Re: Paper is coming out crooked when it prints

I'm assuming that the print is straight on the paper. Look to see if the transport belts are all turning when you rotate the green fuser drive knob. I've had to lubricate the metal rollers that allow the belts to rotate. If the two bigger belts are rotating unevenly then the paper will skew before the fuser. Good luck.

My paper feeding is crooked

check the paper tray, make sure the paper guides are snug up to the edges of the paper. Even a small gap will cause miss alignment of the printing.

My printer in printing crooked when i print a lot of papers how do i fix that. It works just fine when i print 2 or 3

first determine if its the paper feed by printing several copies off the glass not using the document feeder. If they are crooked coming from there check the paper cassette and make sure the side quides are snug against the stack. That is the usual problem.

Every time I try to print, the printer grabs the paper crooked.

There's a leaver where the paper comes out, make certain it's to the left when printing with paper and to the right for envelopes.

Printing crooked from one drawer, and no option to print from another drawer

Try this spray on a little WD40 on the GLASS and wipe it off.
Yes, you heard me correctly, make sure you wipe it off leaving no residue, but it's still slippery.
the problem may be coming from the glass being too dry and the paper is getting stuckand shifting.
If the paper itself was going crooked it would get jammed or ripped. There is no room for the paper to go through the path crooked so the only way for it to copy crooked is somewhere in the optics.
try doing 1-2 on the glass itself and see if it copies crooked.
The envelope tray is a By-pass tray and can be used for any size paper.You can switch which tray it copies from on the panel tray button.

Printer will not allow paper to flow freely; it jams on the left side and prints crooked.

first cancel all the prints going on and switch off and on the printer and keep the paper slowly

kindly ensure that the paper guide is set correctly according to your paper size, like 81/2 x 11 or letter will find this when you first place your paper it is like a guide on either left or right side

E3 paper jam

if the paper is crooked it will come out wrinkled. If not the print is crooked indicating a different problem.
You wil have to look at the paper as it is printing, to see where it is catching, paper ramp maybe ( before the fuser entrance), exit rollers? ( only place I know there are bristles)

E3 is : paper jam in fuser

also check fingers or claws on fuser they catch the paper if worn.

Misaligned Printing

if you do an internal test page ( there should be a button on the machine you push for this function, I'll give you the link for the manual in case you don't have it) does it come out crooked?

the alignment of cartridge is to make sure the colors are o.k. not for paper alignment.
if the internal test comes out ok then the problem is with the paper path, are the guides snug against the paper ?
if the internal test comes out crooked then the problem is with the scanner or board.
