    paper get stuck and won't gp through the feeder

  • Karl Jun 10, 2008

    When printing the printer will feed the paper through but many times it will come out all crinkled as if it had been jammed or about to. other times it just completly jams up.

    The paper will not feed through. It either jams or does not feed at all and returns an error that it is out of paper.

    paper doesn't feed properly. either it doesn't take any paper, or it takes several sheets at a time. makes a loud groaning noise when try to feed paper, then stops and reports a jam.

    Printer sounds like it is going to feed paper but has unusually loud clicking noise and will not feed paper. Error 1003: No paper. However I have very, very carefully tried feeding paper again and again. Same problem.

    It crumples the paper and then jams. Please help!

  • Anonymous Dec 29, 2008

    I think I had a problem installing firmware on the printer. Now it only spits out 4 pieces of paper instead of printing (the one getting crinkled and jammed).

  • arbor123 Feb 08, 2009

    printer was working beautifully until yesterday. The paper started pulling to the right and jamming. In addition, if any paper does print, it only prints on the very top or the very bottom of the sheet.

Hey. I too am having that problem with my ip1800 canon printer. It makes a weird "clicking" sound whenever I turn it on, and then when I try to feed it paper, the sheets either get stuck and become crooked and cumpled. OR, when it does sound like its printing, it doesn't print on the page--maybe the tip of the page, but not the whole page.

Paper feed jams on right hand side after I pulled bits of an A4 that came out ripped


Bruno:

You did not get all the pieces of that A4 paper out of the paper path. There is still a small shard of paper in the right side of the paper feed area. Use a flashlight to look carefully in the paper feed area and gently use tweezers to remove the piece of paper. If you pulled the sheet of A4 paper backwards out of the feed area, you may have dislodged the paper feed sensor (a small plastic finger that sticks down in the paper path to tell the printer that the paper has passed.) Be careful with the tweezers... if you break that sensor, there is no fixing it.

Sharp AL-1631 bottom paper feed will not pick up paper.


A few things could be the problem.
  1. The paper in tray could be damaged
  2. The drawer separator pawls (metal taps on the right side of tray where paper touches)
  3. Paper backstop not in or in wrong spot (green plastic piece at back of paper)
  4. Feed tires are worn or dirty
Does the copier try and feed from tray 2? If it tries but the paper doesn't leave the try look and see if there is a dark mark on the page (top middle towards the right). If so then most likely the feed tire is worn.

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


Hi,
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.

Regards
Richard.

On a Canon MP 460 printer, the paper will not feed in straight causing constant paper jams.


If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit.Caution: Since the cleaning process wears down the paper feed roller, perform this procedure only when necessary and no more than three (3) times.
  1. Ensure that the printer is powered on and remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF).

  2. Press the <Menu> button.

  3. Use the right / left cursor button to select [Maintenance/settings], then press <OK>.

  4. Use the right / left cursor button to select [Maintenance], then press <OK>.

  5. Perform the paper feed roller cleaning three times.
    1. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.

    2. When prompted to start roller cleaning, use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press <OK>. (The paper feed roller cleaning starts.)

  6. Check if the paper feed roller cleaning procedure resolved the issue.
    1. Load a sheet of letter-sized plain paper in the ASF and open the paper output tray.
    2. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.

    3. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press the OK button. (Paper will be fed.)

  7. If paper is not fed properly, repeat step 6 up to three times.

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.

Non stop paper jams


I had this same problem. I finally noticied that the problem occurred consistently on the right side of the paper feed. I discovered that a little part along the right side of my drum unit (just inside the paper feed area) had disconnected and was loose inside the drum unit itself. Once this little part was placed back into it's rightful place, VOILA! Problem solved! Hope this helps!

PAPER FEED


Assuming that you know where the paper gets feed in, I usually use this trick to start a new roll of paper.
First, tear off the end of the new roll so that there isn't any glue stuck on the paper.
Then, fold the tip of the paper like an arrow. (Fold one side to the middle and the other side to the middle so both sides meet in the middle.
Then, place the paper into the slot where the paper feeds in.. (Usually goes under the printer assembly) and then hit the PAPER FEED button at the same time. If the paper is in the correct slot, the paper should start feeding the paper all the way through.
Hope this helps.
Have a good day.
