We have an Epson CX4700 printer and the problem is one of the rollers that feed the paper through the printer will not rotate to feed the paper through the printer. This skews the paper to one side and then jams the printer.
Anyone out there that can help?

If you look carefully inside the printer you will see a few short, small diameter, pressure rollers which are springloaded against the main roller. They are all needed for the roller rotation to feed the paper. Sometimes, careless or rough removal of a "jammed" page can pop one of the rollers out of its holder or jam. A missing or stuck feed roller will cause paper skewing and further jams. :mad:

I have managed to pop these feed rollers back in place. It can be a bit fiddly and tricky. ;)
