This is a problem with the printer software / drivers.

start with unpluging the printer from the pc and remove all the programs and drivers related to your printer.

Then download the newest software for your windows from here

let me know if you need anything else.

Thank you,

My epson rx420 only prints the left hand side of any document ??? Can any one help please . many thanks

have you set the page setup in document is same with page setup at print setup. Some new epson printer use paper sensor to measure the paper width. If page setup wider than actually paper inserted, the printer will print only half page. example : Your document 10 cm wide, page setup 20 cm, and you insert 10 cm paper wide. It will print only half of 10 cm, 5 cm.

Printer sends out 'file details' page everytime I print a file

Program/software you use to print? File details can be found at printer properties/printer setup. Disable File Detail/File Information.

Printer sends out extra page everytime I print

either your paper size settings need to be adjusted in the software, or your setup has included a seperator page.

RE: Canon Bu-20 bluetooth printer adaptor. I just purchased one and there are NO instructions in the package. Do you know of an instruction page/manual?

With my MX850 printer the bluetooth setup instructions were only in the on-screen printer manual, not with the bluetooth adapter, and not with the printer documentation.

In my case it didn't help as Windows is not discovering the bluetooth adapter for some reason.
