By unzip, i believe you mean dismantle the printer. Dismantling the printer can (and most probably will) void your warranty. So please consult either Canon themselves or where you bought the product from.
However if the warranty of your device has already ended then remove the screws of the panels one by one, removing each panel and placing the screws with them so they don't get lost or mixed up. Make your way to the cartridge carriage and try to get them to the center for easy removal. After which inspect the roller or carriage for any small pieces of paper that may be jamming the carriage. Remove if found, otherwise try using canned air to blow at the most probable places where the paper might have gotten stuck.
Proceed to re-assemble the printer and try to see if it works. If it does then great, otherwise please go to your nearest canon certified repair shop.

Epson workforce 520 false paper jam

Maybe not. If a small corner of a piece of paper is covering the sensor, it will still give you a jam condition. Office supply stores have a special cleaning paper. It is sticky on both sides and is meant to remove paper dust from the rollers and clear the paper path in the printer. You can get it online, just google printer cleaning paper.

PIXMA 450...Keep getting paper jam message and I can't see any paper bits anywhere. Trying to open the machine from the back to look inside. Have removed the 4 screws on the back and still can't remove...


The paper jammed can be found in the paper tray, remove the paper at the paper tray and inspect the roller for small pieces of paper jammed.

The paper can be found in the ink cartridge compartment, open the cartridge door and remove the ink cartridges, look for posibble paper jammer. Also once remove, check also the cartridge carrier if does not stuck up or jammed (cause this might me the problem). Turn off your printer and then move the cartridge head using your hand moving to the from right to left side and from left side to right side for 2-3 times. Move it gently.

Paper can be found in the rear access door if it is accessible. Inspect some paper jammed there.

Please let me know if you need more help

Mt HP Photosmart C6380 keeps wadding up the paper and gets jammed. It then says out of paper and when I clear it and press OK, it crinkles the paper to death. Please tell me how to fix this. There is...

Hp printer paper jam 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.

Printer says remove paper standard bin, there is no jam in the printer and it has been reset, but message continues to appear and printer will not function.

I have found over the years that printers usually don't lie. If it is saying there is a problem there usually is. Unfortunately they can't tell you exactly where to look.
I have found the following that have caused printer errors: - a small piece of paper has torn off and got stuck somewhere in the guts of the printer. The printer will register this as a jam and will not work again until this paper has been removed. I have had to tear out the guts of a printer just to find the tiniest piece of paper. -if you print labels that are the self stick kind sometimes a small piece of the label may become stuck to something and register as a jam. - there may be an issue with the paper standard bin or some other part. Make sure it is not overfilled. It cold be a roller issue or some other part that has gone bad.
Your best bet if you can't figure it out is to call for service.

Printer keeps telling me I have a paper jam but theres nothing inside

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

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.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Paper jams

Had this problem, too with HP PSC 1610 AIO, paper would pull in part way and stop, then display would indicate: Paper Jam, Clear Jam and Press OK, but there was no paper in the path at all. Found in HP forums that possibly the problem was a broken off piece that may be called the "x-bias" lever which is on a little spring inside the printer just to the left of the carriage bay on the right side of the device. There are two photos of "broken" and "not broken" at this forum site:
Since HP does not sell the little part to repair it, I phoned HP and got a good "trade-in, trade-up" price for a better device. Hope this helps someone else find the answer to the constant paper jam issue, as I always appreciate the FixYa forum help from everyone else here, too.

You prob have a few small pieces of photo paper jammed in the printer somewhere. Try to take something small that you can push through the printer to make sure there is nothing hidden jamming the printer.
