Question about Lexmark C782N Laser Printer
We have 10 C782n printers that are continually jamming when running vinyl label stock. The stock meets the Lexmark specs. Some printers work fine as long as the drawers are full; some won't pull from the drawer at all. Other times, the jams occur in the middle of large jobs (160+ labels). No consistency, but lots of ********** users. We have the paper supply setting on *vinyl labels*. The labels come off pretty hot, but afraid the ink won't adhere properly if we reduce the setting to plain paper, which does seem to help.
If your having problems with jamming and not picking at all. buy a can of cfc contact cleaner or equivilent. spray this on a rag and clean the surface of the rubber pick wheels in the tray. These wheels are known to get a shinny build up on them from the media. this will cause timming isssues as well as not picking the media at all.

This printer has capability to print on labels. Here are some tips when printing on labels:
· Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that the labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
· Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to Heavy.
· Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25-psi (172-kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.
· Do not use labels with slick backing material.
· Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.
· Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.
· Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.
· Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.
· If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2-mm (0.06-in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive.
· Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.
· Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual-sided labels are not supported.
