of the switch. No pictures, but it should be intuitive where the spring should go. Once reinstalled, the switch will move back to the normal position and your paper jam should be fixed.

This SAME MECHANISM is also used in a number of other Canon i & ip series printers so this general approach to fixing this in other models could be the same - (1) remove the cover, (2) locate the switch, and (3) put the spring back into the correct positiion.

These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.

Good luck!!!

Hello there,

Hope I could still share with you this fix because this is where you need to look at when you think you have done everything to remove the paper jam.

1. Turn off the printer and pull out all plugs and power cord that is attached to your printer.

2. Remove the paper tray at the bottom and let the printer lie at its back so that you can see underneath.

3. Get a flashlight and look closely for the sensor located underneath the printer. The sensor is located in a small square hole, just above the small black plastic "lever" (looks like a small hockey paddle) on the left side of the gray rubber roller. Move the lever so that you can freely look closer on the hole.

4. Notice because there could be a tiny paper shred stuck inside and this causes the sensor to detect a paper jam.

5. Get a small tweezer to remove that paper out.

6. Next, let the printer stand normally and return the tray back.

7. Re-plug all cables and start your printer. That's it!

Dear Sir,

i am giving u step to solve your problem,


Step 1 Turn your printer off and on to see if it can take out some or all of the jam automatically. If not, turn off the printer and go to the next step.
Step 2 Inspect where the printed paper stops. If the stuck paper is visible and on its way out of the device, try to manually remove it. If you can not pull the rest out easily, then refer to the next steps.
Step 3 Remove any paper trays. Check if any wrinkled or damaged paper is still stuck in the printer. If so, remove any other appliances you can (toner or ink cartridge if necessary) and look for the paper shreds. Make sure nothing has been left in this device.
Step 4 Tidy your blank papers, turn the printer back on and try it again. If the paper jam massage still appears, repeat the above steps. If no paper stuck in your device but the error still persists, well then it’s likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issue: maybe the rollers or some other part need to be adjusted or replaced. Check the printer manual and the manufacturer’s website for directions, or contact your support line for additional assistance.
Things you should take care when manually removing paper
l You should be careful, especially for a laser printer – laser printers can get hot.
l Do not remove your jammed paper from where the blank paper enters the printer, or your device might be damaged easily.
l If you find a piece of jammed paper, pull it out with both your hands carefully so as to keep the paper from tearing. If several sheets of paper jammed together, try to loose the jam by pulling out the middle one first.
l If the paper does tear, you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer to free the shreds. Don’t force anything.

Orange light blinking, cleared paper jam, changed printer cartridge, won't print subsequent documents.


Double check all doors/ rollers for small pieces of paper stuck in the rollers. Sometimes just opening the door in question and closing will reset the paper jam sensors. Paper jams can be smaller than your pinky finger nail. So double check,

Comment if it still isn't working.

Hi, I'm Cecily, and my printer isnt working at all. It says "E" beside the third button down, and an orange light won't stop blinking. I dont know what to do!


It has an Error "E" that's why its blinking orange, Turn it off, check if there's any paper jam inside it, make sure that it has ink and not used up after checking for paper jams and Ink level, remove all paper, make sure nothing is stuck inside it, reseat paper back, make sure ink catridges are reated as they should, close it, then plug it in and turn it on and verify if you still have "E" or blinking.
