I have a cannon Pixma Mp495. THis morning some paper that was wrinkled went through it when it was printing. THere was not any paper left in the printer. I did pull a sheet out the top that was stuck...


I believe that you tried to turn the printer off, then on. Did you? If so, and the problem persists, I belive that the jam sensor became damaged.

In a last instance, you can turn off the printer and see if you can turn a little (with your fingers) the roller that pulls the paper.

Hi I have a cannon mp470 and it will not pull paper through to print. It either doesn't catch at all, or it will jam to one side.


Hi

There is something stopping the paper feed process. Try the following
1. Check and make sure nothing is fallen inside the paper tray
2. Remove anything stuck
3. Even if you are not able to see anything stuck tray to use a air blower and blow air in the tray this will remove anything stuck.

I am having cannon pixma mp180. it said check printer and give the number5100


Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock 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



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

Hello there this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock 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.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Printer keeps saying paper jam..there is no paper jam


You can also try using a rubber eraser as the rollers are going. Just take a pencil and lightly rub along the length of the rollers as they are feeding. This should remove the film that clogs the rollers surface.
