Canon PC 941 copier. Paper jam indicated with no paper.

Canon PC 941 copier. Following cleaning the feed mechanism, the paper jam indicator comes on and the machine doesn't run. There is no paper in the machine, so I know it isn't jammed. What is the problem?

    The problem turned out to be a sensor that had been dislodged in the cleaning process. When found and replaced in its spot, the copier works fine. The advice pointed the direction to solution. Thanks.

Canon ir2016 jams papers under registration clutch. the clutch runs on power up but does not run when copig or printing help


This seems to be a common problem for the Canon ir 20 xx series machines. The problem is having machine indicating paper jams on the left hand side of the machine. When you open the left cover you do sometimes find paper stuck on entering the fuser unit. The main problem, and loads of these machines with these problems have been fixed, are the half moon pickup rollers! Clean the pickup rollers or even better, replace them and you will get the machine working 100%!! To confirm this try copying from the machine using the manual feed tray. You will never get a paper jam. This fault is due to incorrect pickup resulting in timing problem and thus getting paper jams! Good luck!

IF PAPER HAS NOT JAMED BUT MACHINE ARE SHOW PAPER JAMED


Try cleaning the rubber paper feed rollers. If it fails to pick up the paper in a pre determined time it will show paper jam. The pick up tires must pick up paper when turning, if not the paper will not feed into the machine and it will show paper jam with no jammed paper.

Paper jam from paper drawer


Has the copier ever been cleaned, professsionally? If not, you may need a feed roller.

Unplug the copier. Prepare a dry cloth dampened with WD 40. Take out the paper tray.

Pull down the door on the right side of the copier. You will see a single, fat, gray or black rubber roller. Take the WD 40 cloth and wipe down the roller, turning it in the direction that the paper comes out the machine. Close door and install the paper tray. Let the copier stand for ten minutes.

Plug copier in and try a copy. If it feeds the paper, you need a new feed roller. If it doesn't then remove the paper tray and shoul there be skid marks on the paper then for sure you need a feed roller. If the paper continues to feed hooray, but when it stops feeding you definitely need a feed roller.

This requires a service call unless you have some experience with copiers. Likely this puppy needs a thorough cleaning.

Paper will not feed from drawer


Pull the paper tray out of the machine. On the right side underneath you should see a rubber paper feed roller. Clean this off with a slightly damp cloth until it is "squeaky clean". Also, look about to be sure there is nothing blocking the paper path. Sometimes paper gets torn off and left in the machine when clearing a jam.

Paper will not feed through machine


Brass screw is probably the chrome packing screw which normally sets in a hole near the front of the copier when you open the "**** shell" Paper pick up could need feed wheel. clean with fantastic or soap and water and see if it helps. Also on this model check your exposure lamp is it coming on, if not it may on flicker, On all these PC when the lamp goes bad the paper jams usually at turnaround. Good luck.
