    Paper is straight in the tray, but when feeding to be copied it slants to the left, thus crinkling the paper and producing crooked text.

You need to change the pick up rollers for your printer if it pulling the paper unevenly... but first check to see that the paper size adjuster on the tray i self is set to your paper likeness.....adjust to the correct paper size if not...

SOURCE: Canon MP460 feeds the paper into the printer

I just got mine sorted out. It took two things:
a. luck
b. a lot of googling

Now,

The problem was 15 cents of the Euro in the following configuration: 1x10cent coin and 1x 5 cent coin...

The first thing I did was try to clean the bottom plate and the roller. I read somewhere that using some thick paper does the trick. I destroyed an office paper file (not very thick, but definately thicker than normal papers) - about 5 - 6 tries on the bottom plate clean and the roller clean, and a 5 cent coin appeared out of nowhere :)

I though that was it but I was very very wrong. At about the same time, I got the mother of all annoying canon error 5100. Although the heads moved at starting of the printer, when it came to print it had the error. I looked as much as I could and I was convinced (several times) that there was nothing in the printer. The heads moved fine, but the error was there. Rebooted the printer about 50 times, took power off etc, but nothing.

After a good 5' search with the flashlight (mobile phone) I spotted a small shine right where the little spongy thing is under where the heads rest far right when you look inside from the front of the printer. And voila, a 10 cent coin standing glorious in there and causing me all this trouble. I couldnt access it at all, but I was able to use the force of gravity (by inverting and giving a little jiggle to the printer) to get it to drop and finally got it out.

The printer works fine now, paper loads like a charm and even colour photo printing is fine.

Now I need to find a way to put back that little plate I took out (totally unecessary in the end...) and I have to sort out the removal of tons of ink from my hands.

To sum up:

It can be fixed. It's a pain in the ****. You might get richer (15cents for me!!!). You will have a full functioning MP460 printer again.

I hope this helps someone else as well :)

SOURCE: paper jam! paper begins to feed then goes crooked

Please do all the things that you can do before you consider buying a new printer. You can take your printer into a service repair center or computer repair center in your place. If there is nothing that they can do then you can take an option of buying a new one.

SOURCE: Epson R340 does not feed paper or feeds it crooked

two things I would do, first carefully flip the printer upside down, (anything that looks like it can flap open, tape it well), and jiggle it slightly and see if anything falls out.

second, i would clean the pickup roller with an alcoholic pad or swab, if its not easily accessible, you will probably need to take the upper an middle casing off, which I dont recommend.

thanks adi

My paper feeding is crooked


check the paper tray, make sure the paper guides are snug up to the edges of the paper. Even a small gap will cause miss alignment of the printing.

Paper is pulled through crooked printing is not straight. how doyou clean the rollers?


This can be caused by several factors. It could be that there's something(like small foreign objects in the paper feed area) causing the paper to get crooked. It can also be caused by improperly adjusted paper guide or the paper is not in good condition.

Paper feeds crooked and results in a paper jam.


Assume every time this happens something microscopic fell into that tiny pinch of an area. I have found everything from a Tostito crumb to a chip of drywall blocking my paper feed. Flip your machine over and shake it around til the little bugger falls out.

My Dell AIO Photo 926 Printer feeds the paper crooked and jams then says to load paper even though there is paper in it. How do I fix this problem?


Try cleaning the paper feed rollers with a cloth dampened with alcohol. Also check for a piece of paper that may be stuck at the place where the paper goes crooked.

Paper feeder is not straight


Push the copy button with the cover up and no paper on the glass. Is the light bar straight up and down, or is it crooked? I can't imagine how paper could go thru the machine crooked, but check it out if you can. If the paper is too thin, it may not be getting grabbed by the rollers right.

Paper feeds through straight at first then scans crooked at the end


This could be because of unclean rollers. The scanner picks paper neat, but images is crooked. This is because paper is stuck on one side and the other side is contnuing on the other, giving it the skew. There may be something sticky on the roller, possibily a left over cellophane tape. Remove it and clean with Isoporpyl alcohol. Dont use solvents.

Auto feeds crooked


Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
