Most likely you print "driver" has a conflict with VISTA

Notify Microsoft they are releasing daily fixes for Vista user issues. try one other easy fix. the power cable which plugs into your printer- unplug it for 5 minutes- this has in the past worked for me when a printer was doing strange things like your describing.

How do I change margin setrtings foe Lexmark P4350


If you are preparing to print a document that you have created in Microsoft Word, you may be concerned that all the text on the page will print exactly as you see it on your screen. This is not always the case. You can adjust your print margins to ensure that your text prints on each page exactly the way you would like it to appear.

Opening Your Document
Open your Microsoft Word document by double-clicking the Word icon on your desktop. If you do not see the icon on your desktop, then you can locate it where it is buried on your "Start" menu. Click "Start," followed by "All Programs." Then click "Microsoft Office," followed by "Microsoft Office Word." A new document will open on your screen. Click the "Office Button," followed by "Open." Scroll through the files listed, and double-click the one you would like to print. It will open on your screen.

Check Your Margins
By default, your page margins are set to 1-inch margins on the top, bottom, right and left of your page. You can check your margins or change them by clicking "Page Layout," followed by the "Margins" button.

Select New Margins
Select a different margin size, such as "Narrow," which indicate 1/2-inch margins, or "Wide," which indicate one-inch margins on the top and bottom and two-inch margins on the left and right. You also can select "Moderate," which indicate one-inch margins on the top and bottom and 3/4-inch margins on the left and right. Finally, you can select "Mirrored," which indicates one-inch margins for the top, bottom and outside. The inside margins are set at 1 1/4 inches.

Print Your Page
Print your page. Press "Control" plus the "P" button. The printer dialog menu will come up. Make sure that "All Pages in Range" is selected. Press "OK." If your printer cannot print your new margins, then a new menu will pop up telling you to adjust your margins.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

On my Laserjet 3015, in Microsoft Word, if I set top, bottom, left, and right margins to 1", on the printed page, the margins print as Top 1", Left 15/16", Right 1-1/8", and Bottom...


Hi,
The default paper selection/ size in MS Word is 'letter'. you may have designed the document on letter size and while printing you have A4 size paper in the printer.
So, Make sure that you design the document on the same paper size (such as A4, which is commonly used). Secondly, while printing don't print the document directly. From the Print dialogue option choose the exact paper size and un-check (de-select) any option of paper resizing (if available). You will have the documents printed exactly as designed.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Can not get printer to print information that on top to be copy on bottom of same page.


  1. Select 'Properties' from the Print dialog.

    Note: Properties may be indicated as Advanced, depending on the application software.

    Note: When a media type other than Plain Paper, Photo Paper Plus Double Sided, or Postcard is selected in the Media Type menu, duplex printing cannot be performed.

  5. Specify Staple Side.
    1. The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position.
    2. Click the Staple Side drop-down arrow and select the setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
    3. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width

  6. When the setting is completed, click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

    Note:
    If a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
    The document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper when printing starts. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.

    If Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
    The document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time, when printing starts. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.


  7. You will be prompted, while printing, to remove the printed page and reload it in the ASF.

  8. Dependent on the number of pages to print, you will need to repeat step 7 until all pages have printed.

    Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


    I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
    1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
    2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
    3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
    4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
      to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
    5. Click OK.
    One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
    If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
    1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
    2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
    3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
    4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
    5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
      Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
    6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
    With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
    Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

    Printer does not print whole document


    In 'Print Preview' look at the margins, and see if anything is too close to the edge of the paper. If it is, then set your margins further from the edge, or drag graphics further from the edge, etc.

    To correct the margins that are set to close to the edge of the paper, open the document in Microsoft Word and follow these steps:
    1. Make sure that you are using the same printer driver that gave you the error in Microsoft Word Viewer.
    2. In Word, on the File menu, click Page Setup.
    3. Click OK.

      You receive a warning dialog box about the unprintable regions.
    4. Click the Fix button.
    5. Save and close the document.
    You can now open and print the document in Word Viewer without receiving the error message.
