Go to the setup section in the menu of your printer and select the kind of paper you are using to print ("everyday photo", "photo semigloss", etc.)

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

Loading your paper
Paper loading tips:
● Load paper with the side to be printed facing down.
● You can print photos and documents on a wide variety of paper sizes, from
8 x 13 cm (3 x 5 inch) up to 22 x 61 cm (8.5 x 24 inch). The 10 x 15 cm
(4 x 6 inch) photo paper is available with and without tabs.
● Before loading paper, pull the Main paper tray out (use the Main tray release or
the tray grips) and slide out the paper-width and paper-length guides to make
room for the paper. After loading paper, adjust the guides to fit close to the edges
of the paper without bending the paper. When finished loading paper, push the
Main tray back in all the way.
● Load only one type and size of paper at a time in the same tray.
● After loading paper, extend the Output tray extension to catch your printed pages.
Use the directions in the following table to load the most commonly used paper sizes
into the printer.

This HP C6180 printer will do fine for awhile, then it will quit printing and will give a message of "place paper face down in tray". It is white paper and there is no face down. Please help.l Patra...


Believe it or not, some paper manufacturers have subtle differences in the way that the paper is cut (even for plain white computer paper), so that there is an up-side and a down-side, so it affects the "feeding" action of slipping the next piece of paper into the printing path.

This could be important for special paper types, but a real drag if you're printing text.

Try another batch or vendor of paper.

Smaller items will only feed crookedly into the printer document


Check to see if you are feeding the envelopes and 4x6 cards/photo paper correctly.

Both envelopes and 4x6 cards must be loaded and centered on the paper exit tray (not inside the paper input tray).

Printing envelopes:
  • Up to 15 envelopes can be loaded at a time.
  • The print side of the envelope faces down.
  • The envelopesare centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You print the envelopes with Landscape orientation.
Printing cards:
  • Up to 35 greeting cards, index cards, postcards, or photo cardscan be loaded at a time.
  • The print side of the cards faces down.
  • The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.

For images on how to correctly load the paper, download your printer user's guide:

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.
Step two: Check the condition of the paper and reload it
1. Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, curled, wrinkled, or bent.
NOTE: Use only plain, white, unused paper in the product until the issue is resolved.
2. Make sure that all the paper is the same size and type. Because only one type of paper can be used in the product at a time, paper types should never be mixed.
3. Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
4. Make sure that the stack of paper to be loaded in the product contains no fewer than 10 and no more than 25 sheets of paper.
NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the product.
5. Insert the stack of paper into the product and gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper. Make sure that the paper is completely inserted into the product and can be picked up by the paper rollers.
6. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, try loading different brands of paper and different types of paper, one type at a time, into the product and then try printing again.
If the issue persists, continue with the next step.
Step three: 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 being used to print.
2. Click File , click Print , and then click Properties . The product Properties dialog box appears.
3. Click the Paper/Quality tab.
4. Choose the appropriate paper size from the Size is drop-down menu.
5. Choose the appropriate paper type from the Type is drop-down menu.
6. Click OK and then click OK again to print the document..
7. If the issue is not resolved, continue with the next step.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved and it is necessary to print on another type of paper, load the new paper type into the product and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new paper.These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings return to the default the next time the program is opened.
Step four: Clean the rollers
1. Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
2. Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
3. Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
4. Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
5. Close the access door and plug in the power cord.
6. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step five: Service the product
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.
If your product is less than a year old, don't worry, HP can trace the product when you provide the model and the serial number and will help you if it is in warranty. No prove of purchase required.
