Question about Epson Stylus 1400 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Print out is misaligned - but only in one small area

When i do an A4 or A3 print out there is one small section an inch in from the left hand side of the page where there is a blip (which forms a misaligned line down the length of the page) - it's almost like it skips (like a scratch on a record) but i can't see any foreign objects in the machine - after every few print both red lights flash erratically on the front too...
any ideas?!?!

It's more likely to be some dirt or soiling on the calibration strip which runs along the back of the printer and through the back of the printhead..

Look for a bit of clear plastic which has lots of little black lines on it... this is the calibration strip... Chances are you'll find a little dust or ink on it...

Whatever you do, DO NOT pull on this... Just gently clean it with some tissue and a lint free cloth but make sure you don't dislodge it.

Printing on custom paper sizes I can not set my a3 printer to print any longer than 42cm x 29.7cm A3, It should be able to print 29.7x 84cm half of a2


The following are the max printable areas for the Canon i9950.
A3+, A3, Ledger, B4, A4, B5, A5, 5" x 7", 4" x 6" Size
Printable Area (width x height)
A3+ (13" x 19")
322.2 x 475.0 mm / 12.7 x 18.7 in
A3
290.2 x 412.0 mm / 11.4 x 16.2 in
Ledger (11" x 17")
272.6 x 423.8 mm / 10.7 x 16.7 in
B4
250.2 x 356.0 mm / 9.9 x 14.0 in
A4
203.2 x 289.0 mm / 8.0 x 11.4 in
B5
175.2 x 249.0 mm / 6.9 x 9.8 in
A5
141.2 x 202.0 mm / 5.6 x 7.9 in
5" x 7" / 127.0 x 177.8 mm
120.2 x 169.8 mm / 4.7 x 6.7 in
4" x 6" / 101.6 x 152.4 mm
94.8 x 144.4 mm / 3.7 x 5.7 in


Borderless printing will allow you to print up to the full size of the paper but no larger than 297 x 420mm for A3 and 330 x 482 mm for A3+.

It is not possible to print on A2 paper.

Cannot fill a3 sheet


Have you set up the page as A3? If so, should be ok if you set the printer paper size to A3. If you set up the page on A4 you will need to tell the the printer to 'scale to A3' and it's best to say you want to preview before printing

Printer problem


From the Printers & Faxes window, check in the i9950 Printing Preferences, Page Setup tab, for the following settings:

Page Size and Printer Paper Size are both set for the same size (both A4 or both A3).
Printing Type is set for Normal-size Printing

The graphic on the left should now show A4 (or A3) and Normal-size Printing in the legend.

Once that is set, verify from the application you're printing from that these settings are not being changed by the application (Preferences button in the print dialog box).

Printing a booklet on WorkCentre 7345 , need help argent !!!


OK, same problem, I've gotten through the solution. I can print and have the first page and last page on one side of the large sheet and the two inside pages on the other side, so that is foldable into a booklet.
I start with a 4 page (US letter sized) document I wish to print as a booklet on tabloid paper.
In the (page layout or editing program's) print dialogue, I've said print all pages, set it at 1 page per sheet, then clicked the printer properties button to open the Xerox Workcenter 7345PS option dialogue.
In the Xerox dialog on the "Paper/Output" tab, selected the larger (Tabloid, 11x17" in my case) paper size, selected 2-Sided Print. Then I select the "Layout/Watermark" tab and clicked the Booklet Layout radio button, chose "Landscape" for the Page Layout Option. Note: I saved these settings as "Tabloid Booklet" by clicking the down-arrow to the right of "Driver Defaults" so that I could select them and not have to dial in every one of the settings whilst experimenting.
