Problem getting the printer to print with the correct alignment

HP 1210 Printer: I am trying to print on 5.5"x8.5" paper and it prints half off the paper to the right. Basically it seems to think that it is printing on regular letter size paper, although it is set to print on the correct size paper and the page set up is set correctly. What am I doing wrong?

    Yes, I am trying to print 5.5 X 8.5 paper but it is not offered as a standard size by I type in the sizes as user defined, but it will not print in the center of the paper when fed at the extreme right of the tray. The print view shows it centered nicely

How do I align the HP Laserjet 1020 to print straight? Its printing crooked every time. No two sheets are in the same position


Most likely to be a page feed problem, look online to clean page feeder rubber rollers.
Try here for the pdf manual which covers problem with jams and skewing

My printer keeps on saying align cartridges and I do. But once it finishes it just go backs to saying the same thing! And yes it says it passed.


turn printer on/off, unplug, plug in, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. HP has an awesome web site for trouble shooting problems
hope this helps and good luck

The printer won't print because it says it is out


Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.

Need 2 calibrate my hp 1210 printer


Hi *s*

(bottom left corner windows START)
got to;
start/settings/printers/ and click

right click your printer and select printing preferences
click on the tab that says SERVICES
then click on the services icon button (picture)

you will see three choices;
align,
clean
print a test page.

Aligning is what you want.(calibration is just a different word)

You can also remove the ink cartridges as you usually do and then put them back in, this triggers and automatic printed page and then walks you through scanning and the alignment.*s*

if by chance you still have blurry printing and know your machine should be ok, try cleaning.( same procedure, different last choice- you clean the heads)

You can also check to see if the proper paper is selected. For instance, if you are trying to print heavy greeting card paper it must be set to that or it will not print properly. *s*

If you have thrown up your hands and tried all this, and nothing works. Go through your printer preferences and select SET DEFAULT SETTINGS buttons.
It will knock everything back to the way it left the factory *S*

Thank you and good luck. Please remember to give my answer a rating *S*

HP 1210 all in one printer does not have a maintenance button to allow me to align cartridges. Prints landscape pages out of alignment; I have tried taking the cartridge out and putting it back but it...


On the printer hold down the CANCEL button then press and hold the ON/RESUME button until the CHECK PAPER and CHECK PRINT CARTRIDGE LIGHT both blink simultaneously.
When both lights are blinking press CANCEL, COPIES, PAPER TYPE, and COLOR START COPY one after the other. All this must be done in under 10 seconds for it to work. Once this sequence of buttons is completed correctly in under ten seconds an alignment page will print.
