It sounds like your regular paper area is your default (which is the standard setting). To change so that is prints from the photo paper tray, once you hit print, go into the (usually third) drop down menu (usually says Copies & Pages). Go into the summary menu, and you should be able to expand all of the various options.

Depending on which OS you have , either with the paper quality and type settings or the duplex settings, you should be able to select the tray the paper is in. Just click on the photo paper tray.

Another fast trick is to make sure that the paper is all the way into the tray so that the tray can "sense" it

Hope that helps........

If your automatic paper sensor is failed then you have to do repairing by taking it to a repairing center. if it is under warranty period then you can do servicing for free.

Make sure there is no paper pieces left inside the printer. Change the paper orientation. Reset the printer. If issue persist please post. Include your Printer's model number and the photo paper size/type that you are using.

    If the problem is not solved, unplug the device for a while, make sure its not in sunlight. let it be for a hour or two. If the same error comes up you have to take the printer in for service.



    If you have warranty, repairs should be free.

    also check that noting is obstructing the sensors, you can also attempt to clean them.

Hp c6180 won't print from 4x6 photo paper tray


If you put regular paper in the tray as it is asking does the printer use the regular paper to print the picture? If so, be sure the 4x6 photo paper tray (with photo paper) is pushed all the way in, and when you select print there should be an option (probably hidden in a submenu) to select the photo tray as the paper source. If you are printing from Adobe Acrobat, I have not found a reliable way to get the c6180 to use the photo paper tray. I hope this helps.

pull out the paper tray. depress the blue button located to the right of the photo paper insert slot and slide the entire top section of the paper tray forward until it latches into place. be sure to place your photo paper finish side down. the printer will automatically recognize the paper size and select it for you by default. i assure you this will solve your problem. heres a link to the manual. the illistrations you need are located in chapter 2 page 13 and 14. please leave a testimonial on my page to show appreciation. thanks.

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:

Printing from the photo tray


I have found that when you put the photo paper in to the photo tray you have to slide the photo paper in to the printer gently as far as it will go, then slide the side and rear guides to the photo paper. If you just put the photo paper in to photo tray without doing this, the printer will not take up the photo paper at all.
