Question about Canon Pixma Mp250 Printer

2 Answers

My mp250 is taking the paper in sideways and I have looked and the rollers do work. What could be the cause and am I able to fix this problem myself?

I have looked at the rollers, sprayed rollers with a little wd-40. tried to re insert paper several times, and did roller adjustment.

Oh dear, Never spray lubricant or anything other than air into a printer. I presume when you say "sideways" you mean "skewed".
If so then you have an object in the paper path that will cause this.

Let the machine try to feed the paper then when it jams VERY SLOWLY pull it back out. No look at the leading edge of the paper for a nick in it. The nick is caused by the paper hitting an object. Now lay the paper on top of the paper that is in the feeder. Look at where the nick is. Now refer this to the machine so you are looking into the machine in the position of where the nick is. Shine a torch into the feeder and you should hopefully see the foreign object and try to remove it with an opened paper clip bent into a "L" shape.
Good luck.

SOURCE: repeated paper jam in the fuser unit

There could be two problems with the copier:

1. There has been a Canon mod for the two pads already suggested earlier. Remove the two pads and place a foam strip that is runs across the top of the lower right access door basically between those two pads. This creates more even pressure across the deflector for the upper paper cassette.

The style of roller above the exit for the paper cassette is now gray in color instead of black.

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

Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

SOURCE: my roller dont take in the paper

MP160 PIXMA paper feed jam E3 error. I completely solved this on my Canon MP160 printer but it is a common problem and the fix may work for others such as MP130 MP140 MP145 MP150 MP170 or MP180. With the problem I had, the printer would make the usual motor whirring noises but would not feed the paper. The usual c-clunk sound that indicated the feed roller has been engaged was not there. The screen warning said to remove jammed paper and the printer showed an E3 error. The problem was caused by the ink cartridge carrier becoming stcky on its track and not fully returning to the rest position on the right side (as viewed from the front). The fix involved taking the printer apart and lubricating the cartridge carrier track and the ramps that lift the cradle that rises to cover the printheads. Unfortunately you have to dismantle the printer and separate the scanner unit to get to the lubrication points. Its not a quick fix. When you have the printer apart you will see a prominent white lever held by a coiled spring just behind the rest position of the ink cartridge carrier. The lever is actuated by the ink cartridge carrier when it moves to the right. If the lever is not actuated, the motor drive will never engage the large grey feed roller and the paper in the hopper cannot be fed into the printer. Make sure to also put some lube onto the lever at the point where it is struck by the ink cartridge carrier.

sounds to me like the Pick up rollers need to be replaced, you can try to manually clean those rollers with some rubbing alcohol and some q-tips and gently clean those rollers, if that doesn't help then the rollers need to be replaced. You can usually find replacement pick up rollers online

SOURCE: Paper jammed at exit rollers of Canon D860. Paper

If you remove the plastic covers on that side of the printer, you will see a small screw holding a bar against the rollers. Set the printer on end so you can remove this screw with out dropping it into the printer, and then the rollers will be loose enough that you can get the paper out.

Paper jams after pulled in skew


Mine did this ages ago. I found a staple had accidentally fallen into the printer and jammed on one side causing the paper to go in skewed and then jam up. Get a torch and have a really close look inside where the rollers are for staples, paper clips or bits of paper stuck on the rollers.

The paper keeps on getting wrinkled up every time i try to print it. How do I fix it?


It is possible there is some foreign material within the system specially stuck up in the rollers or the drive and so the feed of the paper tends to make the wrinkles.
Also the alignment of the ROLLERS must be clean so as to make the paper be drawn into in EQUAL force , if not the paper will move sideways and cause damage to the paper.

Hello i have a canon mp250 printer and when i put paper in it i takes it at an angle and says paper jam what could the problem be and how can i fix it


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.

Paper is pulled sideways infrom feeder....


Look for possible dirt or sticky material in the roller. use some methy spirit to clean the rollers that take up the paper.
Check if there is any paper stuck on to the rollers, if so remove and clean.
Check if there is any wearing of the rollers, alignment of the rollers.
Finally use printer paper as thin paper might be chewed in.
Hope you check with my advice.

Stuck paper in printer


the only solution for this is to dig it out

remove the paper feed cartridge, open the printer up and remove all corona wires, and anything that will slide out

look to see the feed rollers and try lifting on the rollers with your fingers to take any tension off of the top roller always try to remove the paper from the feed area slowly work the paper out if you still see small piece of paper try working them out with a stiff piece of index stock

avoid damaging the rubber rollers with a sharp object and by all means do not force the feed rollers they were designed to move in one direction..towards the copy area a pair of tweezers and hemostats work very well

the fact that the paper went in sideways lends me to believe you have a fed roller problem or an obstruction

once you clear the jam cean the feed rollers with soft cloth and alcohol



good luck

Malfunctioning Rollers


I had a similar problem and I called Dell; after 45 minutes of telling someone he was not the person I needed, I finally got the right person. The young man told me to turn the printer off and unplug it, then turn it upside down and shake. It did the trick, I have not had a paper jam since.
