Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
This is a very general question, for which I will give very general responses.
There are two (again general) reasons why these problems come up. The most common is that the feed rollers have become worn and/or impacted with paper dust, and will not pick up the paper correctly. If your printer has a "clean feed rollers" utility (some do) then use it. If not, and if you can reach the rollers, you can try using a slightly moistened piece of t-shirt material (DO NOT USE PAPER TOWEL or anything else that can leave lint) to lightly swab the rollers to remove the paper dust, etc. Be very careful. It's easy to break plastic parts.
Another reason may be the paper itself. If you live in a humid climate (I live in the tropics...this is an issue here) then the paper can absorb moisture as it sits, which will cause it to stick together in the feed tray. If this is an issue, keep your paper in plastic bags to keep the moisture out until you're actually ready to print, and don't leave paper in the feed tray for extended periods.
Another reason can be static cling. Always flex and fan the paper stack, then re-square it, as you place it into the tray. This separates the sheets and causes the "cut edges" (which can stick together from the packaging process) to let go of each other.
Hope that's helpful.
