My printout has incorrect margins. What should I do?

  • The solutions will depend on if 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 Windows, Macintosh OS X 10.5 or Macintosh OS X 10.3 and 10.4 printer software.
    • Choose the correct margins for your paper size in your printing program.
    • Use the Print Preview option in your Windows, Macintosh OS X 10.5 or Macintosh OS X 10.3 and 10.4 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 Load Paper.
    • If you're using a Macintosh, make sure you choose the correct printer in the Page Setup window and the Print window.
    • 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.
