Printing only left side of a page, right side totally blank

What application are you using to print text? Word?
Try a simple application, like Notepad or Wordpad, to print some simple two-liner text.
Does printer print ALL the text on left side or just the half of printable material?
Even if you are indicating that page size is correct, looks to me some problem with the selection of print area.

Epson PX650 not printing the full A4 page of my receipts, cutting off on right hand side

I cannot print a whole A4 page although the printer is set to A4 - ie labels only print one column

You can do several tests to understand where the problem is.1. Try to print a test page - Go to Printer Devices - Right click your printer and select Properties - Click Print Test Page button like on the picture below
11_29_2011_9_40_40_pm.jpgIf the result is still like your description, you are facing hardware problem like defective toner cassette or drum.2. Try printing from different sources - print a page from your browser like Internet Explorer - print a page from your Office Application like MS Office or OpenOffice - print from notepad - print from Image viewer application
If your printer prints only the left half of the page - this is definitely hardware problem. If you receive different results from different sources, find out wich one of them does the described printout and try to discover the setting that causes the problem and restore it.Sometimes when we talk about MS Office this problem is caused by Print Area setting. You can just Clear this Print Area from Page Layout like on the picture below.
I hope this was useful information for you!11_29_2011_9_56_30_pm.jpg

My epson rx420 only prints the left hand side of any document ??? Can any one help please . many thanks

have you set the page setup in document is same with page setup at print setup. Some new epson printer use paper sensor to measure the paper width. If page setup wider than actually paper inserted, the printer will print only half page. example : Your document 10 cm wide, page setup 20 cm, and you insert 10 cm paper wide. It will print only half of 10 cm, 5 cm.

Only one half of page prints.

My suggestion would be to totally un-install the printer and erase all traces of the driver(s). Search for them after the un-intall and erase them manually.

Re-install the printer and driver...reboot if nessasary...align the print a test pattern...then try and print your document. It might just be a corrupted driver...some would suggest just installing over the existing driver...but I've found doing it that way gives you the best chance of it working the first time.

Move envelope/A4 lever near paper output tray until the letter L registers on display. Print in this mode and you should have full page printed.

I've had a look at the user manual (which was very vague) but found that under the "Product Information" > "Control Panel Functions" there's an option to have A4 or 10x15cm sized paper output on the printer control panel. Make sure that the A4 selection is lit before you copy.

Hopefully that will help resolve the issue.

the paper was not going in straight, I packed the tray with lots of paper and adjusted the paper lever tighter. Goes nicely now.
