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

Barcode scanner won't read printed labels


1. The printhead in your printer might be scratched (evidenced by thin white streaks through your print). This is common, and the most likely cause. Printhead must be replaced.
2. Material might be stuck on your printhead (usually evidenced by wide white streak vertically through print). Printing surface of printhead can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton ball.
3. The ribbon might be wrinkling due to uneven tension, producing intermittent diagonal streaks in your print. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment and/or proper media loading solves ribbon wrinkles.
4. Poor pressure and/or printhead alignment. Evidenced by grainy, light or no print on one side or the other of the media. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment solves printhead pressure and alignment issues.

When I try printing, the label sheet comes out without being printed then stops and the "condition/error" lights blink.


First you need to check the blink rate:
If fast this denotes a ribbon error - check ribbon is installed correctly.
If slow this denotes a label sense error - check the sensors are clean and are correctly aligned.

My printer always start printing short so that the lables end up on two pieces instead of one


We must establish whether the problem is a moving label or just that the labels are not aligned properly. Is hte printing split across the two labels consistant regardless of hte number of labels printed? If so, then the lables are not aligned properly. The user manual has the procedure for aligning these. This is part of the setup procedure.

If hte first line of the labels changes position on subsequent printings, then either the label size is not defined properly or the format being used is not correct. I don't have the manual handy at the moment so I can't give you the particulars, but if you could update this and tell me which of the 2 conditions you are experiencing, I will look up the specifics in the morning.

Thanks,
Dan

My new hp 2035n printer give an error when i try to print. the error says: load paper to tray 1


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Inkjet printer
  • Labels
  1. 1

    Prepare your printer. Make sure the power is on and the drivers are installed correctly on your computer.

  2. 2

    Wait for printer to stop. Make sure your printer is idle or ready or waiting for paper to be loaded. Don't load labels when your printer is already printing or running an operation.

  3. 3

    Prepare your labels. Make sure they are all facing the same way and are right side up. The label side should be face up. Many labels have an up and a down as well, look for a "this side up" or "load this way" indicator. Or take a look at the print preview before you print and make sure your labels will be fed correctly.

  4. 4

    Find the correct paper tray. Some printers have manual feeds and automatic feeds. Refer to your manual to find out which one you should use for labels. If you are going to use the manual feed, follow the manual's instructions. However, most printers will use the automatic feed, so read on.

  5. 5

    Align the paper guide. This is a moveable piece on the paper tray. There should be markers for the width of your paper. Standard pages are 8.5 inches. Move the marker so your labels will fit.

  6. 6

    Load your labels. Place your labels in the tray so it touches the immoveable side of the paper guide. Slide the paper guide over to touch the other side if it is not already close. Do not bend the labels by pushing in too far.

  7. 7

    Find the paper thickness lever. Try looking under the door that lets you change the cartridges. Or search around on the back or side. Check your manual, too.

  8. 8

    Set your paper thickness level. Usually you'll use the standard size. However, your printer may need to use a thicker setting. Check your manual.

  9. 9

    Change your media type. In your printer settings, find the media type option. You can access settings by clicking properties or settings on the print dialog right before you print. Select "labels."

One label printing over two label forms


Always check to make sure the printer is advancing one label at a time by itself before printing. If it does then you know the printer has a good read on the label size. Then if it misaligns when printing then you know the problem is in the printer driver because the printer is only going to do what it's told to do.

So best is to turn printer off, power up, press feed to see if one label feeds ok. If the label feed is off at this point then the printer needs to be calibrated which is done by pressing and holding FEED while turning the printer on.

Hope that helps !

HP Photosmart C4795. Can't get business cards to align correctly at top. Alignment is perfect on plain paper, but starts too high on card stock so every one is lined up wrong. What am I doing wrong? Using...


In printing properties and printing preferences be sure and tell the printer you're printing labels, it allows more time for the card stock to reach the starting point.

After changing the print head and setting the Ohm resistance, the left side of the printed labels are faded. I adjusted both head pressure and slid them back and forth but I can't get it to print right....


It's very possible the printhead wasn't installed correctly. It's pretty easy to get it wrong, as there are two pins on the latched printhead bracket that have to fit into two holes on the printhead itself. You have to get the alignment of these pins and holes just perfect before you tighten the screw. You have to make sure the aluminum plate on the printhead is sitting flat against the printer's printhead bracket before you turn the screw on top of the bracket.

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

Zebra printer prints too short.


If I remember correctly I corrected the same problem. What I did was opened printers and faxes and selected the printer. I then went into properties where you can select the size of label you are printing out. Once you do that the printer should align itself to the right size.
