When printing onto letter-sized cardstock / index card letter, the printer prints off-center by anywhere from half an inch to 2 inches. I've tried printing out of MS Word and Nuance PDF. Printing the same document(s) on plain printer paper has no issues. I've tried selecting different paper types on the printer/print settings, adjusting the margins manually, running the "Align Printer" tool, running the "Clear Smudge" tool, printing different documents, moving the printer, cleaning the printer, updating the drivers, etc. It seems like the more I try to fix it, the more off-center the print gets. When printing portrait, the print is too far to the top. When printing landscape out of MS Word, the print is too far to the left. When printing landscape out of Nuance (which rotates the page the other way from what Word does), the print is too far to the right. This has been an ongoing problem for months and I'm out of ideas. Please help!
