Basically my printer works fine until it tries to pull the paper through as it is printing. And well I have barely used the printer and don't want to buy another one. I just need to know how to fix it. or if some knows where can take it to get it fixed.

The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.
power the printer down... take the paper tray out.. clean the paper roller.. open and close the printer .. then align the paper tray back.. will work fine.. or else u might need t change the printer.. there's nothing more we can do because inkjet printers are single units no parts are replaceable..
Get a Q-Tip and alcohol. Wet Q-tip with alcohol. Stand in front of the printer and look down where the paper feeds through. On the righthand side you will see a big roller that pulls the paper through and a little one right up under that. Clean both of them with the alcohol and Q-tip. Press the paper feed button and as it trys to act like it is feeding the paper, clean the roller with the Q-tip. Do this until the paper feeds through correctly.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock
(Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button,
applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through
the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear
the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a
try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly
yes i have found a way to get round this paper feed problem, you need a peice of plastic about 3 to 5 mm thick.and about 5cm long a blob of blue tack and stick the plastic strip on the right hand side guide all the way to the bottom. put about 5 sheets of paper in to the guide and adjust the side guide( not to tight). this should help.
This has occured to a 2.hand printer I just bought. First head was clogged very much. I disassembled the head, used a paper towel soaked in luke warm water to clear off the over-gooed printing head surface. It is quite easy to get the head out and back in. Unfortunately my cyan ran out during clean-cycle, so I can't say if it also cured the passing paper problem.
