Paper jam, paper not feeding

Canon PIXMA MP160 Multifunction Printer
I had a paper jam, then took out the paper. There were no tears or even wrinkles. Now, the paper won't feed at all into the printer, although the printer acts like it is printing, thus spewing ink inside of it.
I can't even push a piece of paper through, to possibly reset a sensor - if there even is one.
I'm the person who handles all the copier issues at work when people screw something up and I have been very successful. This printer is really making me lose my temper though.
Any advice is welcome. Thanks.

    I did all of that already. I see one set of rollers that appears to push the paper through, on the right side. I don't see rollers on the left, where the jam is occurring. No paper was torn/bent when I removed the paper.

    Still not working. Thanks for trying. I'll take any more hints!

    Paper was beginning to roll in, then stopped right before it actually entered the printer. Printer printed anyway with no paper in, then sent paper jam alert. Now it won't do anything and the print job disappeared from the print queue. We've cleaned inside and out with canned air and ran a fix on the installation.

    I am having the exact same issues. Please post if you have found a fix. Thanks!

    This is soooooo frustrating.........the rollers on the left side are not working. Actually they are partially lifted up so that the cartridge cant move side to side. HELP

You might want to figure out how the paper flows through the printer. Sets of rollers move the paper up, down, down, and up check from where the paper starts in and around to where it ends it might just be one piece of paper crumbled up very small somewhere lodged in the rollers.

I can't get my printer to print. The error


It says paper jam because the paper bar (located just before the paper exit) can't (or does it very badly) roll. It can be caused by a lot of things that have fallen inside the printer. Open it and try to see what's blocking the bar

Paper feed is jamming ,I have not even gone through the original ink cartridges yet,so i haven`t done a lot printing


Things to do remove the papers jammed inside the printer.
  1. Please Turn off this Canon Pixma 2600 printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper or any piece of paper got trapped in the printer..
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Do it carefully with utmost care.
  8. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  9. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. Before inserting the Toner or Catridge, please wipe the roller with cloth gently.
  10. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
See alternative if the problem is still not solved.




alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
