Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer

1 Answer

We have an HP Laserjet 2420 PCL 5e - it prints perfectly on regular paper but will not print envelopes. We have to manually feed the envelopes on the tray but it only prints gibberish. I have rebooted the printer, the computer and disconnected and reconnected everything. The printer is a direct connect to the PC are trying to print from but it is networked via the pc it is connected to currently. Help!

This is not a printer problem. You have a computer problem. In ALL cases, the printer is told what to do from the computer, it does not report TO the computer.

PRINT RUBS OFF


When printing envelopes ensure you set paper/media type to Envelopes, and feed via tray 1/bypass . Paper type setting sets correct fuser temp, the fuser is the hot bit at the rear that "melts" the image into the paper.

If paper type is set correctly then I recommend you change the fuser unit.

Ensure envelopes are standard type. ie you are printing on paper envelopes

The easy way to diagnose this is to put a regular piece of paper in and print the envelope on that to see where it is actually printing. This is likely a wrong envelop size selected in your software not a problem with the printer. It is only reproducing what it is told to. Also make sure that the paper options in the print driver reflect the correct settings for size of paper.

Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?
