My new HP8020 will not print on non-standard size paper or cards. Settings in both the printer itself and the software (WORD) are set to 5 x 7 for announcements. Printer functions fine when set to 8.5 x 11 and the desired document will print on standard paper. When set to 5 x 7, printer stops and issues error message that the paper size detected is not what is set in the printer. The message claims that the paper size is set to 8.5 x 11 even though it is NOT.
I have updated to the latest firmware for this printer, and it did nothing to solve the problem.
Basically, if loaded with anything but standard size paper, the printer reports that the paper is the wrong size and that it is presently set to standard size (it is not).
Did ALL of this. The printer settings are correct, but the printer stops after taking the 5 x 7 out of the tray and displays the incorrect paper size message. As I said in my post, software and printer settings are for 5 x 7, but printer stops are displays the message anyway. Firmware is the latest.
I worked for HP as a site services tech for several years, so I am not stupid, nor would I post a question before checking all of the normal solutions.
The printer accepts paper size settings after load, but does not function accordingly. Simple as that.
Please do not insult my intelligence again. Do you need a video to believe what I am claiming?
