    I have a scan of a document that shows the problem. Is there a way I can send it for review?

    What's my remedy?

  • Guy See Apr 01, 2008

    I troubleshot this tonight by hooking the printer to an older computer and the problem remains. Something I left out, the problem is only with Black Ink, not the Color Ink.

  • Guy See Apr 01, 2008

    The black cartridge is brand new.

    I'm not which direction it is occuring but in one direction, the entire line (or group of lines) prints fine. But the paper "ratchets" and the heads changes direction it blanks out this 1/2 in block and then continues to print fine.

    It does this consistenly on alternating "ratchets".

Hello.

You should setup the margin setting your documents, and then preview to see if it is correct.

If this not solve the issue, please consider reimoving the printer driver and restart the system and install the driver again. but disconnect the printer when doing this and wait until the system prompted you to connect.

    If the first part of the print is missing and starts fading in at half of the document , it can be a problem with the cartridges. when did you install new cartridges?

How do I change margin setrtings foe Lexmark P4350


If you are preparing to print a document that you have created in Microsoft Word, you may be concerned that all the text on the page will print exactly as you see it on your screen. This is not always the case. You can adjust your print margins to ensure that your text prints on each page exactly the way you would like it to appear.

Opening Your Document
Open your Microsoft Word document by double-clicking the Word icon on your desktop. If you do not see the icon on your desktop, then you can locate it where it is buried on your "Start" menu. Click "Start," followed by "All Programs." Then click "Microsoft Office," followed by "Microsoft Office Word." A new document will open on your screen. Click the "Office Button," followed by "Open." Scroll through the files listed, and double-click the one you would like to print. It will open on your screen.

By default, your page margins are set to 1-inch margins on the top, bottom, right and left of your page. You can check your margins or change them by clicking "Page Layout," followed by the "Margins" button.

Select New Margins
Select a different margin size, such as "Narrow," which indicate 1/2-inch margins, or "Wide," which indicate one-inch margins on the top and bottom and two-inch margins on the left and right. You also can select "Moderate," which indicate one-inch margins on the top and bottom and 3/4-inch margins on the left and right. Finally, you can select "Mirrored," which indicates one-inch margins for the top, bottom and outside. The inside margins are set at 1 1/4 inches.

Print Your Page
Print your page. Press "Control" plus the "P" button. The printer dialog menu will come up. Make sure that "All Pages in Range" is selected. Press "OK." If your printer cannot print your new margins, then a new menu will pop up telling you to adjust your margins.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

On my Laserjet 3015, in Microsoft Word, if I set top, bottom, left, and right margins to 1", on the printed page, the margins print as Top 1", Left 15/16", Right 1-1/8", and Bottom...


Hi,
The default paper selection/ size in MS Word is 'letter'. you may have designed the document on letter size and while printing you have A4 size paper in the printer.
So, Make sure that you design the document on the same paper size (such as A4, which is commonly used). Secondly, while printing don't print the document directly. From the Print dialogue option choose the exact paper size and un-check (de-select) any option of paper resizing (if available). You will have the documents printed exactly as designed.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I am a teacher. We have Dell computers with windows 7 on them. Recently our school district downloaded Microsoft Office 10. Since the new microsoft office, my xerox phaser 8500 is printing strange. ...


Hi fsaltzman,

You need to check the margin settings in the print preview option, make sure you decrease the margins that are set by default and try printing a test page , this should work fine.

On the File menu, you need to click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
Here you can adjust the margins as per your convenience.

To View page margins :-
  1. You need to go on the Tools menu, select Options, and then select the View tab.
  2. Under Print and Web Layout options, select the Text boundaries check box.

The page margins appear in your document as dotted lines.


You can use these dotted lines to correct your margins so that your student's assignments are not cut off and there is no large margin as you have mentioned in your question.


You can view page margins in either Print Layout or Web Layout view only, and they do not appear on the printed page.

Hope this helps

HP Deskjet 5650 is printing off-center. The printing field is shifted to the right, so the right margin is non-existent and I lose a bit of the printing. How can I fix it?


I think the horizontal printing starting point can be adjusted by holding down buttons (??) when powering up. Right now my left margin is 3/8 inch too big -- photos have that much white space on left margin with borderless printing. I am trying to figure out the key combination.

Printing


sounds like a document composing issue, not the printer, which usually prints what is sent..

and you may want to print a test page, first, to see that this works for you.
