For the last month or so, my Xerox Workcentre 6015 has decided to print virtually everything in landscape and about 200%-300% magnification. My printer settings are pretty standard: A4 plain paper, auto orientation, etc etc and I don't see anything that would cause this behavior--can someone tell me what I've missed, please?

Thanks in advance

I would uninstall and reinstall your printer drivers




Edit: Use the dropdown box for your OS.

Also, check the print settings in the program you're printing from and/or in your default printer settings.


I have seen accidental changes in either location, and anything you reset in, say, MS-Word will be used as reset until you reset them to something else.  If you reset in the default printer properties absolutely everything will use those settings unless you override them from the program you're printing from.
