Question about HP Deskjet 6980 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

HP Deskjet 6980 will not print Labels using Microsoft Word

The printer used to print the labels fine ( using the word program- going to mailing labels and selecting the 5200 template) but now it will not print them at all. It just grabs the paper, pauses like its going to print, then spits the paper back out. It doesnt seem to be getting caught on anything.

It also prints everything else fine. Its just the labels that I'm having trouble with.

Any ideas?

You could be printing a font the printer does not know. Make sure it is capable of printing the version you are trying to use.

SOURCE: Labels spitting out, but blank

sounds like you have thermal transfer labels in the printer, you need direct thermal labels.

expose the labels to some heat and see if they turn black, you can do this by quickly running your finger nail across the labels. if they don't blacken then you have the wrong labels.

SOURCE: Labels will not auto feed

Have you gone into your print driver and changes the settings there?
I am not sure with your inormation if you have changed the settings on the printer or in the driver.
What it sounds like is happening is that there is a mismatch between the printer and computer.
It may even be set so that it is looking for lables in a bypass tray.
Somewhere there is a mismatch in information as to where the labels are loaded.
Start at the driver properties page and confirm every step in your setup.

SOURCE: Alignment wrong when using label stationery - OK with plain paer

Hi,
open the related word document.
select 1 line above the Text in question, press enter twice.
That way, the text will drop by 2 lines.
try a test page on this, alternatively try using a different label layout, until you get the desired result.
Other than the AveryL7160.

SOURCE: Pausing between labels

I have found that using the designer driver causes this problem. You may need to go back to the originma driver for that printer if this is the case for you.

You might try setting up Word for a 'custom' label since it offers that option.
I've done some strange labels by directing Word via that feature.

Reset an hp 722c printer


To reset your printer, unplug from wall and computer. Wait 1 minute. Done. That won't fix your problem. If it prints fine off word processor, the printer is fine. Need some setup for labels.

Which labels for 6310 HP pinter?windows viista progar? 8160labels do not fit 6310 priinter


Vista wouldn't be your problem as your Operating System is unimportant in choosing labels but the program you use to print your labels is very important.

If you Use Microsoft Word, for example, you will need to choose the template for your labels. That number is on the box of labels.

In Word (for Instance) you can do the following:
<File>, <New>, <Templates> (templates are on Left side).
Choose your Type of Label and the Label number from there.

Otherwise, some label companies offer free programs, specifically for printing their labels.

AVERY labels has a free program for printing their label numbers and the Program: AVERY Wizard For microsoft Word is free.

I hope this helps as you do not say which program you use to print Labels and you also do not say which label numbers and/or label type you wish to print.

Thank You For Choosing FixYa~!

How do you type and print Avery labels 74520? I have lost the instructions which came with the labels.


This can be done with settings through your word processing program. Assuming you are using Word:

Microsoft Word 2007
The newest version of Microsoft® Word now includes hundreds of Avery Templates for labels, business cards, dividers and more.

Find Avery Templates by selecting the Mailing tab at the top of the Microsoft® Office Word screen. Just choose Create > Labels > Options > Avery US Letter, then choose your template by selecting the correct Avery Product Code.

Access Pre-Designed Avery Templates that are available from Office Online by selecting the round Office button at the top left of the screen, selecting New and then choosing the Avery product type. Pre-designed templates for Avery business cards, greeting cards, dividers, labels, note cards and postcards are available.

Avery Wizard for Microsoft Office is a free download which inlcudes step-by-step instructions to format Avery labels. Trust this is helpful. :)

How do I get my hp deskjet 6940 to print labels. I'm trying to print Avery 5498 labels


You will have to use software to make the labels...like Microsoft Office Word, Open office Writer, or Microsoft Works. In MS Office Word (2003) go to tools->letters and mailings -> envelope and lables. Create the label you need.

If you use open office, go to File->New->Labels and create the label you need.

After which, you put the paper in the printer and print them out. May want to check out the size so you make sure it prints correctly.

I can't get labels to print within the label boundries with my HP Deskjet D4360 printer. It is a printer problem, but I thought you might have the solution. I love the printer, but I use a lot of...


All printers have a "non-printable area" at the four edges of the sheet. If you labelling program doesn't allow you to specify how wide this area is and subtract it from the layout, you'll have difficulty printing inside the boundaries of the first and last label across the sheet. Similarly the top and bottom labels might not be complete.

C6180 will not print labels as set out in the avery template. will bunch up as they go down sheet


Step 1 : Change the print settings
The print settings of the HP All-in-One can be customized to handle nearly any print task.
Before changing the print settings, decide whether to change the settings for the current print job only, or to make the settings the default for all future print jobs. How print settings are displayed depends on whether to apply the change to all future print jobs or just to the current print job
Change the print settings for all future jobs:
In the HP Solution Center, click Settings , point to Print Settings , and then click Printer Settings .
Make changes to the print settings and click OK . Change the print settings for the current job:
On the File menu in the software program, click Print . Make sure that the HP All-in-One is the selected printer.
Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on the software program, this button might be called Properties , Options , PrinterSetup , or Printer .
Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs.
Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Click Print or OK to begin printing.
Step 2 : Print with 210 x 297 mm (8.5 x 11 inch) labels
The HP All-in-One can be used with any software program designed for printing.
This document contains basic information about using the HP All-in-One to print on labels using a software program. For additional information, such as printing a poster, printing multiple pages on a single sheet, and more, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP software.
Follow these steps to print on labels:
· Make sure to load labels in the input tray. Always use letter or A4 label sheets designed for use with HP inkjet devices (such as HP inkjet labels).
· Make sure the labels are no more than two years old. Labels on older sheets might peel off when the paper is pulled through the HP All-in-One, causing paper jams.
  • Fan the stack of labels to make sure no pages are sticking together. Place a stack of label sheets on top of full-size sheet of plain paper in the paper tray, label side down. Do not insert labels one sheet at a time.
    1. On the File menu in the software program, click Print . Select the HP All-in-One as the printer. To change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
    2. Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs.
    3. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Click Print or OK to begin printing.

Solution!! Use "HP premium Plus Photo Paper" for the paper type setting. Works great with Avery labels & card stock as well. (business cards had the same alignment problem)

Label Printing


The printer is not the issue here...That is a great printer BTW.

The issue is which program are you using when trying to print out these labels? Do you have Microsoft Word, Works, or some simular word processor program installed on your computer?

There are free document templates that have all the settings for printing 2 x 4 labels and others. Here is a link for a 4 x 2 tem-late that would work in any version of Word, SureThing CD Labeler and any program that handle PDFs.

http://www.worldlabel.com/autoconfig/autotemplates.asp?finditemnum=ol125

You can take label printing to the next level by using a program that will read in your address book and print each on one label automatically. You don't spend time trying to type them all in.

If yo have MS word, look under HELP for "mail merge", that wil get you on the right track.

Let me know =)

I had the same issue when using Avery labels, here's what resolved it for me.

Go to Control Panel, Printers, go to the active default, right mouse click, click Printing Prefrences..., change the drop down "Type is:" to 'Other Photo Paper" and apply.

You should then be good to go!
