Customer Question
I tried to print...

I tried to print an envelop. That didn't work for me. I am trying to reverse that command on the printer and it won't reverse. I can't print now

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of your printer, and can you guesstimate how old it is?

Jet Pro 6978

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

The message is...paper size detected by printer does not match size detected by printer. it prints from the computer it doesn't make copies

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

A week. I tried to set it up to print an envelop

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

That's it. I only want to be able to make copies. It works fine from the computer to the printer. Just can't make regular copies. It will copy if you set it up as Photos but that is very slow

The issue is the copy settings that is all. here is now you change them

  1. From the Home screen on the printer control panel, touch Copy.

  2. Select Document, ID Card, or Photo.

  3. Swipe to the desired number of copies, or touch the keypad, and then input a number.

  4. Under Tray Selection, select the tray and paper size.

  5. Under 2-Sided, you can select 1- or 2-sided copying.

  6. Touch Touch to Preview, and then touch the preview to edit the image; from the Edit screen, you can crop, resize, and adjust the contrast of the copy.
