Check to make sure that there is nothing preventing the page from being pulled into the printer. Overlapping words is often caused by the paper feed not moving quickly enough, subsequently causing words to overlap and not span the entire page.
If that doesn't work, let me know and we'll troubleshoot further.

SOURCE: Epson R300 printing only in top left corner of page

Change the paper settings in the driver when you go to print. If you have it set to 10x15 it will only print a 10x15 patch in the corner.

Go to START, PRINTERS AND FAXES then right click on R300 and select PROPERTIES. Click PRINTING PREFERENCES and set the correct paper properties. Click OK all the way to desk top and the settings will be saved.

On the printer panel press ADVANCED, scroll down 3 times to PAPER SIZE and press OK. Select A4 and press OK.

SOURCE: Printer does not print whole document

In 'Print Preview' look at the margins, and see if anything is too close to the edge of the paper. If it is, then set your margins further from the edge, or drag graphics further from the edge, etc.

To correct the margins that are set to close to the edge of the paper, open the document in Microsoft Word and follow these steps:

  1. Make sure that you are using the same printer driver that gave you the error in Microsoft Word Viewer.
  2. In Word, on the File menu, click Page Setup.
  3. Click OK.

    You receive a warning dialog box about the unprintable regions.
  4. Click the Fix button.
  5. Save and close the document.
You can now open and print the document in Word Viewer without receiving the error message.

SOURCE: printer will not print a wordperfect document.

Try a test page when you set up your printer. If that works,
Try going to File, page setup and choosing a paper size and type there that matches the new printer. Make sure your printer is the default one or that you pick it in the drop down menu on the print menu after you choose print. .
Make sure your paper matches the document's paper

SOURCE: Printer prints blank pages from notepad, word, and excel.

Hi tim8094

Obviously there is nothing wrong with the printer, because you are able to print from the Internet.

Before attempting to print from word, excel etc, make sure you have the correct printer selected (check it through FILE MENU -> PRINT ->PROPERTIES)
Do a print test by typing just couple of words -may be in different color-
Best of luck

Printer will print from internet, but not Word


Open a word document, then press file at the top left side of the screen and then press print. When the print window opens, click the arrow next to the name of the printer you are going to use to print and make sure you have chosen the right one. If you do not see your printer name there, then go to your control panel and choose printers and set your printer as the default of choice. Then close and reopen word and try to print again. that should solve your issue.

I am trying to print onto pre-printed forms which have a dark blue band at the top. My printer isn't recognising that the band is there so is starting to print too far down the page. Help please!


This type of problem can usually be resolved simply by adjusting the margins from within your word processing program. Depending on which word processor you are using you can go into the page setup and make these changes. For Microsoft Word go to the "File" tab at the top then to page setup. The first tab that comes up will allow you to change the margins on the page. If the print is too far down try reducing the top margin from one inch to 0.5. If that is not enough reduce it some more. Print test pages on regular paper, then hold them up to the light against the paper with the pre-printed band to see how the print lines up. That way you don't waste the expensive paper!

Printer wont print what I want only mixed up words on top of page


With the printer on, pull the power plug out of the wall socket. Then power off your PC.
Wait a minute, then plug the printer power cord back into the wall. Turn the printer on, wait a minute, then power up your PC. It should print normally again.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
