HP Office Jet 8710 will not print on cardstock

HP Recommended
HP Office Jet 8710
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Our HP 8710 printer will not print on cardstock. It used to but has stopped. I have tried the cardstock settings on both the printer, and from the print queue before I print. Nothing helps. I jet a paper jam notice every time.

If the printer knows about the card paper,

If the card paper is within the weight limitations allowed on the printer,

If you have not done so,

Consider:

Paper Jam Error

 

What else?

It is possible that the Media (kind of paper) setting was changed.

If you wish to do so, check...

 

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

 

Note:  This option is not applicable to printers that lack a printer display panel and might not be available on all printer models that do include a 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 your Paper Size is not in the Drop-down menu,

If the selection is available in the list:

Select Custom (likely the last selection in the list)

 

And / Or

Embedded Web Server (EWS)

 

 Note:  This option is not applicable to printers connected via a USB printer cable (no network connection).

 

 

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)

 

NOTE:  EWS is also available in HP Smart

 

Set the Preferences - Windows

 

NoteIgnore this section when not relevant – for example, when using Word > Mailings > Envelopes

 

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
