  • Step 1 Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
  • Step 2 Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible."
  • Step 3 If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer.
  • Step 4 Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper.
  • Step 5 If you have a laser printer, inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper jams and should be replaced by a technician.
  • Step 6 If you have a laser printer, try cleaning the printer's paper rollers with a lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (available at electronics shops or drugstores).
  • Step 7 Try changing the toner or ink cartridge.
  • Step 8 If you hear a clinking sound during printing, your printer probably has a broken gear and needs to be serviced by a technician.

Prints crooked


The paper is not being pulled into the printer straight.

There are small sliders that rest next to the paper in the loading tray, you are required to push these so that they slide over and rest directly next to the stack of paper. This will guide the paper into the printer straight so that the paper does not get pulled in crooked.

The paper is being pulled in crooked every time


You might want to try using rubbing alcohol with a soft pad on the rollers near the ink cartridges...I've found that the ink can make the rollers 'sticky' and cause the paper to be pulled to one side. Hope this works for you!

Copies crooked


make sure back stop and side guides are against all edges of the paper in the drawers, ADF edge guides..same thing. does this happen out of all drawers? if so there is a registration roller (long and usually hard rubber) that has to be pressed evenly across to pull paper straight, usually has springs bent around both ends. If it is not drawers or ADF has to be in the path from drawer but before Fuser (hot area) best bet is reg roller.

Paper feeder is not straight


Push the copy button with the cover up and no paper on the glass. Is the light bar straight up and down, or is it crooked? I can't imagine how paper could go thru the machine crooked, but check it out if you can. If the paper is too thin, it may not be getting grabbed by the rollers right.

Every time I go to make a copy the printer pulls the paper in crooked and it jams


One of the biggest reasons for the paper feeding in crooked is that the platen (what the actual paper feeds across to be typed on) gets really slick. All in all that platen and anything that handles the paper needs to be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol. It will restore the texture to all the parts that actually handle the paper going through. That is all there is to that problem. God bless.

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
