Re: red strip down right side of paper
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

The transparency should have a white peel off strip! Without that the machine doesn't know it feed paper. Some transparency paper will have a backing sheet you peel off after printing. Check Staples for correct type.
This should be the edge that feeds first and should be on the on the non print side. if your not sure which side is printed on (face up / face down) open tray and draw an X on the top sheet.
then print anything and see if it prints over the X. If not then put peel off strip on the side (face up / face down) not printed on .
Nothing wrong with your printer! Most printers detect paper presence with a LED. Problem is acetate being clear the printer thinks the source tray is empty. :)
* Go down to an office supply store and buy acetate that has a 1/4" strip of opaque material on the short edge. * DIY. Take some permanent marker and with a ruler put a black stripe on the short edge. Let it dry. That should let the printer sense that acetate is there.
You say the paper is scewed to the right which means absolutely nothing if you think about it, isn't the left hand side also scewed? Usually one side of the paper is pulled down leaving the other side up thus scewing it. Firstly make sure nothing has fallen down the paper slot, secondly make sure the sliding paper adjuster to the left of the paper is up tight against the paper, even a 1 millimetre gap can cause this problem, thirdly look down the paper slot with the paper in and make sure there is no gap between the bottom edge of paper and plastic shute or case, you really shouldn't be able to see much of the two pieces of white plastic, now press the green start button.
Run the 1/2 print test. Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print a few pages of anything. As the paper gets about 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the cartridge door. Pull out the cartridge and look down at the paper. If it has the black stripe on the left side, replace the toner. In fact at this point, pick up the toner cartridge and gently swing the shutter open and look at the drum. You should be able to see a black stripe on it.
By the way, the toner hasn't been fused to the paper at this point. It will rub off on hands and clothes. If the 1/2 test shows no stripe on the paper...replace the fuser.
Either your magenta cartridge is leaking out of the right corner or you have a defective magenta drum.
(maybe it got scratched when changing the cartridge?) If it's the magenta drum, you have to replace all the drums since they come in one unit. OEM part only.
Ramana is the black stripe just showing up on copies or faxes or does the stripe occur when you are printing from your computer. If the stripe only occurs when copying or faxing then more than likely the scanner glass is dirty. White out liquid on the scanner glass is a common.If it happens when printing fromyour pc, the problem will be in the toner cartridge or the fusing assembly.
Change the cartridge first to see if it goes away. Check the scanner glass, especially the small glass strip on the left side of the scanner or the right side where you place the original paper. These areas should be completely clear and clean of any scratches or smudges.
Last is the fusing assembly. If you tried everything else and theline continues to bother you, the fusing assembly sleve is probably torn. This would have to be replaced. The part number is RM1-0865-040CN.
There is a small strip of glass on the left side directly under the edge of the scanner, About a half an inch wide. It has something on it.
May be very hard to see, use a strong glass cleaner or some alcohol and a regular piece of paper to clean it with.
