Using MSWord I made a document, tables, in legal paper size, lanscape. Late, I try to print this in letter size, using "Scale to letter" at printer dialog box. Document is cut, it doesn't works. I do the same with other printers, and it works.

Re: Scale from legal to letter
Hi, Legal size is 11x17 inches and you cannot get a legal length document when selected for landscape. Landscape means that it is 11 inches high and 17 inches wide. You need to set it to letter and select 11x17 inches.

Obviosly your magazine (Place of taking paper) of the printer is set to legal. The lights is lighting, couse the printer is telling you: You want me to print on letter, but I don have any letter, so please confirm that you want me to print on legal. In order to avoid this set the printer to all types of paper available.
scan it as a document, re-scale it in required size and save then print in required size.
these adjustments are in your word or office programs. if you need to make it to copy, insert your original in the scanner, in paper tray insert your letter paper, select copy and then re-size, this should do it "on the run".
Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.
More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.
If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.
Go to Printer and Faxes in Control Panel, Right click on the printer for which you want to change the settings. click properties, go to printing preferences there look for paper size and select A4 or letter/legal as per your choice
Use The Recommended Print Area
For the best
printing results, adjust the top and bottom margins of your document to
within the recommended printing area shown below.
Click on the paper size listed for the recommended print area settings: A4 / B5 / A5 / 4 x 6 / 4 x 8 / 5 x 7 / Credit Card, Letter and Legal, Envelopes (DL / COM#10) Caution:
When printing is performed outside the recommended printing area, the
top and bottom edges of the paper may curl, the print quality may
deteriorate, or the printed side may be smudged.
The printer has both the recommended print area and the printable area, according to the paper size.
Recommended print area: This indicates the recommended print area.
Printable area: Although this indicates the printable area, degradation of print quality may occur. Note:
Set Borderless Printing to print without margins.
In Duplex Printing, the printable area of the paper's header is approximately 2 mm narrower than usual.
