1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and aclean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensureyour paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptompersist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Lookclosely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer;this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, theywill often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If youcan find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message displaywindow and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer errorcode.

I have just had the same problem on one of these Canon MF4150 machines.
The manufactures warranty on our machine had expired just one week before this happened so I had to fix this myself.
The problem we had (which is very likely to be the same cause as yours) is when we removed some torn jammed paper, it had somehow pulled off a spring from inside the machine. The spring was linked to the paper jam sensor.
It does involve a LOT of work to fix it, and unless you are very 'techy' it may be quite a difficult task to do this for the 'average' person.
I had to completely disassemble the machine:Take off the front first (lift up the cover and there is 2 screws at the front and 2 clips on the bottom of the machine)Then remove the 2sides and finally the top (screws should be easy to see, to get the sides off, un-clip along the front edges and gently move them outwards and slide them backwards to release the clips on the back) being careful with the wires going to the scanner part).Then look for the fuser unit which is near the top at the back, there is a black rounded cover over the fuser. To remove the cover, look for 2 small clips one at each side and unclip the cover and gently lift upwards.Under the cover on the left side you will see a small plastic rod which goes from the left side to a small tab in the middle, if you look about half way along that rod you should see a tiny spring, make sure this is clipped on properly and that you are able to rotate the rod and it should spring back to the proper position when you let go.
Once this is done, put it all back together again and it should work fine.
I'm sure a lot of other people probably have this same problem too so I hope this helps someone.

Thanks Repairman99!
That was EXACTLY the problem with a copier my grantmother has!  I was able to find the spring and the plastic "hook" that broke off!
Used a small screw to reattach it and works again!!!
Thanks so much for your post!!!
