How 2print 8 x 8 inch paper, HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-1 printer

I have some paper for a scrapbook that is 8" x 8". I'm trying to print on that size of paper, but my printer keeps saying it can't print and to install paper in the paper tray.

Do I need to set my printer up to have that size of paper? How do I do that? I've changed the size of paper in the Word document I'm trying to print from; it does recognize my document as 8x8", but the printer does not.

Do I adjust through the printer control panel on my computer, or must I do that through the printer itself?

Thanks

Document size and page size when printing


Its not a setting for page size, that must always be set to the paper size. The best way is to remove the margins in the document by editing it in a PDF editor. Alternatives are a bit of a bodge. When you print try changing the size to 115% of original.

It is for sure a matter of settings ..so you have to select the paper type ..and the dimensions ..and also the position ...landscape or portrait ...and after that go for the print..Also select the paper type and size in the printer if it has the feature for it ...It is safer to select there too ..cause from computer you have to make it each time and you may miss something ..
If it is still making problems ..just reinstall the printer 's driver and software from scratch ./..(remove the old one ..and reinstall a clean version of the software ) This way you will be sure it is not an software error..

When I want to make a copy it tells me "Paper size


Hi,

Good day, Regarding the error message that your getting, that means the paper where you want to print that document is not supported by the printer. Usually you'll the see supported paper size if you click the print option or print setup for your printer. The only way to resolve this is to use the appropriate size of paper like.

You can also try this steps to change size for the documents you want to print

>Open the File menu and click Print.
>Click the Settings tab
>Click on Paper Size. A list of paper sizes will appear
>Select the size you want.
>If none of the selections are suitable, select Custom. A box will appear inviting you to set your
own measurements. Enter the width and length that you want.
>Click OK.


These are the usual paper size use. It's 8 1/2 by 11 inches and the other one that you could use in most printers is 8 1/2 by 14. The first one is known as Letter size, the other one is known as Legal size. Hope this information help in resolving your issue. Have a great day.

Make sure the paper tray sensor flag has not been dislodged. Look up inside the tray area and also if the back door area opens up, check in there. The flag should move freely>

I'm trying to print some photos on 4 x 6 paper. i selected notecard paper size, but the printer keeps printing the 4 x 6 photo on 8 1/2 x 11 paper.


Are you telling the printer to use the smaller paper?
If it has 2 sizes it will keep using the last size used unless you tell it to change.

Checks mismatch


You may need to change the settings on your printer to accept the checks through the paper input. Otherwise try the printer setting on your QB to have it print from the tray. Make sure it is set to print on 8 1/2 X 11 sized paper and not 3 X 8 or some strange size.
Let me know if this helps.
