Question about Canon PIXMA MP180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I had this problem the other day. I turned out that I had a small bit of polystyrene foam had got trapped just before the white plastic rollers you can see in front of the toner sponge where the cartridge head runs when you lift the lid to change ink.
I discovered it by noting that on power-up these rollers turn as if to feed paper back into the paper feeder (i.e. "backwards through the printer"), so I tried to see if I could get a sheet to feed backwards and noticed something was trying to stop the right-hand side of the paper feeding in. Soon after I noticed the bit of foam through the right-hand side slot in the white plastic section above the roller. A quick removal with small tweezers et viola!

I have the same problem with my MP180. After trying the only option I could find: feed paper through when printer starts up.
I finally got frustrated and started prying around with the rollers. I rolled the top white one around and pushed on it a bit and then closed the lid, hit "ok" and it reset itself again. Hopefully this does the trick.

Many pixmas open at lower front bottom above paper output area, and have a little catch you press or depress. Once inside you are sure to fing a tiny paper jam. cheers lilacgerry xxx
