My printout has a slight slant. What should I do?

  • If your printouts are slanted, try these solutions:

    • Make sure the paper is loaded in the correct direction.
    • Make sure your paper meets the specifications for your product.
    • Do not load more than the recommended number of sheets.
    • Slide the edge guides against the edges of the paper.
    • Make sure the paper type setting matches the type of paper you loaded.
    • Select a higher print quality setting in your printer software.
    • Turn off any high speed settings in your product software.
    • Align the print head.
    • Adjust the print quality.
    • If aligning the print head did not improve the quality, disable the Bidirectional Printing setting.
    • Make sure the product is not printing while tilted or at an angle.
