I finally fixed the problem by running two sheets of heavy card stock through at the same time. With the machine off, I positioned the two sheets in the feeder so that they would be pulled in when the printer was turned on. When I turned on the printer, it drew the two sheets through and I guess this reset the paper sensor. I previously found that only one sheet at a time did't work.
I found this solution posted by JsamJr answering another question but it worked for me. pushing the card in and then removing it and pressing ok worked

Paper jam error with my canon mp180 printer and it wont let me do anything i have checked the printer numerous times to see if theres anything in there and theres not.


This problem can occur, may be there is no paper jam inside but improperly inserted paper in the paper tray.
Check and verify that there is no paper or a piece of paper stuck in the roller or the belt. Remove all the paper from the paper tray and insert them again, do not fill the paper tray fully,

Canon pixma mp180 - not pulling paper in


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

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.

Says there is a paper jam everytime i try to print


Hello

Check within your paper feeder rollers there might be something stuck inside it like paper clips, coins or anything small and solid. If you can find way to open the printer without braking it, that would be nice.

Hope this helps.

Paper Jam Error


check the paper feed section of the printer. it may be item stuck in the paper path. causing the paper jam senor to stay on. also it know for these printer to have a waste in full. this will stop all workings of the printer. as these printer only have small waste ink pad in them. Need to know if the printer is flashing just green or if it flashing green led then a orange one.

Printing


Placing one sheet at atime is worse usually as these units feed off a minimum level. Keep them topped up to at least no less than 10 sheets. The printers sound like the have a paper feeding issue. Could be a jam. Open unit, check for paper jam. Cheers lilacgerry xxx
