SOURCE: paper jamming and feeding unevenly

I have the exact same problem. Until last night it worked perfectly, and when it ran out of paper, I put more papers in the back of the printer correctly and since then it won't print, it pulls paper to the right and the paper jams. I tooked the printer to the service and they say that I'm lucky that the warranty did not expired yet, cause the problem is a "manufacturing mistake", and that they will take it to the Canon service.

I realy hope they will do the job. I'm expecting to repair be done till tomorow.

SOURCE: Error E3 when no paper jam

MP160 PIXMA paper feed jam E3 error. I completely solved this on my Canon MP160 printer but it is a common problem and the fix may work for others such as MP130 MP140 MP145 MP150 MP170 or MP180. With the problem I had, the printer would make the usual motor whirring noises but would not feed the paper. The usual c-clunk sound that indicated the feed roller has been engaged was not there. The screen warning said to remove jammed paper and the printer showed an E3 error.

The problem was caused by the ink cartridge carrier becoming stcky on its track and not fully returning to the rest position on the right side (as viewed from the front). The fix involved taking the printer apart and lubricating the cartridge carrier track and the ramps that lift the cradle that rises to cover the printheads. Unfortunately you have to dismantle the printer and separate the scanner unit to get to the lubrication points. Its not a quick fix.

When you have the printer apart you will see a prominent white lever held by a coiled spring just behind the rest position of the ink cartridge carrier. The lever is actuated by the ink cartridge carrier when it moves to the right. If the lever is not actuated, the motor drive will never engage the large grey feed roller and the paper in the hopper cannot be fed into the printer. Make sure to also put some lube onto the lever at the point where it is struck by the ink cartridge carrier.

Toshiba 2860.. auto doc feeder keeps jamming.. seems like one side is feeing and other had side isnt or something similar. Any ideasa?


In any doc feeder, the initial two feed rollers and one paper separator pad/roller handle most of the paper transportation. So usually if you have misfeeds, and the paper is not crumpling up, you have a problem with worn or dirty feed rollers. However, if the paper is getting crumpled up, you most likely have a physical obstruction blocking the paper path. My recommendation for when this happens is to take a thick piece of card stock and manually feed it through the paper path on the doc feeder, this usually acts to unclog any jammed paper bits or debris.

The paper won't feed through. it did one minute then stopped


This is sort of scenario could be caused by dust inside the printer. Dust prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. When one roller has a firm grip and rolls the paper well while the other doesn’t, crumples result. So I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

When printing begins the paper feeds in diagonally and immediately crumples a bit and stops moving.


Take out the paper and look in the paper feeding slot: you will see a metal rod with seven rubber rollers on it. One of them (the one opposite the crumpling) is not catching the paper properly.

Easy to fix reasons are pieces of paper or debris caught in the plastic "teeth" of the mechanism, which stop the paper from being captured, and the whole rod snapped out of one side's retainers (gently pull it back in position until it clicks. The snapped-out side is the one opposite the crumpling).

The debris might also be just inside the feeder slot, so you'll have to use a strong light and hair-tweezers.

Unlikely-to-be-fixable reasons include worn out or defective rollers, severely snapped-out-of-alignment rollers and a warped rod.

You may get the printer to print (if the rod is intact but mysteriously not catching the paper) by keeping the paper upright with two fingers on the sides, so that one side's rollers only are supplying traction and your fingers supply the steadying. Not very satisfactory, but the "hand-feeding" often works.

You may also get some more weeks out of a worn roller by cleaning it carefully with a cotton swab and rubber cleaning fluid (beware not to use a solvent! "Rubber renewing" sprays are usually OK, just spray some on the swab). Sometimes, dust is enough to get an otherwise good roller out of operation; in this case the trick gets you a couple years' time.

Print head slams side to side against little black movable posts.


Sounds like your printer needs to be serviced. Would seem to me like the rollers are dirty and needs cleaning. There's also a possibility of dust and paper bits being in other areas of the paper path blocking it.

Paper get jammed in the automatic feeder on top of my printer


3 possibilities.
1 If you use this macine to copy labels, there may well be a small piece of a label stuck in the paper path on the crumpled side. Or a small bit of paper.
2, the paper pickup on the crumpled side is 'polished', and no longer feeding the paper at the same time as the uncrumpled side. They can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. Though that is a temporary fix and the paper pickups should be replaced if cleaning fixes the issue.
3 The fuser film has a tear in it on the crumpled side you need to rule out 1 & 2 before going to three again replaceable but a bit more difficult

Paper feed problem-wont go through- crumpling up as it tries to go through


You probably have a piece of paper stuck at the place where it's crumpling. Take a good look and carefully extract it. It may be small, so look hard.
