Printing from Nook HD+

I have the HP Epring app installed on my Nook HD+ (not rooted). It works well enough when priting documents and such, but there is a problem with printing jpg and png files. My printer is an HP C7280, and my Nook access it via my WiFi. When I try to prints either a jpg or a png file the Eprint app wants to default to the 4x6 photo tray, rather than the main tray. I have no use for 4x6 photos and therefor that tray is never loaded. Is there a way to have my Nook / Eprint print to the main tray? I have entered the IP address of my printer into my browser and have set the default to the main tray, but Eprint ignores that completely and keeps trying to print to the empty 4x6 tray.  If anyone has any suggestions I would indeed be grateful.

Re: Printing from Nook HD+

If you are using the HP ePrint app to print over wifi, you will need to set the paper size and try in the app itself.  I was successful in doing this with my Nook HD+.

When you select the print option, you should get a settings option (top-right corner).  Select settings and then press show more options and you should get what is shown in the image below.






Change the paper size to letter and it should print from the main tray.  Setting any of the settings in the printer's EWS (embedded web server) will only apply when printing from a PC.

My first screenshot was from my phone as I didn't have my hd+ with me.  Here is a screenshot of the settings from the actual HD+.
