Perforation when I print

When I print any document, regardless of size, on every page it makes a perforation down the entire page. I'm not sure how to make it stop doing this. It might be nice if I wanted to tear off half of the paper, but I would appreciate any help that you could offer. Thanks.

    My Xerox CopyCentre C20 doesn't always print the entire page, as if it is only scanning part of the page. It happens when the original is placed on the glass surface as well as when the original is sent...

    the paper size detector may not detect the original size of the document check the paper tray indicator light on the panel and make sure the direction is the same with the original document onthe glass

    How do I change print sixe on Deskjet 722c?

    usually you can change the print size in the print preview page setup menu.

    in this menu you can scale your document down changing the print size.

    otherwise, you can take your file in word or any document editing software and select all and change the font size for your entire document. These are two options for you which will change the print size on your printer.

    How to print with the legal paper?

    follw the given step and check- 
    1-Before printing your document, be sure the page size is set to legal paper. Go to "File> Page Setup" and then click on the "Paper Size" tab. Select "Legal" from the drop-down menu.
    2-Go to the printer and take out the paper tray. Remove the letter size paper.
    3-Insert about one half of the package of legal size paper into the tray, depending on the depth of your tray. Larger printers can accept an entire package, while smaller ones cannot.
    4-Make sure that the paper goes underneath the metal clips located at both the front and back of the tray.
    5-For printers that don't have a tray, you'll have to manually feed the legal size paper. Locate the paper feed either on the front or rear of the printer.
    6-Put a few sheets of legal size paper into the paper feed. The paper should be placed as close to the rubber spindles as possible. These spindles will draw the paper into the machine and feed it through the printer.
    7-Print a test page.

    After every page I print, the green light goes out, and I have to press online to get it to continue printing.

    Thats ..paper size mismatch, check the paper size settings of your printer in printer properties is the same as what document or document program is set to under page size of the document you wish to print, if these dont match the printer goes offline so you can put in what it's been told is the right size paper or press online to force it to print in your case check paper size in both locations and you should be right, there are other things but 99% of the time..thats ya baby;)

    Printer will not print a wordperfect document.

    Try a test page when you set up your printer. If that works,
    Try going to File, page setup and choosing a paper size and type there that matches the new printer. Make sure your printer is the default one or that you pick it in the drop down menu on the print menu after you choose print. .
    Make sure your paper matches the document's paper

    Can't print custom envelope on HP Photosmart 7280

    OK, to make this clearer, I had the same problem on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.

    My Fix, combining several others:

    1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
    2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
    3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
    4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
    5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.

    Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list

    Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.

    If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.

    When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!
