    problems of paper feeding in canon mpc190 printer

  • Lila67 Apr 07, 2008

    My printer does the same thing. It grabs on the right side and gets a paper jam error. I can't see anything in the printer causing a jam, but can't see very far in printer. Is there something I can take off of the printer to see inside? I tied shaking it but to no avail.

  • Lila67 Apr 08, 2008

    After trying to shake loose any stuck paper, I am now getting a square zero instead of a 1. What does that mean?

    Just shoved a manila envelope through left side of printer and forced what looked like a small piece of food (french fry?) out and printer is again working great. Thanks for your reader's solution. Showing evidence to 12-year-old orf why he can't use my computer ever again. Thanks again ever so much!

Awesome...fixed mine too. Mine was a little foam bumble bee that fell off of my daughters flower art work, which sat right above the printer.

I found a key on a key ring eventually, It was fairly stuck in there I located it by watching where the edge of paper that failed to feed was damaged. The paper was bent bout an inch from the left hand side. Another indication was that envelopes were feeding ok when the left hand guide was holding them to the right. It was difficult to get that key out and I cut the piece of cardboard backing from a drawing pad to three inches wide and could not believe it when having pushed it in from the feed at the back when i pulled it out, with it came this key.
One thing sure, either my printer or the cork board above it will be moving.
Finally it is hard to believe this thing still works after the shaking, turning upside down, and jamming of card stack through the paper feed.
I finally forgive cannon for the camera that never worked again following a very careful trip to the beach. A grain of sand gave rise to a lens problem that cost as much as a new camera.

THANK YOU GUYS SOOO MUCH!!!!

Had this printer for 2 years now. After one month suffered from the exact same problem and just could not be bothered to do anything about it.

Tonight I decided to have a shot at fixing it and... ALLELUIA!

Tried shoving card through the printer and POP... out comes a BB gun pellet!!! My prayer came true. I finally got it fixed. One of the best days of my life.

Posted on Apr 10, 2008

I once had a similar problem a few months ago and I tried EVERYTHING I could do (Without shaking the printer, I was scared to do that) nothing worked, till I actually got up on a chair and looked into my printer (It is up on a rise above my computer) and there was a push pin sitting in the feeder opening! (Remove pushpin = then it was fine)

Then it started doing it AGAIN yesterday at a time when I really needed my printer, and this time there was no obvious pushpin or any obvious obstruction. I read all the stories here and thought *WOW they had things that far in there?!" So I tried harder and FINALLY after opening the back panel I saw with a flashlight there was a FROOTLOOP (I don't even HAVE any frootloops in my dorm! XD) jammed in the right side inside it! With a chopstick I was able to get it out and now it's fine again. OMG.

But yea, things like to get stuck in printers I guess. XD

Posted on Apr 02, 2008

Thank you! Pushed a piece of card through and out came a false nail.

Yah the paper feed and jam on the right side only was really getting to me too. The first time I thought it worked itself out. But this time after much suffering I checked this site and found that it maybe a good idea to check that something maybe stuck inside. I shook it, gave it to my husband to shake it, did everything but throw it down and stomp on it. Was starting to think that it was simply broken and bin-ready when I peered inside as far as I could. That's when I saw it. A little gift left by my 20month old wedged as far inside as it could possibly go. Must have come lose from the shaking. Finally got it out and the printer is working as good as new. My expert solution to fix printer? Get big fat pencil out of said printer.

Before you turn the printer upside down and shake you had better take out the ink cartridges.

LOL !!! ... It works, mine is fixed too !!!

Man, you should setup a tech service center for printer troubleshooting.

Turn it upside down ... shake it .... force paper down into the feeder .... feed cardboard into printer .... do a bit of vacuuming .... and viola ... presto .... it works. Brilliant.

I couldn't believe what the solution was to this problem until i tried it myself.

Thanks !

Posted on Oct 14, 2007

I LOVE YOU! Thank you sooooo much! I was just on the point of going out to buy another printer, but this worked brilliantly! (embarrasingly enough mine happened to be jammed by a stray sweet wrapper, so thats the last time i put anything on top of it..) Again, thank you!

Posted on Jul 25, 2007

Putting a thicker paper through the 3rd time pulled out the object that was causing my miss feed...a foam flying disk. This worked on my Canon i860!

I've had this error for the last 2 months and periodically tried to fix it. - I finally read a suggestion to try to push something thicker than a plain sheet of paper through. I cut a side of a manilla folder into a 8.5"x11" and let the printer try to grab it during a copy. After doing it's normal "grab the right side until it's skewed and stop", I continued to try to push it through. I wasn't able to push it to the printing area, but I saw that a piece of something (not much bigger than a bread crumb) came out of the feeder into the interior print area. - I tried another copy, and it was very slightly improved but still skewing and jamming the paper. Suggest unplugging it before performing this...I then lifted the interior piece of plastic (white color for my Pixma MP 150 - which would be located above the paper as it was fed into the print area) slightly to allow any jammed items to come through. Out comes small pieces and then a larger piece of cracker (about the size of 1/4 a cheez-it). Ok I feel dumb, but I'm glad I found something. I picked out the crumbs and did a careful vacuum in the interior and exterior paper feed. Slight warning: The foam bottom below the ink is not secured and will get sucked up by the hose. And note, that I did try vacuuming the intake and interior previously with no improvement. The nozzle on my vacuum is too large to get into the bottom of the exterior intake. - For good measure, I also picked up the printer and turned it upside down and shook vigorously in a couple angles. I saw a couple more small crumbs come out. - My printer is now feeding the paper correctly and successfully made a copy/print.

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.

Hi,

If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):
Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. If that works, then try to print the self test page.

Begin by disconnecting the power supply from the wall (not the back of the printer) for at least "30 seconds." This is essential. Then plug the printer back in and follow these steps:
1. Press the "Copy" button.
2. Press the "Menu" button.
3. Press the down arrow button once or until the screen displays "Maintenance."
4. Press the check mark button to select the "Maintenance" menu.
5. Press the down arrow button three times until the screen displays "Print Test Page."
6. Press the check mark button to select this. The Self-Test will start printing.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously.) Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let me know.

Check the adjustments for the paper your using. Open the printer and look on the rollers you'll probably find paper or an obstruction clear it and also clean then rubber moving parts with isopropyl alcohol to give them their grip back.

Paper feed grabs more than one sheet


Try fanning your paper several times. Take that nice neat pile of paper in your hands and wiggle it so that your thumb fans through the edge of the whole stack. Do this on both edges so that the stack of paper is slightly less perfect. You can also gently fold the whole stack slightly in both directions. Do this every time you add fresh paper. It should only take a few seconds.
