Question about HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-In-One InkJet Printer
I'm using Avery 5162 labels but they are misaligned when I print them. Avery tells me I need to reset the paper selection on my printer to Photo Paper Matte or labels. How do I do this?

I have had this same problem trying to print DVD lable sheets.
I spent hours trying to work it out, HP support said it was the software(hmmm)
The answer to the problem is, the printer senses the printed block colour band on the preprinted lable sheet. I am using Fellowes - Neato DVD tempate sheets which have a black, block of colour on the leading edge, I'm not sure about Avery.
I found the quick fix is, turn the sheet around end for end against the manufacturers instructions. The opposite end is plain and goes through OK. You may have to calibrate the software to compensate if the printing starts in a different position this end, my sheets are the same within about 1mm.
You could also cut the block colour off the sheet if the direction was critical, and make allowance for the starting position.
I find the printer is good apart from this problem.
I hope this helps, it worked for me.

SOURCE: printing to 4 x 6 paper
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.
