Hi, I have an X75 and had the same problem which is caused by the paper feed roller only being at the right hand side of the paper so that the left hand guide can slide across to accommodate narrower paper and envelopes.
I solved my problem by using an old credit card clipped to the rear paper support by a bull dog grip just above the bit that sticks out.
This then holds the paper down flat behind the right hand guide and so stops it shooting over to the right and jamming.
I know that this shouldn't be necessary with a decent printer but at least I don't have any problems now, thank goodness.

By any cnance could there be someting that has droped down into the roller area. The only time I had trouble with paper jamming, it turned out to be a pencil that had dropped into the printer!

turned it upside down and looked with a torch...nothing there!

As a LAST resort try feeding a sheet of very fine wet and dry emery paper thro. the machine, (ABRASIVE SIDE DOWN ). This should remove any glaze on the rollers.
