SOURCE: paper jamming and feeding unevenly

I have the exact same problem. Until last night it worked perfectly, and when it ran out of paper, I put more papers in the back of the printer correctly and since then it won't print, it pulls paper to the right and the paper jams. I tooked the printer to the service and they say that I'm lucky that the warranty did not expired yet, cause the problem is a "manufacturing mistake", and that they will take it to the Canon service.

I realy hope they will do the job. I'm expecting to repair be done till tomorow.

Hey I had this problem too for about 6 months. Just press the "Feed Switch" button under the main display to switch it from feeding from the tray under the printer.

Canon ix4000 printer. Paper jam caused by sticky label, came off backing, stuck to roller. Normal paper jam cures not effective.


This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So since you have used adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers.So use a good clening of the rollers using methyl spirit. also check to see asthere can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.

The paper feeder wont do it's job,will not feed paper . Makes loud noise but no action, then screen asks to load paper.


The feeder on this model has 1 weak mounting place for the gears that drive the feed roller. The plastic stud that holds the gear will break off of the frame and cause the noises you hear and no paper feed. The only fix is to replace the sheet feeder assembly, about $30.00 for the part.

Shreeder Feeder jammed , appears cleared, makes a humming noise when attempting to feed paper and a similar noise when hitting the reverse button. Help please. Thank you.


It could be one of two problems and they are both usually caused by over feeding. Either the tooth rollers have junped out of their sockets or they are jammed tight with paper which would cause the first to happen also. There are safety switches but unplug the unit any way. Get on the output side of the shreeder and start pulling paper or remove the metal object that was dropped into its throat. Hopefully, you won't have to take it apart to put the rollers back into their sockets.

Printer paper reloading


So the feeder woek sometimes, If you have a warranty, bring it back, if not , the printer might have something stuck in his mechanism or a bit of spread ink, open it and check for any weird thing, you can do some cleaning but the mechanism need some greassy spot so do not be too clean
then try a recommanded paper for the printer like 80g for example and no more than 30 new pages to begin.
You can test the printer when open, you just need to push a few switch or button to make it run also you will be able to see where the noise come from.

Not feeding


Have you still getting the problem, have you done cleaning of Cartridge, its nozzle and Contact strip.. then cleaning of Printer roller or carriage rack.. Do a Service of it or get it done by Technician.

Also check the feeder tray.. to grab paper one by one by printer.. Manually

Take all updates for printer and OS.

Canon Pixma Paper feed not feeding!!


Either the pickup roller needs to be replaced,(a maintenance kit) or the tray isn't pushing the paper high enough to grab. Tyr loading a few more pages in the tray and making sure the tray is seated properly. Then try replacing the roller.
