Is this one of the ones that prints 12x12? I didn't know they made printers that did that. Now I want one!!

I have the HP Photosmart C6180, don't know if I can help you or not, I have not used all my features as in regards to taking pics straight from the chip, and I also lost my book back when I got it, but I have had it a year now, so depending on your question??????

No, it doesn't print 12x12, but I wish it did!

Ok, here is my question.

Say I start a print job of 20 pictures and it runs out of paper or ink half way through. So, I replace the paper or ink and it starts the print job all over again. It doesn't finish the rest of the print job, it starts back at the beginning, so I end up with 2 of the same pictures. I can't imagine this is normal. Does this happen to you or do I have a piece of crap?? I've only had it for 6 months but it's too late to return to the store. I wonder if HP will do anything if I call them.

I have 2 hp's and really love them. I have the D7460 and the 3210. But I must say I never print 20 at a time. So I don't know if this happens with my printers or not. I usually just print maybe 3 or 4 at a time.

That's what I thought it should do but for some reason it starts all over again. Really makes me mad. I think I have a defective printer.

Have you looked for software updates?? That would be a software issue and not a printer issue (although the 2 work hand in hand).

I have 2 HP's. If mine runs out of paper I have to hit the on/off button to resume where I left off. Is your's the same.

i have the 4280 and they're similar but the 6280 has a few more bells and whistles. i'll try and help if i can

on mine, it flashes if I run out of paper and I have to press a button that says "continue" and then "ok" once i get paper in.

if you continue to have this problem, I would go into my print cue and delete the rest of the print job and then start the print again from where you left off. HTH.

i just bought a 6280 last week. and iknow in the preference section, you can tell it how to select what order to print things. you may want to look there.

i also recommend calling the HP number or going to the site. they may have some tips there.

I have the HP C6280. I have never had that problem. Of course, I haven't had to change ink in the middle of a job, though. Paper yes. I've run out of paper and it'll let me know. I put the paper in, and it continues right where it left off. Sounds like you might have a glitch in your software? Maybe try to see if there's an update that can fix it?

The only "complaint" I have about the software is that in order to print pics I have to "add" each folder to the "gallery." I have gone through and manually added each folder so I could just print what I wanted when I needed, and still I have to "add folder." It's annoying.

Thanks everyone! I think I'm going to call HP tomorrow and see what they say. I know there is some problem, either with the printer or the computer because if I turn off the printer and turn it back on, the computer doesn't recognize it and I have to install it all over again. Talk about aggravation!

I have not had this problem with mine. Everytime I open Photo Smart Essentials it automatically finds any new pictures I have added to my hard drive and adds them to the Library. Are you using Essentials 2 or 3?

It sounds like the printer never finished the install process. Do not go to the online help. Just make the call. Your problem will get solved much quicker. I had some problems with my install and online couldn't help me. When I called the 800 number they were able to help me immediately by asking just a few questions. Also, for the printer to install correctly your USB ports must be USB 2.0, if they are USB 1.1 the install will not run properly.

Good luck,

Rhonda

I have no idea if I'm using Essentials 2 or 3...

My USB ports are definitely 2.0. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with install issues. I will make that call to HP tomorrow. Thanks!!!

No problem with the help. When you start Essentials it should tell you with it is 2 or 3.
