How do I copy a legal size document?

I slide my legal size document into the upper tray and fill the bottom tray with legal size paper, but when I push the black button, it stops copying the paper at the 8 1/2 inch mark.  Help, what am I doing incorrectly?

You need to change it in the menu, it's stopping because once it reaches the letter size the sensor detects that there is still paper there and jams.

Re: How do I copy a legal size document?

I was trying the same thing and I was sure that somehow in the printer settings I changed it to legal paper size etc. But I tried this morning for an hour and couldn't get it to work and then I also tried on the actual printer in the menu, FINALLY i had a brain wave and went into the menu on the printer "reduce/enlarge" and went to "custom100%" and pressed "ok" it printed legal to legal hope this helps b/c there's nothing worse than knowing it should work and it doesnt want to and if anyone knows what tray is "tray 2" on the hp 7590 officejet pro let me know........ughhhh

I have a Panasonic Workio 1820 photocopier and I can't get it to copy A3 size documents. I have set the copy size to A3 but it will only copy and print an A4 portion of the document.

from where are u using the A3 paper . if ur using the drawer then simply select the original size and copy size as per ur requirement and first change the tray paper size to A3 in operator settings. if ur using by pass tray then be sure to pull the entire tray out as there is a sensor in the last end of the tray that senses A3 and legal paper

We bought a canon pixma MX870 printer because it was supposed to be able to copy legal sized documents. The cassette on the one we received will not extend to handle Legal Sized paper, and the scanner bed...

Some info from Canon's site in the specs:

Max. Document SizeFlatbed:8.5" x 11.7"
ADF: 8.5" x 14"

This machine can only copy legal documents if you put them in the sheet feeder, not on the flatbed.

As for the paper supply, the cassette is indeed too small for legal paper. The automatic sheet feeder, however, will handle legal paper. That's the tray in the rear that you use for specialty paper; see page 17 of the Getting Started manual.

If you use the ADF and the rear tray, you can copy legal documents. That may not be as convenient a solution as you were hoping for, but it is better than no solution at all.

Change legal size to letter size

scan it as a document, re-scale it in required size and save then print in required size.

these adjustments are in your word or office programs. if you need to make it to copy, insert your original in the scanner, in paper tray insert your letter paper, select copy and then re-size, this should do it "on the run".

Legal size copies

Your printer doesn't support Legal size to Scan and Copy, you can scan/copy it by reducing the size of the paper from the menu. 10% will fit since the actual paper size supported by your printer is 8.5X11.7inch while the legal size is 8.5X14inch. Good luck. For more info check out here :

Ricoh MP 5500 changes 8.5 x 11 documents to legal size on scan.

Do NOT use customized paper. Set your paper tray to LEGAL paper. Set the tray as LEGAL in the printers setup-menu. Make sure you choose LEGAL in the printout-dialog-properties. Then it should work. Good Luck.

Coping Copies of Legal Size

For either a Printer or Copier, the 1st thing is you have to use full-size LEGAL paper. If your copier won't accept this, then you cannot do it. It has to fit in the paper tray.

Second, use the setup menu of your copier and set paper to 8.5 by 14 or LEGAL size, for a Printer
goto Start, Settings, Printers and Networks and find your printer/copier, Right click it, select Properties, select General or Paper tab and look for Advanced Settings. There you will find Paper Size pull down. Change it to Legal, Click Apply, Click Close

We had problems to print legal and after 30 minutes of trying it finally printed legal. Now we cant go back to letter size so every document prints on legal paper. Can I get clear instruction on how we can...

When you say printing? Do you mean from the computer or are you making copies. If you are printing from the computer you need to change the paper size that you are printing to under the printers properties or the out put tray. If you are making copies just hit the reset button or just manually select another paper tray on the display pannel. Or if you have change a paper tray to leagal size change it back to LTR and make sure the paper is installed the correct direction.
