Question about HP Photosmart C5280 InkJet Printer
We are trying to print a document that paper is 5.5 x 8.5. We have changed the print setup at directed but it will not print. The printer says it has the wrong size paper. HELP!!!
Look in driver and see if the paper size is set to a different size. It could be that the driver says you want Letter size prints but you have A4 in the tray. The problem is most likely a driver setting that is set differently to what you need. Another option is to check that the paper feed guide is pushed up properly. If it is set too wide the machine may think it has a different sized paper in it.

SOURCE: printing from wrong tray
Go to printers and faxes and right click and properties on your printer!! Then select Advance, then Printing defaults!! In there select paper size A4 format. And in Word go to File, Page setup and select page size A4!

I have a 3100 series HP. On it you select "Properties", then the "Features" tab. On that tab, there is a "Resizing Options" menu item. It has a drop down menu with "Letter", "More...", and "Custom" choices. There you can define the size.

Here are the instructions for duplex printing.
The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.
The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
5. Click OK.
If a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.
If Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
Duplex Printing is unavailable when:
- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.
- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.
When Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.
