Paper won't feed due to piece coming loose

Small piece that seems to hold & assist in feeding paper came loose. piece is approx 2 inches wide & 1 1/4 tall. It has a small spring in the center with one end of the spring pointing down. My daughter said that it was approximately in the center of the paper feed area.  Needless to say, I have absolutely no idea how to replace it and we need the printer for homework.

If it is the piece I am thinking of, try replacing the spring with a modified spring from a click-top pen. Otherwise, please add a photo of the issue for better understanding

Canon mp250 paper will not feed snags on something roller works but will not feed


I had a paper feed problem with a Canon MP 250 and solved it this way. (not my own)

After many attempts t clean the feed rollers etc. I tried the following.

I cut a piece of card stock about two inches wide. I fed this sock from the front to rear and carefully worked the card stock in and out and from side to side (flossed it) and dislodged a drywall screw !!

I realize that having a drywall screw lodged in the paper feed is not common, however this "flossing trick may help to clear the paper feed path in other situations.

Hi! My name is Roy Napier and I have couple of problems for which I would like your advice. 1. On some occasions my print-out has faint extra "ghost" copies of the text etc printed plus the colours seem to...


My first suggestion to you is to remove, clean, shake, and reinsert the ink cartridges, then allow the printer to self align. Follow your manufacturer's recommendations for removal and insertion of the cartridges.

The dragging of colour that you mention is most likely attributed to the rollers which feed the paper. If one is dirty, it will affect the paper's print quality. The way that I suggest to fix the problem with dirty rollers is to obtain a long, continuous piece of brown paper towel (utility towels, like you find in factories) and insert the end of the paper into the multi-purpose feed, then feed it into the printer for a few seconds.

Once the paper towel has fed into the printer, extract the paper manually by pulling on it in the opposite direction of feed. Repeat this process a few times and the rollers will be clean, and the color scrubbing problem should cease.

Whwen I feed my paper in my printer it pulls to the right


take a look inside the printer there are a few small rubber wheels (where paper comes out)
most likely you have a small piece of paper jammed and blocking the left wheel from pulling the paper. they are very delicate so be gentle with them. the issue may also be caused from the back set of wheels where the paper feeds into the printer.
I have a straight piece if clear plastic thet is approx same size as sheet of paper and this is what I use to clear paper jams. The best way to prevent this from happening again is to remove paper when not using and cover printer with a small towel. I have found p-clips and all sorts of junk in clinets printers.

Frequent paper jams on Xerox PE220


You have to spin them backward to get them into a good position to clean them, They will resist you, but just take it slow and clean them with alcohol or formula 409 type cleaner.
But what will often cause jams on that machine is the seperation pad that is located on the paper tray itself. It will get very slick and allow 2 or more pieces of paper to feed, It is a small gray to black pad on the middle front of the tray, about 1/4 inch wide and and inch or so long, If it is smoothe scuff it with some scotch brite then order one or two.
Google a business called "the parts drop" and call Britt, they should have the pads and rollers at a fair price.

1610 all in one.....won't grab paper


The feed roller was turning but the paper wasn't moving and so I kept getting an "out of paper message." The paper was actually getting caught on a small black piece in the back of the printer. I removed the black piece and the paper start to feed fine.


Remove the back access door (it just pops out... no screwdriver required). The black guide piece (2nd from left) is about the size of my little toe after I took it out. Use a flat head screw driver to pop it out... that should leave 3 black guide pieces left. Put the access door back on the printer and the problem should be solved.cf725f2.jpg

Lexmark x 3350 all-in-one


I picked up a used Lexmark 3500 with the same problem. Had requested help fixing.

Tried to feed more paper through - still pulling hard on the right side. Tried to feed several pieces of paper - one at a time, getting them jammed then pulling them back out. Finally one got jammed way down in there - yanked it back out. Open the top(as to load ink cartridges) Saw a tiny piece of paper sticking out between the plastic rollers, got a small crochet hook (tweezers would have worked), grabbed a hold of it and pulled it out enough to get a good hold of it, then pulled it out. There had been a shread of paper jammed in the roller area. 3" long by from 1/4" to 1 1/2" wide.

My problem was the chunk of paper stuck in the roller mechanism where you could not see it or get to it, until it was partially forced out.

Hope this helps someone else!

Canon ip90 printer wont grab paper


The most likely culprit is that the rollers that pull the paper are dirty. Use the steps below to clean the rollers.

If paper does not feed correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:
1) Confirm that the printer is powered on.
2) Remove any paper from the printer.
3) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button.
4) Release the <Resume/Cancel> button after the Power lamp blinks three times.

Note: The Power lamp will blink and the paper feed roller starts cleaning itself by revolving.
5) When the Power lamp lights in green, repeat Steps 3 and 4 up to two additional times. (Please wait approx. 30 seconds for paper feed roller cleaning to complete.)
6) To confirm whether cleaning has been performed properly, set a blank sheet of plain paper (8 1/2 x 11 Letter size) in the sheet feeder or cassette.
7) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button and release it when the Power lamp blinks three times. (The paper set in the printer is picked up and fed.)
8) Repeat the process as necessary

Paper doesn't advance through the printer


Hi, Sounds very much like the feed rollers are worn out. If you can get to them without too much trouble you can clean them up with regular rubbing alcohol and a rag which will help the paper feed. You might also want to try unpluging the printer and trying to roll the paper feed buttons by hand and seeing if a piece of paper will feed through without catching anywhere. If it does catch somewhere, then you may very well have a small piece of paper jammed in the paper path causing the jam. Good luck.
