SOURCE: epson LQ -590 PRINTER PROBLEM

  1. You text page is larger than the printer page,
    margins are set wrong, or there are special
    formatting marks and/or characters at the end
    of your documents.

  2. Check default printer paper-size settings:

    START --> Printers & Faxes -> Chose printer -->
    right-click --> properties --> ....

    This sets the default settings, that are in effect every time
    an application starts up.

    Also note, that if printer settings are not listed within
    your START menu, you can find them in the Windows
    control panel. You can change what shows in the
    START menu and what doesn't by right-clicking the
    task bar.

  3. Now start your application and do the same thing under
    the file menu:

    File --> Print --> Settings ...
    File --> Printer settings ...
    File --> Page setup .... and also margins. etc...

    This sets the actual settings for this application or the
    current document. These settings over-ride the global
    default setting in item (2)
  4. To clarify, the settings in item (2) should be setup to
    reflect the way you use the printer the most often.

    The settings in item (3) reflect the actual document you
    are trying to print now.

  5. Be careful that the paper size settings (3) accurately
    reflect the paper in the machine, do not confuse
    metric sizes: A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 ....

    with English sizes: Letter, Legal,..... etc

    These do not line up exactly.

  6. Also check your document, to make sure that there
    are no extra characters at the end of your document:

    Paragraph marks, Page Brakes, Form Feeds, etc.

    Also check the paragraph settings (in Word for Windows,
    for example, to make sure that is not the cause of the
    problem.

    In word for Windows, for example, you can also go
    into tools, options and change the way your document
    is displayed, such that all formatting marks become
    visible (or click on the paragraph tool)

  7. Finally, most Windows applications offer some kind
    of print PREVIEW facility, so that you can see what
    you are going to get, before you physically print it.



I hope this solves your problem, please rate my answers.
Good luck.

Left margin cuts off


Try changing the left margin size in the page setup. Decrease the left margin size.

You could also try printing in Landscape instead of Portrait just to see if it captures the left margin.

How do we adjust the margins on right side of paper?


There are 2 ways.

1. You can use the program that you are using to set the margins.
  • If you are using MS Word, just go click on File (upper left), select Page Setup, and look for Margins. And you can set the margins on all sides of the paper.
  • If you are using other programs they are usually in the same location (File > Page Setup > Margins)
2. go to your Printer's directory and change settings(warning this changes the printer settings so all your documents will be affected)
  • If you are using windows, go press start and the bottom left and look for the word "printers" or control panel.
  • if you click on control panel, look for the word printers again and click it.
  • when you are on the printers window right-click on the printer, and select properties
  • in properties, look for printer preferences and left-click it
  • look for margins to change the settings.
I hope this helps.

I can't get my computer to print because it keeps saying the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable area of the page. I have a meeting to go to and It's important that I get this paper off the...


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  2. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  3. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  4. Click OK.

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

The cursor is at the top of the page no where is seted the margin


Sounds like you're using Word and the margins are gone. To bring them back, do the following:

Put your mouse cursor above the white of the page. It'll turn into a square with arrows pointing up and down. Double-click and you'll get the margins back.

You can then go to File -> Page Setup to change your margin sizes.

Problem with konica minolta paper margin


You don't have any solution but to increase the above margin to be equal as the bottom margin. To successfully print the pages, this printer need a larger bottom margin compared with the above margin. Just use the 'Center on page' option from your graphic application.

I cannot set the right and left margins on documents(I don't know what changed but, the margins used to be .75 inch). My printer is an MP830. Thank-you for your assistance. L. Prescott


Margins are set in the software application, not in the printer settings. For example, in Microsoft Word, Excel, or Wordpad, margin settings are found under File/Page Setup.

Margin problem


Problem---Printer prints email on the very edge of the paper and leaves off the first 3 letters of every word down the edge of that margin. If you have Windows Live Mail forget trying to fix it from there. Clicking File will not give you the page setup option you are looking for. Go to the bottom of the screen, click "all programs", look for and click "Internet Explorer", click File, click "page setup". A screen comes up in which you can change the margins. The left margin is probably set on .25. Change it to .75. Okay. Go back and run a test email.

Margin problem


Won't be the printer so I guess that leaves software or printer driver settings or the actual document setup.
