Won't be the printer so I guess that leaves software or printer driver settings or the actual document setup.

SOURCE: Problem printing business cards

I had this problem today and think I've figured it out. Take a sheet of plain paper and two little pieces ot clear 'scotch' tape. Tape the blank sheet behind the business cards at the top/feeder edge and try again. You may need to tweak it a bit more but it stops it from printing so far up.

Try when the message comes up click on print anyway. I have to do this with my printer sometimes and when I click print anyway and do not try to correct it prints fine.

HP C7280 wont print custom size card stock 7.25 x10.25 wont feed or paper jam, however will print when fed on the left side but no guide to keep paper straight. how to correct this issue, Ive cleaned


Your question does not provide all the information necessary to absolutely resolve the issue. By now I suspect you've already resolved the issue or given up. Perhaps someone can use this info.

Need to know: Operating System (Windows 95/98/Vista/XP/7/8), Application (Word, Paint, Firefox, etc), type of job (jpg, pdf, text, etc.)

There is no short answer possible; but, I may be able to help with a generic answer. I can't help on Apple but I suspect it's the same as Windows, (and Unix, Linux, OS2, etc.).

Provided the Printer works proper on normal 8 ½ x 11 stock (print media) then it is not a printer or Queue issue unless it is just confused. As a printer technician I have seen this resolved by rebooting the machine(s) and trying to print again. If that doesn't resolve the issue you need to know:

The application you send the print job from tells the Queue what stock (letter, legal, card, envelope etc) to expect. The Queue, a component of all versions of Windows, is created when the printer is initially installed on the computer. The Queue holds print jobs and then sends them on to the printer when the printer tells the Queue it is ready. Some applications are more robust allowing more options than others. However, printing from inside a browser is frequently sketchy. If you're printing from an application that is different from the one that created it you may face an issue of the printer not getting the correct stock information.

Very Important: First before you attempt to send the print job check the settings in the app to insure your job has the right paper stock selected. Then, as you prepare to send the job from the app to the Queue before you hit the final "Print" button, check the "Paper Source/Size/Media" boxes in the "Printer Properties" to make sure your sending the right stock information. If that doesn't fix it; try to save your project in a format readable by another application and try to print it from the other app.

Note: 1. Print jobs are served to the printer by the Queue one at a time on a FIFO (First In First Out) basis. Sometimes print jobs get hung up in the Queue. A hung print job will block all subsequent jobs until the hung job is cleared. When a print job is sent and nothing happens (no printer activity or error messages on the screen.) look in the System Tray for a printer icon. Open it up and see if there are any jobs hung. If so cancel them and start afresh. This may require a reboot.
2. Print Queues can (rarely) become corrupt and must be deleted and rebuilt.

There are still variables too numerous to mention.

I have an HP Photosmart A646 printer that I bought in the hopes of printing to 5x7 card stock. We have pre-printed card stock that we use for gift certificates and we need to be able to feed the card stock...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-

1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate.
2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.)
3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'.
4) Enter 5x7 for height and width.
5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.)
6) Select, Print.
7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'.
8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'.
9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.

Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.

Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print it.

When I try to line tells me that the paper size mismatch and only takes a copy of the text


Have/had the same problem: Getting "paper size mismatch" on the C4280 status screen, after we got a paper jam. Every time we hit OK and put in paper, Message about "Now printing Alignment page", it feeds through quickly, with nothing printed on the page and reverts back to Paper size mismatch. Finally got rid of the error, not sure how, but now when I try to copy anything, we only get the lower right postion of the document that I'm trying to copy. Printing from the PC seems ok.
Powered off and back on, and it is back to P"now printing alignment page, quick feed through and "paper size mismatch" error. AND
When copying directly from the glass panel,it will only print a quarter of the page -however it prints and coorectly if we print directly from the computer.
The problem is the paper size sensors. Remove the plastic access panel that is for access to the rollers in the back and has 4 rollers on it. There are two papaer sensors attached to the printer circuit board (PCB). The control arm for the sensor is a small plastic piece that extends slightly into the paper path above the PCB. The plastic can be broken when you are removing a paper jam. I stuck a small piece of a match stick in the sensor to keep it open (as though a wider piece of paper was passing throught the printer). I can't switch to smaller card stock, etc, but who cares, it works.
The copying problem is caused because the C4280 will not scan correctly until after it does the alignment phase.

In printing properties and printing preferences be sure and tell the printer you're printing labels, it allows more time for the card stock to reach the starting point.

Print wedding announcements and the print is not straight


Card stock on an HP can be a nuisance, due to the paper feed path. The stock has to curl around the platen.
Some things to check: Make sure you are telling the print driver you are using card stock. It should be in the printing preferences as paper type. The printer will respond differently, knowing it has the heavier paper. Also make sure that your paper guides are adjusted to fit the smaller stock. Just putting in 5.5 x 8.5 paper into an 8.5 x 11 tray may cause it to skew.
I am assuming that you are already telling it to print high quality, as it is for a wedding announcement, but make sure that you are. Slowing down the paper feed speed by putting it into high quality mode can help.
Your printer is an older model, so it could be that the rollers are wearing down, and it just can't feed the last bit as well. You could try to print it in "landscape" mode. Turn the paper 90 degrees in the paper tray, so that the 8.5" is the feed side. This will allow the printer to have a better grip on the paper as it goes through. A word of caution with this method, though. HP's have a 1/2 inch margin at the bottom of the paper where it can't print. Turning the paper 90 degrees will force you to have a side margin of 1/2 inch. Currently, your bottom margin has to be 1/2 inch. I don't know what your layout looks like, so I don't know if you can turn the paper.
If you are the one getting married, the congratulations, good luck, and mazel tov! (Have to cover all the basis).

HP C4280 incorrect paper feed


Check your printer's capability.

Buy the card stock they recommend.

If all else fails, print on plain and take card stock to a copy shop and have them do it for you.

Walking there beats going nuts over stupid software or hardware problems

Only prints business cards correctly on plain paper, but not on the card stock.


I am the guy with the hp d'jet D2445. I ran out of card stock in failed attempts. Not wanting to give up I bought more (Avery, no serrations) and it worked fine. Don't ask why.
