Question about Lexmark JetPrinter X1185 All-In-One InkJet

Lexmark 2400 series - printing on broad paper.

I am trying to print on broad (a3) paper. The printer keeps wrapping the text to A4 format even though the driver is specifically set to A3 width. I have even tried to bypass the driver and write directly to the printer, with the same result.

    I am not using a Word Processor. I am simply connecting to the printer with delphi and sending text directly to the printer. I am not using any specific escape codes or anything, just straight text.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I have managed to solve my problem.

    The right margin is a setting on the printer. The right margin was set to 8'', I upped it to 13'', which solved my problem.

    The right margin feature is for some reason not documented in the manual. I eventually found it in the interactive printer menu under Forms Macro Options`.

Try printing as a multipage poster, set the paper type to A3 and do a preview. Sorry you will have to do this through a computer first. See if thats any help.

I assume the the 'Word Processor' is also set to A3?
It is not only the printer that needs to be set up.

Since A3 is twice the size of A4 I doubt it but... Does A3 size fit in the paper tray? If so you may be in luck but the original CD should have had the right driver, go to Lexmark site.

My printer will not print on A3, evn though it is an A3 printer. It says 'unexpected paper size'??

You need to open your "control panel" and from there to open "printer and faxes".After you open those, look for advance settings where you can say to the printer that the paper is A3 format, beacuase the default format of the printer i set to A4.Plase replay if you need any other help.Thanky for using Fixya!

It is often humidity. Try opening a new package of paper and seeing if this solves the problem. If it does, always keep your paper in a plastic box with some silicon pouches to keep it nice and dry. J.

Ricoh Aficio 450 paper format printing problem

This could be a few things, first thing i would try is to go in page setup under the program you are using and make sure paper is set to auto select (File>page setup). The program will override the print driver.
next make sure the driver setting (paper source) are also set to auto. make these changes by right clicking on the driver>printing preferences.
third I would go to the copier, Make sure the tray are set to the proper paper size and the display paper size matches the tray
