Mirror image when I print

On a imac, OSX 10.4, when I print on a mfc-5440CN , I get a mirror image. I am printing an invoice using a program call Billable.

This came up a while ago and I fixed it my adjusting something, but I don’t remember how I did it.

Prints fine on Appleworks. Any suggestions?

    this hasn’t helped. I just reinstalled from the CD. Was I supposed to custom install the driver only?

Trying to print on a #10 envelope from iMac 27 with Os 10.5.1 using iWork. Printer will not load paper

I am on an iMac using OSX 10.5.8 and printing on an Epson R1800. With iWork, word processing module I set up the envelope to print and under the File menu, select page setup and choose #10 Envelope with Portrait orientation. I feed the envelope into the printer in the normal horizontal, top first, print surface up. In the File menu I select Print and hit Return. Most of the time this works. Sometimes the envelope feeds through without printing, and occasionally the envelope won't feed but the printer goes through the printing cycle. The R1800 is not the ideal envelope printer. It is made to print photos on photographic paper. I use an old fashioned typewriter to address envelopes.

SOMETIMES my printer prints in mirror image. It always prints photos mirror image from iPhoto. Any ideas??

Check the printer properties in the printers folder. You may have accidentally clicked on an option that makes the printer print in mirror image.

Brother mfc MFC-5440CN magenta issues

If you have used generic ink the head is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore.

Last chance is to use original brother ink which has cleaning fluids within the ink. Run the cleaning procedure twice and simply print 10 PAGES afterwards. Wait A DAY AND TRY TO PRINT IN MAG AGAIN:

If there will be no mag. the ph is definitley clogged and needs replacement.

Reverse printing

Have you found a solution for this problem??   I have the same problem; happens sporadically but once it happens there's no fix.  With the particular page I am printing I can't get it to correct itself. I thought at first it was associated with Classic apps but that wasn't consistent.  I just printed from Safari on a wireless iBook and this page is also reversed.  Extremely frustrating!!!!!
