There is only one solution to the problem with the i80. Here it is: there is nothing jammed. This problem is the result of the top of the printer being pushed down, effectively crushing the paper feed path by a sixteenth of an inch, right at the center of the machine. Likely this is the result of being carried in a travel bag full of other stuff, like the power supply, or from things being placed to rest on top of the printer. The solution is to open the two top covers, to grasp the main steel bar that runs the entire width of the printer with a pair of long-nosed pliers and to simply apply upward pressure. This will, in turn, lift a black plastic paper guide that has been pushed down into the path of the paper by the slightly bent metal. The printer will happily feed paper after this relatively simple fix. Mark the problem up to bad industrial design (though the mechanisms of the printer are otherwise ingeniously well thought out).

Splotching and spotting ink


The roller cleaning will require you to remove cover to clean the full roller with alcohol to remove ink build up. Have you tried to just run/feed a blank piece of paper through to see if you have roller ink roll off?

This also sounds like a bad cartridge with clogged jets...

Sounds/looks like it's printing but paper comes out clean - there's lots of ink and I've changed the ink levels


Hi, have you checked to make sure you removed the sticky tape cover from the end of the cart?
Sounds silly I know but I have done this before & it's easy to forget when your in a hurry :-)

Canon i80 printer


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

get a q-tip and wet one end in water.  run wet q-tip along head a few times.  then take dry end and run along head again to dry it.  then run wet end again on the absorber side of head.  then dry with dry end.  replace parts, do a deep cleaning, and try a test print.
