SOURCE: Envelope printing
Got a 3100CN and had the same problem but found that a) Changing paper size from the web doesn't work but b) Go to the printer control panel on the printer and use the menu to set the paper size for the MPF tray for FREE. Now your application under windows will overide the whatever the printer thinks and will print. Envelope via Word all work without problem. Suggestion . Configure two printers one B&W using tray one and one colour using MPF and you can now quickly select whether to use colour or b&w. Regards John N - N2UYI/G7LTQ

I had the same problem with my 7260 and I finally changed the paper type from automatic to plain paper. Go to either Properties or Preferences in your printer set up window. Somehow this turns off some sort of sensor. It might work for you, too. To the person who is using the Hallmark program, that is where I first encountered the problem, I then tried to print an envelope from Word and the same error message came up. I found this solution online from someone using a three in one printer/fax/copier so I tried it and it worked for me, too! I hope this helps......

After spending way too long messing around with this on my bizhub 250 here's what finally allowed me to print:
I simply changed the bypass tray setting from "envelope" to "normal". I kept the custom size the same (9 1/2 X 4 1/8) and it started to print.
Doesn't make sense, but you can give it try.

SOURCE: Printing envelopes on HL4040CN
I just bought a HL-4040CN and all my envelopes wrinkled, regardless of the size, paper thickness or software settings (thin envelope, thick envelope, etc.). Here's how I solved the problem....Open the rear panel and you'll notice a small gray lever on each side, which is probably pointing to "A" on the scale (A, B, Envelope). Move both levers to "Envelope" and close the back panel. The troubleshooting manual says the levers should be moved back to "A" after printing the envelopes, but I left them in the Envelope position and can't see any difference when printing regular or test pages or envelopes, except the envelopes are no longer wrinkled. I called Brother and asked them if there was any reason why the levers can't stay in the Envelope position, and they told me they could be left there if it wasn't negatively affecting other documents. Now, I have a great printer that prints everything without any problems. Hope this helps.
