Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Not printing straight

We just got this machine and it hasn't printed right from day one. When we print a document, it staggers the words and graphics and smudges, usually towards the bottom of the page. We have run out of things to try...resetting, cleaning, changing settings, etc. Any help would be appreciated!

Re: not printing straight

Please take it back and have them replace it. These machines usually come with a warranty. If you are past the warranty... You might have something stuck in the paper path. This could be hard to remove because it is a pain to take apart. I am a technician and I have a hard time taking them apart. Here is an article I wrote on fax machines and I feel that it applies to inkjet printers as well.

Hi, I am having problems printing a Word document. When I press Print, it only prints two-thirds of the page. What am I doing wrong please?

Okay, the paperfeed at the top, on the left hand side there is a grey slide, (right in the printer) to hold the paper in place. Use it to keep the paper straight! It seems that if the paper goes in straight, the whole page is printed, if it doesn't it messes up the page.

Printer does not print whole document

In 'Print Preview' look at the margins, and see if anything is too close to the edge of the paper. If it is, then set your margins further from the edge, or drag graphics further from the edge, etc.

To correct the margins that are set to close to the edge of the paper, open the document in Microsoft Word and follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that you are using the same printer driver that gave you the error in Microsoft Word Viewer.
  2. In Word, on the File menu, click Page Setup.
  3. Click OK.

    You receive a warning dialog box about the unprintable regions.
  4. Click the Fix button.
  5. Save and close the document.
You can now open and print the document in Word Viewer without receiving the error message.

Sharp AR-M237 Grayscale Copier Problem

Yes.There should be settings to enhance that in your print driver properties page.
Easiest way to access that is to open a document and click "file' then 'print and that will bring up your printer options.
Look around the print driver for ways to enhance your prints.
Most drivers have several options in graphics areas to make adjustments.
You can access printers from the controle panel and also right click the printer and select properties to access it.
There definatly are ways to adjust that.
Hope this helps you some.
