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.

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
press key with windows logo(bottom of keyboard, both sides of spacebar),choice printers and faxes,find printer your using(if you have more than one listed, or the one with check by it),double click, when document box opens,click on printer(upper left at top of box),under page layout choose # of pages per sheet...2 will give you 2 pages side by side,4 will split the sheet into 4 quarters.
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.
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
