I have a paper jam -- normally no problem - manual advises jams on right side of machine but not for left -- where the copy comes out -- scrunched up tight -- tried tugging - ripped - and I can't get the other 1/2 out -- when trying to use tweezers the paper rolls back in to copier. There are no leavers or buttons to open to remove. Do you have any suggestions
Also Canon advised take to repair shop -- I'm new to this area -- no Canon in Kitchener/Waterloo - I cannot carry -- do you know of a repairman that will come here from the area.

Re: PC1060 canon copier
In your case you have to remove the fuser
I will try to guide you, most of the models are the same.
1-turn off machine and unplug
2-open the side door, you already know where the paper is it's most likely rolled up on a hot long roller, this is the fuser unit
3-with a phillips scredriver(star) remove 2-4 screws that hold the unit, it will have a plug most likely on the right hand side unplug
4-unit should slide out (unless there is a cover holding it
5- you can now see and work on the unit turning the gear by hand to remove the paper.
6-reverse the steps
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

pl. check the machine base where it stay, it should be plain and firm.
Next check the left side door(test it by pushing inside while making copy). check the fixing assembly and paper path, may be toner clogged on its surface.
If your machine covered more than 200000 A4 copies, check the paper path (guide) at registration sensor and delivery guide at fixing unit.
If the paper jam at paper pickup tray, replace the pickup roller set (2nos.)
Since you have not mentioned the page counter and where paper jam occurs, its difficult to assume more.
This seems to be a common problem for the Canon ir 20 xx series machines. The problem is having machine indicating paper jams on the left hand side of the machine. When you open the left cover you do sometimes find paper stuck on entering the fuser unit. The main problem, and loads of these machines with these problems have been fixed, are the half moon pickup rollers! Clean the pickup rollers or even better, replace them and you will get the machine working 100%!! To confirm this try copying from the machine using the manual feed tray. You will never get a paper jam. This fault is due to incorrect pickup resulting in timing problem and thus getting paper jams! Good luck!
There are several possibilities. After you inspect for the Jam and close the drawer, does the copier come to ready? Have you checked the behind the doors on the right side. If the copier comes to ready and you press the start button does the copier jam right away. If so check the dial on the paper drawer and be sure its set to the right size paper. If its not the copier will jam, right away. It is important with a Canon to check all areas and open both the paper drawer and the right side doors when checking for jam, if the right sequence is not followed in checking for jams the jam may not clear. If still Jammed you might take some canned air open the right side door and blow out the paper feed area, a sensor may be blocked or dusty. If all else fails turn the machine off and un-plug it from the wall, let it set a few minutes and plug it in and try it again.
I'm not sure if you mean the adf or the top half of the copier??? The adf comes off, it's tricky, there are pins that hold it in. As for the top part of the copier, why would you? I did it only once, will never do it again. I think you problem is in the fuser unit. If so, it comes out of the left side by the exit tray. Before I go any further, have you seen any small pieces of thin blackish grey plastic. If so, you need a new fuser unit or fusing film. I would not go any further if that is the problem. Without it to put right back in, you will forget how to put it back in... Good Luck
First, I prayed for help since I was using the copier when it jammed and then I very carefully pulled a small bit of paper on one side being certain not to tear it, then the other side. After about 30 minutes by using a eyeglass screw driver to help the paper come out, it pulled out and looked like an accordion. I put the toner back in and it worked fine. After reading the reviews, we won't be making double sided copies on this machine.
Thanks for your assistance.
