Canon Imagerunner C3200 - printing problems

We have a Canon Imagerunner C3200. The actual printed page is printing about 1/2 inch lower on the paper than it should be - so, the bottom of the page is cut off and extra white space at top. I have checked the paper tray to make sure it is snug against the paper. Margin adjustment is at 3/8 (does not allow 0). Any suggestions?

Check the feeder rollers and make sure they are grabbing the page at the right time. Sometimes rollers cna get slick and spin for a moment before picking up the paper. This can cause the timing to be off when the page is fed through.

Hello Landscapeman ,

You need to specify the paper type when the print dialog box appears. Heavy glossy paper needs to spend more time in the fuser so that the toner is fixed.

There are all kinds of printers and printing problems. It’s important to note at the outset that for safety reasons you should unplug your printer if you plan on working inside the device for any reason. In addition to the electrical hazard, printers (especially laser printers) can also be very hot on the inside, so use caution.

There are a few general troubleshooting steps you should take first, regardless of your printing problem. These will help solve most everyday printing issues.

Reboot. You’ll be amazed at how many printing problems simply disappear after you restart your computer. Also, reboot your printer. Sometimes, for no good reason, a printer will become wedged (it just stops communicating with the computer). Turning your printer off for a few seconds, and then back on, will usually get you going again.

Read the printer’s lights. Doing this can provide you with very useful clues. Is the power light on? Is the paper feed light blinking? Don’t be afraid to press buttons on the printer: Turn it off and on, reset the paper feed, and take the printer offline and bring it online again.

Check your physical connections. Is the power cord loose? Does the cable from the printer to the PC have a secure connection at both ends? Look at the connector pins on your cable. Are they bent? Try another cable if you have one. Check the print cartridges and printing mechanism. Is anything blocking the printer? Are the cartridges firmly in place?

Print a Windows test page. Access your printer’s Properties dialog box (follow the directions given above). Select the General tab and click the Print Test Page button. If nothing else, you can find out a good deal about your printer’s problem. If the test page prints, you have a problem with your application, not with Windows. Answer the questions as prompted and work through Windows’ Print Troubleshooter as needed.

Drivers. Verify drivers on the Details tab in the Printer Properties dialog box. Make sure the installed driver corresponds with your actual printer. Check the manufacturer’s Web site for updated drivers and browse the support pages on the site while you’re there.

You change the margins in the word processor application, not the printer. You did not list what application you are using.

In microsoft word, you click on "file", then click "page setup". This will give you the correct dialog to change your margins. Really simple and easy.

For futher questions like these, use google search.

here is one i found using google:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HP052292751033.aspx

All I did was type "how do i change the margins in microsoft word" into google. It will be a lot faster searching on google than waiting for a fixya reply.

You prob have a few small pieces of photo paper jammed in the printer somewhere. Try to take something small that you can push through the printer to make sure there is nothing hidden jamming the printer.
