    AAAHHH! I have the same problem with the MP220. Really starting to get under my skin as of course I have important things to do with my print outs. Has anyone found a solution?

    Thanks

Try turning your printers upside down as it may have something stuck inside it!!! i had a crayon inside mine which caused the same problems as you.

I tried turning my printer upside down but nothing fell out. Then I pushed an A4 size piece of thin cardboard through and dislodged a drawing pin which had obviously fallen in at some stage. Solved the problem, prints perfectly and no more trouble with paper feed.

SOURCE: paper won't feed through canon printer. no paper jam apparent -

Hello there gave it a go this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: Paper wont feed into printer no paper jam



In the comments section Blumm suggests pushing a piece of cardboard (like the back of a legal pad) through the feeder as far as you can. Turn the printer off and then on again with it in there. Pull the cardboard out and check for any foreign objects that have been pushed through.
It worked for many people including myself - I got a piece of plastic and it works wonderfully again!

Canon mp220 pulling paper to the right and jamming


This is caused either by a small piece of paper left in the printer after a paper jam where the majority of a sheet of paper has been pulled out but with a corner torn off and still left in the printer or it can be from a foreign object dropped into the paper feed tray. Sometimes turning the printer upside down and shaking it can dislodge the object, if it doesn't, you will need to take the printer apart to look for the problem. A few philips head screws around the printer will need to be removed first then carefully 'pop' the plastic clips apart using a small flat screwdriver.

There's nothing stuck in my canon mp220 printer but it still has a paper jam error when there's nothing in it? help


the paper jam errror is due to the sensor falsely detecting a block. So if there is no sign of any paper jam, you have to remove the motor assembly in the carriage drive.
Now the rollers can be manually turned so as to check if there is any bits struck within. You will have to see if the sensor is clogged with dirt or paper bits.These sensors are optocouplers and reflect the IR.
So it can be faulty or detached. check or replace.

Canon MP220 printer. when i load the paper it starts to go to one side, a rustling sound then paper just gets stuck


I had same problem. Lift up Scanner section and check along white paper feed rollers with torch. I could see something between rollers and bottom roller bar. Lifted up that section of white roller with two small flat bladed screwdrivers. This revealed a " Sweet Rapper" jammed under rollers.Removed printer now ok.

Feed problems cannon pixma MP220


I would remove and reinstall the driver to see if that will correct the single copy problem.
On paper: low cost paper generally has a high wood fiber content making the surface rougher than that of better paper stock and more likely to 'stick' together. With any kind of paper, it is useful to fan the stack before placing it into the feed tray or cassette. Sometimes the edges are not sheered cleanly which can also cause them to tend to stay together. Fanning helps overcome this too.
