Are you sure it is the "paper jam" light that is lit? My "load paper" light always lights when I try to print an envelope, but if you press the "continue" button it prints.

Not an ideal solution, but, Dell printers were not desined with envelopes in mind. (I used to work there)

My solution, if you value your time at all, pick up an HP personal laser printer. Costs a little more, but the time saved will much outweigh the inital cost.

You CAN get the dell printer to work a few times maybe but consistently is not a possility....

How do I print envelopes?


In the lower tray, remove the paper.
Adjust the side paper holders to the width of the envelope.
Envelope should be face side or print side facing down.
Usually have to load one at a time to avoid jam.
When finished, reverse the process to normal paper.

I have a brand new ink cartridge in my printer. It printed the test page ok. When I try to print envelopes, it always says paper jam (there is no paper jam) the envelopes just wont feed. It's a Lexmark...


Make sure to set the correct paper setting on the printer or the Lexmark software before sending the print job. Adjust the printer's paper guide to the correct envelope dimension.

• Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the

quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes,

consider the following factors:

- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should

not exceed 90 g/m2 or jamming may occur.

- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should

lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not

contain air.

- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,

nicked, or otherwise damaged.

- Temperature: You should use envelopes that are

compatible with the heat and pressure of the

machine during operation.

• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and

well creased folds.

• Do not use stamped envelopes.

• Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows,

coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic

materials.

• Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with

more than one flap that folds over to seal must use

adhesives compatible with the machine's fusing

temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine's

specification to view the fusing temperature, see

page 82. The extra flaps and strips might cause

wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage

the fuser.

• For the best print quality, position margins no closer

than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.

• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope's
seams meet.

Place the side to be printed facing up.

Envelope jam HP Officejet 8500


Hi,

Try to print envelope through Microsoft Word

Steps:-

1) Click Tools , click Letters and Mailings and then click Envelopes and Labels .
2) Type the Delivery and Return address information.
3) Click Options .
4) On the Envelope Options tab, set the following options:-
  • Envelope size : set to match the loaded envelopes.
  • US only : if desired, select the Delivery point barcode to make it easier for mail sorting machinery to correctly route the envelope.
  • Return address : for Size 10 envelopes only, set the Return Address position .8 inch in the From left section.
5) Select the Printing Options tab and verify that the following settings are selected:
  • Select the Feed Method option that shows the envelope on the far right side with the short edge first.
  • Select Face down .
  • Examine the selected feed method image and verify that the envelope flap is on the left side of the envelope. If it is on the right, select or deselect Clockwise rotation.
6) Click OK and then click Print .

As envelop can not feed correctly every time, it depends on the weight, flap design, paper type and other factors & cause jam, To prevent those you can do.
  • Print envelopes at a higher quality setting so envelope is pulled through the unit more slowly. e.g:- Switch fast to slow mode or slow to best mode.
  • Tuck the flap inside the envelope before loading it into the printer.

Have a nice day...don't forget to rate the solution.

Do not continue this way, you are sure to ruin your paper sensor or the like. Most probably you have a paper jam inside near the carriage or roller. Open at front, check inside for paper jam.
