Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The paper has just decided to stop feeding now. It only pulls from the right corner side (looking at the printer) and then gets jammed. I have only printed 3 or 4 pages on this thing, so I can't believe it is jamming already. Do I need to clean something out? Or is this a return it for the warranty issue.
Ran my costco membership card through the left side and a wad of paper popped out. I was pissed until I jabbed the card through. Just take your credit card/plastic card and jab it through the slot til it pokes through the white rollers inside. Slide it from side to side and jab up and down til whatever the thing is pops out. Hope it helps! it saved me from failing a paper!

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Yesterday someone replied to my problem, i tried it this morning and its fixed 1st time.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

I had the same problem, and after reading the solutions from this website, I figured out what to do. I turned the printer upside down and saw that there was a AA battery stuck inside. It wasn't stuck in a visible area, so I didn't know at first, but after I removed the battery, the printer worked fine.

I had the same feed problem and based on the advise given here, I used a piece of card stock (thick paper like you use to make business cards). I sent something to print and pushed on the card stock until it finally pulled thru, clearing whatever it was that was blocking the paper on the rollers.
Printer works fine again!

I had the same problem. Paper only pulls from the right corner side. There was something stuck on the left side. I couldn't see it but it made sense. I ended up putting a card and rotating the mechanisism reverse and a plastic part came out. Thanks for helping.

Try putting a credit card through the top where the paper goes. Then see if you can push the credit card through to dislodge whatever paper/material is stuck. The credit card should come out where the paper normally comes out, along with whatever was stuck in your printer.

I had the same problem, so i was just toying with my printer and i saw a goldfish cracker sticking out of the paper feed, so i turned the printer upside down and picked it out. and presto it took paper in again! so try tilting your printer upside down and maybe something lodged in the paper feed will fall out

Before returning it, look for something, anything lodged in the paper path. A small piece of paper, staple, or something broken off from the printer itself. Otherwise, if you find nothing, return it.

Thank goodness everyone shared how they fixed it! The first thing I did was turn my printer upside down and out fell a tiny strap that broke off my camera case! Thanks for all the help!
