Question about Canon Pixma MP450 All-In-One InkJet Printer

5 Answers

Hi, my canon pixma mp450 is not feeding the paper thru properly.

It gets stuck on the right side and then the printer just thinks it's done printing and doesn't even come with an error code. I'm just past my 1yr warranty so customer svc recommended I take it to a repair facility.
I just wanted to check on here to see if there's a simple solution.

Thanks, any advice would be appreciated.
Kim :)

    The paper jams on the right side of my Canon Pixma MP450. I've cleaned the paper feed rollers but that didn't help. There is no error code and sometimes the printer doesn't ask to feed the paper again; it thinks the print job has been completed. The unit is less than one year old. Any advice you can give would be appreciated.

    I just got my printer back from the repair shop....paid $75.00 for them to find a metal hair clip stuck inside the printer. They said I probably wouldn't have been able to get it out myself because of how far inside it was, but I sure wish I tried. Just thought I'd post for anyone with the same issue. Something to consider.

    Thx and good luck :)

    I have the same problem. Paper gets stuck on right side. Isn't feeding properly. Sometimes printer continues to print as if paper is fed and sometimes it gives a paper jam error. There has to be a simple solution. Help!

We had the same problem so we opened the screws up at the back, gave it a shake and suddenly a asweet wrapper appeared. We then put the screws back in and it started printing again! Good Luck!

Paper feed problem


This is happening due to paper jam on the gear or roller of the paper feed mechanism. Check for any small bits of paper or sheet stuck. To check lift up the top plastic lid of the Canon printer. Check to see if a jammed sheet of paper is visible inside the printer. Remove the cartridges and check for any small paper bits stuck under the print head. Pull the paper out gently through the bottom end of the printer(if any). Close the top plastic lid. Power On the printer and check.

If it doesn't work then power off the printer, wait 10 seconds and power it back on. try once again to print. If it doesn't work then Open the Canon printer software. Click "Options" and then select the "Clean Print Heads" button.

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print

Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Says paper jam but there is none. pixma mp450

Take any paper out of the paper feeder and get a plastic ruler the softer the better lift the top of the printer up so you can see where the print cartridges are now push the ruler down through the paper feed roller be careful because you could break the rollers go from left to right right to left twice and check for any debris once you have done this unplug the printer for about 20 seconds then plug back in and let it reset then try copying or printing a doc and see how you go!

Printer paper reloading

So the feeder woek sometimes, If you have a warranty, bring it back, if not , the printer might have something stuck in his mechanism or a bit of spread ink, open it and check for any weird thing, you can do some cleaning but the mechanism need some greassy spot so do not be too clean
then try a recommanded paper for the printer like 80g for example and no more than 30 new pages to begin.
You can test the printer when open, you just need to push a few switch or button to make it run also you will be able to see where the noise come from.

Paper isnt loading correctly

My printer does that too, after many copies have been printed out. There is this mechanism that pushes the paper forward and another to slide one paper in... well it won't get in. I tried to add "grease" at the right side, "facing the printer", of that mechanism that made contact to the rollers which slides a paper in..  well my printer now works fine
