HP Lasejet 8550
I am trying to print a label and the label gets jammed on the transfer drum every time, but it will print fine with no problem on the same label media when printing the configuration page. To sum it up, I try to print from my computer on the label media it jams, print from the same file on regular paper, prints fine. But will print configuration page on the same label media that jams when printing from a file.
I cannnnoooooottt believe what I am reading! If you are going to use labels on a laserjet, you need to get thermal labels! The other cheap labels are made for inkjets, matric, or daisywheel printers. The laserjets have heat rollers that will melt plastic. It will melt the gum on the non thermal labels and get them everywhere!! Master Rod

Have you setted up in the printer driver to print on label? the printer will automatically adjust the internal parts for printing on a higher density paper!
If you done it gently remove the Duplexer unit from the behind of the printer and chech for pieces of paper or everything could cause the paper jam!
Hope you found it useful, for futher questions i'm here :)
Most likely to be a page feed problem, look online to clean page feeder rubber rollers.
Try here for the pdf manual which covers problem with jams and skewing
Over time, printing labels builds up a light residue of the adhesive (due to heat pressing) used on the labels in the paper path. A thorough cleaning of all paper path parts with alcohol prep pads, or Glass Plus and quality paper towels, will reduce this gum build up.
You should regularly print standard paper jobs on a laser printer that will be printing labels. Rule of thumb is 4:1 - four sheets of regular paper print for each sheet of labels printed. This helps keep the adhesive cleaned out of the paper path.
Patience and a lot of scrubbing should do the trick, though you may have to install a printer maintenance kit early given the issues noted. Printing labels cuts maintenance kit duration in half, at a minimum.
Try putting more than one sheet of labels in the paper tray. Even if you're printing one label, it helps the printer grab the paper without that error somehow. If you're already using more than one sheet, I don't know. Good luck either way!!! :)
These labels are supposed to be for laser or inkjet . A inkjet basically sprays the ink to print. A laser deposits plastic powder and then uses heat to melt it or fuse it to the paper. To get a good inkjet print you need a softwaer paper, to get a good laser print you want a harder paper and a glue that can handle the heat. I had a quick look at customer complaints on that product and you are not alone. Either the printing is coming off (inkjet) or the label is coming off inside the printer.
One of the other problems with labels in lasers can also be how the paper is printed. The paper can be rolled around a few rollers and drums. This action can be pretty close to how you peel the labels off of the backer sheet. Add a bit of heat to make the glue loosen up a bit and you get your problem.
Setting to thicker paper should have helped but the best thing you could do is print it flat. Most laser printers have a back tray that is usually closed. When opened the tray lets the paper come out without having to go around rollers. If your model doesn't do that about the only thing I could suggest is to try to print the labels on a cold printer. So that would mean one page or so at a time with a wait for it to cool down. You could also try a differant brand or another avery type but you may end up with a label collection if they prove to have the same problem with your printer.
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.
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.
Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs.

Looks like label stuck on the toner cartridge. Easiest solution would be to replace toner cartridge or if you can slowly spin the OPC drum on toner cartridge till you find label NOTE: damage to the OPC drum with affect print quality as well as oil from fingers will affect PQ( print quality)
Try this, make a print from the by-pass tray, does it go OK or jam??
If it jams then there is a problem with the paper feed from the tray.
If it jams then
1-check the drum and see if there is an image on it( you can put a mark on the edge to see if it's rotating, thus eliminating the drum unit)
2-same for the reg roller
3-check for labels ar foreign objects
If you're still getting smudges, there must still be a label or part of a label either on one of the image drums or the transfer belt, i've found in the past it somethings gets stuck inside the unit on the cleaning blade. What i suggest is you run a print and open the front door at the paper travels along the transfer belt, look at all the image drums and see if you can see the smudge on one of them, if so the problem is caused by that cartridge if not it's in the transfer belt somewhere. You may need to try stopping the printer a few times and if the problem is in one of the cartridges, you will mst likely have to replace it, as with the transfer belt if you think that's causing the problem it's easier to remove it and rotate the belt manually.
Please note the image drums and the transfer belt are all light sensative
If you've tried installing the latest drivers and the problem persists it sounds like you have a lemon. The printers have a 2 yr warranty, so I would contact the retailer you purchased from and replace the printer. If your labels are jamming. Try the compatible File Labels available at LabelValue.com. They have both the Dymo 30327 and Dymo 30277 labels in a compatible version.
