Hello, All. I need to ask why does my Ricoh Aficio BP20 laser printer always spit out an extra blank paper in addition to the printed document.

Do I need a new printer? Computer is running Windows XP Professional with 2GB of RAM with a 3.3ghz Processor.

Please I need to fix this soon.

I'm no expert, but a couple of things come to mind.

Before you print, look at Print Preview and see if it shows that extra blank page.

If it does, you might just have your cursor in the blank page. Try back spacing till the cursor is in the last page of text.

Alternatively, when the printer window opens, use the selection to print a limited number of pages instead of all pages.

Check the printer properties and turn of the seperator page. You may have to do it on the printer itself VIA the various menus if the seperator page is not on in Windows. It inserts this to seperate documents in an office setting for easier document retrival.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
