Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
My Canon MP600 says it has a paper jam but there is no visible paper jam. Can you tell me what to do. Thanks.
I just had the same problem, tried everything and resigned myself to buying a new one.
I was about to throw the thing when I saw the Card backing of an A4 Pad.
I thought I have nothing to lose so forced this through the machine and Bingo. It cured it.

I also had a phantom paper jam in my MP 600. I took an A4 piece of firm cardboard, pushed it through the feed switch at the back so it was half way through and left it sit there while I turned the printer off then on. It spat the cardboard out and all was fine again!

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

I had the same problem with the printer paper jam error message. I did what dolphinfin suggested and it cleared my problem after two hours of trying everything else. Thank you!

Dolphinfin, you are right! My MP600 had the same problem. I noticed two white nylon rollers in the paper feed path were not flush with the rest; I jammed a business card in there, and an obstacle was dislodged. One or two printing attempts later, with a pair of needlenose pliers, I'd pulled out a missing pen cartridge that had fallen in there.
I see nothing wrong with the MP600; It's always been reliable, except when my messy office results in junk falling into the paper feed path.

Dolphinfin, it worked! Of course you need to check all the other possibilities. I image if a pin or paper clip fell in, this "last ditch effort" would have croaked the printer forever! As it is, I am a happy camper. Thanks-- when all else fails, you the man!

I had the same problem, but I opened a Word document, clicked print, and clicked "ok" on the scroll wheel quickly. It went through like a reset or something and then it printed the word doc.

Canon replaced my printer but this is a reocurring problem, I am now on my 3rd printer which also has a paper jam problem. I am still uinable to clear a non existant paper jam.

I've tried the A4 card stock solution. It worked to have the card stock in place and then turn the printer on and off. The card stock fed through (I've fed it through multiple times), but the error message is still there. It appears that there is no solution to a phantom jam- is this correct?
