SOURCE: paper jam and 2 found springs

Those 2 springs should be re-installed, they should be put back in place in the paper guide assembly in the back they should be there to apply pressure to the feed rollers so the paper will feed.

SOURCE: Paper Jam

Hi,

You need to try clearing the paper using a airblower if you do not have a air blower try with a vacuum cleaner, surely it cleans up. Unless until you remove the paper it shows the msg.

If you think you have no other option and you tried everything its better to call some service guy and get it done.

Regards

MF4350d gives a paper jam error when it has no paper in it.


I hired a technician who came to house and showed me where the paper jam was hidden... found technician on craigslist for $50 flat rate, came out on Saturday. He solved the paper jam problem in 20 minutes. One place to check for paper jam you cannot see until to look behind a hinged plastic flap above the cartridge area. Remove cartridge.Above the cartridge area is a width-wide plastic piece, about 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide from top to bottom, hindged along the top edge, moves but is attached along the two lower corners of the piece by small springs (one at each corner) to the housing of the machine. You cannot easily lift the plastic flap up to look behind it for paper jam until you remove the springs. I used forceps to remove them. Tweezers may work. Don't lose them! Once you remove the springs you can easily lift up the plastic flap (it is hinged) and look behind it into the crevices for any paper. That is where we found a small piece of paper. We needed a skinny forceps to reach into the crevice to get the paper out.

Help!


This roller is actually the registration roller. Most often what happens is the plastic tabs that hold the pressure springs break. At either end of the roller there should be a plastic block along with the white lever and spring that runs between the 2. If either of these springs is missing then the tabs have broken and the spring has come off. The reason the paper stops is there is insufficient pressure to pull the paper thru. You need to check both sides and determine which of the 3 parts per side that you will need. You can order them from precisionroller.com
They have pictures of the parts so you can see whch ones you need. Just search for "Canon PC430 registration" at you will see the pics of the parts you need.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Paper Jam


I have just had the same problem on one of these Canon MF4150 machines.
The manufactures warranty on our machine had expired just one week before this happened so I had to fix this myself.
The problem we had (which is very likely to be the same cause as yours) is when we removed some torn jammed paper, it had somehow pulled off a spring from inside the machine. The spring was linked to the paper jam sensor.
It does involve a LOT of work to fix it, and unless you are very 'techy' it may be quite a difficult task to do this for the 'average' person.
I had to completely disassemble the machine: Take off the front first (lift up the cover and there is 2 screws at the front and 2 clips on the bottom of the machine) Then remove the 2sides and finally the top (screws should be easy to see, to get the sides off, un-clip along the front edges and gently move them outwards and slide them backwards to release the clips on the back) being careful with the wires going to the scanner part). Then look for the fuser unit which is near the top at the back, there is a black rounded cover over the fuser. To remove the cover, look for 2 small clips one at each side and unclip the cover and gently lift upwards.  Under the cover on the left side you will see a small plastic rod which goes from the left side to a small tab in the middle, if you look about half way along that rod you should see a tiny spring, make sure this is clipped on properly and that you are able to rotate the rod and it should spring back to the proper position when you let go.
Once this is done, put it all back together again and it should work fine.

I'm sure a lot of other people probably have this same problem too so I hope this helps someone.

My epson cs7800


I had the same problem and found a small spring was loose and interfering with the paper. The Spring was on the right side as you look at the printer, near the bottom of the paper feeder. I took it out and it works fine, for now.

Canon pc 430 feeder problem


You may have to fabricate a new anchor for one end of the spring on the side opposite the control panel. There is a wimpy plastic tab that breaks off here, right next to a black Phillips-head screw. Remove this screw and bend a piece of light wire around it, leaving a small hooked end sticking out for the spring to fasten on to. Replace the screw and install the spring. When you install the spring, it must go over the top of the tiny white plastic wheel, in the U-shaped groove.

This is how I repaired my PC430 several years ago and it's still working fine.

Canon Pc720 Copier Paper Jam


The problem with the paper jam (but not feeding) is that a small
piece of plastic that holds one end of a spring the causes the feed
gears to push against the powered gear on the back side of the toner
cartridge breaks off. So the unit does not feed (no pickup rollers
etc) and it thinks there is a paper jam (no moving paper). Orienting
the front as the side you work at, the back being the back, the
feed being the side the paper goes into and the output being the
side the finished copy comes out, open the unit. Looking into it
from the output side almost to the input on the bottom notice the
small hairlike things sticking up. Move to the left (back of the
machine) and see a few white gears all hooked into this gray metal
housing that moves up and down about 1/2 inch (It pivots). At the
top input side of this metal you will see a part of the metal that
stick up and has a small slot in it. the spring used to hook onto
this and the other end hooked to a small piece of plastic down and
more to the input side a bit, onto the upper input side of the white
plastic part that houses a shaft to a roller (fat little spring
about 1 inch long). the plastic part breaks off and you usually
can't see that a part was even there. The spring will still be in
the area. If you are handy, you can figure out how to fix it. I got
a longer spring (same strength) bent the metal toward the back 1/4"
and ran the new spring from there to a 1/16 hole I drilled in the
plastic side next to the circuit board (down low and back). I shaped
the end of the spring (where I drilled)to keep it more inside and
not hit anything. Works fine.

Canon i9900 blinking three orange / jam


I had the same problem with my i9900 - 3 orange flashes on the the error light (Paper Jam) and yet I could slip a sheet of paper in and it would feed through OK. My problem is that the SPRING on the PAPER SENSOR had come off, leaving the sensor in the where it would be if there was a paper jam.

You have to REMOVE the main cover of the printer to find and fix this problem You have to find all of the release points (look for triangles on the plastic covers) where you insert a small tool/screwdriver to (1) press 1 release each side & remove the 2 silver end panels, (2) press 1 release to remove the control switch & carefully disconnect the two connectors inside. Start with the triangle rlease on the lower front left of the main cover, then 1 on the left side, 3 on the back, 1 on the right side, and finally 1 on the lower front right side and gently lift the whole cover off.

You can then look inside with a flashlight from the top rear just behind the left side paper feed roller and see a small switch which pivots when paper is fed through the printer. Feed a sheet of paper and see if the spring is returning it to the normal (no jam) position. I used a long pair of tweezers to reach inside and slip the spring back into its normal position which is behind the small slot on the far right side of the switch. No pictures, but it should be intuitive where the spring should go. Once reinstalled, the switch will move back to the normal position and your paper jam should be fixed.

This SAME MECHANISM is also used in a number of other Canon i & ip series printers so this general approach to fixing this in other models could be the same - (1) remove the cover, (2) locate the switch, and (3) put the spring back into the correct positiion.
