    I assume you mean how do you reset the printer after the physical paper jam has been cleared. If that is the case, there should be a Stop/Reset button on the main controls, if so, press it. I have a different model PIXMA, so you might not have that button; if you don't, turn it off, wait about a minute (really wait a minute or it will not fully reset), then turn it back on. That should do it, if not, post back and I'll try to help you clear out the error state.

    Yeah, you have to pull the paper out by hand, or tweezers, or pliers, or stab at it with a knife, whatever works. :)

    I'm glad it's working!
