When you say "not straight", do you mean it is skewed on the page, or that straight lines have steps in them, or maybe some other problem? Please be more specific about your problem.

check that the paper guides are tight up against the paper on the sheet feeder if your printout is skewed on the page.  If they are, and it still happens, the rollers that pull the paper in may be worn/dirty - not sure if this is easily fixable.
