Labels jammed in Laser Printer

Dummkopf here tried to re-insert 3 Avery label sheets into an HP laser printer (since I had put them in the paper drawer upside down the first time). There was a terrible noise and then half of the labels came out printed (in other words half the sheets lengthwise came out).

I look everywhere I could for the jammed labels, but couldn't find them. I assume that they are in the inner workings behind a panel.

How can I get to these things to extract them?

Well i hope you don't need to get a technician out to remove those labels for you. If you do then you better have the coffee and biscuits ready to keep him appeased!!

The most likely place for them to have come off the page is at the first place the paper bends much more than about 45 degrees. If not there, then any other bend of similar angle. After this you will need to be looking in the fuser unit (the unit that gets hot) and the heat softens the glue on the label and they peel off.

Download a service manual form here to help you get it apart without braking anything!

For future reference, please ensure that any labels you print are designed specifically for laser printers and the margin from the top of the page to the first label is as big as possible - preferably about 10mm or more.

How can i avoid label sheets getting stuck in phaser 8560


1. Make sure you are feeding the labels from the bypass tray, not from the cassette.-
2. Make sure the labels are for Laser printers, not Inkjet printers.
3. Do not try and re-use a label sheet that only was half printed on.
4. When you put the labels in the bypass tray, set the paper type to labels...this slows down the print process so they won't get jammed.

Problem printing labels


These labels are supposed to be for laser or inkjet . A inkjet basically sprays the ink to print. A laser deposits plastic powder and then uses heat to melt it or fuse it to the paper. To get a good inkjet print you need a softwaer paper, to get a good laser print you want a harder paper and a glue that can handle the heat. I had a quick look at customer complaints on that product and you are not alone. Either the printing is coming off (inkjet) or the label is coming off inside the printer.

One of the other problems with labels in lasers can also be how the paper is printed. The paper can be rolled around a few rollers and drums. This action can be pretty close to how you peel the labels off of the backer sheet. Add a bit of heat to make the glue loosen up a bit and you get your problem.

Setting to thicker paper should have helped but the best thing you could do is print it flat. Most laser printers have a back tray that is usually closed. When opened the tray lets the paper come out without having to go around rollers. If your model doesn't do that about the only thing I could suggest is to try to print the labels on a cold printer. So that would mean one page or so at a time with a wait for it to cool down. You could also try a differant brand or another avery type but you may end up with a label collection if they prove to have the same problem with your printer.

Mis-alignment during printing of labels sheets


Solution!! Use "HP premium Plus Photo Paper" for the paper type setting. Works great with Avery labels & card stock as well. (business cards had the same alignment problem)

Paper Jam


You may have left some debris in the printer, or there could be a piece of debris blocking one of the sensors. Try to reinspect printer and clean it out throuroughly. If it still isn't printing, try removing toner and replacing again. If neither of those work buy a used laser printer on craigslist and save yourself the trouble.
sorry if this isn't great news. service may be worth it, try a small computer store rather than a larger store.

Does it still print on plain paper? Check to see if you are missing one or more labels as they may have come off and onto a roller or other part. I've found that label sheets with any labels removed prior to printing are always prone to loosing labels in the process of traveling through the printer.

Printer Jam - when i put a sheet of Avery labels, printer jams


When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to www.avery.com and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.
