Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I have a Canon ip 4300. Recently I had a paper jamb (81/2 X 11)

. The jamb was caused by a misaligned sheet of paper being dragged into the machine. I slowly pulled the paper out in reverse. It did not tear or appear to have left any residual in the printer. After removing the paper I cannot get the printer to print. The orange light on the front flashes and I get an onscreen error message telling me that there is paper jammed into the printer and to remove it before continuing. I have opened front, top, back and bottom and cannot find any jammed paper. Occasionally the paper will simply feed straight through the printer without the print cartridge carriage activating.
Suggestions??

Thanks.

Printer jams when duplexing


Most printer jambs are caused by a couple of things. Have you tried different paper? Sometimes paper that is curled, or if the humidity is too low, the paper will hold a static charge and cause paper feed problems. The other is worn or dirty feed rollers, try cleaning the feed rollers with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.

A paper jam on my canon ip4800 caused the print to be misaligned. now the edges are not straight. help!


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

Hi there have got a cannon pixma 492 had problem really since i brought then recently cant use had for 12mths only use a few times a month paper gets jammed then error 5200 please help i dont know what to...


When you removed the jammed paper, did the paper come out inone piece, if not did all the pieces that were removed make up the entire sheetof paper?
Otherwise there may be still a small piece/s of paper still in the printer,which is causing this error message.

Hp deskjet 5550 is always had a paper jam. what do you think is the problem of my printer? what is the possible solutions?


When removing a sheet of paper from a jambed printer, you need to be careful to slowly remove the paper without tearing the paper. This could lead to a tiny piece of paper being left behind and this will cause other paper jambs.
When this happens, the printer may need to be dismantled to remove the paper.
The other cause could be that there is uneven pressure across the rollers or dirty rollers which causes the paper to feed through unevenly and results in a paper jambs.
Check the printer for pieces of paper near the rollers and gears.
Clean the rollers, make sure there are no deposits on the rollers.
