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.
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 this fails then there hardware problem and its rollers failure in printer .....

Good luck...

Why MP160 printer can not pull the paper? how to fix?


Look to the pickup roller in the feed tray - is it covered in paper dust or other particles? Also look down into the paper path for obstructions.

The paper will not feed on the left side


Every time I see these I find pens, candy, clips, other objects have fallen down the back where the paper goes. One lady picked up her printer, turned it upside down and shook it and a bic pen fell out, It worked fine after that.

Canon pixma mp780 auto feed does not print


You probably need a new printhead, but that problem cann also be caused by the purge or cleaning station not working properly. If you do a cleaning cycle with no carts. and the little pads in the printhead come back with no ink on them then the purge is working and you need a new printhead.

Mp160 won't feed or sometimes will on left only, rollers r moving


I had a screw fall into my paper feed area before and didn't discover it till I tilted the printer on it's side. Could be a small foreign object in there somewhere. Tip it over and listen for loose stuff.

Feeds multiple sheets of paper at once


This usually happens when "paper dust" builds up on the take in rollers. Clean the rollers with cotton and alcohol.

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.
