Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Thank you for using FixYa
If there is an icon at the bottow for the printer, click on it and go into the printer optioins, otherwise, go to the control panel and select the printer.
There should be options for setting various functions, like page orientation, size, source, margins.
Be sure the correct paper size is selected, look at the file you are tyring to print and see what size of paper it looks like on the page. Check your margins to see if it is set for a typical 8.5 x 11. page.
If the page you are printing is other than normal text, it may require special settings. If it has special graphics, charts, or spreadsheets, especially, be sure the settings in the program you are printing from match the settings for the printer. Check if the orientation is landscape or picture type. Does it have a rectangle going up or sideways? All of these are general procedures settings since we do not know what your page or file looks like that you are printing from.
I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

To configure the printer you will need to run the 'Remote Printer Console'. If you do not have a copy, you may download it on the link below:
During the installation process it should ask you the connection you will do for the printer during the initial set-up. I would recommend to use the USB connection in case the printer does not detect the network immediately.
If this has worked before you may run the software in the same manner and may need to re-enter your network settings.
Your network settings should be the same as the computers on your network. If you are using wireless make sure you are using the same network name or SSID and type of security and password.
