When the printer pulls a sheet down it grabs the right side of the sheet (as you face the machine) leaving the left side up, to warp the sheet and make a grinding noise trying to pull the sheet in. Of course the page doesn't come through for printing !! What can I do ? Thanks, Jim Sloan, jsloan6@cfl.rr.com The printer is a : Canon PIXMA iP 1600

    if your problem is still not solved try this reset your Canon printer, turn the printer off with the power button. Then disconnect the data cable from the printer. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable. Then turn the printer back on.

    unplugging for 10 min is overkill, :30 sec will do, any juice in chips will be drained

There is a broken gear on the left side, specifically the paper feeding gear, take this unit to a local service center as the gears are not user replaceable and you cant purchase them from local shops... contact the printer manufacturer to get a local service center CANON

I have a printer canon inkjet mp140 and i don't know how to insert the paper from the tray that is down or from the upside tray


Well, you should insert the paper "from the upside tray". Follow these steps:
Align the edges of the paper before loading it;
Open the paper support of "the upside tray" and pull out the paper support extension;
Open the paper output tray ("tray that is down");
Adjust the position of the paper thickness lever;
Load the paper in the auto sheet feeder with the print side facing UP;
Align the paper stack against the right side of the auto sheet feeder.
Pinch the paper guide and slide it against the left side of the paper stack.

The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't


1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

Pull out the extension completely.

Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

Faxing


if using the feeder probably face up as it will likely pull the document in and invert it to lay face down on the scanning glass.

if you lift up the feeder (like lifting the top of a copy machine), then it would be face down on the glass.

there should be an image on the feeder illustrating how the document should be placed - if it looks like a page with lines on it with a bent corner then it is face up.

Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.

Hi gtiedith, sometimes the carridge just gets stuck. Leave the lid open. Power off the printer. Clean the carridge metal rod with a tissue. (Just a little wipe should do it. Than grab the carridge & slide it to the right about 2 inches. Close the lid & power on the printer. It should be just fine. Print a test page if you want to.

Have a good day!
