Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

My Cannon i850 printer has suddenly stopped feeding the paper through the printer. I believe the tension on the feed rollers may have lost some of the pressure required to feed the paper. Are there tension springs or bands that need maintaince?

Try cleaning the rollers with a cloth dampened with alcohol. You may have dust on them and the alcohol will remove any dirt or glaze.

Always paper jam error on my cannon 3530


Check for a paper fragment at either end inside the printer chamber or underneath the paper feed roller cover plates. Anything that holds a paper feed sensor arm open will give you paper feed errors, and they can be remarkably small.

Cannon pc 921 won't feed paper from tray or bypass, shows P for out of paper but tray is full I can't find any jam


Try cleaning the feed roller using ammonia solution. The sizing used in the manufacturing of paper has waxy substances that accumulate in the pores of the rubber rollers and reduce the friction on the feed roller..

My canon i850 is blinking 3 orange lights at me and refusing to print. any ideas. tried turning on and off. removing print driver and re-installing thanks!


3 blinks is a line feed error, something stopping the platen roller from turning, look inside where the paper goes and see if something fell in like an ink pen, paper clip, just something that doesn't belong. The platen roller is the gray roller behind the carriage and sometimes you can see thru under the white plastic guides something jammed.

Paper feeds crooked, then stops. I can't find the users manual. Do I need to clean the rollers?


you may need to replace the rollers. if its feeding crooked it sounds like one of the rollers isnt grabbing which means its either worn or possibly a tension setting.

Canon i850 receives message that there is a paper


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Stuck paper in printer


the only solution for this is to dig it out

remove the paper feed cartridge, open the printer up and remove all corona wires, and anything that will slide out

look to see the feed rollers and try lifting on the rollers with your fingers to take any tension off of the top roller always try to remove the paper from the feed area slowly work the paper out if you still see small piece of paper try working them out with a stiff piece of index stock

avoid damaging the rubber rollers with a sharp object and by all means do not force the feed rollers they were designed to move in one direction..towards the copy area a pair of tweezers and hemostats work very well

the fact that the paper went in sideways lends me to believe you have a fed roller problem or an obstruction

once you clear the jam cean the feed rollers with soft cloth and alcohol



good luck

Paper Mis-Feeding


Check for any pieces of torn paper in the path, especially on the left side. You can also reach into the slot that the paper feeds into and feel each of the rollers behind the plastic cover; they all should turn freely, pay special attention to the wheel to the left.
