Printer Trouble - may be OT

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have a HP AIO 950Cse printer.

Suddenly it is printing on a slight slant.  May be a few degrees off
vertical.  I have run every test I can find, and they seem to look
okay, but my horizontal rows of text are on a slight slant.

All I am asking is - can anyone suggest where the problem might be and
how I can fix it?  I am looking for ideas.  The manual shows nothing.

Can you do an alignment test? That will set up any "jaggyness".

Is your paper tray adjusted properly? If it's a bit wide the paper can shift
when pulled into the printer, and go in crooked.

... or similarly, if one of the feed rollers is hardened
from old age, or has gunk on it, that may force the paper to
advance in an uneven rate side-to-side.

If all else fails, check that Italics icon in the
application, maybe it's toggled on?  :-)

No icon.  On this printer, the feed tray is horizontal at the bottom
of the printer front.  I examined it, and it looks fine - I see no way
to tweak it a little to make the printing come out straight.

So I guess one day I'll have to dismantle the printer to examine the
feed rollers etc.

Yes,  I have run all the 'alignment' options that I can find.

Thanks for your comments
