SOURCE: 1 inch of left margin left even on the self test

Try using the "manual" width calibration. With the printer on, press and hold the green button. It will flash once, then twice, e.g. the sequence:

* *
* * *
* * * *
* * * * *

after the 5th flash, let go of the button. The printer will begin drawing rectangles which get wider and wider. Press the green button once (don't hold it) to indicate "when" the width is appropriate. However, I found the width was best calibrated when I let the printer draw rectangles right until the edge (where it automatically stops).

Try printing from the rear tray. My printouts from the bottom tray come out crooked, but the ones from the rear tray seem fine.

Have you tried to reset your printer, not just realign. Power down completely, you want to reset it and then align itself,

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.

In the tools and/or setting menu there is a way to turn that off to not print a report when this happens. Could be under Reports, settings or tools.

Why are my black & white photos printing in purple?

Because your printer probably thinks they are in colour.
Check the settings on your print process.

Envelopes print crooked

A decent printer should print a #10 envelope without a problem. If this model won't do so, return it and get another printer. Suggest Epson or Canon -- AVOID HP printers.

Printer will not allow paper to flow freely; it jams on the left side and prints crooked.

first cancel all the prints going on and switch off and on the printer and keep the paper slowly
