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

Paper jam problem


Hi Sarah, do you have an epson printer?
In these years i had this problem with a lot of Epson Printers...
Well, if this is the situation, i'm sorry to tell you that this is caused by the printer pick up rollers that are worn, so... you can try to wipe with alcohol the surface of the rollers, but there's no way to fix this...
You can try to gently push the paper inside the printer when it takes the sheet

Mp499 The paper tries to go thru but only one side pulls it and it goes sideways and gets jammed.


The feed wheels on the one side are either worn out or have some scrap paper stuck on them. Take a good look , after removing the paper tray, if it has one , inside the machine. It might be possible to turn the machine around and see into it from behind, if there is an access door on the back.

Getting message that I have a paper jam but there isn't on to be fpund


Try checking the printer for foreign objects that might be interfering with the paper path. Tilt the printer sideways and try shaking it a bit. After that, try printing. If the issue persists, clean the rollers of the printer.

Paper jams when I put it in the tray to fax (from the top tray)


your wheel on one side is impacted with small pieces of paper
this causes the paper flow to go unevenly you need to clean you wheels on both sides oil them and wipe dry with a paper towel
then do the paper feed jam clear and let a few pieces go thru to pick up any remiaining debris

Paper pulls to right side and then jams it all started when paper jam i pulled it out and ever since then when loading paper it pulls to the right and then jams


Try running a good sized thickness paper thru it to clear out the cutters.
Sometimes when they jam some residual paper is left in the space between the cutter wheels and causes the paper to feed askew...
I use the cover from old phone books.

Paper jams


If you have some small twiser like you use to pull those nasty nose hairs, and pull the paper out with that. If that doesn't take a air compressor and gently blow it. A compress air will have some moisture in it and you don't want that to get on to the rollers.

HP scanjet 5590 pulls the paper half the way in and then starts pulling sideways and then gets stuck.


Have you checked to make sure there isn't previously jammed paper in the feeder?

It sounds like the paper is getting stuck on just one side which is causing the paper to start going sideways.

PAPER JAM:


OK, this is going to take a bit of nerve but it has worked every time (dozens) I have seen this problem. Switch off the printer and unplug, make sure the ink carriage is parked. Get a stiff piece of A4 card such as the backing from an A4 notepad. Place the card in the paper feed and push through quite firmly for the first half inch then open the scanner unit and watch the rollers inside the printer as you push it further. It should push out anything blocking the paper path. Push the card fully through in the direction of paper feed, never try to pull paper jams or anything else out backwards if it can at all be helped.

Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
