Canon PIXMA MP600 printer - paper feed

I have used the printer for about 6 months now with no problems. However lately whenever the paper feeder starts to feed in a sheet of paper, the paper skews in one direction and thus jams. It acts as though the roller is pulling on only one side.

I appreciate any help you can offer.

Issue: Paper feeds skewed
Solution: Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Operation Panel - MP600

Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Unit's Operation Panel If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips.

  2. Use the <Feed Switch> button to select the paper source where you do the paper feed roller cleaning. Click for here additional information.

Always have code 5700


5700 is a sheet feeder error, the feeder in the back where you put fresh paper. What I find most often is something has fallen in the paper slot stopping the paper from feeding. Sometimes ink pens, money, paper clips, nails, candy, and even jewelry. You can turn the printer over and shake it, or look inside with a flashlight and small mirror. Last time was a sheet rock screw. If you find nothing, it's probably a shop repair to look inside.

When I try to print only one side of the paper is pulled down


Probably you have a object which blocks paper from left side on feeder.Look carefully using flashlight in the feeder.If you don't see anything the printer must be disassembled.

Canon MP600 paper jam


I recently had the same problem and was very bummed, because I like the printer, having received it as part of an Apple bundle promotion.
The problem I was having is that I had paper in the rear (auto sheet feeder) area and when I'd try to print, all I heard was clicking and then I'd get a message that there was no paper installed.

Here's what to do.
On the panel, on the left side, there's a button called "Feed Switch."
You'll notice that there's a graphic of the printer to the left of the button with 2 lights. Push the Feed Switch button to toggle the light from the front tray (cassette) to the rear tray (auto sheet feeder)... and when the light is on the rear try (vs. the front tray) you're all set.
This will fix the problem.
