I have an Epson 2550. When I scan an A4 document in the resulting print ends up with the document in the middle of an A4 piece of paper and a large border all around. As I have to scan music in fairly regularly it is hopless.

Hi Richard. I have just tried out your instructions. the first thin is that when i go to copy then settings it doesn't give me an option to haave Borderless. I tried A4 and then tried scanning but I still ended up with the document in the middle of the paper.

You will see the option where it says border, select that and you can set it to borderless.

I can see border but it won’t let me select it. When I try going up and down the options I just get a box that says reduce enlarge actual size. I can’t select the word border

Ok I will leave it as it is starting to cost. Thanks anyway.

You are referring to a service the website offers, which being optional, can be ignored if you do not wish to use it.

Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the printer, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please
