This sounds like an Microsoft Excel issue. The Windows printer driver controls how printing is done regardless of your printer settings.
Excel controls the format of your page with column widths and line height. Depending on your version of Excel, after selecting your print range and your margins, you will need to go to Page Setup and select "Fit to" -- select 1 page wide and a larger number of pages tall.
Normally this is a software control (application) for example Word. For example, on the Home menu of the Word screen, about midway across the screen, you will see the character spacing blocks, just to the right of those you will see a small box with up and down arrowheads. This is the box to click on to set the line spacing.
Here's what worked for me: (I'm using a black ink cartridge, but my 'printer properties' were set for a color cartridge, thus basically sending a '3-color signal' to my printer; making it print in triple vertical.)
Go to Settings > Control Panel > Printers. Right click on your printer, and click Properties. Click the Cartridge Maintenance tab, then click Install / Change Cartridge. Select the cartridge you are using in the drop-down list, and click Continue. Print an Alignment Page. If this dosen't work, close everything and try it again: I had to do it twice to get mine to work. Hope this helps!
Go to the start menu and open the Control Panel. Double click on Printers. Right click the L7580 printer and choose "Printing Preferences" On the preferences window click on the "Advanced" tab. Make sure "Advanced Printing Features" is set to "Enabled" Under "Printer Features" turn "Minimize Margins" to "On"
This should solve the issue. If minimize margins is off, it will cut it off at the bottom.
Check the front paper exit rollers for fit and alignment also the paper deck guides close to the planten area, if the printer is dropping print vertically down one side of the page, this can be caused by debris or anything that lifts the caridge assy the slightest bit, also check the print head seating and ribbin cable for proper alignment
There may be a dip switch somewhere on the printer which enables/disables the extra linefeed. If both CR (carriage return) & LF (linefeed) are both enabled, you will get the double-spacing.
In years past, I've run a few different Epson dot matrix printers, and seems like they had such a dip switch.
Also, on the software end, you may be able to disable either CR or LF- check in your printer driver software.
