    I think the solution is for Canon to give us our money back.

    Seems like a number of Canon MF printers have this issue. Seems like it is usually caused by a software problem, not a hardware problem - so that could perhaps be the issue you are experiencing with your printer.

    I was able to find a download which fixed the problem with my MF5650.

    Don't download this, as it is not for your model MF5550, but I'm including it here as a reference - perhaps you can find something similar to suit your printer. Best of luck.

Constant Paper Jam

check the wheels that pick it from the tray.
If they feel smooth, try to put some tape on them and rip it back off.
This cleans the wheels. Also try a new pack of paper and check if it\'s set to plain paper and not to heavier or coated paper

Documate error 8


I am a Support Engineer with Xerox Scanners.

E8 is a Paper Jam error that could be caused by:
- paper crumpling during scan.
- paper is multi-feeding all at once instead of feeding separate.
- scanner continuously tries to feed after paper has fed through.

if the paper is crumpling during the scan, make sure the inside of the scanner is clear of any obstructions. use the paper guides in the ADF tray to keep the paper straight when feeding in.

if the paper is multifeeding while scanning, fan out the pages before inserting them into the scanner. if problem persists, try cleaning the rollers with rubbing alcohol and a lint free cloth.

if scanner tries to continually feed after the paper feeds through, the ADF tray will need to be reseated. open the scanner and remove the ADF tray at the top. line up the 4 keys at the bottom of the tray with the 4 corresponding key slots inside the scanner. push the tray back until it clicks into place.

We also have an extensive support site and knowledgebase at

My Konica Minolta bizhub C250 seems prints about every 10th page crinkled and crooked. I can hear it going through the machine and crushing a crease in the paper as it prints. The printed also seems to...

The paper may not be feeding straight out of the paper tray due to poor stacking of the paper in the paper cassette. try another paper tray or check the paper in the paper tray for folded over papers usually near the bottom. Also try feeding paper from the hand feed tray on the left side. This uses a different paper path.

Paper hangs up

Quite common for the paper feed rollers to wear out on this model.
Remove the paper tray, and look up under the printer where you took the tray from. You should see 2 black rubber 'wheels' feed rollers. They shold look flat black and feel 'grippy'
if they're shiny and smooth, they're stuffed. you will need to replace them . (A pair)

Check Rec Paper

First power off the machine. Facing the machine from the front, remove the rear tray extension that holds the paper and "feel your way" down into the right side of the of the back paper tray. You should feel a out-of-round feed roller. With a little effort you can rotate this around. Take a terry like cloth and dampen it with water and clean this roller. Before puttin any paper back into the tray, turn the machine back on so the paper feed assembly will return to the home position.

Paper not feeding

Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.
