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

HP PCS1402 keeps printing test sheet on start up


Have u recently changed ur ink cartridge ? If so the printer is printing an alignment page . Turn it off then on , so it prints the alignment page. load the alignment page on the scanner glass and press the "Scan" button to complete the alignment. Once the alignment has completed the alignment page will not be printed again until you change the next cartridge. See your user manual for details.

When duplex printing I regularly get creased


Check the rollers for any mis-alignment. Try loosening them and re-aligning them again. It should'nt be too hard.

The printer is saying printing started and printing complete but yet their is nothing printing at all; the print jobs are collecting in the queue. Printer keeps telling me alignment problems when I...


It sounds like it is trying to print an alignment sheet, so that the printer can then scan the sheet, and see how bad it is off, if any. Start here.

Look in your user manual to see how to force an alignment check. There is also usually a setting in the driver as well (icon in the system tray near the clock).

How do i align my printer, it's printing blurry


Setting the Alignment:
  1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.

  2. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set.

  3. Press the up or down navigation key to select ALIGNMENT and press Menu/Set or Set.

  4. Press Black (Mono) Start or Color (Colour) Start. The machine begins printing the Alignment Check Sheet.

  5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the alignment needs adjustment.

  6. Examine the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI test prints on the Alignment Check Sheet. If the number 5 sample of both the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI most closely matches the 0 sample, press 1 (YES).
    If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.

  7. Press Stop/Exit.

Laser Jet 4 Plus


Make sure your sheets are aligned and tucked in with the paper feed rails, otherwise, it will slightly veer off one of the sides.

Also, if you haven't replaced the paper feeder rollers, do so, one must be worn out more than the other, and this also prevents the sheets from going through straight.

Hope That Helps!
