Hp c6180 won't print from 4x6 photo paper tray

If you put regular paper in the tray as it is asking does the printer use the regular paper to print the picture? If so, be sure the 4x6 photo paper tray (with photo paper) is pushed all the way in, and when you select print there should be an option (probably hidden in a submenu) to select the photo tray as the paper source. If you are printing from Adobe Acrobat, I have not found a reliable way to get the c6180 to use the photo paper tray. I hope this helps.

Happy new year and start reading solution with Smile and trust.
Based on information you have provided I understand that your printer has stopped loading the Paper.I recognize the importance of resolving this issue and I look forward in providing you with the necessary assistance you need.

Please check the Following Link to get the guidelines
"How to Load Paper" its silly to ask you but its better to keep information updated

Try by Following the steps below to correct the issue:
  1. Disconnect power to the printer.
  2. Remove all photo paper from the Photo Tray.
  3. Push the Photo Tray completely into the printer.
  4. Snap the Photo Tray out (towards you) sharply.
  5. Reconnect power to the printer.
  6. Print a self-test on 8.5 X 10 paper.
  7. Engage the Photo Tray.
  8. From the Printer Toolbox, select Calibrate the Photo Tray.

If the above solution wont work then there something to do with the Adjustment/alignment of the Tray.

Paper is not picked due to the Try --

If you see inside there will be a small rubber which need to be clean by the spirit .. Check this out as well .. as i tried on my printer and it works
Do slow and with care --

If it works Vote me
