Leading cause of paper jams or misfeed is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

SOURCE: Canon Printer Problem : paper twists to right when loading

I find that having too much paper in the carrier can cause this problem.

Another tip I use is to fan the paper before putting it into the carrier and make sure the guides are guiding and not holding the paper, i.e. don't get them too wide or too narrow.

SOURCE: Paper twisted while entering printer rollers and

Try to turn off the printer, open the compartment and check the roller. try to pull the paper and at the same time flip the roller in such a way that the paper will move out. If it is jammed and crumpled like what I exactly experienced earlier, remove the paper as fast as you can.

Turn on the printer, wait for the inkjet devices in a neutral position. Then insert the paper and start printing again. If it didn't work, try to hold the tip of the paper in horizontal manner while printing and make sure you remove the entire paper before the next page prints itself...

I have a paper jam in the printer lexmark x4550 and don't know how to get to it


If you're having trouble getting the paper jam from the feeder, you can open the cartridge area. You should be able to get a better hold of jammed paper out from there.

Paper does not feed into printer


Printer Lexmark X4550 not taking paper, (Quick Fix)
Hi, yes my printer had the same problem with the pick up rollers not taking paper,
and thought it would be a simple job to adjust the springs inside the printer? But no, I could not find to open the printer. So I devised a simple modification using a
thin flat spring I had taken from an old windscreen wiper blade. see instructions

My Lexmark did the same thing-if you can get in at the rollers to clean them that might help.

Paper jam in the lexmark x4550


If you know someone who is handy with this kind of stuff, you should get them to open the printer up and remove the paper. You could also try to just send sheets of paper through to see if they can dislodge it (but that may cause paper jams as well).
