"I have an ancient IBM Laserprinter E P/N 1039229 that has an
aggravating problem: the printer prints fine except that the image
is skewed on the page. There are no problems with the image itself
other than the fact that it is a little crooked. I suspect that the take
up wheel (D-shaped with rubber coating) is the culprit because the
paper does not jam. Anyone have any experience with this? I don't
want to replace the wrong part!"
Bad rubber is a very likely possibility. There are rubber restorer
chemicals - don't know how well they would work. Sanding the top
layer may help. Replacement would be best if you can locate parts.
