    It is possible that there might be something(like glue) stuck on the drum which is not letting the print come out clearly on that particular part. You need to remove the printer cartridge. Remove the Drum and then clean the drum with a soft cloth. If should be working fine. Make sure you re-seat all the parts as they were before or else you might end up with a non-working printer.

You need to find out where the sticky deposited and let me know. could have went on the drum for the toner or the fuser most likely. Do not touch if hot.

MFC 240C print quality is excellent but prints crooked on page. Ran alignment multiple times, no help.


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

Paper jam(Canon BJC 3000)


Try to open the printer cover and look for tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. Also if your printer has a sensor, there could also be a tiny piece of paper blocking it, thus sensing a paper jam.

Paper is getting jammed hence not printing


Sounds like somthing is caught in the left hand side try looking in it with a flashlight and see if you can see somthing stuck like a twistie tie/sticky label/ staple / sticky tape.... If its in far try using a ruler or a few pieces of paper stacked together to dislodge it.

Line down the right stide in the megenta area of the self test and blurrred print on the right side


Step1
If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Step
2
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
Step
3
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
Step
4
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.
