Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Printer does not fully pull paper...

Hi, my printer is being a real **** right now. It's not pulling paper correctly. Sometimes it pulls 3 or 4 pages and they sit there halfway down, not moving any further while the printer prints away onto nothing. When I only stick one sheet in, the sheet gets pulled halfway in and then stops while the printer prints away. Maybe you can help, thanks!

    I am experiencing the same problem described by you! It gets very annoying when that happens.

You probably need to clean the rollers that feed the paper. Check your manual or go to Cannon web site.

There is a paper jam...how do I unjam it


Hi dorothyhover,

Here's how you would clear paper jam from your Brother HL 1430:

1. Remove the paper cassette completely from the printer.

2.
Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

3.
Open the front cover and remove the drum unit assembly.

4. Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

Do not remove the drum unit assembly with additional force at this time if you cannot remove it easily. Instead, pull the edge of the jammed paper from the paper cassette.

5. Open the rear cover and pull the paper towards the back of the printer, the fuser may get dirty with toner powder and may result in toner scatter on the next printed page or pages. Print a few copies of the test page until the toner scatter on the printed pages clears.


6. Close the rear cover and install drum unit assembly, close the front cover.


Hope it helps.


Thank you for using Fixya.

My printer won't use regular paper


If there is nothing extra inside, like paper clips, candy, push pins, the roller that feeds the paper may be broken. Feel the rubber roller in the back that pulls paper in, if it flops up and down at all the end may be broken off and a dealer would need to replace it. Look real close with a flashlight and small mirror and see if something has fallen in where the paper goes.

Pulls in multiple sheets of paper


you must not use thin paper. you should use thick paper so that it will only pull one paper at a time...

More than one paper at a time


Are you saying that the printer pulls in too much paper at a time, or that it's actually printing on more than one page, even if you only want to do a single page? If it's pulling in too many pages, try fanning the paper. At times, especially in low humidity conditions, paper will tend to stick together and then several sheets get pulled into the printer. Fanning will often relieve the symptoms. Also make sure that the feed roller is clean. Use a cloth with some alcohol on it and rub the tire all the way around or as much as possible. See if that works.

Printer won't pull paper into printer


How long have you owned the printer. How long have you had this problem? Is the paper old? Sometimes storage of the paper causes humidity and can cause this problem. You might want to try newer paper or clean the rollers with some alcohol on a rag/cloth. If you need any other assistance let me know. If you have a moment to accept and rate my solution I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,
Lee

Problem seems to be in the design. The paper loading roller pulls on the corner of the sheet,cocking it to one side. If the paper was pulled in from the center of the sheet,it would be pulled in straight and evenly.

Epson Stylus CX4600 pulling paper in crooked


Hi, please check if there is a paper jam or any obstruction inside that printer. Check also the platen lever or the left edge guide, make sure that paper is loaded correctly. Try printing again. If issue still present. Your printer needs to be send to service center.

Print is not straight


It sounds like the paper is being pulled into the printer at a crooked angle. Check that the guides in the paper supply tray are adjusted correctly to the paper width and are tight against the stack of paper. Alternatively one of the rubber pinch rollers that pull the paper though is slipping or worn smooth. Regards
