SOURCE: Canon PC920 paper feed "clacking" & not working.

check the tray and make sure the guides are set correctly, clacking sound is usually because the tray is set for Legal and has Letter, the paper is towards the bac of the tray and the pick up assembly is making the noise,
otherwise the tray is either not going up (broken gear, )

SOURCE: my Canon PC735 copier turns off after it grabs the paper.

Main lamp is most likely burned out or is shorting.
You can google it and find a replacement bulb. Not too difficult to replace. Remove the top cover and glass. Make sure your hands are very clean or use a clean cloth to handle the new bulb.

SOURCE: canon pc 420 paper feeds only part way

check to see if one of the sensors flags has not fallen out. there will be a sensor just before where the paper stops and one just half way along the paper it sounds as the paper is not getting to a sensor in time that is why it is throwing up a jam code

SOURCE: my canon printer/copier does not feed paper in

1. Try cleaning the paper feed rollers

Instructions how to clean the paper feed rollers.
If the paper feed rollers become dirty, they may not be able to properly feed paper due to the feed roller's slippage.
If paper does not feed correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:

  1. Open the Printers folder.

    - For Windows XP Home Edition : Click/Select 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.

    - For Windows XP Professional Edition : Click 'Start' and 'Printers and Faxes.'

    - For Windows Vista : Click 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Hardware and Sound,' and 'Printers.'

    - For Windows 2000 : Click/Select 'Start,' and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
  2. Right-click the icon of the printer for paper feed roller cleaning, and select 'Properties' from the displayed list.
  3. Click the 'Maintenance' tab and click 'Roller Cleaning'.

    Remove all sheets of paper from the rear tray, then click 'OK'.
  4. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.
    Note: Clicking 'OK' will activate the paper feed rollers 30 times. This activation will take about 90 seconds. Do not perform other operations until this operation has finished.
  5. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.

    After the continuous paper feeding operations in step 5 have finished, load three sheets of plain paper and click 'OK'.


  6. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.

    Note: “Feed roller cleaning is completed” message is displayed when the paper is fed and ejected.

    Click 'OK'.
Roller Cleaning is completed.

SOURCE: canon pc 430 feeder problem

You may have to fabricate a new anchor for one end of the spring on the side opposite the control panel. There is a wimpy plastic tab that breaks off here, right next to a black Phillips-head screw. Remove this screw and bend a piece of light wire around it, leaving a small hooked end sticking out for the spring to fasten on to. Replace the screw and install the spring. When you install the spring, it must go over the top of the tiny white plastic wheel, in the U-shaped groove.

This is how I repaired my PC430 several years ago and it's still working fine.

Canon Mp550 paper jam


If the paper is not being picked up from the tray assembly try applying mild soap to a soft cloth and clean the paper pick up rollers. Do not use rubbing alcohol because it will dry the rubber out so later they won't pick up at all

Canon ip2600 won't feed paper


I fixed mine!! I cut a letter size paper in half lengthwise (so it was skinny and long). Held the printer on my lap with both top and bottom trays open. I noticed the white pegs and skinny black roller inside were turning when I turned it on, so I waited til they were spinning and slid the paper between them along the right side. (Kind of a reverse feed). Had to do it between the crazy ink returns. Yes, the paper crumpled a little, and I did it a couple of times with a couple of papers. Something gave, because after that it started feeding properly again!

My canon pixma mx320 won't feed paper properly it seems to grab one side of paper and feeds it crooked then stops


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.
