Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer
Sometimes paper jams consist of no more than a small sliver of paper
that has peeled off of a sheet and lodged in one of the paper sensors.
If you've removed the paper trays, opened every access cover and pulled
out the toner cartridge, but still don't find a sheet of paper, you may
need to look closer. In extreme cases, it may be necessary to remove
feed roller assemblies to be able to check the entire paper path,
although in practice I have personally never needed to do so. Finally,
depending on the type of sensor, it could simply be a build-up of paper
dust that causes the sensor to think there's a jam. Try blowing out
the printer's innards with compressed air at low pressure (20-40 psi).
if that doesnt help... we ll have to go in for a bit unconventional method....
shaking the printer upside down a couple times does the trick usually...make sure u dont shake too violently....
if the above methods doesnt help you sort it out.... and if ur printer is past its warranty claims...
make use of the service manual for your printer found in the below link and try investigating the paper feeding mechanism for a shred of dust.. not necessarily a paper....
if it still doesnt help....it's sounding like the paper sensor flag either got stuck or broken when the paper got jammed and later may have been taken out
also what you can try is, take a piece of ~70lb cardstock, and with the POWER OFF, gently push this through the paper-path of the printer - this will help push anything else out that's in the way that may be blocking it.
