Cannot get the default to stay on letter size. Always goes back to legal no matter what I do. I have changed, applied, etc and it still goes back to print legal and prints the image several times li

I am having trouble with a Canon MF 4150 printer. Everytime I go to print something, I have to go in and go to preferences and change my default setting back to letter and fit the page. If I don't, it automatically goes to print on legal and prints it several times on the legal page like labels or business cards. I have changed all the preferences, applied them, etc over and over and it still always goes back to this no matter what. Any suggestions...it's driving me crazy and I can't get it to keep the correct default settings.

Try to download the latest  driver, also you can change this from the machine itself, but if ur machine is connect through network, you have to browse the ip address of the machine and change the setting from there,

How to copy legal to letter on copystar CS 4005i


Make sure your default settings are for AUTO paper selection and 100% magnification to start. That is the most common default settings. Then, under "Zoom" change to AUTO magnification and under PAPER SELECTION specify Letter (either landscape or portrait). Now when you copy a legal original (8.5" x 14") it will be reduced at 78% to fit it on an 11" sheet. An alternative is to use "X-Y" zoom. Now you can stipulate 78% for the "X" dimension and leave the "Y" dimension at 100%. You will want letter size paper to be feeding lengthwise (portrait). Now you can copy legals and the image is reduced top-to-bottom only, leaving it much more readable.

My font always goes back to 10 after I have changed it for a document. I want it to stay where I put it.


If you are using Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010 follow this steps:

1. Click a tiny arrow at the font frame. The font frame is a box that contains the font name, font size, etc. At the right-down of the frame, you will find an arrow symbol.

2. When the font window opens, select the font size and other settings as required.

3. Click " Set as Default" button.

I hope this will assist you.

When I choose default to letter size in Lexmark E460dn printer, it bumps to legel, asks to load legal paper and then prints 3/4 page. I do not want to print in legal size. I want it to stay at letter.


Please try to check the your drivers settings. The settings set on your driver will always override the printer settings. Please click on the link below, this will show you how to create custom size forms or paper size. http://bitly.com/nVAsX1 If you need further assistance please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

I need tray 2 to be the default setting for this printer. It always reverts back to tray 1 everytime I try to print.


Paper Handling Issue -
Hit Menu
Arrow down to Paper Handling and hit the green check
hit the green arrow to go into Tray 1 size - arrow down to envlope #10 hit the green arrow to save
arrow down
hit the green arrow to go into Tray 1 type - arrow down to envlope hit the green arrow to save
arrow down
hit the green arrow to go into Tray 2 size - arrow down to letter/legal (depends on what your using) hit the green arrow to save
arrow down
hit the green arrow to go into Tray 2 type - arrow down to plain (assume that your using plain paper) hit the green arrow to save

also pull out the paper tray and confirm the guides (where you can adjust from letter to legal etc)
is set correctly.

That should take care of it unless the document you are tring to print is a different type of paper size.

Scanner keeps scanning 81/2 x 11 paper and saving as 81/2 x 14


The scanner driver is probably set to save as 8.5" x 14" as the default. Open the Lexmark scanner utility or driver properties and look for the default scan settings. (These will include file type, resolution, and scanned image dimensions, among other settings.)

If you see that the current default setting is 8.5" x 14" (or "legal") you can change it to 8.5" x 11" (or Letter), or if there is an option for automatically detecting size based on the original's size, you can do that as well. Click OK or Apply to save your changes.

Settings in HP Printer LJ 4100.


The 4100 will look at tray 1 first then tray 2 If tray 1 is empty it will pull from tray 2 if the papersize matches the job otherwise back to tray 1 and ask for the paper.
Your machine likely thinks the paper in tray 2 is not the size you want. For instance you have LETTER in tray2 But the machine thinks it is legal.
The LJ 4100 detects the paper size in tray 2 automatically. If you print a configuration page:
MENU them INFORMATION then ITEM then CONFIGURATION PAGE then SELECT.
The page will print and show what size paper the machine thinks is in Tray 2 if it says LEGAL and you have LETTER you need to Check The Paper Backstop in TRAY 2.
The back stop sets the length of the paper if it is not at Letter (8 1/2 x 11) the machine will not detect LETTER. Even if it just a little bit off or between positions.

If it is set at LETTER then you may have bad switches in the machine that are operated by the tray.
Or the arms on the tray that operate the switches are not moving properly.
You will find the arms on the rt, side of the tray and feel them change position when you move the backstop.
Hope this helps.

Won't recognize legal size paper


I have a Brother MFC-8840Dn (full legal-size flatbed as well as document feeder). I use Windows XP Pro and a USB connection. I'm not sure my fix works with other Brother models or different Windows operating systems, but it's a way to start troubleshooting at least.

I've always been able to print legal-sized pages from word processing or spreadsheet programs and receive legal-sized faxes. But I never could make legal-sized photocopies or PDF scans. The image was always cut off at Letter size. The fix is a Brother Utility set-up setting:

*** Go to Start / All Programs / Brother / MFL-Pro Suite MFC 8840Dn / Scanner Utility. (This link may also be called something like Scanner Settings.)
*** At the "Maximum Scanning Size", select "Legal" instead of "Letter/A4".
*** Click OK and restart your PC for the new setting to take effect.

It's like magic -- I can now scan a full legal-sized PDF, whether on the flatbed or through the ADF. I also tried a compressed TIFF scan and it came out fine.

**** Make sure your software and/or Brother Control Center scanning configurations are set to Legal if that's what you want for the particular image scan. The Brother Utility setting simply enables the option of choosing the larger legal-sized paper, which then allows the full legal-sized image scan, You always have to set your software to make that choice, just as you would to make and print smaller images on Letter, A4, envelopes, etc. (NOTE: I always start scans through software on my PC, like Adobe Acrobat or PaperPort, and the Utility Setting fix is working fine. However, I just tried pressing the SCAN button on the front panel of the MFC itself with a legal-sized document on the flatbed and through the document feeder. I still got Letter-sized image scans. So, there must be another setting somewhere for starting scans directly from the MFC that I'll locate later.)

I was about to buy a different brand of scanner because of the frustration with legal-sized images. It's like having a new scanner now :) I hope this Utility Setting info helps you troubleshoot your legal-sized image problem.
