I need to feed custom paper into my C5580. It is 8.75" x 5.75" inch cardstock for shower invitations. How do I set up to print on this paper? I keep getting the paper size mismatch error. ...


You'll need to change the paper size in the printer setup options. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. In the software application you're printing from, go to File menu and select "Print."
  2. Open the dialog box that will open the printer's properties, options, setup or preferences (name depends on the software used).
  3. Click the Features tab.
  4. Under Resizing Options in the Size drop-down list, select "More."
  5. Choose "custom paper size" to enter the dimensions of your card stock.
There are other options you may want to tweak to customize the print job for your paper type, resolution, orientation, &c., as well.

Good luck!

How can I print envelopes on my HP C5180. I've had it over 2 years and have never been able to get it to print any size envelopes. I always get a 'paper mismatch' message. HP tech support has never...


I tried all of the suggestions on here and nothing worked. My envelopes are 5x7.3. So, I finally just put in 5x7 and lo and behold, even though there truly was a paper mismatch this time since that was NOT the size of the envelopes, they printed. I did have to move the text boxes some to make them print correctly. So, I guess the solution for my printer is to actually mismatch the size of the paper/envelope so that you will NOT get the "paper mismatch" error message. Will it work on other size envelopes? I have no clue. This is the first time I've ever been able to print an envelope at all with this printer that I've had 2 or 3 years.

Paper mismatch


I just went thru this same problem and I spent 1 hour with HP customer service and we came to the conclusion there is a malfunction with the printer's main sensor. They are sending me a new printer. I also had a problem with making copies and it would only print out 1/4 of the page. I think the sensor is TOO sensitive and if you get a paper jam and you try to pull it out, it creates a problem with the sensor. I suggest two things #1. call HP and go thru the 1 hour and they will determine the same and they will send you a new printer. #2.You can wait, if you have a spare printer, until I receive mine to see if the same thing happens. It could be a defective sensor with this model. I have an older HP PSC 750 and it still works great!

Can't Print Invitations


There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

Printing to 4 x 6 paper


Hello oyam26,
For any paper mismatch issue, first thing you do is try to set the paper type to plain. This will fix the issue in most of the cases.

gud luck
