The problem could be as simple as your paper not going through the tray straight, or just aligning the print cartridges. Make sure when your paper is pulled through the printer that it isn't getting pulled more quickly on one side than the other. Also, go into your printer control panel to find the 'alignment option' and follow the steps to complete a proper alignment. If that doesn't work, get back to me with more details about the problem. (is it on a slant, are half the sentences printing on a different angle etc.)
First of all you will need to clean the surfaces of the DRUM, and paper feed path and assembly. This might be the cause of most of your problems. I would suggest also making sure the paper feed sensors are cleaned and tested for the proper voltage levels. As far as the slanting paper the paper feed mechanism may have to be cleaned and aligned. I would also make the suggestion that if you do not have a mechanical background you should get a professional service center to do the work for you, but first get an estimate on the cost and if it is too much, you may want to consider getting a new printer and getting a maintenance plan for it.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud
Look at the paper tray and make sure the guides are aligned properly. Most of the time, there's nothing you can do except make sure the paper stack is arranged as evenly and as tightly as possible. I've found about a .05" variation in mine that leaves room for the paper to slant.
So much for manufacturing tolerances..
