    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!!!).

Adjust the paper settings in the print driver. The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.

  1. Open a document in the program in which it was created.
  2. Click File .
  3. Click Print .
  4. Click Properties . The Printer Properties dialog box displays.
  5. Click the Paper/Quality tab.
  6. In the Size is drop-down menu, select the size of the paper loaded in the unit.
  7. In the Type is drop-down menu, select the type of paper loaded in the unit.

Printer prints on regular paper but when I try to print on photo paper it shows the paper tray as empty


Check default tray when you print. See which tray it says it is looking for. It may be looking for the 4x6 photo tray when u want it to print on the 8x11 tray

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.

Efforts to print 4x6 borderless print result in only top part of photo paper being used and top third of photo being cut off


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...)

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
