    My printer refuses to acknowledge that my 4x6 photo paper is the right size. I'll select all the right options from the pull down menus in the "advanced" printing tabs-- the right type and size of paper, the right tray, everything. Then as soon as the printer pulls in the paper, an error message comes up on the printer and the computer saying the photo paper is too small and that I should put in larger paper.

    My 8250 HP work perfectly when I use the photo tray AND the camera card....(4x6 or 8x10)....BUT when I try and use the 4x6 from the COMPUTER pictures that i have stored it continues to print them on the lower shelf (8x10).

    What am i doing wrong?

    My 8250 printer constantly tells me that it is out of paper, even though the tray is full. This is obviously a design flaw. I know that HP had major problems of this sort back in the mid 90s, but I thought they had solved those. Apparently not. Cleaning the rollers may help, but they are hard to get to. I guess my ultimate solution will be to take my lumps and throw this piece of garbage in the land fill and buy another printer (NOT HP!!!).

  1. Open a document in the program in which it was created.

Hp c6180 won't print from 4x6 photo paper tray


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.

Hi there!
The compatibility of the paper may affect the issue that you are having. I have a brother printer also and prints on 4x6 size what i can suggest is to try turn the photo paper upside down, so facing the tray, 2 sheets at the bottom should have the glossy side up. and the sheet where you need to print the photo should be facing down. So when the paper roller grabbed the photo paper at the top it will smoothly pass thru,
Hope this helps! Vikroks

How to load 4X6 photo paper


hi

  • Turn on the Epson 875DC and the attached computer. Make sure the cable between the two devices is securely in place.
  • Step 2 Remove any paper that is in the printer's feeder tray. Place the 4x6 photo paper printable side up in the tray, with the support sheet at the bottom of the stack of photo paper. Adjust the paper guides so they are pressed against the margins of the paper.
  • Step 3 Open the photos to be printed in your computer software program of choice. When you are ready to print the photos, click on the "File" link at the top of the window, then choose "Print." Click on "Properties" and select "4x6" for the paper size and "Photo Paper" under the paper type. Click "OK" to close the "Properties" window, then click "OK" again to print the photos.

    Instructions on printing a 4 x 6 card or photo on my HP 4280 All in One printer. How to I set up the printer?


    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:
    Open a picture
    Seect [File] [Print]
    Select the photo printer from the list
    Cick on [Preferences]
    See the paper type? select photo paper
    See the paper size? Select 4x6
    Quality (Best)
    [OK]
    [PRINT]

    Printing 4x6 photos on photo paper


    Sorry but your question seems to be unclear.
    Here are the solutions that I see:
    - try fixing the orientation of your paper on the printer:
    -- go to printer "properties" then select "paper" then set it to
    landscape or portrait. You might just have to cut the extra
    papers
    - try changing the paper size on the printer "properties" if it has
    no 4x6 then choose "custom size"
