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.

    I have the same problem, ever since I bought a C510 3 years ago. Find any solutions yet? This is a very frustrating 'feature' !

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.

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.

Where do you put envelope to print on it?


You are brave trying to print to an envelope...remove paper from tray, put in "plain" envelope, print side down, flap should point to left ( I put a dab of glue stic on flap to hold it securely) will print from top or bottom tray. If envelope keeps coming out askew...make sure to check for a wayward piece of paper stuck in roller from last paper jam.

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

  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

Set paper with the flap closed.

Unsuitable Envelopes:

  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.

How to print envelopes aficio ricio mp c4500


On an MP-C4500, envelopes must be printed using the bypass tray (the fold-out tray on the right hand side). Put the envelope in face-down and tighten the two fences so the envelope is snug.

When printing the envelope, make sure the print driver is set for the correct envelope size. If envelopes tend to jam in the printer, try setting the bypass paper type for thick paper.

Dell printer 3100 cn laser


I had the dreaded 024-969 and was just able to print a test page.

I removed paper and reached inside the MPF. There's a spring-loaded lever facing upward, toward the back of the tray that the paper rests on and depresses. I toggled this up and down a dozen times.

I vacuumed out the entire tray area and then blew air into the same area by reversing the shop vac hose connection to the output hole.

Printer now prints.

Envelope Feeder is not accepting the command


> Home > Support & Drivers > Knowledge Base

Solution --> Phaser 4400 Printer: Printing envelopes

Printing EnvelopesEnvelopes can be printed from the optional envelope feeder, the Multi-Purpose Tray, or Tray 1, 2, or 3.
Guidelines for envelope printing
  • Use only paper envelopes.
  • Do not print on the back of the envelope.
  • Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces.
  • Keep unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid the effects of moisture and dryness, which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling.
  • Envelopes may wrinkle depending on weight and stiffness of the envelope.

Many applications include a tool for creating an envelope document. For example, Microsoft Word includes an Envelopes and Labels feature in the Tools menu. Be sure to:
  • Select faceup.
  • Clear Clockwise Rotation.
  • Select the feed method with the image centered and the stamp on the envelope to the upper left.

caution_image88x30.gif Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces; they can damage the printer. Damage caused by using unsupported envelopes might not be covered by your printer's warranty.
note_image33x30.gif Note: The heat from the printing process can melt certain types of envelope glue. If the envelope flap sticks shut after printing the test print, tuck the flaps inside the envelopes when printing the remaining envelopes. Printing envelopes from the envelope feeder
  1. Insert the envelopes into the envelope feeder. For more information, refer to the Trays section of the Trays and Paper Guide on the Interactive Documentation CD-ROM.
    • Place the side to be printed faceup.
    • The top of the envelopes should be toward the left of the printer.
