  2. Try the print job again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.
    Use the HP product software, also known as the printer driver, to change the print settings for your paper size and type depending on your version of Microsoft Word.

    2. Make sure that your HP product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then clickProperties .
    3. Click the Features tab, or the Paper/Quality tab.

      Paper mismatch errors occur because the printer scans the width of the paper before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the printer, the printer reports a 'Paper Mismatch' or 'Paper too Narrow ' error.The error message might also display when you load the correct paper, just reinstall the printer driver if above procedure does not helps.

I am too stupid to print an envelope


No, your not. The M24 has to be the hardest machine on earth to print an envelope on, It is the biggest headache I have ever seen in printing. Here are the instructions and good luck.

NOTE: The PCL driver is the only driver supported for printing envelopes. There is no support for printing to envelopes using the Adobe PostScript® printer driver. It is necessary to complete all steps to successfully print envelopes.

NOTE: If printing through a server, changes to the driver must be made at the server level.

To set up the custom size paper for the printer:

NOTE: The setup of the custom size paper is a one-time step. Once the custom size is setup it remains an available paper size until it is changed.
  1. At the workstation, click on [Start], point to [Settings], then select [Printers].
  2. Right-click on your printer and select [Properties] from the menu. The Printer Properties window will be displayed.

    NOTE: Use the custom size paper in the printer driver when printing within an application.

  3. Select the [Configuration] tab.
  4. Select [Bypass Feed Orientation] and make sure it is set to Portrait in order to feed the envelopes long edge feed (LEF).
  5. Select [Custom Paper Size].
  6. Select one of the five custom sizes.

    NOTE: There are five custom sizes that can be set up for use in the printer driver properties. Custom Paper Size can be given an individual name by selecting [Name]and typing the name for the custom size, such as, envelope. The name will then appear as an option in output size.

    Three types of envelopes are supported:
Type for Envelope Metric Size Imperial Size Monarch 98.4 mm x 191 mm 3.9 x 7.5 Inch Commercial #10 105 mm x 241 mm 4 x 9.5 Inch DL 110 mm x 220 mm 4 x 8.6 Inch
  1. Enter the short edge and long edge values for the envelope size you are using. The driver will now show the new custom size as one of the choices in Output Size.
  2. Click [OK].
To set your printing preferences for the printer:
  1. At the workstation, click on [Start], point to [Settings], then select [Printers].
  2. Right-click on the printer you want to print envelopes and select [Properties] from the menu that will be displayed.
  3. Select [Printing Preferences].
  4. Select [Tray 5] (Bypass) for the Paper Source.
  5. Select [Heavyweight 2 (170-220 g/m²)] for the Paper Type.
  6. Select the custom size you created for envelopes for the Output Size.
  7. Click [OK] twice to exit the Printing Preferences and the Properties windows.
To print envelopes at the workstation using Microsoft Word®:
  1. Open your Word application.
  2. Select [File] on the top left of the toolbar.
  3. Select [Print] from the menu. The Printer window will be displayed.
  4. Select the printer that you will use to print the envelopes. This printer will use the same driver where you defined the custom paper size.
  5. Select [Close].

    NOTE:If you do not select the correct driver you will not be able to select the correct paper size in Page Setup.
To print envelopes at the workstation using Microsoft Word Page Setup:
  1. Open your Word application.
  2. Select [File] on the top left of the toolbar.
  3. Select [Page Setup] from the menu. The Page Setup window will be displayed.
  4. Select the [Paper Size] tab.
  5. Use the paper size pull-down to select the paper size you defined in the driver. The paper size will be listed by the name you gave it in the driver setup. The default will be custom 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
  6. Make sure the orientation is set to Landscape and select [OK]. At this point edit the page with the information you want printed on the envelope.
  7. Select [File] from the toolbar.
  8. Select [Print].
To load envelopes at the printer:

Load the envelopes into Paper Tray 5 (Bypass Tray). The orientation needs to be long edge feed (LEF) with the flap closed and the flap side at the lead edge, and the print side facing down. The printer is now set to print on the envelope.

NOTE: Load a maximum of 10 envelopes into Tray 5 (Bypass Tray) at a time. You may be able to fit a few more depending on the envelope's thickness but do not exceed the max fill line on the tray. The envelope may wrinkle depending on its weight and stiffness. The machine is not designed to handle high-capacity production envelope printing.

Re: How to make a enlarged document


In some printers there is a enlarge document printing support. Like Konica Minolta heavy duty printers or copiers. They support custom paper size in printer properties and also can support a large paper form a paper roll.
You are using inkjet printer so I feel there in no limit of paper size so you can print a custom size paper what you want.
Before printing just go to the properties of the printer and add a new custom size in paper menu then put that size paper into printer hope it’ll work. You must change the paper size from the application from where you are printing that paper.

Printing on 4x8 cards


There are two different ways to create a custom page size within the Epson printer driver on Windows 2000 or XP. The method you need to use will vary depending on what type of driver is installed.
CREATING A CUSTOM PAPER SIZE IN SERVER PROPERTIES
This method will create a new page size accessible by all printer drivers installed in Windows.
1. Open the PRINTERS (2000) or PRINTERS and FAXES (XP) window.
2. Click on FILE, then select SERVER PROPERTIES.
3. On the FORMS tab, place a check beside CREATE A NEW FORM.
4. Input a new name for the paper size. Enter the desired height and width, following the existing format (#.##in).
5. Click SAVE or SAVE FORM to add the new form size to the list, then close SERVER PROPERTIES.
6. Right click on the printer name and left click PRINTING PREFERENCES.
7. Look for PAPER SIZE. (Depending on the driver in use, this will be found on the MAIN tab, the PAPER tab, or under the ADVANCED button). Select your custom paper size from the list.
8. Click APPLY to save this setting, or OK in Windows XP.
NOTE: If your new custom size is not available on the list of preset paper sizes, it indicates that the new size is either too large or too small for the driver in use.
CREATING A CUSTOM PAPER SIZE WITHIN THE EPSON DRIVER
This method will create a custom size within the Epson printer driver only.
1. Open the PRINTERS (2000) or PRINTERS AND FAXES (XP) window.
2. Right click your Epson printer name and left click PRINTING PREFERENCES.
