Canon PIXMA iP4950 will not feed paper. Just makes a wirring

This answer was rated:

Canon PIXMA iP4950 will not feed paper. Just makes a wirring noise. It does work occaisionally but only a single sheet.
I have opened the inspection panel at the back, but it seems to be clear
the problem is with both the front document feed and the rear feed
Thank you question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

When it makes the wirring noise, is the paper still moving? Or the paper remains stationary?
Thank you
