You have a very small jam, and possibly need to reset your printer margins also. Take out all visible paper in tray. Open unit, get a torch and some tweezers. Thoroughly check all inside in rollers, near carriage for printer cartridges, left and right, and down the back where paper goes. I am wiling to bet you find a tiny scap or foreign object( i call them ujo's, unidentified jamming objects) my little boy jammed mine with a scrap off his toy typewriter!!! It was so small you clould barely see it. Tip: once fixed, regularly open unit and tidy rollers and paper area with a long thin soft bristled brush. Keep printer covered after it cools and breaths betwen usages. I do!!!

My canon pixma mx320 won't feed paper properly it seems to grab one side of paper and feeds it crooked then stops


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

It grabs the paper crookedly and causes it to


If you have previously had a paper jam, and it tore the paper, there could be a very tiny piece of paper stuck in the feed on the side...it only takes something very tiny to prevent the paper from feeding correctly...a child dropping a little piece of food, it could be anything...but I'd be about 90% sure that it's there. I found one once and it was so small it took forever to find it, and it was even harder to get out...you kind of have to work at it with some Q-tips, eyebrow tweezers2_bing.gif, a paperclip, something that you can go in and attempt to clear the feed. If you dont/can't find it you may have to take it apart, and that's not fun, and runs the risk of it "never" aligning correctly...so be persistant.

FYI...I had another guy with the very same post today, and gave him the same suggestion...he found a pen cap in the back of his printer, LOL...so get a flashlite, some very small tools, and have a look-see.

Paper not feeding properly, sometimes it goes through crooked and sometimes it isn't grabbed and put through printer


The little wheels that 'grab' the paper sometimes become too smooth and will simply slip on paper. There is wheel rejuvenator you might find at a local stationary store or you might want to try an alcohol soaked q-tip on the wheels.

Skewed or crooked paper uptake on Canon Pixma Mx300


Sounds like the roller(s) on the left side is missing or is slick (or split). You should have returned it to the place of purchase when you discovered the problem.
