Question about Dell Inkjet 720 Printer

Dell 720 Printer not printing envelopes.

I only use Word Perfect. The printer was working fine then one day it wouldn't print a #10 envelope, the only type I use. I un-installed and re-installed the software but it still won't print an envelope. It prints regular pages from emails without any problem and documents I tpye on Word Perfect. I don't know what to do? Any help would be appriciated. Thanks, Chuck

Re: Dell 720 Printer not printing envelopes.

I got the printer to print envelopes again. I completely uninstalled the printer, then reinstalled it by simply pluging the USB connection in. After I had first uninstalled it after the envelope problem started I had been using the 720 printer CD to reinstall it, and it still wouldn't print envelopes. I looked for and found the printer installition instructions and saw that I didn't need the CD to install it. (It was causing a software conflict). The Dell 720 Printer came with my Dell Dimension E310 PC new and the printer software was already on the hard drive. All I had to do was plug in the USB cable, and the printer was up and running like new again. Don't forget, if you don't want Dell to monitor your printer use, DO NOT check the box to allow that when it comes up during installation, other wise you'll get that icon showing up. Hope this helps. Chuck

I use a Dell 3110 cn printer. There were black splotches whenever I printed envelopes.I had a serviceman look at it to no avail so I changed the black toner cartridge. I am now getting blue splotches. ...

when you print envelopes you have to choose the envelopes in the printer settings then only machine knows that envelope is printing. when you don't select envelope in printer settings when you sent a print, the printer knows the a normal paper is coming through. the difference is that the envelope is a bit thick the normal paper. when envelope is selected in printer properties then the printer adjusts its settings to print on envelopes.

When i print envelope the return address gets cut off

There are some parameters that must be correct before an envelope will print properly. The M/P tray on the KM-3035 should be configured for the proper envelope size, probably COMMERCIAL 10, (but could be another size...need to measure the envelope) and type should be set to ENVELOPE. When printing from the application,i.e. Word or Word Perfect, be sure to select the proper printer and configure the Print Set-up, print direction, size, etc...You will have these options by clicking file and then print from the application print menu.

Printing Envelopes

Be sure you have set the PRNIT PREFFERENCES on your program that you are using to print the envelope to accept a #10 envelope and not 8.5x11 paper, you ALSO must set the PRINTER PREFERNECE to MANUAL FEED and not automatic so it won't look to the paper tray.
