Question about HP LaserJet 2200 Printer

Problem printing multiple pages on one sheet!

I have created a document in Word that is in Landscape layout. I have made 4 copies of it on the Word page, and I want to print it out as 4 pages on a single A4 sheet of paper.
On the print menu I select 4 pages per sheet, and on properties I make sure that it is in Landscape, but when it prints it is as if the printer has printed the pages as portrait, as each word page is one eigth of the A4 printed sheet.
If I select 2 pages per sheet, they are printed correctly, each page being a landscape quarter of the printed A4 sheet.
Where am I going wrong?!!

    I should have mentioned that I had already tried that route. The problem with that is that you get a faint border printed around each of the 4 pages on the one sheet - not what we want.
    I've found with other (non-landscape!!) work that using the pages per sheet in the 'zoom' box on the first print box does not create these lines.
    It's just that with this landscape work it's creating this problem!

The problem is the PCL5 driver.
Replace it with a PCL6 driver.

Apparently, Microsoft issued an update that broke PCL5 drivers.
Perhaps they were trying to save paper. LOL!

This is not the fault of the printer but the fault of word.

The way I did it successfully was as follow:
File > Page Setup > Layout = Landscape (sounds like you have already done this)

In the print dialoge, instead of OK, click Properties. On the layout tab, select landscape and below that select pages per sheet = 4 and then click ok... Then click OK to print.

Can I print on both sides of the page


Here are the instructions for duplex printing.

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.

The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:

1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.

2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.

3. Specify Staple Side.

The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.

4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.

5. Click OK.

sub.gifIf a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:

When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.

sub.gifIf Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:

When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.

sub.gifDuplex Printing is unavailable when:

- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.

- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.

How do I print on both sides of the sheet?


Hi,

If you print to an IS networked printer the printer will automatically print on both sides of the paper (duplex). This saves paper but, because it is print toner which is the largest part of the cost, charges are the same as printing on two sheets of paper.
If you wish to print duplex to another printer (NB not all printers support duplex printing) you must:
Office 2007
  • Open your Office Document
  • Click on the Office button in the top left corner of the screen officebutton.gif
  • Click Print and select one of the printers that will perform duplex printing
  • Click on the Properties button under the Layout tab
  • Choose either Flip on Long Edge or Flip on Short Edge and click on OK If your page is set up as Portrait
  • Choose Long Edge If your page is set up as Landscape
  • Choose Short Edge . Click on OK again to send your work to the printer
Other Applications
  • Go to File and Print
  • Select one of the printers that will perform duplex printing
  • Click on the Properties button under the Layout tab
  • Choose either Flip on Long Edge or Flip on Short Edge and click on OK If your page is set up as Portrait
  • Choose Long Edge if your page is set up as Landscape
  • Choose Short Edge . Click on OK again to send your work to the printer
Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

UNABLE TO PRINT LANDSCAPE


To print photos in landscape orientation use Irfanview. Install this software and use it to view photos. Very easy settings are available in print options from its options menu.
To print documents in landscape, choose landscape orientation from page layout.
For all other applications, set the orientation from the printer's properties inside the control panel in Windows.
Note: You cannot adjust it to print in landscape for direct copying from the printer's panel.

Can't work out how to use the multiscan? I press scan and it comes up with multiscan and I put the first piece of paper in but don't seem to get asked for any more sheets and it therefore just scans one...


Anita,

Put the pages in the "multiscan" all at once, not just one sheet at a time. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) will feed one sheet of your document at a time untill all of the pages are scanned...
Thanks for using FixYa!

I am working with a Ricoh Aficio 3260 machine. I have been sent a 20-page Publisher document laid out in Landscape, each page is set up as 8.5 x 5.5. I want the Ricoh to produce a booklet stapled...


Well, I don't have a document in that format exactly to play with, but assuming you are using the PCL 5c driver, it should be a fairly simple task. If your using another driver (ie: RPCS) then it will be similar, just a little different looking dialog box.
Open your document, Select "Print", select "properties", you can change the "orientation", and "layout" (pages per sheet), 'duplex', and staple (assuming you have a booklet finisher installed and configured in your printer properties). There is an icon in the left corner that changes with the settings and should help you with the them. Obviously, you should only print 1 set, or even just a page or 2 to check the output. These types of things are always a bit of trial and error until you have done it a couple times. I hope this helps

Printing a booklet on WorkCentre 7345 , need help argent !!!


OK, same problem, I've gotten through the solution. I can print and have the first page and last page on one side of the large sheet and the two inside pages on the other side, so that is foldable into a booklet.
I start with a 4 page (US letter sized) document I wish to print as a booklet on tabloid paper.
In the (page layout or editing program's) print dialogue, I've said print all pages, set it at 1 page per sheet, then clicked the printer properties button to open the Xerox Workcenter 7345PS option dialogue.
In the Xerox dialog on the "Paper/Output" tab, selected the larger (Tabloid, 11x17" in my case) paper size, selected 2-Sided Print. Then I select the "Layout/Watermark" tab and clicked the Booklet Layout radio button, chose "Landscape" for the Page Layout Option. Note: I saved these settings as "Tabloid Booklet" by clicking the down-arrow to the right of "Driver Defaults" so that I could select them and not have to dial in every one of the settings whilst experimenting.

How do I print on both sides of my paper


On printers without a duplexer (a device that flips the paper to allow printing on both sides) you will have to print the first side, manually flip and print the second side. If you're using MS Word or MS Publisher you can easily configure the program to organize the pages for you: Start a new, blank document. -Click File, Page Setup then click the Margins tab. -In the Multiple pages section select Book fold. -Set your document to landscape orientation if it is not already. -In the Inside and Outside boxes, type or select the amount of space you want for your margins. -In the Sheets per booklet list select the number of pages you want to include in a single booklet. If the number of pages in the document exceeds the number of pages you select for a booklet, Word prints the document as multiple booklets. -When you get ready to print make sure you check the manual duplex box (should be in the first dialog box that appears when you click on File, Print). Word will print the first page, and then prompt you to take the pages that just printed and load them into the input tray of your printer. The trick is to learn how to orient the pages correctly for your printer. Good luck.
