Question about Canon Pixma Mp250 Allinone Inkjet Photo Laser Printer

1 Answer

We have a Canon MP250 Pixma printer that recently has started acting up. When you prompt it to print...the paper feed causes a jam. The paper tilts to the right then jams. I unplugged it and looked in the paper loading area...cant see a thing....I even prompted through the cleaning help there...can you help me?

    Thanks for the quick reponse...I tried what you suggested...but the problem still exists...any other suggestions

  • Tom Frazee Nov 15, 2010

    I did what the technician suggested and still had a problem. I then put a very small mirror in the paper supply slot and discovered the problem: The problem was that my sons cuff links had fallen in the paper supply opening and couldn't see them.. after alot of patience and using a jumbo paper clip to make a makeshift hook....I was able to free them and remove them. I tested the machine and we are back in business....Thank you for your great service...

Try to adjust the paper guides, then check the rollers for any damaged or dirt which you may need to clean with a dry cloth. make sure they are align, Then use new set of paper and test the printer again. It seems that something is causing the paper to tilt to the right side causing the paper jam.

    try removing and reinstalling the cartridges, then print a test page and perform the catridge aligment process and see if that helps

My Canon PIXMA MP250 Inkjet isnt working?

Does the printer power up?If not,check the power cable or probably replace it.
If it does power up,disconnect everything including the usb connections and also turn off your PC.
Wait a while and then re-connect them all.Start the PC first and then turn on the printer.
Now try printing.If still cant print:-
  • You might have run out of ink.Check the cartridges and replace any dry ones.
  • Check for paper jams on the paper paths and manually remove any stuck papers.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Hello i have a canon mp250 printer and when i put paper in it i takes it at an angle and says paper jam what could the problem be and how can i fix it

When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

It won't feed paper

Hello, Welcome to

The paper feeder sensor in the APF is what might be causing your issue.

1. Check for any jammed paper in any part of the printer.
2. A jammed piece of paper can cause the paper not to feed.

If that is not the case you might need to have this looked at locally.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.

We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.

To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.
