Printing with photo paper

HP Recommended
Dell Precision 5550
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I can't get the HP Premium Plus photo paper to print without jamming.

Is there a setting/way to use this photo paper with this printer?

Dell Precision 5550 appears to be a Dell workstation - not an HP printer.

 

In general, HP printers support different types of Media.

Make sure the Media type is supported >> open and check the printer category Product Information > Specifications

 

NOTENot all printers support / tolerate the "Premium Plus" photo paper.

 

What else?

When the paper is loaded into the printer, the Media type must be set / selected.

If the printer includes a text input display panel,

Right after the paper is loaded and the tray door is closed > "Modify" / change the paper type and size

and / or

The printer preferences must be adjusted to reflect the shortcut / settings for the current job.

 

General Example

 

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 / Tabs
  • 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
