    The printer indicates there is a "paper jam." But we've looked through the entire machine to see if there is loose paper stuck anywhere. There is none.

Very frustrating ... checked all over for remaining jams - but the message "paper jam" just won't go away after clearing a paper jam. Eventually, it goes away but no way to predict how long it will take!

Hi Rosa,
There was a paper jam and you cleared the jam, however you missed out to do one other thing. Cleaning the Rollers.

If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.

You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1.Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

2.Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

3.Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.

(1) Press the g0081065_tcm14-774017.jpg (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

4.Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.


This should fix the issue

Pixma 150 Canon printer jams paper with one sheet or a full load of paper,...any suggestions?


This depends on where the paper jams. Does it pickup the paper and move it at all?
If it does,nt then your paper pickup roller needs a clean.
If it moves it a small way and then jams before the paper gets through the feed rollers then usually something is jammed in the printer that is obstructing the paper from feeding. It may be a small piece of paper or many other things as I have found, pencils, paper clips, coins, all sorts of things in printers.

The paper jams when I try to print. It will not feed from either the lower or the upper paper feed. It is jamming in the back of the printer.


Paper jams


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease.


Open the Rear Cover.

If you can see the jammed paper, slowly pull the paper out.

Clean the rollers in the rear section too.

Paper feed issues when there is no Paper jam. All the rollers move when the printer tries to feed paper. It'll feed about and inch and a half of paper and then stop showing a Paper Jam.

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.

When trying to print the paper won't feed through. It will on the left side (looking at the front of the printer) but won't on the right preventing it to print. I just bought and replaced both...


There could be something blocking the paper path. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder. Make sure there are foreign objects or debris that could cause this problem.

Paper won't feed properly and jams. the paper starts to feed then twists and jams.


There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.

This same prolem has plagued many with the MP150 cannon printer, Here's what I did to fix this...E3 code shown in window
when no actual paper jam could be viewed ! I did the restart thing
by turning the printer OFF and waited (10) seconds or more, then
when I turned it back on...I listened to here the feed rollers turning
and forced feed a sheet of paper into the feed rollers..and sure enough OUT CAME a small piece of paper..actually a small strip of glossy paper like a strip that might be attached to a part during manufactureing..any way that paper has printing on it, it says;
(nitto No.500) it would be interesting to know if others out there
find the same piece of paper !! Give this fix a try. Palcando.
