Please try this step if it still fails then its the problem with hardware of printer,

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

I am having problems with printer paper not loading correctly and its causing a paper jam when i attempt to print

Try wiping the rollers with alcohol. I find if they are too dirty, they make the printer return a paper jam error.

Paper keeps jamming. seems tp be pulling to one side slightly.

Usually that is a sign of an object in between the rollers.
Check for paper or other foreign body. It will be located on the side that dragged.

Good Luck!

My printer will not completely roll paper through the printer

Maybe the cartridges are in slightly crooked. Take them out and put them back in. Make sure there is no paper or any other obstruction around there and try again. :)
