1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

It sounds like the pickup rollers are worn or damaged and would need to be replaced

SOURCE: Canon MP460 feeds the paper into the printer

I just got mine sorted out. It took two things:
a. luck
b. a lot of googling

Now,

The problem was 15 cents of the Euro in the following configuration: 1x10cent coin and 1x 5 cent coin...

The first thing I did was try to clean the bottom plate and the roller. I read somewhere that using some thick paper does the trick. I destroyed an office paper file (not very thick, but definately thicker than normal papers) - about 5 - 6 tries on the bottom plate clean and the roller clean, and a 5 cent coin appeared out of nowhere :)

I though that was it but I was very very wrong. At about the same time, I got the mother of all annoying canon error 5100. Although the heads moved at starting of the printer, when it came to print it had the error. I looked as much as I could and I was convinced (several times) that there was nothing in the printer. The heads moved fine, but the error was there. Rebooted the printer about 50 times, took power off etc, but nothing.

After a good 5' search with the flashlight (mobile phone) I spotted a small shine right where the little spongy thing is under where the heads rest far right when you look inside from the front of the printer. And voila, a 10 cent coin standing glorious in there and causing me all this trouble. I couldnt access it at all, but I was able to use the force of gravity (by inverting and giving a little jiggle to the printer) to get it to drop and finally got it out.

The printer works fine now, paper loads like a charm and even colour photo printing is fine.

Now I need to find a way to put back that little plate I took out (totally unecessary in the end...) and I have to sort out the removal of tons of ink from my hands.

To sum up:

It can be fixed. It's a pain in the ****. You might get richer (15cents for me!!!). You will have a full functioning MP460 printer again.

I hope this helps someone else as well :)

SOURCE: Epson R340 does not feed paper or feeds it crooked

two things I would do, first carefully flip the printer upside down, (anything that looks like it can flap open, tape it well), and jiggle it slightly and see if anything falls out.

second, i would clean the pickup roller with an alcoholic pad or swab, if its not easily accessible, you will probably need to take the upper an middle casing off, which I dont recommend.

thanks adi

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.

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.

My HP Officejet Pro K8600 prints crooked, how do I fix that?


is the paper going thrugh crooked?
make sure the paper is in the tray and the guides are night and straight.
if that is ok, look for something that makes the paper turn crooked by hitting it, such as a lost scrap of paper or a paperclip where it does not belong.

Paper is loading crooked and causing a jam


Sounds like there is something that has fallen into the paper feed path. Shutdown printer, unplug power from back of printer, and remove paper. With a flashlight, inspect the area around the paper feed roller for any debris (one time I found a penny lodged on the left side of the roller) that might have fell inside path and for damage to rubber wheels. Ink can build up on rubber wheels causing the paper to misalign. This can be cleaned off with q-tips and 91% Isopropal Alcohol or Dilute. If debris is found and cleaned then reload paper into feed path, make sure paper guide tab is in position against paper source. Plug printer power back in, turn on printer and push the paper feed button. If that doesn't fix problem the only other solution is the replace the paper feed roller or buy another printer. Let me know if this fixes the problem or if you find another issue. Have a Nice Day!

It appears that the paper is not feeding on one side. The paper will begin to feed and then turn crooked.


First make sure that the left hand paper guide is up tight against the stack of paper in the feed tray.
If it is and the paper is still skewing then something is obstructing the path. This could be an internal part that has come loose, a piece of torn paper or a foreign object like a paperclip or wasp. Use a torch and peer down the feed chute and then look inside , examine the paper path carefully.
For info, the paper only feeds from the right side (as you look at the front of the printer)

I can't print anything as the paper feeds in crooked and jams


Perhaps there is still a bit of paper stuck in the machine from a previos jam? Follow the manual to clear a paper jam. Then "fan" your paper like a deck of cards before placing it in the feeder. Make sure the paper guide is not set too tightly causing the paper to not lay flat as it enters the printer.

Everything prints crooked on HP Officejet Pro 8000


This can probably be resolved simply by adjusting the paper feed guide. Make sure that the movable guide (probably at the left side of the paper tray) is just touching the paper stack, with no gap.

Paper feeds in crooked. Pulling from one side.


Mine does this same thing but it prints straight. I put the guide slider tight as I can to the paper. .
