Sides of copies are cut off, and are only 5.5 inches wide

When I try to copy an 8.5 X 11 original, the copies are only 5.5 inches wide, but 11 inches long. The 3 inches on the right side of the page are cut off. Thanks, Lee

    right side of copes are cut off @ 100 %. How do I adjust paper size? I only use 81/2 x11 and have not had a problem. there is no width adjustment or give on either side where you load the paper.?

    I understand leap 27's suggestion... however, I think the tab in question is loose on my machine. I just took the back encasing off to see if fitting it would become obvious. Not. It can come out of the casing completely.


    Any ideas how to fix?


    Much thanks!

The answer given does not explain enough. The paper feed tray, when inserted and in place and is set for 8 !/2 by 11 paper has an adjustment for paper size. You can slide it over for smaller width paper. That part that slides rests against a tab in the back that senses the position of the paper size adjustment slider. Pull the paper tray out and latch onto that tab and pull it up. You should hear a click. Put the paper tray back into place and you should get the full wide copied. I could find nothing on this in the owner's manual.

    Seven years later and you still helped some one with this problem. You nailed it, exactly! Problem was that my tab was completely dislodged and it took me a while to figure out how to put it back in place. But it worked! THANKS!

2010/3010 when using adf getting distorted image 1 inch from left margin all the way down the page about 1/8 wide 2 machines doing it. Cleaned rollers didn't help These are the minolta di2010/3010


If you are only getting the issue when you use the doc feeder and not when copying on the glass there is an issue with the **** glass that sits on the side of the original glass. try cleaning both sides of the **** glass , also it could be an issue with the feed system of the document feeder if so then you would need to get an engineer to look at the feeder

I have a Canon PC 940. The copies are coming out with black lines ( 1/2 inch wide ) on the sides of the paper. Do I need to get the copier cleaned? Thank you.


Could be optics needing to be cleaned. First I would rule out the toner cartridge. If you have a spare swap it out or remove your current cartridge, turn it over and slide open the "gate" that covers the drum cyclinder. The drum should be clean all the way across it's surface. If you see toner on each end then that is where your dark sides are coming from. If the drum is clean then most likely you have dust building up on the optics mirrors. One test for this is to manually lighten the exposure control on the operation panel and then recheck your copy quality. This may cause the rest of the copy to be light but if the dark sides goes away then your optics are dirty.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What causes a line down the middle of copied pages


There is something on your scan glass. My guess is you are getting the line on your copies when you run the original through the document feeder. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on.
