Question about HP PhotoSmart C4480 All-in-One Printer InkJet

HP C4480 Won't Print Borderless

I have a new C4480 and Mac 8 core Mac pro running OSX 10.5.5.  When I print 4 x 6 pictures in iPhoto or the HP picture printing software it ONLY prints with a tab (white border on the side).  Even when I select Borderless printing 4 x 6 in the printer set up window this still happens.  Once every 10 pictures or so it will print correctly; borderless with no tab.
Reinstalled the drivers and software and still have this problem.  It doesn't print the picture correctly (perspective wise) with a border, but actually cuts the image off and adds the border.  So it is like the printing paper is not loading correctly, but I know it is put in properly.

Any help will be most appreciated.

I have a canon mp 240 and it Prints fine if you only need half of the document. It cuts everything in half! Like it reads the header wrong or blows up the words or make extra spaces. How can I get it to...


I thought maybe you have the paper size set to Landscape rather than Portrait. If not, then you might look at:

http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp240#ServiceAndSupport

I did some searching on that site and it yielded the hlep below which may give you some help.


Issue: How do I set my printer so my printout fits the paper size I am using?
Solution: Use the recommended Print Area MP240

Printing Area title-bar.gif To ensure the best print quality, the machine allows a margin along each edge of media. The actual printable area will be the area inside these margins.
Recommended printing area (dark blue):
Canon recommends that you print within this area. (o_darkblue13.jpg)
Printable area (light blue):
The area where it is possible to print. (o_lightblue14.jpg)
However, printing in this area can affect the print quality or the paper feed precision.

o_area15.jpg i_note.gif Note
Borderless Printing
By selecting the Borderless Printing option, you can make prints with no margins.
bullet_s.gif When performing Borderless Printing, slight cropping may occur at the edges since the printed image is enlarged to fill the whole page.
bullet_s.gif For Borderless Printing, use the following paper.
- Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" GP-501
- Photo Paper Glossy GP-502
- Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss SG-201
- Photo Paper Pro Platinum PT-101
- Photo Paper Plus Glossy II PP-201
-Photo Paper Pro II PR-201
- Matte Photo Paper MP-101
Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce printing quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.
Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only for test printing. You can perform Borderless Printing on plain paper only when printing from your computer.
bullet_s.gif Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the top and bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.

When using canon pro 9000 with photoshop on a MAC Snow Leopard computer, I cannot print borderless pictures. How can I fix this problem


Preserve your memories forever with borderless printed photographs--while saving money and time by printing from the comfort of your own home. Some printers do not have the option of printing borderless prints, so make sure your printer supports borderless printing before beginning this project.

  • Download your digital photo to your computer from a digital cameramag-glass_10x10.gif, email or the Internet. Save the photo to your hard drive to a folder that you can find later such as "Pictures."
  • Step 2Open your digital photo in a photo-viewing software. Click "Print" from your menu. Go to your printer properties to change your printer's "Page Setup." Access "Properties" through the "Preferences" or "Options" link in your "Print" dialog box. Many software programs have a default margin or border for photos; to print borderless photos, you'll have to remove the default margin.

    Getting a borderless print


    Try this if that helps:

    Using iPhoto to create borderless prints To use iPhoto to create borderless prints, please follow all of the steps below:
    1. While logged in as an Administrator, install the latest Canon printer drivers onto your computer (with Mac OS X v10.2 or later as the operating system) and select the appropriate printer as the default.

    2. Launch iPhoto.

    3. From iPhoto, select and open the image you wish to print. (Please refer to the Apple web site for instructions on how to use iPhoto.)

    4. When you are ready to make a print, select from the Menu Bar 'File: Page Setup'.

    5. The Page Setup dialog will appear.

    6. Select the following settings:

      1. Settings: Page Attribute
      2. Format for: <Select the Canon printer you wish to use>
      3. Paper Size: 4x6 (borderless)
      4. Orientation: <Select the matching orientation>
      5. Scale: <Select the appropriate scale>

    7. Select 'OK' and the Page Setup dialog will close.

    8. From iPhoto, from within the Constrain section of the browser window, select from the pull-down menu (i.e., the button directly above the Constrain label) either '4x6' or '4x6 Portrait'. Then, using your mouse cursor, mouse-over the image and when the Cross-Hairs are over the upper left-hand corner of the portion of the image you wish to print, click and drag from the left to the right in a downwardly diagonal motion, releasing the click at the end of the image selection.

