    Same problem. Printer keeps registering paper jam at output slot but on checking thoroughly there is nothing jammed there, or anywhere else. Please help.

    Thanks and regards, Gordon

    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.

Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"


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!

Canon Pixma MP160 shows errors E3 and won't print


Hi there,

Error E3 : Check if the paper has jammed in the machine, reload the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].

Paper Jams :
Cause : Paper jams in the paper output slot/ Auto Sheet Feeder.
Landscape Credit Card sized paper jams inside the machine.

Action : Remove the paper according to the following procedure.
1) 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 the machine 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 eject automatically.

2) Reload the paper into the machine and press [Black] or [Color].
* If you have turned OFF the machine in step , 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.
Important : You cannot load Credit Card sized paper in the landscape orientation.

Hope this helps.
Have a good day.

There's a small white light below the power light that's flashin.


In this case you may have to clear the memory of the printer or set the printer to default.

"Paper Output Slot Jammed" Canon Pixma iP4300


These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.

Good luck!!!
