Do I need a special paper for this printer?

no not necessarily. I suggest you align your printer tray in such a way that it will instantly insert the paper and print it successfully. Otherwise the problem is maybe the unit itself or the drivers..

How do I print envelopes on Office Jet 6500?

  • Flip up the printer's output tray to reveal the input tray below and remove any paper in the input tray. Insert up to five envelopes into the input tray, print-side down, and slide the width guide so it touches the edges of the envelopes but does not bend them.

  • 2

    Fold the output tray back down and flip out the extension piece at the end of the tray. Fold up the paper stop at the end of the output tray's extension to keep the envelopes from falling out of the output tray.

  • 3

    Click "File" at the top of the software program you are using to create the text to be printed on the envelopes. Click the "Properties" or "Setup" button in the window that opens, then click on the tab labeled "Paper/Features."

  • 4

    Click the "Type Is" pull-down menu and select "Envelopes." Select the "Size Is" drop-down menu and click on the size of the envelopes you have loaded in the input tray. If you do not find the correct size, click "Custom" and type the height and width in the window that opens, then click "Save."

  • 5

    Click the "Source Is" drop-down menu and select "Tray 1." Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window to save your settings, then click the "Print" button to begin the print job.

    8 x 13 cm (3 x 5 inch) up to 22 x 61 cm (8.5 x 24 inch). The 10 x 15 cm
    (4 x 6 inch) photo paper is available with and without tabs.

    Hello sir, how to take print on A4 page? please help me

    Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
  • Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menumag-glass_10x10.gif next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
  • Step 6.Press "Print" to print the photograph.

    You have the settinigs on the printer wrong. There are two things you need to do:
    1. Open the tray and check that the paper guides are set to 8.5 x 11 (letter). There are both length and width guides in the paper tray, and EXEC size is quite a bit off from letter-it is more than 0.5 inch narrower than letter. It is also shorter than letter.
    2. On the printer, use the settings button to navigate to the paper size. (The exact wording may vary; it's been a while since I worked on a 4050. It may be under print settings.) Once you find the paper size menu, configure tray 2-yes, I'm sure-to use letter size, any type. By the way, on HP lasers, tray 1 is the fold down tray on the front, tray 2 is the tray that will hold 500 sheets of paper and is the "drawer" that you load. Don't ask me why they use that numbering system.

    How do you fax a document that is 11 by 14 inches?

    Most fax machines and printers will scan and fax an 11x14 document. Just check your owners manual to see if any settings need to be changed AND contact the person you are faxing to let them know to put 11x14 paper in their machine, or some of the print may be lost if the fax will be printed on two 8x11 sheets.

    If you don't have your owners manual, post a question and include the manufacturer and model number of your fax machine or printer and one of us will look it up for you.

    Hello, I have an invitation that is 4in wide x 9 inches in height. I want to print something on it, but not sure how to get my printer to recognize that I am using custom size paper. It keeps printing on...

    In addition to the wide variety of standard paper sizes available for this printer, you can use custom size paper in the Tray 1 (MPT).
    The size range for custom size media is as follows:
      Minimum allowable page size:
      89 x 140 mm (3.5 x 5.5 in.)
      Maximum allowable page size:
      216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 in.)
    1. Open Tray 1 (MPT).
    2. Insert the custom size paper and adjust the guides to match the size of the paper. Place the side to be printed facedown with the top of the page entering the printer first.
    3. When the front panel prompts you to confirm the type and size of paper:
      1. Scroll to Change by pressing the Down Arrow key and press the OK key.
      2. Scroll to the correct paper type and press the OK key to save your selection.
      3. For the paper size, scroll to Custom and press the OK key.
      4. Select Set Custom Width (W) by pressing the OK key.
      5. Press the Down Arrow or Up Arrow key to scroll to the desired value for X and then press the OK key.
      6. Scroll to Set Custom Height (H) and press the OK key.
      7. Press the Down Arrow or Up Arrow key to scroll to the desired value for Y and then press the OK key.
    4. Select the custom size in the printer driver.
    5. Windows 95 / Windows 98 / Windows Me PostScript driver: On the Setup tab:
      • After you select the Multi-Purpose Tray and the tray displays Custom to indicate that it has custom size paper, enter the dimensions of the custom size paper in the Width and Height boxes.
      • If you select Automatic for the paper source and select Custom Size for the paper size, enter the width and height values of the desired custom size paper in the Width and Height boxes. The values for width and height are initially 0. If you previously entered information in the boxes, the values are automatically entered.
      Windows NT / Windows 2000 / Windows XP PostScript driver: On the Paper/Quality tab:
      • If you select Choose Specific Tray, select the Multi-Purpose Tray.
      • If you select Automatic, you can select your custom size from the Paper Size drop-down list.
      • Click My Custom Sizes and highlight the custom size in the Current Selection list. The Name, Width, and Height boxes display the details about the highlighted custom size and the sample image changes to represent a scaled version of the custom size.
      • To create a new custom size:
        1. Click New.
        2. Enter the new name in the Name box.
        3. Enter the dimensions in the Width and Height boxes. The sample image changes to represent a scaled version of the new custom size.
        4. Click Save to add the new size to the list. Click Cancel to exit without saving the new custom size.
        5. To exit, click Close.
      • The My Custom Sizes box lists existing custom sizes that are supported by the current printer. Since these custom sizes are saved in your computer's operating system, they are available for you to select in your applications.
      • If you create a custom size in certain applications, the driver lists the custom size automatically.
      MacOS 8 / MacOS 9 driver:
      • In the Page Setup dialog box, click on Page Attributes, and select Custom Page Sizes. Then press New to enter a new custom page size. A dialog box appears where you can enter the width and height, margins, and name of the custom page size.

    Cannot print 11x14 paper on my Canon Pro9000 printer.

    The printing software you are using should have that size for you, I use photo gallery, after you select the image the pop-ups should be your printing software with the paper size choices.
