Nich, I had the same problem and tried your suggestion with the card stock and it worked first try. Thanks!

This guy is a genius. Tried pushing paper through from the rear slot with no luck. However, when I pushed it to and fro through the front exit slot it did the trick. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you. I have an mx432, also with a false paper jam error. Read on other sites & also from Canons forums to clean the roller etc. Trouble is I couldn't do what they recommended because it would not let me get past the error code. If I had a tail I was chasing it. I cut a manilla folder to the width of 8.5 & passed it through ever slot I could. It worked!!!!
Meanwhile Canon is telling me to take it to a service center.M

WORKED! INSERT FROM REAR, THICK POST CARD, FROM BACK TO FRONT.

That worked for me. Lucky to have a 70 lb piece of cardboard. Followed it up with a bottom plate cleaning.
