Printer font too small

When I print on my HP D1420 the font is so small I can barely read it. It wasn't always like this. Happened out of the blue as far as I know.

Any way I can adjust something to make it larger and readable? It happens usually when I am printing mapquest directions and important emails for example.

Thanks!! Bridget

I think your driver may have been corrupted; WIndows likes to do that now and then to see if you are paying attention - or maybe it's just evil.
Go to the Control Panel, open Printers and Faxes, find and delete the printer (icon) identifying your printer. If it shows more than one installation of your model, delete those too.
With the printer on and connected, reboot your computer. This should force Windows to 'find' the 'New Device' and reinstall the driver for it.
I would have the original HP installation disk handy in case you are using an older version of Windows that may not have the driver for that model in its library.

I Need to ask how do I change my font larger I have a H P Photosmart 5510


The printer prints out what it sees in your document. You need to resize the font in your document, which the printer will then see and print.

When I print out articles or emails the font is very small(tough to read) I can increase the font on my computer, but I want to print the bigger font size . I have an HP Photosmart4700


You can only change the font in the software that you are making your documents with or with your email try changing the font type and size. This is the only way to adjust the size of your font.

Font to small to read epson 740 printer


Font size? If it's below 5 pt., you must print with photo/best photo/photo rpm, with no high speed and micro (if available).

Prints out letters too small to read.


this is a very general question, since each program may have a slightly different varition of how to set the font size.  fortunately, most third party vendors set the font in their programs, the same way microsoft does in theirs.  for everything prior to Vista with word 2007, you would click on file and then select printer settings.  this sets the base font and other default printing features.  also, microsoft uses styles in some of its office products, like word for instance.  styles are likea template whch follows the same pattern for font; type face, and other enhancements like bold and italics.  if you get stuck and need more help, you can always click on help for the application you are using and type "set font" as a search string to find how to set font size for the program you are using.  basically printers do what the program tells them to do and by that i mean print letters and words in the style and font size you previosly have set.  if the letters are small, it is because the program is set to print small.  you need to set the font for every application you use.  if you want help with a specific application, please let me know what that is and i will be able to give you a more specific answer.  
good luck....

Font size problem when printing documents


Font sizes are a program thing nothing to do with the printer
 Examine your E-mail client set up in the read section[Different E-mail programs different setting ] probably under a heading
Tools/Options and look at how the font sizes are organized.
