I don't have a dell. But I do get that 1-side pulling problem with some of my printers. I solved that problem by positioning the paper with the paper guide (which is movable) to the exact size of the paper so that there is no free play. Usually this solves the problem. The paper guide must be exact, not too tight or too much free play for the paper to move around. Let me know if this helps.

How to load evelopes HL 2140


Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2
When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.


Open the back cover

Open the manual feed slot cover.

Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.

• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
• Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
• Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
• If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.

We spend a large portion of our day desperately trying to load paper and always getting the "paper loaded with too much skew" message. The paper is straight and on the blue line, i'd love to trun...


What type of paper are you using? It's common on cheap canvas or fabrics. Make sure the beginning of the roll about 10 inches must be straight in right side (blue line side). The paper slips upward freely and straight before lowering blue lever. Also this problem appears when your room is dry (low moisture) then PP sticker and some photo paper will curl. This checking feature is very useful for printing on whole roll in a single feed.

Got a Canon i850s used with no instructions. How do I load paper?


You have to open the front cover and move the paper thickness lever at the top of the print head holder to the left position, close the cover. Pull out the paper rest and the output tray and load the paper, aligning it with the right side of the sheet feeder. Press the paper guide and slide it against the left side of the stack of paper and you're done!

How do I fix a paper jam? I've got paper jam around the exit roller and I can't get it out?


There should be a way to unlock one of the sides. Try taking out the toner cartridge and going in that way. If you can see the paper, get a pair of needle nose pliers and SLOWLY see if you can pull the paper out.

Saying paper jam dcp-135c brother printer


 Hello there,If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed: Press the power button to turn the printer off. 
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer. 
Close the front cover. 
Press the power button to turn the printer back on. 
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that: 
The paper is a recommended paper for Laser printers. 
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder. 
The printer is on a flat, level surface. 
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper. 
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper. 
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder. 
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes. 
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver. 
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

Blank lines and doesn't feed properly


Please clean the print nozzles :
  1. Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
  2. Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
  3. Continue doing this until it looks clean.
  4. Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
  5. Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
    1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
    2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.


  1. Paper jam:

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:

Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.

Problem seems to be in the design. The paper loading roller pulls on the corner of the sheet,cocking it to one side. If the paper was pulled in from the center of the sheet,it would be pulled in straight and evenly.
