Default Canon MX420 Printing Issues

Hello Everyone,

I think I know already that there's no hope so here's a desperate attempt hoping someone has a miracle pill for my printer.

I love this printer, got it for $30, original price is $150 so I would really hate if I have to get a new printer.

So it was working great this week when all of a sudden, when you try printing something, the paper goes in weird, like the right side goes in first so the paper then tilts and then it gets stuck, sometimes it still goes in but then the print is all messed up because it went in sideways.
I think you know what I'm talking about already.
Usually when I see this, i know the printer is doomed, since it's usually a hardware issue.
I tried all the alignment and cleaning options, non of them worked.
Do you guys have any tips? Has anyone succeeded in fixing this issue?
Will I have to pull this thing apart or order a new part of something?

I really hope you guys have amazing news for me

Thanks in advance

Try cleaning the rollers with isopropyl alcohol, and something non-lint.
