Question about Computers & Internet

I need to know if there is a way to change the top margin (first print line) on a Lexmark 250DN printer. The first print line is about 1/2 inch from the top. I need to start printing 1/4 inch from the top. Thanks for any help you can provide. George

    What I am doing is writing a COBOL program on the AS/400 i-series platform and sending output to the Lexmark printer. Is there a setting on the printer itself for top of page - where the first line of output is printed.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

You change the margins in the word processor application, not the printer. You did not list what application you are using.

In microsoft word, you click on "file", then click "page setup". This will give you the correct dialog to change your margins. Really simple and easy.

For futher questions like these, use google search.

here is one i found using google:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HP052292751033.aspx

All I did was type "how do i change the margins in microsoft word" into google. It will be a lot faster searching on google than waiting for a fixya reply.

How do I change margin setrtings foe Lexmark P4350


If you are preparing to print a document that you have created in Microsoft Word, you may be concerned that all the text on the page will print exactly as you see it on your screen. This is not always the case. You can adjust your print margins to ensure that your text prints on each page exactly the way you would like it to appear.

Opening Your Document
Open your Microsoft Word document by double-clicking the Word icon on your desktop. If you do not see the icon on your desktop, then you can locate it where it is buried on your "Start" menu. Click "Start," followed by "All Programs." Then click "Microsoft Office," followed by "Microsoft Office Word." A new document will open on your screen. Click the "Office Button," followed by "Open." Scroll through the files listed, and double-click the one you would like to print. It will open on your screen.

Check Your Margins
By default, your page margins are set to 1-inch margins on the top, bottom, right and left of your page. You can check your margins or change them by clicking "Page Layout," followed by the "Margins" button.

Select New Margins
Select a different margin size, such as "Narrow," which indicate 1/2-inch margins, or "Wide," which indicate one-inch margins on the top and bottom and two-inch margins on the left and right. You also can select "Moderate," which indicate one-inch margins on the top and bottom and 3/4-inch margins on the left and right. Finally, you can select "Mirrored," which indicates one-inch margins for the top, bottom and outside. The inside margins are set at 1 1/4 inches.

Print Your Page
Print your page. Press "Control" plus the "P" button. The printer dialog menu will come up. Make sure that "All Pages in Range" is selected. Press "OK." If your printer cannot print your new margins, then a new menu will pop up telling you to adjust your margins.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

The printer is feeding a blank sheet of paper between printed sheets. How do I rectify this?


This causes the printable area on the page to be that much less (10 3/4 or 10 1/2 on an 11 inch page). The software thinks the paper is 11 inches long and keeps track, down to the micro inch, where it is on the paper. When it reaches the 10 1/2 inches, your printer calls the page done and ejects it. However, the software thinks there is still another 1/2 inch to print (usually the footer area). Now when you insert a new sheet of paper, the software finishes printing the rest of the page (normally a blank footer) and form feeds to the next sheet. To correct what the software thinks the paper size is, you need to run the Preferences application and change the default settings. Select the Printer button. In the next window, select the 'Change Defaults....' button. Change both the Document size and the Paper size to a height of 10.875 and click OK. Try a new document to see if the paper size is correct. You may need to go back and change the height a few times until it is correct (the height changes in .125 increments). Usually either 10.875 (for 1/4 inch forced top margin printers) or 10.75 ( for 1/2 inch forced top margin printers) will work.

Envelopes can be printed from tray 1 or 2. Select the type of envelope you are using from the PRINT dialog box or the driver. In your program, set the margins. Typical margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope would be: Return Address Top margin 15mm(0.6 Inch) Left margin 15mm(0.6 Inch), Delivery Address Top margin 51mm(2 Inches) Left margin 89mm(3.5 Inches). For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15mm (0.6 Inch) from the edges of the envelope. Avoid printing on the seams of the envelope. Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the printer fuser. the extra flaps and seals can cause wrinkling, creasing and feed jams, could even damage the fuser.

Lexmark T614 horizontal lines on right the left margins


This sounds like a cartridge problem if you have changed the cartridge and the problem persists I would say it is the positive charge roller inside the printer. If you open the cartridge door and remove the cartridge with the cartridge out starting closing the door and you will see this roller moving down from the top inside of the printer. do not touch this without a glove or lint free cloth. not hard job to change if you can get one in your area if not we have them available.

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
