Question about Samsung ML1740 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Envelopes and labeles

Our printer will not print envelopes or labels correctly. When the formatting appears on the computer screen it appears correctly for both labels or an envelope. However, when we hit "print," the label sheet comes out with the address on the wrong label(s) and the envelope comes out with only the right edge of the address on the left edge of the actual envelope. Sometimes only the last letters of the address show on the left edge of the envelope. It appears as if it's printing in the middle of an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper.

Go the "print" dialog and select "settings". Ensure that the paper size, margins and orientation are not set for 8.5x11.  You did not mention the software you are using to print the envelopes/labels so this is the only guess I can give.   I have seen software that made me have to override the settings before.

    With WinWord, I do NOT suspect the software..as much as I dislike Billy Boy Gates.  But, just in case, go to FILE>PAGE SETUP and ensure that all your settings are correct.



     



    Then in the PRINT dialog that comes up after you do FILE>>PRINT choose PROPERTIES buttons next to the selected printer and make sure that all these settings are correct. Different printers use different dialogs for the properties but check your margins, paper size and orientation(landscape/portrait).

Print labels and envelopes


With the HP ENVY 110 series, you can print on a single envelope, a group of envelopes, or label sheets
designed for inkjet printers.


To print a group of addresses on labels or envelopes


1. Print a test page on plain paper first.
2. Place the test page on top of the label sheet or envelope, and hold both up to the light. Check the spacing for
each block of text. Make adjustments as needed.
3. Load the labels or envelopes into the paper tray.
CAUTION: Do not use envelopes with clasps or windows. They can get stuck in the rollers and cause
paper jams.
4. Slide paper-width guides inward against the stack of labels or envelopes until the guides stop.
5. Select the appropriate options.
• On -Paper/Quality- tab select a Plain paper type.
• Click the [Advanced] button, and select the appropriate envelope size from the Paper Size drop down
menu.
6. Click [OK], and then click [Print] or [OK] in the Print dialog box.




If you print from within a program that DOES have that listed (like M$ Word,) then you don't need the limited printer driver to specify the paper size.

How to print envelopes


1.Buy envelopes at any office supply store. They come in all shapes, sizes, textures and colors, so choose ones that go with the type of invitation you are sending out.

2.Open Microsoft Word 2007 and click on the Mailings tab.

3.Click on Envelopes in the Create section.

4.Click on the Envelopes tab when the Envelopes and Labels box comes up. The box will probably come up with the Envelopes tab open, so you may not need to do this.

5.Enter the recipient's address in the Delivery Address box. Invitation envelopes should include the names of everyone invited--for example: Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith and family. Don't worry about the font at this point--you can change it later.

6.Enter your return address in the Return Address box. As with the Delivery Address, you can change the font later.

7.Click on Options. Use the drop-down menu in the Envelope Options tab to change the size of the envelope if needed. The packaging of the envelopes that you purchased will have information about the size of the envelopes. It is very important that you choose the correct size so that the envelopes print correctly.

8.Adjust the font of the delivery and return addresses. Click on Font in each section and change the font style or size. You can also bold, italicize or choose other options regarding the font.

9.Adjust the placement of the delivery and return addresses on the envelopes. In each section, click the arrows in the "From left" or "From top" boxes. In the preview section below, you can see the movement of the addresses as you adjust the placement. Line up everything so that it looks good to you.

10.Click on the Printing Options tab. This is important because you must select how you feed the envelopes into your printer. Choose the correct way that they are fed, whether they are fed into the printer face up or face down, and if they should be fed in manually. This will all depend on your specific printer. Consult your owner's manual for this information if you are unsure. Click OK and you will return to the Envelopes and Labels box.

11.Insert the envelopes into your printer. Click Print once you have everything formatted and arranged how you want. You should print one envelope first to make sure the layout is correct. Once you've confirmed it printed correctly, print all your envelopes.

Printing envelopes


It starts with your software. You must have a program which allows you to enter info that can be formatted to print on an envelope(Word or another word processing program).
When you start a new document you tell the program what you want to do. Once the data is entered it is a simple matter of manually feeding the envelope into the printer. Envelopes should not be bent or have dogears or damaged because they can damage your printer. You may have to try the envelope a couple times until you get it fed the correct direction. Another option is to print labels using Excel and print up a whole sheet of labels at a time. Good luck.

Can't print from the MP tray?


When you print labels or envelopes you need to select the correct tray from the print menu. (File print or ctrl P) or the printer will think the normal paper tray is being used.

You can force the printer to change the tray after the print has been sent by pressing the continue button on the printer, just make sure that the normal tray has no paper in it.
