Question about Samsung SCX 4200 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printing squares instead of text

When printing off of Firefox and some sites in Explorer, the text prints in a small blank squares as if a font isn't recognized. Some text in the SmartPanel is like this too. No problems for graphics, .txt, or .doc files.
Thanks a million,
Dave

How do i make my print larger onmy kodak esp3.2


I depends upon what you are printing from. For example, if you are printing from a web page, sometimes there is a selection available on the web site to increase the size.

If the problem is the size that is printing out, I usually do a "cut and paste" of the text from the web page and then paste it onto a blank document page. You can then change the font and/or size of the text.

One other suggestions is in the "printer" settings, select the choice for "no borders" or "no margins" and that will allow the text to expand slightly.

How to change font size


The font size that appears within printed documents has to be adjusted in the application you are printing from. For example, if you are printing a Microsoft Word document, change the font while editing the document in Word. If you are printing a web page, you will need to change the font in the web browser settings (Chrom, Firefox, IE)... for Chrome, here are the steps:

  1. Click the Chrome menu snp_2696434_en_v1 on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings.
  4. In the "Web Content" section, use the "Font size" drop-down menu to make adjustments.
Some websites prevent the browser from changing just text size. For those sites, Chrome won't be able to adjust the font size.

Change font size in e mail


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

Which browser are you using? Internet Explorer? Mozilla Firefox? Opera? Google Chrome? Safari?

If you are using internet explorer: Click Tools/View/Text Size and change it.

If you don't see tools at the top of your browser on a line that says File/Edit/View/Favorites/Tools/Help look for tools over on the right then click it and select Toolbars, then select Menu Bar and it will stay at the top of the browser so you can just click Tools/View/Text Size

If you have Windows 7 press and hold the ALT key for the menu bar to appear at the top of the browser.

When I am on the internet and want to print something, how can I get the print to print out larger in order to read it better? I have a HP Photosmart C4795 printer. Thank you.


There are lots of browsers so I don't know what you are using. Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari are some of the browsers.
Usually the browser has settings for this. Sometimes It's as simple as looking for a setting for font or zoom.
Look for things in the menu such as --settings, tools, options, etc.
Usually the choices will be things like - smallest, smaller, normal, larger, largest. Pick a larger zoom or font and try to re-print.
When you pick the larger size the text on the screen will be bigger, and should also print larger.

Printed font size too small


Most web browsers have an option to change the text size on the page you are viewing. In IE8 it is accessible through the Page menu, Text Size. It defaults to Medium, and there are 2 smaller sizes and 2 larger sizes available.

Prints very small


The font size is going to be controlled by the program you are using. For normal word processing you would use a 10 or 12 point font.

If you are referring to printing from a browser like Internet Explorer, you can change the font from the Internet Explorer menu VIEW > TEXT SIZE > MEDIUM (normal).

Note: Internet Explorer font settings effect Outlook Express too.

Click on Format.
Click on Font.
Select the desired font under Size.

3. Select from among the five options by using the mouse to highlight or by pressing the appropriate keyboard letter, i.e. g for "Largest", l for "Larger", m for "Medium", s for "Smaller" or a for "Smallest."

Use the mouse to highlight your choice or the appropriate keyboard short cut, i.e. 5 for 50%, 7 for 75%, 9 for 90%, z for 100% (the default), 1 for 120%, 5 for 150% or 2 for 200%.
The size of the text displayed in the browser window will change in accordance with your choice.

Change font size


Two things you can try!

1.From your Browser you can change text size in the browser.
I am using Internet Explorer for this example
Click on View from the top tool bar, Select Text Size.. you can increase and decrease the text size of a web page.

2.Before you print check Print Preview and Increse the page size.
My Browser defualt to Shrink to Fit,
I can change that to 120% and it will print the page very large.

Most programs in Windows will offer a Print Preivew
there you can make adjustments, and this can also be accomplished with Page Set Up..

Hope this Helps
