Re: How do I print with transparent paper?
Make sure you are using transparencies made for your type of printer. eg:...DO NOT use laser transparencies on an inkjet. and visa versa...
You dont say what kind of printer you have so I cant help too much. Let me know what type of printer you have....make ..model...etc...

If you tried to print on a transparency sheet for ink jet printers, in your laser printer, you could have damaged the heating rolls. The plastic could be molten on the roll and you won't be able to remove it without damaging the roll. As long as there is just a spec of plastic on the roll you will have paper jams. There should be transparency sheets for laser printers to, but always make sure you have those before using in a laser printer.
Try these settings.
Use this item to configures the fuser mode associated
with each media type.
Change the fuser mode only if you are experiencing
problems printing on certain types of media. After you
select a type of paper, you can select a fuser mode
that is available for that type. The available selections
might include some or all of the following modes:
NORMAL: Used for most types of paper.
HIGH 1: Used for rough paper.
LOW: Used for transparencies.
HIGH 2: Used for paper that has a special or rough
The default fuser mode is NORMAL for all print media
types except transparencies (LOW), and rough paper
Do not change the fuser mode for transparencies.
Failure to use the LOW setting while printing
transparencies can result in permanent damage to
the printer and fuser. Always select Transparencies
as the Type in the printer driver and set the tray type
at the printer control panel to TRANSPARENCY.
When selected, RESTORE MODES resets the fuser mode
for each media type back to its default setting.
Hope this helps

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
When you change the settings do you hot then 'OK' button to see that the astix is next to it ? When changing settings make sure that you see that astrix next to your changes if not you will return to it's original setting. I alreaded assumed you knew how to access the menu's Make sure you set these setting by"OK" some printers like "Xerox" will make you hit the "Select" key
Nice printer.. Hope this will give hints. Considering transparency papers, please try another batch of or a piece of transparency paper. Try to adjust also the graphics preferences (dark to light) aside from transparency paper selection. Have a nice day.
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.
