Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I can't seem to print borderless photo prints

Hi,
I have a HP Photosmart c5180 all-in-printer. For some reason it does not print photos borderless anymore. It does not even feed the paper. The printer icon shows up in the bottom right of the task bar but after 30 seconds or so it disapears as if it printed something. If I select the option to print with the white borders it works fine. I am printing on the 4 x 6 photo paper. Regular 8.5 x 11 paper works fine also. I tried to chat with a HP tech but I ran out of time so I gave up. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you Mark

    Ok,

    After going back and forth with Hp which by the way were very helpful I still did not get a fix. I decided to go to "Control Panel" Clicked on "Printers and Faxes". Right clicked on my printer icon and deleted it. Then I clicked on "Add a printer" I added the C5180 again and now it works great. Don't know why and I don't care. Just so it works again. That's the nature of computers sometimes. Thanks

I can't get my hp photosmart printer to print photos from my hard drive onto the photo paper. It will print the photos from the paper tray.


You have to shift the paper tray. Click on start, click on printer/faxes right click click on your printer, click on printer preferences, select photo printing borderless. This shifts your paper tray to photo paper.

HP Photosmart D7360-Won't print from photo tray


You have to push in the photo tray~. Push until you hear it click...then it will print from the print tray and in turn, you will be able to print photos unto your glossy photo paper instead of the letter size paper.
