Printing ~ I made a silly mistake

For the last week or so I have been having unexpected Paper Jams, but nothing appeared to be causing them. Very annoying and lots of wasted ink.

The it dawned on me. I had just got a new batch of A4 Paper and, while loading the first sheets, I had re-set the Width Guides.

Flash of Light ~ I re-set the Sliding Guide Thingies, but slightly looser and all is now well again.

Such an easy mistake to make. I even had the printer, totally disconnected, and with me shaking it, upside-down in the middle of the room sitting room, in the hope of dislodging whatever was causing the obstruction. I felt mildly foolish and then decided to pass it on as it must be a quite easy problem to create.

Don`t worry we all get caught out now and then.

I spent ages wondering why stuff I printed from the net insisted on coming out landscape.

I eventually realised that about a week ago, I had set the printing preferences to landscape for one thing and forgot to set it back to portrait after.

Duh.
