Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a Lexmark X4270 and I cannot get it to print envelopes. It sounds as though it is printing, but the envelope comes out blank.

    I have tried positioning it on both sides. I even put in a sheet of paper to test where it might be printing. It still is not printing even though the sound is there. Thanks for your comment

Are you positioning the envelope in the correct spot? Depending on how you requested it to be, the envelope should be either all the way to the left or all the way to the right.

Printer printing blank evelopes ....everything else prints ok. Lexmark printer Z705


Check your setup in your envelope printing software, make sure it's set for the size envelope you're using, it might be printing in the air next to the envelope.

LEXMARK X1240 WON'T PRINT ENVELOPES


I was so pissed off that so many on the web had this same problem that I spent many hours trying to get it to work. I am sure that this is not how it is designed to work but my envelopes got printed.First I went under File, Print, Properties to Page Set-up for envelope #10. I also ********** print colour images in black and white which someone else had suggested- although it might not be necessary. I selected quick print but normal should probably work too. I then closed out these two windows. Then under tools, I selected Letters and Mailing, then envelopes and labels, typed in the addresses, went under options and changed the feed from automatic to default tray, which automatically changes the feed method to the 4th one out of 6 which wasn't what I wanted but ignore it. Check off face up. Putting the envelope into the printer was bizarre- it has to be inserted very far into the printer until only 2-3 inches of the envelope stick above the horizontal surface of the printer. It must be inserted into the middle of the paper holder, until it is just 2-3 inches sticking up, and then slide it all the way over to the right where the printer indicates the envelope should be- nice and straight against the right margin. Do not use the movable paper holders that they suggest you swing over to the right to hold your envelope- or printing won't occur for some odd reason. Press O.K. on envelopes and labels and then press print. Good luck- it worked for me.

My lexmark will print page, business cards, labels, pics, etc. But it will not print envelopes. Looks, sounds, and acts like its printing. But when it spits out the envelope nothing is printed on it.


There must be an issue with the size of the envelope the printer is expecting. If you're using Microsoft Word, check under "Letters and Mailings" and then "Evevolopes and Labels" to check the size you have set the envelope to. Perhaps its also a setting in File and Page Setup or in the printers own settings under Control Panel and Printers. Sorry for not being of more help but if its not jamming or giving an error then its probably just set to the wrong envelope size.

Won't print envelopes in black


First you need to change the settings in the software you are trying to print the envelope. Open the program (for example MS Word), go to the option from which you print envelopes and labels. Set the font color to black, not "automatic", and in Word, click "default", which sets the color as black rather than allowing the printer or its software to select the wrong color. Then try to print on the envelope and let us know if you are able to print the envelope in black only.

How do you print No. 10 envelopes?


If you have Microsoft Word go to "Tools", "Letters and Mailings", then "Envelopes and Labels". Usually it will even show you, for your printer, exactly how and where to place you envelope. If you are in doubt, just a blank piece of paper to set it up. Be sure to mark the paper with an arrow so you know which side and which end when into the printer first.

Letter size envelope does not fit into the paper holding tray


Hi cmwww920,

Usually letter envelopes are insert long-way into your printer. I recommend using the Microsoft Word envelope wizard to print Sender and/or Recipient addresses on envelopes. Here's how it works:

1) Launch Microsoft Word.
2) Click Tools > Letters and Mailings > Envelopes and Labels...
3) Type in what you want to see on the envelope.
4) The default feed direction is shown in the lower right corner of the dialog box. To change it, click Options and select the Printing Options tab. Adjust the settings as you please.
5) Click OK to exit the Options Dialog Box
6) Click Print (in the upper right corner of the "Envelopes and Labels" dialog box.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H
