Canon i560 has traction problem

Hi I have a canon i560 with a left bias when it pulls an a4 sheet of paper.

One side of the paper is pulled down for printing normally but the other side is prevented from being pulled down normally.  I think one of the rollers is having a problem.  I also observe a squeeking noise during the sheet feed process.  Do you normally oil printer rollers or is my printer a FRU?

Any ideas welcome.

>>   Do you normally oil printer rollers  <<  NO
if you can open it, i would clean the rollrs with a damp cloth, and vacuum it for paper debris and dust

If the rollers are slipping because they are coated with paper dust, cellotape or packing tape will remove it. Stick the tape on the roller, pull it off, turn the roller a bit and apply more tape.

And, as nobus said, do NOT use oil on the rollers. They need to grip, not slip.

In the end I bought a laser printer for more economical printing ... thanks for all you help.

A laser (even a colour laser) will certainly save you a lot of money, compared to an inkjet!
