I would rather suggest to take a print in normal A4 size plain paper and see what you get. Please revert backSuspected 1) paper scanner faulty not able to judge paper.
Good day, Regarding the error message that your getting, that means the paper where you want to print that document is not supported by the printer. Usually you'll the see supported paper size if you click the print option or print setup for your printer. The only way to resolve this is to use the appropriate size of paper like.
You can also try this steps to change size for the documents you want to print
>Open the File menu and click Print. >Click the Settings tab >Click on Paper Size. A list of paper sizes will appear >Select the size you want. >If none of the selections are suitable, select Custom. A box will appear
inviting you to set your own measurements. Enter the width and length
that you want. >Click OK.
These are the usual paper size use. It's 8 1/2 by 11 inches and the other one that you could use in most printers is 8 1/2 by 14. The first one is known as Letter size, the other one is known as Legal size. Hope this information help in resolving your issue. Have a great day.
Ten flashes:The Cassette is not installed properly/Cannot perform duplex printing
When loading from the Cassette, install the Cassette properly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
When performing automatic duplex printing, the size of paper may not
be compatible with automatic duplex printing. The sizes of media
suitable for auto duplex printing are A3, Regal, 11" x 17" (Tabloid),
B4, A4, Letter, 10" x 12", 8" x 10", B5, and A5". Make sure that the
size of the paper loaded in the printer is correct. Pressing the
RESUME/CANCEL button will eject the paper and restart printing from the
front side of the next paper. The reverse side of the ejected sheet will
not be printed.
I got around this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print.
The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11.
I hope this helps.
On the machines control panel set to sheet fed (pressing the left button will change from Sheet, roll and roll with cut). In the print settings select your paper profile. On the page setup choose sheet. In the pull down menu you should only have basic paper sizes, no custom size. choose 20x30 and try again.
Your printer is set to default to the Main Paper Feeder, which is probably set for letter size paper. You must tell it to feed cards. On your Windows Desktop, left click mouse on START. left click on CONTROL PANEL, and left click on the PRINTERS icon. On the PRINTERS screen, RIGHT CLICK on your Dell printer icon. On the drop down menu, left click on PRINTING PREFERENCES. On the PRINTING PREFERENCES window, left click on the PAPER/QUALITY tab. Under TRAY SELECTION, choose the PAPER SOURCE where you want your business cards to feed from. Left click on APPLY button. Next, left click on the ADVANCED button. On the ADVANCED OPTIONS window, use the drop-down box next to PAPER SIZE to choose the paper size you want to feed. Press OK button. The PRINTING PREFERENCES window will now reappear. Left click APPLY, then OK buttons. After you have printed your cards, be sure to restore the printer defaults back to their original state, or the printer may jam because it must be programmed for the paper size being used. If you reload letter paper without resetting the paper size, the printer will think there is still card sized paper in the tray, and it will issue a jam or error code until the paper size is set properly.
Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the
bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in
one direction only (left to right).
Continue doing this until it looks clean.
Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
Press the power button to turn the printer off.
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the
paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the
paper from the front of the printer.
Close the front cover.
Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
Resend your document to print.
The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load
it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top
edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
The printer is on a flat, level surface.
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending
on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100
sheets of paper.
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper
feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against
the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is
against the side of the envelopes.
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.
