Usually the sign of a bad roller (glazed) on one side of the paper feeding mechanism & assembly. You can buy roller kits for printers, putting them in requires a bit of know how.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!

✔ Best Answer
Hi Peter, expanding on PC's advise.

If it is a glazed roller (which will be on the side feeding out last) and you can locate it:-

try cleaning with surgical spirit or cd/dvd cleaner (cotton buds/Q tips are invaluable tools), or gently roughen with a emery board for filing fingernails.

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

ALSO look for a torn off piece of a prior jammed paper along one edge of the paper path.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions - we were about to buy a new set of rollers or even a new printer! I roughened the rollers with an emery board and all is now 100%
