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

1 Answer

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!

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

I have a HP LaserJet 5P. This has been a great printer with excellent print quality. Recently I printed a file that had a lot of dark background. Since then the printer output has a spattered black...


Geez, a real oldie.
If you pull down the back door, I think that you can see the fuser.
It's been a long time, but let's see how this goes. The back of the fuser, I think pulls down.
If it does, look at the rollers inside. There are two of them. Do they look dirty or torn?
If yes, you need a fuser.
Run a 1/2 print test. Send a print job to the printer. It has to be about 4 pages. Use the manual feed tray, so that you can watch. When the sheet of paper gets 3/4 of the way in, open the top cover. Pull out the toner and look down at the paper. Does it have the black splatter?
If yes, replace the toner cartridge. If no, replace the fuser.

My hp1012 is printing dark with shading on the pages and shadow or echos. Can something be replaced or fixed?


with this issue, you pretty much have to run a half way test unless you have the convieniance of another toner to try. basically, it's either going to br your toner or your fuser and a halfway test will determine this if you don't have another toner to try.

The Half-way Test

You will need to print a page and open the toner lid when you think the paper is underneath the toner cartridge. This will stop the printing so you can pull the toner cartridge out and look at the partially printed paper. It may take a few tries to time this test correctly so the paper stops under the toner but not completely into the fuser.
1. Print a test page from Tray 1, the "fold-down" Multi-Purpose tray on your printer.
2. Just as the test page completely disappears into the printer, open the toner lid door. The print job will stop, sensing an error.

3. Pull the toner cartridge out, and you will find the test page sitting directly underneath the toner.
4. Carefully remove the page by gently pulling the page upwards & free from the toner cavity. Careful! The toner has not yet been fused to the paper, so the print can be somewhat messy on your hands and may smudge easily.

Examine the printout.
1. If you do not see the print defect on your test page, that means the defect is being added later in the print process by the fuser. Fusers are the main component in a maintenance kit; click here to view our selection of maintenance kits for various LaserJet printers.
2. If the print defect is visible on this printout, that means the print defect is occurring before the fuser. Try replacing the toner cartridge (click here to view our selection of toner cartridges).
If you determine the print defect is occurring before the fuser, and swapping toners doesn’t fix the problem, there could be several things causing the problem. In the order of most likely to least likely: you could have two defective toner cartridges, the transfer roller might be faulty, the laser scanner could be dirty or defective, or the high voltage power supply could be bad. You might want to email or call since these scenarios are not as common.

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.

Samsung CLP-300 Laser Printer


Try changing the printer toner cartridge first if not make sure that the paper of where the paper is stuck if under the toner cartridge check that there if there is any print on it and that it is entering the fuser section. If it has stopped at the fuser section then the possibility is that the fuser drive gear is broken or some teeth missing. If the paper is stuck before the toner cartridge then there maybe the pickup tyre dirty and not feeding correctly the other thing there maybe a sensor arm stuck down.

Try the above
