Hello SLeolioness

Please, go HERE for HP's support page for your printer.

HERE you will find the manuals that are available for your printer.

You can change the photo sizes on the front control panel. Please, go HERE and scroll down to the HELP section. [ Photo sizes ] is on the 3rd row.

I think that may be it because if you go further down to the PREFERENCES section, you'll see an option there for printing Passport Photos.

While still in preferences, look at the 5th row from the bottom. There you'll see how the printer can automatically detect the paper size.

In the 4th row from the bottom, it explains how a print preview option can be set. In this way, it will allow you to preview the photo(s) your about to print in the selected layout. (Not an option on all printers, however.)

So, it would appear that by using the proper combination of tray size, paper, and menu selection (for the photo size) you will be able to print to 8.5 x 8.5 photos.

* Very often it will take more than one

* and an expert in order to resolve your
* problem. If a proposed solution doesn't
* work for you, don't rate it yet. Instead,
* post back here letting us know and we'll

    Hello SLeoLioness

    How did it go? Did the information and links I provided you w/ enable you to determine how to print 8.5 x 8.5 photos?

    I DO hope that is the case. :) If it isn't, please, post back here and we'll continue to work w/ you.

    If it is the case, would you kindly take just a moment to close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my "solution"? I would be very grateful for your generosity and show of appreciation.

    Thank you once again for using FixYa! Have a beautiful day.

Every time I turn on my computer my hp 8450 photosmart starts up and prints a page with this message on it (USBC0$C0. I have tried everything to get the printer not to start until I want to Print but no...


This is a long shot but have you recently installed new ink? I have seen a lot of people mentioning a similar problem since the newer ink cartridges.
If yes, then print an alignment page and go through the instructions, it shouldnt (fingers crossed) happen again after that. Let me know how you get on :)

My HP Photomart 8450 prints in black sporadically.


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
