SOURCE: My printer won't feed the paper through. the

One common cause of paper feed issues is a build up of dust on the printer's rear paper feed roller. This roller consists of a plastic axle white roller. This is located in the automatic sheet feeder and is referred to as the "Pick Roller." As dust builds up on the rubber rollers, they become less tacky and therefore unable to grab a single sheet of paper.
To prevent and/or cure this type of paper feed problem, these rubber rollers should be cleaned.

Unplug the printer's power cord and remove the paper from the automatic sheet feeder. Please remove the paper access door from back of the printer and clean the white rollers inside with a cloth dampened with warm water (be sure there is no excess water on the cloth as it may drip into the machine). After these are free of any dust, close the paper access door. Reload the paper and plug the power cord back in. The paper should then feed normally. 

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:


1. Turn the printer ON.
2. Press the down arrow button till the screen displays “Maintenance". . 
3. Press the "Check" button. 
4. Press the "Down arrow" button till the screen displays “Print Test Page.” 
5. Press the "Check" button.


The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed.  If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed by itself. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.


If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

SOURCE: paper jam! paper begins to feed then goes crooked

Please do all the things that you can do before you consider buying a new printer. You can take your printer into a service repair center or computer repair center in your place. If there is nothing that they can do then you can take an option of buying a new one.

Crooked feeder paper


Sounds like the rubber rollers that grab the paper are dirty, and one is not grabbing well. Clean them, and your paper will probably feed correctly.

My pro 9000 isnt picking up the paper from the auto feed area? any answers for this


Try cleaning your printer roller. You can do it through computer program or manually. See also if your gear is properly fitted or jammed this might be the reason why it won't feed the paper.

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers
haitchhcee
p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

Doesn't feed the paper in evenly and so it scrunches up to the right and goes crooked, and then jams.


mine did that and I had to clean the feeder wheels to get it to grab the paper.. I use rubbing alcohol to get the grime off...

Paper feeder is not straight


Push the copy button with the cover up and no paper on the glass. Is the light bar straight up and down, or is it crooked? I can't imagine how paper could go thru the machine crooked, but check it out if you can. If the paper is too thin, it may not be getting grabbed by the rollers right.

Printer feeds in 2 or 3 sheets of paper at a time and then jams


Dears eveenz,
It seems that paper feed roller of your printer is broken. This part is integrated in drive assy. You need to replace drive assy of the printer in order to feed the paper properly. I plan to discuss this topic at Inkjet Printer Forum since I cannot post image more than 150 kb here. Explanation with image will make you know more easily. Please send me your mail to ijxpert@gmail.com so I can contact you as soon as I finish my post there.
Please rate me when you find this answer be useful for you

Dimantle my canon pixma ip3000


I had this problem yesterday with my iP3000, but it turned out to be my own fault. I had randomly pushed the control panel buttons, as I tend to do that with printers, while I was trying to quickly cancel a print job.

The symptoms:
roller wouldn't advance, a lot of noise like it was trying to advance, then two yellow light error flashes. I knew it wasn't out of paper.

By randomly pushing buttons, I clicked the Paper Feed Switch which toggled from top sheet feeder to cassette.

I downloaded the e-user's guide from Canon and learned what those control buttons are. I simply clicked the Paper Feed Switch and it toggled back to top sheet feeder. That fixed it for me.
