Epson Epson Stylus Color 740

Epson 740C Paper Alignment

My Epson 740 seems to grab the paper imporperly and it feeds at an angle. This causes the printed page to get caught/folded/cut along one edge and the page only prints down to about 2/3's of the page. Any help/suggestions would be very helpful.
Arshad...THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF PAPER FEEDING IN CROOKED: It's possible that the paper may be running into a foreign object and stalling or feeding crooked. Remove all the paper and use a flashlight to look carefully into the paper feed-in area. Look for a pen, pencil, push pin, paper clip, candy, etc. If you can't see anything, then actually pick your printer up and turn it so the paper opening is facing down and shake it a little, side to side. Your trying to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the paper entrance area. If nothing falls out, then turn it back over and use the flashlight to once again look inside that area. Sometimes you'll see an object that may have moved over into view while you were shaking the printer. Any foreign object might block the paper from actually being able to move forward, so then the printer thinks there is no paper installed. You may have to even remove the Top Cover to be able to get a better view of that paper feed area. Even if there is not a foreign object stuck in that area, with the top cover off, you might just possibly see what the problem is and even be able to correct it...Good Luck! Denny Conway
