Solved!

My Laser Jet Pro MFP M227fdw is printing my 5160 Avery Labels crooked, shifting up slowly( L to R).

Laser Jet Pro MFP M227fdw
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Avery Labels, that are Product 5160 and made for Laser printers, keeps printing crooked, shifting up and to the left. It looks like it's pulling the right side up faster than the left side. But there doesn't appear to be anything stuck in the printer. What should I do?

Hi @DeskGal

 

Welcome to HP Forums. This is a great place to get support, find answers and tips.

 

I understand that the printer is not pulling the Avery Labels evenly when printing.

 

I'd like to help.

 

Do you have the same issue when printing with regular papers?

 

May I have the size of the Avery Label which you are using?

 

Please remove all the Avery Labels and perform a Printer Reset.

 

(1) Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.
(2) Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
(3) With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
(4) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
(5) Wait at least 60 seconds.
(6) Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
 NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
(7) Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
(8) Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.


The printer might go through a warm-up period. The printer lights might flash, and the carriage might move.
Wait until the warm-up period finishes and your printer is idle and silent before you proceed.
 

Put back the Labels on the Tray and adjust the width using the Paper Guides to ensure the Labels are held in place properly.

 

Try printing.

 

If the issue persists, please follow the instructions in this Link

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Thank you.
