I found the problem with the image coming out skewed.

When the toner cartridge is replaced it is easy to dislodge one of the springs on the inside .

There is one on the left and one on the right side.
If one comes loose then the paper will feed through crooked.

Push the copy button with the cover up and no paper on the glass. Is the light bar straight up and down, or is it crooked? I can't imagine how paper could go thru the machine crooked, but check it out if you can. If the paper is too thin, it may not be getting grabbed by the rollers right.

When pages come out of the copier the image is printed crooked. The paper comes out straight, so feed is correct. Image is just crooked? Why?


Does this happen when you using the document feeder?? Try placing the original document on the big glass see what happens might be you document feeder needs to be adjusted or the original document is hitting a obstruction in the path as it is being scanned. Does it print OK? Vise copy?

What causes the copy to be lopsided when using the feeder


I'm not sure what lopsided means??? Are you saying that the image is crooked? If you feed the paper 180 degree then the way you are feeding it now, are they still crooked? Also, do the pages get jammed? Also, look to see if one of the hings are broken? If one is broken, it's a dead give away for your problem. If that is not the problem, I would loosing up the screw that hold the adf on and move the adf a bit till the copies come out straight. Once the copies are coming out straight, tighting the adf hing screws and you are done...... Good Luck

Image print on paper slanting


Does it only happen when you copy through the auto feeder or from the contact glass too? If it's just from the feeder, then the rollers in the feeder are slipping and not feeding the paper straight, and need to be cleaned/replaced. If it happens from the contact glass, then it is most likely the rollers that move the paper through the machine that need cleaning - primarily the registration roller, but really all rollers from the paper tray to the exit should probably be serviced, and/or replaced where necessary.

Paper goes in but does not come out


I would suggest opening the printer up and taking a good look inside to see if there is any kind of obstruction. Jus a tiny piece of torn paper is enough to cause the whole feed system to jam up. Another thing to look for it that if the paper it getting pulled in straight. If it goes crooked on its way in, your paper feed itself might be the root cause.

Go into the paper menu and set the multipurpose feeder paper size to letter. It will work if the paper size is set correctly for the MPF.

Document feeder jams


Hi,
When you put your paper in, check the side clamps are set correct, if there is a gap at one edge, your feeding will be all over the place.
Tuck up the clamps to clamp the paper, not too tight where you bend the paper, but tight enough to hold it correctly.
Regards
Richard

HP 7410 Paper Feeds in Crooked


The paper size in the feeder and the paper size in your printing properties have to match.
I.e. if your printing format says "letter size" and in your feeder is legal or A4 paper you will get this error.

Please reply if this does not help.

Copying problem


check paper through paper cassette, then through bypass,if fault occurs on both, it is possible the registration roller area is possibly faulty.

There are other reasons for this relating to image formation, but please start with paper feed.

Auto-Feeder Does not feed paper evenly


There must be a small jam in the feeder. You can try sliding a business card or heavier plastic card through the feeder all the way across. Chances are it will push whatever is stuck in there out.
