We did not fix the problem, however we just upgraded my Microsoft Office and the problem went away. A new printer had been installed, and we think the problem stemmed from that. Another lady in the office had the same thing happen when her new HP Deskjet 6940 was installed into Microsoft 2000.

Prints out of alignment on excel spreadsheets

go to print preview, then to the margins button at the top and click it, margins will appear on the page, adjust your margins to the edges of the page, if the spreadsheet is supposed to be on one page and doesnt fit, go to page setup and shrink the size of the document (will be percentage), either way--once you have moved your margins out to the edges, you can then move them back in a little at a time if you need to in order to center your document on the page. Hope this helped.

The printer will not print on the half inch left edge of the page.

go to settings and change the left margin to 0.0. if in Word, then file->page setup and set the margins to what you want, left margin to 0.0 in your case.

I'm trying to print compact size directly from excel/word. What are the margins?

Step 1 Start Microsoft Excel and open an existing spreadsheet on which you would like to set the margins.
  • Step 2 Choose the "File" menu and click "Page Setup" to open the "Page Setup" dialog box. The "Page Setup" dialog box can be used to set up your page just how you would like it to appear.
  • Step 3 Click on the "Margins" tab at the top of the "Page Setup" dialog box to show the margins for the spreadsheet that you currently have option.
  • Step 4 Set the "Left," "Top," "Right," "Bottom," "Header" and "Footer" margins by clicking within the text box underneath each option to highlight the current margin setting.
  • Step 5 Type a new measurement for whichever margins you would like to change or use the arrows to move up and down throughout the measurements you can select for each option.
  • Step 6 Notice as you update each margin the preview in the center of the screen will change to reflect your new margin settings.
  • Step 7 Use your mouse to click the "OK" button to close the "Page Setup" dialog box and set the margins you have chosen for your current

    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".

    Printer does not print whole document

    In 'Print Preview' look at the margins, and see if anything is too close to the edge of the paper. If it is, then set your margins further from the edge, or drag graphics further from the edge, etc.

    To correct the margins that are set to close to the edge of the paper, open the document in Microsoft Word and follow these steps:
    1. Make sure that you are using the same printer driver that gave you the error in Microsoft Word Viewer.
    2. In Word, on the File menu, click Page Setup.
    3. Click OK.

      You receive a warning dialog box about the unprintable regions.
    4. Click the Fix button.
    5. Save and close the document.
    You can now open and print the document in Word Viewer without receiving the error message.

    Envelope margin error

    have you adjusted the page setup on your software?
    I'm assuming you're using Word to print a mail merge. yes?

    Check that the margins are setup properly in the "word document"
    Go undetr file, page setup, and confirm the envelope size is set properly.
    Check the page setup in the printing preferences.
    File, Print, Printing Preferences.

    The printer accepts whatever margins microsoft word tells it to use.

    Best wishes

    Printing blank page at the end of every printing job

    Hi Keren,

    1) Are you sure it is the printer, not the software application ?

    Try printing a single "Hello World" message from "Notepad"

    If there is no blank page at the end of it, the problem is in
    the specific software app: Office, Word, Excel, etc...

    2) What application are you printing from?

    a) Check the page and print setup.

    b) Make sure the application's "page size" and the printer's
    paper size are consistent. Pay special attention to
    metric paper sizes vs English:

    E.g. A4 vs Letter

    If the page with margins is bigger than the paper, it will
    generate a new page, even though there are no visible
    characters on it.

    c) Check the print margins within the page setup:
    In MS-Office: File ---> Page Setup --->

    d) Add a single character to the very bottom of your
    document, and see if it wraps around onto the last page.

    Microsoft office applications are notorious for wrapping
    the last PARAGRAPH character onto the next page if
    it does not quite fit onto the paper.

    e) if you are using MS WinWord, go into options and set it
    to display all special characters:

    Check to make sure that there are no page-breaks at
    the end of the document.

    Also look for extra paragraph marks/ carriage returns,
    and check the format settings on the last paragraph
    mark in the document:

    Page brake before...
    Keep lines together ....
    Widow and orphan control ...

    which can cause the last paragraph mark to generate a
    new page. If the last paragraph mark is not formatted
    the way you want it, make sure that you save the
    TEMPLATE after you change it, since this is the
    DEFAULT setting for all new documents.

    Finally it is also possible for Windows applications to look
    different on the screen than the final print due to small
    (but cumulative) True Type Font (TTF) computation erros,
    such that a 10 page document on the screen can actually
    page-split in weird places printing as 11 pages.

    I have the identical model of printer, and it does NOT seem
    to have any settings for printing banners or adding separator
    pages, at least not in my printer driver, but this is NOT to say
    that the applications you are using are not causing this

    I hope this gets you started.

    Please rate my answers.

    I cannot set the right and left margins on documents(I don't know what changed but, the margins used to be .75 inch). My printer is an MP830. Thank-you for your assistance. L. Prescott

    Margins are set in the software application, not in the printer settings. For example, in Microsoft Word, Excel, or Wordpad, margin settings are found under File/Page Setup.
