Paper keeps jamming on my canon mp 480 . I have already turn upside down and looked for small bits of paper nothing came out when i try and print it makes a small buckle in paper just off center to left...


Small bits of paper lodged near the gears at the back of the rollers are difficult to see and remove. This causes the paper to jamb and crumble.
You most likely need to dismantle the printer to find the bits of paper.
When you pull paper from a fresh jamb out of the printer, do it slowly and avoid tearing the paper, if you do make sure you have all the pieces of paper.

Not taking paper in plus i already replaced the ink cartridge n still wont work


Note if the rubber wheels that take paper turn.
May be a sheet of paper obstructs the wheels.
You can sand the surface of the rubber wheels, with a sheet of sand-paper.

I have a canon mp240 and i keeps saying that i have a papper jam but i have taking out the paper but it still wont print correctly and now it wont let the paper go thru to the ink cartridges


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My messy roommate spilled Dr. Pepper on our Canon MP240 printer. Now paper keeps getting jammed/ripped when I print. How can I take it apart to clean it and remove the paper?

My canon MP240 is wonderful, until today when it will not feed. Says there is a paper stuck, but there isn't. Do I need to clean, and how do I do that? Have even tried dust-busting the ******, and there is...


Hello You might have some problem in feeding the papers. Check paper feeding section, if there is something wrong, and, this is suggested that call someone skilled.

Every time i try to print the my paper goes in sideways and doesnt feed into the printer properly what wrong????


There is almost certainly something in the print path that is obstructing the paper. Check to see if there isnt some old paper or something dropped in the paper input.

My canon mp240 still wont take the paper, I have tired to do what was recommended but it still gets jammed! NEED HELP. Thanks


Try fresh new dry paper. Open it up and look inside with a flashlight for anything that may be jamming the works. A can of compressed air can help. Have someone hold it up with the place where the paper goes in down and tap the unit and blow out where the paper goes in.
