Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

The printer started jamming and shreading up paper. Now the paper is being pulled through at an angle if at all. When there is no paper going through the printer still seems to be going through the printing motions. How do you get into the printer to take out anything stuck?

The following a step by step instructions for the printer issue:
First Set Prevent paper abrasion (Windows)
By using the Prevent paper abrasion function, the space between the print head and paper is increased, preventing print head contact with the paper.
When printing, if there is any foreign material (such as a piece of metal or a pencil) in the printer, the printer maybe damaged. If there is any foreign material, remove it at once.
1. Power the printer off.
2. Open the paper support and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the auto sheet feeder. If there is any foreign material, remove it by hand or with tweezers.
3. Open the front cover and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the printer. If there is any foreign material, remove it by hand or with tweezers.
4. Power the printer on and confirm that the printer operate normally.
Removing paper jam:
If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, open the Top Cover and remove it. If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the printer off and turn it back on. The paper will be ejected automatically.
Paper Loaded in the Cassette Jams inside the Printer
(1) Press the POWER button of the printer to turn off the power. Then, open the Rear Cover.
(2) Fold a piece of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in four, push it in until it hits the jammed paper, then pull out the paper folded in four.
(3) Close the Rear Cover, then press the POWER button of the printer to turn on the power.
Wait until the jammed paper is automatically ejected.

Paper jam, open cover and remove jammed paper.... how am i suppose to do that??


No video, no model name...I can assume it is a printer. There are MANY kinds of printers you know! But, here goes...THere are front and back swing doors on printers. If you find one carefully open it anfd find the path the paper follows to be printed upon. Open each door one by one until you see the actual paper jammed between the rollers. Carefully remove the paper being careful not to tear it leaving shreaded sections to get caught again!

Screen stating carriage jam "Open door


Some times the paper is not visible. On my HP I have a rear panel that I can open and look between the rollers, and usually there is a small piece that will block the sensor that needs to be cleared out.

Clear the jammed paper as follows.

If the jammed paper is removed completely by using the information in the following steps, you can install the paper tray first, and then close the front cover and the printer will resume printing automatically.

Pull out the drum unit assembly. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer. If you cannot remove the drum unit assembly easily at this time, do not use extra force.

Open the face-up output tray. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit. If the paper jam can be cleared, go to Step 7.

Open the jam clear cover. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.

Close the jam clear cover. Close the face-up output tray. If the paper jam still cannot be cleared, for HL-5130 and HL-5140 users go to Step 10, and for all other users go to the next step.

Pull the jammed paper out of the printer or the Duplex tray. Put the Duplex tray back into the printer.

Printer pulls paper in from one corner


this problem occurs only when one side of the paper spooler is jammed and stuck. the spooler pulls the paper causing the paper to rotate inside the printer and getting stuck.

take professional help in clearing the jam and freeing up the spooler.

When going to print paper is pulled in angled and jams thanks


i do not know the model of the printer that you have, but the most common problem is that you have something stuck in the area where the paper is not being pulled in. You might have a small piece of paper jammed in there or some foreign object. It is also possible your sensor is jammed and the paper is hitting it.

Lastly, if you have 2 pickup rollers (depends on the printer that you have), one could be worn out.

thanks adi

Lexmark x 3350 all-in-one


I picked up a used Lexmark 3500 with the same problem. Had requested help fixing.

Tried to feed more paper through - still pulling hard on the right side. Tried to feed several pieces of paper - one at a time, getting them jammed then pulling them back out. Finally one got jammed way down in there - yanked it back out. Open the top(as to load ink cartridges) Saw a tiny piece of paper sticking out between the plastic rollers, got a small crochet hook (tweezers would have worked), grabbed a hold of it and pulled it out enough to get a good hold of it, then pulled it out. There had been a shread of paper jammed in the roller area. 3" long by from 1/4" to 1 1/2" wide.

My problem was the chunk of paper stuck in the roller mechanism where you could not see it or get to it, until it was partially forced out.

Hope this helps someone else!
