Canon MF4350d Laser Printer Paper Jam - can't locate the paper anywhere

Q: Canon MF4350d Laser Printer Paper Jam - can't locate the paper anywhere

I have a REALLY bad paper jam... My printer is MF4350d. The paper jam troubleshooting outlined in the manual did not help. When I opened up the toner area and the back end of the printer, I can't see see the paper at all. It looks like the paper is jammed in area that I don't know how to access to (if I can, aside from taking the whole printer apart).

Does anyone know any way to fix this problem? :/ The paper that got stuck was a label paper. I know for sure it is stuck because the paper did not come out at all. The WHOLE paper got stuck. The label paper half half label peeled off. I am assuming that the reason it might have curled up in the printer is due to the disappearance of that half label? :/

The label paper is a regular size paper with 2 labels divided evenly on the paper.

Is taking the printer apart the only way? (is that even safe/good to do on my own part?)

Please help thank you very much.

Reading up on it, I found that this printer has an auto-duplex feature, which lead me to the question:

How damp is the paper going to be after printing duplex, especially if I print with 50% - 100% coverage?

My initial conjecture is that it wouldn't be wet or curled, as it would be counterproductive to Epson's image to provide a printer with an auto-duplex feature that would drench the paper.

After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it's largely going to depend on the ink itself. According to macworld.com, "pigment inks...are made up of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper’s fibers, which is what happens with dyes." The article further goes on to state that pigment inks are primarily for the purpose of longevity. Well, I'm not particularly concerned about it's longevity but I am interested in whether it's ability to dry faster than dye ink is justifiable for an investment in pigment inks?

A little more research revealed that paper quality is also a major factor (duh). Only issue is, I've already purchased a bunch of cheap 20 lb, 96 bright white paper and don't want to purchase paper separately for this additional printer (when I mean "bunch", I mean that I possess cases of paper in the double digits). Another reason I'm hesitant to make any move towards better paper is that it seems that the higher quality paper is designed to ... Read more

How can the back of the printer be removed to find a paper jam on a Canon Printer MP560.

A:Paper Jam Canon Printer MP560

See if this helps:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/suppo...pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp560#ServiceAndSupport

On that page, part way down, do a search for "paper Jam." That will take you to a new page with search results to choose from. Note: Give it a few moments to show the search results.

From the Search results select the 4th one down "Paper Is Jammed Inside Printer"

That should take you to a graphic.

Hope this helps!

Canon could certainly do a bit of work to improve their website. I was unable to create a direct link to the Graphic page.

HP 2575 Printer Paper Jam Error w/no paper jam
I was trying to print 2 sheets double sided (manually).
Side 1 printed, I reoriented the sheet, pressed OK, then the paper jammed.
I removed the jammed paper, which tore during removal
I tried to reprint the two sheets, and printed side one, then got a papre jam message before the reoriented paper was taken up!
I have tried powering off and disconnecting the printer, and now have a "permanent" paper jam message.
Can anyone tell me where the sensors are on this model? I suspect "chad" (yes, I really am old enough to know the problems chad can cause).
Unfortunately, I'm also partially sighted, so I need pretty clear instructions on where to look forthe chad.

Hi, I'm new here. I joined after searching for my problem and finding that some others had had the same problem but that it was either solved or retired.

I'm on a MacBook running the latest version of Snow Leopard, and I can't print to my four-year-old Canon printer (an MP530) because it says I have a paper jam. The error code it gives is 1300. I've searched everywhere in the printer and opened every door I can possibly find, and I haven't found any paper jammed anywhere - or anything else, either. I'm about ready to dump the printer, but perhaps someone here can help me fix this mystery jam.

When I go to print something, the paper feeds in crooked on the left side, and then I get the jam error. I've felt around in the bottom of the paper feed and I can't find any problem or jammed paper there either. I'm using the paper loader on the back of the printer, not the sheet feeder or anything, and I'm using regular cheap office printer paper.

I read on fixyourownprinter.com about checking the purge unit. Is that something I should try?

Thank you for any help you can give me!

The first thing to do when this happens is unpolug and replug the machine, then clean all the rollers. Your manual should have the instructions for that in it. If you don't have the manual it should be available online at www.canonusa.com

These printers usually have a reset that involves holding down the power button. I'm pressed for time atm so try googling for that. Those might help if you've already followed the above steps

Hi All,

My Canon MP530 printer has 2 paper sources; a flat 'cassette' in the base and a near-vertical sheet feeder at the back. There is a button on the front of the printer which allows you to specify where you'd like the printer to take paper from.

