Depending on your printer, you may have to use a 3rd party software that tells your printer to print continuously. If your printer does not support printing full banners without a break in pages you might have to check into getting a printer specially designed for this. Many consumer printers are not meant for custom print jobs, they just use standard paper sizes. If you have your manual, I would refer to that first, but if nothing is mentioned in the manual chances are good that your printer does not support continuous printing.

I need to pull an 11" x 48" sheet through my printer


That will never work as the printer looks for pages that are standard sizes. If it comes across something that is larger, the printer reports a paper jam. Making banners is best done on dot matrix printers using listing paper. Otherwise on a home printer, you use the banner setting in your creation software, MS Word, MS Publisher, and you print as separate pages and stick them together or stick them on a backing sheet.

How to clear and avoid paper jams
Follow these instructions to remove and/or avoid paper jams and misfeeds in your Lexmark X3500, X4500, X4600 & X4800 Series All-In-One.

  3. Press pattlnk_10282008_1820-power-icon.gif to turn the printer back on.

Paper or specialty media misfeeds
These are possible solutions if paper or specialty media misfeeds or skews, or if multiple sheets feed or stick together.
Try one or more of the following:
Check paper condition

  • Use only new, unwrinkled paper.

Check paper loading

  • Load a smaller amount of paper into the printer.

  • Load paper with the print side facing you. (If you are not sure which side is the printable side, see the instructions that came with the paper.)

Remove each page as it is printed

  • Remove each page as it exits, and let it dry completely before stacking.

Adjust the paper guides

  • When using media less than 8.5 inches wide

  • To rest against the edges of the paper or media, making sure it does not buckle

Printing a spreadsheet


You should tell us your "Operating System, Spreadsheet Program and Printer" for us to give you a difinitive answer. Whithout this info I will attempt to give you a general answer.

In your spreadsheet program, go to "File" and select "Page Setup" and set your paper size and set your margines and Portrait/landscape option. Your spreadsheet display should show you the paper limits for printing each page. Adjust the columns to the paper size. Highlight all the columns and rows you want to print. Find the menu option to set print area and click it. Now the computer will send the paged information to the printer and print as many pages as needed to cover the print area.

Printing issue..please help


That sounds like a banner sheet, in your menus, Specifically a print menu you will find a section with reports, it should be caled banner sheet.
They may have another name for it. But disable that. Also go ont the driver on your computer and look to turn the banner sheet off.
Some call it a print acrivity sheet also.
make sure those pages are turned off on both the printer and on the print driver on the computer.

Banner printing


got to be a setup problem. in your printer program there is a page for margins, page breaks. set all for zero or disable page breaks. as far as vista goes, personally I never liked it. I am running firefox and have been for the past three years. It doesn't have all the problem back doors like windows internet explorer. rarely do I ever get patches for the program - it just don't need them.AND firefox is completely compatible with 99% of all running programs.
