Canon IP4000 won't grab the paper

Just all of a sudden the printer stopped grabbing the paper and can't deliver it into the printer, every once in a while I would get a "load paper" message. I don't know how to take it apart to see if it is a small motor problem or a roller problem or what. I really like this printer or I wouldn't mess with it ......... Dwight

If you take the paper out and the paper tray if possible and get some wd40 and a cotton pad or some pad to use to wipe the wd40 onto the rollers ( only a small amount as you dont want to drench the rollers with wd40 ) and let it dry out for a few mins and then try it again.

If its the rollers then that should help

Paper feeder grabs several pieces of paper at once


The spot in which the paper is fed into could have a fence/blocker. Use wood or a little hunk of aluminum to only allow 1 sheet. You could get fandy and use a rod that could also be mounted on the font.Be crea8tive and good luck.

My canon pixma mx320 won't feed paper properly it seems to grab one side of paper and feeds it crooked then stops


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

Hi - My daughters Canon MP 210 printer stopped pulling paper into the printer. I did not observe any spinning of the paper grab wheel therefore I'm wondering if a drive belt broke or something else is not...


hello there


you need to check the gear that trigger the paper to pull from the tray, if the gear is making a sound when you print then totally you need to open the gear coz it might be disconnected.



thanks

Not grabbing paper


Try cleaning the rollers again and fan the paper. When you clean the rollers, use alcohol and a lint free cloth. Don't put too many sheets in the feed tray.
