    exactly the same. says there's either a jam or tray is empty, even though there is loads of paper there.

    anyone know how to solve this? or is it a fault of the printer?

  • fahmyrazak Apr 21, 2008

    I have the exact same problem.
    One side of the paper gets pulled in a little, but the other side stays out. The printer tries to pull the paper in about 3 times and then gives up, displaying the same message the others have been complaining of.
    Any ideas?
    Looks like this is a common problem with this printer. I don't know..

Don't have t he box any more because it worked fine untill last week, only bought it 5/31- will Best Buy take it back or just send it out for repairs and how do I get Cannon to exchange it for one that works?

I had the same for a couple of days.
I cleaned the paper feed rollers and tried to find if there was a small piece of paper stuck in, that would have caused this. Finally I lifted the stupid printer and shook it to be sure there were no foreign objects in rear tray or output tray. Nothing seemed to drop, but the stupid printer is working now...

If you printer is still under warranty, Canon will replace it.

Problem seems to be in the design. The paper loading roller pulls on the corner of the sheet,cocking it to one side. If the paper was pulled in from the center of the sheet,it would be pulled in straight and evenly.

I get message to pull out jammed paper but I cannot find end of the paper to pull out

Try blowing the printer out with a can of compressed air. Tiny bits of paper will often get stuck in the "eye" of the optical reader that tells the printer that it has a jam. Compressed air can blow this debris loose.

Another thing to double-check is the paper tray. Remove the paper tray and inspect the place where the paper gets pulled into the printer. Sometimes you will find a sheet of paper stuck there that isn't readily apparent anywhere else.

Paper feed problem


This is happening due to paper jam on the gear or roller of the paper feed mechanism. Check for any small bits of paper or sheet stuck. To check lift up the top plastic lid of the Canon printer. Check to see if a jammed sheet of paper is visible inside the printer. Remove the cartridges and check for any small paper bits stuck under the print head. Pull the paper out gently through the bottom end of the printer(if any). Close the top plastic lid. Power On the printer and check.

If it doesn't work then power off the printer, wait 10 seconds and power it back on. try once again to print. If it doesn't work then Open the Canon printer software. Click "Options" and then select the "Clean Print Heads" button.

Printer pulls paper to the right...causes paper jam

possibly some paper is stuck in the printer. Can you manage to open the printer and check this out. If no paper at all then possibly carry it in for in-warranty service to the company outlet.

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.
