Orange flashing 3 times

This is a paper jam error. check for any paper jammed in the printer, switch it off and open all trays, sheet feeders, duplex unit to check for any paper. if paper was jammed previously and was torn, there might be a piece of paper still stuck in it.

hope this helps!

It says the paper is jammed, but there's no paper in it!!

This is an awesome printer. Did you know it can duplex (print on both sides of the paper) automatically? The jam "could" be in the duplexer on the back or, the duplexer unit isn't locked into place.

Unplug the printer and open the rear door, check for visible paper jam, remove, close door.

There's also access to the feed mechanism from the bottom of the printer.

Unplug printer.

(1) Remove the Cassette. (paper tray on bottom of printer)

If the paper is loaded in the Auto Sheet Feeder (on back of printer), remove the paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder and close the Paper Support.
(2) Stand the machine with the left side down.
(3) Slowly pull the jammed paper out while pulling the green cover toward you.

Set the machine back to its original position immediately after removing the jammed paper.
(4) If any paper is sticking out of the Cassette, reload the paper in the Cassette.
Reload paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder, if necessary.
(5) Insert the Cassette into the machine.
(6) Press the OK button on the machine.

Some of these instructions were copied from the online/downloadable printer manual from Canon's web site:

Canon PIXMA ip4000/paper jammed problem

Tackler- I dont think I have a solution but I know that the cassette should stick out about 5cm i.e. the cover just fits on nicely. I found with mine sometimes it needed a firm (but not hard) push in as obviously some sensor was not being tripped and it would just not pick up the paper in the tray. Have you tried using the top down feed? At least if that works you can print (and you can stack up a couple of pages).

Pixma i4000 - manual feed picks up 2 to 3 sheets at a time

Get a window cleaning product such as windowlene and a soft but LINT FREE cloth. Remove any paper from the feeder and turn off the machine

Look into to sheet feeder and identify any rubber areas. There should be a rubber pick up wheel and just beyond it a separator pad. There may also be a cork pad in the vicinity.

Use your cloth well dampened and clean all these item as best you can. You can rotate the wheels but ensure you go the correct direction and do not force anything that does not want to move. This will be chore as access is only easy for pixies. Once you have then cleaned and dried off, replace the paper and restore the power.

Try running a print job and see if it makes much difference. If it helps, then you will know that the pick up wheel and separator pad are worn out and could do with replacing.

The paper jam error is related to this issue as the printer is expecting the leading edge of the paper to pass its sensor and then 297mm later the trailing edge should pass the same point. If the machine feeds more than one sheet, the chances are that the paper length will be altered and the machine thinks a bit has been left behind.

Let me know how you get on
