My epson xp-312 will not print on photo keeps saying paper can i load when the back tray only allows one sheet of normal paper?

When a printer indicated paper jam, it means one of its sensors does not indicate a movement of paper, where it expects it. In only rare occasions the sensor is defect, but most of the time here is really a jam. This must not be a complete sheet of paper. Can be a little scrap left somewhere in the printer. Sometimes a paperclip fell in or just a paper tray was not put in place. Please open the printer and look careful using a flash light, to see if you can find anything that does not belong in the printer. Then switch it off and really unplug it for a few seconds. Reinsert the plug and switch on. If the error keeps coming back you should call a service centre, although ig you have to send it in for repairs, a new printer is probably cheaper, unless it is still under warranty.

I want to print photos from my laptop onto four by six photo paper, and i loaded the photo tray with the paper, and changed the tray preference to photo tray, but it's still telling me that there's no...

You also need to change the paper type in printing preferences.You will find 4x6 and 4x6 with tab in th pull down menu where it says plain paper. Be sure to position the paper as far as it will go into the printer and close the paper controls to hold it there. Also fan it well before you put it in.

When I try print a picture on my printer dock the paper doesn't load from the tray. The light goes on showing that the paper tray is empty. Thanks Maria

Only put about 20 sheets in at a time and fan the sheets a few times before loading them, so they don't stick together. Although they come in packs of 25, the docks work better if you just take a few out of the pack before loading the tray. You can easily put them in, after you print a few pictures.

I am trying to print from the photo tray of my HP

Hello Michelle,

You have to go into your print settings of the application in use and select "Paper Type/Quality", then from the drop down menu you will see "Source" as an option, from there select "PHOTO TRAY".

HP 6940 rejects 8.5" X 11" glossy photo paper for printing

Is it a front feed and then the output is also goes out to the front? Coz if your glossy paper is to tough that it will not bend easily, this is what you get. Why not try to use a thin and more flexing photo paper if the outcome will be the same.

Usually when using thick paper the most desirable printer should be a top feed-front output with almost less than 90 degree bend.

Photos in Mac's iPhoto will not print from the photo paper tray. They always print on paper in the main paper tray (this is on an HP C7280 printer). I had an HP Photosmart 8250 and it was the same with...

This is an older post, but it appeared to be unanswered. In iPhoto once a photo is selected, you hit "Print" at the bottom right. A preview screen with options comes up. Once the correct options there are chosen, you need to hit print again - but it does not print yet. Instead a second "Print" window opens. In the middle of this window there is an "iPhoto" button with arrow buttons on the right. The arrow buttons open a drop down menu. Choose "Paper/Paper Quality" from that menu, and it will give you a button for "Source." The arrow buttons on the right of the "Source" button allow you to choose "Photo Tray."
Once it's changed, you don't need to redo it each time you print an additional photo, since iPhoto reverts to "Last Used Settings." But as a shortcut for future sessions, you can save these settings using the "Preset" button located at the top of the second "Print" window (the window where the "iPhoto" button is located). I used "Photo Tray" in the description so it would be obvious, since I don't print pictures every day.

Will not go to photo tray to print 4X6 picture

This is why Mac's are EVIL!!!! LOL, anyway try using the software, that comes with the printer, and tell it which paper type, and tray to use. Also try printing on a PC, and see if it works then, as you may have to live with this as the solution.

Can't print onto 4x6 photo paper

Did you try this from HP.
I also suggest you remove the back door & clean the wheels with a clean no lint water dampend rag. Replace the door.

Will not print cd covers

Describe what YOU call CD covers? There is an anomaly here. Are you simply printing onto a4 paper for jewel case inserts or do you mean actually printing onto the CD.
