SOURCE: HP printer 1220c disk jet will not feed thick card

Cleaning the pick-up roller didn't do the job for me.

But here's what worked!

Step 1: Be patient! It took me about an hour to do this. You'll need emery cloth or steel wool (might work). Or some type of a sanding or abrasive pad. rather fine grit is preferred. And a can of compressed air.

2. Unplug the printer (where the cord attaches to the printer).

3. Unplug the cable that goes to your computer (where the cable attaches to the printer).

4. Remove the back gizmo that "locks".

5. Pick up the printer and set it in your lap so the back is facing up at you. See those rubber rollers? Those are the problem!

6. Using your abrasive material, "sand" each roller from side to side until the light grayish crud is removed. Don't be afraid to push somewhat hard. Do not just smear the light gray oxidized coating around - sand until you see BLACK.

7. You can only do little strips on each roller at a time, then rotate the rollers a little and do this until you have cleaned each roller all the way around. This is a pain in the, uh, knuckles, but the reward will be worth it! Get that gray stuff off of those rollers!

8. Take your nail polish remover, place your finger over the opening, and tip the bottle to get some on your fingertip. Then rub it around on the rollers. Again, you'll only be able to do a small strip of the rollers, then have to rotate the rollers a little and do it all again - multiple times.

9. Take the printer outside and use your compressed air to blow out most of the grit from your emery cloth which is in the printer. Be sure to protect your eyes while doing this! At least close 'em while blowing the grit out.

10. Hook everything back up and try a print.It worked for me! I have no idea how long this will continue to print the thicker papers for me, but it's working now. Best of luck to you!

SOURCE: on "print" command, paper feed


you may have something in the paper feed area.. unplug all .. lift printer upside down and shake lightly, see if something is lodged in the paper feed area..
if this is not the issue, perhaps the roller(s) is off centre and requires adjusting

send me 4 thumbs up please.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.

We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.

Paper jams on left side of printer and will not feed through

You have almost certainly got a foreign object in the paper feed path as there is nothing on the L/H
side that could cause an obstruction. First of all turn the printer off & disconnect all cables. Turn
the printer upside down and give a good shake, with luck the blockage should fall out. If not then you need to be a bit brave, make sure the print carriage is parked fully right and out of the way. You will need an A4 (approx) sized piece of stiff cardboard such as the backing from an A4 note pad. Insert this into the paper feed locating it between the feed rollers on the R/H side. Then push quite firmly to overcome the spring pressure, when you feel it push through about a half inch stop and open the printer to see what is being pushed through. Push the card fully through and retrieve the foreign object (I have found everything from paperclips, curtain hooks and even a golf tee!). Push the card through fully and out of the printer. Always remove paper jams etc, in the direction of the paper feed whenever possible
as pulling anything backwards can dislodge or break the sensor flags.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Canon S820 Inkjet Printer

Turn the machine off, remove all paper in the feed tray, turn the machine upside down, give it a healthy whack on the base. See what falls out. If lots of junk drops out, put everything back and try a test page. If still no go, try feeding a piece of light card BACK through the paper feed from the front. This will A) identify where the jam is occurring and hopefully B) push it out so it can be removed.
It is also possible that something has gone deeper into the machine, but some disassembly would be required to find it.
