How do you configure paper size in Windows 7 with Phaser 6500N PCL 2.6.16

Jump to solution

In the Printing Prefereneces, I see Paper Size:

I select custom size, and then underneath it says Frequently used paper sizes can be defined in [Custom Paper Size] button in printer properties.  I believe the doc says the same and says to right mouse click.  If I go to start, devices and printers, and right click on the driver, there are two tabs under properties.  They are [General] and [Hardware]  Neither says anything about paper size, and appear to be dead ends.

 

Now maybe you mean the web page.  If I go the the Phaser 6500N properties on the web interface, there is system setup, which has the "Nearest Size" setting and the PCL settings, which allow a paper size setting, but I really don't see and opportunity for a custom size.  I set the PCL size to match the paper in my tray (along with the application).

 

If you left click on the printer, and double click on adjust print options, printing preferences is brought up, which is back where we started.

 

If you do select a custom paper size here, I selected 9x6.7, and put comparable paper in the tray, despite all that effort, it prints 2" above the top of the page, apparently thinking it is 11" even though I specified 9".

Printer Properties and Properties are not the same place.

It still took me a while to find the Custom Paper Size button. You need to select the Configuration Tab, then Custom Paper Size is at the very bottom.

Other ways to set the paper size is to go to the front panel, hit the up or down arrow to get to Trays, select the tray (I only have one), then new custom size, then Y, and use up and down arrows to get the height, do a return arrow, then select X, then use up and down arrows to set X, the hit the menu button to end it.

The 3rd way is with the CentreWare Internet services (web page), then General Setup, then Tray Setting, select Custom size, enter Y and X, and save changes.
