Question about Canon i80 InkJet Printer
Hi, my canon i80 printer wont feed paper through at all. even when i push the buttom 3 times. the printer makes an awful buzzing start up noise. the printer is about 3 years old and i truly never dropped it and i barely used it. i did clean the print head and remove any excess ink and paper from ink slots. any help greatly apprciated. thanks
There is only one solution to the problem with the i80. Here it is: there is nothing jammed. This problem is the result of the top of the printer being pushed down, effectively crushing the paper feed path by a sixteenth of an inch, right at the center of the machine. Likely this is the result of being carried in a travel bag full of other stuff, like the power supply, or from things being placed to rest on top of the printer. The solution is to open the two top covers, to grasp the main steel bar that runs the entire width of the printer with a pair of long-nosed pliers and to simply apply upward pressure. This will, in turn, lift a black plastic paper guide that has been pushed down into the path of the paper by the slightly bent metal. The printer will happily feed paper after this relatively simple fix. Mark the problem up to bad industrial design (though the mechanisms of the printer are otherwise ingeniously well thought out).

I had the same problem with my mp 160, I tried to print but the printer only took the left side of the page and the paper got jammed. I pulled it out but I think a piece was left inside the printer. Error message was blinking, but somehow I got the printer moving again. I tried to print again, but this time the printer would take 1/10 of the whole page and stop, even though rollers were moving. My solution for this was to take a piece of thin cardbore(I used a magazine cover), cut it in a shape of A4, put it in printer, printed it and when the rollers start moving I forcebly pushed the cardboard through. Now it seems to work fine.

get a q-tip and wet one end in water. run wet q-tip along head a few times. then take dry end and run along head again to dry it. then run wet end again on the absorber side of head. then dry with dry end. replace parts, do a deep cleaning, and try a test print.

Right ... After 5 minutes of looking and fiddling I have found the solution!! press the button abover HOME and it should change the tray in which you are printing from :D

Press the button on the right hand side of the printer. Lift the lid, pull up the little gray handle. Rock the print head container a bit and you'll see a little metal bar. Grab that and pull straight up.

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead
1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning
And if that not work
Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.
Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
