Re: printer jam problem
It is probably a matter of worn rollers which means paper jams will continue until they are changed out. Also, this machine does not have a seperation pad so you need to fan the **** of paper when you put it in to help the seperation process.

I had a similar problem, my printer was chewing the paper and then I was getting a jammed paper message. I looked inside but couldn't see much anything. I then removed (unscrewed) all the panels, and next I know, a culprit materialized, in other words, something fell inside the printer. I then managed to put it all back together, ended up with a few extra screws, but heck it works like a clockwork. God bless screwdrivers with magnetic tips, they made my life so easier.
Hello and Welcome to FixYa! Paper jam means their may be small bit paper jam in side, actually there are some "micro sensors" that detect a paper
jam. There will be tiny piece of paper inside those
sensors, thus tripping the sensor and paper jammed keeps coming up. To solve this first of all Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder, If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects thenTurn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air. If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon Printers service provider. I hope this solution helps you Thank you for using FixYa!
Number 1 you failed to mention what kind of printer you have. Number 2 when you print, does paper even feed into the printer? When was the last time that you replaced the feed rollers? Yes it is possible that a sensor is jammed. Before the 13.02 error, did the printer actually have a paper jam? If yes, was there a piece of paper missing from the jammed sheet or was it whole?
This is caused by dirty exit roller. As this machine is a pain to dismantle I suggest that you try and clean these rollers ( 3 or 4 rubber small ) as they rotate. Opening and closing the front door will keep rotating them for you. Use a damp wrm water lint free cloth. I use a compound named Print Clean but metho can be used also.
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!
Clearing a paper jam in a Lexmark laser printer is an easy thing to do.
Laser printers produce high-quality products and are fairly complex
machines, but paper jams (in most cases) can be solved mechanically
with a little know-how and time. Follow these steps to learn how to
clear a paper jam in a Lexmark laser printer.
Take the paper out of the paper trays. This will prevent any more paper from being drawn into the printer to further the jam.
the cover from the housing of your Lexmark laser printer. This will
expose the inner workings of the printer, and you also should be able
to see the jammed paper.
Pull gently on the jammed paper. In many cases this is all that is required; the paper jam should move out slowly and smoothly.
the flashing paper jam button. This will allow the rotors to turn
freely, which will facilitate the easy removal of the jam.
your Lexmark laser printer if the jam persists. This will allow you to
pull more firmly without the gears working against you.
the inner workings and confirm that all paper and shreds of paper have
been removed. If the paper tore during the clearing, make sure none
remains or it will inhibit normal printer function.
Plug the printer back in, refill the paper tray and try to print again.
Make sure to use a printer and paper type that are compatible. Consult your owner’s manual and the manufacturer’s Web site.
To deal with a large jam, it might be necessary to pull sheets from the middle of the jam in order to loosen the whole thing.
pull the paper “with the grain” of the mechanism, if possible. Pull it
through the printer the way paper normally travels so that you don’t go
against the gears.
For more serious repairs, contact an electronic store or professional repair person.
When a paper jam occurs during printing for some reason, the printer
beeps, displaying the message <PAPER JAM> in the display. When
a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed paper using the following
procedure, and then resume the job. If the message that indicates the
paper jam does not disappear even after removing the jammed paper
following the procedure, there is a possibility that torn pieces of
paper are still left inside the printer. Inspect each part of the
printer again, and completely remove all pieces of jammed paper.
The only way to find paper remnants is to unplug the printer and inspect the paper path. It also helps to have a good focusing flashlight, skinny needle nose pliers, a can of compressed air (used sparingly) and a long thin probe. Your specific printer should be giving you jam messages with a location code as well. I?ve attached a link to an HP page containing a diagram of the 3500 paper path and the error code jam locations:
I solved this problem in my shops years ago by not letting anyone else clear jams OR insisting that any paper removed as a result of a jam is given to me. If any corners or pieces are missing I know what to look for and approximately where.
