Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
This printer is basically brand new, I bought it in September, and it's sat on my desk safely since.
Yesterday I printed out a page fine, it grabbed the paper and printed out at lightning speed as usual. I'm a college student, I don't use the printer heavily, but I use it from time to time. Also, no one tampered with the printer since I don't live at school :-)
Today, it will not feed the paper no matter how many times I try. I've fanned the paper out, I've used everything from one sheet to many sheets, it just won't roll the paper through. And it's making a weird sound too, like a low grinding shrieking noise. While I don't know anything about printers, I know that's definitely not a good sign!
Luckily I discovered the lower paper try beneath where the printed paper comes out, so it's a temporary solution, especially around finals time.
Any ideas on what is wrong with this printer? Visually, I can't see anything stuck in there. As I said, it worked perfectly yesterday, no scary sounds either. I got it at Best Buy... I guess I might end up taking it there, I think they will fix it for free or send it away and I won't see it for a month... not so sure how to proceed... perhaps there is something I can do to fix it myself, like if the "rolly thing" that catches the should be in a certain position or something?
The above solution is very detailed and informative. It's great. Thanks. Also, a good first step is to check the paper feed to make sure it is set to the correct loader. Sounds stupid but easily overlooked.
