Hi Dianne
When paper bunches up it generally means there is an obstruction in the way - after the paper has gone into the rollers.
Sometimes it's as simple as a bit of debirs or even a pin off the pinboard has fallen in. However. a couple of instances have been that in the platen (the bit the paper passes over while the ink is being quirted) there is a strip of oddly cut sponge foam - and this foam as somehow come out of its seating and is getting in the way.
Open the printer as if you are going to replace the inks but take the whole print-head out. (take the inks out first then the print head) Then look at the metal plate and you'll see the foam. Is it dirty? is it wrinkled? is it sitting fluch with the surrounding surface?
Carefully remove it with tweezers (or rubber gloves) and give it a good wash in warm water until the water runs fairly clear.
With a damp piece of paper-towel, clean off the metal plate and the recess where the foam came from. When you are happy that it's clean squeeze the foam between some clean paper towel to remove as much water as possible and then carefully fit it back into the recess. - it's a bit fiddly but it will only go in one way round so you can't get it wrong.
Refit the print-head and the inks and see if matters have improved..
If they haven't then you will need to locate your nearest Canon centre.

SOURCE: Printer wont feed paper on one side

This may sound strange, but it works more often than not. Try unplugging it, turning it upside down and shaking it vigorously. Also, take some canned air and spray into where it feeds the paper. Just be careful not to spray into the ink-head.

My dell 2350 dn feeds to much paper causing jam


Step 1: Try fanning the paper at the feed edge before placing it in.
Step 2: Ensure that the paper is placed in with the edge curl up. When holding a bunch of paper between two fingers, the paper will naturally have a curl to it. It should be placed in "happy" (Edges up).
Step 3: Inside the printer's paper tray and where the feed mechanism is, locate the feed rollers and static feed pad. These will all be rubbery or "foam"-like. They should always be slightly tacky when rubbed against, however paper dust will eventually cause them to become slippery instead. Rubbing alcohol can be used to clean them with care and a Q-tip and recover the slightly rubbery, tacky feeling, thus resolving misfeeds.

There appears to be something in the way as the paper bunches up when I start to feed it through.
Is there some way of taking the back off this calculator?

Paper not feeding correctly


try to clean the carriage and see if a Q-TIP will reach the feed rollers. They probably still have some ink still on them.

IN MX-M350N SHOWS "REMOVE PAPER FROM TOP TRAY" AND DOESN'T PRINT


You probably have a paper jam in the auto feed unit. Open the auto feed and check for bunched up paper and if you don't find any open the side doors and check for paper jams there. Let me know what you find.

Paper pulls to right and bunches up when loading


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

I'm not sure if you've already checked this, but this was my issue. I, too, would try to print something and it would make a great deal of clunking noise but would then say that there was no paper and told me to load some. I went to the Canon site and before I actually went through the process of cleaning the print roller, I checked the feed switch button on the display panel. It's right below the ON/OFF button and, what do you know, it was set to feed from a paper cassette instead of the back loading tray. I pushed the button and it's now printing fine. I'm sure we must have accidentally hit the button when we were trying to turn the printer on or off quickly. Hope this does the trick! It's always nice when it's something easily fixed!

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.
