Default Why does only the left hand side of the page ever print ?

My 14 year old son uses an Epson RX420 printer to do his homework on. The trouble is, every time he prints out a word document, only one side of the A4 page ever prints ( the left hand side ) and the other side of the page stays completely blank with all the text cut off. Has anyone else experienced something like this and does the problem indicate a problem with the printer or the way he is setting up the document margins, etc. I notice that the ink in the printer is starting to run fairly low so don't know if this might be a factor ?

So do other things like emails and web pages print ok? If so, then it will be the settings in Word which are causing the problem.

Have you tried 'page preview' before printing to see if all the text is shown there on the page to be printed.
Also have you had any paper jams or printed on heavy card, maybe the print rollers are askew.
