Printing is not good

Assuming you have ink, you need to clean and/or realign the print heads.
Go to properties on the software for the printer and look for maintenance cleaning and realignment should be in there

Print was only appearing on right hand side of page. I noticed the carousel was mis aligned so I realigned. But problem keeps on reappearing. None of the gears appear to be I am wondering...

If it's still printing on only one side the carousel is still misaligned.
You don't say what you did to realign it.
I think that now is the time to get a trained printer tech to look at it.
Or else you are going to be realigning it until the cows come home.

Toner cartiridges are full but pages are printing blank

Turn your printer off. Disconnect from your computer by disconnection of cable, from the back of the printer. Unplug your printer from the wall.

Remove your print cartridges and gently wipe off the connections (copper or brass colored) with a dry lint-free cloth. Check to see if the bottom of the ink gates (holes where ink comes out) are clogged. Wipe gently with an almost dry but damp cloth, once or twice. Ink will continually come out, so only do this once or twice.

Plug printer back into the wall, connect power cable to printer. Turn printer on.

HP Photosmart will run through a series of checklists. First, it will ask if you would like to "realign" the printer heads. Press "enter" or "yes" and allow heads to realign. If you always have your printer and computer on, this realignment never happens, therefore the heads where the ink is dispersed from the modules will get clogged, and ink will never come out.

It is out of alignment

there are steps you need to do to realign your cartridge..
1. Press "Setup"...
2. Press "5" to select "Maintenance"
3. Press "2" to start the "Align Print Cartridge"

see if there is any color missing on the print out. If there is.... Clean the Print Cartridges. To do this follow the step 1 & 2 of realigning the cartridge.. On step 3, instead of pressing "2", press "1" to start clean the print cartridges.

I hope this steps align your printer cartridge correctly..

Much appreciated if you rate this help...thanks..

Printer issue

I can only suggest that you should use genuine HP ink carts. Try all new carts and realign again. Hopefully it is under warranty. HP is good at exchanging.
