Pick it up and shake it around to see if you can move the pen around or shake it out.. that's the best and only way you are going to get it out if possible.. i don't think you want to take it in for diagnosis, it will cost you..

good luck, d

Jam E normally cause by the paper path sensor came off during when you clear a paper jam.. the sensor is located at middle side , to fix it back you will need to remove the E cover..and remove the transport unit...4 screws.. but putting it back will need to have some technical know how as fitting it back wrongly will cause you unit not able to feed paper due to the plastic blocking the paper path.
Will upload some instruction later...

Dropped pen into lint trap. Now Dryer makes a screeching noise.

The pen has fallen into the blower housing and is hitting the fan blades.

Unplug the dryer!! Remove the two screws at the top of the lint trap. Remove the rear panel. Remove the four screws at the bottom that attach the lint filter housing to the blower housing. Then, remove the pen from the blower housing.

Paper jams galore!!!

Every time I see that it's just something that fell into the back slot. Sometimes screws, candy wrappers, pens, push pins. That printer just doesn't do that without something falling in. One person shook it upside down and a BIC pen fell out. Check inside the back before you pay expensive repairs. I charge $69.00 to remove whatever is in there.

Printer has been working fine. all of a sudden the paper started to load crooked and jammed. now it continues to do this...why?

Usually it's because something has fallen down the back where the paper goes. One person on here turned her printer upside down and shook it and a Bic pen fell out. I got one last week with a wood screw inside. sometimes I find push pins, candy or jewelry. If nothing comes out try looking inside with a light and small mirror.

The paper will not feed on the left side

Every time I see these I find pens, candy, clips, other objects have fallen down the back where the paper goes. One lady picked up her printer, turned it upside down and shook it and a bic pen fell out, It worked fine after that.

My canon PIXMA MP190 All in one Injet Printer won't feed the paper through. It pulls to the right side and then bunches up. I've cleaned everything and even tried pushing cardstock through. It seems like...

Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down where the paper goes in the back, usually something has fallen in where it shouldn't be. A lady last week turned her printer upside down and shook until a bic pen fell out.I find pins, paper clips, toys, or gum inside. That one roller us usually enough.

Paper won't feed into printer. Always gets jammed

you must have objects foriegn objects inside your printer. i.e. paper clip or some other object . Get your printer and move it side to side see if you can here anything moving about. once its out then perform alignment of rollers using epson maintenance menu.

Paper feed problem.

I have just removed the panel where the power and USB cable lock into. It's a case of 1 screww from the rear and 2 catchs underneath the printer. From there you should be able to see the mechanism for the roller, a set of small white cogs. below that you should be able to see a very small spring which is acting as the pressure. Mine was still attached but as you say was pulling no pressure on the roller what so ever.

Find yourself a large-ish rubber band and slip the band over the whole mechansim. Best way is through the paper feed slot, slip it over the roller and then move it through to the area where you removed the panel. Position the rubber band as far down the cogs as possible, don't worry the cog casing prevents the band interfearing with the cogs. Now pull the band reasonably tight and with the other hand test the pressure of the roller. Adjust till you feel OK with it. Now put the panel back in with the end of the rubber band trapped and poking out from the panel behind the printer, holding it in place. Redo the screw and give it a try.

My first attempt found it a bit too restrictive and feeded to sheets at a time but adjusted it once and its back to normal. I know its a bodge but its a cheap one and it uses a rubber band, just how I fixed my Punto's windscreen wiper, £120 part or a rubber band once a month... Mmmm...

Printer pulling on paper

My husband took the top cover off the printer and took a good look inside with a flashlight. He found a hot pink crayon stuck where the paper feeds through. I guess I should have had a better look initially, since the paper never made it all the way through the printer. Works like a charm now!!
