After a paper jam, I attempted to make a copy. I heard a clacking sound and the paper in the carriage would not feed. However, I can single-feed the paper from the side and the copier works fine without any noise.

Re: Canon PC920 paper feed "clacking" & not working.
Check the tray and make sure the guides are set correctly, clacking sound is usually because the tray is set for Legal and has Letter, the paper is towards the bac of the tray and the pick up assembly is making the noise,
otherwise the tray is either not going up (broken gear, )

I just had this error message appear on my computer screen and the 6A00 on my MP830 printer at the same time. I heard this error mean a few things (paper jam, ink carriage stuck), though not sure what it does actually mean. I moved the carriage back-and-forth, blasted compressed air and checked for paper jams. When nothing worked, I looked inside and saw a lot of spilled ink, I'm guessing from not using genuine Canon ink. I blotted the inside with paper towels (use gloves!!),especially the far right, and took out the ink cartridges and blotted the carriage. I replaced everything, powered the printer off and on, and it worked fine. I would suggest first to slide the carriage back-and-forth and look for paper jams before cleaning the ink. Hope this works for you.
Make sure the paper size dial is set correctly for size and orientation of paper loaded (on the front right corner of the paper tray). The copier will display paper jam every time if this dial is incorrectly set. After this has been confirmed, if it still jams, try cleaning the paper feed rollers with soapy water or isopropyl alcohol (make sure rollers are dry before attempting to copy again) Let me know, please
the noise could be the heat rollers have squared of this happens if the machine hasnt been used for a while the pressure makes a flat on the soft roller.. it cold also be the toner cartridge has settled. take it out and give it a good shake.. if you cansee if the scanner lamp and carriadge is moving when you run the copier up it mighht be saveable.. make sure the paper is new and dry as this can cause jams in hot section.. if you can see where the paper jam is when you do one copy check the guides as well and finally take the paper tray out and look at the condition of the rollers that feed the paper as they may be dirty and sliping the paper..Good Luck A
I had the same problem. I found a parts diagram here http://techno-parts.org/canon/220/320_220.php which showed that the springs hold the bar down. On mine, on each side, one of the spring tabs was broken.
I made a metal pin for one side and insert a screw on the other. Be sure and wrap the spring over the nylon bushing.
It could be a few things, but the times I've had similar problems it was either caused by the feed/gripper rollers in the paper trays being worn out, thus not feeding any paper or feeding half a sheet and then jamming.
Or, it could be that the elevator in your paper tray isn't lifting, but if it's taking paper it's probably the rollers.
