Thank You! I just purchased this printer (Officejet 6500A) and could not print due to a paper size/type error. I downloaded the new firmware and it now works!! Plus the printer now shows up as a wirless device which it would not do before the fix! THANK YOU!

To make mailing labels fit templates (e.g. Avery) on HP officejet 6500 from Windows XP, you must print "Borderless".
Click: File > Print > Properties, then use the Features tab and click on the Borderless box under "Paper sizes".
This may solve some other problems too.

Tried using a link you posted to fix my "paper mismatch" problem, but it wasn't recognized, I see it's old - is there a new link? This is exactly the same problem I'm having.
