SOURCE: ink smudges off envelope

You will need to select in the drive that the media type you are putting in is envelopes this will adjust the printer fusing section to increase the heat.

Also you must select to go through tray one when doing this open the back door and the printed envelope will come out of the back and should be fine. If not try a lesser grade of envelope if still the same problem then the fuser unit is slipping and will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J

SOURCE: envelopes smudge

I have been informed that these fusers have a seperate heating element in the middle of the heat roller for envelopes to save energy and it's temperature is not sensed by the thermistor.If I trick the printer (with paper path tests) into printing envvelopes while thinking that it is letter the fusing is ok.

SOURCE: How do I install the envelope feeder tray on the

As long as you have the correct envelope feeder then it just locks into place on the front of the printer. Simply open the tray 1 feed door (the one with the model number 4050 on it) and your envelope feeder just "locks" in just above the open tray. If you look at the printer you will see a small square connector block. Now look at the envelope feeder and you will see where the 2 meet together. Then match up the 2 and "lock" it in place.

Hi,

Try to print envelope through Microsoft Word

Steps:-

1) Click Tools , click Letters and Mailings and then click Envelopes and Labels .
2) Type the Delivery and Return address information.
3) Click Options .
4) On the Envelope Options tab, set the following options:-

  • Envelope size : set to match the loaded envelopes.
  • US only : if desired, select the Delivery point barcode to make it easier for mail sorting machinery to correctly route the envelope.
  • Return address : for Size 10 envelopes only, set the Return Address position .8 inch in the From left section.
5) Select the Printing Options tab and verify that the following settings are selected:
  • Select the Feed Method option that shows the envelope on the far right side with the short edge first.
  • Select Face down .
  • Examine the selected feed method image and verify that the envelope flap is on the left side of the envelope. If it is on the right, select or deselect Clockwise rotation.
6) Click OK and then click Print .

As envelop can not feed correctly every time, it depends on the weight, flap design, paper type and other factors & cause jam, To prevent those you can do.
  • Print envelopes at a higher quality setting so envelope is pulled through the unit more slowly. e.g:- Switch fast to slow mode or slow to best mode.
  • Tuck the flap inside the envelope before loading it into the printer.

Have a nice day...don't forget to rate the solution.

HP Laserjet 4200 with optional Envelope Feeder will not automatically pull #10 envelopes from Envelope Feeder?


Use a damp lint free cloth and clean the feeder rollers.
Print out a configuration page to make sure that the printer recognizes that the feeder is installed.
Usually the envelope feeder problems stem from age and/or dirty rollers.
Make sure that your software app sees that the feeder is attached.

In the paper-handling menu set the envelope feeder size to the size of your envelope and the envelope feeder type to *any type.

Then ensure you are printing envelopes from your application.

My printer willnot print envelopes.It states paper size or type is incorrect. On all sizes.


Some printers have an extra feeder under a door on the front or side which allows you to insert an envelope. These types usually will not rcognize an envelope when inserted into the sheet feeders.

If you are using Microsoft Word, you may be able to do it from the "Tools"/"Envelopes & Labels" tab, but you more likely need to find the envelope feeder on your printer, if it exists.

Good luck !!

Cannot print odd-sized envelope with 4250 LJ


I got to HP tech support, and they tell me that the envelope feeder is intended only for a few standard envelope sizes. If we're trying to use a different sized envelope, as in this case, it must be fed manually, and the feeder bin will not work. So that answers that. Thanks for the help, though.

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.

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.

Paper / Envelope feed


Envelopes Follow the steps below to load envelopes into this product. Lower the output tray and slide out the extension. Move the feeder guard towards you. While holding down its locking tab, slide the left edge guide so that the distance between the two edge guides is slightly wider than the width of your envelopes. Load envelopes short edge first with the flap side down, as shown in the illustration. Use the line on the feeder guard as the indicator when loading envelope. The right edge of envelope is aligned with the line on the feeder guard. Set the feeder guard back. Note: * The folding quality and thickness of envelopes vary widely. If the total thickness of the stack of envelopes exceeds 10 mm, press each envelope in the stack flat before loading. If print quality declines when a stack of envelopes is loaded, load one envelope at a time. * Do not use envelopes that are curled or folded. * Flatten the envelope flaps before loading. * Avoid using envelopes that are too thin as they may curl during printing.
