Don't set by using the "Print" option.
Go to [Start]
[Printers and Faxes]
right-click on the HP Printer entry
! Don't select "Printing Preferences"! from there
Select [properties]
Select [Advanced] tab
Select [Printing Defaults]
[Advanced}
(I know, the screen looks the same, but it functions differently this way)
Change paper size to "Letter"
[OK, OK, OK]
*done*

When the print icon comes up when printing, select properties, there will be a place to select the paper size, orientation, etc. You can also change it by going to printers and right clicking the icon and change the properties that way.

Paper size mismatch


1. Measure the paper you are using. A4 or Letter.
2. Set your printer driver default (on the computer) to the size in step 1
3. In each of the program like excel, word or adobe, remember to check page setup and make sure the size is that same as the paper size.

Hp officejet 6500A Plus error message paper size is incorrect. Cannot get anything to print!


On your PC, what is the default setting for this printer. Check in the printer and accessories of Windows.
The paper size might be defaulted to A4 rather than Letter. That mismatch would cause the printer to
error out every time.
