SOURCE: Printing Business Cards on Cardstock

Yes, the roller system will only open wide enough for semi thick cardstock. If you read through you're manual you'll find the recommended card stock you can use. HP supports HP paper.
Here is a list of supported HP paper.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodTopCategory?product=16118&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&dest_page=product
See the user manual on page 45.
Papers to avoid when printing
It would not hurt to remove the rear door & clean the rollers. (No soap). Dried soap film will cause paper to stick to the rollers. You can go to Wallmart or a local hardware store & buy a bottle of Grease Lighting. This heavy duty cleaner (When dry), does not leave any soap film. Great for cleaning just about anything.
If you wish to download the user manual from HP (It's easer to see & find information faster. Just click on this link:

SOURCE: brother laser printer wont print

If there printer is not able to print on card stock then check the recommend
card stock paper thickness, if the printer works with normal paper but not card stock then there is problem in the card stock and by using this paper may also damage the rollers on the printer and make the printer useless ...

Good luck...

SOURCE: Cardstock printing with OKI C7400

That machine is rated at 80lb cover I think. You have to use the bypass and select ultra heavy setting in the driver for cardstock.

SOURCE: Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?

The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

Cannot scan with Canon MX870. Error code 5,145,61 Windows XP Wired LAN connected printer and laptop reinstalled Print/scan/fax S/W - still no scanning. Printing OK. ???


My solution was to open the MP Navigator application and then click the preferences at the top right. There is a product name dropdown. In my case the incorrect MAC address was chosen (denoted by "Network:XXXXXXXXXXX"). Once I chose the other address it worked perfectly.

I have a canon mx870 and it will not print from the cassette lower tray, even if it is set to it, it always wants to print from the rear, even if it is closed!


It may be that, if it's not the tray allocation settings causing the problem, some printer maintenance will fix this. I had this problem, after I had only had my MX870 a couple of months. Suddenly, it would not print from the cassette even when printing to standard A4 plain paper. Nor would it print from the cassette even when I changed the printer settings from 'automatic' tray selection to print always from the cassette. After seeing something online, I then ran some of the MX870 maintenance applications, first 'Cleaning', then 'Print Head Alignment', and finally 'Roller Cleaning' for the cassette rollers (for which you have to remove all paper from the cassette). The problem has been solved (at least for the moment).

I had the same problem - my printer showed that wireless LAN was enabled & my mac showed the printer but said it was offline. I went to preferences, print & fax, hit the + key to add a printer, added the canon printer again, set that printer as my default, did a print command from Word & that created a queue in the new default printer ... and it printed. Deleted the first Canon printer that was "offline." Oh, and I'm not sure if it made a difference, but before what I just described, I checked for software updates after the printer CD install process & uploaded one update.

I had the same problem and just fixed it by opening the Canon IJ Network Utilities and using the tool menu. It turned out that the printer had changed ports and the port was not compatible. That meant that the port it was using didn't have a printer driver associated with it so it couldn't work. As soon as I went into the configure menu and had it try the next IP port, it immediately printed. It's a matter of finding the correct port again or associate the driver the port you are now using.
