You have to clean the two pickup wheels with some stickey paper. ie the cleaning paper that comes with epson archival matte paper. Out of a lot of them I make my own with two sticky stibes on. Run then several times. Then it work. When you are done. stop using the paper you are using. I stopped using Tetenal because it had some very fine white stuff on that made this problem.

How do I align the HP Laserjet 1020 to print straight? Its printing crooked every time. No two sheets are in the same position


Most likely to be a page feed problem, look online to clean page feeder rubber rollers.
Try here for the pdf manual which covers problem with jams and skewing

HP deskjet 920 c crooked feed


there should be a rear panel to remove and check to see if there is any small peices of paper caught in the rollers or obstructing one side, if not the grip on the the roller is worn or the paper aligning bar is open too wide and allowing the paper to tilt. This is a more common problem with shiny surfaced paper, so try a more matt rougher quality paper.

Paper feeds crooked then jams?Used less paper different paper it just pulls the paper in unevenly the jams. Help


Check feed roller for contamination, fan the paper to seperate sheets and then make sure that you are using paper of the following standard:
Paper Type Thickness Weight Single sheets
(plain paper) 0.003 to 0.004 inch
(0.08 to 0.11 mm) 17 to 24 lb
(64 to 90 g/m²)

Make sure you are using paper supports and feed guides.

Fax double feeds sheets


This may occur if:
-the paper is too thick or too thin
-the roller mechanism is not properly aligned or has worn out
-the sheets of paper stick together

things you can try:
-unload the paper in the main tray and bend the stack of paper to loosen it up. Reload the paper to the main tray

Hope this helps!

Paper feeds crooked


Sounds like a blocked paper path, paperclips , staples , bits of paper etc can drop into the sheet feeder entry and get stuck in the paper rollers.Look and see if you can see anything in there, if not try feeding a piece of thin card back through the printer from the front (ie in reverse of the normal paper travel) be careful and you may be lucky and drive out the obstruction, if not you will need to strip it down to investigate further

Alignment page is printing crooked


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer feeds in 2 or 3 sheets of paper at a time and then jams


Dears eveenz,
It seems that paper feed roller of your printer is broken. This part is integrated in drive assy. You need to replace drive assy of the printer in order to feed the paper properly. I plan to discuss this topic at Inkjet Printer Forum since I cannot post image more than 150 kb here. Explanation with image will make you know more easily. Please send me your mail to ijxpert@gmail.com so I can contact you as soon as I finish my post there.
Please rate me when you find this answer be useful for you

Paper tray won't feed paper & I get a false paper Jam code


This might work for you - it worked for me. HP paper was feeding crooked. Checked the "Paper Type/Quality" in the printing options window - mine was set to Photo Paper. When I changed it to Plain Paper, the paper fed evenly. Hope this works for you.

Make sure the paper aligning slides are tight to the sides of the paper. In the case that they are spring loaded make sure there is not something preventing them from holding the paper properly aligned.
The print head could be 'off-track'...
If the text is properly aligned on the edge of the page, but appears crooked it is related to the print head assembly. If the text is not aligning to the edge of the page then the paper is not feeding straight and the paper aligning slides are at fault.
It is also possible that one of the paper feed rollers are not grasping the paper and it is forcing it to one side as it pulls it in.
