    :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:

    Check to make sure the paper guides are tight on the sides of the paper first.

    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.
