    hi gerry ; tks for your rapid response

    seems I wasn't very clear !!!
    I put one sheet of paper in the hopper for a one page document ; it proceeds to print every line twice ,which is why it only half a page fits on the sheet ; looks like I stutter !!!

    after posting , did what you suggested and stripped and cleaned ; no change

    tried printing from word pad , just a few lines ...same

    tried another suggested driver ...same

    tried another computer ...same

    tried a self test with the printer unhooked from a computer , prints correctly !!

    maybe it just doesn't like my w2k when I try to print from my documents

    as they say where I live , m'aidez m'aidez

    if I don't give up trying to fix this soon , my wife is going to go find herself a toyboy :)

Very funny. There are a number of things you can try. Start by checking for very small debris in paper feeder area and inside unit, especially around printhead carriages. Clean your unit thoroughly, including rollers and run allignment checks. Also check all printer settings for normality. Only load small amounts of paper at one time as this helps to avoid pressure on feeder rollers, and may alleviate 2 sheet feeding.

Hello sir, how to take print on A4 page? please help me


Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
  • Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menumag-glass_10x10.gif next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
  • Step 6.Press "Print" to print the photograph.

    Canon Manual 520a .


    Depending on the type of printer you have, you might be able to print multiple "digital" pages ("N-UP" is one way of describing it) per physical page.
    Basically that scales the output (makes it smaller) so that you can get more than one page per sheet of paper. The only drawback is that it might end up being too small to read.
    Not every printer has this feature, however. You can definitely use the "Print Preview" function to show you how many physical pages will be output before you actually print. That should let you know how many pages the manual will really use when it comes time to print.
    Good Luck!

    Older Xerox 5334 printing on 1/2 page on every other sheet.


    It is 99% of the time the print cartridge. If it is every other sheet on A4 then it is this.

    Problem printing multiple pages on one sheet!


    This is not the fault of the printer but the fault of word.

    The way I did it successfully was as follow:
    File > Page Setup > Layout = Landscape (sounds like you have already done this)

    In the print dialoge, instead of OK, click Properties. On the layout tab, select landscape and below that select pages per sheet = 4 and then click ok... Then click OK to print.
