Compressed print is either a font selection issue or a call for a "SI" (Shift In printer control code)

I suspect the problem can be fixed by going into the printer menu and printing out the printer settings.

Look at the default font and see if it is set to 17,1 or 15.X cpi spacing. If it is then that's the problem.

Change the font to a 10 or 12 cpi spacing (Character per inch).

If the setting is fine, then send me a "Print to File" and I can tell yoi if the software is controling the printer. My address is [email protected]

Also, check the application you are using to generate the data file. Make sure you have the correct "Point" size selected for the font.

We received a cople of faxes from different sources. There are lines down all the pages except the top (there is readable text there) and the lines are from the letters (like they have been stretched) like...


That sounds exactly like the sending fax is document is stalling, so a single line across the page gets sent for a few seconds. You can easily check your own machine's scan and print quality by putting anything in the doc feeder and copying it.
To test the print section alone, use the menus (or I think your model has a separate Report button) to print out the Help list.
It's possible that both your sending correspondents have slick, hard document feeder rollers, but you'd think they would have heard complaints from others. I can't think of anything at your end that would stretch out your prints, and there's no Bulletin about it on Brother's service website.
On the off chance you have a glitch in your machine's memory fouling it up, you can clear it out. This page has instructions for clearing out only the image memory (91) or all of it (01). It may or may not help, but only takes a couple of minutes to try.

Enlarge and print pictures with a lexmark 6675


You can expand your image to multiple pages, so you can stretch an 8.5x11 image to close to 18x24, by selecting Poster (in the copy menu), and 2x2.

After deep cleaning the print heads, it will only print one page


This sounds like the print head alignment is not stabilized and may indicate you need a new print head ($$$). Try looking in the Service Manual.

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan


1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

Can't print to the edge of the page


I don't know many inkjet printers that can print to the edge of the page on all four sides. The area in which the rollers feed the paper often can't be printed to and neither can the very bottom.

Turn off the device after removing the printhead After removing the printhead, turn off the device, wait about 20 seconds, and turn it on again without the printhead installed. After it has restarted, reinsert the printhead.

it will go through this long routine of perhaps 20 min or so. after its compleate it should print great.

Distorted image printing from InDesign to Xerox Phaser 8560


Have you tried a different driver? Most of those phaser printers have a PS driver loaded, See if there are PCL drvers for that product, and try that. I went on the Xerox.com site and they have both PS and PCL 6 and PCL 5 drivers, I believe one of those will help your problem.
Now that being said, If you are getting the stretching on other programs, then the problem is the drum motor encoder is getting contaminated with silicon lubricant from the maintenance kit. That will cause that problem, But since you are saying it is with one specific program, I suspect a different driver will correct the problem.

Need to know what OS you are using - are you printing PCL or postscript. How are the computers connecting to the printer network or direct connection?
