Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Hp C4250 all in one does not align photos on photo paper

If I print to the HP C42450 using printer paper the top 1/4 inch of the image is missing. If I use plain paper image comes out fine. If I print four 5x7 prints on two pages and have a page of plain paper and a page of photo paper the plain paper prints correctly the photo paper is missing the top 1/4 inch.

I have updated the drivers and spent several hours online with HP tech support. But have made no progress. Anybody got any suggestions.

SOURCE: how to load 5x7 photo paper into hp photosmart D7460 ??

Simply set the page layout option to select from printer. Place the cut & proper sized paper in the inlet tray, adjust the sliders so that they just rest lightly against the edge of the paper. Remember only one slider moves and the other one remains fixed to one edge. Click print preview. You might get a message saying paper orientation is not right...should I adjust the printer automatically, click yes and behold it will print in Portrait or landscape mode depending on the matter. If it warns that output does not fit on the media(paper) then select fit to page option.....sodeep

- In the print screen window select 'properties' Or 'Preferences'

- In the next window there will be many options to clean, align, nozzle check etc etc...



hope this helps, thanks!

HOW TO GET THE BEST DIGITAL PRINTS...


Printing a photo but not getting it upto your expectation.....?? No worries just fiddle a little bit
with the printing options and keep in mind some important points that I am going to tell you....it will help:

1) RESOLUTION OF THE IMAGE TO BE PRINTED... Always keep in mind while printing a digital
printout that the resolution should be best fitted i.e. of the original photo.... if you stretch A photo too 
much or squeeze you might not get the desired result. It depends upon the DPI i.e
dots per inch that appear on the paper in the snap that you print. To get a quality print you must
make sure to select proper dpi for an image in printing. Eg. for printing a snap of 300 dpi you must choose
the image resolution as 600 dpi, but in case of professionally required image quality you can select upto 24oo dpi.

2) PRINTING PAPER ... Make sure that the paper you are using is suitable for the ink and the printer that
you are using. Certain printers specially design Photo Paper suitable for the ink used in them for eg. HP printers
do have Hp photo papers to give a good quality of image.

3) SETTINGS IN THE PRINTER... You can adjust the image quality that you want by clicking on the
Properties Option in the printer dialog box that opens when you give a print command. for eg. you can select
Economy mode for saving the ink (but this will not give a good quality image as colors to will be low),
or you can use the Bes option, as suitable for you...

So next time you Print a photo or snap of yourself make sure to remember these points and have fun.....

Good Luck!!

Trying to print a 4 x 6 photo with HP Photosmart 130 I'm trying to print a 4 x 6 photo with HP Photosmart 130 printer, from my desktop HP Photo & Imaging software. It prints all but last 1/2...


It is for sure a matter of settings ..so you have to select the paper type ..and the dimensions ..and also the position ...landscape or portrait ...and after that go for the print..Also select the paper type and size in the printer if it has the feature for it ...It is safer to select there too ..cause from computer you have to make it each time and you may miss something ..
If it is still making problems ..just reinstall the printer 's driver and software from scratch ./..(remove the old one ..and reinstall a clean version of the software ) This way you will be sure it is not an software error..

Efforts to print 4x6 borderless print result in only top part of photo paper being used and top third of photo being cut off


First thing to try (and I'm assuming you're attempting to print a photo within HP Image Zone & have already selected the 4x6 photo tray? Hint: can be done via printer, properties, printing shortcuts) is to change the 'more options' directly below where you'd selected the 4x6 image size and then change to 'shrink to fit' vs. the default 'crop to fit'... Additional thoughts includes rotating the image (can be done directly on the preview screen...)

PRINT IS BLURRY


The printed output is fuzzy, blurry, or grainy, or the edges of objects in the images are jagged. Solution Follow these steps until the issue is resolved. Step one: Check your paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
Step two: Check the settings
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Step three: Check image resolution Make sure that the image file has enough resolution for the size of the printed picture. Although many photo applications can enlarge an image or part of an image to any size, eventually the individual pixels become visible and the whole image looks blurry. Here are some general guidelines for image file resolutions:
  • 94 pixels per cm (240 pixels per inch) for images to print on smaller format photo paper, such as 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch)
  • 117 pixels per cm (300 pixels per inch) or higher for larger format photo papers
  • Lower resolutions might produce acceptable images when printed on rough-textured paper
Step four: Align the cartridges If the previous steps have not improved the appearance of the printout, align the cartridges. See the user guide for alignment instructions.

Alignment of photo paper



Borderless printing up to 8.5 x 24-inch using brochure and photo paper.

Are you using this specific paper? If so, it may be that the paper sensor is not detecting the paper edge properly. Does the printer act as if it is printing in the blank area?
