I don't know if anyone else has had this problem but when I try to print off photos my printer prints the second half of the photo on the first half of the paper leaving the second half blank. Has anyone an idea on how to fix this?

If you can view the full picture in your computer, then you'll need to start by reinstalling your drivers. You can also try to direct print (if your printer supports it) to see if it is in fact the printer or the software setup.

If you can't view the full image on your computer, buy a new memory card, your current one is busted.


I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.

I've tried reinstalling the drivers and I can view the full image on my computer, it's not the memory card as I'm printing off the hard drive.

What is the measurement of the image you're trying to print?
Are you telling the software to print a certain size photo?
What software are you using to send the image to the printer?

This is all useful info...............tw

It does it with all sizes of print and I've tried it with photoshop, lightroom and windows own software all with the same result.

Will your printer print out anything else normally, such as a word document or a web page?

Yes everything else prints normally it's just photos it's having problems with.

Are you printing on specialized paper for your photos as apposed to a normal text print on plain paper?

I ask this because I have an HP 1200 series, 13x19 printer that will print text and pictures perfectly on plain paper but on glossy photo paper, it too starts printing at places on the paper other then where its supposed to. With mine, it seems to be something about glossy media that screws up the feeder/sensor.

Cheers for that but it would seem strange if this was so on mine as it is ment to be a photo printer.

OK, so the text you said it printed normally was on photo paper or plain paper?

The key here to solving the problem is using a process of elimination.

Yes! That would be an important test to see if the issue is media related.

Cheers!
