Optra S 1625 - not printing an inch on the right side of paper

Hello.  This is weird but every time I print, no matter the program, the printer doesn't print all the way on the right side of the paper.  About an inch gets cut off.   But when I print in Manuel mode, it's all fine.

Our printer is leaving black spots on everything it prints and no matter what I do (change cartridge/clean out) they get worse and worse. What do I do?

hello, you might want to do a half test, i will explain, when the printer starts printing, open the front cover after paper has started to pick up and has gone halfway into machine, pull toner cartridge out, and check print, if the black spots are there, then the problem is toner, if not then it would be fuser.

Hello sir, how to take print on A4 page? please help me

Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
  • Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menumag-glass_10x10.gif next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
  • Step 6.Press "Print" to print the photograph.

    Recently I have gotten a message,

    The application you are using is calling for a specific size or type paper in tray 1.

    For example, you have "Executive" size paper and the job needs Letter size.

    Easiest fix is to make sure your "Page Set-up" matches what you have in Tray.

    Failing that, you can also, open tray 1, pull it most of the way out and then push it back in. This will force a re-read of the paper size. Then press the "Green" button.

    If it still happens, use the "Print To File" check-box on the Printer Properties screen and then name the print file something like "tray1fail" and send it to me at and I'll be happy to run it through some of my file readers and tell you what the print job is looking for. There is no fee or charge for this. I actually enjoy reading print files.

    Hello, Leo.

    Here are the steps:

    1. Turn the printer power off (O).
    2. Press and hold Select and Return together.
    3. Turn on the printer.
    4. Release the buttons once Performing Self Test appears on the operator panel display.
    5. The printer performs its normal POR cycle, then prints one copy of the Print Quality Test pages.
    Hope this helps.

    I print borderless several times & found white border both side

    This is because the image is of a different aspect ratio than the paper. That is, if your image's dimension is 8x12 inch and you are trying to print it on an 8x10-inch paper, the printer will adjust the longer side to 10 inches. Hence the shorter side will become less than 8 inches. This will lead to white border on the shorter side. If you try to adjust this, the longer side will fall out of the paper and hence in the print, this portion will be cut.

    So please understand that this is normal. One option to prevent this is to crop the image to fit the paper size.

    I need to reset the default settings on my Lexmark Optra S 1625

    It sounds like they changed the Paper Type in the menu settings. I cannot remember 100% where it is on this model, but if you go through the menus, you should come across a Paper Menu option. In this menu, you need to change the Paper Type for Tray 1 to Plain Paper.

    Optra T610 Print Problem

    Your paper size settings for Tray 1 is probably wrong. Make sure it is set to Letter and the type is Plain Paper. If your Paper size is Universal, then either the paper guide in the tray is set wrong or the paper size sensor is broken. If the sensor is broken, you can disable auto paper size sensing so the printer will allow you to specify a paper size. To disable paper size sensing, you need to go into Config Mode. The other way is to send a PJL command to the printer to disable the function.

    Paper source

    I would suggest checking printer properties in the computer and ensure the paper size and source is Letter and set to Automatic Choose. Another choice may be to deleted the printer driver and re-install it. You can also go into the menu options until you get to Set factory defaults, press Select, then try the print job again.
    I really suspect a program is controlling this from the computer.
    To get a list of the existing printer settings, Select Menu and use the Right Arrow button until you get to Printer Menu Settings. The printed report should tell you what your actuall settings are. Maybe the default is set to Custom, instead of Letter.
    The Set Factory Defaults option should fix most problems.

    Printing Borderless at 42" width?

    Set the roll size to 44 inch, set your left margin to 0 (in your preprint software), experiment. With margins set at 0, using Onyx Productionhouse 7.3, the 9800 will print approx 41.8 inch image on 42 inch roll 43.8 on 44, etc. This is considered borderless printing. No matter what size roll you tell the printer it has in it, it will print to about an eighth to a sixteenth of an inch short of the paper's actual edge (that's the left side of the roll paper coming out of the printer - the right side of the print). If you load, for example, a 36 inch roll, tell the printer its a 44 inch roll, and send a 40 inch wide print, with a left margin of 0 it will print around 35.8 inches, cutting off the image just before it would overprint and get ink on the machine (1/8 - 1/16inch before the edge of your 36 inch stock). It is possible that these tollerances will be different depending on what software you send your images with... hope this helps!

    Poor print

    Try running a calibration on the printer.

    Also try running clean heads function on the printer if it can do so.

    Most printers have those options under maintenance.
