I would suspect the problem with the field at the top right of the page is being printed incorrectly because the printer receiving an escape command (control code) the printer either does not recognize or performs a wrong function on the 2280+.
If the printer was printing correctly and has suddenly started printing incorrectly it may be best to investigate what has changed ie have any of the following changed;

  • Printer driver or setup on the host computer system
  • Connectivity method
  • Printer settings may have been changed (check the emulation setting)

If the printer is a new setup and has not yet printed this document correctly it may be worth doing the follwing;

  1. If the printer is connected via the parallel interface (either directly to a computer system or via an external print server ) disable Cx-Bid
  2. If you know which driver or type of escape commands are used on the computer system ensure the emulation setting on the printer matches the host system.
  3. If you are not sure of the system setup perhaps try setting IBM for the emulation setting.
  4. If the above actions do not rectify the problem and you are able to select drivers etc on the host system ensure the 2280+ driver (or a compatible Epson or IBM driver is used ie either Epson LQ2550 or IBM ProPrinter XL24)
Further to this it may be nessesary to investigate the data file being recived by the pritner, by performing a hexdump to identify the cause of the problem and also identify a suitable soluion.

6-part NCr paper form being used. Pages 1 and 2


This is a problem with your paper. Using multi-part forms on an impact printer will get lighter print on each layer working from the top form to the bottom. The "carbon" paper has to impact the paper hard enough to make the marks. If your top and bottom copies look good but some in the middle are light it is a problem with the "carbon" paper and not the printer.
Now IF the top page is light and each copy under that is getting lighter then you need to close your platen gap (the lever on the right side of the machine mark A B C) go one click at a time (darkening) until the print quality looks good (or you go too far and it pinches the paper and jams *not good*)

How to do a reverse form feed in Visual Basic 6


Two things to consider:

1) The printer itself must be designed to handle reverse form feeds. I am not sure how many these days are.

2) If you're printer can handle reverse form feeds then it should be a simple matter to send the appropriate ascii code to the printer to initiate it. Much the same as if you wanted to have the printer do a line feed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Can't print custom envelope on HP Photosmart 7280


OK, to make this clearer, I had the same problem on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.

My Fix, combining several others:

1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.

Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list

Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.

If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.

When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!

Printer is not aligning paper properly.


Please try the following to resolved that issue:

1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the desired tractor is selected (the corresponding tractor arrow should be lit).
2. Open the upper cover.
3. Press the Top of Form button to enter top-of-form mode. The printer beeps once, and the Top of Form light turns on.
4. Use the Micro Feed buttons to feed the paper to the desired top-of-form position. The “A” on the ribbon protector shows you where the bottom edge of your first line of text will print. This position is based on the first printable line of text. If your software inserts a top margin of five lines, your text will actually print five lines below the top-of-form position.
5. Press the Top of Form button again to exit and save your new top-of-form position. Then close the top cover.