When I put 6"x4" photo paper in the cassette, and press the button to specify the cassette, it jumps to the sheet feeder and prints on A4 from there instead. Removing the A4 from the sheet feeder in an attempt to force the printer to use whatever is in the cassette has no effect - it tells me the sheet feeder is out of paper. If I put A4 in the cassette it detects it and prints just fine.

I have been to the printer driver and made sure that the cassette is selected under 'paper source', but this has not helped.

I am using the "Easy Photoprint" software and this allows you to specify your paper size, type etc. I am guessing that this is not a paper pick-up issue (the printer has seen too little use to have coated the pickup wheels, and it picks up A4 ok). I think it is having difficulty detecting the smaller paper size although it used to print 6x4 before without problems.

Anybody know how to fix this? What is the mechanism by which paper is detected, and how might it have failed?

Any assistance gratefully rceived.

My Pixma MP 760 recently needed new ink. I replaced the cartridges, did the basic service options, printed successfully and shut it down. When I next turned the printer on, I had an error message that stated" Rear Cover The paper is jammed. Clear the paper andpress OK".

I checked and there was a piece of paper in the rollers, and Igently removed it. It was not torn.

However, when I pressed "OK" themachine whirred while a different screen message "Wait for a while" appeared. But the original error message reappeared.

I doubled checked the entire machine, tried the "menu/ scan/copy/scan" and cleared the servicememory, to no avail.

I have tried unplugging it, waiting and restarted but all I get is the same error message and there is no paper jam. Called Canon and they were unable to help and the closest service depot is 600+ miles away..not an option.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I can do to release a locked ink carriage on an HP 7520 printer? I have tried all of the suggestions found on the HP site, where the advice is basically remove all paper, unplug, then re-plug. I have done this twice alongside the running HP Youtube video. The cassette/ink carriage is on the extreme right and cannot physically be moved. No paper is remaining, unless it is under or to the right of the carriage -- a location that I cannot access.

Helping a local relative with her Lexmark 5470 all-in-one ink jet printer (no separate document feeder). All worked fine until recent days until try to print or copy, and the paper will not feed completely through. I was over at her home yesterday troubleshooting it, and found the paper to start to feed from the external paper feeder an inch or two and then stop, though the printer continues to work to print without any paper coming through. No error messages in the software or on the all-in-one itself, and the Lexmark site had very little tech solutions for this printer, not the one we were looking for. As best can determine, it appears the rollers are not feeding the paper, and no paper is jammed as far can see inside the machine, but see no way to really open the all-in-one printer/copier fully to see what is going on.

Hello all,

I have access to a Xerox Phaser 8200 color laser printer and I was trying to find a solution to my printing needs. I need to print a large amount of pictures with this printer and the solution that Xerox has, is for a specific photo paper that is almost a dollar a page ($23.99 for 25 sheets). I need to make about 400 prints and this is TOO much money.

Does anyone know of another paper that can be substituted besides Professional Solid Ink High-Resolution Photo Paper, part #016-1808-00, for the price stated above. They also have another paper, Phaser Glossy Coated Paper, part #016-1936-00 costing $22.99 for 100 sheets. This is a little better but still quite expensive plus its 100lb cardstock.

Can someone please give me a little assistance with this as I am stumped....

Well it looks like you are using a standard wax printer that used be be made by Tektronix before Xerox bought them out. When we had a printer like that we used to use standard recycled copier paper. If I were you I would go to an office supply shop and pickup a few different types to try. Dont get anything too heavy weight or it will jam in the printer. The real expense of these isn't the paper but the color sticks.

I've been learning Publisher2000, and can get something set up, a card, or newsletter, etc. (for practice) but when I try to print it, it doesn't come out right.

For example, I set up a folded card, with looks like it prints on one piece of paper, and is folded to make the card. Since it's on one piece of paper, I left my printer on letter size. It printed 4 pieces of paper (one for each of the 4 sides)

I never got to try this with my old printer, which was a lot simplier, and I think would have printed whatever the computer set up (at least it did with everything else). My current printer is a Lexmark X5150. All in one. It has a lot of settings, besides the print/size setup in Publisher.
