Hi, the paper is straight in the feeding drawer but comes out slightly wonky which means the printing is not straight on the page. Any ideas how to fix this? I have done the alignment and scanned it and aligned again. Obviously it didn’t work lol!

@Joanna6375, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
Was the alignment successful or did it give any error?
Try making a standalone copy and check if that works. By this, we can conclude if this is a hardware or a driver issue.
Reset the printer
- With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
- Wait at least 60 seconds.
- Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
- Turn ON the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
- Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.
Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.
