HP Deskjet 1220C printing A3 as A4?!

Post by eddie5903 » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:59 pm

I've been using Mint for quite a while now, and have been able to print things out on both my HP Deskjet and HP Laserjet printers using HP Linux Imaging and Printing drivers. The laserjet is a network printer, and the deskjet via USB, will both print in A4. The HP Deskjet is also capable of printing in A3, and this is where I have found a problem.

I was recently given the task of printing out some colour posters, some of which were required in A3. I was successfully able to print out posters as A5 and A4 but when I went to print them in A3 it doesn't print out properly - see attached picture.

I have installed the latest driver from HP's website this afternoon, and surprise surprise... :x

Any thoughts or comments would be welcomed.
