My printout has incorrect margins. What should I do?

  • The answer depends on whether you're printing, scanning, or copying. See the solutions below for your task.

    • Make sure your paper is positioned correctly in the cassette.
    • Make sure the paper settings are correct for your paper size in the Windows, Mac OS X 10.5/10.6, or Mac OS X 10.4 printer software.
    • Choose the correct margins for your paper size in your printing program.
    • Use the Print Preview option in your Windows, Mac OS X 10.5/10.6, or Mac OS X 10.4 printer software to check your margins before you print.
    • If you're printing from a web browser, the pages may not print correctly due to the web page design. Try the following:
      • 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 web browser to view the changes.
    Scanning or Copying
    • Make sure your original is positioned against the back left corner of the glass. Move your original away from the edges slightly.
