SOURCE: Hi there
This printer comes with major paper feeding problems, even on the FAQ
for this printer on HP's website paper feed problem is the number 1
FAQ. It either misfeeds or won't feed paper. An average example is if
you try to print a 6 page report, it will missfeed about 10 sheets to
print 6, and you will spend a lot of time pushing the paper feed button.
Following the guidlines in HP's faq about this does nothing to improve the situation. HP basically denies any problem with the printer and wants the consumer to pay to ship and have the printer fixed, even if it is new. They will give you phone calls and emails with a lot of PR babble, but do nothing. Stay away from this piece of junk, HP is aware there are major paper feed problems, does nothing about them, and doesn't take it off the market.

After talking for many minutes (thank you Skype!) to the Epson service guy I am now able to load a roll of canvas. The trick is that the paper must be firmly against the right side (looking from the front) of the feed slot and must have some slack going in. The only way I can accurately meet these conflicting requirements is to put the roll in the roll guides on the table behind the printer and feed the paper into the slot holding it on both edges. When the paper is blocked be sure to pay attention to the right side and have it as firmly as possible agianst the right side of the slot and push enough into the slot so that it bowes up a bit. You will feel the printer gently grab the paper. Immediately let go, don't fight it.
I leave the roll on the table, but after this point you probably can mount it on the back if you need to.
In case it is not clear: after printing tapping the roll botton will mark the cut line and feed the paper out. After cutting tapping the button again will roll it back for the next print. Holding the roll button will eject the papaer out the back.

SOURCE: my roller dont take in the paper
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.

I had the same problem, same printer. So with a little checking I found a solution. The paper has to be fed through the single page paper feeder. (See manual to setup. Can be downloaded from Epson.) Select manual/roll in the page setup section when you're ready to print. For instance, I was using 8.5 X 11 velvet, so select letter > then subset of roll/manual. After doing this velvet and other specialty paper profiles were selectable.
