    I have the exact same problem. My printer is also about a year old

    Also had my mp460 just over one year. Paper feeds crooked; one side grabbed before the other, big ink mess.

    Same thing, paper misfeed. Just over a year old pulls paper at one side and jams.

My solution may not address the problem for others, but in looking for what was wrong, I began to turn the printer over for a better view and a pencil fell out! After that, no problem.

I took it in for repair. I was told that the roller that takes up the paper was bad, The cost to repair it would cost just as much a new printer.

Paper feeder stuck

If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time

    Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.
    “Paper jams” on page 68
    “Paper or specialty media misfeeds” on page 68
    “Printer does not feed paper, envelopes, or specialty media” on page 69
    “Banner paper jams” on page 69
    Paper jams
    Is the jam in the paper
    1 Press to turn off the printer.
    2 Firmly grasp the paper, and gently pull it out.
    3 Press to turn the printer back on.
    Is the jam in the printer? To automatically eject the paper:
    1 Press to turn off the printer.
    2 Press again to turn the printer back on.
    The paper automatically ejects from the printer.
    To manually remove the paper:
    1 Press to turn off the printer.
    2 Firmly grasp the paper, and gently pull it out.
    3 Press to turn the printer back on.
    Paper or specialty media misfeeds
    If paper or specialty media misfeeds or skews, or if multiple sheets feed or stick together, try the following solutions.
    Check paper
    Use only new, unwrinkled paper.
    Check paper loading Load a smaller amount of paper into the printer.
    Load paper with the print side facing you. (If you are not sure which side is the printable
    side, see the instructions that came with the paper.)
    See “Loading various paper types” on page 21 for information about:
    Maximum loading amounts per paper type
    Specific loading instructions for supported paper and specialty media
    Remove each page as
    it is printed
    Remove each page as it exits, and let it dry completely before stacking.
    Adjust the paper
    Adjust the paper guides:
    When using media less than 8.5 inches wide
    To rest against the edges of the paper or media, making sure it does not buckle

    While printing with OKI C5600 very often error message pops up about jammed paper though no REAL jam happened. To solve I just open and close paper tray and front door. JAM PAPER error is real pain if...

    Have you tried cleaning the paper feed roller(s)? Either soap & water OR isopropyl alchohol with a cotton ball will do, just make sure the rollers are dry before trying to print again, otherwise damage to imaging unit (drum/toner unit) could occurr. If the printer doesn't feed in the first place, the printer thinks it has a jammed paper, thus opening paper tray and front cover resets misfeed/ jam condition. Let me know your progress....Tim

    My laserjet 1020 develops a paper jam after printing the first page of a multipage print instruction .I have deleted the printer and re-installed it including all drivers but problem still...

    Reinstalling the printer is related the Software.
    If the paper gets physically jammed than its the driver setting issue or hardware issue.
    Check if two sheets get jammed or only one sheet.
    If it is two sheets than printer is picking up multiple sheets and paper gets jammed.
    If the printer is jamming a single sheet than remove the Tray and look there is rubber roller inside if there are marks or lines on that rubber roller or if the roller roller is worn out than that rubber roller called as paper pickup roller need to be replaced.
    If that looks fine than try to priny using manual feed and if the problem persists from manual feed too than try another toner cartridge
    If the problem is not from Manual feed Tray that Replace the main Tray with known good Tray and check if the issue resolved.

    HP paper jam

    That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

    Paper Misfeed Problem

    When you close the doors does the message disappear? If so then the paper pickup roller is worn. Open the cassette remove all paper apart from one sheet. Spray a alcohol based cleaned on the leading edge of the paper. Try and do a copy this will issue a jam and also clean the pickup roller. repeat a few times then clean out the cassette and dry off place new paper in the cassette and try. Also there maybe a piece of paper behind the cassette. Remove cassette and reach in and remove paper lodged at back.

    Thanks Jason

    Automatic Paper feed

    Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.
