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.

MY 81/2X11 inch paper feeds crooked into the printer and jams.

Get a flashlight and look into the printer where the paper enters (Leave it jammed ). If the end, right side moves slower than the left, it is hitting something , check for a paper fragment from a previous jam or other debris. The leading edge of your paper should be touching the debris.

IP3500 keeps misfeeding paper, it takes it from the right hand side (looking at it) and jams everytime. It is out of warranty but has had very little use, please help!!

possibly that a foreign object, ( label, scrap of paer), has fallen down inside on the left hand side, and it not letting the feed roller catch the paper, the right roller gets it and then it jams. You can get a torch and have a look where the paper goes in to see if this is the case. Dismantling a printer is not an easy job, and it would probably be cheaper on ink to buy a new one.
