Half-envelope error 41.3 or just won't print

I'm choosing the right size envelope, half-envelope (6x9) and whichever way I rotate it it will simply not print. I rotate it on the screen in both landscape and portrait. Sometimes I get the 41.3 error message after it takes the envelope through blank.

PS Running Vista. Couldn't install the new driver. It would just put it in a folder but not really 'install' it.

    Actually, after much work, I figured it out. Basically, I was creating a custom envelope that Staples sells, 6x9, and the printer won't accept custom envelopes. So, I just chose an envelope that came close to this size and moved the text around so it printed in the right place.

    Thanks.

If your getting a 41 error the printer thinks a different size is coming. For example the printer is expecting 81/2 and you are sending 11.
Make sure the printer is set to the proper size not only the progam you are sending from.
You can set tray 1 to CUSTOM or ANY and see if it helps.
hope this helps.

Envelopes won't print


Whichever application you are using for printing envelopes must have a set up icon and set, in options, for envelopes

That will show in which position your envelopes will be, when being transported through the printer. Like, print side up, right side of transport, and like that.

Make sure you haven't bypassed this, and be certain that the pass through matches what the printer expects when printing envelopes

My Word 2003, when using an InkJet printer, expects it on the right side, print up. When using my color LaserJet, expects to see the envelope in the center, print side down.

I hope this helps,

Need to print a half-fold card envelope with HP Photosmart C4480


I'm printing wedding invitation envelopes (or A6) and had to set both my C4480 and psc1315 to a regular size 8.5x11 letter size but changed my margins to reflect the smaller size for my envelope with the left side of the screen being the more narrow margin. After adjusting the top margin accordingly, I fed the envelopes, flap side down and straight into the printer and voila...envelope addresses are printed. Good luck. Blu

How to print an envelop


nstructions Use the following steps to ensure that you are ready to print envelopes. Your printer can have either a single envelope or multiple envelopes loaded and ready for printing.
  • If you are printing a single envelope, you can use the single envelope slot and leave your paper in the lower (IN) tray. This allows you to print the envelope and then a letter.
  • If you are printing a stack of envelopes, use the lower (IN) tray for loading the stack of envelopes.
To Load a Single Envelope
  1. Do not remove the paper from the lower (IN) tray. Be sure the card guide is in the down position, before using the single envelope slot.
  2. Remove a single envelope from its packaging.
  3. Slide the envelope evenly into the single envelope slot. The single envelope slot is located on the right side of the upper (OUT) tray. The envelope should be loaded with the address side down (flap side up).
  4. Make sure the creased flap edge of the envelope aligns with the right side of the single envelope slot.
  5. Slide the envelope through the slot until it stops. Make sure the envelope is not bent and is straight in the envelope slot.
    NOTE: To minimize print skew, use envelopes with rectangular flaps rather than triangular flaps.
To Load Multiple Envelopes
  1. Slide the paper width adjuster to its leftmost position.
  2. Pull out the paper length adjuster and remove any paper from the IN tray.
  3. Remove up to 20 envelopes from their packing and tap the short edge of the envelopes on a flat surface to even the stack.
  4. Slide the envelopes evenly into the IN tray, address side down (flap side up).
  5. Slide the paper width adjuster to the right until it gently touches the left edge of the envelope stack.
  6. For size Invitation A2 and C6 Envelopes, press the inside of the paper length adjuster handle to release and lower it.
  7. For all sizes of envelopes, push the paper length adjuster in toward the envelopes until it stops. Make sure the envelopes are flat in the lower tray and not bent.
Set up the Printer Properties
  1. Select Start on the taskbar. Choose Settings, then Printers. Right-click the printer. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  2. Select the Paper or Setup tab depending on the version of the printer driver software.
  3. In the Paper Options section, select the desired envelope size from the Paper Size drop-down box.
  4. Click OK.
Print Print the envelope from your chosen program. From most applications, just select the File menu, then choose Print. After Printing the Envelopes Reset the printer and the printer properties for the kind of printing you will be doing next.
  1. Remove any remaining envelopes from the lower (IN) tray.
  2. Slide the paper width adjuster to its leftmost position.
  3. Load the desired paper into the lower (IN) tray.
  4. On the computer, Select Start on the taskbar. Choose Settings, then Printers. Right-click the printer. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  5. Select the Paper or Setup tab depending on the version of the printer driver software.
  6. In the Paper Options section, select the desired paper size from the Paper Size drop-down box.
  7. Click OK.

Why cant i print envelopes


Well that depends, additional info would be great.

Here's an example:

PRINTING ENVELOPES from Microsoft Word

The envelope should be fed into the printer using the short side, all the way to the right, flap to the back and to the left.

Please follow the steps below to print envelopes in Microsoft Word:

1. Open Microsoft Word.
2. Click on TOOLS, then ENVELOPES AND LABELS.
3. Ensure the ENVELOPES tab is selected. Click on the OPTIONS button.
4. Select your envelope size under ENVELOPE OPTIONS (ie: #10).
5. Select PRINT OPTIONS.
6. Under FEED METHOD, from the six options available select the FOURTH icon from the left. Select FACE UP.
7. Ensure CLOCKWISE ROTATION is selected.
8. Under ENVELOPE OPTIONS, ensure you choose the correct envelope size (ie: #10).
9. Click OK, then PRINT.

The envelopes should print correctly now.

Sounds like it might be the same problem I had on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.

My Fix, combining several others:

1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.

Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list

Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.

If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.

When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!

Envelope prints the wrong way


Just choose "landscape' from the printer properties instead of the default 'portrait'. Now adjust the margins, etc so that you can position the text exactly whre you want it

PS. Dont forget to rate this Fixya if the solution worked!

Printing envelopes


You may have to go into the printer properties and change the size in the paper size drop down list, Your printer thinks that you are trying to print the envelopes on standard size sheet of paper, if you change that to the 6x9 in the printer properties it should work for you now, If it don't just write back here and we will try something else.
