    Hi guys,

    Using an HP Photosmart 7200 and XP SP2, I have been having problems for a long while now where my printer is printing misaligned. Everything comes out truncated to the left slightly and it's hugely annoying.

    I have dne countless print test pages (print callibrations) and messed around with my Word settings but to no avail.

    Just wondering if through experience or any past cases, someone may have the solution to this?

    Appreciate any and all help, as always.

    "truncated" ? What do you mean? Do you mean the left is being cut off?

    When is this happening? You mentioned Word, does it only happen in Word? or does it happen in other applications as well?

    Are you using an original HP printer cartridge? Is the cart, new? Can you print text in notepad correctly?
    there is a setting in Word that will allow you to print past the printer margins. You don't want to do this. It will not print the first few characters.it's under file-->page setup
