Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

My printer -X1185 prints the page with a 3 inch blank area on the left side and some of the right side printing is off the page. This is typical in my e mail page, and even if I center the letter on screen, using the scroll bar at the bottom does not correct the printed image.

    O.K. gentlemen, I was expecting to solve this problem with help from the manufacturer, have rethought my position and will accept the web mail offer for $ 9:95. I really dont think this is complex problem, since it didnt always behave this way. I`m afraid your premium Assistance geniuses will cost me more than the printer did. Thanks, sincerely Ray C.Couture

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.

Printing only left side of a page, right side totally blank


What application are you using to print text? Word?
Try a simple application, like Notepad or Wordpad, to print some simple two-liner text.
Does printer print ALL the text on left side or just the half of printable material?
Even if you are indicating that page size is correct, looks to me some problem with the selection of print area.

My hp deskjet 6940 inkjet printer doesn't show me level of ink in cartridge


Print a diagnostic page If the steps above have not helped, print and evaluate a diagnostic page to see if the cartridges or the printer is causing the problem.
  1. Make sure the printer is on and loaded with unused, plain, white paper.
  2. Press and hold the Power button and then press the Cancel button. Release both buttons. The diagnostic page prints. Figure 1: Power and Cancel buttonsc00584735.gif 1 - Cancel button 2 - Power button
Step 4: Note which cartridges printed which areas of the diagnostic page You must identify which cartridge printed which part of the diagnostic page, so that if you find defects on the page, you will know which cartridge is the problem. However, you can install different combinations of print cartridges in your printer, and different cartridge combinations print different diagnostic page patterns. Your diagnostic page may not look exactly like the picture below, but the right and left cartridges will print in the same areas of the page no matter which cartridges are installed. Figure 2: Diagnostic page layout (the patterns in each area may look slightly different on your page)c00584715.gif 1 - Printed by the right cartridge 2 - Printed by the left cartridge NOTE: If you are printing in reserve mode (one cartridge is missing), the missing cartridge's area of the diagnostic page will be blank. Step 5: Check ink levels NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another product, the ink level indicator is inaccurate or unavailable. Look in the middle of the diagnostic page. The bars with "E" (for "empty") and "F" (for "full") at each end show the ink levels in the cartridges. As ink is used, the solid color changes to a faded color.

HP 2840 will not print on 3 inches of left side of page


Take the toner cartridge out, shake it back and forth, and turn it around in a circle a few time. Put it back in the priter, and print. Order a new toner cartridge.

If this is an inkjet printer, ignore this response.

Ricoh 1224c prints on left side only - Blank on right side


well if its just on the black then it might be the black drum see if it does the same on the color from copying and printing. If it does the same in color then its not the drums it may be the developers, but you wont know untill you test the color if it only happens in black and white its definitely a problem with the drum.

I've printed many photos and all worked fine until now. The left side of the picture is cut off and 3/4 inch on the right side is blank on my 4X6 prints. What should I do?


First try cleaning the printer using it's clean up function (most printers have one). Also, you may want to clean the print cartridges and make sure you have not selected a printing range smaller than the area you wish to print.

140XiIII left side print right side completely blank


Verify your LCD Display Print Width setting is set wider than your actual label width. The printer will only print to the width of the PRINT WIDTH setting. Also verify any driver or software settings as these override your printer settings.
