Half page printing

Since 2 day's all my printouts are only a half page. A4 paper, the left side over the long side of the paper is alway's white, the other half (right side) the printing is there. Copying or printing is no mather, all copies are half.
I changed the drumcassete for a brandnew one, it did not help.
Please advise.
Regards,
Mat

    Same problem . Mine is no print on right side.

  • LK77 Jan 12, 2009

    The pages are coming out blank on the left side - all cartridges and the drum have been replaced. I noticed another similar post that mentioned that the carousel axel could be shifted or off slightly, but it offers no solutions on how to fix a carousel that may be off.

  • margaretjack Jan 14, 2009

    where is the carousel located and is it easy to re-shifted?

  • m_janssen36 Jan 16, 2009

    I discovered the the laserbeam disapears half way to expose the drum. That's why the paper gets it's image half. The laserbeam is shaded by the diaphagm. I think it means the laser or the rotating mirror is out of position.
    Is there somebody who knows how ti position this again.

I'm sure you know this already, but I will mention it. Ensure that your document margins are set correctly in the page setup area.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I cannot print a whole A4 page although the printer is set to A4 - ie labels only print one column


You can do several tests to understand where the problem is.1. Try to print a test page - Go to Printer Devices - Right click your printer and select Properties - Click Print Test Page button like on the picture below
11_29_2011_9_40_40_pm.jpgIf the result is still like your description, you are facing hardware problem like defective toner cassette or drum.2. Try printing from different sources - print a page from your browser like Internet Explorer - print a page from your Office Application like MS Office or OpenOffice - print from notepad - print from Image viewer application
If your printer prints only the left half of the page - this is definitely hardware problem. If you receive different results from different sources, find out wich one of them does the described printout and try to discover the setting that causes the problem and restore it.Sometimes when we talk about MS Office this problem is caused by Print Area setting. You can just Clear this Print Area from Page Layout like on the picture below.
I hope this was useful information for you!11_29_2011_9_56_30_pm.jpg

I have a canon mp 240 and it Prints fine if you only need half of the document. It cuts everything in half! Like it reads the header wrong or blows up the words or make extra spaces. How can I get it to...


I thought maybe you have the paper size set to Landscape rather than Portrait. If not, then you might look at:

http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp240#ServiceAndSupport

I did some searching on that site and it yielded the hlep below which may give you some help.


Issue: How do I set my printer so my printout fits the paper size I am using?
Solution: Use the recommended Print Area MP240

Printing Area title-bar.gif To ensure the best print quality, the machine allows a margin along each edge of media. The actual printable area will be the area inside these margins.
Recommended printing area (dark blue):
Canon recommends that you print within this area. (o_darkblue13.jpg)
Printable area (light blue):
The area where it is possible to print. (o_lightblue14.jpg)
However, printing in this area can affect the print quality or the paper feed precision.

o_area15.jpg i_note.gif Note
Borderless Printing
By selecting the Borderless Printing option, you can make prints with no margins.
bullet_s.gif When performing Borderless Printing, slight cropping may occur at the edges since the printed image is enlarged to fill the whole page.
bullet_s.gif For Borderless Printing, use the following paper.
- Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" GP-501
- Photo Paper Glossy GP-502
- Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss SG-201
- Photo Paper Pro Platinum PT-101
- Photo Paper Plus Glossy II PP-201
-Photo Paper Pro II PR-201
- Matte Photo Paper MP-101
Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce printing quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.
Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only for test printing. You can perform Borderless Printing on plain paper only when printing from your computer.
bullet_s.gif Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the top and bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.

When I print the page comes out half way then jams. if I open the back door on printer page comes out but only half is printed ok rest is messy


This is the infamous exit sensor problem. Watch this video on YouTube: 5fJHykzkfww

You can try to clean it but that probably will not work. Go to eBay and get the part for about $10. The video shows you how to make the repair in about 15 minutes.

Lines down both the left side of the printouts.


good day,

this usually occurs when you print large volume of copies of documents that goes beyond the printable area of the paper, some powders stick in the roller of your printer hence making the gray streak.

you can check if the rollers have accumulated some powder, if so, have the rollers cleaned.

i hope this will help.
