Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Using a C3100 series HP inkjet printer, I'm trying to print HP Iron-on Transfer Paper but when I select that option, I cannot get the appropriate reverse image need for ironing on the transfer. What's wrong?

    My computer is a Mac Mini running Mac OSX 10.6.4 Snow Leopard. The file I'm trying to print is a descendant chart generated by Reunion 8, a family history application. The problem could be with my Mac, but it acts like an HP printer problem more than a Mac problem. If I were running a MS Dos-based machine, I could easily blame Bill Gates but in the more than 20 years working with Macintosh this is the first time I've encountered such an unusual glitch.

The steps vary by printer. I've got a c7280 installed and the options for me are to click Print > Preferences > Advanced > Mirror image. When you click on Mirror image, you change it from 'off' to 'on'. Click OK to save the setting and print. Be sure to change it back after you're done printing your transfers.

    Thanks, HP employee, but I don't have the same options. My options are FILE > PRINT > LAYOUT > Paper Type: AUTOMATIC > SPECIALITY PAPER > HP IRON-ON TRANSFER. I see no option anywhere for Mirror Image. Even the directions for using HP printers that came with the transfer paper reads Print Mode Settings: HP Iron-on Transfer. I'm still stuck up in a tree with a grizzly bear. That is, I still can't get the performance I expected from the printer.

    What type of a file are you trying to print? If it's in single image file, you can invert the graphic in Microsoft Paint in Windows Vista. The steps should be very similar in XP and Win 7. To invert the image in Paint, open the image, click Image, click Flip/Rotate, select Flip Horizontal, and click OK. Save the file with a new name so you keep the original. Then print the new inverted file you created.

    If you're trying to print a different file type, can you give me some more information? What operating system are you using? Do you have any HP icons on your desktop from your install?

    Sorry, you didn't mention Mac in your post. I assumed Windows. Here's what he said.

    "1. File/Print
    2. Select Paper Type/ Quality from the drop down menu -
    2a. select Paper Type -
    2b. select Specialty paper -
    2c. select Hp Iron on Transfer
    3. Back to the main drop down menu
    4. Select Layout -
    4a. Check Flip Horizontally option

    5. Print on plain paper first to test if all is well, than double check settings and then print on Transfer paper
    "

    Let me know if that works.

When I try to print on a 6x6 envelope on my hp envy 110 printer it tells me it is the wrong size paper. No where is there a setting for a 6x6


Print labels and envelopes


With the HP ENVY 110 series, you can print on a single envelope, a group of envelopes, or label sheets
designed for inkjet printers.


To print a group of addresses on labels or envelopes


1. Print a test page on plain paper first.
2. Place the test page on top of the label sheet or envelope, and hold both up to the light. Check the spacing for
each block of text. Make adjustments as needed.
3. Load the labels or envelopes into the paper tray.
CAUTION: Do not use envelopes with clasps or windows. They can get stuck in the rollers and cause
paper jams.
4. Slide paper-width guides inward against the stack of labels or envelopes until the guides stop.
5. Select the appropriate options.
• On -Paper/Quality- tab select a Plain paper type.
• Click the [Advanced] button, and select the appropriate envelope size from the Paper Size drop down
menu.
6. Click [OK], and then click [Print] or [OK] in the Print dialog box.




If you print from within a program that DOES have that listed (like M$ Word,) then you don't need the limited printer driver to specify the paper size.
