You are correct that the paper won't print correctly on the wrong side.

 

You are also correct that the paper must be loaded correctly as described in the User Guide (Page 18).

Suggestion:  Load at least 5-8 sheets of photo paper. 

 

What else?

 

This printer handles photo paper up to 300 gsm - that is heavier than many printers support.

That said, the lighter photo paper should also work.

If setting the Media type to HP Photo Paper doesn't work, try "Other Photo Papers".

 

What else?

 

Right after the old paper is removed and the new paper is added, tell the printer about the paper in the tray.

 

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

 

Open Printer Tray,

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

Wait a couple of seconds…

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)

 

And / Or

Embedded Web Server (EWS)

 

If the printer is on the network,

If the EWS feature is supported on your printer,

Use the Embedded Web Server (EWS) to view / configure your printer.

NOTE:  Laser printer options in EWS are very different from those offered in InkJet Printers.

 

Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar

Tab Settings > Preferences > Tray and Paper Management

If applicable, check the Advanced section (at the bottom of the Tray and Paper Management menu)

Click Apply to save changes

 

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

 

Example

 EWS_9025_Preferences_Tray_and_Paper_Management_AllEWS_9025_Preferences_Tray_and_Paper_Management_All

 

 

NOTE:  EWS is also available in HP Smart

 

Set the Preferences - Windows

 

NOTE:  Ignore this section when not relevant (for example, creating envelopes or labels in Word)

 

  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
  • Scan Menu for HP Scan >>  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 as a new / different file name
  • Click OK to save the setup

You are welcome.

 

The sensor might not be sensitive enough - and the paper (at 200 gsm) is relatively light-weight.

When you try it again, load more paper (if you have it) - maybe 15 sheets?

 

Regardless, it worked this time - so "all good" for the time being.

 

Stay Safe!
