Ink smudge on envelope

I am printing on 6.50/3.50 envelopes and they have ink smudges on them. The manual tells me to use the paper thickness lever at the front of the printer but there is none on mine. I have a canon mx310.

The paper thickness lever is not on the front...it is on the floor of the "paper output tray" chamber. It is hard to see without directed light.

Refer to Loading Paper section of the Quick Start Guide....p 15 2 Prepare to load paper
(4) Adjust Paper Thickness Lever
(See diagram)

Or look at the "User's Guide on-screen manual" as directed by the Note on p. 17

I really had to search to find this lever while attempting to resolve my problem with a badly aligned printing head. I am going to have to buy a new printer. It definitely won't be a Canon due to the rip off cost of print cartridges.

Hope this is helpful.

Where do i put envelopes in a lexmark X6570


Loading envelopesYou can load up to 10 envelopes at a time.
Warning: Do not use envelopes that have metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.

1 Load envelopes in the center of the paper support with the stamp location in the upper left corner.
2 Make sure:
• The print side of the envelopes faces you.
• The envelopes are designed for use with inkjet printers.
• The paper guides rest against the edges of the envelopes.

Notes:
• Do not load envelopes with holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing.
• Do not use envelopes that have exposed flap adhesive.
• Envelopes require more drying time. Remove each envelope as it exits, and allow it to dry to avoid ink smudging.

HP Photosmart Premium c309a series smudging wedding invitation envelopes badly. I can print the invitations and everything else just fine. Any suggestions? Thank you.


when you go to print your envelope and click the print command - a window will open with the name of your printer and a box that says properties. click on properties. Change the type of envelope stock to match what you are printing on in the next window. If you are using photo paper envelope with a glossy finish, make sure that is the print media you have set for your printer. If not, the ink will just keep smudging. it's very important to match the print stock (matte, glossy, premium ect).

Check and change the paper type .May be the envelope you are using has different kind of paper so you need to select the particular paper type to fix this problem

Printing greetings cards and envelopes


At the moment it is printing both sides of Greetings cards, but this printer appears to be very sensitive with regards to placng card in the exact position in the paper tray.

Why it will not print envelopes without smudging I still don't know, so I shall just have to write address by hand after I place graphic on the envelope

This 5300 was a Christmas gift from my wife and if I could afford to change it I would. The performance is very dissapointing

Kindest Regards

PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.

Ink smudging


Run a cleaning sheet through the printer- absorbant papaer- blotting paper. If this machine has had a lot of service it may be your waste tank is filling up and leaking out - have you had a service warning yet?
