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.
I had the same paper feed grabbing problem on pixma MP 610 printers - take a flashlight and look down into the feed rollers inside - deep - I found a paperclip in one and a hair clip in another - you need a pair of very fine pincer pliers to extract so you dont damage the roller assembly's made of plastic - and voila no more misfeeds and grabbing on the right side - hint - dont put anything on top of the printers because when you lift the scanner cover, it nicely slides anyting on top into the paper feed assembly and results in a jam
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.
