Re: no photo paper showing in "TYPE OF PAPER
I would recommend using the thick paper settings, also just pull on the front of the tray and then you need to remove the paper in there and then adjust the guides to fit the paper, also if you are using A4/Ltr/lgl then you will also need to collapse the back section by pushing down on buttons and then pushing on the back to shorten the unit
Also remember that this printer was not designed for photo printing, also make sure to place the paper face up(the side you want to print on)

This question has not been answered. Has anyone figured out how to change the 'Paper Type" setting in the copy menu from photo paper to normal paper? Also how do I change the quality setting from "standard quality" to draft etc.
Follow these steps to change print settings, and then print in Mac OS X 10.6.
Step one: Select your product
In the program from which you want to print, click File , and then click Print .
Figure 11: Click File, and then click Print
Select your product from the Printer: drop-down list.
Step two: Change print settings
Type the number of copies to print in the Copies text box.
If you want to print multiple copies, select the Collated check box to print the pages of each copy in order.
Select the pages of the print job that you want to print. To print all pages, select All. To print a specific range of pages only, type the page number that begins the page range in the From text box. Then, type the page number that ends the page range in the To text box.
Select the size and type of paper loaded in the product from the Paper Size drop-down list.
Select the orientation for your print job. To print in portrait orientation, click the icon on the left. To print in landscape orientation, click the icon on the right.
Step three: Change the paper type and quality settings
After the Orientation section, click the drop-down, and then select Paper Type/Quality .
This drop-down usually defaults to the program specific drop-down. In this example, the drop-down is the TextEdit drop-down.
Figure 12: Select Paper Type/Quality
Adjust the Paper Type setting to match the paper loaded in the product.
Adjust the Quality setting to change the print quality of the printed page.
Select Print Borderless to print photos without a white border.
To change the color profile or to turn on Photo Fix, click the arrow next to Color Options to display the Color Options menu.
Figure 13: Color Options menu1 - Paper Type/Quality menu options2 - Color Options menu (only available if you click Color Options)
Step five: Print the print job
After all the settings match the needs of the print job, click Print on the Print window to print the document or print job.
You have to match your print settings with the correct type of media used !
When you print, set the preferences, set to PHOTO quality and not draft, set paper type to PHOTO PAPER, or GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER whichever - If you select wrong media type your colors might be off. Select the settings that match the closest to your media. If you use paper use "plain paper" setting, if you use glossy photo paper, use "glossy photo paper" as settings and PHOTO quality.
I recommend use you use inkjet PHOTO paper, glossy, you can use HP or EPSON or even the cheap LIKON ones work amazing for me, they should be able to dry quickly, if they don't you are not using the correct settings.
By your description above it looks like you are using economy or draft mode - NOT good for photo paper.
Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.
It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

You have to specify the paper type in the printer properties. Look in the printer properties folder and navigate to the paper type or options. You'll find a place where you can specify what kind of paper you have.
Did you change any of the configurations on your printer. Most photo printers have color settings that are media dependent. It sounds like you might have it set to print on regular paper but not on photo paper. There are a lot of settings that you can accidentally change on a printer so I would suggest uninstalling the printer then reinstalling it and see if that is the issue.
