A small white plastic piece has broken off the bottom of the printer. I am not sure where it has come from. I think the paper carrier may have been forced and caused this problem. Now the printer is not...


In my experience, what you say might be correct. The small white broken piece could be the arm that comes down and touches the top sheet of paper in the tray, so it knows how much paper is loaded. When there is no arm, it can not recognize that there is paper loaded, thus NO PAPER FEED. I have fixed one of these in the past, but I had 2 identical printers to mix and match parts. I am not sure what it will cost you, you would have to call the repair center and find out. It took me about 2 hours to fix, so I hope a professional could do it faster than that.

Says paper jam no paper in machine


HI,I had the same problem today. I ended up taking a piece of paper and from the back side started lightly forcing the paper in the back slot. I had the top cover open where you replace the ink cartridges. Towards the back you can see the paper start coming into the printer next to some rollers. On mine there was a small black switch about an inch from the right in the middle of the plastic piece above the rollers. Once I started pushing this paper in I could see this switch was stuck in the down position. After several minutes of pushing the paper in and out the switch moved up and out of the paper path. I then pulled out the paper and hit the ok button and it came on line. This may work better with a piece of card stock.
That switch is the issue. I ended up finding an object lodged against the switch. Needed a flashlight, plastic giftcard and a tweezers to get it out. Works great now.

Also,open the printer where the paper for printing is put in.
At the back left hand side there is a white long piece and either side a white piece with a small square on it.
Use a longingish screwdriver and push this gently down. It will click back into place quite easily.
Note: this tops the paper from feeding in and needs reseting after a jam.You will know all is OK when a sheet of ordinary paper is put in > touches the feed roller above the white bits, and is level across the paper feed area.

Hope it helps,,

Thanks for using fixya.....

it is really difficult to identify what kind of part you are referring to, the only thing you can do is to took a snap shot and send this to a shop.or bring the part itself.
I think this part came from the feeding assembly, most part came loose after a period of time

Paper i feeding wrong, it starts then backs up a


Generally whenever paper goes "crooked" it's because something is partially obstructing the paper path.
It could be a small piece of plastic, or paper from a previous jam that tore off and stuck.
I would suggest looking at the paper path (use a flashlight) to see if there are any obstructions and then carefully remove any found.
I've also seen where the side plastic has become broken, or has a sharp edge sticking out that will cause the paper to misalign.
Hope this helps!

I have a canon pixma mp180. some little plastic pieces fell into the paper feed. I pulled what i could see out but now the paper jams when being fed. I did the maintenance roller cleaning. I was wondering...


I kept running the maintenance roller cleaning with paper in the feed and eventually I was able to see the tip of the plastic piece that had fallen in as I pulled the paper through with my fingers, I was able to get the whole piece and now the printer is golden.

Paper feed broken


You broke a part. It is a low end machine. The repair will cost close to the repalcement cost of the machine. I would replace it and start with a new warranty.

Tried solution for printer unable to initiate


This is related to the paper feed roller:

Check encoder disc if it is stained with ink or broken (its the round foil disc which is fixed on one of the three white big gear wheels on the left hand side). It should turn around without any scratching sound!

Check if another gear wheel is broken (right hand side behind the purge /parking station). Here you will find the gear box which is shifted by print head (little white plastic coming out of the metal plate between purge station and absorber box)

Pull out the paper tray and try to turn the paper feed roller by hand. You can reach it when seeing from bottom without the tray.
