It is very likely there is some small object in the paper path. Often it is impossible to get without dismantling. Not an easy job on this model. a Canon dealer is recommended.

Just reinstalled printer and now it won't take the paper properly and only one side will go in

Check the small printer rollers where the paper goes in (feed rollers). All rollers should be rolling whenever you turn on the printer. The reason why you're having this issue is if one of the feed rollers has a problem, especially if the roller that has a problem is at the left or right side.

What is error code p2

Just use a soft dry tissue and clean the thin transparent strip along the printer carraige gently and make sure that it is transparent all along the strip. You have to open the printer from the front to do this and to get to where the printer head stands turn it on and the head will park in the middle so that you can clean the right side of the strip. Then all should work as is, it worked for me

Paper goes in squint drags to one side and jams

In my experience the usual reason for this is something (obstruction) in the paper feed. Make sure you have a really good look right down inside the paper path as quite small objects will stop a correct feed. The fact that it is one side makes me thing something is in there. I have serviced printers before with coins, paperclips etc that have found a way in.
