A common cause of this issue is having left a previous job's "preferences" / Shortcut / Preset that included Media type photo paper.

 

Regardless, check / adjust the paper settings to ensure the printer knows what size and type of paper to expect.

 

 User Guide

Page 18

 

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)

 

 and, Example for Windows:

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

 

 

and

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

 

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
