Only prints half the page

Hi - my 1290 recently started ejecting the page after only printing half of it. The print preview looks good. No errors are reported. Even a test page prints only halfway. Have reinstalled drivers. Any ideas?

When this has happened to me I've cured it simply by switching off the printer, waiting a few seconds, then switching it on again!

This has happened to me too, on a PC and iMac. The problem only occurred using the USB port. On the PC, the problem was resolved by using the parallell port. Much slower printing, though :o(
The iMac does not have a parallell port, so now I have the problem again. How can it be, that Epson has not solved this in five years time..??

Have you been using any new software to create your documents? Go through the full dialog box of page setup info. You may have conflicting instructions, i.e. profile and landscape pages, margins, default printer settings, etc. Worth a try.

What you could do is uninstall the printer, shut down the PC. Reboot the system, reinstall the printer and try to print again. Since you say you have checked all settings this should correct any coding responsible for the behaviour.

Good luck & God bless!

Printing in my e-mail message from someone it only prints half of it. Also it cuts of on the right side.


These are general things you should consider in a checklist fashion when trying to troubleshoot problems printing documents from certain applications. I have no specific information for your specific printer and the behavior you are observing.

Things to check to ensure proper printing:

1) Make sure that you have installed the LATEST driver software for your printer (you can get drivers online from the HP web site. Make sure it is working properly by printing a test page, if you have not done so yet.

2) Does your email software have a print preview? Make sure that the printer selected in your email software is the HP printer, then do the preview. How does it look? If you see your problem in the preview, then you need to do something in the software. Set the printing to be in default font style and size, as well as page margins.

3) When you print, does your printer report an error message that could indicate why it printed it only on the part of the text, and why it was cut-off on the right side. Check page orientation (portrait vs. landscape). In Windows systems, the print dialog windows also contain options for adjusting the page content to fit the page (auto-zooms, etc). Look at these options carefully.

If you have additional information to add after going through these checks, then do it.

Yepperz... Here is your fix

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS AND FAXES (or PRINTERS AND OTHER HARDWARE).
2. Right click your printer, and select PROPERTIES. (If your printer is not listed, click on VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS first).
3. Select the ADVANCED tab.
4. Select PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER.
5. Click on APPLY (if applicable), then OK.
6. Restart your computer.
7. Try printing now.
