I reciently got a Canon Pixma MP170 from a friend as she has reciently bought a better printer. It does wvwrything I want it to do. but theres one problem. the paper feeder keep screwing up paper when it tries to print. I rang up Canon to ask how much they want to fix it and they wanted 60 quid out of me (cheecky basterds) just to have a look at it. If you wish I can send you a short clip of the printer screwing up the paper.

Re: Paper Screws up
No need for pictures, sounds like a very small missed paper jam. You need to get a torch and tweezers and go right into the printer near rollers, paper feeder, and down the back where paper feeds in, my bet is you will find a small piece of paper or a foreign object in there somewhere, regards lilacgerry

You can also try using a rubber eraser as the rollers are going. Just take a pencil and lightly rub along the length of the rollers as they are feeding. This should remove the film that clogs the rollers surface.
I would suggest you have a foreign object that has entered the paper feed path.
Tip the machine on its back and give a tap or two. You may even here something rolling around as you tip it back.
If you can't get it out you may have to remove the covers to get better access. Try http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com for a service manual if you are not sure how to remove the covers.
