Hi,
According to you you can't print your document with your printer.
# I must say first this printer have ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) option.
# you can change some settings of the printer.
# go to the Printing preferences in Properties and change the page settings properly.
# turn off the both side printing because mac os don't support.
# printing quality & paper feed must be proper.

# and finaly feed the paper properly.


This settings may help you to print your document.

You'll need to go into your printer's preferences when you print from quickbooks by clicking "Properties" in the print dialog. Then search through your paper sizes to find one that is check sized. If you cannot find it, add another paper size that is 6? x 3.75?, which is the size of a check. You might want to cut out a few check-sized pieces of paper to test your settings/margins on, so you're not ruining checks.

I am using quickbooks 2005 and am trying to print full page checks. I am getting a 'paper mismatch' error and cannot print my checks.


Welcome to FixYa.

Paper mismatch errors occur because the product scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the product, the product reports a 'Paper Mismatch' error.

How do you load your check in the printer?

Keep me posted.

Hp j6480 printer wont print keeps sending a paper mismatch message


Paper mismatch errors occur because the product scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the product, the product reports a 'Paper Mismatch' error. The message saves paper and ink by preventing print jobs from accidentally printing on the wrong paper. For example, the print job might be for a 101.6 x 152.4 mm (4 x 6 inch) photo, but there is letter-size paper loaded in the product. The error message displays to make sure that ink is not wasted on the wrong paper type. try this out , disable the automatic paper type sensor.
  1. Open the Print dialog box.
    1. In Word 2003, click File , and then click Print
    2. In Word 2007, click the Office button (c01850900.gif ), and then click Print .
  2. Make sure that your product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then clickProperties .
  3. Click the Features or Paper/Quality tab.
  4. In the Paper type drop-down list, click Plain paper .
  5. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.
  6. Click OK again to print the current print job.

There is good reason to use the proper paper to print checks. If you do not, the machines at the bank may not read them correctly, they will not have watermark to prevent fraud and if they are not the correct weight, they will get clogged in the equipment at the bank processing center.

You can go to
Start
Control Panel
Printers
Right click on the printer in question
Printing Preferences
Paper/Quality
(Plain Paper) This is a pull down menu with all styles of paper. You can change to the paper that you are using and change other settings as well.

If you have any other questions let us know. 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.

Checks mismatch


You may need to change the settings on your printer to accept the checks through the paper input. Otherwise try the printer setting on your QB to have it print from the tray. Make sure it is set to print on 8 1/2 X 11 sized paper and not 3 X 8 or some strange size.
Let me know if 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

Word Settings for Printing Postcards


I found the fix!! Once you have your size settings typed into your page layout screen and applied to the document, click print. Once you select your printer, click on properties (or printer preferences) click on the features tab (the tab next to printing shortcuts) and go to the resizing options section. click on paper size bar and scroll down to custom. once in the screen, give the shortcut a name you'll recognize, type in your dimensions in the provided spaces click save. once you go back to the features screen, scroll back down to custom and select your shortcut that you just created and apply it to both the paper type and paper size. click ok and go back and click ok to print! Hope this makes sense..if not, go to HP's website and type in your product name, type paper mismatch in the keyword search bar and click ont the first link in the found section. It will give you the same step by step instructions....
