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

    Good advice, but did not help. Mine feeds from the right side. Cleaning like this made no difference to my problem. This is a nearly new printer, disappointing.

Canon ip90 will not take paper through the printer

I have had similar problems with Canon and Epson printers. Standard solutions are not earth shaking, but worth a try. Use paper heavier than 20 lb, get a roller cleaner paper from the manufacturer
and run it through to clean the rollers.

My Canon IP90 printer in printing blank paper

If the inkjet printer has not been used for some time, and the ink cartridges are full then the print head nozzles may be blocked. If running the maintenance nozzle cleaning does not clear the print head nozzles then the print head will need to be replaces.
NOTE - inkjet print heads are not cheap, it may be better to purchase a new injet printer.

Canon ip90: paper won't pull through rollers. Rollers are turning and nothing seems to be lodged in printer. The case is not bent in any way.

It's a plastic case and you can't see without removing covers. If it's been packed in luggage, any weight put on top it can bend and you can't see it from the outside. When the top is bent you might see from the front, but sometimes the bottom gets bent upward which also stops paper from going thru. The covers are plastic and return to normal shape after bending the inside parts.

Paper will not start feed in on it own

Probably no paper jam, but put a ruler across the top across where the switches are, if it's bowed down some the frame has been bent. Any weight, luggage,etc placed on top can bend the frame and that restricts the paper path and you need a shop repair.

My paper won't go through my canon ip90v straight

You may need to clean the pickup rollers. These are the ones that pull the paper out of the tray and begin feeding them into the printer. It is likely that one side may be slighly gummy and the paper is sticking to it or the other side may be slick with miniscule paper particles that is causing it to slide right over the paper surface and not grabbing it at all.
