I'm not sure if this will help, but are you printing from adobe? If the page is a little small on the pdf and you have Adobe set to "adjust paper size to fit document" the printer will keep trying to print to A4, which is smaller than letter.

If the printer itself is doing this when printing from any program than I'm not sure what is wrong.

Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling driver? Do you have the newest version of the driver, i have the same printer and I think online a May 2008 driver is available

Red LED keeps flashing


Hi

I've been stuck with a flashing red paper light for a while. The printer could print from the manual tray and could also print test or diagnostic pages.
So I thought it might be driver related, and indeed it was.
There's a nasty setting in the printer properties that makes the printer go woo-hoo. So go to printer properties > tray settings. Check the "paper size" of "Tray 1". If it's set to "undefined", change it to your corresponding paper format. Click Update, Apply. Now print happily.
I still wonder why that setting magically changed. Hope this helps someone.

The first 2 letters do not print


Hello, I assume you mean the 1st 2 characters of a document are'nt printing. If this is so you could try setting the left and right margins in a bit more in case you are trying to print something out of its range. Also, make sure your printer properties are set for the correct paper size you're using (this'll be under 'printing preferences) it may be set by default to 'letter' when you're using A4, or vice versa. Also, if you're using MS Word, check the paper size setting is also the same as the one you using.
Hope this helps!

If i send 10 pages to print I have to press the ready button after the completion of printing of each page. After the first page has been printed, the red light blinking on paper on printer. I then have to...


sounds like your printing to a custom page size in your printer properties in the computer, go into control panel >> printers >> right click your printer >> go to properties Set the page size to A4 or Letter. When you go to print your document, use the printer properties button to make sure your page size remains at A4 or Letter. I think the printer may be asking you to insert your custom page size, and then waiting for the "Go" button to print, next page . repeat. (kinda like if you were inserting envelopes or greeting cards), Also check that your page setup in your word /office software is set to letter, as this would cause the same result.

The printer changed to small print


Make sure paper size you set is correct...For example if you take the print on A4 size paper and page size you set is "Letter" the the font will be small.

I just bought a new Dell with Windows 7. Installed the updated driver from brother. Printer worked OK. As a page was feeding back into the machine it got stuck. I removed the page. But since then the paper...


This could mean that the printer is expecting paper of a particular size (for duplex printing). Press the job cancel button and check that the paper size is set for the correct paper type (A4, Letter or Legal). That light will also blink if the back cover is open or the duplex tray is not installed.

How do I change the default paper size from Letter to A4 in my HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless?


Don't set by using the "Print" option.
Go to [Start]
[Printers and Faxes]
right-click on the HP Printer entry
! Don't select "Printing Preferences"! from there
Select [properties]
Select [Advanced] tab
Select [Printing Defaults]
[Advanced}
(I know, the screen looks the same, but it functions differently this way)
Change paper size to "Letter"
[OK, OK, OK]
*done*

Load A4


A4 is for european size, if you are printing on a letter size this is a mismatched.
you need to change your files printer properties to A4 or letter size, or change your printer paper size.
better yet cancel this document and send it again , this time by checking the printer properties was set to your desired paper size

Sounds to me like the word doc's page size is not set to the same as your printers tray.

In word, file , page set up. page size/paper size is set to "letter" in US I think is standard, it's A4 in Oz

On printer driver check page size setting too

Contral panel, printers and faxs, RIgHT click on brother printer icon, properties, printing preferences, page size
