MF645cx (laser) cannot print borderless...

Hi guys,

 

I have a Canon MF645, fully set up with all of the correct drivers installed. However, I cannot get it to print photos truly borderlessly. Even when I select options such as "Fill page" and "borderless" with a photo of the correct aspect ratio, there is ALWAYS a thin white border on the outside of the prints. This is a huge pain and means that I have to trim the print manually.

 

Has anyone had any luck with this? 🙂

Hi John,

 

Bawically I have now found out that borderless with laser printers is not possible due to technology limitations. Thanks so much for your help but I think that now closes the topic. 🙂

Do you have a setting in the driver where you can adjust the amount of print extension for borderless printing?

Hi John. I forgot to mention that I have tried to reduce the margins to 0 but still it adds thin white borders. Maybe it's just not possible to do it with this range of printers...

Hi. Print extension is different. You may be correct about the ability to do it with your printer, but check te driver for something similar to the image below.

Because of tolerances, when the printer enlarges an image to be borderless it doesn't always fill the page. The extension control enlarges the image.
