Hi, my name is*****’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your system. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

Please follow these steps to check for and clear out any paper jams in your printer:

Removing Jammed Paper from Inside of Scanning unit / Cover:

  1. Turn off printer and unplug it.

  2. Open scanning unit / cover.

  3. Check if jammed paper is under print head holder.

    If the jammed paper is under the print head holder, move the print head holder to the far right or left, whichever makes it easier to remove the paper.

    When moving the print head holder, hold the top of the print head holder and slide it slowly to the far right or left.

  4. Hold jammed paper firmly in both hands.

    If the paper is rolled up, pull out it.

  5. Slowly pull out paper, so as not to tear it.

    Pull out the paper at an angle of about 45 degrees.

  6. Make sure all jammed paper is removed.

    If the paper tears when you pull out it, a bit of paper may remain in the printer. Check the following and remove any remaining paper.

    • Any paper left under the print head holder?
    • Any small bits of paper left in the printer?
    • Any paper left in the left and right empty spaces (B) in the printer?
  7. Close scanning unit / cover firmly.

Removing Jammed Paper from Bottom Side of Printer:

  1. Turn off printer and unplug it.

  2. Stand printer up on its right side.

  3. Pull out paper output tray.

  4. Open bottom cover.

  5. Hold jammed paper firmly in both hands.

  6. Slowly pull out paper, so as not to tear it.

  7. Close bottom cover.

  8. Retract paper output tray.

  9. Return printer to its original position.

Please watch the following video as well to guide you on the above instructions:

If you are still not able to remove/find the paper jam this way, you will need to bring in the printer to a local authorized Canon service center. You can look up a nearby center using the following link:
