Problem on Canon Pixma IP4300

  bruno 15:52 28 Feb 2008

I had one sheet of paper jammed on this 15 month old printer.I carefully removed it, but the printer will not stop sending me the "Paper Jammed" message, and after restarting it to get rid of the message it passes one sheet of paper through without printing and then gives out the message again.At the suggestion of their support department, I unplugged it and left it overnight and uninstalled and reinstalled the software. Non of this cured the problem.I e mailed the support dept. and after two days they also told me to leave it unplugged overnight (even though I told them it had been done).
I have more faith in the members here than I have in Canon, so if anyone has any helpful suggestions I will be happy to hear them.

Uninstall the software again.

Disconnect the printer from the PC.

Install and run click here (including 'Issues') to get rid of any left over references to the printer and then re-install

Thanks.I will try that now.

If that doesn't work have a really good look for a tiny scrap of paper, it really doesn't take much to jam it up. And I mean tiny.

I tried that and it is just the same, but thanks for the suggestion.
I will have another look, although I had a pretty good look before.What is bugging me is that it passes a clean sheet of paper through for one cycle before putting out the message.

Can't find any trace of anything in there.Canon suggested it might be a faulty paper sensor but gave no indication where it was and I can't see anything that looks like a sensor.

Hello Bruno,
Have you already found a solution for your problem?
If so, could you please tell me what it was? I have exactly the same problem with my 4300.
Thanks very much in advance.
