Just guessing, but check the printer setting page and see if there is reference to what paper you're using. If you can see if a "custom" or select a similar size but more generic. Any other setting that may include the blank or white tab, in other words play with it. I can only suppose that the defaults when setting up the printer provide an automatic reference to the HP line of products. If none of this works, be sure to check the pgms. as well to see that as well in MS Picture/Fax.
I kept my old printer around a few years in case of an emergency that I needed a printer and couldn't get one. Anyways, I've decided to get rid of it, since I have four extra cartridges that I never used but took out of the box, I wanted to try and use them. I have 1000+ pictures that I need to print, so that is what I decided to use it for.
I've been using some of my HP photo paper that has the tear-off tab, everything was working fine. Now I am out of that paper and I am using Kodak paper without the tab. My printer keeps printing a white tab (the same size as the tear-off tab) no matter what settings I put in. I've used both the with and without tab option and it still leaves a blank space.
Is there any way to prevent this? I am printing from the Windows Picture and Fax viewer.
