How to shrink document to fit screen size when printing


Hi,

Scaled Printing
The procedure for specifying a scaling value and printing a document with pages enlarged or reduced to match the document to the paper size is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and select Scaled Printing from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.

figure:Select Scaled Printing for Page Layout on the Page Setup tab
2. Using Page Size, select the page size that was set with your application.
3. Do either of the following to set a scaling factor:
Select a Printer Paper Size.
Select a printer paper size, which is different from the Page Size, from the Printer Paper Size list. If the printer paper size is smaller than the Page Size, the page image will be reduced. If the printer paper size is larger than the page size, the page image will be enlarged.6c3578e0-f243-44b0-aa8e-f7bb7752ed56.jpg

figure:Printer Paper Size on the Page Setup tab
Specify a scaling factor.
Directly type in a value into the Scaling box.

figure:Scaling on the Page Setup tab
The current settings are displayed in the Settings Preview on the left side of the printer driver.
4. Click OK.
When you execute print, the document will be printed with the specified scale.
Note
If the application software with which you created the original has the scaled printing function, configure the settings on your application software. You do not need to also configure the same setting in the printer driver. When Scaled Printing is selected, the Staple Side list box appears grayed out and is unavailable (when Duplex Printing is not selected). When Borderless Printing check box is checked for the Page Layout list, Scaled Printing cannot be selected.
Tip
Selecting Scaled Printing changes the printable area.

Hope this helps

Printed text is very small, not legible and does


Go to to print menu box i.e. press ctrl P. Look for zoom. There you will see "scale to paper size." Here select from the drop down list "no scaling" or "A4" depending your paper size. This shoule correct it.

In case you do not see these on your print menu click "properties" on your printer. In the box that appears look for "scale" and make it 100%. These are the components that control percentage size of original documents printed.

Need to change my print size on my C6280 Photosmart All-in-one printer, make it larger


It depends on what you are printing, but generally this needs to be adjusted in the software you are using.
If you print pictures or photos, you have to find an option to scale the printout up, either during printing, or beforehand.
If you print PDF documents, in the Print dialog box there is an option to "fit printer margins" or "auto-adjust to printer size" or something to that effect in every PDF reader application. If however the document is formatted for your paper size it will not be scaled, and if it's formatted for an even bigger sheet size, it will scale down the printout.
If you print documents from Word, there's no easy way to make the printout bigger - you can change the font size to a larger one in the whole text, but chances are, that this will ruin the text formatting.
In Excel there is an option to scale everything by a given percentage, which will automatically tile the table into as many sheets as necessary. and then the area will be printed on as many paper sheets as necessary to get
There's no one solution, unless your printer driver has an option to do a fixed scaling - but this will usually be sensible only for enlarging printouts that occupy a smaller area on paper, and you want them to use the maximum paper area. I'm sorry, but you have to experiment a bit to get the hang of it.
Good luck!

Printing too small


Try going to File>page setup and uncheck the shrink to fit setting. You should also be able to preview the printed page in the Print Preview window from your browser and adjust the zoom percentage to modify the scale of the printed page.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Follow the steps below to perform basic print quality troubleshooting.

1. Check your paper and verify that the all-in-one has clean, white, inkjet-rated or multipurpose paper in it. In many cases copier grade papers or paper specifically for Laser printers should NOT be used. These papers are frequently coated and are not intended for dye-based inks. The paper container should also have a brightness and weight listed on it. Generally speaking, the brighter and heavier the paper, the better the printout will look. HP recommends papers with at least 90 brightness and 75 g/m2 (20 pound) ratings.
2. Verify that the all-in-one is on a firm surface that fully supports its weight and does not move as the all-in-one prints. If the all-in-one is placed on a desk or other surface that is free to move or shake as the all-in-one prints, the printout will not look as good as it should.
3. Refilled or remanufactured print cartridges will often produce inferior results. HP will not support any print problems that result from the use of remanufactured and refilled print cartridges since their quality is not in HP's control. If you are using refilled or remanufactured print cartridges, replace them with a new HP print cartridge.
4. Print a self-test page from the all-in-one to verify that the all-in-one is working correctly. If the self-test prints correctly, go to Step 3. If the page does not print correctly, verify that the ink cartridges have ink in them. Then, unplug the power cord from the all-in-one, wait five seconds, and plug it back in. Contact HP for assistance if a self-test page still will not print. To print a self-test page, follow the step below:
5. Press SETUP (or MENU ) until " Print Report " displays, then press ENTER .
6. Examine the self-test page printed by your all-in-one.

i. If the colors are correct and the text is sharp and clear on the self-test page, the problem is not the all-in-one or the print cartridges. The problem is the print settings, the file being printed, or the program you are printing from. Continue to step 7 below.
ii. If the colors on the demo page are not correct or are missing, review HP document Printed Pages Are Missing One or More Colors but No Error Message Appears (buu02176) (in English).
iii.If the printout is not sharp or clear, skip the remaining steps in this section and review the remaining information in this document.

7. Try printing the document again but try changing the print settings by following these steps:

1. Within the application you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . This will bring up the print screen.
2. Verify that the correct printer is selected and then click Properties .
3. On the Quality tab, verify that the correct paper type is selected, and then change the Print Quality setting to Best . Verify the settings on the remaining tabs are correct and then click OK .
4. Print the file you were trying to print again.

i. If the problem is corrected, the problem was the print settings. There is no need to continue troubleshooting.
ii.If the problem still exists, try printing on different paper.

8. Print a different file or image. If you have a file that printed well in the past, try printing that file. Low quality originals will not print very well. Screen captures and images from the internet are often at around 75 dpi. These images are at too low of a resolution to print well. If the self-test page looks good but your image does not, even after changing the print settings, the problem may be the original file. Cheers!!

Is my Dell 1700 Laser Printer photoconductor drum truly fried?


The drum collects used toner for apprx. 30,000 pages. After that, the printer recommends that it be changed to prevent used toner from spilling internally into the printer's mechanisms. The whole photoconducter/drum can be replaced. The new part from Dell is apprx. $50.00 US. 
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Printer_Accessories/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=310-8710#Overview

You might have reset the "counter" for the photoconducter. Ever  have a water  fillter with an electronic timer? You replace the filter, then you reset the timer? Perhaps you reset the timer without actually replacing the filter. So to speak. :)
The question you should ask yourself is: would I like to spend $30 - $60 [it's cheaper for refurbished parts- Google it] replacing the drum head on a 7 year old printer, or would I rather invest that in a new printer?
