Help- my HP 1280 will not printing on thick (~250g/m2) photo paper (glossy), even type HP. With other papers works good.
The printer refused evermore the APLI Photo bright Paper (240g/m2, glossy) and rather the HP Advanced Photo Paper (250g/m2, glossy), both with instant drying quality.
Thanks, Sandor from Romania

Ensure u are placing the paper in the photo tray..
if u r printing from the memory card which is inserted in the printer..ensure that the PHOTO BUTTON on the printer is on..
You can also try to reset the printer by going to the SETTINGS/TOOLS menu (RENCH SYMBOL) and then look for the Factory Restore (Might be under "Preferences")

When I print on photo paper the ink doesn't dry and picture quality is unrecognisable


You have to match your print settings with the correct type of media used !

When you print, set the preferences, set to PHOTO quality and not draft, set paper type to PHOTO PAPER, or GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER whichever - If you select wrong media type your colors might be off. Select the settings that match the closest to your media. If you use paper use "plain paper" setting, if you use glossy photo paper, use "glossy photo paper" as settings and PHOTO quality.

I recommend use you use inkjet PHOTO paper, glossy, you can use HP or EPSON or even the cheap LIKON ones work amazing for me, they should be able to dry quickly, if they don't you are not using the correct settings.

By your description above it looks like you are using economy or draft mode - NOT good for photo paper.

Photo paper jam what thickness of photo paper should i use for a hp photosmart 8250 i keep getting jammed up and think the paper is to thick


Be sure and check the printing properties before printing. make sure that you specify the kind and thickness of the paper. This way the printer expects that thickness when printing. Sometimes, glossy paper makes the printer jam easily. Try putting around 25 regular paper on bottom of special paper and see if that helps.

EPSON 1280 SILVER INK JET PRINTER, Stopped printing on glossy


Problem with paper feeder. Replace paper feeder or replace just pick up rubber at paper feeder mechanics. You can add thickness of rubber by adding black double tape (flexible) (about 1mm).

I am unable to print photos usingthe HP Photo Papers


Does it print on normal paper ?

If it does is then you need to look at the material you are trying to feed, there a limit on what thickness of material your printer will happily accept

Media comes in all different thicknesses and forms (We make the stuff) and some printers will struggle to feed 200gsm photo glossy etc

You could try cleaning the infeed rollers with an alcohol based cleaner to improve their grip.

Even Gin or Vodka will suffice as they both clean and evaporate quickly

Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper


Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

HP 6940 rejects 8.5" X 11" glossy photo paper for printing


Is it a front feed and then the output is also goes out to the front? Coz if your glossy paper is to tough that it will not bend easily, this is what you get. Why not try to use a thin and more flexing photo paper if the outcome will be the same.

Usually when using thick paper the most desirable printer should be a top feed-front output with almost less than 90 degree bend.
