Solution for error code 005-196


This is essentially a paper size mismatch which causes a paper jam. Technically you submitted a print job for a paper size that did not match the paper which was fed into the printer. Example, your document is legal size but the printer pulled a letter-size paper. As it passes through internal sensors along the paper feed path, the paper size doesn't match the document size (created on the PC) and so the printer stops with the paper in its path posting the error and causing you to have to remove the paper from the jam area. The resolution is either provide the correct size paper based on the document settings in the PC application (may need to be fed in the printer's manual paper tray) or change the document size within the PC application to match the size of the paper being fed into the printer. (Paper size can also be modified in the printer settings on the PC.)

Constant Paper Jam


check the wheels that pick it from the tray.
If they feel smooth, try to put some tape on them and rip it back off.
This cleans the wheels. Also try a new pack of paper and check if it\'s set to plain paper and not to heavier or coated paper

Canon Inkjet, Not Printing?


Hi Rosa,
There was a paper jam and you cleared the jam, however you missed out to do one other thing. Cleaning the Rollers.

If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.

You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1.Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

2.Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

3.Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.

(1) Press the g0081065_tcm14-774017.jpg (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

4.Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.


This should fix the issue

How do i set it to print 11x17. It jams everytime and will not print to that size


Hello :-)
Please open the paper supply tray you wish to use. At the very front of the tray, to the right, you will see a blue dial. This dial is used to tell the copier what size paper it can expect to be fed. You can put many sizes of paper in the tray, but the blue dial MUST match the size that truly is in the tray. If ,for example, the blue dial is set at "LETTER" but the paper in the tray is 11x17, the copier will look at the dial setting and expect the paper to have passed its paper path sensors in a certain amount of time. So if the dial says 8.5x11 and the actual sheet of paper fed just keeps on moving by the sensors (11x17) the copier freaks and treats it as a paper jam assuming it has fed multiple sheets. Happy New Year to you and yours! :-)

I keep getting a paper jam error with my Optra S 1855 printer, but there is no paper jam. This error interchanges with a message asking me to Change the paer in tray 1 to letter size, but it is already...


Open the tray and make sure the green paper lever is set to letter mark, both at the bottom of the paper and the one on the side. And yes, if you haven't used it for 3 years, you should clean the dust that settled inside your printer over time.

Paper jam/no paper fed


make sure the photo paper is in glossy side face down,
set the paper type to photo.

If it keeps jamming it's because the paper feed is probably dirty and not taking the paper properly

Papr Jams and wrong size report


We just solved this problem with our c900.
Basically, a paper jam has caused some probs with the sensors and rollers. After playing with the thing for about 4 hours, i ran some really thick photo paper through it and after a couple of trys where it just screwed up in the back, it then fed through and printed correctly. After that it was fine with all paper types, no more messages, and no more paper getting screwed up in the back. Ian
