Why are my margins incorrect?
The solution 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 Windows or Mac OS X 10.5 or 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 or Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.3 and 10.4 printer software to check your margins before you print.
- Make sure your paper is positioned correctly in the cassette. See Load paper.
- If you’re using a Macintosh, make sure you choose the correct printer in the Page Setup and Print windows.
- 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. This software automatically adjusts web pages to fit your printed page. Do not use it with Internet Explorer 7 because this functionality is built-in.
- 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.
