Problem Priniting on a Non Standard Paper Format with IP5200
I am trying to print onto an extended piece of A4 paper. The dimensions of the paper are 21x42 cm, so instead of being 29.7 cm long the paper is 42 cm long.
Using different programs (Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop) I have set up a custom page setup to match my page dimensions. Then in the printer dialog of the IP5200 I also select my Custom size in the 'Paper Handling Option' under 'destination paper size' and try to print. However the printer driver seems to ignore my setup and the print comes out wrong (as if it has reverted to the default A4 portrait settings).
It seems impossible that the printer driver is unable to handle a custom paper size, my 10 year old epson did it no problems. Thanks for any help.

Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menu next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
probably itsa different size and this is the issue ..cause the actual paper does not have much to do with cause most printers work with all kinda paper *** long as it is the right dimension in format ...A4 in general ... so ...print your logo on paper that will be detected...you can also make a trial first ...
Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.
1: Remove Cartridge 2: Unplug the AC Power Cord 3: Hold down the RESUME button 4: Release RESUME after plugging in the AC Power cord. 5: Press the RESUME once within 5 seconds and release the RESUME . 6: Press and HOLD RESUME for two seconds or more and release it. 7: Press and HOLD RESUME for two seconds or more and release it. 8: Unplug AC Power Cord to set data. Try this I found it doing a search on your machine, that foam was called a blotter, and it should work without it, good luck
this sounds like a bad black ink cart, or the fuser rolls built into the printer are dirty.
you can swap out a black cart to test that theory, you can also just print a single blank page (no text or graphics) onto a piece of glossy paper and see if there is anything there after its gone thru the printer.
if the piece of paper has stuff on it it had to come from the rollers inside the printer.
service required,unless your comfortable changing out parts in your printer.
Load the custom size paper in Paper Tray 5 (Bypass Tray). The Tray 5 screen will be displayed on the Touch Screen.
Select [Non Standard Size] from the column on the left.
Select the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to modify the X dimension of the custom paper size. The value range is from 147.32 to 457.2 mm (5.8 to 18.0 inches).
Select the [Right] or [Left] arrow button to modify the Y dimension of the custom paper size. The value range is from 147.32 to 297.2 mm (5.8 to 11.7 inches).
Select the appropriate paper type from the Paper Type column on the left.
Select [Tray5] from the paper supply section under the [Basic Copying] tab.
Make any other required selections for the job from the Basic Copying tab on the Touch Screen.
Place the original(s) in the Document Feeder or a single original on the Document Glass.
Press the [Start] button on the Control Panel to copy
hope this helps!!!
The printer may be trying to draw paper from a source other than the paper tray. Many printers have a hatch or slot in the front or on the side in which one can load non-standard paper sizes and envelopes. It may be trying to print there. Try to locate this place and put a few pieces of paper in there.
