Question about Canon Pixma MP480 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The printer keeps indicating an error saying to add paper. It has paper. I have tried removing and adding paper to no avail. I believe something is broken. what is the best way to get this repaired? or is it cheaper to just buy a new one? Is there anywhere that offers a discount for trading in a broken one? Thanks!

Look this may seem idiotic but i had a small black sliver of plastic right at the bottom, jamming my feed, was acting like it was ok but gave the same problems, just drag it out and give a shake, its worked for me a few times now, maybe im just messy:)

Message in the screen add paper


The best thing you can do is read the manual first, it explains all these things. Just in case: That is telling you to put more paper in or it will quit printing. Try these links:

My brother printer mfc-j415w keeps giving me an error message which says paper jammed, I removed all paper and bits of debris found in between the rollers but it still keeps giving me the same error m


there will be paper to the side of the printer which is stopping the carriage from travelling fully which will also be why it makes a noise.
If its to the right of the carriage, start printer and when carriage starts to move pull the power lead, you'll be able to move the carriage out of the way and look in with a torch to find the paper or foreign object. Just remove it and restart the printer and everything will be normal.

Please indicate if it fixed your problem here.

I have an officejet 5610 all-in-one inkjet printer. There is an ornage exclamation mark next to the setup between the pound sign and the setup button that keeps blinking. How do I get it to quit. I...


The Exclamation mark is an Attention: error indicator. There is a problem that you need to fix. You need to fix the problem. Was there is any message on the LCD screen when you started having the error?

Press Cancel and try printing again since you apparently cleared the LCD message. The problem could be a paper jam, no paper in the paper tray (or the printer can't pick up the paper), an ink issue or something else.

Please add a comment with the error message for additional support. I need more information to tell you what steps are most likely to solve your problem.

KEEPS SAYING PAPER JAM AND THERE ISNT ONE. DOESNT SEEM TO WANT OT PICK UP PAPER


ok im going to guess here that you are getting a 201 paper jam error with no paper in the printer. this would indicate a bad main motor drive replace it.
if its a 202 error check the 2 sensors on the fuser for stuck flags
if its a 241 error clean the pick wheels with aresol elctronic contact cleaner to remove the glue build up from them. or replace them

OUT OF PAPER ERROR


You don't say so in your post, but I'm assuming you ran out of paper and you added more paper to the printer. You could try unplugging the printer's power cord, waiting about 30 seconds or so, and then plugging it back in to see if that will clear the error message.

The HP web site also has a page that offers more solutions:

Out of Paper Error

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Once remove both the trays and insert them again and if the problem persists, power cycle and semi-full reset the all-in-one.

Printer not responding after a jam


http://files.oce.com/nl/download/printers/PP20D%20Operation%20Guide%20(Engelstalig).pdf Here is the link to the pdf manual for the printer. They show some light sequences and mention something about the old toner cartridge may need to be emptied/replaced. I'll let you know if I think of anything else. Tim
