    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know what may be my problem.. this printer doesn't print straight. I am printer a spreadsheet and is not even readable. it seems like when the ink cartridges don't remember where the print the last line. so a straight line is not straight at all.
    Does anyone know if this is fixable or the printer is a goner????

    the printer is a HP 1220C running in win XP pro

    thanks

    Hmmm, tricky one...

    It could be something physically wrong with the printer...have you had it a while? - Did you notice this problem getting worse?

    May also be worth trying a different brand of paper?

    Do a cartridge re-alignment, may fix the issue (make sure that they are seated correctly first)

    It could also be a feeding issue with the paper.
