Stopped printing envelopes in proper direction

For years my Brother 1440 printer has correctly printed all envelopes with the print in the proper direction along the length of an envelope. It suddenly started printing across the short width of the env. In the settings it shows that it is set to print face down in the center of carrier as always. I even deleted and reinstalled the drivers. Any suggestions appreciated.

Re: Stopped printing envelopes in proper direction

Before printing an envelope, try toggling the print orientation in the printing properties. If it's horizontal, select vertical - if it's vertical, select horizontal. That may sort it out for you.

Re: Stopped printing envelopes in proper direction

What software are you printing from? It sounds more likely to be software causing the issue.

Check carefully that you have specified it to use the # 10 and that the format does not include a wide margin. If that fails, try printing the Return address 'right justified' and see what happens.

check to see if you are load the tray properly and that the setting in the print preferences are correct that is they reflect envelope size and not letter size or plain print.

Double printing addresses on envelopes

You need to make sure you set up for envelopes in printing preferences as this makes the fuser a little hotter. If all is set up properly you need a shop to adjust the fuser temperature. The thick envelopes require more heat to bond the toner properly.

When i print envelope the return address gets cut off

There are some parameters that must be correct before an envelope will print properly. The M/P tray on the KM-3035 should be configured for the proper envelope size, probably COMMERCIAL 10, (but could be another size...need to measure the envelope) and type should be set to ENVELOPE. When printing from the application,i.e. Word or Word Perfect, be sure to select the proper printer and configure the Print Set-up, print direction, size, etc...You will have these options by clicking file and then print from the application print menu.

Envelope printing

You need to insert the envelope in the manual feed area and open the exit door at the back this allows the envelope to go straight through the printer hopefully limiting creasing. Check the envelope settings in windows make sure that you are using the correct size and feed selection.
