Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Paper jams on right side of paper feeder and will not feed thru
Paper jammed in side wheel. i unjammed it but it still wont reset and print

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Yesterday someone replied to my problem, i tried it this morning and its fixed 1st time.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

HI this is happening to me right now too-- try this-- I'm not sure if it's going to work-- but it's worth a shot.
On your computer, go to a print menu to print a document.
click on properties
go to maintenance tab
try the quiet/sleep mode
also, try going to custom and slow down the printing allowing for a little extra dry time.
reason I suggest it: my printer is doing the same, it's almost like the auto sheet feeder (only on the right side--why paper is grabbing weird) is grabbing too quickly. When in sleep mode, it seems to slow it down a little. I've also been printing 1 page at a time. I'm not saying this is a permanent fix, but at $50 for a pack of ink-- hopefully if you can't fix it-- it can get you to use up the last of the ink you have incase you decide to get a new printer.

Tips for a great answer:
1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.
Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.
Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.
Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.
Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.
Pull out the extension completely.
Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.
Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.
