Printer printing half page

Hi,

I have set up my printer que as follows

$ sh que/full sys$printer
Printer queue SYS$PRINTER, idle, on STELLA::"x.x.x.x:9100", mounted form DEFAULT
/BASE_PRIORITY=4 /DEFAULT=(FEED,FORM=DEFAULT) Lowercase /OWNER=[SYSTEM] /PROCESSOR=TCPIP$TELNETSYM
/PROTECTION=(S:M,O:D,G:R,W:SM) /SCHEDULE=(NOSIZE)

$ sh que/full AMS$PRINT80
Printer queue AMS$PRINT80, idle, on RUVIN::"x.x.x.x:9100", mounted form WIDE
/BASE_PRIORITY=4 /DEFAULT=(FORM=WIDE) Lowercase /OWNER=[SYSTEM] /PROCESSOR=TCPIP$TELNETSYM /PROTECTION=(S:M,O:D,G:R,W:SM)
/SCHEDULE=(NOSIZE)

These are printer ques on 2 different servers. In first case the printouts are half page. In 2nd case, the last character of each line is missing in prints.

Could anyone tell what is the issue?

P.S. In 1st case,

$ set que/DEFAULT=(nofeed,FORM=wide)/form_mounted=wide sys$printer
%JBC-E-NOSUCHFORM, no such form

FORMS are used to format the output.

$ SHOW QUEUE/FORM/FULL

To define a form

$ DEFINE/FORM 'name' 'number'
