Trailing edge lines

My A4 and A3 sized bordereless prints are ruined by two distinct lines about half an inch in from the trailing edge. Doesn't happen on 6x4 prints. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Printing on custom paper sizes I can not set my a3 printer to print any longer than 42cm x 29.7cm A3, It should be able to print 29.7x 84cm half of a2

The following are the max printable areas for the Canon i9950.
A3+, A3, Ledger, B4, A4, B5, A5, 5" x 7", 4" x 6" Size
Printable Area (width x height)
A3+ (13" x 19")
322.2 x 475.0 mm / 12.7 x 18.7 in
290.2 x 412.0 mm / 11.4 x 16.2 in
Ledger (11" x 17")
272.6 x 423.8 mm / 10.7 x 16.7 in
250.2 x 356.0 mm / 9.9 x 14.0 in
203.2 x 289.0 mm / 8.0 x 11.4 in
175.2 x 249.0 mm / 6.9 x 9.8 in
141.2 x 202.0 mm / 5.6 x 7.9 in
5" x 7" / 127.0 x 177.8 mm
120.2 x 169.8 mm / 4.7 x 6.7 in
4" x 6" / 101.6 x 152.4 mm
94.8 x 144.4 mm / 3.7 x 5.7 in

Borderless printing will allow you to print up to the full size of the paper but no larger than 297 x 420mm for A3 and 330 x 482 mm for A3+.

It is not possible to print on A2 paper.

Cannot fill a3 sheet

Have you set up the page as A3? If so, should be ok if you set the printer paper size to A3. If you set up the page on A4 you will need to tell the the printer to 'scale to A3' and it's best to say you want to preview before printing

Media curls on lead and trailing edges

Any of the following:-

Ensure the correct paper weight settings are in use. Excesive heat will cause paper curl.
Feed paper short edge first.
This is normal with high ink coverage on light paper. Use a heavier weight paper.
Your fuser may need replacing.

Repetitive defects are defects that occur in the same vertical position
on the page, but not necessarily on every page. Most repetitive
defects are caused by problems with one of the following, and are
indicated by the positioning of the defect on the page:

 charging roller (at 44 mm)—see additional information under
“Charge roller set” on page 454.
 cleaning roller (at 56 mm)

or every other letter- or A4-sized page)

Envelope printing

You need to insert the envelope in the manual feed area and open the exit door at the back this allows the envelope to go straight through the printer hopefully limiting creasing. Check the envelope settings in windows make sure that you are using the correct size and feed selection.

R1800 Borderless Printing Problem

Hi Tom, Have you downloaded the latest driver from the Epson web site. Also make sure the output tray is in the correct position and that you are using the correct paper. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight A3+, A3, A4 Premium Glossy Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 in.), 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m (Roll paper) Premium Semigloss Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m, 100 mm x 8 m (Roll paper) Archival Matte Paper A3+, A3, A4 Watercolor Paper-Radiant White A3+ Velvet Fine Art Paper A3+ Ensure the output tray is in the correct position as if the tray is too low and the paper "falls" down into the tray the weight of the paper could pull the last few millimeters of paper out of the exit rollers, causing the band.
