Canon MG4250: Print Head keeps hitting the left side and shuts down

Apr 30, 2019
Hello, I've found my old printer in the basement.
The one problem I've had with it, was that it didnt grab the paper.
I found out that its a common issue and can be solved by cleaning the rubber feets of the paper intake.
Okay I could have done it with double sided tape as I've found out now, but I disassembled the whole printer because I also wanted to clean the inside.
Did everything good, got it assembled in one piece, and no screws missing.
But now I'm facing a new problem.
I cleaned the encoder tape with Alcohol already, so there's visible dirt on it.

Here's a Video of the problem in Action.
By the way the Error code is : 5400
I looked it up, but its just a generic "theres a problem" error.
