I had the same problem and ended up in a very long chat session with HP online. It was very helpful -- they basically had me reset the printer to the factory settings. Press and hold print photos and red eye removal for 3 seconds. The printer should show Mfg Commands and under that it shows Enter Special Key Combo. In a sequence press red eye removal then print photo then red eye removal. It should then show uiaux and Support VixxFN0724AR. Press the right arrow key twice. It should then show Resets Menu. Press ok. It will then say Country/Language Reset. Press the right arrow key till you get the option of semi-full reset. Press ok. The printer should turn off. Wait about 10 - 15 seconds and then turn the printer on.

I basically told you what the chat session person said. If that doesn't work, I highly recommend that you get online support (it should be free) via their chat support.

Good luck!

    We were having a problem with a c7250 that kept booting to a blue screen and then giving a B error code. We finally got it to start again by unpugging the power supply from the wall, When it came up we used "*" + "#" and "123" to get to the system menu. But in our case we went into boot options and choose user. It's seems to be back to normal now.

Have you set the printer to accept the heavier weight paper?
Unless you have, it won't pull it in, as the rollers won't be ready for a heavier weight paper.
Do it in properties, before you print, so that the printer knows what is coming. Then your paper will transport through the priner.

hi

  • Turn on the Epson 875DC and the attached computer. Make sure the cable between the two devices is securely in place.
  • Step 2 Remove any paper that is in the printer's feeder tray. Place the 4x6 photo paper printable side up in the tray, with the support sheet at the bottom of the stack of photo paper. Adjust the paper guides so they are pressed against the margins of the paper.
  • Step 3 Open the photos to be printed in your computer software program of choice. When you are ready to print the photos, click on the "File" link at the top of the window, then choose "Print." Click on "Properties" and select "4x6" for the paper size and "Photo Paper" under the paper type. Click "OK" to close the "Properties" window, then click "OK" again to print the photos.

    How do I select mirror image (reverse image) from HP Photsmart


    When you select Print and the Print window opens, select Preferences.

    Click on the Advanced tab. Look for the "Mirror Image" option. It should be "Off". If you click on "Off" the drop down menu should appear to change it to "On". Click "OK" at the bottom. Then click "Print" on the Print window.

    Don't forget to change it back when you are done. :-)

    (Note: If the Mirror Image option is not on the Advanced tab, look on the Effects tab.)

    HP c7180 message "Push output photo tray all the way down"


    I have the HP C7280 and I was able to fix the problem.
    HP seems to have 3 trays. The bottom tray is for the paper. The middle one has a small blue tray for the photos and the top tray is where the paper comes out.
    Well I lifted the top tray where the paper comes out (it can angle up) and then I clicked OK on the problem. I may have even rebooted, but then I got a new error message which is good. It said to push photo tray (the small blue tray) all the way in which I pulled out and pushed back in. Then I pushed the top tray down so all is flat again. I clicked OK and it re-calibrated with no more error messages! Hope this helps.

    Photo Paper Feed


    hi,

    the issue that you have might need to change some settings from the printing properties. WHen you hit on PRINT, a box will open, right? look on the top right of that box, you will see "PROPERTIES" or "Preferences" just click on it, then another box will open. Click on Printing Shortcuts tab, try to review the settings. And if you want to print using the main tray, it should set it to Automatic select or Main tray. And make sure that it sets to General Printing. But if youre going to print a photo, you will have options there to choose what type of paper when you click on that, the settings on the paper size, paper source, etc. will change also. For paper source, make sure that it sets to Photo Tray.

    If you will be able to open printing preferences, all options are there, you just need to read and choose which settings you want to use.

    Thank you so much.
