My printout has incorrect margins. What should I do?

  • If you're scanning or copying, make sure you've aligned the document correctly. See Placing Originals for Scanning.

    If you're printing from your computer, the problem could be due to a software setting or the paper may be loaded incorrectly. Make sure your paper is loaded against the right side of the sheet feeder and then slide the left edge guide against the paper. See The margins are incorrect.

    Otherwise, check to see if there is a Printer Friendly Version (or similarly named) icon or link on the web page that you can click on. If not, experiment with page setup and paper size, then select Print Preview from the File menu in your application to view the changes.
