Question about Canon MX300 Office All-In-One Printer
MX300 will not feed blank paper into the machine to be printed. Rubber rollers which are supposed to grab one sheet of paper and feed it iinto the machine do grab one sheet move it about one third of an inch--cause the paper to be wrinkled where they grab it but never feed it into the machine. Then I get an error message to ad paper and restart printing. I have tried adjusting the paper thickness lever. Any help would be appreciated
I disconnected turned upside down and started shaking it and believe it or not the roller starting working it prints fine!

The upside down shaking (and beating on the bottom) worked perfectly!

I initially looked at this solution and thought there was no way turning the printer upside and shaking it would make any difference. However, I had a similar scenario, as that posted above, where I had just replaced the black ink cartridge and the printer feed started failing, so I gave it a shot. Amazingly, this seems to have fixed the printer feed problem.

I was slightly skeptical of the shaking/beating solution, but in this particular case carefully meted violence was, in fact, the answer to the problem of the paper feed. Just be sure to restrain yourself; the rollers respond to minimal shaking/beating, so this isn't an excuse to go Office Space on your printer : )

Hey, By any chance did you unplug the printer at anytime when it was about to print that would cause the rollers to get off track to form the paper to go to one side and wrinkle i have had the same problom well still do with the same printer. your best bet that it is so cheap to buy a new one because its crap .,,,
