Question about Xerox Phaser 8400 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Envelope printing When I put my #10 envelope in the manual feed tray on my Phaser 8400 printer, it doesn't detect the envelope. The paper handling setup gives me two options to select. 1 - index card and 2 custom size. Do you think that it is the tray's sensor not recognizing the envelope?

The manual bypass tray on the Phaser 8400 can be set only when you have paper in the tray.

The envelope will read in the set up when you have it in the tray.

I can't get anything to print from tray 1, the manual feed. I'm trying to print envelopes and they keep printing on 8.5x11 paper from tray 2. If I put envelopes in tray 2 it won't print


Have you already tried this? After you click print and select your printer, click properites and select your paper from 8.5x11 to Envelope.

How to load evelopes HL 2140


Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2
When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.


Open the back cover

Open the manual feed slot cover.

Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.

• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
• Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
• Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
• If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.

How do you print an envelope to copier from computer


Install the print driver, from the app you are printing from select your copier and then Properties, under the Paper tab you can select your paper type and tray. Only use the right side manual feed tray for envelopes. You may also need to set paper type ENVELOPE COM-10 in the copier. Extend the manual feed tray fully and set the guides or the copier will not read the correct size.

Address envelopes correctly


I'm running Vista and I thought there MUST be a way to print envelopes! So, this is how I figured out how to print envelopes perfectly! No doubt, this would be how the manual would instruct, but it's apparent that none of us are able to locate our printed copies, right? Guilty as charged!

Slide paper tray out; remove paper you have loaded in your tray. Set envelope in tray (face down, with top of envelope flush left) and adjust both side bars (designated as "1" in paper tray diagram - visible when all paper is removed from paper tray) so that they are flush against envelope. Slide back bar (designated as "2" in paper tray diagram - visible when all paper is removed from paper tray) so that it is flush with edge of envelope. Click print.

Believe defaults are set to #10 envelope. Envelope options - check / click on the following: face up, clockwise rotation and "Feed from" Auto Select. Click on / highlight the 5th envelope depicted in the top row of envelope examples.

Envolpe feed problem


I would first off try cleaning the feed roll in that tray well. That really sounds like slipping.
Go through all your programs and make sure that the driver machine and program you are running has the envelope settings the same.
Be sure they all match. Example. Make sure all the programs you are running through, have the settings for # 10 envelope, consistancy is needed for running envelopes. They are problematic.

Solution --> Phaser 4400 Printer: Printing envelopes

Printing EnvelopesEnvelopes can be printed from the optional envelope feeder, the Multi-Purpose Tray, or Tray 1, 2, or 3.
Guidelines for envelope printing
  • Use only paper envelopes.
  • Do not print on the back of the envelope.
  • Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces.
  • Keep unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid the effects of moisture and dryness, which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling.
  • Envelopes may wrinkle depending on weight and stiffness of the envelope.

Many applications include a tool for creating an envelope document. For example, Microsoft Word includes an Envelopes and Labels feature in the Tools menu. Be sure to:
  • Select faceup.
  • Clear Clockwise Rotation.
  • Select the feed method with the image centered and the stamp on the envelope to the upper left.

caution_image88x30.gif Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces; they can damage the printer. Damage caused by using unsupported envelopes might not be covered by your printer's warranty.
note_image33x30.gif Note: The heat from the printing process can melt certain types of envelope glue. If the envelope flap sticks shut after printing the test print, tuck the flaps inside the envelopes when printing the remaining envelopes. Printing envelopes from the envelope feeder
  1. Insert the envelopes into the envelope feeder. For more information, refer to the Trays section of the Trays and Paper Guide on the Interactive Documentation CD-ROM.
    • Place the side to be printed faceup.
    • The top of the envelopes should be toward the left of the printer.
