My printer suddenly started printing at 1/4 of the size of the page. I checked the settings a dozen times, uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, and it just isn't working. I set the # of pages per page to 4 and then back to 1, and that worked once, and then it reverted to the quarter size page again. Even the print preview is totally fine, but when it prints it comes out tiny.
I've come across a couple of pretty old posts with the same issue, but no one seems to have a good answer. Does anyone know what to do about this? I don't really want to get a new printer....

What operating system are you using? Windows or Mac?
What application are you printing from?
In the application, if you click on File and then Print (or Print Preview), does the previewed image appear the correct size?

I'm using a mac. I printed from google drive, but then also from a PDF. It did the same thing from both. The print preview says that it is the correct size, that there is one page per sheet, and that it is fit to page. It's really just some miscommunication somewhere, but I don't know how to fix it.

What application are you printing from? When you open your PDF or your item from Google Drive, is it opening with Google Chrome?
Have you tried printing your PDF using Adobe Acrobat Reader?

Did you try printing the PDF using Adobe Acrobat Reader?

Hi Patrick- I didn't get a chance to try out adobe, but it printed fine from another computer, so I think it has to be either my computer or the adapter. thanks for your help.
