trabado asimétrico (u oblícuo)
Explanation:
Hola, no sé si será "atascamiento", "atasco" o "trabado", pero "skew jam" es cuando la hoja que estás imprimiendo se atasca de un solo lado y del otro sigue corriendo, de modo que la impresión sale distorsionada, con una leve rotación angular.

Referencias:
1) Effects of Document Skew
The skew, or small angular rotation, of a piece of paper as it passes beneath an image camera can have a variety of effects.

2) Diccionario Batterbly:

VERB: Inflected forms: skewed, skew·ing, skews

INTRANSITIVE VERB: 1. To take an oblique course or direction. 2. To look obliquely or sideways.
TRANSITIVE VERB: 1. To turn or place at an angle. 2. To give a bias to; distort.
ADJECTIVE: 1. Placed or turned to one side; asymmetrical. 2. Distorted or biased in meaning or effect. 3. Having a part that diverges, as in gearing. 4a. Mathematics Neither parallel nor intersecting. Used of straight lines in space. b. Statistics Not symmetrical about the mean. Used of distributions.
NOUN: An oblique or slanting movement, position, or direction.

atasco transversal o trasversal


Explanation:
se dice de lo que cruza la cosa de que se trata e dirección perpendicular (V. atravesado, cruzado) Maria Moliner

también pondría atasco lateral pues se entiende que se atascaría de uno de los lados (el ancho del papel) Si fuera de los dos lados, sería colateral
