Printer error: paper mismatch

I'm getting a message that there is a paper mismatch when I print to the 6500 all-in-one.  I was printing successfully, then got the message and can't print anything. What do I need to do?

 I had the same problem AFTER I had printed some custom sizes ( 4 x 6 cards, etc.) Aligning the printer head worked in getting back to normal letter sized printing. Thanks

Re: Printer error: paper mismatch -

None of the recommended procedures worked for me.  I get the error just when printing envelopes, normal paper prints fine.  Very frustrating as I've never had issues with my printer until recently - must have been an update "feature".

Re: Printer error: paper mismatch -

After preparing your envelope size (moving the left side slide to the edge of the envelope) use the "align printhead" feature of your printer tools.   You may have to do that again after you return to standard sized paper.

Good luck!

Re: Printer error: paper mismatch -

Nope:

I follow all your steps and still I have missmatch, after updating drivers, etc.....not only that but, If I am able to print something is out of scale......so, it literally, useless.

it may be the problem of software compatibility, because, when I used CAD was bang on and in perfect scale, but then, in certain desaing softwares, that convert to PDF file using size custom templates doesn't work.

I believe is a software compatibility issue.
