The most likely cause of the problem is an obstruction on the left side of the paper path - most likely a shred of paper from a previous jam. You can estimate where to look by how far the paper goes in before it starts to twist to the side. Sometimes I've had to use a dental pick to snag a shred buried deep inside as an alternative to dismantling the printer. You may find it helpful to use a small mirror to look underneath or behind rollers while you search for the culprit.
Another possibility is one side of a dual pickup roller (two rollers on a single shaft) is worn out. That is unlikely; except for large format units most printers use a single pickup roller.
It can be that the paper drawing mechanism of the roller and the geared drive has an issue, possible that the motor has a play with the roller out of alignment , producing a difference of gap in the roller settings. If so the paper will be drawn into in different lengths so as to jam with the uneven pulling.
First of all check the quality of the paper used, is it of low thickness. if so change with a different type.
If the printing paper is good then the rollers can be moving over with different pressure on the paper making it touch unevenly and so pulling the paper differently.adjust the rollers and if possible tighten so that it touches evenly.
The roller will now move the paper without any side pulling and jamming.
power the printer down... take the paper tray out.. clean the paper roller.. open and close the printer .. then align the paper tray back.. will work fine.. or else u might need t change the printer.. there's nothing more we can do because inkjet printers are single units no parts are replaceable..
If you have some small twiser like you use to pull those nasty nose hairs, and pull the paper out with that. If that doesn't take a air compressor and gently blow it. A compress air will have some moisture in it and you don't want that to get on to the rollers.
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. (On the X83, press the Select 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.
The problem could be as simple as your paper not going through the tray straight, or just aligning the print cartridges. Make sure when your paper is pulled through the printer that it isn't getting pulled more quickly on one side than the other. Also, go into your printer control panel to find the 'alignment option' and follow the steps to complete a proper alignment. If that doesn't work, get back to me with more details about the problem. (is it on a slant, are half the sentences printing on a different angle etc.)
