I wish to use my HP Photosmart C8180 to print heavy weight cardstock... is there a setting that I can select to do this?


Step Three: Check the paper type Verify that only recommended paper is being used for printing. The recommended paper types and weights for most HP printers include:
  • Plain paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Legal size paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Card stock, up to a maximum of 110 lb (200 gsm)
  • Envelopes, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Photo paper, 145 lb (236 gsm)
NOTE: Supported paper weights and types vary by product. Check the Specifications sheet for your product for more information.

If you use card stock up to a maximum of 110lb then there should be no special mode to enter to print on this type of paper. Photo paper weighs in at 145 lb maximum which is heavier and can be printed on without selecting any special 'mode.'

Good luck on printing on heavy card stock.

Shows out of paper. Says paper jam. Open door . Clear carriage. Press ok. Cannot solve problem!!! 75 years old with 1st computer!


Out of paper
Cause: There is not enough paper in the input tray.
Solution: If the HP All-in-One is out of paper or there are only a few sheets
remaining, load more paper in the input tray. If there is paper in the input tray, remove
the paper, tap the stack of paper against a flat surface, and reload the paper into the
input tray. To continue your print job, press OK on the control panel of the HP All-in-
One.
Cause: The rear door is off the HP All-in-One.
Solution: If you removed the rear door to clear a paper jam, replace it.
rear door.
Paper can also jam in the automatic document feeder. Several common actions can
cause paper to jam the automatic document feeder:
• Placing too much paper in the document feeder tray. For information on the maximum
number of sheets allowed in the automatic document feeder, see Technical
information.
• Using paper that is too thick or too thin for the HP All-in-One.
• Trying to add paper to the document feeder tray while the HP All-in-One is feeding
pages.
To clear a paper jam from the rear door
1. Press in the tab on the left side of the rear door to release the door. Remove the door
by pulling it away from the HP All-in-One.
CAUTION: Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the HP All-in-One can
damage the print mechanism. Always access and clear paper jams through the
rear door.

Try clearing all paper from all carriages (Top,Rear, Front, etc. then reinserting proper amounts. Even the smallest piece of paper can cause a jam. Here is a user manual in case you don't have one you can get it here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00844812.pdf

This is a PDF and it is searchable and easy to navigate (Red lettering will take you to that section), so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (if you don't already have it you can get free here:
http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Also, once you have done all you can turn the printer off for a moment then turn it back on.
Hope this helps. Good luck

consider giving me a good rating and a quick thanks

Copier jamming/copy printing sideways


If it jams every copy then it sounds like the paper tray size is not programmed properly. This is also why the print is the wrong direction on the page. So the copier thinks it has 8.5X11 loaded like this > -- and instead it is loaded like this > |
I hope that makes sense. So this not only causes the print to be the wrong direction but since the paper dimension are different that what the machine expects then it throws the sensor timing off and results in a paper jam. So just open your paper trays and check the paper size dials in the trays to make sure they match the paper size AND direction of the paper loaded into that tray.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Kodak 5300 paper jam


What kind of paper is jamming?
The paper could be too thin, or too thick.

Have any young children visited you recently?

My neighbour's grandson thought the paper tray was a great place to hide his Oreo cookie and gummy bears. The crumbs on the roller made the paper wrap around inside. It was cheaper to buy a new printer than pay for a tear down. This happened to my neighbour over Christmas.

Check for spilled ink inside the cartridge area.
If Ink has dripped down on the rollers, that would jam the paper. This would only be an issue if anyone moved the printer. Could your cleaning person have done this? It happend to me, once.

Have you checked the slider that adjusts for different paper sizes?
It could be putting too much tension on the paper and throwing off the timing of the paper travelling through the printer, so the sheet is in the wrong place at the wrong time and jams up.

Is it 8.5" x 11" photo grade inkjet paper or 4" x 6" photo paper?

Before I print, I check that the paper type setting matches what is in the tray. If it is letter size premium photo paper, then I choose that paper in the printer settings. If it is premium letter size paper for documents then I choose that paper, so the printer can adjust itself to the paper.

Are you using recycled paper?
My Kodak, HP, Epson, and Canon printers jam. Recycled paper really screws up my machines. I don't like it and can't use it.

Do you have too much paper in the tray?
Try 5 or 10 sheets only in the tray to see if the amount of paper was the culprit.

Have you tried a different package or brand of paper?
One time a package of 500 sheets of HP inkjet wouldn't go through my KODAK , but worked fine in
the other printers. The next package of HP paper worked fine.

How long has the paper been out of the package and sitting in the printer?

Try fanning the paper.

Has the humidity in your area drastically changed in the past week?
I have to keep the paper sealed in the original package. Inkjet paper out of the package is affected by humidity where I live. Winter heating causes out of package paper to collect static and stick to the rollers. Summer temperatures with high humidity causes out of package inkjet paper to absorb moisture from the room. This humid paper sticks together.

Is the paper meant for a photo copier or laser printer/copier?
I get lousy results with non-inkjet paper in every brand of injet printer I use.

Is it Brand name InkJet paper, like Kodak, XEROX, or HP?
I stick to brand name inkjet and photo paper. Dollar store paper always jams in my printers.

For Document Printing I use either:
Kodak's 24 lb Ultimate Inket Printer Brightness 98 paper,
XEROX Premium Inkjet Brightness 98 24 lb,
or
HP 96 Brightness Premium Inkjet Printer 24 lb paper.

For Photo Printing I use Kodak's Ultra Premium Photo Paper, and adjust the printer's settings for it.

5610 will not print on color paper


I'm wondering if the paper weight and/or size is exceeding the printer's specifications. The paper tray specs on HP's site says it will take up to 110 lb card stock, but as far as paper stock, it can take only up to 24 lbs. Have a look at the printer's product specifications page and see if this could be the issue:

Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.


Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!

Printing jammed on thicker paper


See the manual. It looks as if 120g/m2 is the heaviest paper it can use:
"Set Type to correspond to the paper loaded in the tray from
which you want to print. This will let you get the best quality
printout. If not, print quality may not be acheived as you want.
Thin: Less than 19 lb (70 g/m2) thin paper.
Thick: 24 lb to 32 lb (90~120 g/m2) thick paper.
Cotton: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) cotton paper such as Gilbert
25 % and Gilbert 100 %.
Plain Paper: Normal plain paper. Select this type if your printer is
monochrome and printing on the 16 lb (60 g/m2) cotton paper.
Recycled: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) recycled paper.
Color Paper: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) color-backgrounded
paper."
