Hi there. In our school we have 2 dell 1720 printers. Today a teacher brought a page to print and i notice on one of the printers, it was printing the words on the left correclty but when i use the other printer it was missing some of the words on the left eg

Dfine and not Define....it was like the e was missing..

Is this some margin error in the printer or something? How do you fix this?

slingingshot15,

How are you doing?

Did you try cycling the printer (unplug it from the wall, wait 1 minute) then plug it back in. Memory could be full.

Also, you can factory reset the print by doing the following:
1. Power off the printer from the back switch.
2. Open front cover.
3. Hold Down “Continue” & “Cancel” button while turning printer back on.

I wouldn't say it is a margin error in Word, because you said it printed correctly on one print, just not the other, so the hardware (the printer model) is capable of printing that margin/area of the paper.

Hope this helps,
Kevin

I had a problem with this on one of our MFU's and it was down to the driver. From memory, I think we updated the driver (or maybe used a PS driver instead) and the problem was resolved.

This used to happen randomly and had no consistency to it.
