Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

1 Answer

Paper won't load. and Stops printing before it can start.

The printer starts normally. Loads. Even begins the printing process. I can hear the little motors and stuff working. But as soon as moment where the paper begins to feed the problem begins. The little roller things spin. But the paper won't load. The message remove the jammed paper pops up. But there is no paper jammed. That's about the sum of it. Any ideas?

    same with mine, tries to load on rt. side, nothing on left, resulting in a non-feed jam error..... cannot find anything obviously wrong... started after my last move & re-set up.

    Also VERY disappointed with cartridge life and related operating experiences.

    should I trash it & start over or is their something a illiterate can do to get things moving again?

Try turning the paper around. Some times the corners of the paper get slightly bent and the paper wont load.If turning the paper around does not work, switch your paper. Hope this helps.

My Lexmark Z2320 only printing pink.... 3/4 full black cartridge, and 1/2 full color cartridge. Why only printing pink....


If your printer is only printing one color, it is a clear sign that the printer is in need of a head cleaning, and possibly an alignment. The instructions to do so are as follows according to the Lexmark website:

  1. Load plain paper.
  2. Then do one of the following:
    - in Windows Vista, click pattlnk_852008_1527-vista-start-button.gif.
    - in Windows XP and earlier, click Start.
  3. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
  4. From the printer folder, click Maintenance - Align Cartridges.
  5. Click Print.
  6. Follow the instructions on the computer screen to finish

  1. Load plain paper.
  2. Do one of the following:
    - in Windows Vista, click pattlnk_852008_1536-vista-start-button.gif.
    - un Windows XP and earlier, click Start.
  3. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
  4. From the printer folder, click Maintenance - Clean Cartridges.
  5. Click Print. A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.
  6. Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
Complete both of these processes, and your printer should begin printing normally again.

BJC-85 Not printing. New BC-10 and BCI-10. Paper loads normally


The problem you are having is with the print head and not the printer. Unfortunately, with these canon print heads, they are not dated, so it is possible to install a print head that was bought new and sealed, but is still dried out because it is old.

Try running the print head through one deep cleaning cycle, this sometimes will start to get an old print head flowing.

Deep cleaning cycle can be found by going to PRINTERS , right clicking on the BJC icon, selecting PROPERTIES from the drop down menu, and then selecting the MAINTAINENCE tab.

Check to make sure that the ink tank in the print head isn't dry. Even a new print head can have a dry tank if it's old.

PAPER WON"T LOAD


The problem is software rather than mechanical operation. Uninstall the printer driver from the Add/Remove section of the Control Panel. Pull out the USB port and replace it back. This will prompt you pc to install the driver of the newly found hardware. Reinstall the printer driver. Should your printer be observed to have the usual problem, replace both cartridges with a one. "Loading paper" problem feedback is the same prompt as what you get when cartridges are old or refilled with unauthentic ink.

Paper jam


My CX3810 started doing the very same thing. To solve the problem, I un-plugged the printer, turned it upside-down (while holding the scan-bed cover closed) and shook the printer vigorously for a few seconds. Lo and behold, a small, white finishing nail, a peanut and a ball of fluff fell out of the slot where the paper loads. I sat it down, plugged it back in.... works flawlessly again. Hope this helps.
