If you put regular paper in the tray as it is asking does the printer use the regular paper to print the picture? If so, be sure the 4x6 photo paper tray (with photo paper) is pushed all the way in, and when you select print there should be an option (probably hidden in a submenu) to select the photo tray as the paper source. If you are printing from Adobe Acrobat, I have not found a reliable way to get the c6180 to use the photo paper tray.
I hope this helps.
First thing to try (and I'm assuming you're attempting to print a photo within HP Image Zone & have already selected the 4x6 photo tray? Hint: can be done via printer, properties, printing shortcuts) is to change the 'more options' directly below where you'd selected the 4x6 image size and then change to 'shrink to fit' vs. the default 'crop to fit'... Additional thoughts includes rotating the image (can be done directly on the preview screen...)
Set the default printer driver settings to print 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch) photos
Make sure 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch) photo paper is loaded into the photo tray.
The Photo Tray light on the printer does not have to be lit when printing from a computer.
Click Start and then click Control Panel .
Click Printers and Faxes .
Right-click the icon for the HP Photosmart 8200 Series and select Printing Preferences .
On the Paper/Quality tab, select 4x6 or 4x6 with tab from the Size is drop-down menu (under Paper Options).
Make sure that the Source is box is set to Photo tray .
Click the Borderless Printing box if borderless prints are desired.
Click Apply and then click OK .
Open the software program you wish to use and set up the pictures you want to print. Make sure to select a 4x6 inch layout for the photos within the software program before you print from the software program.
At the printer:
1. Remove any paper from the input tray
2. Put a few sheets of 4x6 (10 or so) in the same tray
3. Adjust the paper holder bar so that the 4x6 paper stays straight in place. The holder bar was holding the 8x11 paper in place.
On the computer:
