I would check the paper path on the printer where it is crinkling the paper. More than likely there is some small piece of paper or something that is causing it. Does it only do this out of quicken? I wouldn't think so if the paper comes out damaged....

When I hit print when the paper starts to feed the pushbar paper feed does so fast causing the paper to start slightly off caqusing a paper jam.. Is there anyway to adjust the feed


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

The paper does not feed correctly so that the paper goes into the machine crooked causing a paper jam.

I am using Canon Pixma MP145. Paper gets jammed every time i want to print. Paper gets pulled in only from right side and it gets jammed, but printer does't show any error. I have to pull the paper...

Magicolor 5440dl manual feed jams paper as it feeds into printer. paper gets about half way. paper is not smashed or crinkled.


If the paper was damaged we can presume that there is a blockage, however your jam sounds like the paper is not in the expected position at the expected time (ie a sensor is not reporting that a peice of paper has reached it) so this can be cased by

1. rollers slipping on the paper from
a/ slippy media - try a different paper (even as a test)
b/Build up of paper dust on the rollers- If you can see the roller, power off and wipe with cloth
c/ Roller ware - If you can see the roller and have a mild abreahisive like wire woll If you can see the roller and give the rollers a rub

2. Sensor failure-Try Powering off then unplug wait 2 minutes and then power back up, this will reinitilise a sensor

Manually feeding paper


Even if manual feeding is an option the paper must be able to fit the paper tray in order to feed it through the printer.

Paper tray does not feed at all or may jam several papers


The rubber wheels that feed the paper in can be too soft to grip the paper.
After a long dicussion with the help desk, HP supplied me with a special Paper Feed Cleaning Kit for the 3200 series. This comprises a scraper device that you insert into the paper feeder, and a driver CD. I had to use it three times, Now everything woerk fine.

Good luck!

Paper jam


I tried the Cleaning Kit HP sent me. At the time they didn't mention that it required a direct USB hookup rather than the Network setup I was using.

Another user suggested using Lighter Fluid sprayed on the defective (too hard) paper feed wheels. Crazy solution? Lighter Fluid is mainly Naptha which the user claims softens rubber.

I tried it last night and waited for the fluid to evaporate before plugging the printer in. I really expected the darned thing to go up in flames so I had a pot of water and a blanket nearby as a fire precaution.

Much to my surprise .. the PSC 3210 has been feeding sheets perfectly for the past two days! This is after sitting in a HOT attic abandoned for over a year! I had to replace one ink cartridge which had dried out completely.

I don't know how long this "fix" will continue working but Lighter Fluid is cheap. The PSC 3210 is a quality printer WHEN it prints. It's too bad HP created so much bad will in its customer base because of defective rubber paper feed wheels. I've avoided purchasing HP products for two years now and have warned others to stay away because of this fault with customer service. Instead of replacing the defective rollers in my original printer, they exchanged the printer for a refurbished printer with the same defective rollers!

Paper will not feed correctly, keeps jamming up.


There IS something stuck in the feed path. If the paper starts to feed and then crinkles on the feed side, there is an object stopping the paper moving forward.

Lay the machine on it's back and take a sheet of very stiff card (A5 size approx) and push it through the paper path in reverse. So start where the paper would normally exit and push the card in. You may need to lift the pinch rollers just behind the print head by hand to aid the card through. Keep the card to the side that would normally crinkle but beware of the paper sensor flag. If you force it you could break it off.

Once you get past the pinch rollers behind the print head, push a little further then start to move the card in and out but along the length of the rollers. You should find that sufficient to push out whatever is in the path and having the machine on it's back will help it fall clear of the feed mechanism.

If it does not fall out using this method you will have to remove the covers and try to remove the ASF to get at the object.
