There is a paper guide that supports paper on the tray, if you look closely you can even see the paper sizes that corresponds with your printer either (lettter size or 8 1/2 x 11) if this is not set correctly then you can get skewed on your prints, if i understand you correctly, or kindly elaborate some more

Yes, it is possible to be the problem. Most of the time you would replace the whole fixing unit, it could also be the paper feed rollers in the paper tray or the manual feed tray. Good Luck

I have an HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One that was purchased in 2008. I have using it to scan slides and create JPEG files from which I have been making prints, mostly 4x6 format. Just today for the first...

Issue The All-in-One is working, but the printed output is not straight on the page. It is skewed or crooked. Solution Follow these steps to resolve this issue: Step one: Ensure that the paper is loaded correctly
  1. To make sure that the paper is loaded correctly, check the following conditions:
    • The right side of the paper is even with the right side of the paper tray.
    • The paper guides are adjusted to the edges of the paper.
    • The paper is flat in the tray.
  2. Make sure only one type of paper is loaded in the All-in-One.
  3. Make sure the rear access door is securely installed.
Print a diagnostic page If no identifiable problem exists with the paper or the guides, print a test diagnostic page to see if the unit is operating correctly. Follow these steps to print a diagnostic page:
  1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Self-Test Report . The HP All-in-One prints a Self-Test report, which might show the source of the printing problem.
Validate that the printer is within skew tolerance Follow these steps to validate that the printer is within skew tolerance using the self test report:
  1. Fold the paper horizontally into half. Look through the paper to see the single and double lines at the top and bottom of the page.
  2. The line over the single line and the line below the two lines should overlap exactly.
  3. The single line at the top of the page should fall between the two lines at the bottom of the page.
Step two: Clean the paper rollers Follow these steps to clean the paper rollers:
  1. Turn off the unit and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door.
  3. Wipe the paper rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with distilled or bottled water. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around.
  4. Allow the rollers to dry completely, and then replace the rear access door.
  5. Plug the unit back in and turn it on.
Step three: Service the printer If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. If this does not resolve the probelm I suggestsdownloading the HP Print Diagnoostic Utility:

Printer is printing crooked. Paper is in tray correctly.

There is some remnants of paper from a paper jam at or near the rollers. Lift the cover and look inside with a flashlight. Remove any and all pieces of paper that you may see. Then dampen a cloth and put a dab of dish detergent on the cloth. Use it to clean all the rollers that you see. Look at the side that the paper is being skewed,especially. If the unit has a rear door, look and clean there too.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Hi, The paper on my Canon MP490 printer goes in skewed to one side which causes the printed page to bunch up and mess up the printing. It doesn't matter whether there is one page or multiple pages in...

There is something in the input tray that is stuck right behind the long feed roller.
Unplug the printer, turn it on its back. Get a thin long flat skrew driver. Push it trough the paper out area and reach the feed roller. Then push it between the feed roller and pressure rollers rising them one by one to release what is stuck behind them. Hopefully it will fall out the input tray.

When I print something on my hp 6210, the words and pictures are bisected and skewed. Why is it doing this?

You may have a paper path problem, if the paper skews during printing you will get skewed lines, try cleaning all the paper path rollers you can access, look for any paper debris.

Rollers should be available; you replace the whole roller, not just the rubbers.

This is a common problem. If you've checked the side guides, change the rollers, but this type of problem is sometimes uncorrectable. Some printers just don't like some paper.

Canon PIXMA MP600 printer - paper feed

Issue: Paper feeds skewed
Solution: Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Operation Panel - MP600

Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Unit's Operation Panel If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit. Caution: Since the cleaning process wears down the paper feed roller, perform this procedure only when necessary.
  1. Ensure that the machine is powered on and remove any paper from the auto sheet feeder or the cassette.

  2. Use the <Feed Switch> button to select the paper source where you do the paper feed roller cleaning. Click for here additional information.

  3. Press the <HOME> (A) button.


  4. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel (B) or press the right / left arrow to select [Settings], then press the <OK> button.

  5. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel (B) or press the right / left arrow to select [Maintenance], then press <OK>.

  6. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel (B) or press the up / down arrow to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.


  7. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press the <OK> button. (The paper feed roller cleaning starts.)

  8. To check if the rollers are clean, load a sheet of Letter-sized plain paper in the same paper source you selected in step 2.

  9. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel (B) or press the up / down arrow to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.


  10. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press the <OK> button. (Paper will be fed.)

    Note: If paper is not fed properly, repeat steps 4 through 10 above up to three times.

Paper Source
Press the <Feed Switch> button to switch to toggle between the Automatic Sheet Feed (ASF) or Cassette. The light will come on when the <Feed Switch> is set for that paper source.

Out of paper message shows for any paper I load

Well, let's take a shot at this! There is a paper present sensor in these things. I can't tell you exactly where it is, but it will be in the paper path, somewhere. Check for this and make sure that there isn't any dust, paper scraps or similar causing problems. Also, make sure that it hasn't been broken or come loose from it's mounting.
Sure hope this helps!
