Hi Colinp5322,


I'm guessing you are printing from you computer.

Would like you to follow the step below.


  • Return to the photo you were trying to print when the issue occurred.
  • Click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  • Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on the software program, the button might be Properties , Options , Printer Setup , Printer , or Preferences .
  • Click the tab that provides paper type and size settings. The tab might be Features or Paper/Quality .
  • From the Size is drop-down list, select the paper size that matches your needs.
  • From the Source is drop-down list, select  Tray if it is not already selected.
  • From the Type is drop-down list, select the paper type that matches the paper in the tray.
  • Click OK , and then click OK again to print the photo.
Let us know if this helped.
