SOURCE: Canon MX310 paper jam

"Gclanton" had it right.
I had the same problem today. I ended up taking a piece of paper and from the back side started lightly forcing the paper in the back slot. I had the top cover open where you replace the ink cartridges. Towards the back you can see the paper start coming into the printer next to some rollers. On mine there was a small black switch about an inch from the right in the middle of the plastic piece above the rollers. Once I started pushing this paper in I could see this switch was stuck in the down position. After several minutes of pushing the paper in and out the switch moved up and out of the paper path. I then pulled out the paper and hit the ok button and it came on line. This may work better with a piece of card stock.
That switch is the issue.  I ended up finding an object lodged against the switch.  Needed a flashlight, plastic giftcard and a tweezers to get it out.  Works great now.

SOURCE: Paper jam canon mx850. I cant find the paper.

The error indicates a black ink stick was jammed. You have to clear the ISC (ink stick count) error. Turn off the printer. Turn on the printer. As soon as you see XEROX start moving across the display hold down the back and help buttons until you see "beginning service mode" on the display. Release the buttons, it will now come up in the service mode. Scroll down to the function menu, hit ok, scoll to clear isc faault, hit ok. Hit the back button to get back to the first menu then exit diagnostics, hit ok when it asks if you want to restart in customer mode.
If you ever buy any Xerox ink and you get a cracked ink stick call Xerox cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif800-835-6100cb_transparent_r.gif and they will replace it free of charge. Otherwise you risk this problem.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Canon MP140 paper jam error with no paper jam

try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

I hope this tip can help.

Try turning the printer on, then unplugging it to turn it off. While off, push the carriage all the way to the right. Plug back in and turn on.

If this does not fix the problem, check the location tape inside the printer. This is supposed to be a clear strip of plastic that spans the length of the printer on the inside with a bunch of little line on it. You will probably need a flashlight to see it clearly. Sometimes this strip gets dirty and the carriage gets "lost". If the plastic strip is really dark and you cannot make out individual lines, this may be the case.

To clean the strip, use a lint free cloth and clean water ONLY (distilled if you have it). Cleaning chemicals will often wipe off the location tick marks with any ink on there. Wet the cloth with water and run GENTLY it back and forth along the clear plastic ribbon. You should see the cloth discolor with the ink. Move the carriage so you can clean the whole strip to the point of being able to clearly see individual tick marks at regularly spaced intervals (about .5mm).

If this does not take care of the problem, the issue may be in the carriage motor and, depending on how much the printer cost you, it may be more cost effective to replace.

Unplug your printer. Then wait 40 seconds and plug it back in. Check if you have enough ink in your cartridges.
If all else fails replace ink cartridges.
They make paper that has alcohol on them and you can run it through your printer to clean those sensors. Just hit Cltrl and P at the same time.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.

Here are few instructions on how to clear the paper jam on your printer.


How to Clear a Paper Jam on an HP Inkjet Printer 1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer before you begin. With the power disconnected, you will protect yourself from being shocked. This is an important step when you are fixing any type of electronic device.
2. Move your printer so that you'll have access the back panel. Unhinge the back access panel of the printer.
3. Look for paper through the opened back panel. Remove any paper you find jammed.
4. Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way it did before you opened it.
5. Open the front or top access panel. This is the panel you use to access ink cartridges. If the carriage that holds the ink cartridges moves, then you forgot to unplug the printer. Go back and do that now. Look for paper that may be jammed in this area of the printer.
6. Remove any paper you find jammed here. There will be resistance from the paper feeder, so pull slowly or the paper will rip and create a more serious problem.
7. Close the front access panel. Make sure that it latches back into place.
8. Plug the printer in and attempt to print again. If you can print successfully, you have removed the paper jam.

Hope this helps.

Jammed paper -


try useing a can of air. lift te cover and blow it with the air. Then there is two fork prong in the upper cover, Its off white/clear. Hold that in and turn off then back on the machine. This will cause the printer head to move into visable range. Use the can of air and blow in the area the print head hides in. This should get it unless its glued in place by the ink. Try also blowing uder the head as it moves by.
