Crooked printing on HP C3180

My printer all of the sudden prints everything crooked on the page. The cartriges have been realigned and everything is clear, color is good, etc., it's just all crooked.

    When paper begins to feed into the printer, it becomes very crumpled on one side and jams ever time

  • yumtoast Feb 09, 2008

    i figured out what was wrong- the back of the printer had been bumped loose on one side, and since it has those rolly wheels on it it was causing the paper to go through crooked making it jam and print badly.

    I have been trying to make business cards using Avery products as I always have and my C3180 will not print straight. I have checked and cleaned everything. I have even tried 2 different types of business cards but nothing seems to work. I have been fighting this issue for weeks now and am so fustrated.

Sounds like a feed path problem to me...get some inkjet cleaner sheets and run them through the printer as directed. It may take 2 or 3 sheets for it to work

I have a Canon printer. Whenever pictures or text gets a double or blurry image I open the printer solutions menu. It sounds as though there is a problem with inkjet alignment. By clicking the realignment button the printer will automatically realign the jets. I usually test the alignment by printing a page from that program. All the line segments should line up.

Printing crooked, blurred, bad roller?


Sounds like when you pulled out the paper jam, you misaligned the print carriage. That would produce both the noises you hear and the print quality issues. HP.com has a few web pages on their site that might help. The first one deals with noisy print carriages. Unfortunately, it's not dedicated to just your product, but the steps should generally apply:

Resolving Noisy Print Carriage Issues

There's a separate web page available for troubleshooting crooked or skewed printouts:

Printed Text or images are Crooked or Skewed

If all else fails, unplug the power cord from the printer, wait 20 seconds or so, then plug it back in. That should restart the printer and make it go into a self test which may include a realignment procedure. Watch for any error messages on the display on the printer's control panel. Sometimes to realign, it prints out two test pages and instructs you to place the first printout on the scanner bed and then press Enter.

Go to the following web page and when it opens, scroll down to the section "Replacing the print cartridges", and find step 9 in that section for alignment instructions.

Replacing Print Cartridges

Good luck.

C3180 will not print as error occurs even when installed


Try printing a manual self-test page:

1. Press and hold Cancel on the control panel.
2. While holding Cancel, press Start Copy Color.

The self-test report prints, containing the serial number and service ID.

This should tell you if it is a problem with the unit itself, or with communication between the unit and your computer.

HP C3180 all in one printer won't realign


Hi,

We've encountered several problem like this. Hope this gives an idea; I understand the cartridge will not moved back to park tray or flash ink tray back and forth because the return pick-up guide were not properly placed into each original position. It will block the ink tray moving back and forth. You can roll back the roller into the original place by removing the back cover if it has, then turn the pick-up roller slowly allowing the roller to turn and backed to its original position. Removed also remains of jammed paper pieces.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

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.
