Help with printer pleae

  learning slowly 17:07 07 Oct 2007

I have a Epson Stylus photo 915 printer running with windows xp.

It has a mind of its own and keeps printing in 4x6 instead of A4, which is the size listed in the printer preferences software.

The test page prints in A4 but if I select a part of this thread for example it will print it in 4x6.

This is driving me bonkers. Please help me.

Might be worth un-installing and re-installing the printer driver.

If your printer is anything like the older Epson printers I have you will find two opportunities to control this.

1). Control Panel > Printers > Epson 915
Right click and in Properties you can set the paper size to A4. This is now the default size for all printing with that printer.

2). When you are printing say a jpg picture and select Print, the first window shows your printer. There is a properties button which should allow you to select paper size from a dropdown list. It should now show A4 but you can change this to suit you.

Windows test page will always print at its own size (close to A4 you cannot change this).

Job done - I am now printing A4 size, although I don't know how long it will continue.

Bl**dy printer!!!

Thank you
