There are two feeders on this MP730. There is the sheet feeder on top and there is the paper feeder on the back. You can have problems with both.

The sheet feeder on top.
If the problem is things go through somewhat sideways, and if this is the problem, stuff some postit notes between the back grey thing and the feeder tray to eliminate this problem. Add or subtract to the wad to make it right.

If the problem is it does not grip the sheet, what I used to do is to help it through by one sheet at a time, painful. I got frustrated with this so for scanning, I have a Snap Scan 1500, which is faster and better.

The paper feeder.
A small piece of paper left in the paper infeed path can cause a major problem. You cannot have anything in the paper path that will skew the paper, so you must get any little bit of restriction out of there.
As the printer gets older, you will have to produce your own guides to prevent this skewing, as the guides on the printer do not do this well. I use clamps and wooden guides to keep things in line.

Most probably is something stuck at the paper feeding area or FEEDER ASSY faulty.

Paper feeds incorrectly the feeder is pulling to the left and causing the paper to jam or to tear.


Sometimes dried ink on the roller causes it to incorrectly "grip" the paper, making it slip in one section and pull to the side, Check the rollers for Ink and other dirt.
Also try less paper in the feeder, it may simply be too much and is not able to feed it correctly.
Hope this helps GM

The paper in my canon 2270 is sticking every time it feeds. This only occured after we ran some books


Make sure the paper size dial is set correctly for size and orientation of paper loaded (on the front right corner of the paper tray). The copier will display paper jam every time if this dial is incorrectly set. After this has been confirmed, if it still jams, try cleaning the paper feed rollers with soapy water or isopropyl alcohol (make sure rollers are dry before attempting to copy again) Let me know, please

When I print on my Canon MP730, it always prints out a blank page after every print job. How can I fix this?


SOLUTION(S): Reset the Sheet Feeder Gears
If the power fails while the paper is feeding or during a print job, the paper feed gears will lose their proper
alignment. The reason is that after the power is restored the paper feed gears will attempt to return to the
home position, which may not be possible if the paper stop cam is not in the correct position.
PROCEDURES
1. Remove the sheet feeder from the unit.
2. Remove the sheet feeder motor from the sheet feeder assembly.
3. Remove the drive gear from its spindle.
4. Realign the lifting tray gear and paper stop cam gear.
5. Reinstall the drive gear and sheet feeder motor.
6. Reattach the sheet feeder to the print unit.
7. Reassemble the unit.

Paper jam


One of your jam sensors may be stuck in the actuated position by a paper scrap or dust, giving a jam code to your printer. There are usually two sensors, one where the paper feeds, and one where the paper exits. Try this: hand-feed a sheet of paper through the machines paper path,IN THE DIRECTION THE PAPER NORMALLY FEEDS. This may force out whatever is actuating the sensors.

Canon MP730 not feeding properly.


The machine had never given trouble before, only this time when a new person was using it. So, figuring they may have refilled the paper tray incorrectly, I took out the paper guides at the back and kept hand feeding one sheet at a time. After each jam up I had to reset everything but after about 7-8 tries "something" cleared and now it works fine.
