If you are printing from Acrobat Reader or Acrobat Professional, you may find that the print setting, by default has "fit to page" set. And this would mean that the software (acrobat) is scaling your page down when it prints.

That's the most common reason that I've found for the error you are experiencing and particularly from acrobat.

Print scaling adjustments are in the print driver.
They are in different locations depending on the driver. PCL or PS.
But there will be a scaling adjustment within the driver in te properties.
Will have to search through the driver features to find it.

How to shrink document to fit screen size when printing


Scaled Printing
The procedure for specifying a scaling value and printing a document with pages enlarged or reduced to match the document to the paper size is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and select Scaled Printing from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.
figure:Select Scaled Printing for Page Layout on the Page Setup tab
2. Using Page Size, select the page size that was set with your application.
3. Do either of the following to set a scaling factor:
Select a Printer Paper Size.
Select a printer paper size, which is different from the Page Size, from the Printer Paper Size list. If the printer paper size is smaller than the Page Size, the page image will be reduced. If the printer paper size is larger than the page size, the page image will be enlarged.6c3578e0-f243-44b0-aa8e-f7bb7752ed56.jpg

figure:Printer Paper Size on the Page Setup tab
Specify a scaling factor.
Directly type in a value into the Scaling box.


figure:Scaling on the Page Setup tab
The current settings are displayed in the Settings Preview on the left side of the printer driver.
4. Click OK.
When you execute print, the document will be printed with the specified scale.
If the application software with which you created the original has the scaled printing function, configure the settings on your application software. You do not need to also configure the same setting in the printer driver. When Scaled Printing is selected, the Staple Side list box appears grayed out and is unavailable (when Duplex Printing is not selected). When Borderless Printing check box is checked for the Page Layout list, Scaled Printing cannot be selected.
Selecting Scaled Printing changes the printable area.

Hope this helps

Dell 2135 full memory error message cannot print PDF files.

All three replies are incredibly stupid, but especially Frank's. The issue is simply that you're trying to print something that has too much complexity in it for the printer's pre-installed memory to store the final rendering of before printing. The way a laser printer works, unlike an ink jet, it has to take the entire page to be printed and render the final output in memory before the page can be fed through since it doesn't go line by line. If you're trying to print something that has a very complex page in it, such as a full 8x10 photo, the base amount of memory may not be enough. Dell sells a 256MB add-on memory chip you can put in the printer to get around this. Unfortunately the only other way around the issue would be to reduce the complexity of the page; perhaps try printing the PDF scaled down to 70% so the printed output is a lot smaller but also takes up less of the page, meaning the printer may be more likely to be able to fit the page into the existing memory.

How do I access the menu/control panel?

MFP and scanner settings can be changed several ways: through the MFP control panel, the software application in use,
the print driver, MarkVision™ Professional, or the Web pages. Settings changed from the application or print driver apply
only to the job being sent to the MFP.
Changes made to print, fax, copy, and e-mail settings from an application override changes made from the control panel.
If a setting cannot be changed from the application, use the MFP control panel, MarkVision Professional, or the Web pages.

Printed text is very small, not legible and does

Go to to print menu box i.e. press ctrl P. Look for zoom. There you will see "scale to paper size." Here select from the drop down list "no scaling" or "A4" depending your paper size. This shoule correct it.

In case you do not see these on your print menu click "properties" on your printer. In the box that appears look for "scale" and make it 100%. These are the components that control percentage size of original documents printed.

Need to change my print size on my C6280 Photosmart All-in-one printer, make it larger

It depends on what you are printing, but generally this needs to be adjusted in the software you are using.
If you print pictures or photos, you have to find an option to scale the printout up, either during printing, or beforehand.
If you print PDF documents, in the Print dialog box there is an option to "fit printer margins" or "auto-adjust to printer size" or something to that effect in every PDF reader application. If however the document is formatted for your paper size it will not be scaled, and if it's formatted for an even bigger sheet size, it will scale down the printout.
If you print documents from Word, there's no easy way to make the printout bigger - you can change the font size to a larger one in the whole text, but chances are, that this will ruin the text formatting.
In Excel there is an option to scale everything by a given percentage, which will automatically tile the table into as many sheets as necessary. and then the area will be printed on as many paper sheets as necessary to get
There's no one solution, unless your printer driver has an option to do a fixed scaling - but this will usually be sensible only for enlarging printouts that occupy a smaller area on paper, and you want them to use the maximum paper area. I'm sorry, but you have to experiment a bit to get the hang of it.
Good luck!

Incomplete plot from .pdf file - Hp DesignJet 1050C Plus

Was the plot originally done on a size D or E plotter.. A .pdf is generally not a good way to send a plot that has to be done to scale.. Can they re-send the plot in a hpgl format, or a format that you can use in another program, liks ACAD, and then print it through that program? This would provide you with some control, that a pdf document will not allow.

This is just a stab in the dark for me, but I am familiar with plotters in general, just not the many formats to print from..

Can i print the image smaller?

  1. Select the 'Page Setup' tab and under 'Printing Type', select 'Scaled Printing'.


  2. In 'Page Size', select the paper size specified in the application. If you select a size that cannot be selected in your printer, a message will display informing you that the setting has been changed to 'Fit-to-page' printing. Select 'Scaled Printing' again.


  3. In 'Orientation', select the same orientation as specified in the application (either Portrait or Landscape).


  4. In 'Printer Paper Size', select the paper size loaded in the printer. In 'Scaling', the magnification at which the document will print so as to fit exactly on the output paper size will appear as a reference value.


  5. In 'Scaling', specify the percentage. You can select from 20% to 400%.


  6. Click 'OK'.
