My Sony UPD-150 is printing on only 3/4 of the 5X7 sheet. It looks like a torn border where the image ends. What's wrong?

One of the pins is bent. Its not closing completely so when it prints the heads are not touching the media evenly causing this effect. We have four of these printers and have seen this before. You need to take some pliers and straighten the bent pin in the door to match the one on the opposite side. These pins are located near the top edges of the printer door.

Horizontal clipping. May happen when the roll ends in the middle of printing an image. Could also happen when multi-pick occurs and two sheets are loaded together and they do not completely overlap.

Recommended action

Make sure the image size is within the selected WIDTH of the sheet.

How do you make lines appear on an excel sheet?

I'm not sure what Version you're using, so I'll assume after Excel 2010.
At the top of the page, under the Home tab and directly under the Font window, there is an icon which looks like a window frame (dotted all around except on the bottom edge).
In your spreadsheet you have to select the area you want to work on. You can select a single cell to add lines to or the whole spreadsheet. Click on the icon I described above and a menu box will pop down. There many choices which allow you to select lines on all sides of your work. I prefer the one at the bottom which says 'More Borders'. With that window you select the edges you want lines on, the thickness/type of the line, or put an outline.
I think that's enough for now and I hope that gets you started.

HP PhotoSmart C3140 All-In-One Inkjet Printer will not print in color

ok let's try this

Step One: Remove, inspect, and reseat the problem cartridge
Figura 4: Opening the printer cover (make sure the power is on)
c00308401.gif The print cartridge may not have full electrical contact with the printer. Removing and reinstalling the cartridge may help.
[img src="" alt="">
NOTA:HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges.
  1. Make sure the printer is on. Press the Power button if it is not lit.
  • Open the printer cover, then wait until the print cartridge carriage is idle and silent.
  • Press down lightly on the end of the problem cartridge to release it. Figura 5: Removing the tri-color cartridge
    [img src="" alt="" border="0">
  • Slide the cartridge out and inspect it: [img src="" alt="">
    ATTENZIONEDo not touch the copper electrical contacts or the ink nozzles.
    Figura 6: Electrical contacts and nozzles
    [img src="" alt="" border="0">1 - Copper electrical contacts
    2 - Nozzles
    Check the electrical contacts for debris.
    Make sure all the clear nozzle protective tape has been removed.

    ATTENZIONEDo not attempt to remove the copper electrical strip!
    Figura 7: Removing the clear nozzle protective tape
    [img src="" alt="" border="0">Printer Reference Guide supplied with your printer.
  • If the cartridge is compatible, reinstall it in the printer:
    • Cartridges marked with a triangle go into the left carriage slot.
    • Cartridges marked with a square or pentagon go into the right carriage slot.
    Figura 8: Sliding the cartridge into the carriage
    [img src="" alt="" border="0"> Figura 9: Pushing the cartridge into place
    [img src="" alt="" border="0">
  • Step Two: Clean the problem cartridge contacts
    1. Gather the following items to clean the cartridge and carriage:
      • Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge.
      • Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well).
      • Sheets of paper or a paper towel to rest the cartridge on during cleaning.
    2. Open the cartridge access door and wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
    3. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
    4. Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
      NOTA:Do not leave the cartridges outside of the printer for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the printer for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles.
    5. Dip a clean foam-rubber swab or lint-free cloth into distilled water, and then squeeze any excess water from it.
    6. Clean only the copper-colored contacts
      Figura 10: Clean the contacts
      [img src="" alt="" border="0">1 - Copper-colored contacts
      2 - Ink nozzles (do not clean)
    7. Repeat these steps for the other cartridge.
    8. Lightly moisten another cotton swab with distilled water, and then squeeze any excess water from the swab.
    9. Use the swab to clean the electrical contacts in the carriage, located inside the printer on the carriage slots.
      Figura 11: The electrical contacts in the cartridge slots
      [img src="" alt="Image: The electrical contacts in the cartridge slots" title="Image: The electrical contacts in the cartridge slots" border="0">
    10. Wait 10 minutes to allow the cartridge and carriage electrical contacts to dry.
    11. Reinstall the cartridges.
    12. Close the cartridge access door.
    13. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer.
    14. Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
    15. Try to print a page.
    16. If you are still unable to print, repeat these steps to clean and reseat the cartridges. Multiple cleanings might be necessary to restore printing.

    Uneven borders how do i fix it

    If you are trying to do this by setting borders manually you are probably running into the Canon's minefield of "minimal printed borders" which throw off calculations. The manual setting is primarily for off-setting images rather than for perfectly centered images.
    For a centered image, the borders are automatically set by the relationship of image sizing to paper size, with "center image" checked and other sizing options unchecked. This has worked perfectly in the three Canon printers I've owned, whereas trying to set even borders manually was always off a bit and a real pain.
    If you want the same border width for all sides, the aspect ratio of the paper and image will have to be different, strangely enough, for all but square images. For 1" borders all around on 10x15 paper, e.g., your 2:3 AR image will have to be cropped and sized to 8X13" dimensions.Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

    I print borderless several times & found white border both side

    This is because the image is of a different aspect ratio than the paper. That is, if your image's dimension is 8x12 inch and you are trying to print it on an 8x10-inch paper, the printer will adjust the longer side to 10 inches. Hence the shorter side will become less than 8 inches. This will lead to white border on the shorter side. If you try to adjust this, the longer side will fall out of the paper and hence in the print, this portion will be cut.

    So please understand that this is normal. One option to prevent this is to crop the image to fit the paper size.

    Part of print is missing (far right or far left side),instead ver

    Sounds like you have a torn/missed fixing film. look up over the fixing unit (the one that gets one) and try to find a gray tu, it should be complete, from left to right and not torn. no parts should be missing. if one border is like orange or missing then your problem is the fixing film.

    Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line

    This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh
