This problem comes from the paper wheels. There are small size wheels that feed the paper into the machine. Once one of this wheels is slipping either you change just that wheel or you change the whole set of wheels. So I would take it to a repair shop to see how much it will cost. Other wise time to buy a new one. Good luck

You probably have a piece of paper stick in the pickup carraige. Get a flshlight and a tweezers and see if you can CAREFULLY pull out any pieces of paper...

The window has 4 tracks that it rides in. One on either side or the front and the back. Then the two tracks that the 3 rollers ride in. The small rollers get worn out. All of this is part of the power window motor assembly. The way to fix the problem is drill out the 4 large pop rivets around the motor. You will have to replace the rivets with bolts and lock nuts. Once you have to rivets removed then pull the motor and arms out. You will see one or more of the rollers have gone bad. You can get a new assembly at a salvage yard. But make sure that the rollers are in good shape. Sometimes also there are rubber tracks on the front and back of the door inside that the window moves up and down in. They look like weather strips. Sometimes they pop out. If this is the case. Just pop them back in. You can use a long flat head screwdriver.

On the bottom near the open position of the door is a latching mechanism that is actuated by a solenoid. If the solenoid goes bad or the latch jams the door will freeze in that position. I can tell you where the problem is but because of teh way these interlocks work to prevent damage to the electric closing motor I am unable to explain how to by pass them. You should be able to remove the locking latch so you can close the door manually but that will not solve all of the problems. A Haynes repair manual on the vehicle should give you the steps needed to by pass and repair this problem, Chilton's should as well. These are the best sources I can provide for resolving this issue. The Dealer will most likely want a couple hundred to repair the issue if it isn't under warranty, the Haynes manual will only run about $20 and let you do this repair yourself.
