    Printer will take paper 1/3 of the way and then stop.  I have tried to see if there is anything jamming the printer and I don't see anything.

    I have the same problem with my Canon iP4300. I get a message that paper is jammed at output slot. I tried to feed plastic sheet to outlet after turning printer on and off as was suggested but the wheels don't seem to release to allow the sheet to go into printer.

    I love my printer, but it didn't even last until the first ink cartridges were used. I get the three blinking orange lights, which indicates a paper jam, but there is no paper jam. When I turn it on, it feeds a sheet of paper just fine, but when I try and print, nothing happens. Help!

After assisting the card through the printer I opened the cover for another inspection, the card had dislodged a twist-tie which had somehow fallen into the printer

Getting message that I have a paper jam but there isn't on to be fpund


Try checking the printer for foreign objects that might be interfering with the paper path. Tilt the printer sideways and try shaking it a bit. After that, try printing. If the issue persists, clean the rollers of the printer.

My printer says I have paper jam, please remove. but i have only been able to remove partial pieces. How do I get at the rest left in a spot I can not reach


Here's a link from which you should be able to download the online manual with a troubleshooting section that includes specific instructions on clearing a paper jam. See also this page, as I have no great confidence in the links I get from canon, their website is so backwards. If you choose the service and support option, then ask "how do I clear a paper jam" you'll see the instructions they offer.
Issue: Paper is jammed inside the printer
Solution: Remove foreign object from paper feed area (MP130)

Remove foreign object from paper feed path If error message
  • [PLEASE CLEAR PAPER JAM AND PRESS [OK]] or
  • [CHECK PRINTER]
is displayed, follow this procedure to remove paper or obstructions from the machine. Clearing Jams In The Paper Output Tray:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the Paper Output Tray.

  2. Press .

  3. If you cannot see any jammed paper in the Paper Output Tray, remove it from the machine's interior.
    1. Press to power off the machine.
    2. Lift up the Scan Unit until it locks into place.
    3. Open the Paper Output Tray.
    4. Look in the print area for an obstruction (such as a paper clip, staple, tape, etc.) and then remove it.

  4. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.
Clearing Jams From The Auto Sheet Feeder:
  1. Gently pull out any jammed paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder.

  2. Press .

  3. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.

Sorry I can't offer you much more, but just try to get all the bits out. Sometimes a pointy tool on a vacuum will help. Otherwise, maybe you can wrap and tape a post-it note around a popsicle stick or something to reach the paper and try to coax it out, or maybe a bit of folded tape on the end of a ruler or something like that. Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

The paper keeps jamming, I cant see anything in the way. any help is appreciated.


If paper doesn't feed correctly when printing, remove it and fan the edges of the paper to separate the sheets. Reload the paper against the right side and slide the edge guide against it. Do not load too many sheets at once.
If paper has jammed: 1. Press x Start to eject the jammed paper. 2. If paper is still jammed, gently pull it out from the output tray or sheet feeder. If paper is stuck inside, press the P On button to turn off the printer. Then lift the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the printer back on.
If documents don't feed correctly in the Automatic Document Feeder, make sure the corners of the paper are not bent, folded, or curled up. Do not load more than 10 sheets of legal-size paper at a time. If documents have jammed: 1. Open the ADF cover and pull any paper out to the left. Caution: Do not try to remove the paper without opening the ADF cover first, or you could damage the mechanism. 2. Select Yes or press OK to clear any messages on the display screen. 3. Reload the paper.

Paper jammed


Hi there,
Paper Jams

Cause 1 : Paper jams in the paper output slot/Auto Sheet Feeder.
Action : Remove the paper according to the following procedure.
a) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the paper output slot, whichever is easier.
* If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, open the Scanning Unit and remove it. Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine at this time. After removing the paper, close the Scanning Unit, turn OFF and turn it back ON.
* If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine OFF and turn it back ON. The paper will be ejected automatically.
b) Reload the paper into the machine and press [OK].
* If you have turned OFF the machine in step a), you will need to retry printing, because this operation cancels any print jobs in progress.
If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the machine, or if the paper jam error continues after removing the paper, contact a Canon service representative.

Cause 2 : Landscape Credit Card-size Paper Jams inside the Machine.
Action : You cannot load Credit Card-size paper in the landscape orientation.
If <PAPER JAMMED> or <E3> is displayed on the LCD/LED, remove the paper following the procedure below:
a) Load Credit Card-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder one sheet at a time.
Do not load it in the landscape orientation.
b) Press [ON/OFF] on the machine to turn OFF the power.
c) Press [ON/OFF] again on the machine to turn ON the power.
The paper is fed and the jammed paper is ejected accordingly.
If you cannot remove the jammed paper or the error still persists, contact a Canon service representative.

Hope this helps
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

LCD Error message: Paper output slot. Thye paper is jammed. clear the paper and press OK.


A jam sensor may be stuck or have something stuck on it, causing the machine to think it is jammed. These sensors are normally located where the paper feeds into the printer, and where the paper exits the printer. Try forcing a sheet of paper through the machine in the direction paper normally. feeds. This may free up the jam sensors.