    9. Click the 'Crop' button.

    10. From the Menu Bar, select 'File: Print', select your options, then select 'Print'.

    11. This selection, revealed in the iPhoto window will now print as a borderless, 4x6 print.

    EPSON 1800 PROBLEMS WITH NEW IMAC


    While you may have installed it, the generic driver may be selected. Here are all the steps to get you back up.

    To remove any previous Epson printer driver files and get a good working install of the latest download for the Intel Duo Core, do the following:
    REMOVE FILES
    1. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
    2. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
    3. Double click on the PRINTERS folder.
    4. Drag the EPSON folder to the trash can.
    5. Close any open windows.
    6. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
    7. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
    8. Double click on the RECEIPTS folder.
    9. Delete any "Epson" receipts. Close back to desktop.
    10. Open the OS X "Printer Setup Utility".
    11. Select the "Printer Setup Utility" menu at the top of your screen and click "Reset Printing System...". Confirm resetting.
    12. Close all open windows and restart your computer.
    DOWNLOAD
    If you have not done so already, use the following steps to obtain the download for the new Intel Duo Core driver:
    1. Go to http://support.epson.com
    2. Select Printers then Inkjet then your printer model.
    3. Under "Drivers and Downloads" select Macintosh.
    4. Download only the driver marked for the Intel Duo Core system.
    Printer Driver v3.0aAs
    Intel-based Macs with OS X (v10.4.4 or later)
    epson11769.dmg - 12.4MB - posted on 02/06/06
    Installation instructions:
    1. Double-click on the "epson11769.dmg" file and follow prompts to create an "epson11769_r1800_printer_driver_30aas" disk image on your desktop.
    2. Open the disk image. Double-click the "SPR1800Series 30a" installer icon to begin the installation.
    3. Follow prompts to complete installation. Restart Mac once the install is complete.
    Do the following to add the printer once the new downloadable Intel Duo Core driver has been downloaded and installed properly:
    1. Connect printer.
    2. Open Printer Setup Utility.
    3. Click ADD.
    4. Ensure you are on the Default Browser window.
    5. Highlight printer as it appears under Printer Name.
    6. For "Print Using" select "Epson Stylus R1800" if this automatically appears on the list. If this does not appear, select OTHER (not "Epson" - which links you to GIMP drivers, which we don't recommend or support). NOTE: if you are using a firewire connection, the printer name may appear as a letter only - ie "E" for "Epson". This is normal.
    7. A new window opens where you can Browse to the hard drive location of:
    HD > Library > Printers > Epson > Inkjet Printers
    (This location contains all the Intel Duo Core Epson driver plugins, be they resident or downloaded.)
    8. Highlight/Select the plugin for your printer model in the Inkjet Printers folder, then click OPEN.
    9. Use the up/down arrows at the end of "Print Using" again to (re)select the printer's name, which will now appear at the TOP of the "Print Using" list.
    10. Click ADD. The new downloaded driver will now be added on the list.
    11. If there are other printers on the list, ensure the Epson is made default before testing.
    When you are working with a printer model which supports borderless and/or roll paper printing options, you will be able to select these options in the program you are printing from as you set up your print job.
    1. Once you have an image or file open, go to File > Page Setup.
    2. For "Format For" select the Epson printer name (rather than "Any Printer").
    3. Select the appropriate Paper Size. If your printer supports different layout features, each paper size will have several different options. For example, the 4x6 paper size will have an arrow pointing right which offers choices of 4x6 Borderless, 4x6 Standard-Minimize Margins, etc. Pick the paper type plus layout/margin option you want to use here.
    4. Click OK on Page Setup. You are now ready to print.

    I cannot get HP C6200 all in one printer to print on 10x15 photo paper. Just says out of paper or prints on A4 if paper in main tray. Have followed all instructions! Wendy Angus


    Sorry - I didn't read this closely enough. You will not be able to print on 10x15 paper as the paper type is not supported by your printer.

    This is a list from the specs of the supported paper sizes;

    Supported paper sizes Letter, legal, executive, No. 10 envelopes, cards, borderless photo (4 x 6 in, 5 x 7 in, 8 x 10 in), borderless panorama (4 x 10 in, 4 x 11 in, 4 x 12 in)
