Hello there No harm in tring this could do the trick.

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.

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.

My hp deskjet f2430 is showing that there is a paper jam. I have put paper in the printer and it still shows that there is a jam. How can i fix this?


A paper jam usually means that there is paper stuck inside the printer, I would start by taking a flashlight and looking inside the printer were you put the paper in and make sure there is nothing in the way there. You can also try to open up the printer, most have a few places that you can take apart easily and look inside to make sure there is nothing jammed. If you cannot get into the printer then the next best thing would be to take the printer down to a local computer shop and see if they can tell if there is anything in there really quick. Most decent shops will not pay to look into the printer really quick.

Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"


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!

Paper jam message


on most lexmark printers when it reports a paper jam with no paper it means that the main motor drive has not initiated. open the top lid and stick a q-tip in the sensor that tells the printer the lid is open. turn the printer on and observe to see if any of the feed wheels turn during self tast. if they do not you have a bad motor drive.

The printer keeps flashing cler the paper jam but there is no paper jam and plenty of paper loaded that it doea not recognize.


Unplug Printer and flip upside down and shake slightly if nothing comes out flip printer back over and open printer on the inside you will see some rollers in the back of the printer if you look in the middle you should see a little switch there ( that switch is the paper sensor which tells the printer if there is a jam) 332cee0.jpgif it is missing the printer is no good and you should contact Lexmark but if it is bent just gently push it back or bend it gently so it won"t cause problems. if you are unsure about doing that just contact Lexmark and explain your problem and if you have a warranty then they should replace it but if not you can get a new one for around $85.

Canon mx700 won't print displays error306


Open the top of the printer as if you were going to change the ink cartridge and push the cartridge to the left. Reach your hand inside and see if the paper from the jam is truly out of there. Sometimes when you pull the paper out the front or back from a paper jam there can still be something stuck inside that is gumming up the works.

Paper Jam


try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
