Every time I try to print something, the paper doesn't pull from the tray straight. It pulls to the left side and crumples the sheet of paper so that it can't feed through the printer.


You do not state the type of printer so it is difficult to give exact instructions, but I know what your problem is. Something is stuck in the paper path on the right hand side, hence the reason is skews to the left because the left side is able to advance and the right is hitting the obstacle. If your printer has a paper drawer, turn off the power, remove all cords and the cartridge. Pull out the paper drawer and then carefully stand the printer on it's back so that you can see where the paper goes as it comes out of the tray. You will likely find your problem right there. If you can repost with an actual model I can give you a much better idea of how to find a paper jam but these instructions should help you.

Printer pulls paper to the side and jams when


You would need to open the printer and find the stuck paper in there

However other issues may be the problem:

If you got angry one day and ripped the paper from the printer out, you may have also ripped off some roller pins on one side or that the side where the roller pins are has hardeded faster than the other side. You would need to go to fixyourownprinter.com and buy a bottle of rubber rejuvinator so you can loosen those rubber rolling pins.

My Brother HL 5250DN printer has started making a loud clicking sound when it tries to feed paper for printing. It then stops and the paper light starts flashing.


Clear the jammed paper as follows.
Observe Cautions signs in printer.
Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and prevents paper jams.
1. Press the cover release button and then open the front cover.
2. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. The jammed paper will be pulled out with the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
3. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer.
6. Open the front cover again.
7. Open the back cover.
8. Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).
9. Using both hands, gently pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.
10. Close the back cover.
11. Pull the duplex tray completely out of the printer.
12. Pull the the jammed paper out of the printer or the duplex tray. Put the duplex tray back in the printer.
13. Push down the blue lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Clear the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.
14. Put the toner cartridge back into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put the cartridge in properly, the blue lock lever will lift automatically.
15. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer.
16. Put the paper tray firmly back in the printer.
17. Close the front cover.
18. Make sure that the Paper LED is now off and the printer is ready.
After clearing paper jam if noise persist printer may need a Repair Tech and parts replacement for broken or wore parts.

Printer 2480- my printer is pulling paper only on right side


Try this :

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.
