Photosmart C5280 Error message "Paper size or type is incorrect. Press OK to cancel job".

[ Edited ]

I have a Photosmart C5280 that has recently been giving me a message "Paper size or type is incorrect.  Press OK to cancel job".  The os is Windows XP.  I've tried uninstalilng & reinstalling, get same message.  It doesn't matter what I'm printing or what size...I get the same message.  I didn't change any settings (that I know of) that would cause it to do this.  Worked fine for several years, now this message.  I can get it to print if I select "Fast Economical Printing".  But if I leave it as "General, Everyday Printing" I get the message above.

The default paper size settings might have been changed for the General Everyday Settings. Try the document I linked below. It might be able to help you resolve the issue.
