Question about HP LaserJet 2420dn Printer

1 Answer

Hp2420 does not print correct ranges in all apps.

Recently had an HPLaserJet 2420 start printing incorrect page ranges in Word 2003, shaving margins in Lotus notes and both range and shaving problems in MS Excel 2003. We are running MS WINXP sp2. Mcaffee virus scan. I have two other identical printers that are not acting up using PCL 6 driver. I have worked around the problem with a PS, PCL and HP1200 driver each on different applications. The goal is to get back to one driver for all and maybe even figure out the cause.

I have found the solution. Quite simple. In the printers properties box select the general tab. Click on the on the printing preferences button. Selecting the Paper/Quality tab, observe the Print Task quick sets. These all need to have Default print settings selected. In our case, they were not. This enabled all applications to print correctly once again.

Web site designers create Web pages for display on a monitor, not for users to print on 8.5- x 11-inch pieces of paper. This becomes obvious the first time you try to print a Web page. Content you need may get chopped off by the right printer margin, whereas content you don’t need, such as the site’s copyright information, will print on its own sheet of paper. Fortunately, you can avoid such problems with a little foresight.

Before printing any Web page, open Internet Explorer’s File menu and select Print Preview. The current Web page will appear on-screen exactly as it will print on paper. Scan the preview carefully. If it appears that some content is chopped off by the right margin, click the Page Setup button located directly to the right of the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. In the resulting Page Setup dialog box, adjust the left and right margins so that each is set to 0.25 inches. The extra inch of space you gain by resetting the margins should provide just enough room to accommodate all of the content on most sites. Click OK to save the changes and return to the Print Preview window.

Next, scan the preview to determine which pages contain the content you want to print. Take note of those pages and click the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. Locate the Print Range heading and select the Pages option. Type the number of the first page you want to print in the From field and type the number of the last page you want to print in the To field. For instance, if you want to print just the first three pages of a Web page’s content, type 1 in the From field and type 3 in the To field. If your browser doesn’t have To and From fields, type the range of pages (such as 1-3) in the corresponding field. Make sure your printer has paper and click Print.

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.

Check Your Margins
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.

It may be the formatter circuit board.
I had the same issue witha 2420. The problem was intermittent... Turn the printer off and on and the problem MIGHT go away (for a while).
I replaced the formatter pcb and the machine has been running well for days.
Good Luck.

Sounds like you need to go into Properties in the Brother, possibly in advance options for a setting that over-rides the printer settings for the page settings.

What happens if you choose a 1.5" right margin in the document.

Paper is out of range Samsung printer when printing in word it always says paper out of range


Check your default margins on the printer. Open Word, open a document, click on File then Print. When the printer's printing window opens, click on properties. You should now be able to see the Margins or a Margins tab in the window. Check you margin settings. If they are below .5" in any of the 4 margin settings then you printer probably cannot print the document. Change the settings and save them as the default settings.

You may also try updating your printer driver, too, depending on how old your printer is.

You should also check the settings for the paper type you are using. If it is not the normal 8.5" X 11", then you will need to change this setting as well.

Hope this answers your problem.

Dear Glenn27,
As you mentioned, printer works fine normally however the issue is only while printing emails.. so I would like to know the email program that is in use .. I mean, do you use Outlook, Outlook Express or webmail or Lotus notes etc..
If this is a repeated question then I would like to apologies as we experts are not allowed to peep into other experts' solutions so I cannot see the responses by the previous expert.

Also please let me know the following printer settings ..
AUTO WRAP, RIGHT MARGIN, LEFT MARGIN,

What happens when you copy the email text to a standard text editor like Notepad or Ms Word and then try printing .. does it still print with right margin extended?

Waiting for your response.

Regards,
Srinivas
