There is a workaround for 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... once 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.

My HP C7180 says mismatch when trying to print DL envelopes. It has worked in the past.


CHECK THE PRINT SETTINGS FOR THE DOCUMENT YOU ARE SENDING TO THE PRINTER YOU MAYBE TRYING TO SEND IT AS A LETTER SIZE INSTEAD OF DL SIZE. YOU CAN FIND THIS IN THE PRINTER PROPERTIES WHEN PRINTING THE DOCUMENT CHECK PAPER SIZE.

Paper size mismatch for A9 envelope (5.75x8.75)


Set the envelope size in the printer properties paper size list to A5 (5.83 x 8.27) which is only .08 inches wider than the short side of an A9 envelope (5.75 inches). The paper size sensor on the HP6520 printer must not be sensitive enough to tell the difference. I can print A9 envelopes just fine using the A5 setting.

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 jam when trying to print envelopes.


You need to make sure that your print sriver setting match the setting on the printer itself.

If setting are changed on the printer itself to envelopes then when you go to print click preferences button on print screen and look for a place to change paper type (usually defaulted to letter size.) Change paper type to envelpoes and click ok. Click ok again on print screen and it should print correctly.

Paper types must be configured the same on the device as well as the print driver installed on the computer.

Hope this helps

Need to print a half-fold card envelope with HP Photosmart C4480


I'm printing wedding invitation envelopes (or A6) and had to set both my C4480 and psc1315 to a regular size 8.5x11 letter size but changed my margins to reflect the smaller size for my envelope with the left side of the screen being the more narrow margin. After adjusting the top margin accordingly, I fed the envelopes, flap side down and straight into the printer and voila...envelope addresses are printed. Good luck. Blu
