Last print line of any doc printed with HP J6480 is cut off

I have a HP J6480 All-in-one printer. Any time I print a document, the last line is cut-off (i.e. the top half of the line prints, but the bottom half of the line does not print). This situation occurs regardless of how close the last line is to the bottom of the page.

I had been experiencing this problem intermittently for some time, so I finally got a hold of HP support and with the second support technician, I did get a solution that worked for the document I was printing at the time. When Printing, click Printing Preferences, click the Advanced tab, under the Printer Features section, set Minimize margins to On. Per the technician, 'The printable area of the product increases (bottom margin 12 mm to 3 mm), so that printing closer to the edge of the paper.'

Also, he recommended using the printer's Print Preview option under same the Printer Preferences window. When I did, I did in fact see the document's bottom paper being 'cutoff' with the old settings (i.e., Minimize margins Off), with it On, it look okay.

Hope this helps. Let me know if this works for you.

HP OFFICE JET J6480 ALWAYS SPEWS OUT EXTRA BLANK PAGE AFTER PRINTING


Check if your document has empty lines at the end. Use your keyboard down arrow to scroll past the last line of text. Then backspace until you get to the last line.

The last line of every document is cut off and the bottom half is missing as though the margin isn't long enough, but that's not the case.


Try to print a self test page using the below steps
  1. Load U.S. Letter, A4, or legal size paper into the input tray.
  2. Press the Setup button.
  3. Press 1 to select Print Report , and then press 1 to select Self-Test Report .
  4. Press OK . The self-test page prints.If this prints fine, perform the partial reset of the printer using the below steps:
    1. Unplug the power cord from the HP All-in-One.
    2. Wait for 20 seconds.
    3. Press and hold # and 3 while plugging in the power cord to the HP All-in-One.
    4. Release the buttons after the HP All-in-One starts up.
    5. The HP All-in-One will now be reset to factory defaults.

NOT PRINTING LAST LINE ON PAGE


it could be that the lines on the spreadsheet arent bolded correctly or the spacing at the end of the document needs to be shortened. try to delete one space so that that line is brought up a line.

New Vista Computer wont print last line, XP no problem


Using the print or printer setup (I can remember what is actually written) from within word. ensure that the print margins are not to small and cutting off your words, or if the print is appearing close to the edge of the paper when you print, you maybe outside the range of the prints ability to print that close to the edge of the page in whice case you would increase your margins in the print setup (ie from .125 to .375 or .50)
