paper jam.


my paper keeps getting jammed, even after I cleaned the rollers



Hi nessapoo15!


To have a better understanding of your issue, please let everyone know which model printer you own. That way, our Canon Forum members and our Subject Matter Experts will be able to assist you with suggestions appropriate for your printer model.




Is this a new issue or happening on a new machine? Does the jam happen right when the paper is picked up by the printer or in the middle? What model printer are you working with? A unit with a front load paper tray or rear-load only?

i have the 892 will tell me there is no paper or it is jammed. help!!!


Hi nessapoo15,


Since cleaning the rollers did not resolve the issue, we will want to ensure that there are no obstructions in the printer that may be causing the paper to not feed properly.  With a flashlight or other bright light, please look in the paper feed areas of the printer, as well as the inside of the printer where the print head is located and ensure that there are not any pieces of paper or other obstructions.  Once this has been verified, if you still experience the same issue, the printer will unfortunately require servicing to resolve the issue.  Please click on the Contact Us link below for your servicing options.


If this is a time-sensitive matter, additional support options are available at Contact Us.

Hi so I have a Canon PIXIMA MG6821 and I understand how to fix the basic printer jam. Honestly I feel like a pro at this point because at first it was just jamming when it would try to print double sided but now it is jamming when it pulls the paper in or as it is printing on the first side. Can someone please help me figure out why it keeps jamming
