Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer only prints in upper left quadrant of page!

I have double checked all the settings menus, and made sure everything is set to 8.5 X 11, full page, full magnification, etc., and the printer reduces the image to fit the top left quadrant of the page. I have also double checked the settings on my mac laptop, and my husband has the same problem when trying to print from his. HELP! This is confounding!

To check if this is a hardware issue, please print a menu settings page. The purpose of this diagnostic is to check if this is a software issue or a hardware issue.



1. Press Menu to display Menus.
2. Press "down" until the "check" appears next to Reports.
3. Press "Check".
4. Press "down" until the "check" appears next to Menu Settings Page.
5. Press "check".
The message Printing Menus Settings appears on the display.
The printer returns to the Ready state after the menu settings page prints.


If the menu settings page printed without the dots, this would be a software issue. In that case, please call our Technical Support Hotline on (800) 539-6275.

It will not print Word documents. it pulls a blank piece of paper through. It will print in notepad


there is something wrong with your Word printer setup. Go to Word, then from the File menu select the Print option and when the print window opens see if the HP deskjet is selected as default printer. Then, in the upper right quadrant theres a button called Advanced Settings, or Prefferences (depending on your Word version). Click that button and check to see if the HP printer is set as On Line, and is set to print odd and even pages. Also, check the margins of the paper. Ink Jet printers cant print over the full page, there's always a need of some margin on each side of the paper, so you'll need to set the margins from all sides on at least 0.5 inches

The page prints to a small version in top left hand corner. everything is set to A4. Have tried all settings Have tried paper feed from back and front. Unable to get it to print a full size A4 page even...


Make sure on the Page Setup tab that the Page Layout says 'Normal-size' and not 'Poster' (poster tries to place four documents on a single printed sheet). If this is not the problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver.

Prints full content on page, but only uses the upper 3rd corner of the page for a full page's worth of content


What software are you printing from? In some cases you may have the page settings incorrect, or telling it to put multiple pages per sheet. So make sure to double check those settings.

Size of page printed small


Check your default paper size on both the document program you are using and the printer. You could have it set for 5X7 and that's what it will figure for, even with 8 1/2X11 paper.

Problem printing full screen


sounds like your printers settings have accidentally been set to print a smaller area. When you print, look into the area that says page settings or properties before you print, you may find the settings altered. If the settings are set to print full page, then post back as we will need to explore other issues. Cheers lilacgerry
