Paper goes in crooked and won't go down into the printer to print. This is a Cannon bjc-2100.


In most cases there is an obstruction in the paper path causing this. Sometimes by lifting the printer upside down and shaking it can remove the obstruction. If this does,nt work get a torch and look down into the paper path and see if you can see anything foreign.
I have also dislodged the objet by using a A4 cardboard ( folio ) and feeding it back in from the inside of the printer to where the paper usually sits.
I have found hundreds of varied objects that have dropped into printers.

Cannon Ip4300 - Orange light flashes on printer.


Hi there,

A possible paper jam has happen on the unit. Did you have an paper jam error before you have this problem?

You must clear any paper jam on the unit, check the unit for any stuck paper or object or check if there was misaligned parts inside.

Let me know for any clarifications.

Thank you for using fixya.

I have a cannon printer bjc 2100. It is printing


After replacing ink cartridges, you generally have to perform an alignment routine. On some printers, they have an automatic alignment function, others require the printing out of one or two sheets of paper and a possible adjustment via the service section of your printer software. If this isn't done, you can have an output similar to that you describe.

Paper jam(Canon BJC 3000)


Try to open the printer cover and look for tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. Also if your printer has a sensor, there could also be a tiny piece of paper blocking it, thus sensing a paper jam.

Printer bjc 2100 problem


Sorry for late answer.
First reset your printer by unplugging the power cable for a couple of minutes.
Open the printer and check for paper stuck inside, check also for lost foreign objects inside the printer (eg small screw) by turning it upside down.
Try also moving gently the printer head (cartridge slot) on the rail.

If after this you still get the error message then you probably damaged some mechanics inside the printer, in this case you will need to have printer serviced.

Paper jammed


I had exactly the same problem, printer virtually new, printed great for a couple of weeks, then today refused to take paper with E3 flashing. No apparent blockage - all looked clean, tried all the utilities, roller cleaning and plate cleaning, but wouldn't take paper!
Solved it by moving the paper size guide all the way to the left, then folding the top 20mm of a sheet of A4 over and loading it so fold is at the top facing you. This acts as a catcher for anything stuck in the printer. Hold the paper slightly crooked with the left side slightly further into the printer and press the copy button (with nothing in the scanner!). It should draw the paper in now (with some persuasion) and think it is printing (it's blank,of course). Check as the top of the sheet goes in that the fold is still tight and doesn't open up as it feeds in. Lo and behold, mine brought out a 5p piece - printer now prints perfectly!

canon i960 -three flashing orange lights (paper jam error) but no paper is jammed. The print cartridge1.gif will not slide to center either-- I have tried to get the printer into service mode, but cannot get there because the orange lights never stop flashing.
