Fix Printer only prints half the page

If you are trying to print a document and your printer is only printing half a page, there may be several reasons and not all of them may be printer related.

First, try printing a test page. Check your printer’s manual to see how it prints a test page. Some printers have a special button or option on the printer’s device control panel. If the test page prints well, try the solutions below.

If the print quality is damaged ie, there may not be enough ink to print everything, check the ink levels in the cartons and refill if need it.

1. Check the printer configuration

The printer can be configured to print on smaller paper while the document was created on larger paper. Make sure you know the amount of paper you have brought into the printer.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. go to Hardware & sound> Tools and printers.
  3. Right-click on the printer and select Printer Options from the context table.
  4. Go to Dropdowns original size and output size.
  5. Select page size that you are introduced to the printer in both dropdowns.
  6. Click Submit and try printing again.

2. Check the page size of the document

Make sure the page size for the document matches the size of the paper being imported into the printer. The method for resizing a document page will vary depending on the app in which it is open and you are printing.

In Microsoft Word;

  1. Open the document.
  2. Go to Tab shape.
  3. Open the Size reduction and choose the right size.
  4. Try printing the document.

3. Uninstall and reset printer

The printer may not have calibrated correctly when you installed it or the calibration may have been corrupted. The easiest way to fix this is to uninstall and reinstall the printer.

  1. Open the Options app with Win + I keyboard shortcut.
  2. go to Tools.
  3. Select the Tab printers and scanners.
  4. Choose your printer and click Remove tool
  5. Disconnect the printer and restart the system.
  6. Reconnect the printer and will install automatically.
  7. Try printing the document.

4. Change the app

The problem may be with the app you are trying to print from. Try to change. Alternatively, try saving the document as a PDF and then printing it.


The page you choose for the printer and the size it is designed to print from the app should always be present. If it doesn’t, your prints will go wrong. If you are unable to resize the paper a document was created on eg an envelope or booklet, change the size the printer is designed to print on.
