Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Parer feeds down about 1/2 inch, either doesn't feed anymore or gets caought on right side and doesn't feed anymore. rollers cleaned, turned printer upside down, in case anything dropped in. Help.
Yeah i tried the cardboard as well...it didnt work first time. but as i had no other choice, i did it 2-3 more times and eventually i heard a lot of noise and to my surprise my mailbox key popped out covered in ink...
so the cardboard seems to be the magical solution. not only does the printer work again but i also found my key!

Putting a piece of thin cardboard through really worked!!!! Thank you!

Took the suggested solution but this time I just shoved the piece of card board from a writing pad through when it wouldn't feed a stiff piece of paper through it. After that it worked perfectly. Thanks.

It worked. After I jammed the magazine cover into the printer a half a grape came out. I fed it through again and another half a grape came out.
You are a genius. Why doesn't Canon recommend this fix?
Because they want you to buy new printers every 6 months!!!

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

I had the same problem, at first it didn't work but after about 10 tries with a magazine cover out popped a toe nail, then after 15 more tries with a manila envelope out popped a quarter, time to do some laundry!!!!
