Question about Epson AcuLaser C900 Printer

2 Answers

Epson C900 print shifted down page -

I used to print out from MS Image composer on A4 size paper setting. Previously, the C900 did not complain and printing was ok. Only recently after leaving 1.5 inches blank from the top A4 paper, it starts to print the images and the rest falls off the end of the page and it tells me that incorrect paper size has been used. I have not changed anything software driver or hardware, which leaves me puzzled. I have tried changing paper size , offset setting it does not help much as in felix case. I am using XP. I have reinstalled the drvier on another laptop and it has the same behaviour and error. Please advise and thanks in advance.

    Hi der

    Interesting problem. I have the same problem and have no idea what is wrong. I have chased all though the settings trying everything but no joy.

    I sort of have to same problem although not with MS image composer. The printer I installed hasn't been used for about a year and a half, but before there was no problems, but when I install it now the printer test page is shifted down almost 10cm. I have tried just about every combination of settings there is with no luck. However when I change the settings to print black instead of color the page is only shifted about 5cm down. Printing in black got rid of the incorrect paper size message for the test page, but when I tried to print a document with 2 pages from Word the first page came out with the 5cm offset and the second page came out with 14cm offset and the incorrect paper size message came once more.

    Has a solution for this problem been posted somewhere?

OK after messing about with the drivers I got it to work. I downloaded a driver from Epson singapore and it made no difference. So, I re used the driver from Epson UK and hey presto the thing works again. Why? Good question. Maybe the people in Epson have no idea either.
So, I suggest deleting the driver rebooting the system and reinstalling it. I hope you get it working.

Hi chara

chara i have delayed to respond to your question because i wanted to simulate your situation. To say the least i have setup my machines to the dimensions you have mentioned but i still get good prints with obviously that final message that "incorrect paper size"

pass more details on 1. ms image version 2. printer settings (reset all to default) 3. ms image printer properties settings.

i have a feeling that this problem come from ms image end

When printing uisng an mf4270 I get an error "load correct paper". I am using A4 and the setting is A4 on both printer setting as well as printing driver. My OS is Win7 and editing software MS office and...

Hi
Just a thought but is the printer detecting the "type" of paper you are trying to use, as opposed to simply the size. For example, is it trying to load "glossy photo paper" specified by the printer utility and finding standard photocopy paper.

I could not print from ms word 2007

Have you been able to print previously or have you recently installed a new printer?

In word, check the paper settings are the same as your printers, ie A4 or an imperial size. If Word wants to print to A4 and your printer has no tray containing A4 then it won't run the print job.

Is there paper in the tray of the printer?

Can you print a test page from the printer menu itself to ensure that the printer is working okay.

Do i can customize my paper size in MS Excel 2003

When you are in Excel, go to Print Preview, then Printer Properties. There should be a box that says "Custom Size." There you can input your paper size and name it so you can recall it anytime you want.

Will not print 4 x 6 prints

try to find the margin settings of the application that you are printing  with. If margins are setup in a wrong way it will print anywhere it likes.

 

Aso see the paper size. e.g. A4, A3 etc.

 

I think you should take a normal a4 paper and print it and see the size of the image and the size of the document that you have created.

 

Another way to test it is to copy the image(content) only and paste it in some other application like MS Word or something else and try to print it in 4x6.

 

 

If it is an image and you can copy it to MS Paint then do it and cut everything else (crop the image accordig to its' size), then print.

 

Remember to place the paper on the right hand side of the paper tray. (You can do the reverse also if it required.)
