If your printer is misaligned, your document will not print correctly. Sometimes images and text are not printed directly, and sometimes they are not printed at all. Misalignment may occur if the paper is jammed inside the printer, ink cartridge is dirty or clogged, cartridge is installed incorrectly, or you are using a low-quality cartridge. In addition, after completing a long print job, the printer alignment may shift. If the printer doesn’t print correctly, try running a test run of the printer test page.
