Paper jams are sensed via 'flags' that protrude from slots in the paper path or optical means that check for reflection of some light source to a receiver and, time.

If paper passed a specific check point but fails to reach a second one within a time 'window,' there is a 'paper jam' regardless of whether there is or not.

A flag that has been pushed through the slot and can not rise again or a blocked LED or its companion photocell/transistor, can give a permanent 'paper jam' in error.

If you have ever printed any labels with the unit, you could have some fouling from them that has caused the problem.
It's probably not an electronic problem since the mechanical side is the real weak point.

Gaining access to all parts of the paper path to check for sensor condition could be difficult.

SOURCE: Lexmark P6250 paper Jam

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. Canon MP160
My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others

Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

SOURCE: Cleared paper jam &printer will not reset

I had to turn off the printer & disconnect the power cord. I also had some material that was backed up on hold from the night before that was preventing the current material from being printed & I had to go in & cancel the documents to be printed before the printer would function.

I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

SOURCE: Printer keeps saying there is a paper

Hi there ok 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


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.

SOURCE: Canon MX300 Paper Jam

I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.

Check to make sure both ink cartridges are installed properly. I don't know why it says "paper jam" when the cartridges aren't properly installed, but it does.
