My printer inconsistently cuts off the sides off the documents

My HP Officejet 8500 printer inconsistently cuts off the sides of the documents. The print preview shows the complete document but when I print, there is oftentimes a side margin that is cut off entirely. I've readjusted margins. I've rebooted. I'm flummoxed and annoyed by this!!!

SOURCE: Margins not recognised

Hi lerona - I have a 5600C series HP printer. You might try these tips:
Do a Print Preview to be sure the document looks right on your screen, then in Print Setup, down in the Zoom box check the Scale to Paper Size to be sure it isn't set for the wrong paper size. There's an arrow to scroll to the size you're printing on.

Then click Properties, then the Paper Quality tab. There's an item that says "minimize margins". You could try printing with the box checked (if it's not now), or unchecked (if it IS now) and see the difference. Click the Effects tab and be sure the "normal size" box says 100%, and that there's no check mark in the "borderless printing" box.

I print documents all the time, as well as photos, smaller sized items, cards, etc., and have had no trouble with the margins printing differently than my Print Preview shows on my screen. I hope these tips help you. Good luck, and feel free to email me if you have any success with my suggestions.

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: Setting margins on printer

Hi,
Well, by now you may have found the solution, however, make sure that in MS WORD under File > Page Setup > A4 is selected, and if you still this prompt (error), just click on OK and proceed with printing.

The Laserjet Printers are capable to print upto 5mms from the edge of the border.

Regards,
Nikhil

I am trying to scan multiple pages into one document with the HP Officejet 8500


I believe you can't do that from your HP Software. Trust me. It will only save one scan = one file. But you can do that on other applications like Adobe PDF.
Hope my little answer can save you time and hassle for exploring on how to do it on HP Software. ^_^
I will suggest that concern to HP
