Flaherty@nbhealth.org I am trying to print on 110 lb cardstock and It keeps geeting stuck. I can't seem to find where I should change the paper type. Please advise.


Use the hand feed tray on the right side. When you put paper in this tray it usually will ask you to set the paper type. 110 lb. card stock is EXTREMELY difficult to copy onto. It might be better to bring this particular job to a copy center. This type of stock will put serious wear on your machines drum. Drums cost big money. Good luck.

We are trying to print on a card stock ,110 lb. , 8.5x11 Paper keeps jamming. Will this printer work with card stock?


It will only work if the printer supports feed through from the back. If the paper has to go in the same side of the printer that it comes out it will jam.

I wish to use my HP Photosmart C8180 to print heavy weight cardstock... is there a setting that I can select to do this?


Step Three: Check the paper type Verify that only recommended paper is being used for printing. The recommended paper types and weights for most HP printers include:
  • Plain paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Legal size paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Card stock, up to a maximum of 110 lb (200 gsm)
  • Envelopes, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Photo paper, 145 lb (236 gsm)
NOTE: Supported paper weights and types vary by product. Check the Specifications sheet for your product for more information.

If you use card stock up to a maximum of 110lb then there should be no special mode to enter to print on this type of paper. Photo paper weighs in at 145 lb maximum which is heavier and can be printed on without selecting any special 'mode.'

Good luck on printing on heavy card stock.

KM C252 - I'm trying to print postcards on 110 lb cardstock, but the ink doesn't stick. It made a huge mess.


You need to set the paper settings to a HIGHER weight/gsm. It is running for thinner stock so the toner is not fusing to the paper properly. you will need to use a thick 3 at least.

WHEN I PUT THE BLANK PAPER AND PRESS PRINT, THE PAPER DOES NOT GO DOWN FULLY AND IT GETS STUCK. I DID TRY SHAKING IT AND PASSING A PIECE OF PAPER THROUGH AND UNDER AND NOTHING YET. ANY SUGGESTIONS


It sounds like your paper stock may be too thick for the printer. Many printers do not handle paper heavier than about 26 lb. without some problems. The issue is the paper-rollers are not sufficiently strong to grab the paper, bend it toward the paper path, and then feed the paper into the machine.

Try using a lighter weight paper - 20 to 24 lb. max., and see if the printer does a better job for you!

Paper feed catches on right side


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

5610 will not print on color paper


I'm wondering if the paper weight and/or size is exceeding the printer's specifications. The paper tray specs on HP's site says it will take up to 110 lb card stock, but as far as paper stock, it can take only up to 24 lbs. Have a look at the printer's product specifications page and see if this could be the issue:

Paper keeps jamming


To print card stock you must us the manual slot in the front of the printer and feed one at a time. Also open the back flap door so the card stock can exit out the back instead of trying to bend around for the try. That will give you the staight paper path that your thick stock needs.
