Light print and leaves a blank stripe

I have a hL5040 that leaves a blank stripe about 1/3 the way in frim the left margin (about 3 in from paper edge). Have changed the toner unit, no better. Also print in light, should be a little darker than it is. Pix (schematics in particular are light). Any Ideas??? Thanks Steve Tri State Paging LLC

Try the blue corona wire on top of the drum unit. If it is not right back to the left it will leave a line on every page.

Hi,
The default paper selection/ size in MS Word is 'letter'. you may have designed the document on letter size and while printing you have A4 size paper in the printer.
So, Make sure that you design the document on the same paper size (such as A4, which is commonly used). Secondly, while printing don't print the document directly. From the Print dialogue option choose the exact paper size and un-check (de-select) any option of paper resizing (if available). You will have the documents printed exactly as designed.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

My printer -X1185 prints the page with a 3 inch blank area on the left side and some of the right side printing is off the page. This is typical in my e mail page, and even if I center the letter on...


Web site designers create Web pages for display on a monitor, not for users to print on 8.5- x 11-inch pieces of paper. This becomes obvious the first time you try to print a Web page. Content you need may get chopped off by the right printer margin, whereas content you don’t need, such as the site’s copyright information, will print on its own sheet of paper. Fortunately, you can avoid such problems with a little foresight.

Before printing any Web page, open Internet Explorer’s File menu and select Print Preview. The current Web page will appear on-screen exactly as it will print on paper. Scan the preview carefully. If it appears that some content is chopped off by the right margin, click the Page Setup button located directly to the right of the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. In the resulting Page Setup dialog box, adjust the left and right margins so that each is set to 0.25 inches. The extra inch of space you gain by resetting the margins should provide just enough room to accommodate all of the content on most sites. Click OK to save the changes and return to the Print Preview window.

Next, scan the preview to determine which pages contain the content you want to print. Take note of those pages and click the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. Locate the Print Range heading and select the Pages option. Type the number of the first page you want to print in the From field and type the number of the last page you want to print in the To field. For instance, if you want to print just the first three pages of a Web page’s content, type 1 in the From field and type 3 in the To field. If your browser doesn’t have To and From fields, type the range of pages (such as 1-3) in the corresponding field. Make sure your printer has paper and click Print.

Just had a paper jam, printing now coming out with blank stripes vertically on paper about 1 inch apart, help. my name is chris


I think extra ink make stripes. to remove those stripes follow the instruction:
1.open the top cover of your printer
2.find out a sponge that are in the left side of the printer bottom.
3.put off it and wash it well by using cold water. And fit it again. Then move the head left from right. Now put a soft tissue upon the printer head clining unit, then move the head again from left to right sothat printer head can reduce from ink. then move the head again and put off the tissue. Then on your printer your printer remain work.
thank you.

HP 2840 will not print on 3 inches of left side of page


Take the toner cartridge out, shake it back and forth, and turn it around in a circle a few time. Put it back in the priter, and print. Order a new toner cartridge.

If this is an inkjet printer, ignore this response.

My sony dpp-fp55 leave 2/3 of the paper white while printing


They are thinking the cartridges are dirty or the heads. I am thinking it is a setting for the printer or an actual glitch in the printing program. If you have successfully printed on this printer before, then very carefully go through the settings, looking for print margins settings specifically. This sounds simple but you might want to make sure your paper trays are adjusted correctly.

Margin problem


Problem---Printer prints email on the very edge of the paper and leaves off the first 3 letters of every word down the edge of that margin. If you have Windows Live Mail forget trying to fix it from there. Clicking File will not give you the page setup option you are looking for. Go to the bottom of the screen, click "all programs", look for and click "Internet Explorer", click File, click "page setup". A screen comes up in which you can change the margins. The left margin is probably set on .25. Change it to .75. Okay. Go back and run a test email.
