The sensor is stuck open or closed. It needs to move back and forth between the sensor. Check the paper path for the sensors.

Had the same issue with the "Paper Jam" light blinking... but no paper jam. Turned the printer off then back on and the light went out.

Always paper jam. need solution


hello, the first thing i would recommend you to do is listen to machine, if you hear the machine clicking, the sound is rythmic, sorry, it does not carry a beat, but the noise is not normal, if you do hear the noise then yes your printer is broken. if you have lower tray, check to see if your jamming from that tray, you can clean both feed rollers for both trays, and try again, if document feed jam, check to see if something tore in the paper guide.

After paper jam was cleared my printer wont feed


There is a small plastic gear that turns the roller, and when a paper jam occurs, oftentimes the gear strips it's teeth, and then the roller won't turn and feed the paper. I had this happen with an HP printer, and took it apart to see what the problem was. Upon finding the stripped gear, I tried to contact HP to get a replacement part and was told that they don't sell parts to anyone except HP authorized dealers, so I found a used printer and cannibalized the part, replacing it myself. Unfortunately, the broken gear problem happens a lot. About the only thing you can do is maybe load less paper, or load just the sheets you need for your print job, but even this doesn't guarantee that a jam won't occur. If you use labels a lot, they can leave glue residue on the rollers, causing a jam. You just have to keep them clean and hope for the best. In my opinion, the clean roller maintenance doesn't always work, and just a small amount of adhesive on the roller(s) can mess you up. They use a lot of plastic parts in printers these days, so they're very susceptible to breaking. Unfortunate, but that's the way it is. I guess that's their way of ensuring the printers won't last an awful long time, making people buy replacement printers sooner than they should have to. Don't think any one printer is necessarily better than the other, these days, so just try not to overload the paper and hope for the best. Sorry I don't have better news, and good luck.

Paper jammed. Tore as I tried to open door and pull it out.


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. 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.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

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.

Hi John,

Some small piece of paper or something stuck in the printer path, remove the paper feed tray and clean it completely , open the printer cover and clean any particles, try cleaning the printer head path also... if nothing is visible try using a torch light and then clean it from inside.... once done with all cleaning switch on the printer, things should be fine now... if not

Please get in touch with canon service center, if the printer is still in warranty, or try to contact local serive center....

Hope this answers your post, please let me know by providing your valuable feedback....

Thanks,
Robosoft.

Paper jam NOT


Try this, remove all paper and bins.
then get alcohol and a clean cloth, clean all rollers and tires. You will get a lot of black dirt and stuff off after cleaning really well try, if it works for a while then yhat was your problem,if it is only temporary then tires will need replacing.
