Regardless of margins and paper settings this printer does not seem to print correctly on 1/2,/1/3 sheets.  Has anyone had any luck with Brother printers? What might the problem/fix be? Printer is brand new.

when you pull up the print preview does it look fine? Generally printers print only what is sent to them... do you have another printer to send the job to just to test that it is the printer?

I have had pretty okay experience with brother printers... but I have also seen them ship duds...

Which half of the page does not print? Assuming A4 (Letter) in portrait format, is it top/bottom or left/right?

Can you post a sample print?
