If you have Microsoft Word go to "Tools", "Letters and Mailings", then "Envelopes and Labels". Usually it will even show you, for your printer, exactly how and where to place you envelope. If you are in doubt, just a blank piece of paper to set it up. Be sure to mark the paper with an arrow so you know which side and which end when into the printer first.

Sounds like it needs to be set in your software program. For example, in Word, Tools> Envelopes and labels> Envelopes> Options> Feed From: (and select the envelope feeder in there). Sounds like its set for manual select or Default.
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.
Here's the link to the Lexmark website to download the Lexmark C543 User's Guide. http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/c54x/v14841473_en.pdf. There are two ways to print #10 envelopes, using the Multipurpose Feeder or the Manual Feeder. If you don't have the Mulitpurpose Feeder, you have to use the Manual Feeder and feed the envelopes one at a time. Scroll to Page 44 for MPF instructions or Page 46 for Manual Feeder instructions. Hope this helps.
I was so pissed off that so many on the web had this same problem that I spent many hours trying to get it to work. I am sure that this is not how it is designed to work but my envelopes got printed.First I went under File, Print, Properties to Page Set-up for envelope #10. I also ********** print colour images in black and white which someone else had suggested- although it might not be necessary. I selected quick print but normal should probably work too. I then closed out these two windows. Then under tools, I selected Letters and Mailing, then envelopes and labels, typed in the addresses, went under options and changed the feed from automatic to default tray, which automatically changes the feed method to the 4th one out of 6 which wasn't what I wanted but ignore it. Check off face up. Putting the envelope into the printer was bizarre- it has to be inserted very far into the printer until only 2-3 inches of the envelope stick above the horizontal surface of the printer. It must be inserted into the middle of the paper holder, until it is just 2-3 inches sticking up, and then slide it all the way over to the right where the printer indicates the envelope should be- nice and straight against the right margin. Do not use the movable paper holders that they suggest you swing over to the right to hold your envelope- or printing won't occur for some odd reason. Press O.K. on envelopes and labels and then press print. Good luck- it worked for me.
You have to either use the MP Feeder or an Envelope Feeder. When you send the job to the "Manual Envelope" option, it will beep and prompt before each envelope is printed. Same will happen when you use the "Manual Paper" option.
You will have a hard time printing 1000 envelopes. The printer will print a rated engine speeed for the first 6-10...After that, the narrow media sensor will force the printer to slow down and you will proabably get 5-6 envelopes printed per minute.
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.
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.
