Hi I would suggest you to try once again by putting the shiny side up and print it again, some time even if the pages get stick with each other than also the printer wont take paper in. so try one more time and do reply if you still have the same problem or nay other.

Naiven.

How to load photo paper in paper tray canon mg5220


For front or front tray loading printers, shiny side down... for rear/back loading printers.., shiny side up. Pictures should be visible coming out of the exit slot. Using pre-cut photo paper requires some technique, if the paper holder does not have an adjustable paper width feature. Feed paper in one sheet at a time to prevent jambs.

f) Insert the stack of paper into the printer and then gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper.

g) Change 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 in the trays.

  • Open the access door to access to the rollers.
  • Clean the rubber rollers with a fur-free cloth lightly moistened with water.
  • Make sure that any papers that rest on the input tray, which are located at the back of the roller are cleaned. Mop with clean cotton moisten with water, might be required to reach these rollers.
  • Close the access door and plug in the power cable.
  • Try print once again.

When I use my Brother MFC-465 CN printer to print 4X6 photos with the photo paper bypass tray in proper position, it jams sending the photo paper through. Printer is set to 4x6; software set to photo as...


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

I've had this printer for a few years and it'd give me problems when I want to print from the photo tray 75% of the time. Very frustrating. I don't have money to put into a new printer either.

    My HP Photosmart D7260 is not printing pictures


    Ok! You didn't tell me how old is the printer, what type of paper and what size you tried to print so I'll do my best to help.

    Please note:
    • The photo paper cassette cannot be installed when printing on paper loaded in the in tray.
    • The 7260 printer support 5x7 media only when printing from a computer with the printer software installed.
    Loading 5 x 7 inch paper in the HP Photosmart 7260 printer
    1. Lift the main cover of the printer, and slide the paper width guide as far to the left as it will go.
    2. Lift the Out-tray and place a stack of paper in the In-tray.
      • Load the paper with the side to be printed facing down.
      • Load paper in the portrait orientation with the shortest edge feeding into the printer.
      • Do not use too much or too little paper. It may be difficult for the printer to pick up a sheet of paper when there are only one or two sheets in the in tray.
      • Use one type and size of paper at a time. Do not mix paper types or sizes in the In-tray.
    3. Push the paper into the printer as far as it will go without bending.
    4. Lower the Out-tray.
    5. Adjust the paper width guide to fit snugly against the edge of the paper without bending the paper. The paper width guide holds the paper straight as it feeds into the printer.
    6. Close the main cover.
    Load 4 x 6 inch (10 x 15 cm) photo paper in an HP Photosmart
    Use the photo cassette to load 4 x 6 inch (10 x 15 cm) paper. To print borderless photos, use 4 x 6 inch photo paper with a 0.5 inch tab (10 x 15 cm with 1.25 cm tab). This allows the photo to print without borders on three sides and with a small border on the bottom edge that can be torn off.
    HP does not recommend printing borderless photos on plain paper. Also, remove any paper from the In tray before inserting the photo cassette into the printer.
    1. Lift the top cover of the printer and remove the photo cassette from the sheath.
    2. Place up to 15 sheets of photo paper in the photo cassette with the side to be printed facing down. For tabbed paper, insert the paper so the tabbed end goes into the cassette first.
    3. Lift the main cover.
    4. Slide the paper width guide all the way to the left.
    5. Lift the Out tray and remove any paper that is in the In tray.
    6. Line the photo cassette up with the far right edge of the In tray.
    7. Gently slide the photo cassette into the printer until it snaps into place.
    8. Lower the Out tray.
    9. Slide the paper width guide to the right until it cradles the photo cassette, then close the main cover.
    If the Out of Paper message appears on the computer and the product stops picking up or feeding paper.
    Step one: Reset the product
    1. Without turning the product off, remove the power cord from the back of the product.
    2. Wait 30 seconds and then plug the power cord into the back of the product.
    3. If the product is not already on, use the On button to turn it on.

    Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.
