My cannon printer mp180 will not feed the paper anymore. It hangs up on the right side and jams. When I pull the paper out there are small tears on the right side and wrinkles. I have tried cleaning it by the book but nothing helps.

Paper feed jams on right hand side after I pulled bits of an A4 that came out ripped


Bruno:

You did not get all the pieces of that A4 paper out of the paper path. There is still a small shard of paper in the right side of the paper feed area. Use a flashlight to look carefully in the paper feed area and gently use tweezers to remove the piece of paper. If you pulled the sheet of A4 paper backwards out of the feed area, you may have dislodged the paper feed sensor (a small plastic finger that sticks down in the paper path to tell the printer that the paper has passed.) Be careful with the tweezers... if you break that sensor, there is no fixing it.

Always paper jam error on my cannon 3530


Check for a paper fragment at either end inside the printer chamber or underneath the paper feed roller cover plates. Anything that holds a paper feed sensor arm open will give you paper feed errors, and they can be remarkably small.

Printer head going one side and given beep


IF the jammed paper tears and you cannot remove the paper either from the paper output slot or from the transport unit, or the jammed paper remains inside the machine, remove the paper following the procedure below. 1. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. 2. Open the paper output cover. Remove the paper on the front tray if any.
Important:
    Do not touch the clear film (A). If the paper or your hands touch these parts and blot or scratch them, the machine can be damaged.

3. Make sure that the FINE cartridge holder does not hang over the paper. If the FINE cartridge holder hangs over the paper, move the FINE cartridge holder to the right edge or the left edge whichever is easier to remove the paper. When you move the FINE cartridge holder, hold the FINE cartridge holder and slide it slowly to the right edge or the left edge.
4. Hold the jammed paper with your hands.
If the edge of paper is jammed near the paper output slot, pull the edge of paper to the position where you can hold it with your hands.
5. Pull the paper slowly not to tear it, then pull the paper out.

6. Make sure that all the jammed paper is removed. If the paper is torn, a piece of paper may remain inside the machine. Check the following and remove the piece of paper if it remains.
7. Close the paper output cover, then reload the paper.
All print jobs in the queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.

Feed paper is pulled into the right side of printer (facing Printer) and jams. Cleaning no help.Canon Pixma MP600.


I had the same problem,tried and failed with all maintenance tasks including cleaning all rubber rollers and belts,manually turning the rollers and belt,only succeeded in forcing out some small paper debris,but still jamming.Googled for answers,even looking at a technician service manual post by Baido.com,none have provide a tried and succeeded answer,even the paid answers by experts were suggesting the rollers needed to be replaced due to wear and tear,but we are only light duty user,it is unlikely.Next thing you know $3 a question,20 questions later,you are out $60 and still end up with a broken printer . I finally used thick heavy photo papers to test print as they are unlikely to rip and tear when jammed,the first time it made a very loud and very loud grinding noise,I cancelled the printing immediately and slowly and firmly pulled the photo paper out from the front ejecting compartment,a small piece of what looked like a spiral bounded calender type paper came out with the pulling.Tried again with photo paper for printing,this time it made the same loud noise again,stopped print immediately,thought I f-cked up,while carefully and firmly pulling the photo paper ,a small piece of Styrofoam came out.After that every printing test for front paper loader and the front bottom cassette loader work flawlessly with plain paper.I realized that the front loading feeder tray iwas the entrance culprit of these small shits that got inside without any body's knowing.Taped the front feeder tray close,use only the bottom cassette feeder as it is completely enclosed,nothing will get in there.Because a lot of people put things on top of the printer cover when not in use,**** got in there accidentally and stupidly.Hope this will help, saved myself a lot of money and time in setting up new printer to the local and wireless network,I am not a techno guy.Try at your own risk,I had nothing to lose,thought I had to buy a new printer,now the printer is working like new,smooth,quite and fast.

Paper got stuck and forced to slide out then printer does not work anymore


Usual thing is forcing paper out SOMETIMES tears a small piece off which OFTEN jams in the paper feed sensor of the printers.

It is often hard to see this, so get a bright light and look for that or similar things. There are often several phot-electric sensors that can have paper shreds and shut the printer down.

Printer will not feed paper


there could be a small paper jam or then theres a problem with the pickup but try this solution first in making sure theres no jam:

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper jam


I had this problem the other day. I turned out that I had a small bit of polystyrene foam had got trapped just before the white plastic rollers you can see in front of the toner sponge where the cartridge head runs when you lift the lid to change ink.

I discovered it by noting that on power-up these rollers turn as if to feed paper back into the paper feeder (i.e. "backwards through the printer"), so I tried to see if I could get a sheet to feed backwards and noticed something was trying to stop the right-hand side of the paper feeding in. Soon after I noticed the bit of foam through the right-hand side slot in the white plastic section above the roller. A quick removal with small tweezers et viola!

Do not continue this way, you are sure to ruin your paper sensor or the like. Most probably you have a paper jam inside near the carriage or roller. Open at front, check inside for paper jam.
