Question about Canon Pixma iP6000D InkJet Photo Printer

Paper feeder pulls paper incorrectly

I have never been able to use this printer because the paper does not enter correctly. Facing the printer, the paper is pulled to the right only, not entering the printer, just wrinkling. I have tried auto head alignment and manual but nothing works. Thanks for any help you can give me. Sally Miller (saliff)

Dodgecharger pretty much hit it on the head. If the paper pulls on the right, then there should be an obstruction on the left preventing the paper from moving through paper path. Look especially for a small bit paper leftover from a paper jam. Just remember, go gentle and go slow. Keep a small problem small.

A few possibilities exist: Look for something jammed in the paper path- by chance a paper clip, extraneous piece of paper, or even a broken piece of the printer itself. I'd guess there is a multi-section roller which pulls the paper, perhaps one section is slick- a tiny bit of oil or something on it. Something sticky (spilled pop) can goof things too. Anything amiss in paper path will foul up the paper feeding properly.

Had paper stuck in feed . reached in, got it out. Now printer will not print because it says ' out of paper' when there is paper in it.

Hi, Pul the plug for 30 minutes and try agian. By pulling the plug you reset the printer. Next, make sure your paper is in correctly. If it is in incorrectly the feeder will jam. Do not go beyond the feed mark on tray. Good luck.

Paper feeds incorrectly the feeder is pulling to the left and causing the paper to jam or to tear.

Sometimes dried ink on the roller causes it to incorrectly "grip" the paper, making it slip in one section and pull to the side, Check the rollers for Ink and other dirt.
Also try less paper in the feeder, it may simply be too much and is not able to feed it correctly.
Hope this helps GM

Paper feeder stuck

If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't

    1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

    Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

    Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

    Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

    Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

    Pull out the extension completely.

    Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

    Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
    If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

    Follow the steps:
    Turn on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Auto Sheet Feeder indicator light turns on.
    Pull up on the paper sheet feeder on the top and back of the printer and slide out the paper support.
    Take a stack of no more than 10 pieces of photo paper and flatten the corners, if they are curled. Curled corners may cause jams within the printer.
    Place the paper in the paper sheet feeder with the printable side of the paper facing up. The printable side of photo paper is the shiny or whiter side of the paper.
    Print your documents as needed.

    Paper Cassette :

    Switch on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Cassette indicator light turns on.
    Pull on the cassette on the bottom of the printer to slide it out of the printer.
    Flatten the corners of a stack of no more than 10 sheets of photo paper if the corners are curled. The paper may become jammed in the printer if the corners are curled.
    Place the stack of paper in the cassette so the paper is touching the right side and the printing side of the paper is facing down. Adjust the plastic paper guides so they touch the paper. The paper stack guides help facilitate the paper moving into the printer.
    Slide the cassette back into the bottom of the printer. The printer is ready for printing.

    Information on how to use rear feed

    1. Prepare your doc/file for printing.
    2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated.
    3. Change printer setup to feed from rear.
    4. Print.

    Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."
