Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

2600N: glossy paper

I keep trying to print 5x7 glossy stock and the printer cannot seem to feed it appropriately and keeps jamming. I printed the same stock sized at 3.5x5 with no problem.

Is there another way besides adjusting the settings to get it to print? I've tried each setting and none seem to work.

Is this HP glossy paper? I would think that laser printers have a hard enough time handling any glossy paper as it is because you run the risk of the gloss burning as the paper goes through the printer so you might have to use the paper recommended by HP.

Here are the specs of the accepted paper.

I have an HP Photosmart A646 printer that I bought in the hopes of printing to 5x7 card stock. We have pre-printed card stock that we use for gift certificates and we need to be able to feed the card stock...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-

1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate.
2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.)
3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'.
4) Enter 5x7 for height and width.
5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.)
6) Select, Print.
7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'.
8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'.
9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.

Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.

Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print it.

Photo Paper keeps jamming


It's the top rollers, the paper is too slick to get through them. I'm using HP photo paper, in an HP printer. It needs to do a 180, but gets jammed right where it prints, so the paper never makes it to the ink. It's an engineering problem by HP. I suggest putting a rough surface on the top edge of the photo paper, something removable but rough enough for the printer to pull the photo paper through.

Printing 5x7 card stock in HP 1510 injet all-in-one printer


You need to set up your printer preferences to accommodate the type and size of paper you wish to use, usually listed under printer/print or page set up.

Invariably, paper is loaded, butted to either left or right of the paper feed, but on the other side of the feed there should be a sliding stop which keeps your paper in place.

If feeding from the top feed, print side towards you, if printing from a tray at the bottom of the printer, print face down.

You can download a user manual from here once you've chosen your model printer:-

Paper jam/no paper fed


make sure the photo paper is in glossy side face down,
set the paper type to photo.

If it keeps jamming it's because the paper feed is probably dirty and not taking the paper properly

Printe paper jam problem for brother dcp135c


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
