Paper wont feed propaly

The paper is feeding wonky! the roller is on the right is pulling the paper to the right but there is nothing to pull the paper on the laeft side so it is not feeding and I cannot print anything. Brand new printer has worked last 4 times of printing. Help! Thanks I have the same problem with a Canon MP520, of pulling the paper in on the right and not the left. It just started happening and I have been through the cleaning procedure a few times and it doesn't look like anything is jammed. What else can be done. I need to print bad!

It sounds like the motor on the left side went out. If it's a brand new printer your best bet would probably be exchange it at the store or see if the manufaturer has a warrenty. If it's an older printer I probably wouldn't try to get it repaired, printers are getting cheaper these days and it probably wouldn't be much more to get a new one.

Have you tried flipping your machine over and shaking it? Sometimes it only takes a little "something" to fall into their and block the paper feed so the machine ends up dragging one corner down instead of the whole page.

SOURCE: paper wont feed propaly

Toss the canon. Mine last two have died like that... one after 1.5 years, this newest 4300Pix after only a few months. Starts to feed the paper crooked, seems like there is a jam, but never one, no paper jammed. Product control is terrible with most printers now.

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Take one of those flat plastic rulers and push it through all over.. so that any forein ripped paper whatever, clears the way.. The paper is supposed to buckle on entry.. That's how it's designed. It could be a timing issue.. when the paper is fed in it buckles against the timing roller.. the roller turns only when its supposed to. Each sheet stays buckled against the timing roller until it turns, that's how the machine draws only one piece at a time. It's could be the feed clutch.. There's a little magnetic clutch that actuates the feed roller to pull the paper in. when this feed clutch gets weak it barely works or it slips and doesn't pull the paper in at the right time. I've replaced these often on my equipment.. but I've also found that static electricity plays a big role. If your area is too dry, the paper sticks together increasing the resistance, pulling either multiple pages or just too much resistance for the feed rollers.. screwing up the time.. Make all adjustments to the feed rollers first to ensure it's not a huge problem before you start looking for a clutch. Essentially if the paper doesnt make it into the feed roller on time it is a timing issue.. but it's starting from the feed rollers.

Lexmark z2300 printer won't pull in 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. (On the X83, press the Select 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.

Paper won't feed


Pull out the paper tray and push the paper feed roller towards the machine. Try to turnaround the paper feed roller by hand. Reinsert the paper tray.

Paper wont feed propaly


Something probably fell into that tiny pinch of an area where the paper goes. I have found everything from a Tostito crumb to a chip of drywall blocking my paper feed. Flip your machine over, poke it if you have to, and shake it around til the little bugger falls out.
