My printout has incorrect margins. What should I do?

  • The best solution for this problem depends on whether you're printing, scanning or copying. See the solutions below for your task:

    Printing
    • Make sure the paper settings are correct for your paper size in the printer software.
    • Choose the correct margins for your paper size in your printing program.
    • Use the Print Preview option in your printer software to check your margins before you print.
    • Make sure your paper is positioned next to the right side of the feeder and the edge guide is against the left side of the paper. See Loading paper.
    • If you're using a Macintosh, make sure you choose the same printer in the Page Setup window and the Print window.
    • If you're printing from a web browser, the pages may not print correctly due to the web page design. Try one of the following:
      • Use EPSON Web-To-Page software if you're using Windows XP or 2000 with Internet Explorer 5.5 through version 6 (not necessary with Internet Explorer 7 which has this functionality built-in). This software automatically adjusts web pages to fit your printed page.
      • 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.
      • Experiment with page setup and paper size, then select Print Preview from the File menu in your application to view the changes.
