Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer
I have a Canon Pixma MP470 printer. It keeps saying "Paper output slot: the paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press OK." I took out the jammed paper, however it still keeps telling me to clear the paper. I've restarted the printer numerous times, checked over and over again for something else jammed, even air dusted the ******. It still keeps telling me to clear the paper. What do I do?
I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:
1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

No solutions found. When sending print command printer runs one page thru to ensure there is no jam. When the 2nd page (printing page) starts into the printer it stops after traveling 1/3 into printer & reports that it has jammed. No ammount of removal & retrying yields success.
