Canon PIXMA MP190 - paper pulls to one side and ja
There is something like a pencil, film cartridge, coin, etc.stuck
in there. It has happened to me twice. Just shining a flashlight in it didn't help but shaking it out worked every time. Hope the helps you , that is SO frustrating.
What did I find? a packet of pocket tissues in there. That could have been an expensive trip to the repair shop.
Life Saver!!! :)
Was almost going to toss the damn thing out the window, i read this, gave shaking a go.
Fucking pet food fell out of the printer!!
Now it works fine :)
THANKS PAL, WORKED (APRIL 2013)
Cheers! (Never mind upside down the printer nearly went out of the window til I came here!)
One working printer now- minus magnet from nearby filing cabinet. THANKS EVERYONE!
Printer now working properly again.
THANK YOU soo much!
i had tried many things, before landing to this forum, and shaked it...
it worked, small magnet toy came out.
working now like a charm.
My Canon MP470 pulled paper to one side. Thanks for the simple solution. It worked and made doing my taxes a little less of a pain.
OMG you are tooo awesome this printer has been old faithful I was so sad. Funny how a post from 6 years ago saved my butt. Took me a couple of tries but now I have a blue crayon I'm sure my two year old was trying to share!!
I tried turning it upside down and nothing happened. Then I saw one post that said too much or not enough paper may cause this to happen. So why trying to fix this problem I was in printer management, operate your printer. And under that I was in maintenance for Canon MP190. Under maintenance there is an option for roller cleaning. I finally forced A larger stack of paper through my roller after many tries and then all of a sudden I had a paper jam but the paper all came out. When I open the front of my printer lo and behold there was a bread tie sticking out. I pulled the rest of it out through the front . Thank God for my persistence and this thread.
Worked like a charm!! At this point I had already opened up the printer, taken out the cartridges, poked around in the innards with a BBQ skewer ...but couldn't find anything. I wouldn't have thought of shaking it in fear of ..well, breaking something. Did it and a thumbtack came flying out. Thanks!
This post is almost ten years old and it surely just helped me! At first I tried the shaking and nothing came out, so I kept trying the roller cleaning setting and tried sending a thinker piece of paper through like suggested earlier in some of the comments. The paper jammed and when I pulled it out, out popped an oil pastel! So heres to hoping that did the trick! Just finished the roller cleaning test and all the paper came thru with out jamming. YAY!
2019 and you're still a hero.
I really needed something printed and I have had this trusty printer forever and I couldn't believe when it started to jam up! I figured it had finally gone to the printer graveyard and I was gonna start shopping for a new one when this thread popped up in my search. I thought no way because I had looked in there and even shined a flashlight. My 5 year old son asked why I was unplugging it and then was very confused when I started shaking it upside down. All of a sudden he goes there was a pen in there! We plug it back in and sure enough it's back to being my trusty printer. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
