i am having the same problem and after looking it over, something is not feeding it thru the beginning of the paper starting in. if i pust 1 sheet down far enough to grab the paper it will print one page at a time. I have been unable to determine what is not feeding at the beginning yet.

SOURCE: feeds paper crooked
Lexmark printers are hyper sensitive to dust..It might be causing this problem...Take a cotton swab dip it in alcohol and press it against the roller whilw pressing the paper feed button....
If this doesn't work you should try a longer procedure...Remember you have to look real hard..
It's possible that the paper may be running into a foreign object and not feeding in at all. A foreign object could also cause the paper to stall, or even feed-in crooked. Remove all the paper and use a flashlight to look carefully into the paper feed-in area. Look for a pen, pencil, push pin, paper clip, candy, etc. If you can't see anything, then actually pick your printer up and turn it so the paper opening is facing down and shake it a little, side to side. Your trying to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the paper entrance area. If nothing falls out, then turn it back over and use the flashlight to once again look inside that area. Sometimes you'll see an object that may have moved over into view while you were shaking the printer. Any foreign object might block the paper from actually being able to move forward, so then the printer thinks there is no paper installed. You may have to even remove the Top Cover to be able to get a better view of that paper feed area. Unfortunatly, just removing that cover is not always that easy, especially on the newer printers. You may need a Service Manual for reference, disassembly and troubleshooting. I have not checked, but you can normally find Service Manuals for most printers, at www.2manuals.com (most Service Manuals can usually be downloaded for around $10 +/- ). Even if there is not a foreign object stuck in that area, with the top cover off, you might just possibly see what the problem is and even be able to correct it..

SOURCE: paper wont feed propaly
Toss the canon. Mine last two have died like that... one after 1.5 years, this newest 4300Pix after only a few months. Starts to feed the paper crooked, seems like there is a jam, but never one, no paper jammed. Product control is terrible with most printers now.

I once had a similar problem a few months ago and I tried EVERYTHING I could do (Without shaking the printer, I was scared to do that) nothing worked, till I actually got up on a chair and looked into my printer (It is up on a rise above my computer) and there was a push pin sitting in the feeder opening! (Remove pushpin = then it was fine)
Then it started doing it AGAIN yesterday at a time when I really needed my printer, and this time there was no obvious pushpin or any obvious obstruction. I read all the stories here and thought *WOW they had things that far in there?!" So I tried harder and FINALLY after opening the back panel I saw with a flashlight there was a FROOTLOOP (I don't even HAVE any frootloops in my dorm! XD) jammed in the right side inside it! With a chopstick I was able to get it out and now it's fine again. OMG.
But yea, things like to get stuck in printers I guess. XD

Prepare your printer. Make sure the power is on and the drivers are installed correctly on your computer.
Wait for printer to stop. Make sure your printer is idle or ready or waiting for paper to be loaded. Don't load labels when your printer is already printing or running an operation.
Prepare your labels. Make sure they are all facing the same way and are right side up. The label side should be face up. Many labels have an up and a down as well, look for a "this side up" or "load this way" indicator. Or take a look at the print preview before you print and make sure your labels will be fed correctly.
Find the correct paper tray. Some printers have manual feeds and automatic feeds. Refer to your manual to find out which one you should use for labels. If you are going to use the manual feed, follow the manual's instructions. However, most printers will use the automatic feed, so read on.
Align the paper guide. This is a moveable piece on the paper tray. There should be markers for the width of your paper. Standard pages are 8.5 inches. Move the marker so your labels will fit.
Load your labels. Place your labels in the tray so it touches the immoveable side of the paper guide. Slide the paper guide over to touch the other side if it is not already close. Do not bend the labels by pushing in too far.
Find the paper thickness lever. Try looking under the door that lets you change the cartridges. Or search around on the back or side. Check your manual, too.
Set your paper thickness level. Usually you'll use the standard size. However, your printer may need to use a thicker setting. Check your manual.
Change your media type. In your printer settings, find the media type option. You can access settings by clicking properties or settings on the print dialog right before you print. Select "labels."
