Re: Printer Settings

Have you done so from within "Control Panel" -> "Printers" and right clicking properties on your printer icon? doing it from within a "print" dialog or word processor will set it up only for that specific print.
Make sure you are set up correctly on all tabs (some settings might appear twice in two different dialogs) and re-save your profile.
Lastly, make sure you are indeed printing to the printer you have just set. You might have a different printer icon set as the default spooler.

Image not fully printed

Easiest thing to try first is your printer settings, where you should be able to select the exact paper size (8.5x11,legal, 4x6, 5x7, etc.). You also may need to look at the 'resize' options (fit to page, print as is, etc.). You can usually easily get to printer settings by using menu bar command File-->Print , then selecting the [Printer Properties] or [Properties] button in the pop-up print menu.

How to print a 4x6 picture from mfc255cw

It depends on the program you are using but when you go to print and next to the printer pull down box. Click on properties then go to the paper/quality settings select 4x6. That should be about all you need to do you may need to tweak a few more settings to get it how you would like it.
Thank you,

When I print pictures on the 3210 HP all-in-one, they come out very small even though I choose the 4X6 in paper size for the photo tray. I've tried everything I can, but the pictures keep printing wallet...

First thing that comes to mind is that a 4x6" print could print four wallet sized photos; be shure your are not printing more than one copy.

If you are trying to print more than one,it will print the actual picure you have and leave space for the number of other nonexistent prints selected.

See page 75 of the Manual. for directions on how to set up photo printing.

If you have photoshop, you can resize your documents using the menu item, Image / Image size, (Alt + i then i again)

Set the resolution to 300, then the document size width to 6 or 10 inches.

This will guarantee that your document is full size, (though the printer should be able to resize it to fit on the page no matter what).

Give these a try. It's really a shot in the dark, but it's my best guess.

Printing 4x6 photos on photo paper

Sorry but your question seems to be unclear.
Here are the solutions that I see:
- try fixing the orientation of your paper on the printer:
-- go to printer "properties" then select "paper" then set it to
landscape or portrait. You might just have to cut the extra
- try changing the paper size on the printer "properties" if it has
no 4x6 then choose "custom size"

Unable to pring 4 x 6 index cards from a Word doc.

Thanks for trying to help. Meanwhile I went to HP tech chat and went also back and forth on possible setting solutions for the HP c6180 all-in-one printer I was inquiring about. The real problem turned out to be in the Microsoft Word document settings. When I started from scratch with new document setup and selected the correct format for 4x6 index cards, the printer settings with just a couple of resettings worked fine. I was trying to control all the settings from the HP solution center and my printer settings when the real issue was to be sure to set the Word document settings correctly in the first place. thanks again.

Will not print 4 x 6 prints

try to find the margin settings of the application that you are printing  with. If margins are setup in a wrong way it will print anywhere it likes.


Aso see the paper size. e.g. A4, A3 etc.


I think you should take a normal a4 paper and print it and see the size of the image and the size of the document that you have created.


Another way to test it is to copy the image(content) only and paste it in some other application like MS Word or something else and try to print it in 4x6.



If it is an image and you can copy it to MS Paint then do it and cut everything else (crop the image accordig to its' size), then print.


Remember to place the paper on the right hand side of the paper tray. (You can do the reverse also if it required.)
