Experience is that if it says there is a paper jam there is something in there that you might not be able to see. If you have a thick piece of card stock see if you can feed that through to get a stuck piece out.
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.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: Canon MX300 Paper Jam

I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.

The screen just show "paper


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.

My mx 300 keeps saying paper jam. i cant find any paper in it , iv tried turning it on n off. iv tried uninstall ..


Hello thanks for using fixya
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
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 service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

Canon Pixma MX300 printer had a paper jam. I took out the paper, and it was all there with no missing parts. It continues to say there is a paper jam - there appears to be no reason for the jam. I...


Try checking that a foreign object is in the paper feed rollers- do this by inserting a thin piece of plastic about 2 cm wide through the rollers from the paper exit side. Plastic like that from a shirt box (about 2cm wide by 20 cm long and 1 mm thick works well. I have solved this problem many times with my mx300 and it clears out objects which have droppped into the paper feed, such as Pens , yes pens. and paper clips etc which are otherwise hard to detect on this printer.

Forcing a piece of cardstock as far into the feed as I could, then removing it fixed this problem for me.

Hopefully it will work for you!

Paper jam


Check the inside of the machine, and try unplugging the power cord for ten minutes first.
