  1. Print and Copy are two different functions.
  2. Your Operating system and version impacts which printer software you are using and which application are available.
  3. The software you are using to submit the job has much to do with the results.
  4. The paper size / type must be set on the front panel and/or Embedded Web Server (EWS)

 

Check / Adjust / Retain the Paper at the Printer Panel

 

Open Printer Tray,

If you have not yet done so, add desired paper type

Close Tray

IF applicable for your printer:

Look for a message on the Printer Control Panel,

Click Modify (wording varies), set the paper size and type, Click OK

 

NOTE:  If the size of the Paper Size is not in the Drop-down menu, Select Custom (likely the last selection in the list)

 

 

Set the Preferences - Windows

 

  1. Check / enable the printer as the “Default Printer”

 

Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Set as Default

 

  1. Select and adjust settings in each category for the Media (kind of paper), source (tray), and paper size.

 

Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Printing Preferences

OR

Windows key + S (search for) Printers and Scanners

Left-Click on (your) Printer > Manage > Printing Preferences

 

Next

Tab Printing Shortcuts > Click / Highlight your preferred shortcut > Click Apply > Click OK to exit
