Paper is jammed inside printer
Posted by Anonymous on

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. Canon MP160
My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

Please follow these steps to set your printer to defaults:
1. Please make sure your printer is set in Copy Mode.
2. Press the "setup" button, you will find "Maintenance" displayed.
3. Use your arrow keys to locate "Set Defaults" and press "OK".
4. Press the arrow key to find "Use Factory" and press "OK"
This process would reset your printer to Factory defaults.

There is a sensor in all printers that report this error. It may be electrical (electric eye) or mechanical (roller connected to a sensitive switch (also electric)).
I am not intimately familiar with the innards of all printers currently in use, including yours. Still, I offer this advice.
Your printer is "jammed" because something is saying so. (What?) The roller and/or switch may be stuck in the 'jammed' position or the electric "eye" may be dirty or possibly there could be a short somewhere (I doubt it, but it is a possibility) Now think about this, the switch is very sensitive, it must be to detect the thickness of one sheet of paper. You will not see a lot of movement if it is mechanical.
Error messages are frequently generated by sensors (switchs of some kind) In your case, the sensor is closed (like turning on a light in the living room) and telling you the light is on in the living room, so to say.
Even though you have inspected the device closely, you must re-examine and find the sensor and clear it.
I hope this information helps you.
There will likely be other question catchers pick up your question and give you other advice. Try all the options you receive until you resolve the error.

I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.
