Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I can't get my printer to print. The error

I can't get my printer to print. The error message says there is a paper jam, but I can't see any paper at either end and did not previously have paper tear or jam. After I press the button it will say empty. It sounds as if it is pulling paper in, but no paper moves. I have even tried feeding one page at a time, but have had no luck.

It says paper jam because the paper bar (located just before the paper exit) can't (or does it very badly) roll. It can be caused by a lot of things that have fallen inside the printer. Open it and try to see what's blocking the bar

Printer will not print after paper jam. after removing the jam the ready light comes on and when we try to print again the screen shows it is preparing to print but it does not print


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Continuous PAper jam error-message!!!


Sounds like a small piece of the jammed paper is stuck inside on a paper path switch OR in pulling out the jam you've dislocated a switch actuator so it is not working correctly. Careful checking of the paper path components should find it. Probably a slot in one of the guides is hiding it.
