Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies
How do I print legal size on the nx420
Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya!
Here's what you do:
1.) Click start, then click control panel.
2.) Double click Printers and Faxes.
3.) Right click your Epson NX420 printer and click properties.
4.) The general tab is displayed, click Printing Preferences.
5.) Paper/Quality tab is displayed, On the left in the middle under the heading Size: Click Legal.
6.) Now click apply followed by OK.
That should do the trick, remember though that if you want to print on regular A4 paper in the future, you will need to set it using the above steps. The only difference of course being selecting A4.

SOURCE: won't recognize legal size paper
I have a Brother MFC-8840Dn (full legal-size flatbed as well as document feeder). I use Windows XP Pro and a USB connection. I'm not sure my fix works with other Brother models or different Windows operating systems, but it's a way to start troubleshooting at least.
I've always been able to print legal-sized pages from word processing or spreadsheet programs and receive legal-sized faxes. But I never could make legal-sized photocopies or PDF scans. The image was always cut off at Letter size. The fix is a Brother Utility set-up setting:
*** Go to Start / All Programs / Brother / MFL-Pro Suite MFC 8840Dn / Scanner Utility. (This link may also be called something like Scanner Settings.)
*** At the "Maximum Scanning Size", select "Legal" instead of "Letter/A4".
*** Click OK and restart your PC for the new setting to take effect.
It's like magic -- I can now scan a full legal-sized PDF, whether on the flatbed or through the ADF. I also tried a compressed TIFF scan and it came out fine.
**** Make sure your software and/or Brother Control Center scanning configurations are set to Legal if that's what you want for the particular image scan. The Brother Utility setting simply enables the option of choosing the larger legal-sized paper, which then allows the full legal-sized image scan, You always have to set your software to make that choice, just as you would to make and print smaller images on Letter, A4, envelopes, etc. (NOTE: I always start scans through software on my PC, like Adobe Acrobat or PaperPort, and the Utility Setting fix is working fine. However, I just tried pressing the SCAN button on the front panel of the MFC itself with a legal-sized document on the flatbed and through the document feeder. I still got Letter-sized image scans. So, there must be another setting somewhere for starting scans directly from the MFC that I'll locate later.)
I was about to buy a different brand of scanner because of the frustration with legal-sized images. It's like having a new scanner now :) I hope this Utility Setting info helps you troubleshoot your legal-sized image problem.

Try placing some standard paper behind the vellum paper, it might assist in holding correctly while printing.
Being so thin the paper I would guess is folding up under the print head? if so look through all the printer properties, under the maintenance section there may be a "set Plattern Gap" (set to wide) or "Thick Paper Setting"
Selecting these raises the print head up to allow for thicker paper to pass through, but can also help thinner paper from folding up under the heads.
I hope one of these works for you.

To solve this problem you must check the toner or ink cartridge. Most of this arises as you have not checked the toner and the ink cartridge. The toner and the ink cartridge are designed to have a certain capacity. If the printer toner and cartridges are empty it will cause to turn your wireless printer offline. Incorrect installation of your printer can also make your printer turn offline.
