To change the orientation of the printer from landscape to portrait follow these simple steps;
- open any document and go to print from the file menu - when the printers settings window opens click 'properties' - In the next up coming windows you can see menus like 'main, page setup, effects' profiles maintenance etc. - click 'page setup' - There you can see 'page size' and 'orientation' - change the 'orientation' from landscape to portrait - click ok and print Done : )

If the printer is set up to over-ride program settings then your Word settings for a landscape print will be ignored. To fix this, go to your Printer Settings (accessible from Word's Print window) and look for a paper settings option that will allow the printer to either use the print settings from Word, or set the printer to always print in landscape. If you go with the second option just remember that next time you want to print portrait pages you'll have to revert this setting from landscape to portrait.
You need to change the orientation in the printers screen.
Select your printer
Properties>General>Printer Preferences>Page Setup
Click on Portrait>OK
Your printout should now be in Portrait mode.
You want to flip the text? Do you mean you want the text to display 90 degrees from normal portrait mode into landscape?
If so, when you select a document to print a window should pop up with options to select number of copies, etc. Take note of a pull down menu with portrait, and landscape options.
Use landscape to print your job with the text in this mode.
If you want this set as the default option you can set this in your print settings in the computer.
Open your printer settings in control panel, (assuming you use windows) select the printer with right click, and choose properties. There should be an item labelled document preferences. In this you can select a between Portrait and landscape. Hope this helps.
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
