SOURCE: Canon MP460 feeds the paper into the printer

I just got mine sorted out. It took two things:
a. luck
b. a lot of googling

Now,

The problem was 15 cents of the Euro in the following configuration: 1x10cent coin and 1x 5 cent coin...

The first thing I did was try to clean the bottom plate and the roller. I read somewhere that using some thick paper does the trick. I destroyed an office paper file (not very thick, but definately thicker than normal papers) - about 5 - 6 tries on the bottom plate clean and the roller clean, and a 5 cent coin appeared out of nowhere :)

I though that was it but I was very very wrong. At about the same time, I got the mother of all annoying canon error 5100. Although the heads moved at starting of the printer, when it came to print it had the error. I looked as much as I could and I was convinced (several times) that there was nothing in the printer. The heads moved fine, but the error was there. Rebooted the printer about 50 times, took power off etc, but nothing.

After a good 5' search with the flashlight (mobile phone) I spotted a small shine right where the little spongy thing is under where the heads rest far right when you look inside from the front of the printer. And voila, a 10 cent coin standing glorious in there and causing me all this trouble. I couldnt access it at all, but I was able to use the force of gravity (by inverting and giving a little jiggle to the printer) to get it to drop and finally got it out.

The printer works fine now, paper loads like a charm and even colour photo printing is fine.

Now I need to find a way to put back that little plate I took out (totally unecessary in the end...) and I have to sort out the removal of tons of ink from my hands.

To sum up:

It can be fixed. It's a pain in the ****. You might get richer (15cents for me!!!). You will have a full functioning MP460 printer again.

I hope this helps someone else as well :)

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.

SOURCE: Epson R340 does not feed paper or feeds it crooked

two things I would do, first carefully flip the printer upside down, (anything that looks like it can flap open, tape it well), and jiggle it slightly and see if anything falls out.

second, i would clean the pickup roller with an alcoholic pad or swab, if its not easily accessible, you will probably need to take the upper an middle casing off, which I dont recommend.

thanks adi

SOURCE: My HP 7310xi document feeder picks up paper but

Hello there This is worth a try.


You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My X2250 will not feed the single sheet of paper evenly. When looking at the...


Printer would not feed paper no matter how many sheets were in the bin or how clean the printer. I even cleaned the roller. The issue was I just needed a little more tension on the roller that pulled the paper in.

I removed the rear access door (see manual). Off to the left near the feeder roller you will see a spring. What I did is mover the spring to the END of the plastic arm that it is attached to (if it is missing ..you have a bigger problem). If you have moved your printer around a bit, the spring may have slipped down on to the arm and is no longer sitting at the end. This will extend the spring another 1/16 of an inch ...and that is all all it took for me. My printer will now feed a single sheet of paper with no issues. BTW: I put a drop of glue on it after so it would not slip off.

Paper pulls in crooked with left side not pulling into the printer and then does not print at all


This problem comes from the paper wheels. There are small size wheels that feed the paper into the machine. Once one of this wheels is slipping either you change just that wheel or you change the whole set of wheels. So I would take it to a repair shop to see how much it will cost. Other wise time to buy a new one. Good luck

Why does my dell 1720dn print crooked?


The paper feed rollers are dirty and are pulling the paper in at an angle.
Could be from high % cotton paper or sticky label printing.
Clean the "pickup" rollers with eyeglass cleaner (not Windex).

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.

Paper feeds through straight at first then scans crooked at the end


This could be because of unclean rollers. The scanner picks paper neat, but images is crooked. This is because paper is stuck on one side and the other side is contnuing on the other, giving it the skew. There may be something sticky on the roller, possibily a left over cellophane tape. Remove it and clean with Isoporpyl alcohol. Dont use solvents.
