Hi,

To fix this kind of error, remove the ink cartridge and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it.Check if anything comes out.If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of card stock 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. Open up the printer and clean the insides with a soft cloth and a brush. That should remove all the bits of paper inside.The teeth on the roller sides may have some dirt stuck on them which does not allow the rollers to roll freely and hence is as bad as paper jam. The idea is that the rollers do not roll whether because of paper or some dirt on the roller teeth. They have to be cleaned.
Thank you !!

Machine says paper jam and to remove paper No paper in machine Cant clear error codes


Disconnect the power cord from the back of the Canon Inkjet Printer. This is an important step when working inside ANY electronic device.

Unhinge the back access panel of the printer. It seems repetitive to say this, but this door will be in the BACK of the printer.

Look through the opened back panel and look for paper. Remove any and all paper you find jammed there.

Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way that it did before you opened it.

Find the front or top access panel. This is the panel you would lift to change ink cartridges. Open this access panel. If the carriage that holds the ink cartridges moves, then you forgot to unplug the printer, go back and do that now. Look for paper that may be jammed in this area of the printer.

Remove any paper you find jammed here. When pulling from the front there will be resistance from the paper feeder. Pull slowly or the paper will rip and create a more stressful problem.

Close the front access panel. Make sure that it falls or latches back in place. It should look the same way that it did before you opened it.

Plug the printer's power cord into the wall outlet, and attempt to print again. If the printer prints the job, then you have successfully removed the paper jam.

Paper jam error.
How to correct, fix: Remove the jammed paper. If paper jams frequently occur, check the following:
1. Confirm there is no foreign material inside the machine.
2. Confirm only recommended paper is installed.
3. Confirm paper is installed properly.
4. Confirm the maximum number of sheets in the auto sheet feeder is within the paper limit mark.

How To Reset Canon Printer MP160, MP180, MP460
How to correct, fix: Reseat ink cartridge for Printer (MP160 / MP180 / MP460) Issue: ERROR LED: E, 1, 4

How to correct, fix: Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device Reset the device when it is not functioning properly. If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it. On the operator panel, press and hold the <ON/OFF> button for one second. (The display will go blank.) Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON/OFF> button again. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.
Turn the machine off, and remove the power cord from the electrical outlet. Wait approximately ten minutes then plug in the power cord and turn the machine on. If the problem is not resolved, the machine may require service.

It just may be that the so-called roller cleaning operation may calibrate the timing

Paper jam


Same problem here. Paper Jam, but there is no paper jammed in it the printer?  Know it should say tire jam because I put it in my driveway and drove my truck over it. Problem solved. Stay away from canon printers.
