Hi....take it to a tech to check about the system control chip... the control chip would have gone bad... and they will replace u with a new chip..
or else Try manually moving the head carriage back and forth a few times!
Also check, if there isn't some piece of paper lodged inside, if yes try to remove it carefully!..

these are the possible solutions u can try out...
thank u
rate me

Doesn't print on cardstock


Inkjet should always prints no matter what type of printing material you use since they only spray inks (laser will be different). Even if it is not compatible you will still see inks / smudge all over the surface. Try check your actual colour againts the paper it might be too similar hence not visible.

I need to feed custom paper into my C5580. It is 8.75" x 5.75" inch cardstock for shower invitations. How do I set up to print on this paper? I keep getting the paper size mismatch error. ...


You'll need to change the paper size in the printer setup options. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. In the software application you're printing from, go to File menu and select "Print."
  2. Open the dialog box that will open the printer's properties, options, setup or preferences (name depends on the software used).
  3. Click the Features tab.
  4. Under Resizing Options in the Size drop-down list, select "More."
  5. Choose "custom paper size" to enter the dimensions of your card stock.
There are other options you may want to tweak to customize the print job for your paper type, resolution, orientation, &c., as well.

Good luck!

Problem printing on thicker paper


The error that you are getting is telling you that the paper size or type you picked in setup is not what the printer is detecting. Once you verify that you did choose the right type & size, the next thing to check is to make sure the paper path is clear. If a piece of paper is covering a sensor this might cause the message to appear. If you don't see anything in the way, take a can of compressed air and blow out the path.

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.
