Hi,

  1. Remove all of the paper from the paper tray and slide the paper guides all the way to the side. Examine the paper for any crumpled or torn pieces, then reload the tray. Make sure the guides fit snugly against the sides of the paper. If the guides are too loose, the paper can feed into the iP1600 skewed and cause a paper jam. If the guides are too tight it can cause the printer to grab more than one piece of paper.
  2. Open the front of the printer and wait for the print cartridges to move to the center. Do not move the cartridges by hand--this could damage the printer and void your warranty.
  3. Pull the cartridges slightly toward you and lift them free of the printer. Set the cartridges aside.
  4. Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any ink residue and paper dust. The Pixma iP1600 has a tendency to accumulate a lot of paper dust, especially during periods of heavy use. Cleaning the printer periodically is the best way to avoid problems.
  5. Dip a cotton swab in warm water and carefully clean the bottom of each print cartridge. The print cartridges in the iP1600 printer also tend to accumulate paper dust. In addition the print nozzles can become clogged with ink residue, resulting in poor print quality and shortening the life of the cartridges. Continue wiping the cartridges until all ink residue and paper dust have been removed.
Good Luck!

Always paper jam error on my cannon 3530


Check for a paper fragment at either end inside the printer chamber or underneath the paper feed roller cover plates. Anything that holds a paper feed sensor arm open will give you paper feed errors, and they can be remarkably small.

How to fix paper alignment


There is not enough information to really answer the question. However, if the paper is not "feeding" check for jams of other paper inside the printer.

The "FEEDER" part where you put the paper in usually has "SLIDEABLE" guides to keep the paper feeding correctly

Canon ip1600 jams paper when operated.why?.


You got a small shred of paper stuck in the paper track somewhere.

You could try feeding a sheet of light card or heavy gauge paper through which may clear it for you if that doesn't work you're going to have to get into it a check out all the rollers, right up to the edges, of the paper track. Don't forget to disconnect from the power source before you take any covers off.

Cannon printer feed paper


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
