As above its printing text with a slight angle, mainly from left to right but also has done it from right to left.

Have swapped the tray 2 paper with tray 3 (a4 with a5) and its better, but the a5 paper is also doing it slightly also.

Ideas?

You can try cleaning all the rollers in the printer's paper path, and hopefully that will fix the problem.

However, printers are not guaranteed to print the image perfectly squarely on the page. It can be at a slight angle, and/or offset to one or more edges. A typical laser printer is spec'd so the printed image is within 1.5 to 2 mm of the correct position. And yes, that can vary from tray to tray.

normally it is the pickup roller- try cleaning it - or check the paperpath
you may need a maintenance kit :  http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF13a/18972-18972-3328060-15077-236268-4184772.html?dnr=2

Those bits of paper would normally cause jams, which would probably have been easier to find.

And, thanks for them points!
