    I'm having the same problem. I had a paper jam half way where it normally comes out. I pulled out the jammed paper, and since then it only prints blank pages and copies blank pages.

    Same thing here. We had a paper jam and now it no longer prints. This has happened to us once before also where it quit printing. We just kept messing with it and it all of a sudden started printing. I have not been able to get it to work this time however.

    We have the same problem. After reading the best solution from woodmedic out copier starting printed out printed papers. It was about a 1/4" x 4" metal shutter. It was flipped about a couple of times and it started to work. Thank you for the help.

We had the same problem with our mf6550 printing blank pages after we changed the toner cartridge. I called the support desk today and they said it is the shutter. They told me to remove the toner cartridge and then (without a cartridge in) close the door briskly. Then open the door, install the cartridge and again close the door briskly. It worked! He said it may be a permanent fix or it may act up again. He also said I could take it to a service center to have it fixed permanently. The service desk # is 1-800-828-4040. They can tell you where the nearest service center is. Good luck.

I had the same problem. I tried the shutter trick but that did not work so I called Cannon. your copier is under warranty for 3 years. mine is 2 years old. so it was a free fix. the shutter is the problem but it is not the one that is next to toner. it is actually above the paper tray. you need to take 3 sides off to get to it. The reason i was told this happens is because when we change the toner we tend to shut the side compartment too hard. If you call cannon or find a local repair center they will install a newer version of the shutter that will not fail. They had mine fixed by 10:30 am that day. I was in the same boat as all of you. and also bought another cartridge that was $170.00 but I have a spare now :) Hope this helps

We also have this problem with the 1/2"x3" shutter not working. I saw the suggestion about removing it, so I simply held it open and put a piece of tape in there the keep it open. It works for now. My question is, what are the consequences of a laser aperture shutter that never closes?

The best solution is to remove the shutter completely, it will only stick again.

Same problem, simply lift the shutter door with a long, flat tool, then place a small bit of tape on the left corner of the shutter to keep it open. Works great after this fix. Probably best to unplug the printer before inserting long metal tools into it!

There is a 1/2" X 3" metal shutter that you can see when you remove the toner cartridge. On my machine, this door was kind of stuck half way open. I simply got a screwdriver and opened the shutter. The shutter popped open and then fell all the way closed. It now moves freely and I found out that this is the laser aperature. Once you get the shutter operating smothly, your machine will copy again!! Hope this helps.

Try printing a test page. Is it also blank? If so, you should check your ink system (cartridges full, etc.)

Canon Copier MF 6530 stopped printing after a paper jam, everthing else works fine no error code just won't print. I have remove the cartridge shook it and still nothing. Do you have any suggestions?...


I would reset the Photo conductor unit. It will have a Green drum in it. I would make sure it is set in the machine all the way, and that the drum door opens completly. BLANK copies are and indication the paper has NOT touched the drum to recieve an image.

The laser Apeture is sticking.

What i did to mine it Sorta hit it on the paper side and caused the shutter to start working

if you take the toner and use a screwdriver to push down the shutter, it will start working again.

the shutter is sticking.
