Canon Pixma Error 5400

My Canon Pixma MP510 multi-function printer has recently become unusable. When I turn it on, it goes into its pre-clean cycle, then suddenly there is a bang and it stops. On the printer's screen, the message "Error code 5400" appears and it refuses to print or scan. Can anyone please help me sort this out.

A quick google says this is a paper feed error.Have a look to see if your have a paper jam

Thanks for trying, but I don't think the problem is a paper jam. I've checked, just to be certain and I'm fairly sure there's no jam. apart from this, the printer was working perfectly the last time I used it, just over a week ago. Thanks again, anyway.

Then it sounds like a paper feed mechanism failure.
