MP600 paper jam but no paper in printer

I am sure you have heard it before. It says paper jam but there is no paper in the printer. Tried Canon tech support but they were no help. Is there anything I can do before throwing out a 1 and 1/2 year old printer? I refuse to spnd money on a new product.

Reset the printer completely, unplug the machine, unplug the connections. Then reinstall the drivers for it on the computer. 

Reinitialize the printer and print a test page. If it says there is a jam still, look on the in side roller roter. Sometimes paper jams are as little as a small piece of ripped off paper stuck in the roller roter (the sides of the roller that guides the paper in to the printer.) 

If there is nothing cleaning the heads of the printer is the next step. Using rubbing alcohol and a clean qtip rub the heads and let them air dry.

If these don't work then the controller card for the printer is damaged and is inable to read the printer properly and its time to get a new machine.

I suggest a personal laserprinter, they are around 60 dollars now and will last you four or five years with out any new cartridges.

My Canon Pixma MP600 printer has an error coming up of 6A00

Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

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.

Paper jam in canon MP600 Printer

If you cannot see the paper jam, perhaps it is inside the machine:

1) Open the rear cover and inspect the area for any bits of paper that might impede the paper path

2) On the front of the machine, pull out the cassette (paper tray) and inspect the cassette area for any paper jammed inside.

Printer says no paper, but there is. Problem loading?

If not paper jam may has some problem with feed rollers on printer.First make sure that option to feed from cassette is turned on.Check this on maintenance mode.Аs the printer is in warranty better don't touch anything else and call Canon.

Try turn it upside down and shake it - possibly it may fallout. If it is totally jammed, try using something like a crochet hook to fish it up or use a long needle nose plier to grab it and work it gently while pulling until it comes loose.

MP600 Paper Jam

I just had the same problem, tried everything and resigned myself to buying a new one. I was about to throw the thing when I saw the Card backing of an A4 Pad. I thought I have nothing to lose so forced this through the machine and Bingo. It cured it.
