I looked up the user guide at Dell's website and looked up printing cards.

  • The print side of the cards faces down.
  • The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.

  • Apparently you need to feed the card stock one page at a time into the printer on TOP of the paper exit try (The card stock will feed in from above the normal paper load try [remove paper from the paper tray] and once printed come back to the same spot.

    Paper jam on my Lexmark Z42

    So I assume the computer is coming up with this error, Do you know whether there is paper in the printer or not that is causing this error or does the printer just think there is?

    The outside panels should open up and you should see some rollers which may have paper stuck in them. Check for stuck paper or any other object and simply pull it out. Pulling paper out the way it went in won't wreck the printer.

    If there isn't any object, you can try resetting the printer by unplugging it and the plugging it back in.

    Let me know it neither of the above suggestions work or if you just need some more help or can provide more information on this.

    I suggest you go to the Avery WEB site and download the Word template for your Avery label. Use this template, enter your text and then print, don't forget to place the blank Avery in your printer.
    You can download the templates from this WEB site.

    My printer only prints the first page

    have you checked the manufacturer website for Firmware or software updates? i know you said you re-installed it but there's a chance if it's with the CD that came with the product, it may be out dated or buggy

    How do I Print Address Mailing Labels from Avery 300-Easy Peel White Mailing Labels, on Windows XP,CP?

    You'll need the actual Avery code for this, or at least the correct measurements.
    Open up Microsoft Word. Go to 'Tools' and find 'Letters and Mailings' in the list. Then off of that is 'Envelopes and Labels'. Click on that one and a box will pop up. If you click on 'Options'. From here you can find the correct label settings by the code which will be on the Avery pack. If you haven't got the code, you can scroll through the lists and highlight options to see the measurements but this will take you a while.
    Once you chosen your labels, click on ok. Now you can enter your address in the box and print a whole page of the same address or click on 'New Document' and that will give you a page set out correctly for that label sheet.
