In printing properties and printing preferences be sure and tell the printer you're printing labels, it allows more time for the card stock to reach the starting point.

Canon i450 uneven printing


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.)

My computer isn't printing the way it should. It is a CANNON 1800


Hello michelle9mit,

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 hope this helps,

Thank you,

Alignment page is printing crooked


Normal 0 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 over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP C4280 incorrect paper feed


Check your printer's capability.

Buy the card stock they recommend.

If all else fails, print on plain and take card stock to a copy shop and have them do it for you.

Walking there beats going nuts over stupid software or hardware problems

Printing slanted


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..
