Paper won't feed properly and jams. the paper starts to feed then twists and jams.


There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.

My canon pixma MP210, is not feeding the paper through, seems to jam, but printer still is printing. The paper is taken about 10cms into printer, then twists slightly but does not fee through. Have checked...


There is a foreign object in the paper tray. Because it is curved you cannot see it. It is stuck in the narrowed area right before the feeding rollers.
Disconnect the cables and rotate the printer in a way it stands on its back.
Open the front cover. Use long thin flat screw driver that can go trough the paper out area and to reach the feed roller.Insert the screw driver between each pressure roller and the the feed roller to release the object. If successful it will fall out from the tray. Usually it's a coin, pen, point-protector, ruller, paper clip and so on.

The paper twists when feeding into the printer


If this is happening from the paper tray, you probably could use a new set of rollers for the tray. Also, have you had any paper jams where when you cleared the jam there was some paper missing? We have seen useres clear jams and leave a little bit of paper in the printer which blocks the paper path causing the paper to twist in the path as it hits the jam piece of paper. If the jam is a little after the pickup area you could have a bad registration assembly which is immediately before the area where the paper picks up the image. If this is happening at the exit, it could be a bad fusing assembly.

I Have Canon MP600. The paper twists when I start printing copies. Ihave cleaned Paper Feed Rollers. It still twists paper When printing.


You need to look down inside where the paper goes, I use a flashlight and small mirror. I find things like candy,screws, gum wrappers, caught way down where they are hard to remove.

Card Stock is Not Fed from the Bypass Tray


Check the inside of the printer, ensure that there is no paper or foreign object stuck, sometimes they go undetected and they can affect normal printer feeding.
Try pulling out the paper tray and check the paper feeding mechanics underneath the printer.
Usually feeding problems are mechanic, if you cannot fix them in this simple way you will need to take printer apart and check feeding traction mechanics, this is usually a job that is better done at a repair shop.

First remove the paper and tip the printer onto its back and give it a shake to see if anything comes out from the paper feed. Next try a piece of stiff card approx A4 size and insert this where the paper feeds into the printer. Give it a good wiggle and push it the the printer, watch the inside to see what is pushed out. I have found everything from plant leaves to a golf tee!
