Shefin :
Hello! Thank you for your question. I am Shefin and I look forward to helping you with your issue today.
Shefin :
Please let me know when you are ready.
JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Ready.

Shefin :

Have you checked thoroughly, even for small bits of paper?

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Yes.

Shefin :

Please turn off the printer, unplug all its cables and wait for two minutes.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

ok, done.

Shefin :

Then, plug in the cables and restart it.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Ok.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

done

Shefin :

Still getting the error?

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

I will try and print something to see if there is still the error.

Shefin :

Okay.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

It started printing, the paper moved down a little, then it stopped saying: REMOVE PAPER JAM. Exactly as before. But there is no paper jam.

Shefin :

If so, there must be a paper jam.

Shefin :

Please wait a minute.

Shefin :

Are you sure that the paper output tray is closed?

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

I have looked every where and there is no paper jam, not even a tiny piece! I have a feeling the thing that rolls the papers has a problem.

Shefin :

Are you sure that the paper output tray is closed?

Shefin :

Sorry, opened?

Shefin :

Are you sure that the paper output tray is opened?

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

It is open. Unless you mean something else?

Shefin :

The error may occur because of two reasons.

Shefin :

Either Output tray is open, or a paper jam.

Shefin :

Are you sure that there is no foreign objects inside?

Shefin :

Check again that if there is any issue with the roller.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Sorry, you are not being very helpful. I wouldn't be looking for your assistance if I had not checked my printer out. It has not worked for 10 days! Check the internet - lots of the same complaints about this particular printer.

Shefin :

Please be informed that, if anything happens to the roller, that feeds the printer, you will get the same error.

Shefin :

Or any foreign objects inside the roller.

Shefin :

Have you checked the paper roller too?

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

How am I supposed to know if there is an issue with the roller? It starts making the printing noise, then sudden it stops, saying there is paper jam.

Shefin :

We will try cleaning the rollers.

Shefin :

Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

Shefin :

Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

Shefin :

Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.

Shefin :

Press the (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

Shefin :

Press the <Black> or <Color> button.

Shefin :

The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Where will the b appear? All I can see flashing is E 0 2

Shefin :

Please restart the printer.

Shefin :

Then, follow the instructions.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

I have restarted the printer.

Shefin :

Press the (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

Shefin :

Press the <Black> or <Color> button.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Where will the b appear?

Shefin :

Where you see the error.

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Nothing is showing there now - just a _ light bar going up and down.

Shefin :

Have you presses the Maintenance button repeatedly?

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

It is now showing E21

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Yes.

Shefin :

That is a wireless error.

Shefin :

Have you tried using different types of papers?

JACUSTOMER-diks92qx- :

Sorry, I am logging off now. Thanks for your efforts but you have not resolved the problem, so, I won't pay you. I think you should inform Cannon about this problem because every body is complaining about it. Bye.

Shefin :

I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. Thank you for your patience with me.

Shefin :

If you wish, I would Opt out the question, so that you can check the issue with other experts.
