Load other types of paper
The following table provides guidelines for loading certain types of paper. For best
results, adjust the paper settings each time you change paper sizes or paper types. For
information on changing paper settings, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help.
Not all paper sizes and paper types are available with all the functions on the
HP all-in-one. Some paper sizes and paper types can only be used if you are
starting a print job from the Print dialog box in a software application. They are
not available for copying, faxing, or printing photos from a memory card or digital
camera. Papers that are only available for printing from a software application
are indicated as such, below.

HP Premium Paper: Locate the gray arrow on the nonprinting side
of the paper, and then slide the paper into the input tray with the
arrow side facing up.
HP Premium Inkjet Transparency Film: Insert the film so that the
white transparency strip (with arrows and the HP logo) is on top and
is going into the input tray first.
The HP all-in-one might not automatically detect
transparency film if it is loaded incorrectly, or if you use
transparency film other than HP transparency film. For best
results, set the paper type to transparency film before printing
or copying onto transparency film.
HP Iron-On Transfers: Flatten the transfer sheet completely before
using it; do not load curled sheets. (To prevent curling, keep transfer
sheets sealed in the original package until you are ready to use
them.) Locate the blue stripe on the nonprinting side of the transfer
paper and then manually feed one sheet at a time into the input tray
with the blue stripe facing up.
