Re: Laserjet 1200 prints off the edge off the page -...
Do you have the correct paper setting, drivers, etc ... does it do that in all programs or gist in one or eg. gist for text? on all paper sizes? what if you load the max paper size sheets? it shouldn't be able to do that then. what ratio do you have in the settings? make sure it's 100% what if you make the print object smaller?

You don't need the original HP install disc. Go to the H Support site and download and install the newest one listed for your operating system. Turn the printer off and unplug it, wait 10 secs and plug it back in after installing the latest driver and software. Should work fine for you.
Have you checked the top margin setting of your print job. It should be less than 1/4 inch. If set higher it may cut off the top of the page, before it's sent to the printer. The printer will not print anything within 1/4 inch of the edge of the page, by design.
That's why they are called margins. You can't print to the edge of the page. The printer physically can't. Have you tried printing landscape? The other thing to do is set "scaling". That will cause the printer to shrink the page slightly to fit your paper size.
go to print preview, then to the margins button at the top and click it, margins will appear on the page, adjust your margins to the edges of the page, if the spreadsheet is supposed to be on one page and doesnt fit, go to page setup and shrink the size of the document (will be percentage), either way--once you have moved your margins out to the edges, you can then move them back in a little at a time if you need to in order to center your document on the page. Hope this helped.
Well, by now you may have found the solution, however, make sure that in MS WORD under File > Page Setup > A4 is selected, and if you still this prompt (error), just click on OK and proceed with printing.
The Laserjet Printers are capable to print upto 5mms from the edge of the border.
Check your application's print settings (for e.g. MS Word).
Then check the printer's properties and print settings.
If nothing works you also try re-installing the latest printer driver.
If you use MS word should check the page setup option, for paper size errrors.
If the color of your margin is red and the red ink is out then you won't se the margin line.
