Canon iP600D paper feed error or broken gear?

I own a canoniP6000D and it stopped feeding paper. It said on PC screen that it needs paper but it is there. I noticed a different noise when it tried to feed the sheets. It sounded like a mechanical malfunction with the gearing. I looked to see if anything fell into the feed area and saw nothing. I now have the unit apart and it looks like the large gear that drives the paper feed bar is loose but I can't see any broken parts. Does anybody have experience working on this problem. I am pretty good at repairing things.

Check the paper feed roller, it's posible to be worn. If it's worn out, you need to change it.
In know a trick than can help you temporarily, clean the roller with windscreen cleaning solution and a rag. (i make same trick with my copiers, and it's working)

All the best !

Canon MX360 shows code 6000. Have switched of printer and computer and the error is still there. What do i need to do?

sounds like the gearing is out of sync. When you remove debris did you force any of the geared rods? some times if a printer has been jammed by debris i.e. your paper clip, the gearing gets out of sync as gears jump teeth. In the past I've rectified this problem by rotating gearing manually. Its a hit and miss method. try it " WITH NO POWER " to the printer. Put a sheet of paper in tray and rotate gearing by hand and watch closely all movement, pick up rollers, paper feed, head movement path etc. you'll get a feel for it .
once you get paper feeding manually try it with power.
good luck.

Error 5700 on lcd screen tried turning it on and off problems not resolved,its only 6months old

5700 is an error in the paper feeder unit, could be a broken gear, or sensor. The only repair is to replace the sheet feed unit. Canon gives a one year warranty, should be repaired at no charge to you. 1800-OKCanon

Canon pc 420 paper feeds only part way

I had the same problem. I found a parts diagram here which showed that the springs hold the bar down. On mine, on each side, one of the spring tabs was broken.

I made a metal pin for one side and insert a screw on the other. Be sure and wrap the spring over the nylon bushing.

When I print on my Canon MP730, it always prints out a blank page after every print job. How can I fix this?

SOLUTION(S): Reset the Sheet Feeder Gears
If the power fails while the paper is feeding or during a print job, the paper feed gears will lose their proper
alignment. The reason is that after the power is restored the paper feed gears will attempt to return to the
home position, which may not be possible if the paper stop cam is not in the correct position.
1. Remove the sheet feeder from the unit.
2. Remove the sheet feeder motor from the sheet feeder assembly.
3. Remove the drive gear from its spindle.
4. Realign the lifting tray gear and paper stop cam gear.
5. Reinstall the drive gear and sheet feeder motor.
6. Reattach the sheet feeder to the print unit.
7. Reassemble the unit.

Canon PC920 paper feed "clacking" & not working.

check the tray and make sure the guides are set correctly, clacking sound is usually because the tray is set for Legal and has Letter, the paper is towards the bac of the tray and the pick up assembly is making the noise,
otherwise the tray is either not going up (broken gear, )
