HP Deskjet 6500 and 6800 Series Printers - Printing Borderless Images

Printing guidelines
Use the printing guidelines below for best printing results.
  • For high-quality results, use a photo print cartridge in combination with the tri-color print cartridge.
  • For maximum fade resistance, use HP Premium Plus Photo Paper and install a photo print cartridge in the printer.
  • Use HP Everyday Photo Paper, semi-gloss to save money and ink when printing photos.
  • Verify that the photo paper that you are using is flat.
  • Do not exceed the in-tray capacity: up to 25 sheets.
Preparing to print
Before printing, follow the steps below:
  1. Verify that the printer is turned on.
  2. Remove the out tray, and then remove all of the paper from the In tray.
  3. Slide the paper-width guide all the way to the left, and then pull out the paper-length guide.
  4. Verify that the photo paper is flat.
  5. Place the photo paper in the In tray with the side to be printed on facing down. If are using a photo paper that has a tear-off tab, verify that the tab is pointing away from the printer.
  6. Slide the paper guides firmly against the paper.
  7. Replace the out tray.

Troubleshooting
Small margins in MS Word
When printing borderless images from MS Word, a small margin appears.
Solution
The paper size must be set to borderless in both the application (MS Word) and the printer driver. To set borderless printing in the application, follow the steps below.
  1. Click File, then Page Setup.
  2. In the Page Setup dialog box, click the Paper tab.
  3. Under Paper Size, select the appropriate borderless paper size.
To select borderless printing in the printer driver, follow the steps below.
  1. In the application, click File, and then click Print.
  2. In the Print dialog box, click Properties, and then click the Paper/Quality tab.
  3. Select the appropriate borderless paper size.
  note:
Under Paper Type, you cannot choose plain paper and print borderless. Choose photo or brochure paper instead.
