Question about Printers & Copiers
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.

The same problem with MP220.
But the solution was for me:
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.
At first I thought, that I am not an idion... to gave smthing inside, but in the end I tryed and find my SD card from camera. Printer works perfect!!!!

Also thought turning it upside down was a stupid idea,
until it fixed my printer and found my green pen also :-)

Yes! Didn't see anything fall out but turning it upside down and shaking it has FIXED THE PROBLEM!

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.

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!
