Ok look for anything that might have fell in to it..if the paper feed area is clear check the rollers for paper that might have not cleared or dust build up ...if its just dust build up get a can of compressed air and try to clear it you might want to also try to use a vacum to clean it also...good luck and let me know it if this doesnt help there could be other things to try...

Printer will not feed paper straight grabs one side and pulls the paper crooked and crumples the paper


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

It's not feeding the paper - its crumpling up on the right side and going in on an angle, but not feeding. Thoughts?


If you had a previous paper jam, there is probably a shred of paper still stuck inside on the right. You may also have another foreign object such as a paper clip in there - this is more common in top-feed designs than others. The tricky part after finding it is getting it out - you may have to do some disassembly. I've had to use a dental pick and a mirror in some cases.

Paper unable to feed


Remove all of the paper from the paper tray and slide the paper guides all the way to the side. Examine the paper for any crumpled or torn pieces, then reload the tray. Make sure the guides fit snugly against the sides of the paper. If the guides are too loose, the paper can feed into the iP1600 skewed and cause a paper jam. If the guides are too tight it can cause the printer to grab more than one piece of paper.

Open the front of the printer and wait for the print cartridges to move to the center. Do not move the cartridges by hand--this could damage the printer and void your warranty.

Pull the cartridges slightly toward you and lift them free of the printer. Set the cartridges aside.

Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any ink residue and paper dust. The Pixma iP1600 has a tendency to accumulate a lot of paper dust, especially during periods of heavy use. Cleaning the printer periodically is the best way to avoid problems.

Dip a cotton swab in warm water and carefully clean the bottom of each print cartridge. The print cartridges in the iP1600 printer also tend to accumulate paper dust. In addition the print nozzles can become clogged with ink residue, resulting in poor print quality and shortening the life of the cartridges. Continue wiping the cartridges until all ink residue and paper dust have been removed.
All the Best..

How do you fix a paper feed problem in a Cannon iP1600


Hi,
  1. Remove all of the paper from the paper tray and slide the paper guides all the way to the side. Examine the paper for any crumpled or torn pieces, then reload the tray. Make sure the guides fit snugly against the sides of the paper. If the guides are too loose, the paper can feed into the iP1600 skewed and cause a paper jam. If the guides are too tight it can cause the printer to grab more than one piece of paper.
  2. Open the front of the printer and wait for the print cartridges to move to the center. Do not move the cartridges by hand--this could damage the printer and void your warranty.
  3. Pull the cartridges slightly toward you and lift them free of the printer. Set the cartridges aside.
  4. Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any ink residue and paper dust. The Pixma iP1600 has a tendency to accumulate a lot of paper dust, especially during periods of heavy use. Cleaning the printer periodically is the best way to avoid problems.
  5. Dip a cotton swab in warm water and carefully clean the bottom of each print cartridge. The print cartridges in the iP1600 printer also tend to accumulate paper dust. In addition the print nozzles can become clogged with ink residue, resulting in poor print quality and shortening the life of the cartridges. Continue wiping the cartridges until all ink residue and paper dust have been removed.
Good Luck!

When printing begins the paper feeds in diagonally and immediately crumples a bit and stops moving.


Take out the paper and look in the paper feeding slot: you will see a metal rod with seven rubber rollers on it. One of them (the one opposite the crumpling) is not catching the paper properly.

Easy to fix reasons are pieces of paper or debris caught in the plastic "teeth" of the mechanism, which stop the paper from being captured, and the whole rod snapped out of one side's retainers (gently pull it back in position until it clicks. The snapped-out side is the one opposite the crumpling).

The debris might also be just inside the feeder slot, so you'll have to use a strong light and hair-tweezers.

Unlikely-to-be-fixable reasons include worn out or defective rollers, severely snapped-out-of-alignment rollers and a warped rod.

You may get the printer to print (if the rod is intact but mysteriously not catching the paper) by keeping the paper upright with two fingers on the sides, so that one side's rollers only are supplying traction and your fingers supply the steadying. Not very satisfactory, but the "hand-feeding" often works.

You may also get some more weeks out of a worn roller by cleaning it carefully with a cotton swab and rubber cleaning fluid (beware not to use a solvent! "Rubber renewing" sprays are usually OK, just spray some on the swab). Sometimes, dust is enough to get an otherwise good roller out of operation; in this case the trick gets you a couple years' time.

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.

Your saying the printer grabs the paper on the one side more than the other?
