Canon mx310 indicates paper jam but no paper


The printer has several switches in it to detect paper jams. When paper feeds in it trips the first one indicating that paper is present. Another switch further along the feed path indicates that the paper is feeding okay.
Your problem can be a jammed switch (loose scrap of paper), a broken switch, a switch disconnected from the controller board or a possible bad controller board.
One thing you didn't mention was does it respond the same with paper loaded? It might be that the first switch is looking for some and not finding it, so it is programmed to assume a jam.

Epson RX500, Paper Jam - printing couldn't start


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button, applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

Canon MX310 paper jam


"Gclanton" had it right.
I had the same problem today. I ended up taking a piece of paper and from the back side started lightly forcing the paper in the back slot. I had the top cover open where you replace the ink cartridges. Towards the back you can see the paper start coming into the printer next to some rollers. On mine there was a small black switch about an inch from the right in the middle of the plastic piece above the rollers. Once I started pushing this paper in I could see this switch was stuck in the down position. After several minutes of pushing the paper in and out the switch moved up and out of the paper path. I then pulled out the paper and hit the ok button and it came on line. This may work better with a piece of card stock.
That switch is the issue.  I ended up finding an object lodged against the switch.  Needed a flashlight, plastic giftcard and a tweezers to get it out.  Works great now.

In the US, neither the MX300 nor the MX310 have a memory card slot (I'm not sure about other areas). In order to get the memory card reader, you would have to get the MX700 or MX850 (fax capable), or the MP470 or higher (number).
