Use the mpf tray. go to the machine press menu down arrow untll you get to tray settings. right arrow over till u get to paper type...then down arrow till you see paper size...right arrow again till u see tray 1...down arrow till you see mpf..right arrow till you see letter. Now that you are in the mfp section you can down arrow and you will see serveral selections I would keep it at letter. when you select it an * will appear next to letter. Then select menu and you and the printer is set. Now go to the print option in the program that you are using and when the dialog box to print opens select properties. go to paper quality the mpf should be selected in the tray souce. Now go down and you will see the advance button, click on that you will see Paper/Output make sure it says Paper Size and Letter is selected. Media Type should say Plain 1. If the invitations is on a heavier paper like card stock click the down arrow and select Covers 1 . If your paper is coated like matte finish photo paper select Coated 1. Now click ok. Do a test print and see if you get what you want. If not, let me know.--Deeva

When I try to print invitations on my HP 4680 they do not print the right size I set margins to 5.5 x 8.5 but it prints on 8.5x11.


Hi,

When your print or during the print preview, press the "setup" button.
Change the paper size to the desired size
like for example 8.5x11, 8.5x13, A4 size and envelope size.
Select also the landscape mode not the portrait mode.

Printing 5x7 card stock in HP 1510 injet all-in-one printer


You need to set up your printer preferences to accommodate the type and size of paper you wish to use, usually listed under printer/print or page set up.

Invariably, paper is loaded, butted to either left or right of the paper feed, but on the other side of the feed there should be a sliding stop which keeps your paper in place.

If feeding from the top feed, print side towards you, if printing from a tray at the bottom of the printer, print face down.

You can download a user manual from here once you've chosen your model printer:-

Faded printing on 5x7 size paper


Sure. One of the papers is probably clay based (Shiny) and one is rag based (rough and dull). Clay based produces the most vibrant inkjet images and rag based produces the best laser printer images. I bet the two papers are different in composition. I see this all the time.

Copier Only prints half the page


Sounds to me that the paper tray is set incorrectly. There is a dial on the back of the machine that needs to be set correctly once the paper tray guides are adjusted accordingly -particularly when running 8 1/2 x 11" (letter) size paper. It can be set to run either lengthwise, or laterally (portrait) make sure the dial is set to the proper setting on ALL trays. If the tray is set for lateral, for example, and the paper is installed lengthwise, the scanner only utilizes 8 1/2" in length rather than the full 11". Frequent jamming is also a common problem when making multiple copies, because the paper is not where the machine "expects" it to be. Also check that the LCD display reads the proper size / orientation after adjustment.

Hope this helps. Please rate solution :)

Paper size


Okay, go to your printer folder Start/Printers Right click on your printer (Officejet 6310) and click on Properties. You will see a button near the bottom called Printing Preferences. Here is where you choose your paper. You can make your choice here and choose to make it your default settings (click Apply to make the new paper your default to print your invitations...you will have to change back after). You may change the quality of print and paper type as well since the default setting won't provide the quality of print you desire. From here it's pretty straight forward. Feed your invitations into the paper tray as you would normal paper and try a test print for quality control. Once you've got the desired output, print the rest of your invitations.

How to load 5x7 photo paper into hp photosmart D7460 ??


Simply set the page layout option to select from printer. Place the cut & proper sized paper in the inlet tray, adjust the sliders so that they just rest lightly against the edge of the paper. Remember only one slider moves and the other one remains fixed to one edge. Click print preview. You might get a message saying paper orientation is not right...should I adjust the printer automatically, click yes and behold it will print in Portrait or landscape mode depending on the matter. If it warns that output does not fit on the media(paper) then select fit to page option.....sodeep

Print 5x7 invitations on my 950?


Change the size of the document on word to a standard sized document - such as 8-1/2 x 11. Then when you go to print the documents, set the printing preferences to print on 5x7 paper. That should do the trick.
