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.

Hi my Tally printer giving an error Pw Sensor defekt plz advice me


You are seeing the "PW Sensor Defect Error" because the printer is detecting a fault with the Paper Width Sensor.
The Paper Width Sensor is located on the print head carriage and detects the paper edge to prevent printing on the platen.

You can check the follwoing;

  • Ensure the print head cable is not damaged and makes good contact with the printer and print head carriage
  • Ensure the Paper Width Sensor is connected correctly to the print head carriage assembly
  • It may be necessary to replace the Paper Width Sensor

My printer Lipi 2280+ printing properly with 15*12 and fanfold 8.5*12 paper,but when i am using paper width slighly smaller than it less than 8.5 width printer gives paper with error>kindly suggest


You see the "Paper Width Error" on the 2280+ because the print job being recived by the pritner is wider than the physical paper which will cause the pritner to print on the platten, in order to rectify the problem.

  1. Ensure the print job on the system is less than 8.5 inches wider
  2. Perhaps move the paper in the tractors to the right
  3. Disabling the Paper Width Sensor will clear the error but may cause the printer to print on the Platten which may reduce print head life, the Paper Width Sensor can be disabled in the following way;
    Start with the printer Powered OFF
    Hold Down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON keep ONLINE held down until you see ASCII80 ASCII136 on the top line of the display
    Press the button under NEXT repeatedly until you see APW on the top line of the display
    Press the button under APW
    Set APW = OFF

    This will disable the APW sensor and you will not see the Paper Width Error

When printing I am getting a paper width error


The print job you are printing is wider than the paper, or the pritner is detecting the edge of the paper incorrectly.
You can disable the Paper Width Sensor, but it means that any data which is printed outside the paper area will be lost. You may also print on the platten which may reduce print head life.
I would recomend checking the width of the print job or paper size set on the system.

The paper width sensor can be turned off in the following way

Start with the printer power OFF
Hold down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON

Keep the ONLINE button held down until the display reads TEST MODE then release the ONLINE button
When the display reads ASCII80 ASCII136 press the button under BACK (button 1)
The display should read APW, if it does not keep pressing button 1 until it does
Press the button directly under APW (button 2)
Press button 2 (under the <) to change the setting to read APW=OFF
Press the button under SET (button1)
Press the ONLINE button to exit this test menu, then power the printer OFF and back on again

Once the APW has been set to OFF it is then worth testing the printer to see if this resolves the error.

Keep getting 5100 error


Hi
Solution 1:
Look inside for a tiny object like a piece of paper, a staple...

Solution 2:
There is a thin plastic strip running across the width in front of and below the drive belt: there are fine black vertical lines on this strip. If the strip gets a piece of crud on it, you get an error during the start-up sequence.
Gently clean this strip with a damp lint-free tissue.

On my 2265+ I will be printing and I recieve "paper width error" press online to continue


The "paper width error" indicates you are printing out side the area of the paper. ie the document you are trying to print is wider than the physical width of the paper you have in the printer.
The printer displays this error to give you the opportunity to remedy the problem as printing outside the area of the page may be undesirable;

  • Data printed outside the area of the paper will be lost, you will not see this information you printed on the paper.
  • You may shorten the life of the print head by printing on the platen with no paper to protect the print head.
I would recommend the following;
  1. Check the size of paper selected on the computer system, or ensure the data print width is the same or smaller than the actual paper size used in the printer.
  2. If it is not possible to change document size on the system or if the printed outside the paper width are not required or are simply spaces (ie no print) you may wish to turn of the paper width sensor so the edge of the paper is not detected and the error is no seen, the paper width sensor can be disabled in the following way.
  • Power printer OFF
  • Hold down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON, keep the ONLINE button held down whilst the printer powers on and initializes.
  • Release the ONLINE button when you see ASCII80 and ASCII 136 along the top line of the display.
  • Press BUTTON 4 (under NEXT) repeatedly until you see the APW option along the top line of the display.
  • Press the button directly under APW
  • Press BUTTON 2 or 3 to toggle the APW setting to OFF
  • Press the button under SET (button 1)
  • THen power the printer OFF and after a few seconds back on again.
The above actions will disable the Paper Width Sensor and you will no longer see the Paper Width Error, be aware you may be losing data and or shortening the life of the print head.

You get this error code due to defective or failing paper width sensor . The sensor located just to the left of the Print head Assembly, is the Paper Width Sensor.
Even after replacing the sensor if you receive same error . You need to replace the print head as a whole .

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Setting correct paper size


By trial and error I found that the paper is specified with the width then the lenght of the paper.

Even though the graphics show you that you are printing the image either vertical or horizontal I still wanted to know when I set up my non standard paper size of 24x 6 which was first the width of the paper or the length. I didn't see that in the manual. All our problems should be so small.

Thanx for the reply though

Can't print custom envelope on HP Photosmart 7280


OK, to make this clearer, I had the same problem on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.

My Fix, combining several others:

1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.

Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list

Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.

If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.

When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!
