Message says envelope is the wrong size

Nine times out of ten, when printing an address on an envelope, I receive a message that the envelope is the wrong size. The envelope is the right size. Usually if I press "resume" the address is then printed properly; sometimes the envelope is sent through without printing, but if I put it in again & click on print, it will go through.

Re: Message says envelope is the wrong size

I would go for a quick fix and uninstall the printer and reinstall it. But first, just try resetting it by turning it off, unplugging all cables and usb cords, replug it and turn back on. If no good, then do the above. Good luck.

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.

Printing envelopes

You may have to go into the printer properties and change the size in the paper size drop down list, Your printer thinks that you are trying to print the envelopes on standard size sheet of paper, if you change that to the 6x9 in the printer properties it should work for you now, If it don't just write back here and we will try something else.

marglet, Turn-off and unplug the printer for a couple of minutes...there may be improper setting stuck in the printer memory. then plug it in and try to print the envelopes..if that doesn't work...Make sure there aren't any custom print settings causing this. Lastly...Try updating the drivers. Download the latest drivers from the site. Good Luck, Tim
