You can try adjusting the top side and left side numbers within the printer driver. After changing the numbers, and you still have alignment issues, then you will need to get the printer professionally cleaned in order to get the sensors back to factory spec. PF-1 and PF-2 cleanings run $200 - $350 depending on how much ink needs to be removed from the vital sensors, gears and motors.

HP Deskjet F2180 Margins incorrect for label printing


I eventually managed to print my labels one sheet at a time by forcing the label top edge down the page. You can insert one or two lines above the label template and adjust the font size to get the right distance. It took a bit of trial & error but got there in the end. Hope it helps you

Lexmark X83 prints streakily or not at all


Have you used a new cartridge.

Do the test for running and cleaning new cartridge heads and the alignment procedure..

(Go to Start, settings, printers, right click on printer then click properties, cartridge maintenance.)

Other thing that might cause problem is build up of ink in right side of machine below printer cartridges.

You will have to strip down machine to get at this area.
Make a note of exactly what action you take when doing this so that you can bits back together.

I use cotton buds to get at the build up of ink or tissue wound round end of pointed object.
Go gently. When you have cleared what you can care reassemble bits and go through above procedure again. Check for any unusual noises that may denote part of mechanism has worn.

Pf2 ink cartridege recognition issues


Sounds like you have either a defective ink cartridge, or the sensor that recognizes the cartridge is either dirty, broken or out of alignment.

Have black line on right side of screen and cant see all of icon on left side of screen


What type of screen do you have? If it is a CRT (rather than a flat panel) it is probably due to the screen alignment.

Go into the menus on the actual monitor and look for something called Horizontal Alignment (or similar). You should be able to move the whole picture left and right. You may need to play with some of the other settings (e.g. Horizontal Size) to get it just right.
