Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

The canon pixma MP520. It says there's a paper jam but I can't clear it and the paper wonlt go through. I've got a horrible feeling something fell in and got wedged deep inside. I've used a torch but can't seee any problem at either end. I've turned it upside down but can't hear anything loose. How can I get a look inside to clear this?

The only way to get inside it, is to strip it down (there's screws on the bottom). However, I wouldn't recommend doing this yourself unless you are absolutely sure you can put it back together again. Instead, if possible, lift the access flap (where you normally put the printer cartridges), and see if you can see anything in there (you should be able to roll the print roller yourself from there aswell).

It says "Check printer" error message "6A00".


paper path jam.
Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.
Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.


All I ask is 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.

You can try putting and index card or something stiff like that back thru the paper path to push back whatever is stuck. Look real close with your torch thru the spaces in the white guides that are over the long gray platen roller. Also the gray roller could have scratch marks in the area where the object is jammed. Be careful not to push back the sensor lever that is on the right side behind the white guides.

Paper feeds halfway through and then 'Jams'


you have something stuck down in your paper path, if you feed a hard piece of plastic down the paper path manually and gently you will feel something is there, a very common problem
