Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Paper not feeding

Recently the paper feed from the top and bottom trays/inputs has fouled up. No paper is stuck (now) and it seems to be a roller not pulling the paper through properly, in fact it is not going through at all. Like to get a solution as this printer has been good for two years.

    Have you unplugged the power from printer? Moreover, have you checked to make sure the printer cartridges are secured and locked?

There is something in the input tray that is stuck right behind the long feed roller.
Unplug the printer, turn it on its back. Get a thin long flat skrew driver. Push it trough the paper out area and reach the feed roller. Then push it between the feed roller and pressure rollers rising them one by one to release what is stuck behind them. Hopefully it will fall out the input tray.

Paper is feeding in on right but not on left so just screws up


Try turning over and shaking to see if something is stuck in the feed area and try feeding from the bottom tray if the top roller is worn out.

Check the rollers in tray 3 to see if they are slick. If not, replace the paper input unit C4214-69017.

5300 won't load 8 1/2x 11 photo-weight paper.


''grabber'' roller out of work sometimes, you may try
1) there is a input paper sensor around roller, the roller out of runing if the sensor is not senitive enough or sensor switch dirty,
clean the sensor as you can find it,
2) Lighter-weight paper feeds and prints fine, which means this paper input sensor works ok, but you need to make sure they are same paper input sensor,.
3) the paper surface bright and the roller worn could be cause paper feed fail, you need clean the roller anyway. still not fixed, you need to adjust the roller pressure by increase the spring force.`

Doesn't Print - Says "Paper Jam"


That is the problem, machine will show printer jam if paper feed rollers fail to pick up paper when requested, your machine sounds like it needs new paper feed roller or you can clean the paper feed roller with a slightly! damp cloth.

If no jam light shows when power is turn on and machine comes to ready and then you send a job to printer and it then shows jam then it is the feed roller or sometimes the feed clutch

If on the other hand it always show jam then there is or a switch is stuck.

Automatic Paper feed


Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.

Paper not feeding


Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.
