Hi,
First thing I would try and do is cleaning the pick up rollers with some alcohol and lint free cloth or q-tips. See if this helps at all. Also if the paper being used isn't new or has been subjected to too much humidity that could cause a problem as well.
Thank you,
Lee

Paper jamming and pulling to one side when feeding through the document feeder


Clean the rollers. Your drivers may have an option to do a rudementary cleaning.

Or it's time to tear into it with some coton swabs and 90% rubbing alchohal.

Also look for debris in the path of the paper.

Workforce 630 paper jam


Epson Workforce 630 has two paper loading areas. One at the bottom and one at the top, back of printer. Make sure you set the printer to correct paper source, or just make sure paper is loaded in both trays to see if it starts taking paper in either one.

Torn paper- how can I disassemble epson workforce 610?


Before you do a complete teardown, use a flashlight to examine every possible point in the paper feed path where the paper is jammed. There may be an easier way to clear it. In some cases I have had to clear a paper jam bit by bit using tweezers.

Paper won't feed properly and jams. the paper starts to feed then twists and jams.


There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.

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.

Epson jammed paper


Check for the compatibility of the paper you're using by visiting www.epson.com and selecting your region. Also, I might add that make sure paper is properly loaded.

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
