Question about Olympus P 400 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Sizing the photo

When I set up my photo to be a 5X7 or and 8X10 or whatever, and then I print it, the size is always altered. I've tried making the canvas be the size of the paper, then making the image the desired proportions but it still alters the size. How can I get the P 400 to print the actual size of the photo?

Re: Sizing the photo

Unfortunately, the P400 seems to have its own set of sizes. The printer will give a print close to the size selected. (This is really noticeable with the perferated psper.) The situation is no different with the P440.

Only printing 1/2 the image of the selected photo, I have tried changing the printer cartridge but still only prints 1/2 the selected image, any ideas why this is happening?

I am not familiar with that particular printer, but it could be as simple as making sure you have the entire picture selected..but it sounds more like the cartridge is either clogged or there is a setting that needs changed...try aligning the cartridge(s) and printing a test page. (that part is usually under a maintenance or troubleshooting type section) if that turns out fine, then there may be a setting thats off...look at your print may have a separate section just for printing photos...even if you don't, look at your page setup.. look specifically at the margin settings...that might be where the problem can always play with the margin settings- i would recommend saving them under a custom setting if you want to keep them, instead of default though...that way you have your regular settings for general printing... and do a "print preview"...that might be a good idea anyway, so you wont have to waste ink and paper trying to get your stuff to turn out how you want it (plus that will show you if margins are set right)...for that, there should be a checkmark box you can select to always do print previews...
also, look to see if you have a selection or checkmark box that says "fit to page" or where you can select how many copies you can print per page..this can be used for everyday printing, as well as for photos...
you may even see a spot where you can select the size of photo to print...usually you can pick to print "wallet size or 4x6, ete." and how many to print on a single page...maybe even multiple sizes per page...these are several options for you to look at...hope it helps :)

Uneven borders how do i fix it

If you are trying to do this by setting borders manually you are probably running into the Canon's minefield of "minimal printed borders" which throw off calculations. The manual setting is primarily for off-setting images rather than for perfectly centered images.
For a centered image, the borders are automatically set by the relationship of image sizing to paper size, with "center image" checked and other sizing options unchecked. This has worked perfectly in the three Canon printers I've owned, whereas trying to set even borders manually was always off a bit and a real pain.
If you want the same border width for all sides, the aspect ratio of the paper and image will have to be different, strangely enough, for all but square images. For 1" borders all around on 10x15 paper, e.g., your 2:3 AR image will have to be cropped and sized to 8X13" dimensions.Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

I need to make copies of my little brothers highschool football pics to send into the coaches at colleges, i try to scan the image of a 5x7 to 4x6 photo paper but it ends up cutting the image in half...

The images need to be re-sized. It's important when re-sizing to keep aspect proportions since a 5x7 print is a vertical or portrait print and a 4x6 is a horizontal or landscape print. Therefore, when re-sizing if you check off keep aspect ratio, you may get either 4" tall or 6" wide but not both or you'll stretch the picture distorting it. Picasa by Google is a good and easy to use photo editing program that should suit your needs and is a free download. Picasa Best of luck with your project and please post back with any other questions.

Paper too narrow error

Have it save-to-image instead of print-to-paper. That should make it happier.

You can then print it out later, re-sizing it to fit the paper you have to print on.

Mismatch paper size error

Click on Print, then Properties, then features.
About half way down there is a drop down box under sizing options.
Click on custom
Create a name, and put your width and height in.
Click Save and then OK
Completely X out of the print options.
Then Click
File, print
on the bottom of that screen there should be a scale to paper size drop down box. Scroll to the bottom and your saved name and dimensions should be there.

You will have to setup each individual sized template ones and then just scale to fit each time. Hope this helps

Printer problem

From the Printers & Faxes window, check in the i9950 Printing Preferences, Page Setup tab, for the following settings:

Page Size and Printer Paper Size are both set for the same size (both A4 or both A3).
Printing Type is set for Normal-size Printing

The graphic on the left should now show A4 (or A3) and Normal-size Printing in the legend.

Once that is set, verify from the application you're printing from that these settings are not being changed by the application (Preferences button in the print dialog box).
