Hi Stephen,

Sorry for the delay.

Here's the info:

Printer Canon G4210 pixma

im using on Mac OS Monterey 


it doesn't take the paper. I have a video but I don't know how to share it.



If the paper starts to feed and stop I recommend a roller cleaning. Please click HERE for the steps. 

If that does not resolve the issue, you printer may require service. If the printer is in it's 1 year warranty, I recommend reaching out to Canon support for your warranty options. You will need to register your Canon gear HERE to access additional support options.

If the printer is out of warranty, you would qualify for the Canon Upgrade program. This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service or are incompatible with a new or upgraded system. This program allows you the opportunity to purchase a replacement product discounted from the list price. Free ground shipping is included with your purchase.
