Two days ago the images and text I printed from my HP 5650 Ink Jet began to warp, to bow outward on one side of the page. We were just on the verge of printing out all of our holiday cards so this is very frustrating.
It is less noticeable on the lower quality printing settings and much more obvious on the highest quality settings. It gets worse as the page prints.
Could it be mechanical (one page of the paper dragging on the way through)? Could it possibly be software?

Sorry, I don't have one. Mine was a different problem; incompatibility between my old hp desk jet 5650 and my new Mac Book Pro. Just needed a newer printer!
When something like what you describe happens it is because the cartridge is dry; I change the cartridge.
Print head or ink cartidge clogged? Prevent this common problem. If you don't use your ink-jet on a regular basis, opting to use a laser for faster printing and sharper text, pick a day of the week (anyday) and make an entry into whichever calendar application you use to send a recurring reminder to print a test page from your ink-jet. Printing at least once a week will reduce the possibility that the cartridge or print head will clog with dry ink.
Hello, The problem you are having is caused by the fuser. The fuser is the part in the printer that heats up and basically melts ( fuses) the toner to the page. The fuser has a heat roller that is coated with teflon, your fuser coating has worn off in spots so the toner is sticking to the roller and causing the ghost image. You will need to order a replacement fuser. You can do a search on Google to find a replacement, the parts number is RM1-1082.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
go into the properties setting for the printer, go to advanced tab, then to the prinint defaults button on that tab. When you click on that - if you go to the advanced tab within there, you will see "mirror image" and i bet it says "ON" - click on the word mirror and it opens up the ability to set this back to off. Hope that helps!
Turn the unit off. Remove the cartridge and shake it back and forth. Ten place it and turn the unit back on. Also you can reset the counter on the cartridge, go to UNI KIT and look under Brother TN 110 refill support. These people sell refills. The ink you get with he printer is minimal. Also turning the printer off and back on will help with resetting. I found that there is plenty of toner left when the warning comes on.
Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements. Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.
well..assuming that the text is the same on all, this might be a settings issue, with the print spooler. That's in the set up of the printer, under properties..look into that, and perhaps you'll want to spool the whole job, instead of printing immediately?
print spooler memory is finite, so the longer jobs will take longer.
