Re: HP Officejet 6600

It sounds like the printer may be out of alignment.  Try printing a test page from the unit to see if the issue is coming from the hardware of the printer, such as alignment, or from the software of the PC.


Follow these steps to print a test page.
  1. Load plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. On the printer control panel, touch the Right Arrow ( ) to display more options.
  3. Touch Setup ( ). The Setup Menu displays.
  4. Touch the Down Arrow ( ), and then touch Reports .
  5. Touch Print Quality Report . The test page prints.
Figure 9: Print Quality Diagnostic Page

If this page comes out crooked as well, then try wiping the rollers down on the backside of the printer and performing an alignment process on the printer.
Use an automated tool to align the printhead
  1. Load plain white paper into the tray.
  2. Touch the Right Arrow ( ) to display the second navigation screen.
  3. Touch Tools , and then touch Align Printhead .
  4. Wait while the printer aligns the printhead and then prints an alignment page.
Let me know if this is able to fix your issue,
