My DELL A940 printer used to jam every time with the paper pulling to the right. 
Solution - there was a pen jammed in the mechanism ! 
I was about to trash the printer when I looked deep into the workings from above, holding the printer to the window to get bright sunlight into it. I could see a round ballpen laying in the groove at the bottom. 
Hooked the pen out and all is back to normal. 
This may not be your problem, but its worth a look.

My AIO 940 printer does not pull paper properly to print, it does not pull one side of the plain paper and creates a paper jam.


I was having the paper pull to the right. I opened the cover to expose the ink carriages. I found sticky black ink on the platform under the ink. I used a towel and rubbing alcohol to clean off any excess ink. I believe that the sticky ink buildup on the left side did not allow the paper to feed properly. All seems to be well. Hope this helps.

Paper feeding problem


Sounds like the rollers may need to be cleaned, take an older rag and wipe down everything and also check for jammed paper in the printer.

Let me know how this goes and if this doesn't fix it, then we can see what else could be wrong

The papaer is not feeding well on both sides therefore it sticks during printing.The right side of the paper feeds quickly and stiks. I have a dell all in one A940 Thanks Undine Wooding


looking at the pictures i would say the paper feeds in from the top turn the printer upside down and shake it there could be something fallen in there and is cause the paper not to feed on the one side.

My A940 printer is jamming everytime I try to feed


feed roller not working or need to replace roller. how long have u had this printer. Try clean the feed roller with a 50 50 solution of water and alcohol. Rollers might have built some tackiness(glue like formed around rollers) the solution will eliminated this, by doing this problem not solved change feed rollers

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Paper feeds to the right and Jams


Sounds to me like there is something in the paper chanel, a staple, paper clip or something small enough to get in there. Have you tried turning the printer upside down and lightly tapping the side to see if anything falls out?
