Loading A5 paper into photosmart 8450

How do I load A5 paper into the 8450? I have tried loading it into the lower tray, but in the printer setup I cannot select A5 with lower tray - this is apparently an incompatible request. I have to remove the upper tray to even load the A5 sheet, but cannot work out how to tell the printer to acept an A5 sheet from the lower tray, and there is certainly no way of loading it in the upper tray - so what do I do?

Your printer is capable of accepting a5, load the paper on a different direction, with the leading edge 5.83" feed first, then properly aligned the side guides to match your paper this will surely work this time, then slect a5 on your printing properties on your pc

I can't get the Dell 3110cn laser printer to print A5 size (5.5 x 8) paper even though I loaded it in the tray. The printer asks me to load paper tray. I'm using Word 2003 on a Windows XP machine.


Go to the control panel and open tyour printer folder.

Right-click default printer and select properties.

sleect the paper tab and configure the printer to print on a size A5 paper.

Then click apply.

To align the printer from the control panel

1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press Setup.
The Setup menu appears.
3. Press to highlight Tools, and press OK.
The Tools menu appears.
4. Press to highlight Align Printer, and press OK.
5. The HP All-in-One prints a test page, aligns the print head, and calibrates the printer.

Recycle or discard the page.

A success or failure message appears.

Note If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the printer, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or ink
cartridge.

6. Press OK to continue.
7. Recycle or discard the page.
