Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The paper tries to go thru but only one side pulls it and it goes sideways and gets jammed.
I had the same paper feed grabbing problem on pixma MP 610 printers - take a flashlight and look down into the feed rollers inside - deep - I found a paperclip in one and a hair clip in another - you need a pair of very fine pincer pliers to extract so you dont damage the roller assembly's made of plastic - and voila no more misfeeds and grabbing on the right side - hint - dont put anything on top of the printers because when you lift the scanner cover, it nicely slides anyting on top into the paper feed assembly and results in a jam

That sounds just like what I fixed yesterday. I had to take off the side plate of the printer, which is one screw on top that you can see, behind the scanner lid. And the other you can see at the front when you open the whole lid, it sort of unclips once you unscrew it. I found paper in the side that it had been chewing up most and removed it and put it all back together and now it works. Dont forget to turn off the power. Good luck. Sharina
