SOURCE: Tops of letters are cut off when printing.

This is usually caused by clogged or burned out printhead nozzels. You can try putting the unit through a couple cleaning cycles. If that does not help, then replace the cartridge with a new HP BRAND cartridge. Do not trust refilled or compatible cartridges in this case. The heating elements in the individual nozzels can burn out causing your type of problem. Let me know one way or the other Ed

SOURCE: Printer does not print whole document

In 'Print Preview' look at the margins, and see if anything is too close to the edge of the paper. If it is, then set your margins further from the edge, or drag graphics further from the edge, etc.

To correct the margins that are set to close to the edge of the paper, open the document in Microsoft Word and follow these steps:

  1. Make sure that you are using the same printer driver that gave you the error in Microsoft Word Viewer.
  2. In Word, on the File menu, click Page Setup.
  3. Click OK.

    You receive a warning dialog box about the unprintable regions.
  4. Click the Fix button.
  5. Save and close the document.
You can now open and print the document in Word Viewer without receiving the error message.

SOURCE: printer cuts off bottom of words

I think Its not a printer problem. I guess you must see the borders you have used in Ms Word (if thats you re using).

SOURCE: Last line or two of print gets cut off

I have seen this suggested in a HP Support Forum. See if it solves your problem:

1. Go to your printers folder, right-click on (the network connected) printer that you are having the problem with and select "Properties"
2. When the properties window opens, click on the "Ports" tab.
3. Near the bottom of the Ports tab window is a check box for "Enable bidirectional support", uncheck it and click "OK"

SOURCE: deskjet 3940 won't print using microsoft wordpad but works otherw

You will kick yourself !
It drove me crazy for 3 days and I had tried everything ! reloading the software, full system restore and pulled what little hair I have OUT !
I had exactly the same problems my printer which is an HP Photosmart 2610 all in one,would print photos and everything else EXCEPT anything from wordpad,notepad or similar ! the pages were coming out blank !
Wait for it !
The solution is so so simple !
As wordpad docs are only usually in BLACK.I decided to change the colour to blue and lo and behold it worked !
Simply my black cartridge was empty ! upon refilling Absolutely everything printed fine !
Sometimes the most simple solution we cannot see !
I hope this has been helpfull to you..............
Regards

Check carefully that you have specified it to use the # 10 and that the format does not include a wide margin. If that fails, try printing the Return address 'right justified' and see what happens.

Sounds like a cleaning issue.

Printing is off center on the HP 6540. The image or page being printed is cut off on the right margin and on the bottem of the page.


ok, most likely your printer cartridges are off. In order to fix this, you can use windows to align them. Click start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes, and right click the printer thats giving you trouble. Then go to properties. Next, go to the services tab, and click align the cartridges, and continue from there.

Bottom of page is cut off sometimes printing from vista computer


Hi- I'll try to solve this.

Go to the start menu and open the Control Panel. Double click on Printers. Right click the L7580 printer and choose "Printing Preferences" On the preferences window click on the "Advanced" tab. Make sure "Advanced Printing Features" is set to "Enabled" Under "Printer Features" turn "Minimize Margins" to "On"

This should solve the issue. If minimize margins is off, it will cut it off at the bottom.

Sato CL 480e not printing clearly...


Your platen roller (the black rubber roller) isn't smooth in that spot. Maybe it has be nicked or cut there or has something stuck onto it. If it's cut you will have to replace it, otherwise try cleaning it with high percentage isopropyl alcohol.

Using the cutter


you want to print borderless on a cutsheet media? you just have to select and 'cheat' the printer in the printer properties, in there choose roll on the paper source option then enable the cutter and choose double cut on printer's set-up menu on the panel, then it'll cut before and after the printing to make it borderless from top to bottom and from edge to edge. just be sure that the cutsheet media is long enough so that the printer can still hold the media as it finishes the printing or else it'll be a waste, cause the printer wont finish the image. and take note that the epson sp9600 has a limitation in printing borderless, it'll only print borderless on (12", 17", 24", 36:, and 44") media size only i think there's also 14". trust me it'll work, ive done it! :P
