Prints from DOS programs do not have a "page length" setting of their own, nor do dot matrix printer have a page length of their own.

Page feed is achieved by sending a special control code (^L), and the meaning of ^L can be set through specific escape codes that the DOS program has to know.

My guess is that you need to tell the DOS program the page size in lines or inches, and maybe instruct it to send a page feed command after each page.

You can try directly programming the printer, but if the DOS program is sending out the wrong codes, this is not going to help. Anyway, here goes. Good luck!

Scanned document is 8.5 x 14 even though setting says 8.5 x 11


You probably have the PDF programme page size settings incorrectly set to the larger size = why only able to print some of the length. As a solution, use a photo programme (Photoshop, Elements or the excellent FREE Faststone Image Viewer to resize the image so it will then print on your paper but so doing will reduce, slightly, the width to suit the revised shorter length to preserve the proportions/balance between length and width.

When printing invoices, the first page skips one line, the second page 3 lines and so on throwing all of the invoices off. Any ideas on how to fix this?


Set the page length at the printer's settings according to the real page length. If your paper is punched on it's sides, you can compute the real length knowing that the punches are 1/2 inch each other (or you can simply measure it). For more details, please specify the type of software you are using (ms-dos, windows, etc).

Printer won't print 17''x76'' long Banner on Canvas


What is the page setup in the Indesign Program?  Sounds like is is trying to print to the standard paper size of 8.5 X 11.  See if the program allows you to change the page set up to 12"X66" to match the banner.  
Hope this helps...

Advances ticket too far after printing.


your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
