I had identical prob with a PIXMA IP4000. Eventually solved by turning upside down removing bottom feeder tray and gaining access to the four rubber rollers which pick up the paper. I rubbed each one with light sandpaper to roughen up the rubber, turning each one by hand trying to try to abrade all the surface. It did the trick.

I had a similar problem with my iP4000. I discovered that something ( a small chain) had fallen inside the printer where the paper loads. Took a while to fish out, but it worked like new afterwards.

Ip5000 printer worked perfectly but now comes up with three orange lights stating a paper jam. There is no jam. Shop says it is a timing problem but suggested a new printer. Paper roller keeps rolling...

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken .
Hope this will help or else you mother board has errrors.

My MP470 Pixma won't feed paper, it pulls right

Based on instructions from your website I pushed a letter sized piece of thin cardboard backwards through the paper feed rollers then shook the printer while holding it upside down. A Q tip fell out, problem solved.

Canon pixma mp150 saying paper jam but cant see one

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.

Canon Printer Problem : paper twists to right when loading

I find that having too much paper in the carrier can cause this problem.

Another tip I use is to fan the paper before putting it into the carrier and make sure the guides are guiding and not holding the paper, i.e. don't get them too wide or too narrow.
