I have a Xerox 7655 printer and I am trying to use the direct print tabs. After downloading the template and following the instructions exactly, they are printing upside down and backwards. Can someone...



You may need to change the driver. I have seen different issues with machins printing tabs, that changing the print driver will solve. Most of the tab issues are when the driver is a PCL 5 or PCL 6 driver. Switching to a PS driver frequently helps resolve those issues.
The newest drivers would be located on Xerox.com. Go to the home page, select Drivers and downloads, then enter your model number in the search box, and then select downloads and drivers again and select the newest PS driver and install that. I am pretty sure a new fresh PS driver will resolve your problem.
I am including the setup procedure below, I assume this it the process you followed.
Try a new driver. If that doesn't resolve it, possibly the machine firmware itself will need to be updated to the newest version.




The template is set up to provide centered text in the available tab printing area at each position.
At each printing position click to highlight all the text visible on the sheet. Type in the wording you desire and proceed to the next sheet.
When printing the file ignore the warning about margins.
At The Printer:
1) Load the tabs long edge feed with the smooth edge feeding into the machine. The first tab will be on top towards the front of the printer.
2) Set the paper type to [Pre-cut tabs (106-176gsm).
3) Set the number in sequence using the [up/down] arrows for the number of tabs in the set.
4) Set the paper size to [9x11].
5) Select [Confirm].
At The Workstation:
1) Select [File], [Print] and select your printer from the [Printer Name] drop down.
2) Select the [Pages] radio button and set the page range to 2-6.
3) Select the [Paper/Output] tab.
4) Select the [Select Paper] button.
5) Select [Pre-cut tabs] from the [Type] drop down.
6) Set the number in sequence using the [up/down] arrows for the number of tabs in the set.
7) Select the [Layout/Watermark] tab.
8) Select [Fit to New Paper size] and select [9x11] from the drop down.
9) Select [Rotated Landscape] from the [Image orientation] drop down.
10) Select [Ok] twice to print the job.

When I print pics off my pic file, the pic comes out in a mirror image? I am using a HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One Printer. Also when I try to print 4x6 pics from my files using proper HP paper, it tells...


Hello,

When you go to print something next time, click on Preferences on the Print window. Click on the Advanced tab. There should be a Mirror Image choice and it probably says ON. Click on the ON and change it to OFF with the drop-down menu. Click OK. That should correct the mirror image problem.

As for the paper, I have a hard time printing on 4X6 paper too. Seems to be a common problem with HP. If you would like to accept the mirror image solution and post a separate on, you should get another expert to help you.

In the meantime I will try to research it further.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Canon imagePROGRAF W7250


I did not see that there was a response on Apple's support site that adds to the previous post I mentioned. Combing the steps from the two posts, I was able to get our W7250 to print from Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

Here are the steps I took to get a networked Canon imagePROGRAF 7250 to work with a Mac running Leopard :

1. Download garo34 print driver from Canon's support site here.
2. Download the iPF610/iP710 Leopard print driver from Canon here.
3. Double-click on the garo34_osx.hqx file that you downloaded.
4. A folder named Driver is created; open it and double click on "GARO Installer for X".
5. Enter a name and password of an administrator account on your Mac and click OK.
6. When the GARO Installer for X window appears, click on Continue.
7. Click Continue.
8. Click Continue.
9. Click Agree.
10. Click Install.
11. When the installation is complete, click on the Restart button.
12. When your system has restarted, double-click on the iPF610_710_Driver_OSX_10.5_Ver1.10.hqx file you downloaded.
13. A folder named iPF610_710_Driver_OSX_10.5_Ver1.10 is created; open it and double-click on "iPF Driver Installer X".
14. Enter a name and password of an administrator account on your Mac and click OK.
15. When the iPF Installer X window appears, click on Continue.
16. Click Agree.
17. Click Install.
18. When the installation is complete, click on the Restart button.
19. When your system has restarted, click on the System Preferences icon on your Dock or select System Preferences from the Apple pull-down menu.
20. When the System Preferences window appears, click on the Print & Fax icon.
21. Click on the + Button underneath the Printers column.
22. Another window will appear; click on the "More Printers" icon.
23. A drop-down window appears; select Canon IP (GARO) from the pull-down menu if not already selected.
24. In the "Printer's Address:" field, enter the IP address of your Canon W7250 printer (e.g. 192.168.1.2).
25.In the "Queue Name:" field, enter a name for your printer (e.g. W7250).
26. Click on Add.
27. The W7250 is now your default printer. If you want another printer to be the default, change it in the Print & Fax preference pane.

Voila!

I hope this solves your problem and you found the instructions helful.

Printing Backwards


You must have the Mirror image option turned on.

Open a document and select File>Print.

When the Print window opens, select the "Preferences" or "Properties". button.

Click on the Advanced tab. Look for the Mirror Image option. If it says "On", click on it and you will get a drop down menu to change it to "Off".

(BTW, the Mirror Image is used for printing iron-on transfers.)

Mac Leopard OS: Can't print from photo tray


Here's the trick. It took me an hour to figure this puzzle out myself. DO NOT select the Print icon at the bottom of iPhoto. Do NOT select Print from the File menu. DO select EXPORT from the File menu. Select the HP Photosmart Mac tab Select HP Photosmart Print.app from the app selector. Click the Export button. HP Photosmart Print.app will load with a new print dialog box. Make all necessary selections. This is where you can select the Photo Tray as the tray for the printer to take paper from. This solved MY problem! Let us know if this helps you!

Printing Backwards like a mirror image


You need to change the printer properties.

You can do this a few ways:

  • Click File , Print , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print , Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click Print , Properties , then click Printer Assistant .
  • Click the Taskbar Printer icon.
  • Right-click the applicable 3740 icon in the Printers folder, then click the Printer Preferences button.


Click on the "Basics" tab.

The 3rd option under "orientation" will say "mirror image".

Make sure this is un-checked.
