Printing When a document is printing on my hp6122, the lines (vertical primarily), are not straight. Is this a problem with the paper feeding unevenly and, if so, what can I do about this, if anything?

This can be caused by an encoder strip that has become fogged with ink aerosol.

To clean the encoder strip follow the instructions here.

Pay careful attention to the cautions as the encoder strip is fragile and can be easily damaged if mishandled.

MY designjet 430 all of a sudden is not printing straight, but is printing wiggly lines. Any ides on how to fix this?


You can try Print-Quality Plot test to diagnose the problem. Load paper, when ready light up, then press Form Feed and Media Source keys together. After print is done, unload paper.

This plot consists six tests. The third one is Vertical Line Straightness (VLS) test. You can read the HP 430 Service Manual page 6-7, 6-8 and 6-9. These articles will tell you how to correect the problem.

Double printing on pixma mp470


Double printing or double feed??. Double printing means document printed in 2 copies. Double feed means printer feed double paper in one moment. For double printing,please check number of copy of document in printing preference properties.
Double feed occurs when pickup roller fails to pick the paper correctly. It's usually caused by shaft of paper pick up roller which is broken. You should replace drive assembly (include pick up roller) in this case

Blinking teardrop light blinking


Blinking drop light on HP6122 signifies an ink cartridge is out of ink. There are two cartridges -- color (larger of two) and black (smaller of two). Blinking drop light only indicates either, but not which. HP6122 service software and print driver are available from HP website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=83027&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us. HP6122 service software has a printer maintenance utility which includes ink cartridge monitor. Use the maitenance service utility to determine which (or both) cartridge is out of ink. With cartridge replacement, printer should automatically print test page, then reset and be ready for printing from your computer. To clear printed documents from print que, open the HP6122 print que via control panel > printers > double-click on HP6122 driver to show que > select document tab > select cancel.

Canon MP510 prints uneven lines.


I assume that you've cleaned the nozzles and alignment utility.  Try wiping the carriage bar with a lint free cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol. Also, the paper feed rollers may have collected some "goo" and should be cleaned with the rubbing alcohol. This should clear the problem.

Distorted printed documents


Try this steps first and these steps first :

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
