most printers do not have an automatic preference but a requirement to set it prior to printing
at the print stage go to properties , select the landscape or portrait button and apply
that makes it a default setting for all future printing
Paper jam at the drum area. Are you printing to this machine ensure the print properties equals what is a the machine Landscape paper not portrait vise versa. Ensure machine not set to metric size paper vise Inch in the USA
It sounds like your printer is set to print landscape, instead of portrait mode. Next time you want to print, click on file(top left of screen), then print (don't just click on the little printer icon). This will open a new printer window where you can choose different setting. The option to change from landscape to portrait will be listed somewhere in that window. Once you have selected that feature and print it will stay that way unless you change it. You will have to check this setting in each computer program you use.
To change the orientation of the printer from landscape to portrait follow these simple steps;
- open any document and go to print from the file menu - when the printers settings window opens click 'properties' - In the next up coming windows you can see menus like 'main, page setup, effects' profiles maintenance etc. - click 'page setup' - There you can see 'page size' and 'orientation' - change the 'orientation' from landscape to portrait - click ok and print Done : )

If the printer is set up to over-ride program settings then your Word settings for a landscape print will be ignored. To fix this, go to your Printer Settings (accessible from Word's Print window) and look for a paper settings option that will allow the printer to either use the print settings from Word, or set the printer to always print in landscape. If you go with the second option just remember that next time you want to print portrait pages you'll have to revert this setting from landscape to portrait.
Sir/Mam you mite want to check your bypass tray located on the right side of the machine. If printing to the machine recommended that you send the print job over to the machine before placing paper in the bypass tray and wait for the machine to indicate to replenish paper in the bypass tray. When that occurs look at the icon on the operators panel and notice the icon after the 81/2x11 paper and make sure you place the paper properly in the tray landscape or portrait the copier knows how long the paper should be if in landscape the copier is asking for portrait. and vise a versa.
Having reinstalled the driver check both the printer and also the print driver for a zoom setting that would show as 50% as a default. This is most likely to be on the print driver setup on the PC. This can also happen if you get a combination of 'zoom to fit' and then change the orientation from portrait to landscape and vice versa so check this setting as well. You can avoid this by setting auto adjust for rotation from portrait to landscape and vice versa.
goto the control panel-->printers and faxes and do a right click on the printer icon.now goto printing preferences and change the settings as per your need there is also a check box for showing the preview before printing,check that ,now everytime you want to print something it will show you a preview in advance for how the print out's gonna look like you can change the settings as portrait or landscape by going to printing preferences. hope this helps
