The printer is not likely defective.

 

Product Specifications for the HP ENVY Photo 6234 All-in-One Printer (K7S21B)

See the section on Paper Handling

 

Many printers with a little photo tray only support the smaller paper in that tray.

 

Load your 13x18 cm paper into the main paper tray

Remember to change the print settings on the printer display panel and within your print software.

 

Examples...

 

Check / Adjust / Retain the Paper at the Printer Display Panel

 

Open Printer Tray,

If you have not yet done so, add desired paper type

Close Tray

IF applicable for your printer:

Look for a message on the Printer Control / Display Panel,

Click Modify (wording varies), set the paper size and type, Click OK

 

NOTE:  If the size of the Paper Size is not in the Drop-down menu, Select Custom (likely the last selection in the list)

 

 

Set the Preferences - Windows

 

  1. Check / enable the printer as the “Default Printer”

 

Settings > Devices > Printers and scanners

UNCHECK (clear box) Let Windows manage my default printer

Select (Left-Click) your printer from the list of printers > Manage > Set as Default

 

 

  1. Select and adjust settings in each category for the Media (kind of paper), source (tray), and paper size.

 

Settings > Devices > Printers and scanners

Left-Click on (your) Printer > Manage > Printing Preferences

 

Next

Tab Printing Shortcuts > Click / Highlight your preferred shortcut > Click Apply > Click OK to exit

 

NOTE - Make changes to a Shortcut

  • Select a shortcut and adjust the settings for paper, source (tray), other settings
  • If there is a More > section, check / adjust settings in the sub-sections > Click OK to save sub-menu changes
  • If supported, save the edited shortcut or use “Save As” or “Create Custom Shortcut” to save under a new name
  • Click OK to save the setup

You are welcome.

 

You are not the first one.  Sometimes the User Guide or Specs clarify, sometimes not.

People tend to think, "Yeah!  Little Paper!  Photo Tray".

Perfectly normal.  Smiling.

 

Stay Safe.
