    Canon PIXMA iP5200R printing problems
    When I initially installed this printer it seemed to work fine but for some reason whenever I print something out everything it is reduced in size by more than 50% and is squeezed into the left hand corner of the page. It is unreadable.

    Can anyone please suggest where I am going wrong?

    Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Edward

    Have you checked your settings within the print menu? Make sure your scale is at 100% and that your paper settings are for the size paper you are printing on.

    Knale - thank you for your reply.

    If I am in a word document the print settings are

    paper size: US letter
    scale: 100%

    I have tried to change US letter to A4 but it doesn't seem to retain the change.
    However, I can't believe this is what is causing the printing problem.

    Any other suggestions?

    I am having the opposite problem.
    When I print it comes out HUGE.
    I need to print e-mails quite often and what should be 1 page of print is 3 pages.
    I am not sure where to go to change.
