hi there tallan,
could you provide the community with a little more information to help narrow down the steps for you? Things like your printer model and your operating system help out a lot.

Thanks for the interest JohnB. The model is a Deskjet F2480 and the operating system is either Windows XP Home SP3 or Mac OSX, depending on which computer I'm using. I think I've solved the problem at least temporarily, but it would be useful to get an expert opinion. I often find that what looks like a fix only works in certain circumstances and I always use A4 paper.

Follow the instructions below to set A4 as the default paper size,
1. Open printers and faxes
2. Right click on the Deskjet F2480 printer icon, and then select Printer Preferences
3. Make the paper size changes within the driver preferences, and then click apply & Ok to save the settings.
