Try to turn off the printer, open the compartment and check the roller. try to pull the paper and at the same time flip the roller in such a way that the paper will move out. If it is jammed and crumpled like what I exactly experienced earlier, remove the paper as fast as you can.

Turn on the printer, wait for the inkjet devices in a neutral position. Then insert the paper and start printing again. If it didn't work, try to hold the tip of the paper in horizontal manner while printing and make sure you remove the entire paper before the next page prints itself...

Paper won't feed properly and jams. the paper starts to feed then twists and jams.


There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.

After a paper jam, my canon mp140 does not print at all. It says to clear paper jam, but i have remove paper. Is there a solution?


Is is possible that bits of paper is lodged into the roller or into the sensor area that is showing it as a detect.
The rollers may be jammed and so it will be good to release the motor drive with a manual twist.
So disconnect printer, then open panel and remove motor to turn the rollers.
Once it is free , reset to test

My canon pixma MP210, is not feeding the paper through, seems to jam, but printer still is printing. The paper is taken about 10cms into printer, then twists slightly but does not fee through. Have checked...


There is a foreign object in the paper tray. Because it is curved you cannot see it. It is stuck in the narrowed area right before the feeding rollers.
Disconnect the cables and rotate the printer in a way it stands on its back.
Open the front cover. Use long thin flat screw driver that can go trough the paper out area and to reach the feed roller.Insert the screw driver between each pressure roller and the the feed roller to release the object. If successful it will fall out from the tray. Usually it's a coin, pen, point-protector, ruller, paper clip and so on.

Paper jam!! gets caught in roller! help please!!


Remove jam, again. soft damp cloth, gentle wipe rollers at front, no hard pressure.

Continual jams usually are the result of purchasing cheap paper, I used to do the same, learn't lesson, only a few pence more, saves all the swearing and hassle of fiddling around with jams when you have more important things to be do?

Further tip, before placing quantity of paper in tray, holding paper firmly, twist in opps directions, this helps seperate the sheets of paper that may stuck together.

The paper twists when feeding into the printer


If this is happening from the paper tray, you probably could use a new set of rollers for the tray. Also, have you had any paper jams where when you cleared the jam there was some paper missing? We have seen useres clear jams and leave a little bit of paper in the printer which blocks the paper path causing the paper to twist in the path as it hits the jam piece of paper. If the jam is a little after the pickup area you could have a bad registration assembly which is immediately before the area where the paper picks up the image. If this is happening at the exit, it could be a bad fusing assembly.

It sounds like the rollers on the rear access door may not be working properly and are making jamming the paper as it starts to feed up into the printer? Check the rollers on your rear access door and see if they have some give in them and roll freely.

PAPER JAM


Rotate tires. Pull out paper tray. Pull down on red low paper indicator at left bottom. Two rollers come down on axel near center. I pulled off the rubber tire like roller, then twisted the roller inside out and reinstalled it with the fresh side out.
If tires dry out again will probably buy new ones from ebay.
