Wide margin on epson 7800

I am getting 9 inch margins on the the leading edge of roll paper. Is there something I can do - I am setting the leading edge for 3mm

First thing to do is update your print driver and test again.


Continuing the discussion from Wide margin on epson 7800:

this problem has persisted through two installation of the printer drivers. The leading edge is printing with a 9 inch margin. sheets with insufficient margins are just fed through the machine and larger sheets of paper must be installed. I am wondering how I tell that utilities associated with this printer have been installed.

I have found taht teh printer is inconsistent, that it does not exercise control over where the image starts on each job for many prints. Something is eratic. Also, is it possible to make inches the default unit rather than metric units?
