PIXMA MP450 on Vista keeps telling me there is a paper jamb when trying to copy or print. Solution might be to clean rollers but on line manual deals only with XP not Vista for that issue...

Check carefully for small fragments of paper inside the printer. A small piece of paper inside the printer may had triggered back the paper jam when you tried to print.
Chech also that there is no small object stuch near the tractors , where the printer get the paper, or inside the printer. May seem weird but I often found screws and even some coin inside printers.
Ensure carefully that all the printer doors are closed and in place.

At this point disconnect usb cable, disconnect printer from usb and power cable.
Connect cables back, starting from power cable, without connecting to pc.

If you still have the problem then you will need to service your printer.
If yo do not have the problem, eventually install the driver ensuring USB is NOT CONNECTED, this is important.
Reconnect printer only after installing the driver or when required by software.

If you still are in trouble you need to start servicing the printer.
If the problem diagnosed is paper jam (be sure) then there should be no need to use reset procedure. If you did not solve with all the above it is likely an internal fault.
If the signaled problem is different from paper jam you may be able to fix it with a reset procedure from service mode. Like this one for waste tank ink error msg.

    I forgot,
    cleaning rollers will help you if the printer is leaving ink stripes or stains on the printout, cleaning head and nozzle check is probably what you wanted to do in Vista, you will find it in the canon software , under start button, but it is difficult that you fix it with this procedure, unless is a head or cartridges related problem.

    Cleaning the rollers is something you should try regardless of Vista or XP.

Canon pixma mp495 rear tray rollers only pulls paper in on one side then it jams


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or sticky rollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces of paper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these pieces of paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper to not feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

Says paper jam but there is none. pixma mp450


Take any paper out of the paper feeder and get a plastic ruler the softer the better lift the top of the printer up so you can see where the print cartridges are now push the ruler down through the paper feed roller be careful because you could break the rollers go from left to right right to left twice and check for any debris once you have done this unplug the printer for about 20 seconds then plug back in and let it reset then try copying or printing a doc and see how you go!

Paper wont load


You can try cleaning the rubber paper feed rollers, located where the paper feed into the printer. Use a rag moist with rubbing alcohol and rub all rollers thoroughly and this should help. Good luck John

Paper isnt loading correctly


My printer does that too, after many copies have been printed out. There is this mechanism that pushes the paper forward and another to slide one paper in... well it won't get in. I tried to add "grease" at the right side, "facing the printer", of that mechanism that made contact to the rollers which slides a paper in..  well my printer now works fine
