I tried this and it worked (thanks to a suggestion from someone else but can't find his name right now) --

I found a slender piece of cardboard, the front off one of my 1-subject notebooks. I cut the jagged edges off, made sure there wasn't any debris or loose crumbs of paper. Put about 20 sheets of paper into the printer and put this cardboard as the first sheet. Pressed the copy button. When it started to attempt to feed, I forced it through.

What did it find?? A moth had flown into the printer at some time, gotten smushed, smashed and stuck -- and was preventing the paper from feeding through! OMG, I almost tossed this Canon MP210 in the garbarge.

So thanks to you guys with ideas about cardboard and a little muscle. I ran another piece through just to clean out all the stickiness (and the remnants of the moth's body). Works fine now.

MP210 Paper feeding incorrectly - SOLUTION!

Description of problem:
It will not load the paper. There is no paper jam, its the right paper size, I cleaned the reels the way the website said, and still could not get the paper to go through. It is as if one of the rollers stopped working, it only pulls the paper to the right side. 


SOLUTION:

Aim:  to remove any bits of paper/dust that may happen to have fallen into the rear side of the printer, but which the Roller Cleaner utility fails to remove.  We need to pass the paper through the printer to remove any blockage.

First, try feeding different paper sizes (obviously smaller than A4).. until it feeds correctly.. Usually A5 has no problems. 

Next, cut out an A4 sheet of paper in such a way that its width starts at A5 size (14.7cm) and keeps increasing to A4 size (21cm).  Therefore the printer will start to feed the paper correctly, then since it increases its size from the side it would remove any dust/object that is keeping it from loading correctly in A4 size.  
NB while feeding this irregular shaped sheet, start by pinching the Paper Guide along the left side of the paper, however once it loads the paper remove the Paper Guide immediately.
 
Now Problem Solved! Gud luck!

Our printer had this problem 3 months ago but I didn't even think to Google it until now...after we wasted 40 bucks on a cheap printer that didn't even work plus ink cartridges for it. Frustrated I decided to google our paper feeding problem and followed the instructions with force feeding the cardboard through and VOILA! Our printer is back!

I had been having the same problem: the paper would only feed through the right side of the printer, and I cut a paper so it would look like this: l I
I I
\ I
\____I
Then I fed the paper into the printer, and it got stuck half way in. I opened the printer and forced it out of the printer the way it is supposed to come out and I got the paper out, but also some strange black stuff. I think this black stuff was causing the paper jam because now the printer works fine!
Just be careful with the printer, try not to brake it.

I firstly removed the cartridges as suggested and then put them back in to make sure they were in fully. No change. So, I tried the thin carboard method but it wouldn't go through ie I couldn't force it, once the printer had jammed the rollers stopped. So, one last try before I chuck it and buy another budget bonanza (this one has lasted two years so I didn't feel too bad about it). I unplugged it and forced the cardboard through, pulling it from the exit end once the cardboard had come through enough to allow a grip. It worked!!

You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning.

Lexmark x1270 wont print color even though the cartridge is full.


A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:

1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page.

The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.

If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:

1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Power the printer off.
2. Press and hold the "Paper Feed" button.
3. While still holding the "Paper Feed" button, press and release the "Power" button. Continue holding the "Paper Feed" button.
4. When the printer starts pulling paper, release the "Paper Feed" button. It should print a test page at this point.
5. Power the printer off, as this test is continuous.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, please try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only a color cartridge installed (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed). If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know.

3. Press the "Power" button once while continuing to hold the "Paper Feed" button.
4. Keep holding the "Paper Feed" button until one sheet is cycled through.
5. The test is continuous.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously).

You will need to do the following diagnostic tests to determine the exact cause of the error: · Remove the ink cartridges · Perform the self test (test B below) · Test the ink cartridges A. To remove the ink cartridges: Switch the printer on by pressing the green button. Open the front cover of the printer. The cartridge carrier should move to the center of the opening. Remove both cartridges. If the carrier does not move to the center of the opening, you will need to remove the cartridges by hand. Turn the printer off and remove the power supply cable (the small circular one) from the back of the printer. Open the front cover of the printer. Inside the printer, locate the silver metal carrier bar on which the print carriage slides. Locate the black rubber carrier belt above the carrier bar. This belt has tracks on its inner portion. Grab the top portion of the belt and move it toward the right. As you move this, the ink cartridge carrier will move to the left. Continue to move the belt until the carrier is in the center of the opening. Now pull both cartridges out. B. To perform the self-test: Disconnect both the power cable and the USB or parallel cable. After one minute has passed, plug the power supply cable (the small black circular one) back in. (This step is necessary to reset the printer.) Turn the printer off by pressing the green power button. Hold down the grey paper feed button. Turn the printer on by pressing the green button. After the printer begins to feed paper, release the grey button. Once the paper exits the printer, press the green button to turn the printer off. If the power light blinks twelve times while no cartridges are installed, there is a problem with the printer. If this is a new purchase, you can also exchange the printer at the point of purchase. If the paper went through the printer as if printing was occurring, you will need to do some more testing. Continue as instructed below. C. To test the ink cartridges: Open the front cover and insert only the black ink cartridge. Make sure that you push it back until it snaps into place. Close the front cover. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the black cartridge. If not, proceed to the next step. Turn the printer off using the green power button. Hold down the grey paper-feed button. Turn the printer on using the green button. After the printer begins to feed paper, release the grey button. Once the paper exits the printer, press the green button to turn the printer off. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the black cartridge. If a page came through with a black line, your black cartridge is working properly. Now you need to take the black cartridge out and perform the same steps with the color cartridge. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the color cartridge. If a page came through with colored lines, your color cartridge is working properly. If one of the cartridges is causing the problem, you will need to replace that cartridge. If it is a new cartridge, please exchange it at the point of purchase. Good luck
