    Suddenly, images won't center on the paper on 3800

    A new wrinkle. Things have been printing without a hitch and now, suddenly, I can't seem to get an image to print in the center of the paper regardless of size paper used. This on a MAC running 10.6.3. In most instances, the image is actually printing off the edge so I'm not even getting the entire image. Neither printing from PS4 directly or through the ColorBurst RIP seem to make a difference. Downloaded the latest driver from Epson and still no fix.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!
    Tim

    I wish I knew. My 2880 has never center images properly. My old 2200 did the same thing.

    Maybe the problem is OS related? I use CS4 on a Windows box, and my 3800 prints have been properly centered from day one. Was there maybe an update to the OS just before the problem started? That could explain why multiple applications all have the same problem. Just a thought, something to check...

    Thanks Lisa. I did look into that but haven't found any google-able info that helps. I think there was a software update, albeit a minor one. I've made some progress though, I was able to get an image centered on an 8.5x11 sheet. Now have to try it larger and see what happens.

    Tim - check this setting:
    File > Print . . .
    Page Setup . . .
    in the Page Setup Dialog box - Format For: Make sure Epson Stylus Pro 3800 is selected (not any printer)

    Thanks! I'll give that another look since it's easy to blow right by it when you're frustrated.
