Xante Ilumina covering envelopes full of toner

I am trying to run envelopes, the envelopes are coming out fully black. When I open up the top cover and look at the transfer belt it is covered in toner. What can I do to stop this?

I have had three printers which "supposedly" printed envelopes. Only one of them really did. STOP TRYING!!! Try your best to COMPLETELY clean everything of toner. If that doesn't work, take cheap paper and keep printing until the mess is cleared up. This should work, but if you have gummed up the wrong parts with toner you can either take it to a pro whom you call first and describe the problem before you take it to him/her, which is probably going to be expensive and all that he may do is take it apart and say it's beyond repair and charge you whatever he/she charges (find out first). The alternative that I would take is to try to fix it myself. I have found this site for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cr4wWt2ci_4&list=PL6BEA51BFAEECF4BF
It may be helpful. I gather that this is an expensive printer. However when I tried to Google what you wrote it was listed but it would not respond to a click or a double-click (it should have responded to a single click). This is the best that I can do for you. Good luck.

it is a fact of digital print that toner scatter will apear ever so slightly. But it is noticable much more on glossy stock, as there is a high reflectivity, and no micro valleys in surface texture to loose it in..having said that...glossy stock is very difficult to print on with the Ilumina..even on label setting/ auto select for weight and Media switch on(this is the best I have been able to achieve)

SOURCE: full bleed printing

update on this, you cannt full bleed on the lead or tail edge, due to the sensors telling the unit when the paper starts to feed, and when the sheet ends as it enters the machine, you can only bleed to edge on the sides, by overstating the page size width.

Xante envelope feeder won't lift


You have two (2) sensor that have to be made, the first one is on the bottom of the feeder and the other one is at the very top of or near the feed roller. When you block the bottom sensor the feeder should move up. If the feeder does not move up their is a problem with the cable that connect to the printer and the feeder or it could be the Motor control board that is inside the printer itself. I would check the connection first, covering the bottom sensor if it does not move up most likely the control board is bad. Also make sure that the feeder in position switch is also made by the feeder plate.

Please what can I do to work the machine that says fatal error 133; for xante ilumina


If you are in a Windows OS it means that:
133 JOIN or SUBST command can not be used for a drive that already contains readers joints.

So uninstall your printer and install it again using the best driver.

Ink is smudged on envelope. How do I stop that from happening?


i bet you're printing in Black,
what happens is when black is selected, the 3 colored drums lift up 2 mm annd only the K drum is engaged, amd there is no static in the transfer belt under the CMY drums.
envelopes have air in them and can bounce along the bely after the black has printed, and seeing the toner is powder and not yet fused on, the toner touches the cyan drum as the envelope hits the fuser entry point as well as dragging on the Left transfer belt Blue lift handle(take out the belt and spring the handle off).
If you open the lid in this print mode, and lift out the cyan drum, turn it over and pull back the cover for the OPC drum, you will see the black toner on the green drum.
FIX 1. In the art work place a tiny dot of yellow. this will run the print mode in color and enagage all the drums. gaurantee your print will be fine, and know one ever sees that yellow dot.Problem is, this then runs down your CMY drums for black only printing.

FIX2.
If you have a later machine, downlaod iQueue from Xante.com (free) fantastic software. and get the machine updated with the latest X1.11 firmware from your dealer.
This allows with iQueue, to set the machine to print Black only, and you run the machine without the CMY drums installed....it works, it's great...
