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: canon mp180 paper jammed

I finally fixed the problem by running two sheets of heavy card stock through at the same time. With the machine off, I positioned the two sheets in the feeder so that they would be pulled in when the printer was turned on. When I turned on the printer, it drew the two sheets through and I guess this reset the paper sensor. I previously found that only one sheet at a time did't work.
I found this solution posted by JsamJr answering another question but it worked for me. pushing the card in and then removing it and pressing ok worked

SOURCE: my canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?

give this a try

  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.

SOURCE: paper won't feed through canon printer. no paper jam apparent -

Hello there gave it a go 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.

Mp280 printer indicating p /3


P03 is a mechanical jam (carriage, paper jam, paper pickup etc).

Open everything you can and look for foreign objects or jammed paper inside the printer.

If you cannot see anything then it may be a sensor error. You could always try cleaning the sensors if you were feeling brave.

Printer is in alarm mode stating a paper jam when there isn't one?????


Even though u cant see a jam there there is exactly a jam inside
U believe it or not thats why paper jam
Look for the paper detection sensor below the carriage
use ur common sense
I cant say exactly it is detect sensor it may be some other sensor related to gear wheel set
but most of the cases paper jam occurs due to malfunction of paper detect sensor
If u find it use a thin tool to see it is working properly
otherwise give it to someone know how to repair & pay a reasonable price
thx

This error maybe cause of two reasons:

  2. Paper jam.Turn the machine off and on.Look through the paper output tray for any stuck papers and gently pull them out.
Hope this helps.Thanks!
