CLP300 Print Alignment Problem

Printer increases top margin of text document printed on A4 portrait by 11mm, moving text down on the paper and even off the paper at the foot of the document.
Problem is random but frequent with Word, Excel, Coreldraw and other programes
System used is Windows XP Pro using latest printer driver on P4 Intel PC with max ram
Resetting to default, re-loading drivers, re-installing all makes no change - it keeps on moving the printed area down on the paper

SOURCE: printing jammed on thicker paper

See the manual. It looks as if 120g/m2 is the heaviest paper it can use:
"Set Type to correspond to the paper loaded in the tray from
which you want to print. This will let you get the best quality
printout. If not, print quality may not be acheived as you want.
Thin: Less than 19 lb (70 g/m2) thin paper.
Thick: 24 lb to 32 lb (90~120 g/m2) thick paper.
Cotton: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) cotton paper such as Gilbert
25 % and Gilbert 100 %.
Plain Paper: Normal plain paper. Select this type if your printer is
monochrome and printing on the 16 lb (60 g/m2) cotton paper.
Recycled: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) recycled paper.
Color Paper: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) color-backgrounded
paper."

SOURCE: Samsung CLP-500 output problems

i have found that removing the toners, and shaking them side to side, while keeping them horizontal, which seems to spread the toner for even distribution. This can sometimes fix the problems with fading prints. hope it helps.
Margins i think might be a problem with the wysiwyg of the program, some don't do it well, but also excel in particular has a shrink to fit page option, you may find the percentage not at 100%. you can also copy an excel table to word and print from that if it is driving you nuts.

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!

When printing a duplex booklet, the printout is reduced in size with larger margins than in original document. How can I get it to print regular size?


It happens when the documents is on A4 size and the printer is set to print on letter size (which is smaller in size). Hence the printer automatically resizes the prints which result in larger margins and print as compared to the actual document.
Therefore, when you print the documents (Press Ctrl+P) you have to select the paper (A4) from the print properties.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a hp photosmart c4280 and whenever i print it says margins are incorrect. how do i set them correctly so i can print documents.


Check the paper size at the printer properties on control panel.
You may be trying to print an A4 document to a printer configured to print on Letter size paper.
The document paper size should match the printer's paper size deffinition.

At college we have a w7200, how can we print across the paper rather than down it, for example a panoramic image across the width of the paper and say 20cm high


Try selecting LANDSCAPE as opposed to PORTRAIT by using the proper print menu in your application rather than the simple print icon from most tool-bars.

You can usually find it in the FILE menus

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.

How to print envelopes on my printer


Use The Recommended Print Area For the best printing results, adjust the top and bottom margins of your document to within the recommended printing area shown below. Click on the paper size listed for the recommended print area settings: A4 / B5 / A5 / 4 x 6 / 4 x 8 / 5 x 7 / Credit Card, Letter and Legal, Envelopes (DL / COM#10)
Caution: When printing is performed outside the recommended printing area, the top and bottom edges of the paper may curl, the print quality may deteriorate, or the printed side may be smudged.
The printer has both the recommended print area and the printable area, according to the paper size.
05sj00144_01.jpg Recommended print area: This indicates the recommended print area.
05sj00144_02.jpg Printable area: Although this indicates the printable area, degradation of print quality may occur.
Note:
  • Set Borderless Printing to print without margins.
  • In Duplex Printing, the printable area of the paper's header is approximately 2 mm narrower than usual.

The print sizes available are dependent on the printers installed.
If you don't have an a3 printer installed on your computer, there won't be a A3 option in word.
if you install a standard pdf printer like cutePDF(simulates printer, but instead of printing document on paper, it generates an adobe pdf-file from the document) the option should become available in your dropdown.
