Canon Mp730 has grinding noise when trying to retrieve paper and then either I get message load paper or clear paper jam error. I have unplugged machine and turn it over to see if there was any objects and I did find a push pin. However, after I removed it. It still has the same error meesage. If it's the roller how do I taken it apart. How do I take it apart without damaging it.
I've resolved this problem. It is NOT an easy fix, but it is most likely that your ASF unit is broken. There are a few gears that drive the paper feed mechanism. One of the gears sits on a cheap plastic spindle that will break over time. I have two of the MP730's and both had the same problem of grinding, and misfeeding.
You can fix the broken spindle, but it will take you at least a few hours, if you know what you are doing. I created a PDF, but this assumes you know how to get to the ASF, which requires complete dissembly of your MP730. To do this, you need to buy a manual. I'll stick my PDF file into the area where you can add "files"
No solutions really. I have the same problem. I have a service manual. It takes a few hours to take it apart. I took out the ASF (automatic sheet feeder) unit out and cleaned it thoroughly, used compressed air to clean any sensors, and to no avail. It did absolutely nothing.
The ASF unit is one of the last things you get to.....so it is a big pain.
If you want the pages on taking it apart, feel free to email me at niedae AT iwon DOT com. Be sure to use tape to associate the screws with the various service parts.
If you figure it out..please post your fix.

Even if a small piece of paper stuck inside the printer you ll get this msg. So what you have to do is if you have a Air blower or vaccum cleaner blow air inside the printer, If any piece of paper is stuck inside it will come out and you won't get that msg again. Try this and sure it will work...!
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.

**, it is not fixed. I followed instructions on Brother web site and was able to find a piece of paper near the printhead, so I removed it. The printer makes a grinding sound when it tries to print and the same paper jam error returns and can't be cleared. I beleive that the printer repair cost will be more expensive than replacing it with a different printer, and it won't be Brother brand. I probably would not be able or have the tools to do any complicated repair job.
This error will generate when the printhead holder cannot move. This is usually due to a paper jam. Clear the jam (or whatever might be obstructing it) and then press "Resume". Do NOT try to move the printhead holder manually.
As for cleaning your printer, here is the owners guide from Canon.
