Hello there 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.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon 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.

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.

The Power Supplies for the MP600 burn out over time. They are easy to buy and replace:
My MP600 Power supply died as well. Web searches (including Canon) turned up nothing. Called Canon. To order power supply from Canon, call: 866-481-2569 (credit card over the phone, no on-line interface). $34.49 with tax and delivery.
Note: the power supply has black tabs the you push away from the grey power supply case. One tab in front and one in back. The grey power supply box pulls right out of the printer. The internal connector (six colored wires) pulls straight out (there is no release tab/catch). Use small screwdriver or needle nose plyers to carefully remove. Pull/pry the female white nylon connector. Do not pull on the wires.

Try turn it upside down and shake it - possibly it may fallout. If it is totally jammed, try using something like a crochet hook to fish it up or use a long needle nose plier to grab it and work it gently while pulling until it comes loose.

Paper is not jammed, however the error screen comes up everytime with the comments.... paper output slot the paper is jammed. clear the paper and press ok. press ok and it goes back to the same screen. ...

try to check inside your printer some small torn papers must have been left inside the mechanism of the printer and that it can detect that is why it keeps prompting a window saying it is jammed.

MP600 paper jam but no paper in printer

reset the printer completely, unplug the machine, unplug the connections. Then reinstall the drivers for it on the computer. 

Reinitialize the printer and print a test page. If it says there is a jam still, look on the in side roller roter. Sometimes paper jams are as little as a small piece of ripped off paper stuck in the roller roter (the sides of the roller that guides the paper in to the printer.) 

If there is nothing cleaning the heads of the printer is the next step. Using rubbing alcohol and a clean qtip rub the heads and let them air dry.

If these don't work then the controller card for the printer is damaged and is inable to read the printer properly and its time to get a new machine.

I suggest a personal laserprinter, they are around 60 dollars now and will last you four or five years with out any new cartridges.

Scangear - scanning problems with mp600

windows XP instructions.can be easily applied to other operating systems
-turn printer/scanner on
-go to control panel
-click on system
-click on hardware
-click on device manager
-click on imaging devices
-right click on canon mp600 and choose updat driver option and then after that is on scan for hardware changes
(below images provided)



this should make sure scanner work.. but if it still doesnt work then go back to the device manager and check if there are any hradwares with a yellow question mark beside them.if there is then right click on them and click update driver.
if that does not solve the problem try reinstalling the CD or go to the canon MP00 web page (google it) to dowmload the printer/scanner drivers. and repeat everything until it works or until you give up =). hope it all works out bye!
