My printer Lipi 2280+ printing properly with 15*12 and fanfold 8.5*12 paper,but when i am using paper width slighly smaller than it less than 8.5 width printer gives paper with error>kindly suggest


You see the "Paper Width Error" on the 2280+ because the print job being recived by the pritner is wider than the physical paper which will cause the pritner to print on the platten, in order to rectify the problem.

  1. Ensure the print job on the system is less than 8.5 inches wider
  2. Perhaps move the paper in the tractors to the right
  3. Disabling the Paper Width Sensor will clear the error but may cause the printer to print on the Platten which may reduce print head life, the Paper Width Sensor can be disabled in the following way;
    Start with the printer Powered OFF
    Hold Down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON keep ONLINE held down until you see ASCII80 ASCII136 on the top line of the display
    Press the button under NEXT repeatedly until you see APW on the top line of the display
    Press the button under APW
    Set APW = OFF

    This will disable the APW sensor and you will not see the Paper Width Error

The printer only prints half a page then moves to next page and a


Before printing, the printer checks the paper size. If the paper edge guide is positioned incorrectly, the paper may be fed at an angle. If this happens, the bottom of the paper is therefore at an angle and not perpendicular with the paper feed rollers. This can result in the paper sensor not recognising the real page width as it can only detect a certain amount of the bottom of the paper sheet which is nearest to it.

If only part of the width of the paper is detected, the printer considers that the paper width is less than it actually is. To avoid printing on internal parts of the printer such as paper feed rollers, the printer automatically cuts the image to fit the detected paper width As this phenomenon depends on the paper feeding condition, it can be random.
Reload the paper and make sure it is loaded correctly. All the way to the right and the paper guide correctly adjusted.

On my 2265+ I will be printing and I recieve "paper width error" press online to continue


The "paper width error" indicates you are printing out side the area of the paper. ie the document you are trying to print is wider than the physical width of the paper you have in the printer.
The printer displays this error to give you the opportunity to remedy the problem as printing outside the area of the page may be undesirable;

  • Data printed outside the area of the paper will be lost, you will not see this information you printed on the paper.
  • You may shorten the life of the print head by printing on the platen with no paper to protect the print head.
I would recommend the following;
  1. Check the size of paper selected on the computer system, or ensure the data print width is the same or smaller than the actual paper size used in the printer.
  2. If it is not possible to change document size on the system or if the printed outside the paper width are not required or are simply spaces (ie no print) you may wish to turn of the paper width sensor so the edge of the paper is not detected and the error is no seen, the paper width sensor can be disabled in the following way.
  • Power printer OFF
  • Hold down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON, keep the ONLINE button held down whilst the printer powers on and initializes.
  • Release the ONLINE button when you see ASCII80 and ASCII 136 along the top line of the display.
  • Press BUTTON 4 (under NEXT) repeatedly until you see the APW option along the top line of the display.
  • Press the button directly under APW
  • Press BUTTON 2 or 3 to toggle the APW setting to OFF
  • Press the button under SET (button 1)
  • THen power the printer OFF and after a few seconds back on again.
The above actions will disable the Paper Width Sensor and you will no longer see the Paper Width Error, be aware you may be losing data and or shortening the life of the print head.

My photosmart 7150 prints half a page(vertical half) ! It worked fine before this. Help! thanks


Ok, I was having this same problem and the solution for me appears to lay in the fact that the "photo tray" was pushed in, signaling to the printer that it should print to the size specifications of a photo (approximately half the width of a standard letter page). I should also mention that with my problem, the printer would hang at every single print job--presumably to wait for you to input your photo paper--and that executing this fix solved the problem.
To fix this, I followed these instructions: SOLUTION:Follow the steps below to correct the issue:
  1. Disconnect power to the printer.
  2. Remove all photo paper from the Photo Tray.
  3. Push the Photo Tray completely into the printer.
  4. Snap the Photo Tray out (towards you) sharply.
  5. Reconnect power to the printer.
  6. Print a self-test on 8.5 X 10 paper.
  7. Engage the Photo Tray.
  8. From the Printer Toolbox, select Calibrate the Photo Tray .

My printer stoped in the midle of print


The 2280+ is indicating a defect with the paper width sensor, the paper width sensor on the 2280+ is locate on the carriage and detects when you try to print off the paper.

You may wish to disable the paper width sensor. To continue printing, this can be done in the following way.

Power the printer on holding down ONLINE
When the printer displays ASCII80 ASCII136 along the top line of the display release the ONLINE button.
Press the Button under NEXT (button 4) repeatedly until you see APW
Press the button under APW
Press button 3 to change this to OFF
Press SET
Place the printer ONLINE to exit the menu.

This will disable the Paper Width sensor which should resolve the issue with the message being seen. You can then get an engineer to look at the paper width sensor to see why this is not working.

My epson rx420 only prints the left hand side of any document ??? Can any one help please . many thanks


have you set the page setup in document is same with page setup at print setup. Some new epson printer use paper sensor to measure the paper width. If page setup wider than actually paper inserted, the printer will print only half page. example : Your document 10 cm wide, page setup 20 cm, and you insert 10 cm paper wide. It will print only half of 10 cm, 5 cm.

Epson RX520 dont print the full picture


It's a problem with the paper not feeding straight. The printer will make a pass & sense the width of the paper & print accordingly. If it feeds in crooked then it sees it as being narrow & only prints to that width. Happens more easily with heavy photo paper.

Apply a bit of pressure to the paper as it feeds & it's happy days.

Zebra TLP2844 Prints Centered and Half the Width


create a word template document with the page size the same size as the label. Set the margins to 0 and fill the label up with text. This should make the printer print right the way over the bale.
