Program Settings

Although the printer might be correctly configured to print in Portrait mode, the program itself might be configured to print in Landscape mode. These settings are typically adjusted by locating a Page Setup or Page Layout menu and then looking for Orientation.

Change mode in printer settings

Open the Control Panel and then the Devices and Printers option. Find your printer in the Devices and Printers window and right-click the icon with your mouse. In the menu that appears, select Printing Preferences and find the option for Orientation in the preferences window.

Start > Devices and Printers > Right click your printer > Printer Properties > Preferences > Page Setup and change the Orientation.
Go to Layout > Orientation, and then select Landscape.
Click the Printer icon in the toolbar. In the Page Handling area of the Print dialog box, make sure that Auto-Rotate and Center is selected. (This option is selected by default.) Click OK or Print.
If your printouts are slanted, try these solutions: Slide the edge guides against the edges of the paper. Select a higher print quality setting in your printer software. Align the print head.
The Layout Direction buttons determine the order in which each document page prints on each sheet.
This issue may occur if you set your document or section margins closer to the edge of the paper than your printer can print. Most printers cannot print all the way to the edge of the paper because of physical limitations in the way that the printer handles paper.
Step 1: Click the three dots on the upper right corner of your Google Chrome browser to expand the More Options list. Step 2: Select Print. Step 3: Click on More Settings. Step 4: Select the correct paper size from the dropdown.

Prints blank pages, won't print from computer
ANSWER : Don’t know why you replaced the fuser, but assuming you had print before, then it must have been something you did during the procedure. Only thing I can suggest is to recheck your work. Just because you reinstalled a connector doesn’t mean that it is seated firmly enough to work. Any flat ribbon connectors that you removed and reinstalled, check to see that the contacts are all flat and not peeled back.

Print file sent but no printing occurs
ANSWER : Been working on these since they first were released. Never seen a problem like yours. If it happens again, try doing an engine test, as it bypasses the formatter board. The engine test is located at the right side of the manual tray opening. Look for a hole in the side wall. Stick something like a paper clip into it to actuate the test button. It will then print a lined test page. If it does that, then it points to the formatter board as the cause of your problem.

Canon MF4450 quit printing!?
ANSWER : If the sheets are blank, both from printing and copying and no error message, that points to a lack of high voltage. The high voltage is not checked at any time and that would explain the lack of a message. High voltage charges both the toner cartridge and the paper to pull down the toner to its surface. Lack of high voltage at either point would result in a blank page. You could isolate it by printing a page and stopping it halfway through by opening the door to the cartridge. Pull the cartridge out and look at the drum surface and see if there is any print on it. If there is, then there isn’t any hv to the charge transfer roller. If there isn’t, then there is no hv to the cartridge, probably none to the transfer either. In that case, I would suspect a HV board.
