1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
If the printer still misfeeds then its hardware problem..

Canon pixma mp495 error


Solution 2 is correct there is either a paper jam, or somthing obstructing the print path. First check to make sure you don't see no paper jamed, if not look in were you would put the paper to see anything that may have fallen that is causing jam, gentel turn printer side to side to see if u see hear or see anything moving around. If u see nothing then somthing has surly has fallen in printer has gotten stuck in printer rollers more then likly. To find out what's stuck find a piece of thin cardboard, I used the front cover of my phonebook and push cardbord through printer and what ever is jamimg the paper should pop out on the other side. In my case it was a flower seed and I was able to use twizzer to remove and issue was resolved. Printer is working fine

Paper misfeeding on one side but printer keeps printing with no paper


Look for any foriegn objects or old torn paper from an earlier jam. Something is either obstructing or mis-guiding the paper. If nothing is found, use a can of compressed air to blow thr paper intake area out, then test print again.

If still not solved, use a cottom swan soaked in alcohol to scrub clean the rubber paper pickup roller. Over time it gets slick from paper dust and the paper will notget grabbed evenly, causing it to skew as it's pulled in.

Hi I have a cannon mp470 and it will not pull paper through to print. It either doesn't catch at all, or it will jam to one side.


Hi

There is something stopping the paper feed process. Try the following
1. Check and make sure nothing is fallen inside the paper tray
2. Remove anything stuck
3. Even if you are not able to see anything stuck tray to use a air blower and blow air in the tray this will remove anything stuck.

How do I access the rear tray roller feeds to check if anything is stuck all of a sudden the paper is skewed on the right side and paper doesnñt enter the feed


You say the paper is scewed to the right which means absolutely nothing if you think about it, isn't the left hand side also scewed? Usually one side of the paper is pulled down leaving the other side up thus scewing it.
Firstly make sure nothing has fallen down the paper slot, secondly make sure the sliding paper adjuster to the left of the paper is up tight against the paper, even a 1 millimetre gap can cause this problem, thirdly look down the paper slot with the paper in and make sure there is no gap between the bottom edge of paper and plastic shute or case, you really shouldn't be able to see much of the two pieces of white plastic, now press the green start button.

Paper jam error


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. 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.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


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.

When printing paper gets jammed immediately gets so far and tears


this is likely something fallen down the back of your paper feed, tip it up and see if you can dislodge it, when the paper feeds see which side gets stuck and which side is pulled in. the problem behind one of the rollers on the side that the paper gets stuck, so if you can get inside with a spatula or wedge to lift the roller/rollers onthat side and tip the printer backwards youve got a fair chance of removing the problem. alternatively the problem could be with the front set of rollers check that there is nothing within the printer behind these rollers also.

Printing Fault


Remove the paper and look inside, you will see some rolelrs that pick up the paper.
Take a cloth with some soapy cleaner, like fantastic or something alont that line.
Dampen that cloth with them and clean the rollers. May have to clean them 3 or 4 times to get all the comtaminants off of the rollers.
If they still are misfeeding. run your fingertips across them and see if they have a "slick smoothe" feel to them, if so, the are wonr out and in need of replacing.
