Question about Makita 2704 Contractors 15 Amp 10 Inch Benchtop Table Saw
SOURCE: Table Saw blade
Did you remove the center plate? It has to come out before you can remove the blade. Also make sure that the saw is unplugged before you go any further. If you still have questions contact me and I will do what I can. Also if you would like you can download a schematic of this tool at Makitatools.com just type in your model and look at the schematic. Good luck

SOURCE: Blade Alignment?
ok yep your blade is out of alignment with the fence. It is closer to the fence at the rear than the front. You need to make the modification or adjustment to your fence, if it allows that, and then worry about the miter slots later (which should be adjusted miter slot to blade, not miter slot to fence). You might be able to adjust the miter slot to blade by moving the actual table and then securing witht he table mount bolts. Check your manual for how to align the fence.
You do want to fix that though as it can be potentially dangerous and result in kickback of the workpiece which is a rather SCARY thing, and very dangerous.

Either the saw is a cheapo and you can't do anything about it. If it is a better quality saw it should have at least four bolts or lugs where it it fastened to the table. Turn it upside down and locate those bolts. Loosen them - don't remove them- and turn it right side up. Now shift the motor assembly around until it is parallel with the miter slot. Make sure it is unplugged the whole time. Turn it upside down again and tighten the bolts. Recheck it and if it moved repeat the procedure.

Try using a 1/16 thick flat washer as a shim where the mounting bolts/trunions mate with table. 1/16 shim on front mounting bolt will shift front of blade over 1/16 or 1 on the back mounting bolt will shift back of blade over
