HPDeskhet 1280.

Normally it is a A3 Model printer.

Check for the Printer Set up.

It should be 102 x 127 MM page size should be.

Both catridges - Black Hp51645A and HP C6578d Color should be properly installed in the printer and take a sample print out in A3 after setting the page size.

Still problem persists, will have to call the local printer engineer to set right the issue.

Have a Nice Day

Italian Solution (I am not able to translate it correctly ... )

Io ho avuto lo stesso identico problema.

-stampava in a4
-non mi stampava in A3
-non eseguiva allineamento cartucce in A4

ho letto vari post e ho provato la soluzione più semplice:
disattivare nelle Preferenze nella mascherina Base > Funzioni Avanzate > Sensore Larghezza Supporto

così facendo stampava anche gli A3 ... ok ... ma niente allineamento...

allora mi sono ricordato di una cosa.

Un giorno, dopo un inceppamento della carta,
ho trovato un piccolo pezzetto di plastica traparente con una specie di lente di ingrandimento grande circa 8x3mm ...che vagava nella stampante ... l'ho conservato ...

Ho capito che quella lentina serviva alla guida luminosa (luce blu)
che prima di stampare in A3 verifica se è caricato correttamente ...
dovevo rimetterla al suo posto, sotto la luce blu !!!

ho aperto il coperchio, ho tolto le cartucce, ho richiuso il coperchio, l'ho riaperto ... ora il gruppo testine è andato tutto a sinistra ... in modo pa poterci lavorare bene

ho smontato la parte in plastica nera sulla parte destra del gruppo testine, ho staccato delicatemente il chip della luce blu ed ho riattaccato la lentina nel verso corretto (il pernetto cilindrico verso il avanti, quello piatto verso il dietro)

ho messo un A4 bianco nel vassoio, ho rimontato le cartucce, ho chiuso il coperchio e ... magicamente ... è partito in automatico l'allineamento testine !!!!!!!!!!

ora funziona tutto correttamente ! come prima !

ciao a tutti

Thanks for the help Simon. I really Appreciate it. Have tried that already to no avail! Sadly! I think the poor thing may be coming to the end of its short but useful life!

Thanks again. If you can think of anything else I could try, please let me know.

Unable to print to canon IR7200


More than likely their is a problem with the file or that it is too large to process and has gotten stuck in the que on the copier. Go into printer set up and find restart server or clear server - it's ussually at the back end of all the settings. You want to clear the server and restart it. Then try printing a few pages of the file to see if their is an issue with it. If that prints then print half of the file, if it's has a lot of graphics pick a smaller chunk. You can also restart the server through the copiers internal web page - to get to that type the copiers ip address into internet explorer and it should bring it up.

Dell 3000cn keep getting load mpf when i try to print but there is paper in the tray. how do I get it to recognize the paper. I've changed nothing on the computer but this just started to happen! please...


I have a Dell 3010n myself, and a few times I did run into that "Load MPF" issue.
1.) Before printing a document, please check and see the properties. i.e. Kind/type of paper, which tray, or if printing envelopes or any other document than a regular 8 x11 paper. Putting all the tray and paper type selection on "Auto" can be very helpful.
2.) On the printer itself, there is a menu button where you can configure the type of paper, i.e. regular 20 llb. copy/print paper, glossy photopaper, thicker paper - after you place a fresh load on the paper tray and slide it in, usually it will ask you which type of paper you just loaded. Make sure it is the same settings as the document that you are trying to print: i.e. if document settings on computer was set to print on photopaper and you have regular paper on the tray, the printer will do a "Load MPF".
The paper sensor on it is amazingly (for a Dell, that is) sensitive and it can differentiate across a lot of paper types/thickness. If you have several computers and user across a network, and there are several paper-type settings done on the printer itself, this "Load MPF" issue will present itself more often.
In my case, it's simply because the person who recently changed the paper-type to glossy cover paper from some user who previously printed to a transparency forgot to revert MPF/Tray 1 to regular copy/print paper. Most cases, the printer setting on the PC has been left to print on to a transparency by default, so even if I stack the tray with copy paper to the hilt, it still will do "Load MPF".

A3 size does not feed automatically from tray on HP5550


Try this::: The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
  1. Open a document in the program being used to print.
  2. Click File , click Print , and then click Properties . The product Properties dialog box appears.
  3. Click the Paper/Quality tab.
  4. Choose the appropriate paper size from the Size is drop-down menu.
  5. Choose the appropriate paper type from the Type is drop-down menu.
  6. Click OK and then click OK again to print the document..
  7. If the issue is not resolved, continue with the next step.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved and it is necessary to print on another type of paper, load the new paper type into the product and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new paper.These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings return to the default the next time the program is opened. Let me know if it helps or I can research it some more.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hi, I am using ms word 2007 and need an a3 sheet format. Its not in the page set up drop down menu and the only solution I have is to customise my page size. Even doing this however, and increasing my...


The print sizes available are dependent on the printers installed.
If you don't have an a3 printer installed on your computer, there won't be a A3 option in word.
if you install a standard pdf printer like cutePDF(simulates printer, but instead of printing document on paper, it generates an adobe pdf-file from the document) the option should become available in your dropdown.

Problems printing an A4 document in A3


Ensure that the desired paper is set in a paper tray of the printer and select [Auto] in the paper selection of the printer driver. You may need to configure the margins in the sofware you are using. hope this will help you Daniel
