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!

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.

Two separate problems: Paper loads crooked and then jams printer. Unrelated issue is "no paper loaded" error message even when paper is loaded...Help!


You might had a bit of paper stuck in there. Look real close where the rollers are and see if there is maybe a address label or piece of paper in the path of the paper.

When it is time for printing the paper feeds in crooked and gets jammed.


You need to look down inside where the paper is loaded with a flashlight and mirror, That problem is usually caused by strange objects falling in where they should'nt be, stopping the paper. I've found jewelry, pens, screws, candy, wrappers, and lots of stuff. way down inside.

Crooked Cpoies


Pull all of the paper out of paper tray and reload. More than likely you will find some sheets on the bottom that are folded at the corners. This will cause crooked copies and also jams.

Paper Jam


there maybe some obstruction on the paper path, inspect visually any sign of abnormality in this area, replacing the ink would not cause this.

it is touching something thats why t is crooked, either small piece of paper, dirt, caked ink, or hardened ink on the roller, feeding unit may have some plate mis adjusted, misaligned feeeding tray as well. try this


cheers
