    Rollers are turning, but the printer does not take the paper and gives me a reading of out of paper. If I hand feed each single sheet and practically force the paper in, it will feed.

    Rollers turn but paper does not feed. Have had to sit and hand feed one page at a time, but now even that does not work. Similar to other posters, the 'out of paper' or 'paper jam' messages appear. I've gotten out the hand book to make sure I have the paper loaded properly, but short of that, I do not know what else to to. This printer worked fine when I first brought it home (approx 2 years ago), but now it's just totally infuriating. Same this happens when I try to make a copy (duh).

I love my printer and was so sad when it would not recognize the paper, it had sat a long time and cleaning rollers did not work. After carefully looking at the mechanics of it all tonight I noticed the metal plate on the bottom of the paper tray was dirty and greasy looking, I cleaned that small piece of dark metal and it now works fine. I love the ease and quality of the pictures.

Clean the paper feed rollers with a damp cloth (water) and dry it with a clean one. This will solve your problem.

SOURCE: 5300 won't load 8 1/2x 11 photo-weight paper.

''grabber'' roller out of work sometimes, you may try
1) there is a input paper sensor around roller, the roller out of runing if the sensor is not senitive enough or sensor switch dirty,
clean the sensor as you can find it,
2) Lighter-weight paper feeds and prints fine, which means this paper input sensor works ok, but you need to make sure they are same paper input sensor,.
3) the paper surface bright and the roller worn could be cause paper feed fail, you need clean the roller anyway. still not fixed, you need to adjust the roller pressure by increase the spring force.`

Fan you paper to get a little air into the stack..Also, don't put more than 25 in at a time. It packs them in too tight for the rollers to pull them through.

Paper jams in back of machine?


you have an obstruction either a piece of paper between the rolllers or the secondary feed rollers are not turning.... open the machine and follow the feed path ...take a piece of paper and manually feed the paper with the machine in the off position look at the feed rollers then the secondary rollers( usually two small rods with rubber sleeves kissing each other ...if you can look at the sides on the machine( inside the cover) see if the gears ( usually white ) can turn or mesh correctly... if you do not see any obstruction then these rollers are not turning when they are supposed to when you press the print button. 90 percent of these problems are paper jams if no jam something is not activating the feed rollers

Paper jam from paper drawer


Has the copier ever been cleaned, professsionally? If not, you may need a feed roller.

Unplug the copier. Prepare a dry cloth dampened with WD 40. Take out the paper tray.

Pull down the door on the right side of the copier. You will see a single, fat, gray or black rubber roller. Take the WD 40 cloth and wipe down the roller, turning it in the direction that the paper comes out the machine. Close door and install the paper tray. Let the copier stand for ten minutes.

Plug copier in and try a copy. If it feeds the paper, you need a new feed roller. If it doesn't then remove the paper tray and shoul there be skid marks on the paper then for sure you need a feed roller. If the paper continues to feed hooray, but when it stops feeding you definitely need a feed roller.

This requires a service call unless you have some experience with copiers. Likely this puppy needs a thorough cleaning.

When I try to make a copy the error code P flashes and paper in unit jams but I can still make copies thru bypass


P error normally indicates that you need to add paper. If there is paper in the cassette and the paper is raising up to the roller then the paper feed rollers are most likely dirty. You can clean the rollers with a cloth and some rubbing alchol. Also make sure you dont have a small peice of paper or something in the paper path causing the paper not to feed. Also listen when you press the prnt/start button and see if you can hear the paper feed clutch turning on then the paper feed rollers turning.

Please see this solution from Canon. It is recommended you check your manual for the proper procedure for clearing paper jams. Incorrectly removing jams could damage your printer. Trust the following helps resolve your current issue.

If you do not have a manual it can be downloaded from here:

Issue: More than one sheet of paper feeds while printing


Solution: Clean the paper feed rollers using the MX300 operator panel

sikaku.gif Cleaning the Paper Feed Roller (Roller Cleaning) Clean the paper feed roller if paper is not fed properly. Cleaning the paper feed roller will wear the roller, so perform this only when necessary.

1. Make sure that the machine is turned on, and then remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

2. Clean the paper feed roller.

(1) Press the Menu button repeatedly until MAINTENANCE appears.

(2) Press the l_mark_s.jpg or r_mark_s.jpg button to select ROLLER CLEANING, then press the OK button.

The paper feed roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

3. Repeat step 2 twice.

4. Open the Paper Output Tray.

(1)Put your finger in the rounded indent beside the Paper Output Tray and open it gently.

(2) Open up and set the Output Tray Extension completely by pressing down the hollow on its front side.

5. Make sure that the paper feed roller stops rotating, then load three or more sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in portrait orientation in the Rear Tray.

Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the left.

6. Repeat step 2 three times.

The paper cleans the paper feed roller as it feeds through the machine.

If the problem is not resolved, wipe the paper feed roller (A) located on the right side inside the Rear Tray with a moistened cotton swab or the like. Rotate the roller (A) manually as you clean it. Do not touch the roller with your fingers; rotate it with the cotton swab.

Paper won't feed through. goes about 2-4 inches the stops no matter how many times i clear the jam.


Hi If you remove the toner/drum unit and look into the back of the printer you will see the paper feed roller and just above it a long thin foam covered roller. Clean this foam covered roller with a damp cloth, it will be covered in toner and too slippy to feed the paper. Turn it and clean until it feels sticky again, all should now work !

Take one of those flat plastic rulers and push it through all over.. so that any forein ripped paper whatever, clears the way.. The paper is supposed to buckle on entry.. That's how it's designed. It could be a timing issue.. when the paper is fed in it buckles against the timing roller.. the roller turns only when its supposed to. Each sheet stays buckled against the timing roller until it turns, that's how the machine draws only one piece at a time. It's could be the feed clutch.. There's a little magnetic clutch that actuates the feed roller to pull the paper in. when this feed clutch gets weak it barely works or it slips and doesn't pull the paper in at the right time. I've replaced these often on my equipment.. but I've also found that static electricity plays a big role. If your area is too dry, the paper sticks together increasing the resistance, pulling either multiple pages or just too much resistance for the feed rollers.. screwing up the time.. Make all adjustments to the feed rollers first to ensure it's not a huge problem before you start looking for a clutch. Essentially if the paper doesnt make it into the feed roller on time it is a timing issue.. but it's starting from the feed rollers.

Paper does not feed completely properly.


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

If the error still exists then its the problem with rollers it needs to be serviced..

Good luck..

Paper feed


If the print-out is an 'alien-like' one, the problem is on the sensor of the printer. The sensor is on the opposite side of the gears. Under the black cover.
