Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Feeds multiple sheets of paper at once

My Canon PIXMA MP160 has always worked flawlessly, but yesterday it suddenly started pulling in several sheets at once every time I tried to print.
Does it just need some kind of adjustment?

    My Canon PIXMA MP150 feeds all the sheets of paper at once. Cleaned the rollers with cotton and alcohol but still having the same problem. Any suggestions?

This usually happens when "paper dust" builds up on the take in rollers. Clean the rollers with cotton and alcohol.

Similar situation like that happens in commercial printing. It often relates to the paper/weather condition. Try to aerate the paper, change paper batch completely. Was there a sudden change in the ambient temp. or humidity ?

My canon Pixma MP160 feeds too many sheets at one time. I have cleaned the rollers. It was printing beautifully not five minutes ago.

I recommend fanning your paper. Take the stack of paper from your input tray or feeder. Fan it like you would a deck of playing cards. This may help keep the leading edges of improperly cut paper from meshing to each other, resulting in feeding more than one sheet.

When I click on PRINT, the paper feeds through without printing and there is a PAPER JAM message. There have also been feed problems in that the paper goes through crooked, although it was fed in straight....

The transport rollers are a slightly roughened rubber that gets less 'sticky' with age and the rollers become fouled with paper fibers that insulate the rubber from the driven sheet. Cleaning the rollers (on most, some disassembly required) may cure both problems but if you have ever done labels with the machine, you may have some residue of small piece of one in the wrong place.
Many of our (nearly disposable) printers are put together with molded snaps that must be pried upon to free them so it may be a daunting task for someone inexperienced.

Auto sheet feeder does not load paper straight causing it to jam.

Normal 0 Worth a try:
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print buttonapplying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed throughthe printer. The reason for this, in some cases I have been able to clearthe paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth atry. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costlyrepairs.

Paper jam

One of your jam sensors may be stuck in the actuated position by a paper scrap or dust, giving a jam code to your printer. There are usually two sensors, one where the paper feeds, and one where the paper exits. Try this: hand-feed a sheet of paper through the machines paper path,IN THE DIRECTION THE PAPER NORMALLY FEEDS. This may force out whatever is actuating the sensors.

Sometimes these printers the roller that pulls the paper in doesn't have enough grip to it. If that's the case you need to clean it with a Q-tip.

They are also sometimes spring loaded to touch the paper and pull it in, so perhaps loading more than one sheet into the printer will help?
