Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Expert required asap please!! MP780 I need to print a 10 page Word Publisher document to A5 size for a brochure. I hope to be using a Cannon Pixma MP780 tomorrow. My question is can I print 2 sides/pages on one horizontally using the automatic duplex funtion? Is it big enough to have a horzontal feed? (aint seen one yet!) I have tried using a ip4300 today but the pages do not all face the same way up...I dont fancy standing by the machine to do 500+ copies manually...ouch. Any clues much appreciated! Magda x

The ip4300 will do duplex but you have to in and put a check mark by the DUPLEX to get both sides to print. Also make sure you select BOOKLET PRINTING so the page layout is back to back so it can be reead like a book as you flip the pages. Hope this helps. Bud

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.

Oki - how to print booklet?


The paper you have inserted into the printer, and your page size settings have to match. You can't load A4 paper and tell it to print A5 size. This is why it is printing so small on the A4 paper. It assumes you need to trim it down to A5 size after printing.

I am printing a brochure that i created on microsoft publisher, but i can't get it to print double sided the right side up for both pages


Hello:
The Brother DCP-7030 supports manual duplex only. When choosing duplex (2-sided) printing, it will print the even-numbered pages first and prompts you to reinsert the pages in a different orientation.
To correctly print the second side of your brochure, you could do one of two things:
  1. Reverse the orientation of the paper when you reinsert if for the second side of printing.
  2. Reverse the direction of the second page in Publisher.
The first option is simple enough. When the Brother driver directs you to insert the paper for the second side, insert it in a rotated position. It should be on the same side, but rotated 180 degrees.
The second option is also easy, but if you want to edit the document in the future, it will involve in some work before being able to edit it.
  1. In Publisher, select all of the objects on the page (pressing "Ctrl" and "A" on your keyboard at the same time will accomplish this).
  2. Right-click on an object on the page.
  3. Choose "Group"
  4. Your objects are now grouped into one item.
  5. There should be a green dot at the halfway point at the top of the group. You can click and drag this dot until the object is rotated 180 degrees. Alternatively, you could go to the menu and choose "Arrange>Rotate or Flip>Rotate Left 90 degrees" twice.
  6. Now when you print, you should follow the Brother driver directions when flipping the paper.

Epson LQ -590 PRINTER PROBLEM


  1. You text page is larger than the printer page,
    margins are set wrong, or there are special
    formatting marks and/or characters at the end
    of your documents.

  2. Check default printer paper-size settings:

    START --> Printers & Faxes -> Chose printer -->
    right-click --> properties --> ....

    This sets the default settings, that are in effect every time
    an application starts up.

    Also note, that if printer settings are not listed within
    your START menu, you can find them in the Windows
    control panel. You can change what shows in the
    START menu and what doesn't by right-clicking the
    task bar.

  3. Now start your application and do the same thing under
    the file menu:

    File --> Print --> Settings ...
    File --> Printer settings ...
    File --> Page setup .... and also margins. etc...

    This sets the actual settings for this application or the
    current document. These settings over-ride the global
    default setting in item (2)
  4. To clarify, the settings in item (2) should be setup to
    reflect the way you use the printer the most often.

    The settings in item (3) reflect the actual document you
    are trying to print now.

  5. Be careful that the paper size settings (3) accurately
    reflect the paper in the machine, do not confuse
    metric sizes: A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 ....

    with English sizes: Letter, Legal,..... etc

    These do not line up exactly.

  6. Also check your document, to make sure that there
    are no extra characters at the end of your document:

    Paragraph marks, Page Brakes, Form Feeds, etc.

    Also check the paragraph settings (in Word for Windows,
    for example, to make sure that is not the cause of the
    problem.

    In word for Windows, for example, you can also go
    into tools, options and change the way your document
    is displayed, such that all formatting marks become
    visible (or click on the paragraph tool)

  7. Finally, most Windows applications offer some kind
    of print PREVIEW facility, so that you can see what
    you are going to get, before you physically print it.



I hope this solves your problem, please rate my answers.
Good luck.

How to change paper size on axerox phaser 8500


From a Windows Operating System:
  1. From the computer, open the document to be printed within an application program.
  2. Click on [File] on the toolbar, and then click [Print]. The Print window will be displayed.
  3. Click on the [Properties] button, or the [Printing Preferences] button. The Properties or Printing Preferences window will be displayed.

  10. In the Height field enter the height of the custom paper size.

Lost reverse side printing option


Yepperz

The double sided printing option relies on Status monitor working correctly. If information cannot travel from the printer to the computer, the option will be greyed out.

Make sure you have a direct connection to the computer without any hubs. If that doesn't work, try the following.

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, and click CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS.
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.
4. Right click on the Printer again, and select DELETE.

1) Click on START, SETTINGS and CONTROL PANEL.
2) Double click on the SYSTEM folder and select the Device Manager tab.
3) Click on the "+" for "Universal Serial Bus Controller"
4) Right click on "USB Printing Support" and select "Uninstall" and confirm it
5) Disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it.
