Question about Lexmark C510 Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have a Lexmark C510, how do I print a business envelope?

I put the envelope in the paper tray, typed the address and hit print. The envelope will go through part way then jam in the back.

You can load up to 10 envelopes in the standard tray. Try a sample of any envelopes you are
considering using with the printer before buying large quantities. See Loading envelopes in the
standard tray
for instructions on loading envelopes.
When printing on envelopes:
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed
for use in laser printers.
Set the Paper Source in the Paper Menu based on the source you are using, set the Paper
Type to Envelope, and select the correct envelope size from the operator panel, the printer
driver, or from MarkVision Professional.
For best performance, use envelopes made from 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) paper. You can use up
to 105 g/m2 (28 lb bond) weight for the 250-sheet standard tray or 105 g/m2 (28 lb bond)
weight for envelopes as long as the cotton content is 25% or less. Envelopes with 100%
cotton content must not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight.
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:
Have excessive curl or twist.
Are stuck together or damaged in any way.
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts or embossing.
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
Have an interlocking design
Have postage stamps attached
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
Have nicked edges or bent corners
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 170°C (338°F) without sealing, excessive
curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If you have any doubts about the
envelopes you are considering using, check with the envelope supplier.
Adjust the width guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
Load only one size of envelope at a time in the tray. Envelopes may only be loaded in the
standard tray. Load them with the flap down and the flap to the left of the tray.
A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the
envelopes.

Loading envelopes in the standard tray
The recommended stack height is 10 envelopes; however, in normal environments as many as 15
envelopes may be loaded. In high temperature or humidity environments, only seven envelopes
should be loaded.
1 Pull the standard tray completely out.
2 Squeeze the length guide tabs together as shown in step 2 on page 42. Slide the guide to
the correct position for the size of envelope you are loading.
3 Squeeze the width guide tabs as shown in step 3 on page 42. Slide the width guide to the
correct position for the size of envelope you are loading. Notice the size indicators on the
bottom left of the tray.
4 Push the envelope stack aid tabs toward each other. They snap into place.
5 Flex a stack of envelopes back and forth and then straighten the edges on a level surface.
Press down the corners to flatten them.
Fan the envelopes. This prevents the edges of the envelopes from sticking together and helps
them feed properly.
6 Load envelopes flap side down with the stamp area and flap on the right. The end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the printer first.

7 Insert the standard tray.

How do i print a # 10 business envelope with the bizhub c200


First recommended that you use the bypass tray on the right side, also before placing the envelope in the bypass tray send the print job over first, the screen will say replenish paper then go ahead and place the envelope on the tray. and let it take it or hit the start button Ensure you select #10 commercial media and bypass tray in your print driver preferences. May also want to have tech come out and look at the tray and run MAX and Min. Adjustments.

Insert tray 1


You can set the default paper source for all print jobs. Tray 1 is the default factory settings, only an installed paper source will appear as a menu setting. A paper source selected by a print job will override the Default Source setting for the duration of the print job. Check the word processor print settings, make sure that it matches with the printer paper menu settings. To do this you may click print and click on properties button. Click on the paper tab and you can set the input options like paper size, paper tray (source) and paper type.

I have a large list of envelopes that I have to print, I have tried to put the envelopes in the tray but it won't print unless I put them in the manual feeder. How do I fix this problem?


If your printer is the Lexmark E260dn, the tray doesn't support envelopes. The tray is for letter /legal /A4 or A5 paper sizes. For smaller type of media, it has to be fed through the manual feeder. I'm really sorry but I hope I can assist you more on this.

Can't print DL envelopes on a Pixma iP4600


Hi ...

If you like to print DL envolopes, check the below 3 points and I am sure you will be able to print from your printer.

Prepare the printer:
  1. Open the Rear Tray and pull out the Paper Support. Put your finger in the rounded indent of the Paper Support and pull it out until it stops. (See <1> in Figure 1 below.)

  2. Open the Paper Output Tray. Put your finger in the rounded indent beside the Paper Output Tray and open it gently. (See <2> in Figure 1 below.)

  3. Open the Output Tray Extension. Open up and set the Output Tray Extension completely by pressing down the hollow on its front side. (See <3> in Figure 1 below.)

  4. Adjust the position of the Paper Thickness Lever. Set it to the right when printing on envelopes or T-shirt transfers, and left when printing on any other type of paper. (See <4> in Figure 1 below.)


    * Figure 1


    t_0123.jpg

  5. Load the envelope.
    1. Load the envelope against the right side of the Rear Tray. (See <1> in Figure 3 below.)
    2. Load the envelope with the address side facing UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left. (See Figure 2 below or, <b> in Figure 3 below.)

      * Figure 2

      05sj00091_04_te.gif


    3. Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope. (See <2> in Figure 3 below.)

      * Figure 3

      t_0148.jpg

      Note: Reset the Paper Thickness Lever to the left when you finish printing. (See <3> in Figure 3 below.)



Preparing Envelopes to Load:
  1. Press down firmly on the edges of the envelopes to make the folds crisp. Also, press firmly on the area that corresponds to the edges of the back flap.

  2. Remove any curling by holding the edges diagonally and bending them gently.

  3. If the edges of the envelope are inflated or are curling, place the envelope on a flat surface. With a pen, press down while moving it from the center toward the edges of the envelope.

  4. Ensure that no curl or puff exceeds 1/8 in. (3 mm).
Paper Type
Precaution
Envelope*
DL / #10
Set paper with the flap closed.

Unsuitable Envelopes:
  • Envelopes with an embossed or treated surface
  • Envelopes with a double flap or pressure seals
Printer Driver Settings:
  1. Select Envelope in Media Type.
  2. Select the size for envelopes.

    * In Windows, select DL Env. or Comm. Env. #10 in Page Size.

    * In Macintosh, select DL Envelope or #10 Envelope in Paper Size.

  3. Select Landscape in Orientation.

Note:
  • Be sure to set the printer driver setting properly. If you do not, the address will be printed in the wrong direction.

  • It may be required to change the paper size option to 'Envelope' in File Page Setup menu.

LEXMARK X1240 WON'T PRINT ENVELOPES


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.

Letter size envelope does not fit into the paper holding tray


Hi cmwww920,

Usually letter envelopes are insert long-way into your printer. I recommend using the Microsoft Word envelope wizard to print Sender and/or Recipient addresses on envelopes. Here's how it works:

1) Launch Microsoft Word.
2) Click Tools > Letters and Mailings > Envelopes and Labels...
3) Type in what you want to see on the envelope.
4) The default feed direction is shown in the lower right corner of the dialog box. To change it, click Options and select the Printing Options tab. Adjust the settings as you please.
5) Click OK to exit the Options Dialog Box
6) Click Print (in the upper right corner of the "Envelopes and Labels" dialog box.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H
