I have an HP 7280 Half the time it prints on plain paper instead of photo paperAlso, when the 4x6 photo paper is in the photo tray, the printer error message says to put paper in the Main Tray, even though I'm trying to print on photo paper. How frustrating! Can you help? Many thanks!
Ensure u are placing the paper in the photo tray..
if u r printing from the memory card which is inserted in the printer..ensure that the PHOTO BUTTON on the printer is on..
You can also try to reset the printer by going to the SETTINGS/TOOLS menu (RENCH SYMBOL) and then look for the Factory Restore (Might be under "Preferences")

You also need to change the paper type in printing preferences.You will find 4x6 and 4x6 with tab in th pull down menu where it says plain paper. Be sure to position the paper as far as it will go into the printer and close the paper controls to hold it there. Also fan it well before you put it in.
I suggest that you go into the printer properties section on control panel. There Will be a section which allows you to tell the printer the type of paper, size desired, orientation of photo to horizon and etc. There is also likely a selectable setup procedure on the printer's own display to do the same... It sounds like a basic setup format issue....
Set the default printer driver settings to print 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch) photos
Make sure 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch) photo paper is loaded into the photo tray.
The Photo Tray light on the printer does not have to be lit when printing from a computer.
Click Start and then click Control Panel .
Click Printers and Faxes .
Right-click the icon for the HP Photosmart 8200 Series and select Printing Preferences .
On the Paper/Quality tab, select 4x6 or 4x6 with tab from the Size is drop-down menu (under Paper Options).
Make sure that the Source is box is set to Photo tray .
Click the Borderless Printing box if borderless prints are desired.
Click Apply and then click OK .
Open the software program you wish to use and set up the pictures you want to print. Make sure to select a 4x6 inch layout for the photos within the software program before you print from the software program.

You have to push in the photo tray~. Push until you hear it click...then it will print from the print tray and in turn, you will be able to print photos unto your glossy photo paper instead of the letter size paper.
