There are a hundred reasons why this could happen and without the make, model, or even the type of printer listed it is hard to offer advice. But, in most cases printers stop feeding paper when the rollers become worn, dirty, and slick. I would recommend before you do any type of major printer reconstruction that you try getting a $4 bottle of rubber renew and applying it thinly to the rubber rollers using a cotton swab. This will eat away at the surface of the rubber so use it sparingly but in the process will also make the rubber tacky again.

My canon pixma mx320 won't feed paper properly it seems to grab one side of paper and feeds it crooked then stops


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

Paper won't feed properly and jams. the paper starts to feed then twists and jams.


There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.
