Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Won't grab paper.

My MP160 started having problems grabbing the paper. Most times it won't grab it and the 'out of paper' message will appear. I usually have to try it over and over, while holding the paper 'just right' until it finally works.

Why does my printer grab several pages of paper at once instead of one?


The printer when it was cleaned for paper jam might have damaged paper rollers which picks the paper as the gap is increased due to paper pull.You can replace rollers then problem will be solved .

Won't load paper


Clean the paper feed with alcohol and a paper towel by rubbing and rotating the drum. Wait for it to dry completely then it should grab the paper. Also make sure paper is free from dust. Good luck!

There could be something blocking the paper path. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder. Make sure there are foreign objects or debris that could cause this problem.

My Epson 1290 (some years old) doesn't grab paper, especially good inkjet paper) properly. It passes straight through, prints on the roller, and/or I get messages saying the paper isn't loaded properly or...


That could be from the rubber rollers not being able to grip the paper. They get polished or shiney over time with use and age. Then they slip or pull incorrectly and you get your problems. There are other things that can cause this but nothing worth fixing.

Fixing the rubber rollers is easy. You need some ispropyl rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Make sure it is isopropyl type as this won;t attack other parts. Simpley wet the paper towel and wipe down the rubber rollers. You will see the rubber go from a dull shine to dull flat rubber. This takes off the buildup on the rubber and lets it grip again. Eventually the rubber will age harden and this trick won;t work but this can give you years more service.

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.

Printer will not feed paper / message E2 ...cannon pixma mp 160


don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
someone replied to my problem, i tried it and its fixed 1st time, for others its taken a few attempts and then worked..
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving PUSH it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now. hope this helps, let me know how you get on. Garty
