    not the same but similar. have been printing 3x5 continuous pin feed cards for years on this LQ-590 with win95 up to 200 cards at a time. On its own it has started to treat printing as if 8x11 skipping 2 + cards before starting next card. doc page setup shows 3x5 and preview is correct. Also, have inexplicable paper out error in middle of print job when card sheet is obviously running fine from rear tractor feed, sheets not disconnected. Have to power off/on. Have reloaded print drivers. Any suggestions. Epson support gave me boilerplate response on realigning top of page! thanx, kevink

  1. You text page is larger than the printer page,
    margins are set wrong, or there are special
    formatting marks and/or characters at the end
    of your documents.

  2. Check default printer paper-size settings:

    START --> Printers & Faxes -> Chose printer -->
    right-click --> properties --> ....

    This sets the default settings, that are in effect every time
    an application starts up.

    Also note, that if printer settings are not listed within
    your START menu, you can find them in the Windows
    control panel. You can change what shows in the
    START menu and what doesn't by right-clicking the
    task bar.

  3. Now start your application and do the same thing under
    the file menu:

    File --> Print --> Settings ...
    File --> Printer settings ...
    File --> Page setup .... and also margins. etc...

    This sets the actual settings for this application or the
    current document. These settings over-ride the global
    default setting in item (2)
  4. To clarify, the settings in item (2) should be setup to
    reflect the way you use the printer the most often.

    The settings in item (3) reflect the actual document you
    are trying to print now.

  5. Be careful that the paper size settings (3) accurately
    reflect the paper in the machine, do not confuse
    metric sizes: A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 ....

    with English sizes: Letter, Legal,..... etc

    These do not line up exactly.

  6. Also check your document, to make sure that there
    are no extra characters at the end of your document:

    Paragraph marks, Page Brakes, Form Feeds, etc.

    Also check the paragraph settings (in Word for Windows,
    for example, to make sure that is not the cause of the
    problem.

    In word for Windows, for example, you can also go
    into tools, options and change the way your document
    is displayed, such that all formatting marks become
    visible (or click on the paragraph tool)

  7. Finally, most Windows applications offer some kind
    of print PREVIEW facility, so that you can see what
    you are going to get, before you physically print it.



I hope this solves your problem, please rate my answers.
Good luck.

By control panel set up you have to set the paper size by 8 ich to 12 inch as per the paper size you required. If once you set this paper size . there is no use by setting the paper size in printer properties or printing preferences.

I am a teacher. We have Dell computers with windows 7 on them. Recently our school district downloaded Microsoft Office 10. Since the new microsoft office, my xerox phaser 8500 is printing strange. ...


Hi fsaltzman,

You need to check the margin settings in the print preview option, make sure you decrease the margins that are set by default and try printing a test page , this should work fine.

On the File menu, you need to click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
Here you can adjust the margins as per your convenience.

To View page margins :-
  1. You need to go on the Tools menu, select Options, and then select the View tab.
  2. Under Print and Web Layout options, select the Text boundaries check box.

The page margins appear in your document as dotted lines.


You can use these dotted lines to correct your margins so that your student's assignments are not cut off and there is no large margin as you have mentioned in your question.


You can view page margins in either Print Layout or Web Layout view only, and they do not appear on the printed page.

Hope this helps

Messages from outlook express when printed cut off letters from left-hand margin.


The page setup for Outlook Express are controlled by the settings in

will fix your problem...

My Canon MP190 printer prints good, but at the left of the print the alignment is too much to the left, so capitals "fall off" the page. Canon says it is not a printer problem, but something else, but...


Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Open Notepad
Click File
Click Page Setup

Check that the "page-margins" are not set to '0.0'.

Or, start Microsoft Word or Works or whatever "text-editor" that you use, and similarly check the "printer setup" for "left-margin".

Incomplete Printing


It depends on the page you are trying to print. Some pages do not like printing everything on the page. What I have done is printed to PDF (with images) and then printed the PDF. You can find free PDF printers here:

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

Hi,
here is solution..
Solution Step one: Make sure that the product prints correctly
  1. Print a self-test page from the product control panel, from Windows, or from the product software. (See the product user guide, available online, for instructions to print a self-test page.)
  2. Check to make sure that black and all colors (if using a color product) print on the self-test page.
    • If the self-test page does not print correctly, an issue might exist with the product hardware. See the product user guide, available online, for further troubleshooting steps.
    • If the self-test page prints correctly, continue with the next step.
Step two: Determine what portion of the page is set to print Many Web pages use frames. Frames divide the screen into multiple windows. Follow these steps to determine what portion of the page is set to print.
  1. Click the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop. The Internet Explorer window opens.
  2. On the File menu, click Print . The Print dialog box opens.
  3. Click the Options tab to view the print settings.
  4. Change the settings if required, and then click Print .
Step three: Change the Encoding setting in the Web browser
  1. Click the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop. The Internet Explorer window opens.
  2. On the Menu bar, click View .
  3. Click Encoding to view a list of encoding options.
  4. Check the Encoding settings.
    • If Auto Select has a check mark next to it, click to clear the check box.
    • If Western European Windows does not have a check mark next to it, select it.
Try printing again. If the issue continues, proceed to the next step. Step four: Check the page setup settings for the Web browser Web pages are designed to be viewed at a certain screen resolution. If the resolution of the screen is lower than the resolution of the Web page, the whole screen might not display or might not be printed.
  1. Make sure that Internet Explorer is open.
  2. On the File menu, click Page Setup . The Page Setup dialog box opens.
  3. Review the Margins information.
  4. Make sure that the margin settings are greater than or equal to the minimum printable region margins for the product. The margins vary slightly among HP All-in-One products. As a general rule, the settings should be at least the values shown in the following table. Side Margin Top Margin Bottom Margin 6.3 mm (0.25 inch) 6.3 mm (0.25 inch) 6.3 mm (0.25 inch)
  5. Make necessary changes to the margin settings.
  6. Click OK to save the changes.
Try printing again. If the issue continues, proceed to the next step. Step five: Print using Smart Web printing software HP Smart Web Printing is fast, free, downloadable software that enhances how Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox print Web pages. Use HP Smart Web Printing for the following tasks:
  • Select text and graphics from any Web site
  • Save paper by combining portions of numerous Web pages
  • Preview and modify clips before printing
Thank you.......

Won't be the printer so I guess that leaves software or printer driver settings or the actual document setup.

Paper margin problem in pagemaker application


Do you mean the left margin is too large so all the content is shifted to the right and off the page? If this is the case, it is probably a setting in Pagemaker. In the file menu, choose "page setup" or "print setup". Check the paper size. Check the margins.
