    When I pulled out a paper that got stuck at the front of the Canon Printer Pixma ip6600D, a long grey sponge came out and are hanging out infront of the printer

  • veradt Feb 09, 2009

    Thank you, but the sponge is hanging halfway out, so how do I put it back? It will tear if I pull it out because it is stuck, and I do not know where it belongs.

    if you take it apart be carefull as you may do more damage but it should go under the ink return ( where the print head returns to ) or under the paper out slot ...or at the back of the printer under the paper in slot ...it is in a diferent place for each printer but the basics of a printer are the same...



    what colour is the sponge and how old is your printer as most carry a 1 year fix guarantee..just get in touch with the printer company or where you got it from ....don't make any difference if you have used it....



    if the sponge is white then it is the blotting sponge ...under print head..

    if its any other its the overspill ink sponge ....both you could work without...

    i have taken so many printers apart and its very very dirty job if you get ink on your hands ..it stains and lasts for about a week ....go carefull ....



    thats all i know ..hope this helps ...jedi-inc...

Canon pixma mp495 rear tray rollers only pulls paper in on one side then it jams


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or sticky rollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces of paper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these pieces of paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper to not feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

My canon pixma MP210, is not feeding the paper through, seems to jam, but printer still is printing. The paper is taken about 10cms into printer, then twists slightly but does not fee through. Have checked...


There is a foreign object in the paper tray. Because it is curved you cannot see it. It is stuck in the narrowed area right before the feeding rollers.
Disconnect the cables and rotate the printer in a way it stands on its back.
Open the front cover. Use long thin flat screw driver that can go trough the paper out area and to reach the feed roller.Insert the screw driver between each pressure roller and the the feed roller to release the object. If successful it will fall out from the tray. Usually it's a coin, pen, point-protector, ruller, paper clip and so on.

A piece of foam sponge under the ink catridges has broken, and the printer will not cleanly draw paper for printing - it jams.


The sponge under the print cartridges is to soak up the ink when cleaning the print heads. If part of it broken off and lodged in the rollers where the paper is drawn into the printer then try to locate the sponge and remove it. Sounds like it's lodged somewhere and jamming the paper feed.

Paper will not feed inti printer


The sensor that detects paper (most cases just a small lever that is pushed up by paper in the tray) isn't engaging. It could be that the paper is not fully inserted, or sometimes in a paper jam, people pull the jammed page out backwards, bending or dislodging the lever. Very common in back-fed printers and shredders.

Sometimes just a visual inspection with a bright light source can show the problem. Be careful not to turn the printer on its side or upside down for any length of time. Inkjet printers usually use a sponge for excess ink discharged during the cleaning process and that can run out and seriously gum up the works, electronics, carpet, and whatever else you really don't want it to.

Error E3 when no paper jam


MP160 PIXMA paper feed jam E3 error. I completely solved this on my Canon MP160 printer but it is a common problem and the fix may work for others such as MP130 MP140 MP145 MP150 MP170 or MP180. With the problem I had, the printer would make the usual motor whirring noises but would not feed the paper. The usual c-clunk sound that indicated the feed roller has been engaged was not there. The screen warning said to remove jammed paper and the printer showed an E3 error.

The problem was caused by the ink cartridge carrier becoming stcky on its track and not fully returning to the rest position on the right side (as viewed from the front). The fix involved taking the printer apart and lubricating the cartridge carrier track and the ramps that lift the cradle that rises to cover the printheads. Unfortunately you have to dismantle the printer and separate the scanner unit to get to the lubrication points. Its not a quick fix.

When you have the printer apart you will see a prominent white lever held by a coiled spring just behind the rest position of the ink cartridge carrier. The lever is actuated by the ink cartridge carrier when it moves to the right. If the lever is not actuated, the motor drive will never engage the large grey feed roller and the paper in the hopper cannot be fed into the printer. Make sure to also put some lube onto the lever at the point where it is struck by the ink cartridge carrier.

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Paper jam


I had this problem the other day. I turned out that I had a small bit of polystyrene foam had got trapped just before the white plastic rollers you can see in front of the toner sponge where the cartridge head runs when you lift the lid to change ink.

I discovered it by noting that on power-up these rollers turn as if to feed paper back into the paper feeder (i.e. "backwards through the printer"), so I tried to see if I could get a sheet to feed backwards and noticed something was trying to stop the right-hand side of the paper feeding in. Soon after I noticed the bit of foam through the right-hand side slot in the white plastic section above the roller. A quick removal with small tweezers et viola!
