Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. seems to of worked for others to, not always 1st time but it seems to reset the sensors or something
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now
let me know how you get on, Garty

Paper jam paper not being fed into the printer

The paper will not feed properly into my mx320 canon printer. It pulls the paper in on the left side but not the right side. I can see no paper stuck anywhere on the rollers. I have removed and replaced...


The mX320 being a rear sheet feeder model can suffer the problem of something falling into the feeder and causing the paper to jam on entry.
To find what has fallen in your will need to gently pull back the fed paper and look at its leading edge. This will show a heavy "Nick" in the edge. observe where the nick is in relation to where the paper is fed and that will indicate where the obstruction is in the feeder. Use a bent paper clip (L shaped) and see if you can feel and dislodge the culprit. Remove the ink cartridges and turn the machine upside down and give it a good shake. hopefull the drawing pin/paper clip/notice board pin will fall out and the world will be at peace once more.

Good luck.

Paper jammed while trying to fax through the feeder. Help


turn it off slowly work the paper out by pulling it slowly from the direction you fed it or by whatever direction you find it will come out the easiest. If it tears you be patient and work out pieces you aren't the first person that ever jammed paper in a fax just take patience to get it all out.

Paper feeder stuck


If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    Top feeder jam


    Yes. When removing a jam, it is never wise to "aggressively" remove the paper, as it can break switches, gears, etc. maybe any switches or gears had damanged, need replacement of that parts.

    MP390 paper jam at feeder


    First thing that comes to mind is that SOMETHING you (or someone) fed in, had a paper clip, staple, crinkle or some other unnatural thickness on one side of the paper - and it's stuck inside the feed mechanism.

    I had the same exact thing with the feeder on my shredder. You have to get right inside you printer to find the problem.

    Watever it may have been probably got stuck in the paper path so EVERYTHING from that point on gets skewed as it gets sucked into the printer and jams.

    Can you get "IN" to clear the path?

    Paper will not feed


    These are basically throw away printers. But you might try checking the paper path. There are small plastic "arms" that guide the paper as its picked up and goes throught he printer. Sometimes one of these may get stuck in a position that makes the printer think there is paper in the path somewhere.
