When I print a screen from a company(say ATT) or a receipe from Kraft co.
and I want to keep that copy, the printing is so
small, one needs a magnifing glass to see the print. Is it possible to enlarge it? I have tried everything.
All other printings are about normal.

there should be a icon for expanding the original under the copy, number of copies screen. That will work for copying a document. If printing a document from a PC, use software such as WORD is increase the size of an image or text.
Have/had the same problem: Getting "paper size mismatch" on the C4280 status
screen, after we got a paper jam. Every time we hit OK and put in paper,
Message about "Now printing Alignment page", it feeds through quickly, with
nothing printed on the page and reverts back to Paper size mismatch. Finally
got rid of the error, not sure how, but now when I try to copy anything, we only
get the lower right postion of the document that I'm trying to copy. Printing
from the PC seems ok. Powered off and back on, and it is back to P"now
printing alignment page, quick feed through and "paper size mismatch" error.
When copying directly from the glass panel,it will only print a quarter of
the page -however it prints and coorectly if we print directly from the
The problem is the paper size sensors. Remove the plastic access panel that
is for access to the rollers in the back and has 4 rollers on it. There are two
papaer sensors attached to the printer circuit board (PCB). The control arm for
the sensor is a small plastic piece that extends slightly into the paper path
above the PCB. The plastic can be broken when you are removing a paper jam. I
stuck a small piece of a match stick in the sensor to keep it open (as though a
wider piece of paper was passing throught the printer). I can't switch to
smaller card stock, etc, but who cares, it works.
The copying problem is caused because the C4280 will not scan correctly until
after it does the alignment phase.
The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.
When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).
One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)
Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.
The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.
before you print, select all the text and resize it to a higher number (say from 12 point to 14 point) then print, (but dont save). that may help. The problem is, your resolution is larger than the actual size of the item, so you are getting a 'magnified' look at the screen. So anything normal on screen will be smaller when printed.
Measure the distance between them and let me knw what it is. Make sure to measure from the same point to the next same point. For example name on letter is "Att: Mr Ed" you will measure from the left bottom of the "A" on "Att:" to the left bottom of the next instance of "Att:"
Most web browsers have an option to change the text size on the page you are viewing. In IE8 it is accessible through the Page menu, Text Size. It defaults to Medium, and there are 2 smaller sizes and 2 larger sizes available.
reinstall the software from a fresh download from the web
get the reset routine from the epson site...when you turn it on you must hold some stupid button combination to reset...
if you refilled the cartridges with non - epson ones they will cause problems with this printer....a Russian guy has solved this by writing a small program to reset the counter within the cartridge... find it on the web
Assuming that normal printing is fine, This is due to the size of the print in the email. To output larger print you'll have to copy the email into a document, change the size and then print the document.
What program are you printing from? I noticed that sometimes IE7 will print screen content the way you described. The only work-around I have is to copy and paste the content to Word (or other word processor), and format it accordingly.
