I guess you have broken one of the printhead supports. What you can try is to open the printer and set it into place.

 

BTW: It would be very helpful if you can post a picture of the broken part so that we talk about the same issue.

Will not print - paper jams - when open the back cover paper comes out on its own


Remove the paper from behind the back cover, then remove the paper tray and check for any other jammed paper. Once you've removed it all, turn the printer off then back on. Before printing again, take the paper out of the tray, fan it out, and flip it over so it's upside-down. (Paper curl and static can cause jams, and turning the paper over can often correct those issues.)

Does it still jam?

My printer won't catch the paper to print. It make all the noise, but won't pull the paper through.


Hi,
You can try the following. Remove all paper from the printer and turn printer off. Try opening the printer as if you were to remove the ink cartridges and check for any paper jammed in the printer. If there is a paper jammed try to remove it. if there is no paper jammed in the printer then try the following remove all paper from the feeder and flip the printer upside down and shake it a little. Sometimes things will fell inside of the paper feeder and will block the paper path thus causing the printer not to be able to pull the paper.

I got a Paper Jam message while trying to print on Avery business card paper. Pulled back the jammed paper by reaching into the tray. Tried printing again, Jammed again. Removed the Jam Clear Cover in...


First off, NEVER EVER turn a componant upside down and shake it. Second, open the printer up and search for any additional paper. A lot of time a paper jam isn't just one sheet, especially if you have a faster printer. I would also try using some rubber rejuvinator on the printer so that it picks the paper up better so it goes through the printing cycle better.

Paper always on right when loading to be printed


Canon Printers are notorious for paper jams. Don't throw it out the window just yet, there are several solutions. Visibly check that there is nothing obstructing your printer (use a flashlight). A kitty may have hacked up a hairball (just kidding). Try a can of compressed air to blow out any foreign objects as well as turning your machine gently upside down to be absolutely positive nothing is obstructing the roller assembly. Next, open your Word Pad and type anything (like how much you are enjoying your Canon Printer Jamming and how you will recommend Canon Printers to all your friends), Use an A4 paper size 'POSTER PAPER' (the same size that you normally use (8 and one half inch by 11 inches) as this is thicker than what you would use. From your Word Pad, click PRINT, you will need to run the paper through several times and this will clean out any built up residue. If you do not have 'POSTER PAPER' a 'MAGAZINE COVER' will suffice (just be certain that it is the same size). After you have run your 'POSTER PAPER' through, load your regular printing paper normally and this should resolve your 'FANTASTIC CANON PRINTER'.

Canon MP160 all in one


don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Yesterday someone replied to my problem, i tried it this morning and its fixed 1st time.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


I've had this error for the last 2 months and periodically tried to fix it. - I finally read a suggestion to try to push something thicker than a plain sheet of paper through. I cut a side of a manilla folder into a 8.5"x11" and let the printer try to grab it during a copy. After doing it's normal "grab the right side until it's skewed and stop", I continued to try to push it through. I wasn't able to push it to the printing area, but I saw that a piece of something (not much bigger than a bread crumb) came out of the feeder into the interior print area. - I tried another copy, and it was very slightly improved but still skewing and jamming the paper. Suggest unplugging it before performing this...I then lifted the interior piece of plastic (white color for my Pixma MP 150 - which would be located above the paper as it was fed into the print area) slightly to allow any jammed items to come through. Out comes small pieces and then a larger piece of cracker (about the size of 1/4 a cheez-it). Ok I feel dumb, but I'm glad I found something. I picked out the crumbs and did a careful vacuum in the interior and exterior paper feed. Slight warning: The foam bottom below the ink is not secured and will get sucked up by the hose. And note, that I did try vacuuming the intake and interior previously with no improvement. The nozzle on my vacuum is too large to get into the bottom of the exterior intake. - For good measure, I also picked up the printer and turned it upside down and shook vigorously in a couple angles. I saw a couple more small crumbs come out. - My printer is now feeding the paper correctly and successfully made a copy/print.

False paper jam warning on Canon Pixma iP3000 printer


I have been using the Canon MP180 PIXMA for almost three years now without a hitch until I received a paper jam warning which I could not resolve. I Googled "Canon PIXMA paper jam" today and landed on this site. I turned the printer upside-down and shook vigorously. Out popped a small pebble-like bit of concrete which somehow found it's way into my printer. I guess our hardwood floor installation on the floor above had shaken up some old plaster and concrete bits that had lodged in our drop-down ceiling from our 3rd floor bathroom renovation last year and this little ****** came through an opening in our rec-room (where the computer and printer are) drop-down ceiling. A very strange sequence of events, that I would not have suspected, but happy to say that your advice here did the trick and the printer is a tough and trustworthy little printer afterall! Thank you.
