I had problems printing 4 X 6, and found out that I needed to go into the printer mode, and change the tray feed from "main tray" to photo tray. Try that one.

OK, to make this clearer, I had the same problem on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.
My Fix, combining several others:
1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.
Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list
Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.
If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.
When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!

Printing anything other than 8.5" x 11" I have found challenging but there is a way around it. When you are ready to print select Print and go to
"Properties" button beside the name of the Printer.
Select normal for your print quality,
Paper source select Main Tray,
in resizing options select the size you need. In this case you would make a custom or perhaps the Card Envelope 4" x 6"
Select "Scale to paper size"
under the Resolution button there is a box "Show preview before printing" I select that so that I can see for sure before printing that it is recognizing my special paper and not the usual 8.5 x 11 sheet.
If it all looks good and it should, START PRINTING
You have to do this everytime you want to print a special size paper. If you print a lot of this size of paper custom name it something easy like your name"Krissy card env" so you can find it quickly and remember easily the process you follow.

Even though the icon on the printer shows the envelopes entering the printer narrow side first, you have to set the printer up for, and feed the envelopes through, wide side first.

Flip up the printer's output tray to reveal the input tray below and remove any paper in the input tray. Insert up to five envelopes into the input tray, print-side down, and slide the width guide so it touches the edges of the envelopes but does not bend them.
Fold the output tray back down and flip out the extension piece at the end of the tray. Fold up the paper stop at the end of the output tray's extension to keep the envelopes from falling out of the output tray.
Click "File" at the top of the software program you are using to create the text to be printed on the envelopes. Click the "Properties" or "Setup" button in the window that opens, then click on the tab labeled "Paper/Features."
Click the "Type Is" pull-down menu and select "Envelopes." Select the "Size Is" drop-down menu and click on the size of the envelopes you have loaded in the input tray. If you do not find the correct size, click "Custom" and type the height and width in the window that opens, then click "Save."
