Printing from firefox 3 I get unrecognisable characters...

For alphanumeric characters. Pictures come thru fine. It prints the same webpage fine when viewed with IE6.

There appears to be no updated driver online for the A3000.

Any ideas?

How do you print horizontal and vertical


What you need is a font style. By default it will print horizontaly. To print vertically you will need to select Vertical in the font style.

When you select a style, that style applies to all characters. Styles can be used with alphanumeric characters and some symbols.

Normal
Bold
Italic
Outline
Shadow
Vertical

To set the font style
1. Press FORMAT .
2. Use the up or down arrow keys to select STYLE and press OK.

Web pages print ramdom characters


Try a different version I had it happen to me, so if it did it using 9.0 adobe acrobat reader I would go to 5.0 or 6.0 version instead and then it would solve my problem everytime it's a hassle but don't know any other way around so that's my best advice.

I am trying to print something from a web page on the internet and it will only print from the left to the right, leaving about 2 to 3 inches of info out. How do i get it to print the entire thing?


I would guess you are using Internet Explorer when you try to print this. Internet explorer has a bad habit of not printing the whole page. Go to a search engine and search for "Firefox". That is another browser and it will print the entire page when you use it to print out webpages.

HL-2070N will not properly print


My guess is the problem is with Firefox trying to print the page and not the printer. Try to go to File > Print Preview and see if it looks normal there. If not, I have 3 suggestions:
  1. Try to change the "Page Options" or "Scale" under the Print Preview
  2. Try to install and use the Firefox Add-On "IE Tab". This gives you the choice to display the page with Internet Explorer, while still using Firefox. You can turn on IE Tab, and then try to print. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419
  3. Upgrade to Firefox 3.
