These printer are made to be used offten. Did you put in new copy paper, the old paper made had curled or struck together and printers do not like that. I have a printer which "plastic paper guild" seems to be in the way and misalining the paper. I removed it.
Also I learned that not refilling the color ink made the contacts stop working, even after cleaning them. Keep trying.

Printer pulls paper to the right...causes paper jam


possibly some paper is stuck in the printer. Can you manage to open the printer and check this out. If no paper at all then possibly carry it in for in-warranty service to the company outlet.

Lexmark 2500 printer paper gets stuck and won't print


. There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.

Printer does not fully pull paper...


You probably need to clean the rollers that feed the paper. Check your manual or go to Cannon web site.

When the printer pulls the paper into the printer it turns crucked and gets stuck. I take it out and try again and it does the same thing. I checked and their is no paper jamed. It's like the roller...


Look inside and make sure that there isn't any paper pieces or residue stuck in the rollers, especially the side where the paper gets turned.
Take a damp cotton pad with a dab of dish washing detergent and clean all the rubber rollers that you see. You can rotate the rubber rollers individually.

Also, if you can get to the rear rollers, clean them.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

Canon MP160 all in one


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

Paper-stuck errors


1. turn printer off and back on, maybe it can solve problem itself. if it gives you a specific error code, check manual for its meaning. 2. turn printer off 3. remove paper trays, check for any wrinkled or torn papers in there. 4. open all entrances to achieve reaching ways for all parts. 5. if needed, remove tuner. put it in a sealed bad to prevent damage. 6. if you see a stuck piece of paper, pull it strong, with both hands. your goal is to keep it from tearing to pieces. 7. if it gets torn, spin the wheels manually to release it, do not use force. 8. return the tuner, close all entrances. 9. if it happens again, dismantle it again and follow the paper route.
