    Hi gordonthe1
    The fix you posted worked for me too, but only if I use a heavyweight card.
    I also get a lot of screeching......but still, it's a start.
    Mine is a Pixma ip5000, thanks for the tip.

    I have the same problem on my ip5000. I am also getting indicator that there is no paper in the input tray when there is.

    I tried the suggested solution (although the printer doesn't eject the paper on its own) and it helped, but I am printing 500 4X6 sheets and it is taking forever since the fix seems to help for only 10-20 sheets on average. Then slowly these two problems increase in frequency after another 10-20 to the point where I have to repeat the solution.

    I am also trying cleaning the two rollers at the bottom right of the input feeder. It seems to be only temporarily helpful as well.

    Any other ideas? Any other printers that might be able to handle this kind of printing better?

Hi guys, I eventually found a solution to the problem for my printer. With the top cover open, I pushed a sheet of 120 micron thickness A4 clear plastic binding cover through the exit tray as far as it would go to rest against the bottom row of rollers. I switched the printer off then back on again and as the rollers lifted momentarily, I pushed the sheet of plastic as far up through the machine as I could before the rollers went down again - it went in a fair distance. The printer then ejected the plastic sheet. I then put the plastic sheet into the paper tray and tried to print a blank document page. The plastic fed through cleanly and my printer has been working since without any error messages. I hope this works for you.

Same problem with my Canon Pixma MP 480 - printer is jammed error message with nothing visible jammed in the printer. Turning on/off would not help.
I used the solution by gordonthe1, but instead of using a plastic sheet I pushed a very thick & stiff paper sheet up the rear. I had a very difficult time getting the sheet past the 2nd set of rollers - the rollers would lift for a split second each time I turned the printer ON, but even then it took a violent shove on the third try to finally get the paper through. Then, I (very roughly) yanked the paper up through the top of the printer before letting the printer eject it again. I also finished a roller cleaning, which I could not do before because of the incredibly frustrating non-existent paper jam. Now the Printer seems to be working perfectly & I'm thrilled that I won't be tossing my printer.

A shot term tip is to feed a piece of paper the wrong way through the machine, turning the rollers. when you shut the lid the paper comes out. but you have to do this every time, not funny.

My Canon Pixma MP600R insists that paper is jamed in machine, despite the fact that jam has been cleared and paper is being ejected when machine is switched on


The simplest thing would be to try unplugging the printer from the power source. Let it rest for 5 - 10 minutes then plug back in to the power supply and see if that resolves the problem.

If not you are going to need to do a thorugh inspection to verify that all paper remnants have been removed.

The following is for the MP600:

Issue: ERROR LCD: The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press [OK].

  3. Gently pull the jammed paper out.

  4. If the paper tears and a piece of that remains inside the printer, open the scanning unit (printer cover) and remove the paper from inside the printer.

    Note:
    Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.


  5. Turn on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    (If the jammed paper remains in the printer, the paper may be automatically ejected.)

Clearing credit card-sized paper jammed inside the printer
Credit card-sized and 4" x 6" sized paper must be loaded properly. If this media is not loaded properly, it will feed into the printer and will not exit. Credit card-sized paper should only be loaded in the ASF and in portrait orientation. 4" x 6" sized paper can be loaded in the ASF or cassette. But must be loaded portrait orientation.
If credit card-sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the ASF and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.

  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Load the same paper type that is jammed inside the printer in portrait orientation.

    05sj00147_01.jpg

  3. Power on the printer.
    The paper stock in the ASF will automatically feed the jammed paper from the printer.

  4. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.

If 4" x 6" sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the cassette and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Open the rear cover.

  3. Fold in four a piece of letter-sized plain paper.

  4. Push in the folded paper until it hits the jammed paper.

    05sj00147_02.jpg

  5. If the jammed paper is visible from inside the printer area, pull it out and proceed to step 7.

  6. If the jammed paper cannot be pulled out, push in the folder paper from the rear so the jammed paper is in between the feed rollers.

  7. Pull out the folded paper and close the rear cover.

  8. Power on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    The jammed paper should automatically eject.

  9. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.

Cannot printer... it keeps giving me out of paper error, even when there's paper in the tray.


Sir,

Try these steps it may be solve your problem...

Step 1. Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.

Step 2. Turn off the printer.

Step 3. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.

Step 4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.

Step 5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.

Step 6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

Step 7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.

Step 8. Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.

Step 9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

Thanks
Good Luck
