This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issues.

    how do you resett the IP? My printer is connected to two computers. The USB cable is connected to one computer and the other cables to another computer. I also am using a wireless router. It was working fine this way until I got a bad virus. I had the virus removed but, now this printing issue is happening.

Hp officejet 7000 won't print 6.5 x 10 paper size


Officejet 8620 printed about 400 for me in 16 months then stopped. A few weeks prior to the error msg. that the paper in the tray did not match my document settings another message said it did not recognize any paper in tray including letter size despite there being about 100 sheets. I c alled HP two different days, tried documents on a brand new computer, created a new document. Took two hours total and $20 to be told the printer did not support this paper size. I called them prior to purchase and told them my needs and was told it would accommodate the size. My local techie and I both think the sensors have gone bad in under 2 years as I had been able to print my cards with no issue about 400 times. I called Epson three different times and each tech support person says Epsons can accommodate this.

Hp officejet 6500A Plus error message paper size is incorrect. Cannot get anything to print!


On your PC, what is the default setting for this printer. Check in the printer and accessories of Windows.
The paper size might be defaulted to A4 rather than Letter. That mismatch would cause the printer to
error out every time.

Hp[ officejet 6500. 1: how do i print dupex ??


I'm afraid your printer is not capable of duplexing automatically, so its a case of reinserting already printed sides the other way up.
secondly the font size is set by the software you print from.

My HP Officejet 6500 Wireless just started printing a blank page and bringing up the error message "Paper Mismatch' - been using this for over a year with no probloems


1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. 2. Press and hold the # key and the number 6 and plug the printer back in all at the same time. 3. Release the keys once the printer is already turned on.
If the printer takes the paper but only crumples it. Do the Reset for the 2nd time.

Cannot print on regular letter size paper on my HP Officejet 6500A Plus printer. Gives me an error message saying Paper Size Mismatch, but it is the right paper for the print job.


I had same problem. Try this: When you go to print, change your ink quality to "draft". For some reason, I was able to print after trying everything. Hope this works for you!
