Paper will not feed into the printer

Tried both auto feed (which will start to take in the paper then the paper goes crooked and then stops) and the paper tray which gets the cogs turning but nothing feeds and nothing prints!

Hello there
This is worth trying, it may help.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

When trying to print a document, the paper goes in crooked. Then my printer says there's no paper. Of course, there is plenty of paper and it's straight before headed to the printer.


If it goes in crooked, there could be a slight paper jam. Take the top off or open it up anyways and check the feed roller to make sure it is not sticky or jammed.

Paper jam! paper begins to feed then goes crooked


Please do all the things that you can do before you consider buying a new printer. You can take your printer into a service repair center or computer repair center in your place. If there is nothing that they can do then you can take an option of buying a new one.

Paper i feeding wrong, it starts then backs up a


Generally whenever paper goes "crooked" it's because something is partially obstructing the paper path.
It could be a small piece of plastic, or paper from a previous jam that tore off and stuck.
I would suggest looking at the paper path (use a flashlight) to see if there are any obstructions and then carefully remove any found.
I've also seen where the side plastic has become broken, or has a sharp edge sticking out that will cause the paper to misalign.
Hope this helps!

My Dell AIO Photo 926 Printer feeds the paper crooked and jams then says to load paper even though there is paper in it. How do I fix this problem?


Try cleaning the paper feed rollers with a cloth dampened with alcohol. Also check for a piece of paper that may be stuck at the place where the paper goes crooked.

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.

Auto-Feeder Does not feed paper evenly


There must be a small jam in the feeder. You can try sliding a business card or heavier plastic card through the feeder all the way across. Chances are it will push whatever is stuck in there out.

Auto feeds crooked


Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
