Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
In most cases, this is actual Jammed Paper issue, but if you are sure that it's been cleared and there's no visible or suspect jams, I would suggest you to clean all the cartridges gold contacts with a cotton bud dampen with alcohol/acetone/spirit. This problem is very common, and there are several fixes since the causes are not similar, so you need to try several methods. After the cartridges are cleaned, also clean the contacts (gold contacts where cartridges' gold interfaces are in contact with when installed). Now first remove the Print Head unit and dip it in a bowl of hot water so that it'll be cleaned, no matter what, you need to try whatever is possible so that we can find out the cause/s and fix the issue. Now power off the machine, remove all the papers, disconnect the power cord and the usb cable. Open the front access door (you have to first lift up the scanning unit) and the rear (back) access door. Also open the cartridge door. Now look inside the unit and try to clean whatever you think you can, take a blower or an air can and give a strong blow (several times) through the passage and the entire compartment. After everything is cleaned and cleared (and verified) reinstall all the components you've uninstalled/removed. Again Turn back On and see how it goes again. If the problem persists, try resetting the printer (watch the video)
This video is not exactly for the model canon mp600, but this is for all the MP and IP series.
If nothing is helpful, you'd better take it to a service center or call canon for assistance. I don't mean, they will fix it with another solution, but they will ask you what you've tried and how this had happened. The last suspect is the Sensor which is not serviceable by end users, it can only be done from the Canon service center or by an experienced Canon technician.
Note: When I say Sensor, I mean paper jam sensor, inside the printer, which you'll need to completely disassemble the machine to to access. Since there are many models and many different components, it must be noted and is needed to refer the Service manual not the User guide (Service manual is not available for consumers).
For now, I could only good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

You may try one of the following to resolve this printer problem:
1. Try to power off your printer for a few minutes (10-15 mins). Then, power it on again. Check if the error is cleared from your computer.
2. Check the paper feed at the backside of your printer. You might still see a piece of paper or plastic wrap stocked on the wheel. Try to remove it without too much force to avoid further damage.
3. Or you may use an air compressor or air pump to clean the inside of your printer. Just make sure that you unplug your printer first when doing this.
4. If the error is still not resolved, then this might be a sensor problem. You may need to check the warranty date of your printer and have your local or authorized service center repair your printer.
Hope I was able to provide you assistance on this...

First make darn sure there in on small piece of paper still in the unit. Remove the back cover and look carefully. Second thing to do is to unplug the power supply and wait 5 minutes. Plug it back and and let it cycle and see if the warning goes away. If this does not work press the reset button if it has one. If none if available select maintenance and go to the Roller Cleaning section and initiate that. If none of this works then it is time to call Canon.

I will advice you Press and hold the "Resume" button on the printer. Press and hold the "Power" button while holding down "Resume."
Release the "Resume" button. Press "Resume" twice. The indicator light will turn amber followed by green.
Release the "Power" button. Press the "Resume" button four times.
Press the "Power" button. The printer is now reset, and your printer should work fine.

Clearing credit card-sized paper jammed inside the printer
Credit card-sized and 4" x 6" sized paper must be loaded properly. If this media is not loaded properly, it will feed into the printer and will not exit. Credit card-sized paper should only be loaded in the ASF and in portrait orientation. 4" x 6" sized paper can be loaded in the ASF or cassette. But must be loaded portrait orientation.
If credit card-sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the ASF and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.
