Question about Printers & Copiers

My margin gets cut off on one side whenever I make copies

I have an AR-407 copier, and whenever I use the document feeder to make 8.5x14 sized copies, the side of each page gets cut off.  I have tried fiddling with the margin settings, but nothing seems to work.  Any suggestions?

Thank you so much for any help you can offer!

Re: My margin gets cut off on one side whenever I make...

Are you copying onto the same size of paper or onto another size like A4? If changing size you will have to tell the machine what sizes are in use.

If you are using similar sizes, try setting off a stack and as the machine feeds a sheet in, turn off the power. Lift the lid and see iff the page is running in the correct position and not off to one side. If the page is off to one side, you need to check that you have the paper guide (where fitted) pushed up to the correct position etc.

Let me know if this helps any.

I am feeding a portrait fax letter size and it is being received partially - one half is cut off. please explain

It sounds as if the document feeder is not recognizing the proper size of paper. Try making a copy, is the copy correct or is the copier indicating to load a certain size of paper. The paper width guides as well as the raised tabs on the document feeder tell the copier the proper paper size. Could the problem be on the other end? I know I have several customers that have the paper size dials or indicators incorrect for the paper in their cassettes. This would be if only a single reciever of your fax is complaining. You may want to see if rotating the fax in the LTR-R direction works.

My Canon ImageRUNNER 3225 does not print correctly aligned when sent through the feeder? When feeding paper, I have tried Landscape and the resulting copy is cut off from the top and bottom and the left...

Is it ok when you just put the document on the glass? If so, the Document feeder needs a whole set of rollers.
Otherwise the document scanner may be bad. This needs to be changed out by a technician.

Dark, vertical stripe on copy on Sharp AR-M160

Have you cleaned the small, narrow glass window leftmost of the platen? It is directly above the scanning bar's "home" position, and that's where the document is scanned, while it's fed by the feeder, passing over the bar (the paper moves, as oposed to platen scanning, when the bar is moving and document remains still).

Always prints more to left than established margin

Check you Page Setup andmargin set. Sounds like the page isn't set up properly. When you typing a document, go to the FILE then PAGE SETUP. Margins and Paper Layout.
Hope this helps. Bud

Margin problem

Won't be the printer so I guess that leaves software or printer driver settings or the actual document setup.
