Photosmart 8750 prints the photographs on cards, beautifully. When you print the message on the inside, it produces half a dozen straight scored lines on the glossy side. HP says this is caused by XP SP3 & to remove it & go back to SP2 but my son has the same printer & SP3, which doesn't cause the scratches. What to do?

Re: scratching on glossy photo paper
Unfortunately, you may have to revert back to SP2. the thing with sp3 is that it can act and work completely different from computer to computer depending on what software you have installed on it and what build of XP you have (ie home/pro) The only other alternative is to uninstall software, reboot and see if the problem persists. this way you may be able to find the program interfering with the performance of your printer.

Have you loaded them face down? I have a 7360 and they are pretty fussy about what they will take and what they won't and how. The paper must be put in the upper drawer (if it is 6x4 paper), with the glossy side down and the drawer must be pushed right in.
Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.
It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.
For this paper
Select this paper type setting
Plain paper, sheets
Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper
Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper
Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper
Epson Ultra Glossy
Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper
Epson Premium Glossy
Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper
Epson Premium Semigloss
Epson Glossy Photo Paper
Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight
Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper
Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards
Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet
Epson Photo Stickers
Epson Photo Stickers
Envelope Hope this is of help.
keep checking the HP site for an updated Driver for your printer, but why not use an online photo printing service like Walgreens or Walmart, You can't possibly print photos at home cheaper than they can, and this way you get actual photographs back.
This machine will only print certain sizes as borderless. A5 is not one of them.
You can use the following media with this feature:
Matte Paper - Heavyweight: A4, Letter
Premium Glossy Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 5 x 7", 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6", 8 x 10"
Premium Semigloss Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6"
Glossy Photo Paper:Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6"
As you can see A5 is not in the list, therefor you will not be able to print A5 borderless via the normal means.
