You have to select the photo tray to print to it - the printer will always default to the main tray.

If you have windows;

Printer says the size/type of paper loaded is different from the printer setting


Which printer is that, please? What paper is it set for and what paper is loaded?

Since the last time it printed happily, has anyone touched any paper trays, particularly to top up the paper?

Red LED keeps flashing


Hi

I've been stuck with a flashing red paper light for a while. The printer could print from the manual tray and could also print test or diagnostic pages.
So I thought it might be driver related, and indeed it was.
There's a nasty setting in the printer properties that makes the printer go woo-hoo. So go to printer properties > tray settings. Check the "paper size" of "Tray 1". If it's set to "undefined", change it to your corresponding paper format. Click Update, Apply. Now print happily.
I still wonder why that setting magically changed. Hope this helps someone.

The paper is stop in the printer


open the printer remove the toner and slowly pull the paper out. Pull in the natural printing direction of the printer, so if the printer pulls the paper from top-tray to bottom-tray when printing you should pull the paper from the bottom tray outwards

I think that if you use the bottom tray to load the paper, you can use the different sizes of paper to print. Make sure to click the second button inside the lid that shows the direction the paper is fed into the printer. hope this helps!

I cant print 6x4 pictures


make sure you have photo paper in the small tray and the tray is pushed in the whole way. The green light will come on. Load the paper with the shiny side down.

Print Problem


it's better to configure the paper size through the printer but the best way to do it from the software on the pc. when you go to print it, select file, print as you do, then go to paper size and select manually from the paper options and then click ok and print it.

Printing onto photo paper from mac g4 computer


I put the 4x6 in the bottom cassette. I place it with the shiny side down. Landscape is when the 6" length is front to back in the tray.

I use the cassette exclusively for 4x6 and use the back tray for all else. It works great.
