I believe my printer is already broken and I'm still on the starter cartridges.

I tried loading some Exhibition Fiber paper 8.5x11 and it would not pick it up from the front feeder and made horrible cracking / creaking sounds and it only pulls in the paper at an angle, crinkles and destroys the sheet. It seems to be pulling from only one side. When I load the paper in the front slot you can feel that there is no stop / roller on the right side.

Any thoughts on this? I am debating on whether to contact Epson or return the printer for a replacement.

Thanks

Update:  I can see the problem.  When I load the sheet in the front feeder the silver colored metal that touches to top of the paper only touches it on the left side.  The right side there is a visible gap.  The feeder must be broken / bent / or not reset.
