    Mine started jamming. I looked for troubleshooting guide. Supposed to make sure inks are seated properly. They are and I have replaced twice after that and still have about a 90% paper jam.

When i try to print something, a window pops up that says I have a paper jam and the printer has an e then a 3 flashing. there is no paper jam. I've un-installed and re-installed with no luck and I can't...


Dear Sir,

plzz folow this step to solved your problem

  • Step 1 Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
  • Step 2 Turn off the printer.
  • Step 3 Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  • Step 4 Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  • Step 5 If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
  • Step 6clear-printer-paper-1.6-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a00/3f/31/clear-printer-paper-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  • Step 7clear-printer-paper-1.7-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep7 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a00/3f/31/clear-printer-paper-1.7-800X800.jpg'); }); If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.
  • Step 8 Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  • Step 9 If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path


  • Thanks For Your Time,

    Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"


    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!

    My canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?


    give this a try

    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
    3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
    4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
    5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
    6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
    7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
    8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
    9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
    10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



    alternative :
    Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

    Canon mx700 won't print displays error306


    Open the top of the printer as if you were going to change the ink cartridge and push the cartridge to the left. Reach your hand inside and see if the paper from the jam is truly out of there. Sometimes when you pull the paper out the front or back from a paper jam there can still be something stuck inside that is gumming up the works.

    Printer keeps on jamming paper


    Dear all,
    I will try to help you. Paper jam error may be caused by some possibilities. So, please notice this indication:
    • If the printer status is READY immediately after Power ON then Paper Jam Error message appears while feeding the paper: Sheet Feeder Unit is faulty or any other material (such as broken paper) present inside paper path blocking paper end to reach paper feed sensor.
    • If Paper Jam Error messages appears immediately after Power ON: Paper feed sensor or logic board is faulty
    Corrective action:
    • Remove the material from paper path
    • Replace Sheet Feeder Unit
    • Replace Paper Feed Sensor / Logic Board
    Please rate me as Fixya if you find this useful for you. Thanks.

    Canon PIXMA MP160 showing paper jam, but none


    hi
    just recently had these problems
    symptoms:
    LED flashing E3 code and alarm light was solid. But dissapeared when opened the coved and came back on when closed the cover.
    Also the when the cover was open the inks did not slide out to the left and stayed to the right side.
    There was no paper jam, but error said paper jam.

    Solution:
    1. I took a thick piece of paper, from like a paper folder ones, thick enough to go in the printer and not curl up when pushed..
    2. turned off the printer and turned it back on.
    3, while printer was turning on,and makings sound as it does normally when turning on, I pushed through the piece of paper and the rotors stoped for a millisecond.
    4.the rotors started again and pushed out the paper by it self with out my force.
    5. I let the printer get started. and then turned it off and then on.
    6. this solved all of my problems.
    this was the first problem ever with this printer in 3 years.,preety good printer.

    good luck...

    Canon S 520 doesn`t print


    Two flashes: Out of paper, paper jam or paper feed error
    Replace the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
    If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam and press the RESUME/CANCEL
    button.

    Three flashes: Paper jam
    If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer
    correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

    Four flashes: Empty ink tank
    One of the ink tanks is empty. Replace it.

    Six flashes: No print head installed
    Install a print head.

    Seven flashes: Defective print head
    Remove and reinstall the print head.
    Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed. If reinstalling the print head
    does not resolve the problem, replace it with a new one.

    Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
    The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight
    flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL
    button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank
    becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative to have the waste ink
    tank replaced. Canon recommends to call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once
    the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will be no longer
    possible.
