Hi

There is an edge guide on the left of your printer where the paper sits which you must adjust so that it fits snugly to the edge of the paper. If you bear with me I am trying to figure a way of showing you a diagram.

Please comment if this makes sense so far.

    Ok. Please bear with me whilst I try to post this up. The Epson model shown is different but the steps are exactly the same and this is the image Epson use to illustrate the loading paper procedure for all 7400 series printers. The most important step to ensure the paper feeds straight will be shown in step 3. May take a few moments for me to complete as I want you to have the images for your reference.



    So here are the steps involved in loading paper properly into your printer to ensure



    1) Open the paper support, then flip the feeder guard forward

    2) Lower the output tray, then slide out the extension.

    3) Pinch and slide the edge guide to the left out of the way.

    4) Fan a stack of paper, then tap it on a flat surface to even the edges



    5) Load the paper with the printable side up against the right side of the sheet feeder, and place it behind the tabs. The printable side is often whiter or brighter than the other side

    6) VERY IMPORTANT. Slide the left edge guide to the left edge of the paper, but not too tightly. Make sure it fits under the arrow inside the left edge guide.

    7) Flip the feeder guard back








    You are now ready to print!



    Step 3 and Step 6 are most important to get right in order to ensure the paper feeds straight in the printing process.

    Always load paper into the sheet feeder short edge first, even when you are printing landscape-oriented pictures.

    Follow these steps and this should resolve your problem.
