Question about Canon Pixma iP6600D InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Paper feeding crooked and jamming in my Canon IP6600D printer.

Top fed paper started feeding crooked and jamming every time I printed. I finally disconnected the printer, shook it and heard a rattle inside. Turned it upside down and a very small round metal piece fell out; it's about 1 1/2" long. It obviously has to go in the printer somewhere and keeps the paper straight when it feeds in the printer. Is this something I can fix from home?

SOURCE: paper jamming and can't print

Check if there is a piece of paper stuck in the feeder rollers, sometimes the smallest piece makes the bigger mess.

Hope That Helps!

There are probably problems with the rollers or the gear sequence that drives them. This type of repair may be more costly than what the printer is worth!

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: When I click on PRINT, the paper feeds through

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.

the most jam problem with this machine are:
  1. jam in the paper pickup (cassette)
  2. jam inside (fixing unit)
to avoid the paper jam problem with this copier; you need to use the correct paper weight (80 or 90 gr) if you are using 60gr paper you will always get the jam problem.

A paper jam message continues no paper in machine. started when printing an alignment page after new cartridge.

Hi there ok Generally when this happens, 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

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.

Printer has been working fine. all of a sudden the paper started to load crooked and jammed. now it continues to do this...why?

Usually it's because something has fallen down the back where the paper goes. One person on here turned her printer upside down and shook it and a Bic pen fell out. I got one last week with a wood screw inside. sometimes I find push pins, candy or jewelry. If nothing comes out try looking inside with a light and small mirror.

Won't feed

Just like some one else... First I turned off the printer. Then I turned it upside down and shook it. I found a rubber band in there that one of my sons shot at his brother(...and missed).
Now the printer feeds quite well.
Also, do not capture the paper between the adjustable giude and the opposite edge. Otherwise the guide at the non-fed side acts more like a brake because of the friction. I learned that in the conveyor business.

Printer not feeding paper correctly PIXMA MP510 multifunction Printer

Not sure if it will do it for you guys but after poking around, shaking, etc etc, i hadn't found a solution to the paper jam, I ended up trying to scan and print something, and, the paper aligned better at first and then i tried again after some error messages popped up, turned off the printer, rescanned and it didn't sound good at all, but dislodged a nail, that had fallen into the back cavity! now its working fine, so give it a shot, could just be that something has fallen in and is lodged. hope this helps.

Non stop paper jams

I had this same problem. I finally noticied that the problem occurred consistently on the right side of the paper feed. I discovered that a little part along the right side of my drum unit (just inside the paper feed area) had disconnected and was loose inside the drum unit itself. Once this little part was placed back into it's rightful place, VOILA! Problem solved! Hope this helps!

Paper jam error message

I had the same problem, and found that the sheet feeder mechanism was intermittent. The problem seems to be that the lubricating grease inside the mechanism.(white nylon round thing with gears on it) becomes too slippery with age, and stops picking up the activating arm which allows the cam unit to move to kick the top sheet of paper into the rubber feed wheel.
The repair was extremely difficult because it involved taking most of the printer apart to get to the ink pump/sheet feeder mechanism.(white nylon round thing with gears on it). And then I tried quite a few lubricants (including no lubricant at all) but none of these worked reliably. Finally I tried a dab of automotive wheel bearing grease (it feels like glue), and this worked perfectly. I have had no more paper jam errors and no miss-feeds in about 7months of everyday use.

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE

I've had this error for the last 2 months and periodically tried to fix it. - I finally read a suggestion to try to push something thicker than a plain sheet of paper through. I cut a side of a manilla folder into a 8.5"x11" and let the printer try to grab it during a copy. After doing it's normal "grab the right side until it's skewed and stop", I continued to try to push it through. I wasn't able to push it to the printing area, but I saw that a piece of something (not much bigger than a bread crumb) came out of the feeder into the interior print area. - I tried another copy, and it was very slightly improved but still skewing and jamming the paper. Suggest unplugging it before performing this...I then lifted the interior piece of plastic (white color for my Pixma MP 150 - which would be located above the paper as it was fed into the print area) slightly to allow any jammed items to come through. Out comes small pieces and then a larger piece of cracker (about the size of 1/4 a cheez-it). Ok I feel dumb, but I'm glad I found something. I picked out the crumbs and did a careful vacuum in the interior and exterior paper feed. Slight warning: The foam bottom below the ink is not secured and will get sucked up by the hose. And note, that I did try vacuuming the intake and interior previously with no improvement. The nozzle on my vacuum is too large to get into the bottom of the exterior intake. - For good measure, I also picked up the printer and turned it upside down and shook vigorously in a couple angles. I saw a couple more small crumbs come out. - My printer is now feeding the paper correctly and successfully made a copy/print.
