Problems with paper feeder-wont feed through-chews up paper
My paper feeder in my canon pixma 130 has stopped working-paper goes in and is chewed up almost at once-printer doesnt feed paper through-just keeps bringing up 'paper jam' It was working fine up until today-tried using photocopier and the result is the same-paper just wont feed through
Re: problems with paper feeder-wont feed through-chews up...
I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM A MONTH AGO. I LOOKED WHERE THE PAPER LOADS AND THERE WAS A PAPER CLIP JAMMED IN THERE. I HAD A HECK OF A TIME GETTING TO IT, BUT I DID. AND IT WORKS FINE. MAYBE SOMETHING IS THERE.

Look for possible dirt or sticky material in the roller. use some methy spirit to clean the rollers that take up the paper.
Check if there is any paper stuck on to the rollers, if so remove and clean.
Check if there is any wearing of the rollers, alignment of the rollers.
Finally use printer paper as thin paper might be chewed in.
Hope you check with my advice.
Most printers now are made of plastics and very light…when you store your printer in hot enclosed place that will affect the printer, and you can see the result on the prints, paper feeds, etc.you need to clean the printer if you did not used for over one week by conducting software head cleaning and open the door for the paper feeder and clean all around the inside…you have a jammed paper in the back that push the feeder out from the track and end up been shredded, make sure that all the doors closed very good and that the paper tray has the side track very close to the paper from the sides so the papers do not move side way when they go inside the feeder…Let me know if this what you are looking for, and please rate my service so I am able to continue serving everyone and improve on it.
I had identical prob with a PIXMA IP4000. Eventually solved by turning upside down removing bottom feeder tray and gaining access to the four rubber rollers which pick up the paper. I rubbed each one with light sandpaper to roughen up the rubber, turning each one by hand trying to try to abrade all the surface. It did the trick.
