Many HP users have reported about their printer printing papers crooked instead of printing it straight. The problem, strangely enough, happens to have affected only HP printers of specific series.
My printer is printing a crooked paper for no apparent reason? Fix it by realigning the printer. One of the most common reasons for crooked paper is misconfigured cartridge alignment in the printer. Additionally, you should reinstall printer drivers or check with HP support for further clarification.
Check instructions for these respective steps below.
As discussed already, the issue may occur due to a misconfigured alignment of the printer paper tray. You can easily realign the printer cartridge from the tools menu. However, before that, make sure you that you remove and reinsert the duplexer to make sure no paper jam exists. Here is how to do it.
The printer will show “Aligning cartridges .. please wait. This process will take approximates 7 minutes“.
After the process is complete, the printer will print a page automatically with a message “Alignment successful. Recycle or discard the [age printer. Press OK to Continue“.
Now try to print any document on your printer and check for any improvements.
Another common issue that may cause the printer to behave abnormally is the outdated or buggy printer driver software. Users have reported that uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver has resolved the issue. Here is how to do it.
Make sure you have the latest version of HP Solution Center installed as well. Also, try to uninstall and reinstall the HP Solution Center if uninstalling the drivers did not work.
According to HP support, the printer itself cannot print the paper crooked. It is only possible if the papers are fed crooked. The problem is usually with the paper tray and the alignment. Even if the paper tray is not loose or miss aligned, it is possible that some object ( like a piece of paper) is causing the issue.
Make sure to clean the paper tray and look for any objects and realign the printer to before considering repairing the printer.Still having issues? Fix them with this tool:
