My lexmark e260dn ps3 will not print envelopes correctly
It prints the mailing address next to the return address. I have checked all of my settings and I am putting it in the right spot. I am using Microsoft word 2003 and clicking on the envelope. Typing the mailing address in the top box and omitting the return address. All of the settings worked correctly with the other printer I had but when I traded it for this lexmark I did not change any settings on Microsoft word. What else can I try?
Re: My lexmark e260dn ps3 will not print envelopes...
THIS PRINTER CANNOT PRINT ENVLOPES, CHECKS, MONEY-ORDERS OR OTHER CUSTOM SIZES.
I have tried the various drivers, and it just won't print custom size documents, like envelopes, or checks. The From address, typed in the top left corner falls on the top right, the to address typed in the center falls off the page, and so it does not even show up. I just see the word to in the right margin, but the addressee's name and address are missing. I have spent days with tech support and online,without a solution. This printer is a lemon.

I could not reproduce the problem using the latest PS3 driver from Lexmark's web site. However, the PS3 driver is not the default for this device. I would highly suggest downloading the HBP or PCL XL driver for it and see if it fixes your problem. I expect it will.
You can download the latest drivers for this printer from the following location:

Please follow the steps below on how to print on an envelope:
The print side of the envelope is faceup.
The paper guides rest against the edges of the envelopes.
You print the envelopes with Landscape orientation. Note: If you are mailing within Japan, then the envelope can be printed in Portrait orientation with the stamp in the lower right corner or in Landscape orientation with the stamp in the lower left corner. If you are mailing internationally, then print in Landscape orientation with the stamp in the upper left corner.
You select the correct envelope size. Select the next biggest size if the exact envelope size is not listed, and set the left and right margins so your envelope is correctly positioned.
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.
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:-
: set to match the loaded envelopes.
: if desired, select the Delivery point barcode
to make it easier for mail sorting machinery to correctly route the envelope.
: for Size 10 envelopes only, set the Return Address position .8 inch in the From left
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.
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.
Go into your Word Document and print from "Tools" then "Letters and Mailings" and click on Envelopes and Labels. Sometime the perimeter isn't defined and it is on there but it's outside the scope of your envelope, especially if the return address isn't in the correct place also. You may even be able to correct it where you are by decreasing the "window" of your typing space, it's just too large.
Sorry for the delay, but I'm new to this site and still trying to figure out how this site works.
OK, are you printing this envelope field from an application such as Word or from an application that sends explicit cursor move commands?
Are you using the correct envelope definition?
Can you do a "Print To File" from the print page menu and then send the failing print job to me so I can look at the file in binary format and see what information is actually being sent to the printer.
