Are you sure the correct paper feed has the paper and the machine knows to pull from that feed?

There are two paper feeds on this unit.. one in the tray down front and one in the rear top. There is a switch on the left hand side of the front panel and whichever feed area you want to use should be GREEN...

Let me know.. we'll go from there if that's not it.

Cannot clear paper jam


Paper Jams in the Automatic Document Feeder
If you're loading legal-size paper, insert only 10 sheets at a time to prevent paper feeding problems.
If paper jams inside the ADF, clear the jam and reload the paper as follows:
1.
Open the ADF cover and remove any jammed paper.

Caution:
Do not try to remove the paper without opening the ADF cover first, or you could damage the mechanism.
2.
Press OK, then select Yes and press OK to clear any messages on the display screen.
3.
Reload the paper. Make sure the corners of the paper are not bent, folded, or curled up.

My 4480 printer is not working. It says our of paper. I tried to reset by unplug and wait and plugged, but it is not working. Please help. Thanks


what does the wireless say on your computer screen. Does it say you have a paper jam or is there a connection. Is the paper holder snuggly against the paper and do you have the paper pushed snuggly up to the feeder. Try running the printer from the computer and try on its own.

If an ink tank is flashing fast even though ink remains in that ink tank, it is inserted into the wrong position. Make sure that the ink tank of the correct coloris inserted in each position matching the label.
-If the ink lamp is not lit, the tank is not set properly. Press the <PUSH> mark on the ink tank until the tank clicks into place. Make sure that all the packaging material is peeled off the ink tank.

Canon IP 90 clogged printhead nozzles. How to remove printhead?


Hi there,

To avoid drying of the Print Head and clogging of the nozzles, note the following.
*When you turn off the Machine
Follow the procedure below to turn off the machine.
1)Press the ON/OFF button to turn off the machine,
2) Confirm that the POWER lamp has gone out.
This takes a few seconds or as long as 20 seconds.
3) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
If you are using a power outlet strip, you can switch off instead.
When you press the ON/OFF button to turn off the machine, the machine automatically puts a protective cap on the Print Head to prevent the ink from drying. If you remove the power cord or switch off the power outlet strip before the POWER lamp goes out, this capping will not be done properly, causing the Print Head to dry and clog.

* When You are not Using the Machine for a Long Time.
When you are not using the machine for a long time, print or copy in both black and white and in color or pertorm Print Head Cleaning, about once a month to prevent degradation of the Print Head.
Numerous nozzles are installed in the Print Head for high -precision printing. Just as the uncapped tip of a ballpoint pen or marker becomes dry and unusable if it is not used for a long period of time, the print nozzles becomes blocked by dried ink. Periodically printing or cleaning of the Print Head can prevent this blockage.
Note :
*If the printed area is traced with a highlight pen or paint-stick or stained with water or sweat, ink may blur depending in the paper.
*If the print head nozzles get clogged , printouts will become faint or particular colors will not be printed properly.

That error is a sheet feeder error, the paper feeder is not moving properly. Any time I've found this problem, I've found broken gear studs and the feeder assembly needs to be replaced. Runs around $40.00 for the part.

I received this response from canon.com. Hope it helps you.

If the paper feed rollers become dirty, they may not be able to properly
feed paper due to the feed roller's slippage. If paper does not feed
correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:

1. Open the Printer properties.

For Windows Vista

a. Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen,
'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'.

Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the
'Control Panel'.

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

For Windows XP Home Edition

a. Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen,
'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and
Faxes.'

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

For Windows XP Professional Edition

a. Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and
'Printers and Faxes.'

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

For Windows 2000

a. Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen,
and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab and click 'Roller Cleaning'.

3. Remove all sheets of paper from the auto sheet feeder.

4. Confirm the following message, and click 'OK'.

Note: Clicking 'OK' will activate the paper feed rollers 30 times. This
activation will take about 90 seconds. Do not perform other operations
until this operation has finished.

5. Confirm the following message, and click 'OK'.

6. After the continuous paper feeding operations in step 5 have
finished, load three sheets of plain paper and click 'OK'.

7. Confirm the following message, and click 'OK'.

Note: The following message is displayed when the paper is fed and ejected.

8. Click 'OK'.

Roller Cleaning is completed.

If the issue continues to persist, try fanning the paper before
reseating in the automatic sheet feeder.

Follow these steps to fan the paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder(ASF):

1. Remove all documents from the ASF.

2. Check for any obstructions.

3. Fan out the sheets of paper so that they do not stick together.

4. Align the edges of the paper.

5. Insert the document stack, face up, into the ASF until you hear a
beep.

6. Adjust the document guides to the width of the document.

If fanning the paper does not help resolve the issue then the iP1800
printer will require service.

special toll-free number for email customers with
unresolved issues and speak to a technician* by dialing 1-866-261-9362,
