Took a can of Blow Off (dust remover) and blew through paper track, and used a paper towel soaked in Isotope Alcohol and rubbed the tracking rails..
Everything seems to work fine for now except the canister paper holding is not feeding properly and the paper is getting jammed when you try to use it. This is not that important as long as paper can be fed the normal way and it doesn't jam..

Printer printing blank. New ink cartridges.Clean and Deep Clean utilities done.

Hello, first unplug the the printer and take out the cartridges, first dab them on a wet paper towel until the ink start flowing, then take a q-tip dipped in alcohol and where u insert the cartridges, clean the print heads, replace the cartridges and power up. If that doesn't help it you have bad cartridges.

How to Fix Canon MP600 Paper Jam With no paper jammed?

I can understand your frustration, but if you promise to clean up your language, I will try to help you. :-)

It is possible that your step motor guide is dirty and as a result it thinks that the carriage is not moving properly. The step motor guide is a film about 4 mm wide that is stretched along the course of the carriage. You should be able to see it by using a flashlight with the cover raised exposing the ink carriage. It will be at the back of the carriage about level with the top of the ink cartridges.

Turn off your printer. Take some Q-tips and some alcohol (isopropyl). Soak one end of the Q-tip in alcohol and then gently rub along the top of the film. Change surfaces of the Q-tip as it collects up ink and dirt. Keep doing this until the Q-tip can pass along the film and remain clean. Repeat this for the underside of the film. Once this is clean and dry, move your carriage manually to the left and clean the area where the carriage sat.

If this doesn't work, then there might be a sliver of paper caught in the microswitch where the paper exits. There is also a remote chance that the connection to the switch is defective, but I would suspect the film first. Hope this helps.

Clean the pick up rollers with alcohol. They need to be really grippy.
If it's folding the corner of paper I expect there is a bit of torn paper stuck in it.

Try cleaning the paer feed roller with a detrgent based industrial cleaner/ not an alcohol based one as this will dry out the roller and make your problem worse. If you are in a humid environmentyou may need to replace the paper in the paper tray and "fan" it prior to use, or it could be the paper feed clutch itself, which would be more complicated to remove clean and lube.

Heads will not clean, done everything Epson Stylus Pro4800 Manual says it has cost me a fortune in ink and waste tank. Is there an easy way to clean heads?

Usually the simple way to clean old ink from heads is to get a container of alcohol from the drug store and either using a Q-tip or paper towel soaked - wipe the print surface of the head to remove the old ink, then run the head clean utility once after. If you cannot reach the head surface, move the print head to change ink position, unplug the printer and fold and lay the paper towel soaked in alcohol under the head and manually move the head back and forth by hand to clean it. You may need several sheets of towel and alcohol to do this. Fold the paper thick enough so it will touch the head surface to clean.

  2. Gently open the covers.
  3. Remove any paper that may be jammed. Check for obstructions in the DADF area including jammed originals, paper fragments, paper clips or staples.


  4. Check for obstructions in the DADF paper sensor area, small paper fragments, paper clips or staples may get caught there.

  7. Raise the DADF, remove all the originals, and then lower the DADF.
  8. Make sure your originals are not torn, wrinkled, or folded. Load your originals again following the instructions on the Touch Screen.

    NOTE: Originals that have already been scanned will automatically be skipped, and scanning will resume from the previous document sheet.

  9. Torn, wrinkled, or folded originals may cause paper jams and damage. Place the originals directly on the Document Glass to make new originals that can be scanned using the DADF.

Game color

The pinned connector in the console is dirty, as are the contacts on the games. Pins or tabs are made of brass, which corrodes over time. liberal cleaning is necessary to get them in good shape again. Rubbing alcohol and a q tip works pretty well at cleaning them. Dip one end of a q tip into the alcohol, and rub away on the contacts on the game cartridge. You'll see quite a bit of black crud develop on the q tip. Then, wipe it down with dry end. Grab another q tip and repeat. Then do it again. However many times are necessary for the tabs to be shiny, and the q tips to come up clean. THEN you take a dry q tip and do your best to polish up the tabs with it, rubbing in an up and down motion. You'll find that even more crud comes off after a rigorous polishing. As for the pinned connector in the console, you'll need a clean toothbrush dipped in alcohol, and scrub the daylights out of it! Its going to be really hard to judge whether or not the connector in the console is clean, so you may want to get a flashlight and a magnifying glass to inspect the tabs. Take a business card and fold it in half (paper works to if folded three times) and while the connector is still wet with alcohol, insert it in between the connectors and try to get the excess alcohol out while gently rubbing the pins. pieces of paper can get caught in there, so beware, you'll probably have to blow the lil pieces out, or let your toothbrush dry, and use that to get them out. This is a very tedious task. If the problem persists, you'll need to get an snes screwdriver and new connector (all over ebay), and just replace the connector. Be sure to clean your games regularly, AND ONLY USE ALCOHOL and cotton tipped q tips. Anything else will remove too much of the brass tabs, and you will ruin your games
**while I don't recommend this, it is possible to take a very fine grain sandpaper, say 1500-2000grit, and use that to sand the connector in the console, It will remove material, but will make it work again in most cases. But be warned, once it gets dirty again after such a procedure, the connector will need to be replaced, as it will most likely be damaged beyond repair**

Paper jammed

I had exactly the same problem, printer virtually new, printed great for a couple of weeks, then today refused to take paper with E3 flashing. No apparent blockage - all looked clean, tried all the utilities, roller cleaning and plate cleaning, but wouldn't take paper!
Solved it by moving the paper size guide all the way to the left, then folding the top 20mm of a sheet of A4 over and loading it so fold is at the top facing you. This acts as a catcher for anything stuck in the printer. Hold the paper slightly crooked with the left side slightly further into the printer and press the copy button (with nothing in the scanner!). It should draw the paper in now (with some persuasion) and think it is printing (it's blank,of course). Check as the top of the sheet goes in that the fold is still tight and doesn't open up as it feeds in. Lo and behold, mine brought out a 5p piece - printer now prints perfectly!
