Most likely there is something stuck in a different sensor. Open all the doors and remove and removable assemblies and check for stuck sensors.

My Canon MP530 indicates that I have a paper jam. There is no paper jam - I have checked and re-checked and turned it off and on several times and it is still reading that there is a paper jam. How do I...


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.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


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.

Can't fax or copy on brother mfc3240c machine


Sounds like you may have a small obstruction in the scanner feed. This would inhibit making copies and sending faxes. Lift this section up slightly to inspect for small pieces of paper or dust. Blowing it out with compressed air would also be a good idea.

Machine reads "document jammed"


its the problem of the rollers which pulls the papers they r worn out.I've seen this before repairing computers and asked about fax machines while I am there. There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.

Paper jam sending faxes


It is the document stop arm that is broken.You can remove it.The machine will work without it.
Just make sure you remove the document stop arm and not one of the other sensor flags in the document feeder.

Copying and fax sending problem


  1. Just check & clean the dust in the original feeding area.
  2. if not solved, clean the Document feed sensor or replace the same. But for this you need to open the body of the fax machine.

There is a black sensor arm in the rear of the machine just out of the fuser unit (hot section) on a black cover. It can become dislodged. Check this will read a false jam.

Paper Jam message


There are a couple of sensor flags in side the machine and also the document feeder area. Little black levers that flip and trip a sensor. Make sure they are all moving freely. There is one or two in the doc feed area. One inside the paper feed area. One or two in the ribbon area.
