Paper goes in crooked and jams on my cannon MP210 printer

This is the third cannnon printer I have owned and each time after about two months the paper jams. It looks like one of the alignment springs pop out. I don't know how to fix this. HELP!

    Tried different paper. The same paper works fine in a cheap Samsung laser printer. This is the second Canon that is giving me headaches with paper feed. It seems that Canon printers are just not up to snuff when it comes to paper handling.

One thought leaps into my brain: paper! If you have old paper it gets moisture and sticks. Keep it in a dry place or foil, shuffle the stack sort of like playing cards to separate the pages and keep the stack fairly small like 3/8 inch then do line feeds to see if the rollers are working right. All 3 Canon printers did this? If you see springs popping out then something is horribly wrong. HP printers are the best for transport mechanics and all printers are relatively cheap these days but paper is often overlooked as a potential problem.

Canon MP210 takes paper crooked and spits out crooked or jams. How to fix? Followed manual for cleaning feed roller but to no avail. Thanks

could it be a paper clip fell into the paper feed slot? see if you can shine some light into the slot and use a dentist's angled mirror to examine. sound like debris may be the culprit. disassemble it to the extent that you have ability to. LEARN THAT WAY!

My cannon printer keeps saying alarm 32 what does this mean

You may have to open and shut a door to make it reset. There is a sensor detecting something or claiming too. The paper tends to load on the right side and not the left. The paper goes in sideways and therefore jams. This seems to be a common complaint with this printer.

Paper jams every time

Only dirty rollers are obstructing the paper path. Clean the rollers with a moist cloth (NOT WET).

Every time I go to make a copy the printer pulls the paper in crooked and it jams

One of the biggest reasons for the paper feeding in crooked is that the platen (what the actual paper feeds across to be typed on) gets really slick. All in all that platen and anything that handles the paper needs to be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol. It will restore the texture to all the parts that actually handle the paper going through. That is all there is to that problem. God bless.

Cannnon mp-530 shows 6a00

This is same as the wat full
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

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.

I think it is not loading paper correctly. May be something struck in the way of roller. Or may be due to insufficient paper.

Another reason may be cover not closed completely.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
