My canon ip1900 says paper jam, gives 3 orange flashes and 1 green flash .cant find any paper jam?


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.

Xerox Phaser 8400: Our printer keeps jamming. Some of the ink is staying on the right edge of the drum and it seems as the paper goes through the printer it gets stuck on that ink. We use only Xerox ink...


There are no less than 5 places on this model where you might clear a paper jam. Is it possible you still have a small bit of paper stuck somewhere?

Paper jammed but no paper is jammed.


Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.

Printer will not feed paper


there could be a small paper jam or then theres a problem with the pickup but try this solution first in making sure theres no jam:

  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.

Heavier weight resume paper was apparently misaligned and started to jam printer. I pulled paper out and now carrier is stuck in middle, the power button and paper jam button both blinking. I tried...


Hi,
Although you got the paper out of the printer, there may still be some small pieces jammed under the print head. You may have to manually move the print head to get at the small pieces. You need to make sure the printer is unplugged before you try this. Once the carriage seems to move freely plug the printer back in, it should move to the right where it will come to rest. You should go through the change ink process, but just take out the one that's already in there and then put it back in again. Also run the head cleaning, alignment, and print test utility before attempting to print. If you still are having problems there may still be pieces of paper stuck in the print head. In that case repeat the process again. I hope this helps you.

Have a great day!

Carol.

Made a mistake buying this printer!!


First off, How many times does it flash organge before it goes to green?

two: out of paper
three: paper jam
four: Ink has run out
Five: FINE cartridge cannot be found
Seven: FINE Cart. not installed in correct position
Eight: Ink absorber almost full

Count how many times it flashes. Then get back to me.
Make sure the little tab for the paper size is all the way to the right. also check the printer settings on your computer to make sure the paper size is the size you want. IE:letter. Also make sure the inks are in their correct positions.Black on the right hand side and color on the left. Also check to see if there is anything stuck inside the printer that could jam the paper.
