Labels stuck to transfer belt

I ran some "Laser Compatible" labels through my printer and some of the adhesive trim ended up on the transfer belt. Is there anything I can use to clean the surface? I have tried to peel off the labels, but it's leaving adhesive on the surface.

Re: Labels stuck to transfer belt

Acetone will work, but use sparingly as it will freeze the belt and render it useless.

How to print labels?

It is recommended that the bypass (paper) tray be used for labels.

Place the sheets into the bypass with the labels side down.

Be careful NOT to overload the paper tray.

You have to be careful to use labels that are rated for laser printers, Verify that your labels' adhesive material can tolerate fusing temperature of 200C (392F) for 0.1 second.

Last thing to check is that the sheets don't have any curling (of the labels or of the backing sheet) as this will cause jams in the machine.

Hp laserjet 4 plus label stuck and prints with smudge now

Where is the label stuck? If you are lucky and it is stuck on the toner cartridge's image drum, just replace the toner cartridge. Do not, I repeat, do not try to remove the label from the drum and continue to use the toner cartridge. The reason being that there will still be adhesive on the drum that will cause toner to stick to it and cause big bad defects on the printed page. Additionally, if you try to remove the adhesive with lighter fluid, rubbing alcohol, or other substance and a cloth/paper towel, the drum will be scratched and therefore damaged, causing defects in the printing anyway. Just save the trouble and replace the toner cartridge.

If the label is stuck elsewhere within the printer, be very careful about removing it, especially pay attention to whether any adhesive stays behind once the label is removed. Depending on where the label is, it might just be better to replace the labelled part.

It is highly recommended not to use labels inside laser printer precisely because of this problem. If you elect to do so, however, make sure that you use only laser labels. Inkjet and dot matrix (aka impact printer) labels are unacceptable. The reason being that laser printers generate about 350 Fahrenheit degrees (177 Celsius degrees) of heat which weakens the bond between the wax paper and the adhesive of the label. This causes the label to have a tendency to peel off in the fusing assembly and/or output rollers. Also the printer has a very "curvy" paper path and all that flexing of the paper tends to cause the label to want to leave the wax paper backing as well. All it takes is a loose edge of the label to find even the slightest surface to which to adhere and the deed is done: the label will leave the paper and become a part of your printer, giving you the headaches that you now endure. If you have a future need to print labels, I would suggest doing so with either a dot matrix or inkjet printer.

E260 will not print labels

This printer has capability to print on labels. Here are some tips when printing on labels:

· Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that the labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

· Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to Heavy.

· Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25-psi (172-kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

· Do not use labels with slick backing material.

· Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.

· Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

· Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.

· Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

· If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2-mm (0.06-in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive.

· Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

· Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual-sided labels are not supported.

The printer is not feeding the label until the perferated line. it only feeds about an inch and then stops and then feeds another inch. on our other zebra once the feed button is pushed the printer feeds...

Simple yeah. Printer calibration is the problem.

How to print adhisive labels using mfc 7340

Buy laser-specific adhesive labels. Those that say "Laser printer compatible". If you have an inkjet printer, print the labels with it, with the laser is more risky because of the temperature the paper needs to get in the printing process. If one label gets out of the support paper or the paper gets sticky inside the printer, it will cause a real mess.
Try inkjet first, or buy high-quality labels and print one full sheet at a time, not label by label.

UPC drum stuck

My co-worker managed to get the UPC drum back in by prodding the toner cartridge (which was too close and thus blocking the UPC drum) slightly to the side. After the UPC drum was back in she closed the printer, went through the menu that allows the toner cartridges to be moved for removal/replacement. She removed the toner cartridge, got the UPC drum out, removed the transfer belt, cleaned it and put everything back into place. My printer is now back in working order! And I owe her lunch, big time!
Should I ever have to do this again, I will remember to remove one toner cartridge first.

Labels got stuck in printer. Removed all labels but no go.

Unplug the power from the printer, leave it unplugged for a good 90 seconds, replug it in. If it still shows being jammed you may need to call Samsung for support / repair.

Avery Labels STUCK to drum, can't figure out how to get them off

you can clean it with a little alcohol or water, just take a good look at the PC Drum and Transfer unit, remove them from printer first, find labels and with wet cloth carefully wipe it away. but you should know that even if you remove labels there may still some marks on TBU and PC drum what leads to quality problems.

Blue color smears on every page

If you're still getting smudges, there must still be a label or part of a label either on one of the image drums or the transfer belt, i've found in the past it somethings gets stuck inside the unit on the cleaning blade. What i suggest is you run a print and open the front door at the paper travels along the transfer belt, look at all the image drums and see if you can see the smudge on one of them, if so the problem is caused by that cartridge if not it's in the transfer belt somewhere. You may need to try stopping the printer a few times and if the problem is in one of the cartridges, you will mst likely have to replace it, as with the transfer belt if you think that's causing the problem it's easier to remove it and rotate the belt manually.

Please note the image drums and the transfer belt are all light sensative

Magicolor 2300DL 17H fatal - labels stuck in printer

This happened to me last week. A label (or part of it) has adhered to the belt inside the printer. It's an easy fix. Turn off printer and open the side door. Remove waste toner bottle. Lift blue handle in direction of arrow to 11 o'clock position to release belt unit. Carefully remove OPC drum by pressing and pulling handle as shown by little graphic (try not to leave this drum in lighted area and don't touch green drum with fingers). Next, remove two chrome thumbscrews (may have to use slotted screwdriver) on either side of belt unit, then pull out belt unit and inspect to find stuck label. You can rotate belt easily. I removed stuck label and then cleaned glue residue with Elmer's Sticky Out ( a citrus product with no solvents) and a soft cloth. Clean thoroughly and replace belt unit, replaced thumbscrews, OPC drum, and finally, the Waste Toner bottle. Close door, turn on printer and test.
