Prints in staggered columns

Our hp 7410 officejet printer prints in staggered vertical columns. Everthing is not aligned. Alignment test passed. Will print fine if copying only. Print from computer or faxes coming in, not good.

What you describe is typically caused by ink aerosol building up on the encoder strip, a thin band of plastic that the printer uses to keep track of its location.

You can gently clean the encoder strip as shown at HP's website here. Be sure to heed to cautions and notes. Do not use any solvents other than water and be gentle to avoid damaging the encoder.

Vertical alignment


Usually this is asked when the printer is using more than one page of paper to print what the word processor shows as 1 page. This is fixed in the word processor program print set up module that opens when you click Print.
If you really want to change the vertical alignment of the print heads, then you need a different printer.

You can align the print cartridges at any time from the control panel or by using the HP Image Zone software on your computer. Aligning the print cartridges ensures high-quality output.
Note: If you remove and reinstall the same print cartridge, the HP all-in-one will not prompt you to align the print cartridges. The HP all-in-one remembers the alignment values for that print cartridge, so you do not need to realign the print cartridges.

To align the cartridges from the control panel:
  1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. Press Setup.
  3. Press 6, then press 2.
  4. This displays the Tools menu and then selects Align Print Cartridge.
  5. The HP all-in-one prints a print cartridge alignment sheet and aligns the print cartridges.

Hi,

Click on the Setup button,
Scroll till you find Tools - Press OK
Scroll till you find Clean Cartridge - Press OK

It will print an alignment sheet. Align the printer

If this does not work - try the Align Printer Option from Tools of Setup menu again from Printer front panel.

Let me know if none of these work.

Try to realign the printhead.
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
  2. Open the printer Toolbox , and select the Printer Services tab.
  3. Click Align Printheads . The Align Printheads window opens. Click Align .
  4. The printer prints an alignment page. The lines in the patterns should appear to be straight. Click OK when the page finishes printing.
If that does not work you can try changing the ink cartridges and repeat the align process

I know this sounds dumb, but alignment pages use the color cartridge to make black print. Are you sure your black cartridge is working? and what does the windows test page come out looking like?
