This is all i see of your question

my caaon printer status says off line paper thicknes lever

this is insufficient information to diagnose your problem. what has the thickness lever have to do with it being offline?

    check the paper thickness lever located at the left side of the
    printer, set this lever to the lowest possible setting that your paper
    can handle. This is the darkest that the printer can print. Other than
    this, it may be an application issue. Check for contrast settings in
    your program.

    As a final straw re run your startup disk again

Paper feed not move

If I recall the KXP series, it is a track feed printer as well as sheet feed, there should be a lever on the top that you can move to different positions, one position is for feeding paper without the rollers, when the lever is placed in a different position it releases the rollers so the printer can feed the paper. The open position is for installing paper or clearing paper jams. Also if I recall, the lever is on the right side near the roller on the end. When you move the lever, and turn the roller, you fill feel it grab the paper. There is also a switch on the front for line feed and page feed allowing you to tear off a page and then pressing it again will reverse the paper to print position.

My printer refuses to acknowledge the existence of paper in the MP tray. HELP! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, YOU HAVE TO HELP ME!

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Paper draw

Check if the rubber draw rollers are pressing the paper down properly.
If this is okay then see what is the default thickness of paper that has been configured .
Similar problem had happened when my friend had printed a whole stack on photo paper and set the thickness of paper to highest level to ensure paper is not stuck inside, later it would not draw in normal thicknes paper till we rest the paper settings.

Phaser 6110 - red light on, not printing

Just had user with same problem. Printer status = paper jam but no paper in feed path therefore suspect paper pick up problem. Asked user to take out paper tray and turn paper in tray over. This solved problem.
So possible fix = turn paper over or try different paper.
If printer is old try cleaning pickup roller. My users printer had only done 227 pages.

Laser printer does not print

Hi there it may just be that the paper tray springs are not pushing the paper higher enough not making contact with the paper detect sensor arm. Or the sensor arm is broken and will need replacing. Check the tray springs also check the sensor arm you will see it if you remove the cassette and look inside there will be a black plastic lever hanging down when you put paper in this lever should go up as the paper acts as a barrier thus telling the machine that there is paper in it.

Printer does'nt work

You printer is giving you an error code with its flashing coloyr lights. I would consult canons website and write down the exact colours it is flashing as this is a specific error code. Most likely it is a paper jam error or reading error. Before you contact them i would try resetting the printer by powering down, unplugging all cables and cord, replugging and turning on and retry print jobs. If no luck go to plan B, webesite, and find error code. I am sorry i have no deatils for this printer to give you the error code myself.

Help please. can't print: paper light flashing even though there is paper in printer

To fix the NON EXISTANT paper jam:

Status light is on, paper light is on - you can hear the paper feed trying to "grab" the paper, but it can't,  and status light goes Red.

Take out paper tray

Reset the blue paper holders, move them tight against the paper so the paper is snug against all blue barriers. Cause: Somehow the blue paper holders got dislodged and the paper is not snug so the feeder is trying to grab paper that  is slightly out of reach.
