Learn how to remove paper jammed inside the PIXMA TR150.


If the jammed paper tears and you can't remove it from the paper output slot or the rear tray, or it remains inside the printer, watch the how-to video or follow the written instructions below on how to remove the paper jam.

Before you begin

Remove a paper jam

  1. Turn off the printer and unplug it. If a battery is used, turn off the printer, then detach the battery.

  2. Open the print head cover.

  5. Slide it slowly to the right edge or the left edge, whichever makes it easier to remove the paper.

  • Is there any paper left under the print head holder?

  • Is there any paper left in the left and right empty spaces (A) in the printer?

Good to know

  • When you reload the paper, make sure you use suitable paper and is correctly loaded.

  • If a paper jam message appears on the printer's LCD or on your computer screen when you resume the print jobs after all the jammed paper are removed, there may still be small bits of paper left inside the printer.
