Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

If the printer has internal problems (it won't turn on), where should I start looking. The last time I printed, a pencil had fallen in the paper feed tray at the back. I have removed this and checked for any other objects, there was a burning smell too, so I changed the fuse. I don't know what else to check.

Try removing the printhead and power up, if it comes on don't put the old printhead back in again, you need to install a new printhead. That burning smell might mean that the main logic PCB is bad now.

Morning, Im working with a Canon All-In-One Inkjet MX300 printer. It is not allowing me to print as it keeps telling me I do not have paper loaded in the printer. I have turned it off, and back on. Even...


Hi....hard time with your Canon... It possible you have a paper jam inside you unit.. at the back you will see a endle in both side take off the tray and look for paper jam., also check where you feed the paper if you don't have anything like paper clip pencil jam it inside the feeder

Printer will not feed. Using plain paper, as I have for a long time. Turned off printer and tried again, nothing. Makes the feeding noise. Ink is full.


Check and see if a pen or pencil has fallen down into the paper tray. That's what happened to me, and my paper wouldn't feed. The pen had rolled way down inside and was hard to see and hard to get it out of there. I actually found it by feeling around and then I felt something that felt oddly like a pen cap! I could barely see it in there, so check it good.

Printer has been working fine. all of a sudden the paper started to load crooked and jammed. now it continues to do this...why?


Usually it's because something has fallen down the back where the paper goes. One person on here turned her printer upside down and shook it and a Bic pen fell out. I got one last week with a wood screw inside. sometimes I find push pins, candy or jewelry. If nothing comes out try looking inside with a light and small mirror.

Will not print because paper always jams


Perhaps there is paper still jammed inside the printer that you cannot see (or little bits from a previous jam)

1) Turn off the power
2) Disconnect the power cord and USB cable
3) Open the rear cover and see if paper is jammed inside the cassette area. Gently remove any paper and make sure no little bits of paper are left inside
4) Open the scanning unit (printer cover) and check that no paper is stuck internally. Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.
5) Reattach the power cord and USB cable
6) Power On and retry your print job

Paper jam in my new Lexmark x2600 inkjet printer


Hi there,

Here's how to clear printer paper jam.

  1. Pull the paper out if it is visible. If not, then open the top of the printer so that the jammed piece of paper is visible.
  2. Grasp the paper and pull gently but firmly. If the paper continues to jam in the printer, inspect the rollers to ensure that they are grabbing the paper and pulling it along the paper path properly.
  3. Check the paper path for any obstructions, and clear if found. Also, inspect the other parts that the paper travels through, to ensure that they are not dirty or gummy. If any dirt or other debris is found, clean the parts and try again.
  4. Close the top of the printer.
  5. Place the printer back online. Try the print job again.
Just let me know for further assistant.

The printer should be on,remove the paper from the printer(if there is any),press and hold the down arrow/cancel button, release the button when the power light blinks 3 times ... The printer will rollers will automatically revolce and clear all the jams.. When the power light is green then repeat the same step 3-4 times.. To confirm the paper jam is cleared then feed 8 1/2 * 11 paper in the printer and again press the down arrow button and release the button once the power light bliks for 3 times and then release the button. If the printer feeds properly it confirms the hardware of the printer is fine.
Software issue: Go to printer and faxes in computer and check the icon. If it says.. 0 paper jam then, delete the icon and chcek in the device manager if there is an entry of usb printing support under Universal Serial Bus controller .. if the entry is there then delete it. Insert the printer cd in the computer and unplug and replug the usb cable from the printer. If the setup screen comes up then exit out of it and the printer drivers will get updated. After that tried to print another tets page from the computer. It will definately print. Thank you.

Lexmark X2350 paperjam/top cover sensor problems


I thought I got all FOD out of my printer, till I turned it up side down.

Pencils apparently find the x2350 very comfortable.

Feeds paper crooked


Lexmark printers are hyper sensitive to dust..It might be causing this problem...Take a cotton swab dip it in alcohol and press it against the roller whilw pressing the paper feed button....
If this doesn't work you should try a longer procedure...Remember you have to look real hard..
It's possible that the paper may be running into a foreign object and not feeding in at all. A foreign object could also cause the paper to stall, or even feed-in crooked. Remove all the paper and use a flashlight to look carefully into the paper feed-in area. Look for a pen, pencil, push pin, paper clip, candy, etc. If you can't see anything, then actually pick your printer up and turn it so the paper opening is facing down and shake it a little, side to side. Your trying to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the paper entrance area. If nothing falls out, then turn it back over and use the flashlight to once again look inside that area. Sometimes you'll see an object that may have moved over into view while you were shaking the printer. Any foreign object might block the paper from actually being able to move forward, so then the printer thinks there is no paper installed. You may have to even remove the Top Cover to be able to get a better view of that paper feed area. Unfortunatly, just removing that cover is not always that easy, especially on the newer printers. You may need a Service Manual for reference, disassembly and troubleshooting. I have not checked, but you can normally find Service Manuals for most printers, at www.2manuals.com (most Service Manuals can usually be downloaded for around $10 +/- ). Even if there is not a foreign object stuck in that area, with the top cover off, you might just possibly see what the problem is and even be able to correct it..

Lexmark 5400 series printer


Just today, our Lexmark 5400 began having paper jam issues. We'd try to print, and the paper would initially feed into the back and then wouldn't go any further. Then it gave printer jam error messages. After peering and poking into various areas of the unit I wound up disconnecting the printer from power, phone line, and USB connection, I took it to a better lit room.

Peering carefully into the back paper feed area, I discovered a pencil!! After excising the pencil, the printer worked fine. One of my precious children must have accidentally dropped a pencil into the back, or a pencil was resting on top of the unit and rolled into the back paper feed area.
Lesson learned, don't put pens or pencils on top of the printer.
