I am running two sided copies. The first side is printed straight, but the other side is printed crooked on the page. I have to turn the original crooked in order for the image to print straight on the 2nd side.

Re: 2nd side crooked
I would have to say that there must be a same piece of paper touching the paper as it is being feed through the duplex ass'y. The best thing to do is to see if the copy gets tilted toward the front or rear of the copy/ copier. You will be able to find where the obstruction is in the dupex path.

Does this happen when you using the document feeder?? Try placing the original document on the big glass see what happens might be you document feeder needs to be adjusted or the original document is hitting a obstruction in the path as it is being scanned. Does it print OK? Vise copy?
that machine does not have an automatic duplexing capability
what you have to do to print both sides of the paper is in the print selection highlight print pages 1,3,5 etc and when finished turn the pages upside down and in backwards , the print pages 2,4,6,8
in the pages selection -print odd pages then when done print even numbers
If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printer cannot print double sided pages automatically. You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time. First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn the page upside down and the print Page 2. Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for the rest of the document. I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up on both sides of the page so it reads correctly.
This could be because of unclean rollers. The scanner picks paper neat, but images is crooked. This is because paper is stuck on one side and the other side is contnuing on the other, giving it the skew. There may be something sticky on the roller, possibily a left over cellophane tape. Remove it and clean with Isoporpyl alcohol. Dont use solvents.

Try this spray on a little WD40 on the GLASS and wipe it off.
Yes, you heard me correctly, make sure you wipe it off leaving no residue, but it's still slippery.
the problem may be coming from the glass being too dry and the paper is getting stuckand shifting.
If the paper itself was going crooked it would get jammed or ripped. There is no room for the paper to go through the path crooked so the only way for it to copy crooked is somewhere in the optics.
try doing 1-2 on the glass itself and see if it copies crooked.
The envelope tray is a By-pass tray and can be used for any size paper.You can switch which tray it copies from on the panel tray button.
one problem with this machine, a small pin comes out on the paper release handle in the back, which lets on side of the paper lift tray to come up higher than the other. might look in that area. good luck
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.
