You have one of the paper path sensors stuck, or broken. I'm afraid this is a repair center issue, unless you are familiar with the disassembling of the unit. Good luck.

Be blessed.

Cannon laser fax 1060 P "check paper size"


Hi Margaret
Ok,the problem normaly with this model is in the feeding of the paper.For some or other reason the paper is moving to slow threw the machine and then the machine detect it as a longer size paper.

  • Clean the rollers that pick the paper up and clean also the sepatation rubbers under neath the paper pick up rollers.This rubbers is called the separation pads.
  • To clean this rollers,remove the cartridge and you will see the feed roller at the back.
I think what happened with the move the machine might collected dust and now the rollers are slipping.

Thanks for you support

Paper rolling up with the thermal film


The best thing you can do, short of launching the thing into inter-galactic travel, is to clean all of the plastic parts of the machine with an anti-static cleaner. Particularly, the roller that feeds the paper and the carbon roll. Remove all paper and carbon film and unplug the machine. Clean inside the paper housing and the feed rollers before turning it back on. It sounds like a build up of static electricity, a common problem on such thermal based fax machines. Remember, the paper has the propensity to curl because it is on a roll, so any extra help it gets will send it curling like mad. Good Luck.

Relax ti mal- the rollers are not picking up the paper because they are dirty or worn out.

Try this clean the rollers with alcohol and try, are the rollers smooth or do they have a rough feel? if smooth replace and it should be good as new.

Good luck

Paper Jam message


There are a couple of sensor flags in side the machine and also the document feeder area. Little black levers that flip and trip a sensor. Make sure they are all moving freely. There is one or two in the doc feed area. One inside the paper feed area. One or two in the ribbon area.
