My All In One 6180 doesnt find photo paper tray

I cant get an option to print from my photo paper tray from any of the software on my Mac OSx. I can only print to regular paper unless i put photo paper in the letter tray. I have the same problem with the printer software on my Mac! So annoying...I didn't have this problem with the HP software for this printer on my PC.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.


We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
Phenomenon
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.

Hello Michelle,

You have to go into your print settings of the application in use and select "Paper Type/Quality", then from the drop down menu you will see "Source" as an option, from there select "PHOTO TRAY".

Will not print photo from main tray


The printer will automatically select the "Print Quality" Media based on its driver settings or the device settings.

You will need to access the properties of your printers software to assure that you have selected photo paper for the tray you wish.

Depending on which model of printer your using, you may have to access the Settings/Options/Page Setup/Tray Setup Menu. Consult your Owners Manual for settings these Tray options. Make sure you have set the tray you wish for Photo Paper (or comparable quality option)

Let us know
Good luck

My HP C7200 printer won't print from the photo tray



If you using a mac: After choosing the Photosmart C7200 to print your file on the print preview, change PAPER SIZE to 4x6, then lower down, change from PREVIEW to PAPER TYPE/QUALITY, more options will open underneath, on SOURCE, change from MAIN TRAY to PHOTO TRAY. You should also change the PAPER TYPE to some kind of PHOTO PAPER (whichever one your using, but the standard seems to be HP ADVANCED PHOTO PAPER)

Photos in Mac's iPhoto will not print from the photo paper tray. They always print on paper in the main paper tray (this is on an HP C7280 printer). I had an HP Photosmart 8250 and it was the same with...


This is an older post, but it appeared to be unanswered. In iPhoto once a photo is selected, you hit "Print" at the bottom right. A preview screen with options comes up. Once the correct options there are chosen, you need to hit print again - but it does not print yet. Instead a second "Print" window opens. In the middle of this window there is an "iPhoto" button with arrow buttons on the right. The arrow buttons open a drop down menu. Choose "Paper/Paper Quality" from that menu, and it will give you a button for "Source." The arrow buttons on the right of the "Source" button allow you to choose "Photo Tray."
Once it's changed, you don't need to redo it each time you print an additional photo, since iPhoto reverts to "Last Used Settings." But as a shortcut for future sessions, you can save these settings using the "Preset" button located at the top of the second "Print" window (the window where the "iPhoto" button is located). I used "Photo Tray" in the description so it would be obvious, since I don't print pictures every day.

Mac Leopard OS: Can't print from photo tray


Here's the trick. It took me an hour to figure this puzzle out myself. DO NOT select the Print icon at the bottom of iPhoto. Do NOT select Print from the File menu. DO select EXPORT from the File menu. Select the HP Photosmart Mac tab Select HP Photosmart Print.app from the app selector. Click the Export button. HP Photosmart Print.app will load with a new print dialog box. Make all necessary selections. This is where you can select the Photo Tray as the tray for the printer to take paper from. This solved MY problem! Let us know if this helps you!

Pagr pro 9100 and Mac OSx 10.5.1


I am not clear with the quarry you ask but what I understand that you can print larger the A4.so in all Konica Minolta printers which I have used we must specify the paper size before printing in the printer properties and confirm that the same paper size we have putt in the printer’s tray. if more then one trays and installed in the printer the printer can print all available paper size without specify them. But spouse if you send a legal size print to the printer and there in no legal size paper in the paper tray then it will show a error.
What I think it is paper size issues please check it and make sure the trays are fixed to the size which you putt in.
