Besides having so many features, canon printers may come up with several errors during configuration, printing, wireless connectivity or other tasks. These errors may halt the entire printing operation and waste your precious time. The most common error you may have to face with your Canon printer is paper jamming error. Paper jamming error means when the paper gets stuck inside the printer and it stops printing. Thankfully, the error has a solution. To fix this error, all you need to do is follow the below mentioned troubleshooting steps:

  1. Turn off the machine by unplugging the power cord from the power supply
  2. Open the paper output cover carefully and remove the paper, if found on the front tray
  3. Make sure you don’t touch the clear film. Also make sure that the jammed paper is not left under the fine cartridge holder
  4. If you find any piece of paper, move the fine cartridge holder towards the right edge or the left edge in order to remove the paper easily
  5. Handle the fine cartridge carefully to avoid any kind of breakage
  6. Hold the jammed paper with your hands so avoid further tear in it
  7. If the paper is rolled up inside, pull it out with your hands
  8. Once it is pulled out, make sure that there is no other piece of paper left inside the cartridge
  9. But, if the paper is torn, slide the cartridge to that side accordingly
  10. Close the paper output cover
  11. Now, reload the paper
