    cannot set top of form

  • sbayless Aug 19, 2008

    Same here, think its related to Tear Off position, but still no luck figuring it out.

    I can't get the printer to line up where I want it to tear off. I use the micro down button to get it where I want it, but I can't get it to stay there!!!

We had a power failure and now our Lexmark 2391 dot matrix printer will not print from the top of the page. i need to know how to setup/reconfigure the top of the page? thank you


  1. Push the ALT button and then the PARK LOAD button to back the paper out.
  2. Push the PARK LOAD button to reload the paper. The Ready light should now be blinking.
  3. Use the MICRO up or down buttons to adjust as needed, making sure that the top of form is set on the very first page that enters the printer. Typically, the top edge of the first sheet of paper should be even with the ribbon.
  4. When the page is lined up properly, press the START/STOP button. The printer will record the current position as the top of form and then feed paper to the tear off position.
  5. Use the MICRO up and down buttons to place the top of the paper at the tear off bar.
  6. After the tear off is positioned properly, press the START/STOP button twice to save the tear off position.
  7. Test the positions with a sample print job. If the alignment is still off, follow this entire procedure from the beginning again as needed.

You can modify the position in the menu.
The start position can be prgrammed in the personal settings.
Moving the paperwon't change anything because the printer will always check the top of feed

There is no easy way. You need to adjust starting position for every form. There is fine feed function and Top Of Form setting procedure, so you can adjust the minimum space between top of porm and first printed string (user's guide explains in details how to do it). But after that you need to decide whether you manually set the start position by rotating the knob or play with your application to adjust margins etc.

Line feeds


Hi-

When you said line feed do you mean the Top of form?

hope this helps

1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the desired tractor is selected (the corresponding tractor arrow should be lit).
2. Open the upper cover.
3. Press the Top of Form button to enter top-of-form mode. The printer beeps once, and the Top of Form light turns on.
4. Use the Micro Feed buttons to feed the paper to the desired top-of-form position. The “A” on the ribbon protector shows you where the bottom edge of your first line of text will print. This position is based on the first printable line of text. If your software inserts a top margin of five lines, your text will actually print five lines below the top-of-form position.
5. Press the Top of Form button again to exit and save your new top-of-form position. Then close the top cover.

Keep me posted if you have inquiries, thanks!

It sounds like there is 12 inch form length (or may be A4) selected on the computer system. The data from the system will take precidence over the 11 form length set on the printer.
If using Windows, ensure the Printing Preferences in the pritner driver are set to 11 form, Also check Printer Properties for a paper size ensure this is set to 11 inch
On the 'System' check the paper size selected within the application (if available) Check this is set to 11 inch form length
Check document margins to ensure these are not reducing the 'printable area' on the page. If availabe to a Print Preview on system to see what the document looks like.

If your application outputs raw data to the printer, check the number of lines per page assming printing at 6 lines per inch you can fit 66 lines on an 11 form. Check no more than 66 lines are per page, it sounds like 72 might be being sent befor a Form Feed in the data. (there may be a 1 line top margin set on the printer)

Finaly check the top margin setting on the printer to ensure it is set to 0 so you have the full 66 lines available on a page on the printer I think you would be looking to set the FORM ADJUST to 0 to adjust the top margin
