HP Photosmart 7550 - Full Page Photo Printing Jams at end
If I try printing an 8x10 photo image - the printer will "jam" (I use quotes because the printer does not appear to think it's jammed - rather it thinks it is done). It always happens when the job is about 90% complete. The print just stops - the ink cartridge returns to its cradle but the paper doesn't get spit out - it gets held on to. Printing full color papers from the web has no problem

I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud

Fuji paper is the arch enemy of the hp printer due to it's high gloss and the slickness of the paper - try another brand of paper. It sounds like a money grab but hp paper has a special marking on each page that is read by the printer and it often errors much less.
