Canon Pixma MX310: misfeeds

Canon Pixma MX310: paper begins to feed paper at an angle, then stops. I have cleaned the roller etc as advised in the manual, to no avail. I wonder if an objectmight be stuchk in the works, but don't want to dismantle, not knowing what I'm doing.

    Thanks - you were right, a little rubber disc from a stack of CDs stuckin the paper path. I freed it from the front with a piece of thin stiff card.

Hi Paper misfeeds are normally caused by something obstructing the paper path. Look really carefully both above and below the path that the paper takes through the printer. The jammed paper itself can give you a clue about which side the obstruction is on, there wiil often be some sign, such as a bent corner on the page etc. Also check the sliding guides that keep the paper straight, they should be slid in until they are a snug fit with the paper, but not so tight that they stop it from feeding

    As others have suggested, try turning printer off, unplug cord, gently flip the printer upside down and shake! Mine coughed out a shirt button and a pill, both of whcih were causing the paper mis-feed. Bingo!

    Eureka! My old reliable MX310 printer stopped feeding paper a couple weeks ago and I decided it was time to buy a new one. As I was perusing new printer deals on Amazon, it struck me that I hadn't yet looked for answers to the problem on the omnipotent internet. I found this solution page, and, expecting failure, I flipped the printer upside down and shook. To my amazement, a small magnet (not part of the machine) fell out. Hurray! I not only don't have to buy a new printer, but the ink cartridges I impetuously bought in bulk for my Canon recently will not have to be thrown out!

Hi, My Canon MX310 all-in-one is only a couple of years old and lately broke down. The problem is it doesn't take the paper correctly. Shrink it at the start of printing and shows that there is not...


Hello,

My PIXMA 6000 has a paper tray on the bottom or else you can load the paper from above.

When the paper tray contains paper and is loaded it moves a switch that alerts the printer that there is paper available to the printer.

When loading paper from the feeder on the top of the printer there is a bar that kicks out from behind the paper that pushes the paper in to a roller on the other side. The roller grabs the paper and feeds it in to the printer. As the paper enters the printer a sensor detects it's presence.

Misfeed from the rear tray. The rear tray feed is not working. When it tries to feed it bends the right corner of the paper and then I get a misfeed message. I can't use the printer to print 4x6 photos...


there could be a teenie piece of paper stuck in the feed path causing this to happen, you have to visually inspect and ensure it is clear. Use plain paper to test.

rollers may also contribute to problems with feeding paper its good you tried that too.
lastly maybe the photo paper is too thick for that printer?

Code 6000 appears on screen and it says check printer


6000 is a paper feed issue, not the feed roller, but the platen roller. Could be something fell in the back and is stopping the platen roller from turning, ink or grease on the encoder disk at the end of the roller, or even a bad motor. Probably a repair best done in the shop.

When printing begins the paper feeds in diagonally and immediately crumples a bit and stops moving.


Take out the paper and look in the paper feeding slot: you will see a metal rod with seven rubber rollers on it. One of them (the one opposite the crumpling) is not catching the paper properly.

Easy to fix reasons are pieces of paper or debris caught in the plastic "teeth" of the mechanism, which stop the paper from being captured, and the whole rod snapped out of one side's retainers (gently pull it back in position until it clicks. The snapped-out side is the one opposite the crumpling).

The debris might also be just inside the feeder slot, so you'll have to use a strong light and hair-tweezers.

Unlikely-to-be-fixable reasons include worn out or defective rollers, severely snapped-out-of-alignment rollers and a warped rod.

You may get the printer to print (if the rod is intact but mysteriously not catching the paper) by keeping the paper upright with two fingers on the sides, so that one side's rollers only are supplying traction and your fingers supply the steadying. Not very satisfactory, but the "hand-feeding" often works.

You may also get some more weeks out of a worn roller by cleaning it carefully with a cotton swab and rubber cleaning fluid (beware not to use a solvent! "Rubber renewing" sprays are usually OK, just spray some on the swab). Sometimes, dust is enough to get an otherwise good roller out of operation; in this case the trick gets you a couple years' time.

Paper feeds crooked, then stops. I can't find the users manual. Do I need to clean the rollers?


you may need to replace the rollers. if its feeding crooked it sounds like one of the rollers isnt grabbing which means its either worn or possibly a tension setting.
