This is a known issue, the printer is not designed to do large volume. A thicker paper helps a little, as a rougher paper. If you have to use the old plain glossy white typing paper then using "rubber renew" or some other similar product on the pickup rollers helps in the short term. Just keep in mind that inkjets like this are really designed to print a couple pages or to make hard copies of photographs, not for large jobs.

try feeding the paper through manually if you cant do this then try printing a blank page and see if this still wrecks the paper if it does then it does sound like something is jammed on the roller the best way to clean this is with a blast of air from a compressor this is the only sollution as it will cost more to replace the parts than it would to buy another printer if it is still under warranty they should replace it for you if not you could take it to a computer repair shop where they will strip it down adn rebuild it for you this is a paper feed problem but im sure their must be somethig sticking in the way or maybe the paper feed has come lose at the one end sorry i couldnt help you any more ........................................

The paper may not be feeding straight out of the paper tray due to poor stacking of the paper in the paper cassette. try another paper tray or check the paper in the paper tray for folded over papers usually near the bottom. Also try feeding paper from the hand feed tray on the left side. This uses a different paper path.

1st try the easy stuff is the leaver set as paper feed or tractor feed if that is set correctly then you most likley have a gear problem and they need to be replaced.

open up the printer replace all the gears on the right side and the large gear on the left
they cost about 8 euros each and if it does not park correctly just clean out the bits of paper stuck under the paper load leaver the leaver is small black and bobs up and down if it does not bob up and down it means that there is a bit of paper stopping it. (to do this you have to remove the large black roller that feeds the paper)

I have a Dell 946 printer that is a couple of years old. It has started printing crooked on the pages. I have done the alighnment and that did not fix the problem. Can you help?


probably no much you can do the correct the problem because The problems that users encounter while using a Dell printer
varies with the model. However the common problems all Dell printer models suffer from are their slow speed and faulty paper feed mechanism. Quality of prints varies from one model to another, but most of the models do not produce prints having very fine qualities. A Dell printer is particularly notorious for its poor and faulty feed mechanism. They tend to cripple the papers or take in large number of papers at a time and print parts of documents on each page. They keep on generating messages indicating lack of paper, no matter the paper is being supplied or not. Such a problem makes the printer absolutely useless
