    I'm having the same problem.

    The paper skews to the right almost immediately no matter what the paper size (letter or legal).The rollers often make a really awful cracking noise.

    Leading up to this problem, I had been experiencing more and more persistent "phantom" paper jams.Also I have run the print utility on at least 3 separate occasions, and that has bought me a short time without the feed problem.

Paper is constantly jamming on right hand side-as you face printer-it feeds in unevenly as soon as I start to print.


Remove all print paper from the paper tray. check if there are any dust particles or any other substances that might be jamming the paper. That is the only fix.

How to set half half size paper


Look for a latch on the right side tractor drive. This will unlock it so you can slide it sideways on its rail. Set it approximately where it should be, load the paper, then adjust it so you have a slight amount of tension across the paper. I think the rest is software.

Paper getting stuck


the reason the paper is going in sideways is because one feed roller has more pressure than the other

try cleaning the rollers with alcohol and cotton cloth

If that does not work remove the paper tray t

take your fingers and see if the feed rollers turn freely or turn in only one direction( some rollers are half moon and only turn a half turn)

Just try to make sure that the roller that is not working is in the same position and turns the same as the one that does feed properly

TROUBLE PRINTING



These are following cases for this symptom.

If the access indicator flashes in green:

The data size of the image is large and it takes longer to process it for printing. Printing will start as soon as the data processing finishes.

If the paper error indicator flashes on the LCD:

The paper is jammed. Turn off the printer and turn it on again, take out the paper tray, and then remove the jammed paper from the paper outlet. If you cannot remove the jammed paper, consult with your Sony dealer or service facility.

If no indicator is lit or flashing:

The thermal head may be overheated. Leave the printer until the head cools down and the printer resumes printing.

**HW support: 877-459-7298 and you must have the Express Service Code of your printer or any Dell product you're calling in so that they can route you to the right department.** Usually, if you're having paper jams, it could be a mechanical problem with the printer. Try these: - turn off the printer. unplug the power adapter for 1-2 minutes - lift the printer upside down and shake it sideways (strange huh?... usually, this helps because it can re-align those things that may not be aligned right inside the printer) - then, adjust the paper guides and use about 10-15 pieces of paper. try using the printer. if it's still the same... it really is the printer. - if it's still under warranty, Dell can replace it. This information is from Dell, try it it can't hurt.

Paper jam


Look where you put the paper in. See if you can see inside there and see the roller that turns and picks up the paper. If you can, make a mixture of alcohol and a little dish soap. Damp a rag with it, and reach in there to clean the rollers.  See if the rollers will turn manually, but be careful not to force anything.  Another way to get to the whole roller, would be to start making a print, while watching the rollers.  As soon as the rollers have turned half way, unplug the printer.  Now you can reach the other side and clean that.

There is another way to clean the rollers.  Using the alcohol mix, take a single sheet of paper, and damp one half of it with the solution.  Stick the single sheet in the paper tray, and make a print, but hold on to the paper so that it doesn't feed through the machine.  Do this several times, and the rollers turning against the wet paper should clean them.

Try to print again. It might take a few tries. The rollers have to turn against the paper and dry themselves off again.
If this works, then you need new rollers (cleaning them will only make them work temporarily and the problem will come more frequently until you change them).

Thankyou,
