Paper Error on HP C3180

I am trying to print invitations on 5x7 paper. I have a MacBook.

Message I get is this: Paper Size Error: The paper size selected in the printer driver software does not match the paper size in the printer IN tray.

I went to System Preferences>Printer and changed the default to B5 (closest the menu has to 5x7) but I get the same error message. I REALLY need to get these out today, help!

SOURCE: print 5x7 invitations on my 950?

Change the size of the document on word to a standard sized document - such as 8-1/2 x 11. Then when you go to print the documents, set the printing preferences to print on 5x7 paper. That should do the trick.

SOURCE: printing 5x7 invitation

use the mpf tray. go to the machine press menu down arrow untll you get to tray settings. right arrow over till u get to paper type...then down arrow till you see paper size...right arrow again till u see tray 1...down arrow till you see mpf..right arrow till you see letter. Now that you are in the mfp section you can down arrow and you will see serveral selections I would keep it at letter. when you select it an * will appear next to letter. Then select menu and you and the printer is set. Now go to the print option in the program that you are using and when the dialog box to print opens select properties. go to paper quality the mpf should be selected in the tray souce. Now go down and you will see the advance button, click on that you will see Paper/Output make sure it says Paper Size and Letter is selected. Media Type should say Plain 1. If the invitations is on a heavier paper like card stock click the down arrow and select Covers 1 . If your paper is coated like matte finish photo paper select Coated 1. Now click ok. Do a test print and see if you get what you want. If not, let me know.--Deeva

Hello oyam26,
For any paper mismatch issue, first thing you do is try to set the paper type to plain. This will fix the issue in most of the cases.

gud luck

Hi kingwa55,

I have an hp photosmart c4480 and was having the same problem printing wedding invitations. Same size 5.5"x8.5'. Im not sure if this will work on your printer, but this is what I had to do.

Click on Print, then Properties, then features.
About half way down there is a drop down box under sizing options.
Click on custom
Create a name, and put your width and height in.
Click Save and then OK
Completely X out of the print options.
Then Click
File, print, properties,features, click the drop down box under sizing options.
Click more and scroll to the bottom and it should be there.

If your options are different then mine, I'm sorry for wasting your time.

I have an HP Photosmart A646 printer that I bought in the hopes of printing to 5x7 card stock. We have pre-printed card stock that we use for gift certificates and we need to be able to feed the card stock...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-

1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate.
2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.)
3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'.
4) Enter 5x7 for height and width.
5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.)
6) Select, Print.
7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'.
8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'.
9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.

Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.

Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print it.

When I try to print invitations on my HP 4680 they do not print the right size I set margins to 5.5 x 8.5 but it prints on 8.5x11.


Hi,

When your print or during the print preview, press the "setup" button.
Change the paper size to the desired size
like for example 8.5x11, 8.5x13, A4 size and envelope size.
Select also the landscape mode not the portrait mode.

Printing 5x7 card stock in HP 1510 injet all-in-one printer


You need to set up your printer preferences to accommodate the type and size of paper you wish to use, usually listed under printer/print or page set up.

Invariably, paper is loaded, butted to either left or right of the paper feed, but on the other side of the feed there should be a sliding stop which keeps your paper in place.

If feeding from the top feed, print side towards you, if printing from a tray at the bottom of the printer, print face down.

You can download a user manual from here once you've chosen your model printer:-

Faded printing on 5x7 size paper


Sure. One of the papers is probably clay based (Shiny) and one is rag based (rough and dull). Clay based produces the most vibrant inkjet images and rag based produces the best laser printer images. I bet the two papers are different in composition. I see this all the time.

How can I print envelopes on my HP C5180. I've had it over 2 years and have never been able to get it to print any size envelopes. I always get a 'paper mismatch' message. HP tech support has never...


I tried all of the suggestions on here and nothing worked. My envelopes are 5x7.3. So, I finally just put in 5x7 and lo and behold, even though there truly was a paper mismatch this time since that was NOT the size of the envelopes, they printed. I did have to move the text boxes some to make them print correctly. So, I guess the solution for my printer is to actually mismatch the size of the paper/envelope so that you will NOT get the "paper mismatch" error message. Will it work on other size envelopes? I have no clue. This is the first time I've ever been able to print an envelope at all with this printer that I've had 2 or 3 years.

Paper size mismatch - c5280 hp all-in-one printer


I got around this problem by tricking the printer. The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job. What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job. Here is the tricky part... one the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11 I hope this helps.

Paper size


Okay, go to your printer folder Start/Printers Right click on your printer (Officejet 6310) and click on Properties. You will see a button near the bottom called Printing Preferences. Here is where you choose your paper. You can make your choice here and choose to make it your default settings (click Apply to make the new paper your default to print your invitations...you will have to change back after). You may change the quality of print and paper type as well since the default setting won't provide the quality of print you desire. From here it's pretty straight forward. Feed your invitations into the paper tray as you would normal paper and try a test print for quality control. Once you've got the desired output, print the rest of your invitations.
