Printing Large Top Margin

I am currently trying to print on normal 8 x 11 paper and when I print from any source (Test page, Note pad, Work) All of the prints start about 2 inches down the page and as a result half the print gets cut off. Ive cleared all of the rollers and I have not been duplexing these are simply straight up 1-2 page prints.

Check the header and top margin in your application. (word, Note pad, etc..)
default top margin for Microsoft word is 1".
also check the orientation of the printer output.

Can I print on both sides of the page


Here are the instructions for duplex printing.

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.

The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:

1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.

2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.

3. Specify Staple Side.

The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.

4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.

5. Click OK.

When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.

When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.

I am a teacher. We have Dell computers with windows 7 on them. Recently our school district downloaded Microsoft Office 10. Since the new microsoft office, my xerox phaser 8500 is printing strange. ...


Hi fsaltzman,

You need to check the margin settings in the print preview option, make sure you decrease the margins that are set by default and try printing a test page , this should work fine.

On the File menu, you need to click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
Here you can adjust the margins as per your convenience.

To View page margins :-
  1. You need to go on the Tools menu, select Options, and then select the View tab.
  2. Under Print and Web Layout options, select the Text boundaries check box.

The page margins appear in your document as dotted lines.


You can use these dotted lines to correct your margins so that your student's assignments are not cut off and there is no large margin as you have mentioned in your question.


You can view page margins in either Print Layout or Web Layout view only, and they do not appear on the printed page.

Hope this helps

The printer cuts off the top part of the document when printing. Is this a margin issue?


Yes, most likely your application's margin settings are incorrect. Try printing a test page - NOT from the application. If this is Windows, go to printers in control panel, right-click on the subject printer, choose Properties, then click the Print Test Page button. You should get the standard Windows printer test page with the logo at the top and all the printer specifics below. If the test page is also cut off, look around in the HP-provided software for any margin and/or page size settings that are incorrect, such as A4 paper when it should really be Letter size.

Power went off when I tried to print


Would be helpful to know which operating system you are using and whether there where any warning light flashing. For starters review the following solutions.
Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs

Inner Cover was open when you started printing.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer. The printer resumes printing.

Inner Cover was opened while printing is in progress.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer.

A page of print data being sent at the time of the error will be erased, so print that page again.

The printer has been printing continuously over a long period.

If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head may overheat. To protect the Print Head, the printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.

In this case, interrupt your print session at a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

Additionally, if the printer has been printing graphics or photos with intense colors continuously over a period of time, the printer may stop printing to protect the Print Head. In this case, printing will not resume automatically. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

i_expl.gif Caution

The Print Head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the printer. Never touch the Print Head or nearby components.

Out of paper.

Make sure that paper is loaded in the selected paper source.

Reload paper if no paper is found in the selected paper source (Auto Sheet Feeder or the Cassette).

If the same paper is loaded in the other paper source, you can switch the paper source with the Paper Feed Switch or the printer driver to continue printing.

If both paper sources have run out of paper, confirm the selected paper source and load paper there.

Printing documents with plenty of photographs or illustrations.

When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer or the computer is processing data. Printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to process, during which the printer may appear to have stopped operating.

In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the printer may pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.

i_note.gif Note

If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing may pause to allow the ink to dry.

Huge Margin with Kyocera FS 1000+


If the FS-1000 prints too far down the page or leave too much top margin or leaves a gap at the top of the page etc (<- for google searches). This is a problem with the felt pads on the three solenoids/clutch electro magnets that are under the right panel (2 under the engine/button board, 1 under the inner plastic cover, sometimes 4 in total on other kyocera printers). They get compressed over time meaning the metal leavers come into contact with the solenoid meaning they are released too slowly. Simply replace the felt pads with .5mm cardboard or another non-sticky non-metallic material. Too thick and it prints too far up the page.

Your problem seems to be due to worn out of rollers. Try a less glossy paper and you can find the difference.
