How to reset the CLP 500N to factory setting?

Does anyone know how to reset the printer to factory setting? I am having problems with the alignment on my prints. On the preview of the print, it shows the full page of info. But when the printer prints it, it does not print all the info that is shown on the preview.

Does any one know how to fix this problem? Or maybe how to reset the printer to factory??

It can also depend on the software your printing from. I know AdobeReader8 now has the ability to change where the page prints.

Try reseting the printer to factory defaults- also does the same problem happen when you a printing from a computer or trying to print a scan directly on the printer?

try restoring the printer to factory default settings, you can also try reinstalling the drivers on your computer.

Printer does not start at the begining of the page. Could have removing a paper jamb from the front caused a timing issue?


I doubt it,do you use print preview to make sure just what your printing?Any time you print you can preview by clicking on the little arrow next to the printer Icon.Perhaps it's in your settings?Pull up Printers and Faxes in your start menu,click on your printer and you'll get a small window.Click printer and in that menu is printing preferences,under features click factory defaults.This should reset everything and hopefully get your printer back to it's old self.

Aligning print head doesn't fix the printing


You only need to clean the encoder strip. The plastic strip behind the carriage assembly. Wipe it gently with a damp Q-tip and the double lines will go away.
