Pixma 150 Canon printer jams paper with one sheet or a full load of paper,...any suggestions?


This depends on where the paper jams. Does it pickup the paper and move it at all?
If it does,nt then your paper pickup roller needs a clean.
If it moves it a small way and then jams before the paper gets through the feed rollers then usually something is jammed in the printer that is obstructing the paper from feeding. It may be a small piece of paper or many other things as I have found, pencils, paper clips, coins, all sorts of things in printers.

Printer keeps saying i got a jammed paper there is no jammed paper


There are many places in a printer where a small piece of paper can get stuck. It's not always a sheet of paper. Open all the access panels and check the roller track for pieces of paper. If it is clear, unplug the printer for a few seconds and the plug it back in. This should clear the problem if it was in error. Also check the paper feed for too many sheets stuck together jamming the feed. Before loading paper always "fan" the paper first to avoid sheets being stuck together.

Canon ix4000 printer. Paper jam caused by sticky label, came off backing, stuck to roller. Normal paper jam cures not effective.


This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So since you have used adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers.So use a good clening of the rollers using methyl spirit. also check to see asthere can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.

Canon IX4000 says its jammed when it isn't


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.

Paper jam cleared but paper wont feed


try 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.

Canon MP600 paper jam


I recently had the same problem and was very bummed, because I like the printer, having received it as part of an Apple bundle promotion.
The problem I was having is that I had paper in the rear (auto sheet feeder) area and when I'd try to print, all I heard was clicking and then I'd get a message that there was no paper installed.

Here's what to do.
On the panel, on the left side, there's a button called "Feed Switch."
You'll notice that there's a graphic of the printer to the left of the button with 2 lights. Push the Feed Switch button to toggle the light from the front tray (cassette) to the rear tray (auto sheet feeder)... and when the light is on the rear try (vs. the front tray) you're all set.
This will fix the problem.

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.
