Cannon imageclass mf3240 laser printer paper jam

I have a cannon imageclass mf3240 laser printer, it had paper jams and the red light blinking, then I followed the instruction on the internet several times, the red light continued blinking. Last night, I did one more time carefully, the problem seems fixed, that is, the red light stoped blinking. BUT it gets jams even more, every time, I wanted to print something, it got paper jamed. However, its copying function works fun. Any idea to fix this problem is appreciated. Thank you.

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!

Blicking light canon d480


try this
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
see alternative if the problem is still not solved.

alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Canon ImageClass MF3240 paper jam fix


The Canon ImageClass MF3240 continues to show "paper jam" error even if someone followed all the possible fix to remove the jam. After clearing the paper in all access doors (both front and back), the printer still gives the paper jam error. Also, if you have tried restarting the printer several times to no avail and the red light keeps blinking, here is the fix to what is most probably been causing the paper jam problem of Canon ImageClass MF3240.

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!

HI, I HAVE CANON LBP 2900 I I TURNED OFF THE POWER WHILE IT WAS PRINTING , THE PAPER STUCK INSIDE, I TRIED TO REMOVE IT BUT I COULDNT THANK U


Hi,i recently had a paper jam problem with the Canon ImageClass MF3240. I followed all the possible fix to remove the jam, but after clearing the paper in all access doors, the printer still gives the paper jam error. Restarted the printer several times to no avail and the red light keeps blinking. Well here is something not suggested in the manual.

1. Turn off your printer.
2. Pull off all plugs attached to your printer back.
3. Remove the paper tray to look for the sensor located underneath the printer.
4. Get a flashlight and look closely. The sensor is located in a small hole, just above the small plastic "lever" (looks like a small hockey paddle) on the left side of the gray rubber roller.
5. There is a tiny paper shred stuck inside and this causes the sensor to detect a paper jam.
6. Get a small tweezer to remove that paper.
7. Return all cables and start your printer and that's it!

Hope this helps you as it saved me a big headache.

Also, How Come My Printer Won't Take the Paper?

Printer problems are a common occurrence. There are various reasons why a printer won't take paper. Printer paper sometimes can become jammed in the machine. It may be wrinkled or too big in size.

Computer Glitch
Printer paper also may be of poor quality or too thick. Paper may not be lined up correctly, and can jam within a printer as it goes through the feed. The power may not be on. Sometimes a printer that is attached to a computer can get knocked off track from too much printing, or a glitch within the computer system.

USB Printer Cable
Something as simple as re-installing the computer with use of a new USB printer cable may fix the problem, or unplugging the printer and then plugging it back in.

Printer Rollers
The rollers may be worn within the printer, and can't grab the paper correctly to guide it through the machine. If this is the case, the rollers will have to be replaced.

Xante 1200, paper jam front. Red light is blinking without a paper jam.


PROBLEM: Paper Jam. XANTE 1200, Tabloid size, B&W, Printer —Red light blinking fast indicating paper jam upfront. If you checked everything, trays, ink cartridge etc., and see no paper jam anywhere, take the top cover off and look inside the (head) for the jammed paper! This printer is problem free. It has given us the best service for many years.
