Hello there
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you.
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Printer only takes paper from one end resulting in a paper jam


I would not have believe this if I have not actually experienced it. Today, my Canon PIXMA MP470 started feeding my paper crooked, to the right where the feed roller is located. Did some research and found numerous people discovered foreign objects inside their printers. Since I had tried numerous other solutions, such as maintenance cleanings from the printer control area. I decided to unplug the printer, turn it upside down and shake it, hoping to dislodge a foreign object. It didn't work. I then took compressed air and sprayed vigorously inside the printer, and tried it again. It didn't work. I then took some card stock (the type used for making greeting cards), put it into the printer and began printing a word processed document - just something to get the card stock to enter the printer. I manually forced it into the printer as it started to print, then after the card stock was about two inches into the printer I manually pulled the card stock back, and THERE IT WAS! My memory card insertion slot protector from my netbook! Thank you Jesus! It is a small piece of black plastic that had fallen from the top of my printer, where I had foolishly placed it while I was using the memory slot in my netbook. Printer works great again! I hope this helps someone!

NO PAPER FEEDING


There could be something blocking the paper path. Unload the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder for any foreign objects that might have accidentally fallen into it.
Also, access the cartridge area. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While the cover is open, make sure the paper path and the cartridge carrier's path are free from obstructions. Then close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert your cartridges. Close the cover. Load some paper (avoid overloading). Try to print again.

There is a foreign object in my printer and I cannot access the area it has fallen in to. It fell through the Rear Paper Tray and is now somewhere above the Cassete Paper Feed area. How can I get access to...


A crude method but works sometimes is to lift the printer shake it ans then turn it up and down and side ways. May be the foreign object gets displaced/dislodged and then it can drop out from any of the openings when you are shaking it or turning it up down. Otherwise I will not advise you to open the printer yourself. Please have it checked and serviced by a company technician.

Printer does not load paper


Hi Good day!!!
paper feeding in crooked or at an angle problem, is common to most printers. HERE'S SOME GENERAL INFO THAT MIGHT HELP: It's possible that the paper may be running into a foreign object and not feeding in at all. A foreign object could also cause the paper to stall, or even feed-in crooked. Remove all the paper and use a flashlight to look carefully into the paper feed-in area. Look for a pen, pencil, push pin, paper clip, candy, etc. If you can't see anything, then actually pick your printer up and turn it so the paper opening is facing down and shake it a little, side to side. Your trying to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the paper entrance area. If nothing falls out, then turn it back over and use the flashlight to once again look inside that area. Sometimes you'll see an object that may have moved over into view while you were shaking the printer. Any foreign object might block the paper from actually being able to move forward, so then the printer thinks there is no paper installed. You may have to even remove the Top Cover to be able to get a better view of that paper feed area. Unfortunately, just removing that cover is not always that easy, especially on the newer printers. You may need a Service Manual for reference, disassemble and troubleshooting. I have not checked, but you can normally find Service Manuals for most printers, at www.2manuals.com (most Service Manuals can usually be downloaded for around $10 +/- ). Even if there is not a foreign object stuck in that area, with the top cover off, you might just possibly see what the problem is and even be able to correct

Not accepting paper


Check the paper feed path for obstructions like objects that may have fallen in. Tip the machine onto its back then almost upside down and give it a bash a few times to try and dislodge anything that has fallen in.

You can try sticking the vacuum hose in to the feed tray to **** out a foreign object and the last try is to feed an A5 piece of thick card (like off the back of a shorthand pad) through the feed path the wrong way. Start at the exit rollers and feed the card back through the mechanism. Take care to keep about an inch away from the right hand side as there is a sensor flag in that corner and you don't want to snap it off.

If nothing comes out, get a service manual from this guy and remove the ASF to get better access to see what is in the way. You can then also remove and clean the pick up roller before re-assembling.

Paper jam light continues


Even if you have cleaned the printer externally tiny bits of paper might have got stuck in the interior of the printer and are obstructing the movement of the roller..Also there might have been some paper clips,pins etc., that might have got stuck in it..
Also printers are hyper sensitive to dust..It might be causing this problem...
Take a cotton swab dip it in alcohol and press it against the roller whilw pressing the paper feed button....
If this doesn't work you should try a longer procedure...Remember you have to look real hard..

If the Paper Out LED is flashing the machine believes there is paper in the machine. If you know there has not recently been a jam and paper was torn when it was removed then there may be a fault with the paper sensor. The most likely scenario is that there is something holding the paper sensor in the active position. This may be a torn piece of paper, or a foreign object that has fallen in. Easiest way to find out is remove the covers and the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) to check for objects and/or damaged sensor. The dismantling is straight forward and easy enough for anyone to do. If you are unsure about how to remove the covers and ASF get a service manual from http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com (if yours isi not listed, just ask them for it - they will have it) and use it to guide you through removing the parts. Once inside, look for the sensor paddle (flag) hanging down into the paper path on the home end (right side as you look from the front) If the flag is not hanging down it may just need a gentle pull or it may have got broken off. Again use the manual to help you reseat the flag. If it is broken you can rebuid the old one with a peice of modlers plastic (or even a drinking straw) and some glue. Obviously if you note any foreign objects in the mech, remove them. Reassemble and test it out.
