If the paper was damaged we can presume that there is a blockage, however your jam sounds like the paper is not in the expected position at the expected time (ie a sensor is not reporting that a peice of paper has reached it) so this can be cased by

1. rollers slipping on the paper from
a/ slippy media - try a different paper (even as a test)
b/Build up of paper dust on the rollers- If you can see the roller, power off and wipe with cloth
c/ Roller ware - If you can see the roller and have a mild abreahisive like wire woll If you can see the roller and give the rollers a rub

2. Sensor failure-Try Powering off then unplug wait 2 minutes and then power back up, this will reinitilise a sensor

When I hit print when the paper starts to feed the pushbar paper feed does so fast causing the paper to start slightly off caqusing a paper jam.. Is there anyway to adjust the feed


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper.The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

The paper does not feed correctly so that the paper goes into the machine crooked causing a paper jam.

My espon nx300 printer keeps feeding the paper crooked. It crinkles on the right side of the paper, causing the paper to jam each time.


This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So if you have used any adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers. If not there can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.

Paper jams on left side of printer and will not feed through


You have almost certainly got a foreign object in the paper feed path as there is nothing on the L/H
side that could cause an obstruction. First of all turn the printer off & disconnect all cables. Turn
the printer upside down and give a good shake, with luck the blockage should fall out. If not then you need to be a bit brave, make sure the print carriage is parked fully right and out of the way. You will need an A4 (approx) sized piece of stiff cardboard such as the backing from an A4 note pad. Insert this into the paper feed locating it between the feed rollers on the R/H side. Then push quite firmly to overcome the spring pressure, when you feel it push through about a half inch stop and open the printer to see what is being pushed through. Push the card fully through and retrieve the foreign object (I have found everything from paperclips, curtain hooks and even a golf tee!). Push the card through fully and out of the printer. Always remove paper jams etc, in the direction of the paper feed whenever possible
as pulling anything backwards can dislodge or break the sensor flags.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Only on Quicken to 3210 all-in-one printer. Paper starts to feed then indicates paper jam, wait long enough and paper feeds with crinkle and no print.


I would check the paper path on the printer where it is crinkling the paper. More than likely there is some small piece of paper or something that is causing it. Does it only do this out of quicken? I wouldn't think so if the paper comes out damaged....

Canon pixma ip3000 paper feed jam


try cleaning the rollers with alcohol, the tires are probably dirty and one side is not gripping the paper.

Paper will not feed correctly, keeps jamming up.


There IS something stuck in the feed path. If the paper starts to feed and then crinkles on the feed side, there is an object stopping the paper moving forward.

Lay the machine on it's back and take a sheet of very stiff card (A5 size approx) and push it through the paper path in reverse. So start where the paper would normally exit and push the card in. You may need to lift the pinch rollers just behind the print head by hand to aid the card through. Keep the card to the side that would normally crinkle but beware of the paper sensor flag. If you force it you could break it off.

Once you get past the pinch rollers behind the print head, push a little further then start to move the card in and out but along the length of the rollers. You should find that sufficient to push out whatever is in the path and having the machine on it's back will help it fall clear of the feed mechanism.

If it does not fall out using this method you will have to remove the covers and try to remove the ASF to get at the object.
