I had the same problem...after trying everything suggested on the forum. I had enough and decided to disassemble the printer. I removed the CAD and disconnected the wires and it solved the problem. No more paper jam error code on the screen. This probably includes that the CAD won't work anymore but I never used this anyway. So now I can print and scan like I used to.

good luck

    This is happening to me too, it just started this week. I've blown air all through it, pushed card-stock through paper paths where paper or dust chunks might have been getting stuck up, still nothing. Any other suggestions? Where are the sensors, can I clean them directly? Can I disable the paper jam sensor?

Paper jam I've cleaned sprayed,etc must be something I can't see w/o going deeper. How do I remove cover to get to paper rollers in MX340


Removing the covers is not the answer. Most jams on rear feed printers/faxes are due to some object falling in the sheet feeder. When you pull the paper back out (Very slowly) of the sheet feeder after it has jammed , you will see a nick in the paper. This is because the paper is hitting something and cant get past it. put the paper back in the sheet feeder and the nick will indicate where the object is. Find a large paper clip and unwind it and bend the top of it to 90 degrees. use this to hook the object out and then tip the printer upside down and watch it fall out. Good luck

Please help with cannon PIXMA MP150 printer problem, when trying to print, It reads that paper is jammed but I've checked several times and no paper is jammed. Printer will not print due to this...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Paper jam means their may be small bit paper jam in side
, actually there are some "micro sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper inside those sensors, thus tripping the sensor and paper jammed keeps coming up.
To solve this first of all Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder
, If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon Printers service provider.

I hope this solution helps you
Thank you for using FixYa!

My printer keeps saying that there is a paper jam but I cannot find one


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

    Canon mp470 keeps telling me there is a paper jam


    Hello my friend,first thing we are going to check is if its a jam inside from a foreign object.So
    1. Power the printer off.

    2. Open the paper support and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the auto sheet feeder.
    3. Open the scanning unit (printer cover) and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the printer.
    4. Close the scanning unit (printer cover).
    5. Power the printer on and confirm that the printer operates normally.
    But in this procedure be very careful and don't push hard anything!
