If you printer support that specification of paper it will print on it. You have to select appropriate paper type from printer settings.

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.

HP C5280 printer jams all the time at the same point in the page


More than likely there is a small piece of paper caught between one of the small rollers and the metal frame that hold it. Get a flashlight and look real good.

My hp 915 having trouble printing photos with glosy papers


don't try to put heavy weight paper like 230 gsm in hp 915, it's not a photo printer (MFP), use upto 170-180 gsm only for gears safety, for heavy weight media try another photosmart series printer.

My HP photosmart c5280 keeps saying there is a carriage jam. what is this?


Lift the printer cover. undo the 2 screws (torx head). remove the right hand end of the printer casing.

You will see a blavck plastic moulding with a couple of gears (it controls the cartridge cleaning). This is the cause of your jam - it is out of sync. Turn the machine on and watch what happens with this moulding you will see what I mean by out of sync and it can just be gently pushed back into alignment. Once it is ok turn the unit off and then on again and your jam should be cleared. Put it back together again and print away.

C5280 won,t print


I had a problem with my C5280 installing another copy of itself when I restarted my computer. Check to see that you don't have multiple copies installed and are possibly trying to print to the wrong one.
