Canon Mx450 series printer is not taking up paper


Good day everyone. Everytime I try to print with my printer for awhile, it is unable to pick up the paper out of the spool properly and damage the paper by just trying to fed it in. How can I fix this issue?20210406_085033.jpg20210406_085950.jpg

I recommend running a roller cleaning. Please click HERE for the steps. If this does not resolve the issue, your printer would require service.

My Canon MG 3620 printer pulled the paper halfway in and stopped, resulting in a "paper jam" message.  I can find instructions for clearing the jam from inside or from the output tray, but my paper hasn't gotten that far in (don't see anything when I open from the front or the back).  The only reference I can find to clearing a jam from the input tray is a warning not to pull it out. I may indeed need to clean the print rollers, but the first step is to take out any paper, so I can't try till I get the paper out.  [Sorry if this message doesn't quite belong here, even though it did begin with printer not taking up the paper properly -- I couldn't find a "paper jam" message that seemed to fit.]
