This printer is going berserk on me, and I'm in need of a fix quick.

The printer keeps displaying a "Paper Jam" message when there is no Paper inside. When I first turned it on, it didn't have the message. THen I tried to print and it instantly gave the message, it didn't even suck paper down. Now everytime I turn it on and off it keeps displaying the message.

Thing's i've done:
-Turn it off/unplug
-Update drivers
-Looked inside for small pieces (not thoroughly, just opend the main cover)

So yea, does anyone have a reset button-code thing etc.? I downloaded the manual and it has nothing of the sort.

Thank you in advance.

Hi TelMeDragon, a friend of mine had a Epson that did the same thing, even installing it on a new PC made no differnce so unfortunatley it was scrap. How old is it? Try a complete reinsatall or contact cannon as it should alst a few years under normal use.

I'd say around 9 months old, I read somewhere that Canon charges $10 dollars for a call?

There's the possibility of some shards of paper, from a previous jam, touching the micro-switch. The switch could also be bad. Either way some disassembly would be required to see what's wrong
