SOURCE: Word Settings for Printing Postcards

I found the fix!! Once you have your size settings typed into your page layout screen and applied to the document, click print. Once you select your printer, click on properties (or printer preferences) click on the features tab (the tab next to printing shortcuts) and go to the resizing options section. click on paper size bar and scroll down to custom. once in the screen, give the shortcut a name you'll recognize, type in your dimensions in the provided spaces click save. once you go back to the features screen, scroll back down to custom and select your shortcut that you just created and apply it to both the paper type and paper size. click ok and go back and click ok to print! Hope this makes sense..if not, go to HP's website and type in your product name, type paper mismatch in the keyword search bar and click ont the first link in the found section. It will give you the same step by step instructions....

SOURCE: Can't Print Invitations

There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Photosmart C309a series Printer (brand new) will not print

check the Tray. there are markings on the tray that tell the printer what paper is loaded, if the tray isn't in the percise location of type of paper, you'll get that error message. If that isn't it, then check the sides of the tray and see if there is any damage. sometimes the tabs on the trays that tell the printer what paper is in it, get broken. If that isn't it, then look inside the printer where the Tray goes in, and look for damage, or bent metal feelers that rub against the tray,

That's a great printer but HP support can make your hair fall out.
Sounds like a misaligned sensor. Look for a micro switch probabably on the tom inside left. Tape that shut with duct tape and maybe a bit of cardboard. You can try to reposition it too, but there is little adjustment tolerance. If that doesn't take, it may require replacement. Working pulls for the hp's are inexpensive on eBay. You can also try to junction the leads together temporarily.

I am using quickbooks 2005 and am trying to print full page checks. I am getting a 'paper mismatch' error and cannot print my checks.


Welcome to FixYa.

Paper mismatch errors occur because the product scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the product, the product reports a 'Paper Mismatch' error.

How do you load your check in the printer?

Keep me posted.

How can I print envelopes on my HP C5180. I've had it over 2 years and have never been able to get it to print any size envelopes. I always get a 'paper mismatch' message. HP tech support has never...


I tried all of the suggestions on here and nothing worked. My envelopes are 5x7.3. So, I finally just put in 5x7 and lo and behold, even though there truly was a paper mismatch this time since that was NOT the size of the envelopes, they printed. I did have to move the text boxes some to make them print correctly. So, I guess the solution for my printer is to actually mismatch the size of the paper/envelope so that you will NOT get the "paper mismatch" error message. Will it work on other size envelopes? I have no clue. This is the first time I've ever been able to print an envelope at all with this printer that I've had 2 or 3 years.

Printing to 4 x 6 paper


Hello oyam26,
For any paper mismatch issue, first thing you do is try to set the paper type to plain. This will fix the issue in most of the cases.

gud luck
