Canon S750 Bubblejet Printer paper jam--now won't print
I have the printer model mentioned above. While attempting to print something, the paper jammed inside the printer. So I removed the paper that jammed and made sure the paper was aligned properly in the tray, but the printer wouldn't print (even after totally powering down and unplugging-then plugging back in and powering back up). Now when I turn the printer on, I see an intermittent green light followed by 7 orange light flashes. The manual says this means the printhead is defective. How can my printhead be defective all of a sudden after 1 peiece of paper got jammed? I also noticed (in the paper feed area) that there was a smooth oval-shaped piece of metal, maybe 1 1/2 by 3/4 inches in size, with a metal peg on the concave side of it. I have to believe this came from the printer, but I could be wrong-- Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,i recently had a paper jam problem with the Canon ImageClass MF3240. I followed all the possible fix to remove the jam, but after clearing the paper in all access doors, the printer still gives the paper jam error. Restarted the printer several times to no avail and the red light keeps blinking. Well here is something not suggested in the manual.
1. Turn off your printer. 2. Pull off all plugs attached to your printer back. 3. Remove the paper tray to look for the sensor located underneath the printer. 4. Get a flashlight and look closely. The sensor is located in a small hole, just above the small plastic "lever" (looks like a small hockey paddle) on the left side of the gray rubber roller. 5. There is a tiny paper shred stuck inside and this causes the sensor to detect a paper jam. 6. Get a small tweezer to remove that paper. 7. Return all cables and start your printer and that's it!
Hope this helps you as it saved me a big headache.
Also, How Come My Printer Won't Take the Paper?
Printer problems are a common occurrence. There are various reasons why a printer won't take paper. Printer paper sometimes can become jammed in the machine. It may be wrinkled or too big in size.
Computer Glitch Printer paper also may be of poor quality or too thick. Paper may not be lined up correctly, and can jam within a printer as it goes through the feed. The power may not be on. Sometimes a printer that is attached to a computer can get knocked off track from too much printing, or a glitch within the computer system.
USB Printer Cable Something as simple as re-installing the computer with use of a new USB printer cable may fix the problem, or unplugging the printer and then plugging it back in.
Printer Rollers The rollers may be worn within the printer, and can't grab the paper correctly to guide it through the machine. If this is the case, the rollers will have to be replaced.
Hi there I think THE 6000 is the same problem error as the ERROR 6A00 This answers with a titch more detail. The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And it’s always a paper path error or purge unit. The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow. So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well. Also clean the purge unit out make sure all is clean. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

A common issue is moisture. As the relative humidity changes, the paper will absorb some of the excess moisture. (Ink jets don't get as hot as other printers; but they do have temperature changes during operation.)
Unfortunately, the only solution that I have ever found is to use paper from a just opened package. Try to keep only enough paper in the printer for a short duration of printing (1-2 weeks). Keep the rest of an open package of paper somewhere else where the temperature and humidity stays fairly constant.
Were you able to remove all of the original jammed business cards? where the leading edge of the "Fanfold" prints occurs, you will probably find something blocking the paper path. HP printers usually have a limit on the paper weight that the printer can handle when doing duplex (2 sided) printing. Check this against the weight of the cards you are printing.
