We neeed to manually set the size of the paper in order to print on abaove paper sizes.

Open the HP Solution Center and click on settings >> print settings >> printer settings.

Now select the paper type as plain paper and click OK.

Now click on custom settings and enter the size of the paper and give it a name and click OK.

Now close the solution center and reopen it again.

Now click on settings >> print settings >> printer settings.

Now check whether we have the name that we gave to the custom size previously. Select it and then click OK and then try to print.

How can I enlarge pages and print them across multiple sheets of paper on the hp photosmart c6280 all-in-one printer?

Use photoshop (or similar) to enlarge the photo to the size you want. Then cut it up in photoshop to fit the printers paper size.
Then print each individual part of the photo.
Is that what you wanted to achieve?

HP photosmart C6280 when i printed photo on plain paper the color came out is original color., but if i using same setup and printed on photopaper , the color came out not true...pls help this...

The process is different for photos than for plain paper.
It is likely that one of your colors are not printing, probably one of your `light' colors. You can perform a `nozzle check' by using the menu on your printer. This shows you the colors that are printing, and whether they are printing correctly.
If you are using refilled ink, that could easily be the issue.
Try performing the printhead cleaning, again in the menu on your printer. If that does not work, try replacing the ink tank for the faulty color.
If none of this works, it is likely that the ink delivery system is cracked, a common problem in these models.
In this case, replace the printer.

I am trying to print 4*6 pictures on c6280 from my Apple PC. No matter what settings I ask for it pulls the paper from the 8.5*11. How do I set it to print 4*6 pictures?

Hi, It senses the size of paper you put in the tray, that is if you have placed A4 paper, that is what it will use. Options are, use 6*4 paper or print 2 up on A4. To use 6*4 paper raise the paper tray and then pull out the photo tray. If you can't follow this, go to
