Epson R220 Paper Feed Pulling to one side

Epson R220 Paper Feed Pulling to one side by bootlegbob (edited 10/8/10 1:56 PM) reply + / -
My Epson R220 has started to pull the paper to one side as it pulls it in to print causing a paper jam.
I have taken the two ends off but befor I adjust the roller(I am assuming it is the roller)has anyone succesfully solved this problem before?
The service manual says I need a PG Adjustment cartridge.
Does anyone know where I can get one from?
Or better still does anyone know a way to fix without one.?

Any help would be appreciated.
Steve

Rollers never ever pull the paper in crooked. The reason it pulls crooked is because there is something lodged in the paper path that is stopping the paper on the one side. There is one thread of about 600 posts on the things that people have found in the paper path. Cat's claw, push pin, jewely, etc. I found a metal shelf support peg in the last Epson I worked on. Still trying to comprehend how it got wedged in there like it did.
