Question about Brother MFC-9840CDW Laser Printer

1 Answer

I am trying to duplex print a document in MS Publisher, landscape orientation. I've gone through all the regular set-up, even using the wizard. No matter what configuration I use, the backside of the page is positioned incorrectly. It prints the backside upside down on the page. Any suggestions?

Try setting every other page so that it is upside down. It is what I have done when feeding something through the copy function and I wanted it to end up double sided, so it should work in your document as well.

Why is my printer printing in landscape mode when it is set to portrait mode?


Click File, Print, Then open the printer properties and make sure it is set to portrait. Also if you are working in MS office make sure to check the orientation tab. The document orientation tab overides the printer settings

Try printing to a different printer if possible. This may shed some light on whether the problem is with the printer or with Excel. You could also open the file on a completely different PC and printer to see if something is corrupt in the file. Also try creating a completely new document to see if it will print in landscape. Can you print in landscape orientation from MS Word or another program?

UNABLE TO PRINT LANDSCAPE


To print photos in landscape orientation use Irfanview. Install this software and use it to view photos. Very easy settings are available in print options from its options menu.
To print documents in landscape, choose landscape orientation from page layout.
For all other applications, set the orientation from the printer's properties inside the control panel in Windows.
Note: You cannot adjust it to print in landscape for direct copying from the printer's panel.

I am having trouble with booklet style printing -- under Vista


After a great deal of frustration and trying every permutation possible I succeeded amid an ever rising mountain of paper! . . .and find that I have to totally ignore the "Booklet printing" option . . . but ask it to print landscape; 1 page per sheet; flip on short edge.
Now I need to do the same to crack the sytem for the Cannon Pixma IP4000 inkjet.
Thank you for your consideration.

Well, I don't have a document in that format exactly to play with, but assuming you are using the PCL 5c driver, it should be a fairly simple task. If your using another driver (ie: RPCS) then it will be similar, just a little different looking dialog box.
Open your document, Select "Print", select "properties", you can change the "orientation", and "layout" (pages per sheet), 'duplex', and staple (assuming you have a booklet finisher installed and configured in your printer properties). There is an icon in the left corner that changes with the settings and should help you with the them. Obviously, you should only print 1 set, or even just a page or 2 to check the output. These types of things are always a bit of trial and error until you have done it a couple times. I hope this helps

Designing a document in book form and printing in Word 2007


When you select Book fold for your page setup, Microsoft Word prints two pages on one side of the paper. When you fold the paper, it opens like a book. This option is intended for documents that have more than two pages.
1. Set up your document as a booklet.
When you create a booklet, it's best to start with a new, blank document so that you have better control over the placement of text, graphics, and other elements. You can add a book fold to an existing document, but you may have to reposition some elements once the book fold is in place.
A. Start a new, blank document.
B. On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
C. In the Multiple pages list, select Book fold.
If your document is not set to landscape orientation, Microsoft Word sets it to landscape.
D. In the Inside and Outside boxes, type or select the amount of space you want for the inside and outside margins (margin: The blank space outside the printing area on a page.).
If you need even more space along the fold to accommodate binding, type or select the amount of space you want in the Gutter box.
E. In the Sheets per booklet list, select the number of pages you want to include in a single booklet.
If the number of pages in the document exceeds the number of pages you select for a booklet, Word prints the document as multiple booklets.
F. Select any other options you want in the Page Setup dialog box.
G. Add text, graphics, headers or footers (header and footer: A header, which can consist of text or graphics, appears at the top of every page in a section. A footer appears at the bottom of every page. Headers and footers often contain page numbers, chapter titles, dates, and author names.), and other elements to your document as usual.
2. On the File menu, click Print.
3. Set options for printing on both sides of the paper.
If you're using a duplex printer (one that automatically prints on both sides of the paper)
Click Properties, and then set the options you want. If you have a choice of setting the page orientation and duplex options, select landscape orientation, and flip the document on the short edge or short side.
If you aren't using a duplex printer
In the Print dialog box, select the Manual duplex check box. Word will print all of the pages that appear on one side of the paper, and then prompt you to turn the stack over and feed the pages again.
4. Select the page range you want to print.
If you click Current page or Pages, Word prints the page you indicate, plus the three other pages that belong on the same sheet of paper.
If you click Selection, Word prints your selection using the default page layout instead of booklet layout.

Canon MP610 Printer When automatic duplex printing in landscape orientation, the reverse side is printed upside down. Duplex Printing in portrait mode works fine. Can you help?


I haven't found a way to do this using the printer settings.

There is no (apparent) simple solution, but needing tp print a 56 page pdf form the only solution was to load the pdf into Adobe Acrobat and then in the 'document' pull down menu select 'rotate pages', then select '180 degrees' and also 'rotate even pages only'. This then prints OK.

The down side is that you need full Adobe Acrobat rather than just the reader.

I have been unable to rotate pages through 180 degrees in MS Word but it is possible using MS Publisher.

Printing Envelopes


Be sure you have set the PRNIT PREFFERENCES on your program that you are using to print the envelope to accept a #10 envelope and not 8.5x11 paper, you ALSO must set the PRINTER PREFERNECE to MANUAL FEED and not automatic so it won't look to the paper tray.

How do I print on both sides of my paper


On printers without a duplexer (a device that flips the paper to allow printing on both sides) you will have to print the first side, manually flip and print the second side. If you're using MS Word or MS Publisher you can easily configure the program to organize the pages for you: Start a new, blank document. -Click File, Page Setup then click the Margins tab. -In the Multiple pages section select Book fold. -Set your document to landscape orientation if it is not already. -In the Inside and Outside boxes, type or select the amount of space you want for your margins. -In the Sheets per booklet list select the number of pages you want to include in a single booklet. If the number of pages in the document exceeds the number of pages you select for a booklet, Word prints the document as multiple booklets. -When you get ready to print make sure you check the manual duplex box (should be in the first dialog box that appears when you click on File, Print). Word will print the first page, and then prompt you to take the pages that just printed and load them into the input tray of your printer. The trick is to learn how to orient the pages correctly for your printer. Good luck.
