You may be missing a very small jam. Use a torch and tweezers, check down the back, also open cover, check even where you think paper wouldn't jam. Especially in teeth, rollers. Look for foreign debris as well as paper. Also, turn off, unlplug all cables/usb etc and replug, turn on. Finally, never load more than about 20 fine sheets at a time, reset printer settings to default. As a last resort, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer.

Printer will not feed paper straight grabs one side and pulls the paper crooked and crumples the paper


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.

Paper won't feed properly and jams. the paper starts to feed then twists and jams.


There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.

How to fix error code 5100 for canon ip6320D. it appearing while head cleaning.


This is either due to a physical error caused by a paper jam, or incorrectly seated ink. To fix:
Press down and hold the "On/Off" button, which is located on the printer's operator panel, for one second. Wait 15 seconds and then tap the button again. Attempt to print or scan a document.
Check the paper feed tray on the front end of the Canon MX700 to see if there is any paper visibly stuck inside the printer. Open the printer cover by gripping the front edge of the printer and lifting upwards.
Grab the edge of the jammed paper and gently pull towards you to remove the paper from the paper feeder. Unplug the Canon's power cable and USB cable, and then turn the printer around.
Pull off the rear plastic cover tab and check if there is any visible paper jam. Grab the edge of the paper and gently pull toward you until the paper is removed.
Push the rear plastic cover tab back into place, and reconnect the power cable and USB cable. Attempt to print or scan another document to see if the error is resolved.
Lift open the printer's cover again and wait for the ink carriage to slide into view. Press the "Push" button on the front of the first ink tank. Pull the tank out and then push it back into place to ensure it is properly seated.
Repeat the process with the other three ink tanks, and then close the printer's cover. Power the printer off and then back on again.

Paper feeder grabs right edge of paper, twisting the page and causing paper jam. Cannot correct


This is usually by paper dust accumulating on the feed rollers. Clean them with rubbing alcohol. You may need to remove part of the outer case to access them. Good luck!

Canon ip3300 paper feed not working properly


There is a small switch on the bottom left on the front of the printer that was selecting envelope feed instead of paper feed. Changing this fixed the problem.

Riso GR3770 will not pull the paper through once it passes the initial feed assembly. The paper ''picks up'' just fine, but after the lead edge enters the machine, it kicks off impression and gives a...


what happens sometimes is the rear side of the registration (shiny silver color) roller becomes worn down so bad that the spring cannot grab properly. the registration roller, in this case, would have to be replaced.

the way to check is by getting to the back of the machine, and if this is the cause, the spring should be a little wobbly on the shaft. with a new roller, the spring fits snug, and grabs properly for it to feed.

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.

Machine not feeding paper through


try cleaning the rubber rollers with a damp cloth and make sure there clean. also check to see if the paper is making contact with paper.
if that fails check the leading edge of the paper for damage incase something maybe blocking paper.

Make sure that it is installed properly ... going under not OVER. Does the paper feed when the paper feed key is depressed ??

1. Lift the paper holder up.
2. Fold the leading edge of the paper roll 3 to 5 cm. (Do not fold it slantwise.)
3. Insert the paper roll from the left side of the paper holder and make sure the paper
roll is set in the proper direction (with the paper feeding from the bottom).
4. Insert the leading edge of the paper into the opening directly behind the print
mechanism.
5. Press the paper feed key and feed the paper under the edge of the paper cutter.
