    There is an obstruction, perhaps a push pin, lodged in the paper path obstructing the paper feed. To get it out, we need to disassemble the printer to expose the obstruction.

    Having a problem with paper feeding. Have taken covers off (unlatching front was tricky). Can see that large rubber roller on right is feeding paper as far as the roller that advances paper under moving print head (just beneath row of small white rollers). This roller is not doing its part to advance the paper. Tried the Clean Paper Feed Roller procedure in the trouble shooting section of manual - no luck. I assume a motherboard problem which means the unit is scrap. Comments?

I had this problem yesterday with my iP3000, but it turned out to be my own fault. I had randomly pushed the control panel buttons, as I tend to do that with printers, while I was trying to quickly cancel a print job.

The symptoms:
roller wouldn't advance, a lot of noise like it was trying to advance, then two yellow light error flashes. I knew it wasn't out of paper.

By randomly pushing buttons, I clicked the Paper Feed Switch which toggled from top sheet feeder to cassette.

I downloaded the e-user's guide from Canon and learned what those control buttons are. I simply clicked the Paper Feed Switch and it toggled back to top sheet feeder. That fixed it for me.

First take side covers off.  Under the lid there are little slots with small arrows next to them.  One on each side. With a small screwdriver press in and down on tab inside. lift the top paper feed lid and under it at the very back look for the arrows, do the same to those 2 slots in the very back. That will let you remove the 2 side covers. Then on the back you will find two more arrows do the same to them and in front where the printed page is delivered you will find 2 more arrows that I don't know how to describe what to do with them.  Be creative and you will figure them out.  Then the top should just lift off and see if you can find the problem.  I don't know exactly your problem so I can't help you any more with that.                                                              When re-assembling be sure the top front and back parts line up correctly before you push the side covers back together.
Good luck.

It wont grab the paper to print

Paper feed problem:

Remove any loose paper in the printer.

Paper jams

85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers .The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Paper goes in squint drags to one side and jams

In my experience the usual reason for this is something (obstruction) in the paper feed. Make sure you have a really good look right down inside the paper path as quite small objects will stop a correct feed. The fact that it is one side makes me thing something is in there. I have serviced printers before with coins, paperclips etc that have found a way in.

Canon Computer Pixma printer ip3000

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.

False paper jam warning on Canon Pixma iP3000 printer

I have been using the Canon MP180 PIXMA for almost three years now without a hitch until I received a paper jam warning which I could not resolve. I Googled "Canon PIXMA paper jam" today and landed on this site. I turned the printer upside-down and shook vigorously. Out popped a small pebble-like bit of concrete which somehow found it's way into my printer. I guess our hardwood floor installation on the floor above had shaken up some old plaster and concrete bits that had lodged in our drop-down ceiling from our 3rd floor bathroom renovation last year and this little ****** came through an opening in our rec-room (where the computer and printer are) drop-down ceiling. A very strange sequence of events, that I would not have suspected, but happy to say that your advice here did the trick and the printer is a tough and trustworthy little printer afterall! Thank you.
