I had the same problem. Didn't find the answer. I removed the HP 1280 driver and installed HP 1220 Driver. It worked. It prints all the sizes perfectly. What is in name if we get the prints on A3 size. whether it is HP 1280 or HP 1220 :)

Have you tried changing the default paper size from the control panel?

Control Panel > Printer and Faxes > Right Click "Your Deskjet 1280" then Properties > Printer Preferences > "Change Paper Size

Hp 1280 vista software

You might have to Physically goto which ever program you are printing from and goto File and then Printer Options or Page Options and select the A3 Print that you want. If you wan to set the printer to A3 for ever you too can goto START, Control Pannel. Then Find and open PRINTERS , then right click on your printed listed there and goto PROPERTIES. From there you can navigate the tabs on top until you find the paper section of the printer and set the paper to whichever choice you want in this case A3... If you are still not able to get it from there try to download the latest software update form the Printer site itself. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution. Please Help rate me if I helped you out or not I am new but a very good tech.

Printer problem

From the Printers & Faxes window, check in the i9950 Printing Preferences, Page Setup tab, for the following settings:

Page Size and Printer Paper Size are both set for the same size (both A4 or both A3).
Printing Type is set for Normal-size Printing

The graphic on the left should now show A4 (or A3) and Normal-size Printing in the legend.

Once that is set, verify from the application you're printing from that these settings are not being changed by the application (Preferences button in the print dialog box).
