Misalignment on 2 sided printing

HP Deskjet 4535
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When i try duplex printing, the 1st side prints as is shown on the PC screen, but the 2nd side alignment is altered. It prints 1-2 lines below the actual alignment on screen. how do i correct this? Right-left alignment and alignment on i sided printing is fine.

Misalignment on 2 sided printing

I ran the print and scan doctor, which led me to update some softwares. Then i restarted my laptop to finish the update. But after restarting I am not able to print anything. It says "Error printing on HP Deskjet 4550 series" or "Printer in error state". I unplugged the printer, restarted it, stiil says the same. I tried aligning the cartridges. It was able to print the alignment page. Then I ran the print doctor again, it said there were some printing errors that were fixed. Then i ordered a Test print from the print doctor, that also could not be printed.

My laptop and printer are connected to the same funtioning wifi. My laptop recogonises the printer, even says printer is ready before i begin printing. There is no problem in scanning to laptop or making photocopies.

 

What do i do now? i had already uninstalled and reinstalled the printer software with the CD provided with the printer, before the alignment problem started.

@Itachih95, let us check if the hardware of the printer is working fine. Try these steps:

 

Make sure about the connectivity between these devices.

  • Obtain the IP address of the printer – You can touch the “wireless” icon on the printer control panel to obtain the IP address.
  • Type the IP address at the top of your web browser to obtain the printer EWS page on your computer.
  • If you get any security notification, click on show details/advanced and 'proceed to this website'.
  • Go to tools > print test page

Also, print a test page from the printer control panel

  1. On the printer control panel, swipe the display to the left, and then touch Setup ().

  2. Touch Tools.

  3. Swipe up on the display, and then touch Print Quality Report.

Let me know how this goes.

Please try restarting the print spoolers -

 

1. Turn off the printer using the power button.
2. Search Windows for run, and click the Run Windows application in the list of results.
3. Type services.msc in the Run window, and then press Enter on the keyboard.
The Services menu opens.
4. Right-click Print Spooler and select Stop.
5. After the service has been stopped, close the service window and use Windows Explorer to browse to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS.
6. Delete all files inside the PRINTERS folder.
7. Restart your computer.
8. Turn on your printer.

 

Let me know.

I stopped the printer spool, restarted the laptop, then removed the printer drivers and again restarted the laptop. Then went to the link sent in one of the previous replies to download and install the printer softwares. i still am not able to print. Still says "Error printing on HP DJ 4530 series (network)" or "Printer in error state".

Have you tried making a standalone copy and check if that works?

If the printer is able to make a copy, check the network connectivity between the printer and the PC

You may run HP Print and Scan Doctor. Click here

Make sure the printer and the PC are connected to the same wireless network.

This printer supports 2.4GHz only.

 

Keep me posted for further assistance.
