Question about Canon PIXMA iP5000 InkJet Photo Printer
There are lots of reasons why this would happen:
Foreign object (could be very tiny)
Any power lights flashing ?
Paper feed rollers may need cleaning - try (from Canon Support):
1. Ensure that the printer is turned on. If any paper is loaded in the printer, remove it.
2. Select which roller to clean, the auto sheet feeder's or cassette's, by pressing the <Paper Feed> switch on the printer.
3. Hold down the <Resume/Cancel> button; when the Power lamp flashes green three times, release the button. The paper feed roller will rotate as it cleans itself.
4.. Repeat step 3 twice.
5. Load three or more of A4 or letter sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder or cassette, as selected in step 2.
6. Repeat step 3. The paper that is loaded in the printer will be fed through the printer and ejected.
7. If printing problems persist, repeat step 6 up to three times.
Could be a hardware error and the printer would need servicing - still under warranty ?? If so, return to Canon for repair or replacement.
Hope this helps.

This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So if you have used any adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers. If not there can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.
