Hi
Here's a few things you can try :-
1. Blow it out with canned air. make sure there are no bits of paper or dust in the paper feed area and in the front access area that could be causing the jam.
2. Verify that the cartridge carriage moves to the service area when the front door is opened (as if to change tanks)
3. Verify that the timing belt, drive belt, gearing and rollers all look normal.
4. Take the network out of play when doing the initial troubleshooting
5. With the computer off, unplug the printer's power cord and USB cord for about 3-5 min
6. Completely uninstall the printer's driver and software. Then reinstall the printer's drivers only.
Retry after each step.
Also if your Canon printer has fax capabilities, and you are getting a false paper jam error, the problem is easy to fix.
Open the scanner lid.
You will see a white strip on the left, under the lid.
There are also two small, white tabs near this strip.
Gently pull on each tab. You should feel a small "click" on the tab that is jammed.
This fixes the problem.
I suspect that when previously scanning something like a book page, one of these tabs got pushed the wrong way.
Hope it will help.Also you can get back to me if you need further assistance.
Thankyou.

I have a Canon Pixma iP1900, it will initially grab the paper but then the paper will just stop but the printer will continue while the paper doesn't move. Then when I cancel the printing it tells me that...


Hello -

From Support information I found on the Canon website, the paper feed rollers of your PIXMA iP1900 may need cleaning.

Source:
https://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/content/faq/?itemid=tcm:14-609974

The feed roller cleaning function allows you to ckean the paper feed roller. perform feed roller cleantng when there are paper particles sticking to the paper feed roller and paper is not fed properly.
The procedure for cleaning the feed rollers is as follows:

1.Prepare the printer
Remove all sheets of paper from the rear tray.
2.Open the printer driver setup window
3.Click Roller Cleaning on the Maintenance tab
The confirmation message appears.
4.Execute paper feed roller cleaning
Make sure that the printer is on and click OK.
Paper feed roller cleaning starts.
5.Complete paper feed roller cleaning
After the rollers have stopped, follow the instruction in the message, load three sheets of plain paper into the rear tray, and click OK.
Paper will be ejected and feed roller cleaning will be completed.

Best wishes.

My canon copier D420 had a paper jam. can't get the copier to work now.


Try checking the paper path, there might be a broken or loose gear in there, a bent wire or stuck debris. If you done this and all seems ok but the error message keeps flashing, try to do a hard reset. That usually clears off error messages. If nothing happens, you might need to call a technician.

I got an error with my canon ip1900 it says "paper jammed" i press Resume but nothings happen it's just repeating the error "paper jammed" what i need to do?


You need to open the printer and remove any piece of paper no matter how small. This can be causeed by even a small sliver of paper or even paper dust. It can also be the paper sensor but thats very uncommon.

Take the paper out fan and restack it. Then open up the printer and clean it as best you can. Put everything back in and close it up and you should be printing.

My canon ip1900 says paper jam, gives 3 orange flashes and 1 green flash .cant find any paper jam?


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.
