Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Picture isgood quality but only prints not quite one half with a jagged edge
If its a laser jet printer your ink jets are probably blocked. This will occur if the printer has not been used for a while. Some printers have a inkjet cleaning option, if not you may have to try to clean tham using a q-tip and a cleaning solution.
If its a toner printer the issue could be the developer solution on one side of the developer unit, or else a damaged imaging/drum unit.

Well lets start with DISREGARD ALL THE ABOVE BULL in the above brainless clarification request first noted. Here's a little good advice for you from a 14 year veteran printer tech.
Lets start with the cheapest and easiest moving to the more difficult or more expensive. Your problem can be caused by a few differnt things.
Print a configuration page (on the printer menu press check button, scroll to info menu, press check, scroll to print configuration, press check. Once you have the look for the page count on the page.
Try fresh good paper from a sealed ****. If your paper has picked up moisture this will show up as light or uneven print.
Next if the printer is over 100K page count, replace the transfer roller (foam roller inside printer under the toner cartridge). Lets try cleaning it first if your under 100K or to see if it improves at all. Any improvement will verify the transfer roller as bad. Review the photo below as it shows the transfer roller end inside the printer. The screwdriver is showing where the release white clips are (two). Press the tabs and lift the left side. The right will come out of the hole socket on its own but note where the hole on the right is for replacement. Try not handling the roller with your bare hands any more than you must as oil from your hands can cause slight imaging defects if your hands are sweaty or damp.
Using a clean rag (like t-shirt material) dampened (not soaking) with 99% alcohol (not 70%) lets clean the roller. Gently but firmly scrub the talc and paper dust buil-up from the roller. Once you've removed the build up it should return to a dark grey color. Let the 99% alcohol dry (5 minutes or so)and reinstall.
Try printing again. If the problem is solved your done. If not and it has improved, you will need a new transfer roller. They are available on Ebay much cheaper than from a dealer. The part number to search for is RM1-0343. Here's a link to ebay for one at around $20.00 landed.
If the problem is the same, your problem is more than likely a dirty laser scanner lense. You'll need to remove the covers from the printer to accomplish this. The laser scanner can be located under the top cover. It's the larger black box on the top side of the printer. Once the scanner has been located, remove the top cover. DO NOT TOUCH THE MULTI SIDED SPINNING MIRROR TO THE REAR OF THE SCANNER. You will be cleaning the clear lenses and mirror towards the front. You clean this gently with a CLEAN and DRY Q-tip. Use a few Q-tips rather than re-applying a dirty one. Heck they are cheap!
Re-assemble the printer and try printing again. One of the steps above should resolve your issue. I am enclosing a link to a free service manual for your printer to help you through the disassembly and in the rare case that your issue remains.
Hope this helps you a lot more than the first response you receved. If so rate me with a FIXYA!

SOURCE: Edge to edge print problem
The Fargo DTC550 will not be able to print an "over the edge" card. Any Direct To Card printers will have a white line on the edges. There are several printers that are able to print covering the entire card, those printers are called Reverse Transfer or Fargo's High Definition Printers. One printer that I do recommend is the Fargo HDP5000, you can read more about it at: http://printers.idcardgroup.com/productdetails.aspx?item=hdp5000

You will need to set margins for your documents. As well as cross verify the paper size in the printer with the paper size of your documents on the computer.
To check the margins in Word 2007 document: Click on the Tab Page Layout Click on Margins and set it to Normal or Narrow Click on Size to choose your paper size (this should be the same as the one your printer uses)
An alternate method is to go to File menu and choose Print Preview under Print Modify the margins and paper size and look at the Preview.
For pdf documents make sure your Page Scaling is selected to 'Shrink to Printable Area'
To change/check paper size for printer from the computer Go to Control Panel > Printers Right click on your printer model and choose Properties. Go to the Page Setup tab Choose the paper size of the paper inserted in your printer.
Hope this helps.
