The foam was likely used for sound or to reduce the range of motion while in transit. If you are concerned, you could post a photograph of the area where the printer heads move across and a photograph of the foam.

How long have you had the printer?

A 22 cm long piece of foam has come out with my print job on my MP500 Canon Pixma Printer. It continues to operate Ok. Can I replace it myself or will I have to spend a lot getting a service. Any self help...


No need for manuals and such, the foam goes in the track under where the carriage travels. It is only there to catch any overspray when you make a borderless print. Your printer will work fine without it, but you can just lay it back in the track, it's not glued or fastened. You should look inside to make sure the other end pieces aren't sticking up to catch on the printhead.

Foam piece ripped now feeder doesn't work


It'd be cheaper and easier to get a new printer. Most modern desk jet printers are sold as throw-aways. There are few if any replacement parts for them.

Foam fell out of printer now printer jams


There are no foams inside the printer for normal operation. Unless this is the one that was inside it during shipping but you were not able to remove it. In any case if you are not having any problems then you are good to go. dont worry about it.
