I want to copy a newspaper cutting that is about 9"x4"

Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 4 years ago.
Thanks for the update, I am just researching about the problem and found that your printer model apparently does not have the capability to reduce or enlarge copies. There is only option, which you can try and that is the 'Fit-To-Page' function, that might enlarge a small original to fit a full page, possibly.

You can enable the Fit-To-Page function by pressing the Fit-To-Page button after setting up the copying operation with the other copy controls on the machine, such as the Paper control to select the paper size the copy goes onto.The Fit-To-Page function can either enlarge or reduce an original to the size of the paper you are printing on.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to let me know…
