Question about Printronix Line Matrix P5210 Printer

Prints four blank pages between each printed document...

The printer will print, but between each document are four blank pages. In the upper left-hand corner of each page is printed a code--the printed page has a "2", the next blank page has "WI*A", the second page has "2CBA", and third and fourth blank pages have "2A", and then the printed document resumes with a "2" at the top. This is repeated for as many documents are printed. Our school code is 2A, but I don't know what the other codes are. Does anybody know how I stop this from happening? I've been through all the configuration menus and have created custom configurations for our jobs, but I can't find what's causing this. It's an enormous waste of paper.

Hi there!
The issue that you are having is because of the settings on your Microsoft Word. Here's what you can do to resolve the issue.
  1. Open the document you want to print on Microsoft Word. Click on the Orb icon on the upper left hand corner which is also called the Office button.
  2. Click on Print and click on Print again. The Print window should be open by now.
  3. On the lower left hand corner of the print window you will see the options button. Click on the Options button. You should now have the Word Options window.
  4. On the Word Options window. Click Display from the Left panel, you should see Printing Options.
  5. Make sure that under Printing Options only Print Drawings created in Word is Checked and leave the others unchecked. Click OK. Click OK again. This should print your document without the other page.
Hope this helps! Have a Good day!

The printer prints a blank page with a line of gibberish in the upper left corner before it prints the real page.


Can you send me a "print to file" of the failing document.

At first blush it can be either of two things.

1) The preceding print job did not properly clean out the printer's memory.

2) The new print job, has data or a busted escape command in it that is being treated as printable data.

Send the print file to [email protected] and I'll read through the document header to see what's going on.

The page prints to a small version in top left hand corner. everything is set to A4. Have tried all settings Have tried paper feed from back and front. Unable to get it to print a full size A4 page even...


Make sure on the Page Setup tab that the Page Layout says 'Normal-size' and not 'Poster' (poster tries to place four documents on a single printed sheet). If this is not the problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver.

Printing Problem


Check your printer driver for the paper setting, under properties. Make sure it is set to letter. Otherwise reset the power of the unit and/or reinstall the driver.

Sometimes when toner starts to get low prints will faed or not print on sides. Make sure the printer is on a very level surface. Remove the toners and shake lightly left to right and reinstall.
