    I would like to thank everyone for trying to help with my printer situation. I tried everything suggested and came to no solution. This week, I will be taking the printer to the Best Buy store and see if they can figure out what is wrong with it.

    Thanks again

If your printer doesn't feed with normal printing try a manual line feed. If the print cartridge is moving then there is either a paper jam or check to see if anything has fallen into the paper feed roller. Here's the roller cleaning procedure from Canon for your mode. Please let me know if you still need help after cleaning the rollersl:
Paper Feed Roller is dirty.
You may need to clean the Paper Feed Rollers of the Auto Sheet Feeder. Follow the procedure below.
Cleaning the Paper Feed Roller of the Auto Sheet Feeder consumes it, so perform this procedure only when necessary.
Three sheets of A4 or Letter paper are required for the cleaning. Have them on hand.
 
(1) Make sure that the printer is turned on, and then remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder.
(2) Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu.
(3) Click the Maintenance tab, then Roller Cleaning.
(4) The confirmation message is displayed. Follow the instruction on the screen.
 
(1) Make sure that the printer is turned on, and then remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder.
(2) Open the Canon IJ Printer Utility dialog box.
See Opening the Canon IJ Printer Utility (Macintosh).
(3) Make sure that Cleaning is selected in the pop-up menu.
(4) Click Roller Cleaning.
(5) The confirmation message is displayed. Follow the instruction on the screen.
If this procedure does not solve the problem, clean the surface of the roller with applying a slightly moisten cotton swab with water to wipe off dust or stain. If the problem still persists, contact a Canon service representative.

Have you still getting the problem, have you done cleaning of Cartridge, its nozzle and Contact strip.. then cleaning of Printer roller or carriage rack.. Do a Service of it or get it done by Technician.

Also check the feeder tray.. to grab paper one by one by printer.. Manually

Take all updates for printer and OS.

SOURCE: Paper feeds crooked into the printer

Check the adjustments for the paper your using. Open the printer and look on the rollers you'll probably find paper or an obstruction clear it and also clean then rubber moving parts with isopropyl alcohol to give them their grip back.

SOURCE: paper not feeding through for printing - Canon MP240

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.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


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.

Panasonic KX-P7110 printer won't print from the auto feed tray, shows error when printing is attempted.


Hello,
Please check the entire length of the paper feed path from input to output for a small piece of paper that is stuck causing a "Paper Jam".
You are lucky that you can still print manually as this usually shuts a printer down until the jam is found and removed!
Good Luck!

Double printing on pixma mp470


Double printing or double feed??. Double printing means document printed in 2 copies. Double feed means printer feed double paper in one moment. For double printing,please check number of copy of document in printing preference properties.
Double feed occurs when pickup roller fails to pick the paper correctly. It's usually caused by shaft of paper pick up roller which is broken. You should replace drive assembly (include pick up roller) in this case

Paper feeds, but won't print. As far as I can tell there is ink.


Ensure the Paper Tray is Not Overfilled Each printer tray has a maximum capacity rating, and this rating is based on a specific paper weight and or thickness. Consequently, situations might arise in which the tray will not be able to accommodate the maximum number of sheets listed in the printer specifications. Verify that the paper is not packed too tightly in the paper tray Adjust the Printer Paper Guides Adjust the paper guides to fit the size paper being used (Figure 1). The guides should be close (1/16" or less) to the paper without touching, so that the paper stays properly aligned without continually rubbing the guides. Locate and Remove Any Obstructions Inside the Printer and Input Tray Open the front cover and make sure the kickstand (if there is one) is engaged. Locate and remove any obstructions within the printer, such as paper pieces, staples, tape, or other objects. Close the cover. Remove all paper from the input tray. Inspect the input tray for any obstructions. Remove any visible obstructions. Reinsert the paper. Determine if Multiple Sheets Are Fed at Once From the Paper Tray or ADF Determine if multiple sheets are fed at once from the the paper tray or Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Verify the print media installed is compatible with the printer Clean the ADF Paper Feed Roller Disconnect the AC power from the printer. Open the cover of the Automatic Document Feeder (Figure 1). Figure 1: Raise the Cover of the Automatic Document Feeder Using a damp paper towel, gently wipe the rubber roller to remove any ink or paper debris (Figure 2). Figure 2: Paper Feed Roller on the Automatic Document Feeder Close the cover and reconnect the power. Reseat the Dell Printer Power Adapter If your printer has a momentary loss of communication with your computer, it may be necessary to reset the printer to re-establish communication. You can reset a Dell? inkjet printer by unplugging the printer power cord from the electrical outlet and from the back of the printer for 10 seconds then reattaching the cord at both ends. If the printer queue icon is showing in your system tray (by your clock), you may have documents that are paused for printing. To resume printing a paused document: Double-click the printer queue icon to check document status of the active printer. Right-click on any documents that show Paused under Status, and then click Resume in the drop-down menu. Try a Different Type of Print Media Many image quality and paper feed issues are caused by the type of print media being used. Try a different type of print media that is specifically made for this printer. Replace the printer.

My HP C7250 inserts a blank page between every printed page. Windows Vista PC.


Perhaps this is a characteristic of the document being printed: Manual paper feeds in addition to the automatic paper feed characters? Use the word processing program matching the document to remove the unwanted paper feeds.

HP 6200 without telling it to print, feeds and jams continually


I already encounter that problem lately. when you print your documents, the only response of the printer is paper jam. feed and jam.

try this tip if acceptable of your situation now.

only to do is copy your documents by edit button and then select all or highlight all that your going to print and then right to copy

and then, open a new documents page set up if needed.

and then print it without saving your file because that already save.

Paper Feed


The problems are particularly frustrating if it's a Word 2007 document that you're trying to print. Open the document, go to the Page Layout tab, select Page Set Up > Paper and set your printer source to whichever tray you want. Apply to the whole document and voila !

Document feeder works for printing but not for scanning


Hi, When you had the doucment feed jam were you able to clean or remove any paper that might be blocking the paper to be scanned? It sounds like there is paper still in the document feeder , I would open the DF and check very closely to make sure no paper is in the way!Good Luck!
