HP P2015DN Prints in Landscape form

HP Laser P2015DN



When I print checks from the software that we use (Sage Platinum), they print out in landscape form instead of portrait. I\'ve tried changing the settings but it doesn\'t make any difference. They all print in landscape form.



I\'m guessing that it has something to do with the print drivers but I don\'t have a clue how to get the correct ones.

Any ideas?

Hi
sometimes just some of the printer drivers are with "bugs" like this one.
If you are using Win 7 or newer ver. please don't let the operation system to install drivers for this printer. Download drivers from www.hp.com and install it manual. Try different drivers. I'm sure that this will help to prevent "landscaping"HP P2015DN Prints in Landscape form - pocvnqve445ajvwaaaaasuvork5cyii=

Try printing to a different printer if possible. This may shed some light on whether the problem is with the printer or with Excel. You could also open the file on a completely different PC and printer to see if something is corrupt in the file. Also try creating a completely new document to see if it will print in landscape. Can you print in landscape orientation from MS Word or another program?

My HP P2015DN only prints one page at a time. If I have a 5 page document, the first page prints and then I must print the go button for each page to print.


Is the paper feeding from the manual tray or tray 2. If you are printing from tray 2 and have this problem then it is likely that your driver or software is looking for different paper types than you have loaded in the printer. For example, if you have plain paper in tray 2 and your software wants to print on letterhead, then the printer will stop after each page and by pressing the button you are telling the printer that it is ok to print on different paper. If you have the paper in the manual feed tray (tray 1) then I would check to make sure you are telling the pirnter to print to tray 1 and not manual feed when you send a print job.

Tally 6212 - Landscape Documents Printed Vertically


You do indeed have problem-- the printer is doing what you are telling it to do changing the print from Portrait to Landscape on a dot matrix printer has the same effect as that on a Laser printer, it rotates the print by 90 degrees.

The correct solution of to define a custom size of paper which is the same size as the paper you are printing on.
If you are using Windows 2000, XP, 2003 etc you can create a Custom Size paper in the following way;

  • Ensure you are logged in with administrtor rights
  • Open the Printers Folder
  • Go to the FILE DROP DOWN MENU
  • Select SERVER PROPERTIES
  • Ensure the FORMS tab is selected
  • Tick the CREATE FORM button
  • Enter a NAME for the form
  • Enter the dimensions (be careful of the units you are using --- best results use inches)
  • Do NOT set margins printable areas etc
  • Click on the SAVE button
One you have created the custom size form you should be able to select this by name in the printer driver properties and the software package you are using.

Samsung 4216f doesnt print landscape, Vista 64


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
