You have to set the paper size to whatever you want + boarderless.   For example, 4x6 boarderless.

Re: setting print margins for deskjet 3050 j610

When you start a print job (File > Print or Command-P) choose 4x6 boarderless as the paper size and 4x6 as the print size.  That should work.

[ Edited ]

The specific model does not support any borderless size beside Borderless B5, as you may find be the product specification below:

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02105426

 

Changing the margins to 0 will be rejected as it is not supported by the hardware.

 

The minumum margins are as following:

Top: 0.06

Right & Left: 0.125

Bottom: 0.57

 

In order to get the image printed centerly, you should set the bottom , left and right margins as described above, and change the top margin as 0.57.

Re: setting print margins for deskjet 3050A j610

I have a problem with left margins. When I print 2 pages per page I lose about 3 characters at the left hand side of the printout. I thought reducing left hand margin would solve the problem, but I do not know how to change margin. Pl help.

I agree and even i have same issue, most of people try to give generic answer as they never face this issue. This problem is with HP 3050A printer.
