CLJ8550n poor print quality and wrinkled paper

We have a CLJ8550n printer. When we print from the tray used for tabloid size paper it wrinkles the page. Is there something I can do to try to fix this before ordering a new tray?

The print quality is very poor. There smudges and streaks as well as white blotches where there should be color.

This is usually not caused by the paper tray. this problem is usually caused by the fuser assembly. check your paper path. dead cycle the printer, shut the printer down before the paper enters the fusing area, check for wrinkles. remove all paper, print again, check the output, wrinkles, replace the fuser.

How to print #10 envelopes on a Xerox 3610 printer?


Solution : Print on Envelopes You can print envelopes from the Bypass Tray only.
Guidelines for Printing Envelopes
  • Print quality depends on the quality and construction of the envelopes. Try another envelope brand if you do not get desired results.
  • Maintain constant temperatures and relative humidity.
  • Store unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid excess moisture and dryness which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling. Excessive moisture can cause the envelopes to seal before or during printing.
  • Remove air bubbles from the envelopes before loading them into the tray by setting a heavy book on top of them.
  • In the print driver software, select Envelope as the paper type.
  • Do not use padded envelopes. Use envelopes that lie flat on a surface.
  • Do not use envelopes with heat activated glue.
  • Do not use envelopes with press and seal flaps.
  • Use only paper envelopes.
  • Do not use envelopes with windows or metal clasps.
To Load Envelopes in the Bypass Tray:
  1. Open the Bypass Tray.

The printer trays accommodate most sizes and types of paper, transparencies, or other
specialty media. Follow these guidelines when loading paper and media in the trays:
- Envelopes, labels, and glossy paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) only.
- Transparencies and custom size paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) and Tray 2.
- Fan paper, transparencies, and labels prior to loading them in the tray.
- Use only paper envelopes. All envelopes should be printed single-sided only. Some
wrinkling and embossing may occur when printing envelopes.
- Do not overload the paper trays.
- Adjust the paper guides to fit the paper size.
- If excessive jams occur, use paper or other media from a new package.

Printer HL 5370 DW is wrinkling all envelopes. Is


If it's not wrinkling regular plain paper, then you need to tell the printer you're printing envelopes. Envelopes are thicker than letter paper. When you tell it to print, make sure you click on "Properties" and set the job for "Envelopes". Also, make sure the guides are set to fit the envelopes snugly.

Paper wrinkles when printing


You can try these following solutions:

If the paper does not completely eject, press the paper with folded side paper button, then open the printer cover and remove the paper. Also, check the Paper Size setting in your application or printer software.
If the paper is wrinkled when it comes out, it may be damp or too thin. Load a new stack then try to print again. You can also try to check the printer alignment and the printer setting.

My printer wrinkled the paper when it is out


Try using fresh paper from a new ****. If still wrinkles might be an issue with your fuser. The fuser is the part that heats the toner onto the paper and if the paper contains too much moisture content (from improper storage methods), this can cause wrinkling effect as well.

Try printing with different types of paper and from manual tray to isolate problem. If it occurs all the time, most likely bad paper or bad fuser.
