aligning an image on a docucolor 250

Jump to solution
Product Name: Docucolor 250
Operating System: Windows 10

Hello,

I'm printing some booklets on my 250 and despite the fact that there is a nice 1/4 margin all the way around on the pdf, when I print the booket everything is shifted so that there is no margin on the top and a large margin on the bottom.  Would someone please help me figure this out.  I will appreciate any direction. 

 

Thanks!

 

Mike

If there is no margin at the top, the booklet isn't the problem, it is the machine is misaligned, you cannot print past a quarter inch from the edge of the paper, it is supposed to be impossible (You can't do full bleed on Xerox devices), you should have a 4mm (1/4 inch) border all the way around.

Moving past that, there is no driver for the 250 that will work in Windows 10 properly, so either you are using CWS4, CWS5 and importing pdf to print, or printing with another driver, I would assume one from a 260 on Xerox.com that supports Windows 8, or a 250 from EFI.com

So part 1, you should be able to log into the 250 itself, and go to Machine Status > System Settings > System Settings > Common Settings > Maintenance > Adjust Image Position and maybe fix the shift that makes it go off the page where it shouldn't.

Most often, when the booklet sizes incorrectly, it means Imposition reduction failed, and this happens often with EFI products, they always assume you did it wrong, so when you create a doc as 8.5*11, it does not need to be resized at all to make a book on 11*17, but they do. Luckily, it is as simple as unchecking the box, seen here.

Joe,  Thank you as always.  I haven't tried your solutoin yet but wanted to share one other thing with you.  I have recently switched from a creo to the cws5.  I had the same problem with the creo.  Does this change your answer at all.  I'm assuming no, but thought I would ask.

It negates all the driver stuff, but the stuff at the copier will be identical, and that is where the real problem is anyway, I was reaching with the driver stuff, easier to get it all out at once than over 6 responses back and forth between us ;-)
