Learn how to remove a paper jam in your PIXMA MP640 or MP640R.

 

Solution

The instructions below will show you how to remove a paper jam from your printer.
 

Before you begin 

 If you turn off or unplug the printer you may stop a fax in progress or delete any faxes stored in the printer's memory.

  • If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the printer off and turn it back on. The paper may be ejected automatically.
 

Paper jam in the paper output slot or the rear tray

  1. Slowly pull the paper out, either from the rear tray or from the paper output slot, whichever is easier.

  2. If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, turn the printer off, open the scanning unit (cover), and remove the paper. Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.

  3. After you remove all paper, close the scanning unit (cover), and turn the printer back on.

  1. Reload the paper, and press the OK button on the printer.

     When you reload the paper, confirm that you use the correct paper and is loaded correctly.

  • A5 sized paper is suited for text documents. We don't recommend A5 sized paper to print documents with photos or graphics, since the printout may curl and cause paper jams.
