The mx2300n only supports up to 209gsm heavy card. You must make sure that your heavy card is not over this rating.
Set the bypass tray as 'Heavy' by clicking on the trays on the main copy mode screen, select type & size for bypass. Select heavy, and Auto AB as this will allow the tray guides to detect the size of your paper. Load the tray with up to 20 sheets of Heavy paper.
Open your document, select Print, then properties. Under the 'paper' tab, select paper source as bypass tray, and paper type as heavy (if you miss one of these steps, the ,machine will ask to load paper due to size or type mismatch).
That's pretty much it.

What is the difference between a display board and a poster board?


A poster board is just a type of display board. It is "used for displaying posters and other flat printed matter. It comes in large sheets in a variety of colors and is significantly larger than A2. In the US, the standard size for poster board is 22" x 28" x .05". It can be particularly light and flimsy, as it is primarily expected to support sheets of paper, photos, glitter, lettering and other small, light items that are glued onto it." (Wikipedia)

I wish to use my HP Photosmart C8180 to print heavy weight cardstock... is there a setting that I can select to do this?


Step Three: Check the paper type Verify that only recommended paper is being used for printing. The recommended paper types and weights for most HP printers include:
  • Plain paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Legal size paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Card stock, up to a maximum of 110 lb (200 gsm)
  • Envelopes, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Photo paper, 145 lb (236 gsm)
NOTE: Supported paper weights and types vary by product. Check the Specifications sheet for your product for more information.

If you use card stock up to a maximum of 110lb then there should be no special mode to enter to print on this type of paper. Photo paper weighs in at 145 lb maximum which is heavier and can be printed on without selecting any special 'mode.'

Good luck on printing on heavy card stock.

I am replacing an ignition coil on a honda gx340 engine and I am not sure about the clearance needed between coil and flywheel


If you have a normal business card or a matchbook cover, that is just about perfect. Not a heavy cardboard one, but the normal heavy paper. Just put the card by the magnets on the flywheel, let the magnetic force pull the coil up to the business card, tighten the screws, pull out the card, and you are back in business.

How to center greeting card paper in the printer or computer


Centre the paper tray guides. However as the papersize is quite small, the guides may not be close enough to maintain the paper in the centre.
You can either cut the paper a little bigger so as to match the tray guides and then trim the excess paper after printing.

Or you can place two pieces of cardboard or any other material of same thickness on either side of the paper so as to center the paper with the sides of the tray.

Can not get the card to feed the printer


This printer isn't designed to take heavy paper, only office standard, and slightly heavier for smarter documents / photos. Best idea would be to print one on smart bright white paper (or desired colour), and take it to a copy shop where they can print onto card. The problem is that the thin paper will easily roll round the rollers at the back, however the thicker paper can't, and therefore jams with the rollers tickling the end of it.

Good luck, and congrats on wedding :)

Paper not feeding into printer: pulls to the right and jambs


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Heavy weight paper


Hi it would appear that the paper is too heavy for the machine check the manual as it will have the spec on what paper can be used and also how heavy the paper could be.

Sorry I cannot be anymore help but try using a paper that is about 10-20 gsm lighter.

Thanks J
