:mad: this is really getting on my nerves... but i have an old deskjet 812c that i have found to be a great old printer and it has done its job until recently...

i was printing a doc. for school and although every word was on the page and everything was inorder, the print came out crooked.

now i reprinted thinking that maybe the paper was getting caught and then printing, that wasnt the case. then i tried unloading the paper and then reloading new sheets, that didnt work.

finally i unloaded and reloaded the software and got some updates. nothing has worked for this printer to print a full page totally lined up and neat for presentation to my instructors... has anyone had this problem and gotten it fixed? what can i do to get this problem straightened out without going into a repair shop? :confused:

If the printing is crooked on the page (side margins not parallel with the paper edge) then its a mechanical problem and not a software one.

Either the paper is feeding crooked or the printer head transport bar is mis-aligned/broken.
