The minimum left and right margins are 3.0 mm (0.12 inch) each. The maximum printable width is 203.2 mm (8.0 inches).
Look in the technical specifications section for information on the top/bottom and left/right margins. Another easy way to find the margins is to use Microsoft Word. Change your default printer to be the printer for which you want to identify the margins. Click the Margins button and then click the Custom Margins…
Both the MLA and APA style guides require 1-inch margins on the top, bottom and both sides of the page. In most cases, when you open Microsoft Word, the margins will already be set to 1-inch.
Most desktop printers can`t print all the way to the edge, thus leaving you with a non-printable margin. While the exact dimensions vary from printer to printer, the limit for most models is 1/4″ (0.25″).
Safety margins are 1/8″ margins inside the cut line of a design. The safety margin area is between the orange and red dotted lines. The safety margin area is the space in the main print area that runs the risk of being cut due to the error tolerance of the print shift.
Check the Margin settings under File>Page Setup to make sure that the right margin is OK. Also check the paragraph format to make sure that you do not have a negative right indent which could be causing the text to extend into an area that is unprintable by your printer.
In Word, borderless printing can be achieved by setting the page margins to 0 under “file” and “page setup”. To print borderless with Adobe Reader, you have click the “file” tab and select “print”. Select your printer from the drop-down menu. Now click on “properties” and select “borderless printing”.
On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Margins. Do one of the following: To use predefined margins, click Normal, Wide, or Narrow. Tip: If you previously used a custom margin setting, that setting is available as the Last Custom Setting option.
I would say that the standard margin is 12,7 mm.
The printing area of the A4 format size is 625 cm² or 0.062m² -the standard format for personal printers.

Darker (not black) vertical band about 3/8" wide 3 1/2" from left edge only on odd sheets and only in duplex mode
ANSWER : If you are using letter sized paper, then this is a horizontal band since the paper feeds in landscape mode. Either way it is a really odd problem. There is no way it could be either the fuser or the toner as both of those would consistently do the problem, not intermittently. Also, does the band go all the way across the page or does it have borders on either end.

Left side light printing
ANSWER : A possibility could be the Charge Transfer Roller mount on the left side broke and it’s not lifting up to push the paper up to the cartridge drum. Take the cartridge out and push down on each end and see if they respond in the same way.

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.

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.
