Crinkling paper is usually due to either an obstruction in the paper path or a bad fuser, which is the part of the printer that heats the toner so it melts to the page. It is located at the top of this printer. It can be a little challenging to see the fuser on this model, but if you look close you should be able to determine if the fuser is bad. You might also have a bad transfer belt, inspect it closely on the side the has the crinkle.
There mite be something in the path of the paper which the paper hits and so it is slanted have you tried scanning on the big glass instead of thru the document feeder does it happen then? Now the printing is something else are you talking about copying or printing. If print I would check the paper draws ensure the guide are snug up against the paper. Do you internal prints slant such as the meter count print out or the fax info reports. or the demo page? If the problem is coping then place the original on the big glass and see if the slant There are small mylar guides though out the document feeder if some one pulled the original document out in the wrong direction they mite have flipped on of them causing a corner of the paper to hit one slanting the original ALWAYS pull the original out in the same direction as the flow of the document. Try sticking a business card down thru the way the paper flows you mite be able to reset the offending mylar.
You mite have a problem with paper setting or the draw settings. Could be that paper is set for metric size at the copier/printer and United States setting at the printer or vise a versa. Check to make sure that you setting are correct. DO the internal prints such as demo page and Network setting or counter page print OK if you have two draws print from different one or the bypass tray see if it changes?
I have found that with laser printers that have an occasional "crinkle" problem that "fanning" the paper does alleviate the problem ... but it will not if there is an actual feed/hardware problem with the rollers
First thing that comes to mind is that SOMETHING you (or someone) fed in, had a paper clip, staple, crinkle or some other unnatural thickness on one side of the paper - and it's stuck inside the feed mechanism.
I had the same exact thing with the feeder on my shredder. You have to get right inside you printer to find the problem.
Watever it may have been probably got stuck in the paper path so EVERYTHING from that point on gets skewed as it gets sucked into the printer and jams.
