Question about Brother MFC-9840CDW Laser Printer
For the MFC-9840CDW, I have the best results with envelopes by following the instructions in the manual:
1. open the back cover
2. pull down the two gray levers, one on the left side and one on the right side, to envelope position
3. close the back cover and send the print job
(feed envelopes from MP tray)

From what I understand, you need a laser printer with a ceramic roller to print envelopes, not a metallic roller like what you probably have.

Do U mean wrinkle the envelopes?,,,,I can solve some MFC-9840-CDW issues, but the 7369N is a guess. Read your manual or do a google search.....There maybe a setting in the 7360N that adjusts printing for card stock and envelopes....

Open the back of the printer. You will see 2 little blue levers on either side. Put them in the opposite direction, that is, if they are up, snap them down. I dont know the mechanics of this, but it worked for me.

Open the door on the back above the power cord. Rotate both blue levers all the way up so they change from "1" to "2". Wrinkle problem will be solved. This was in the troubleshooting section of the online user manual, page 95. You would think they would tell you about this in the envelope section of the manual.

I have a Brother MFC-8480 DN all in one printer, copier, fax and scanner.
I discovered that envelopes wrinkle because users, like me, didn't know that Brothers built in a no-wrinkle, pass through exit for envelopes, labels and thick paper.
Envelopes were never to be printed by inserting them in the front and letting them wrap around a HOT roller and get cooked and wrinkled. The way it works:
An envelope is inserted in the front and goes straight out the back of the printer through an exit door, completely avoiding the hot roll-through mechanism.
Take a look. On the back of the machine is a large pass through exit door. Just snap it open. You will see one blue lever on each side of the opening. Snap them both straight down to the . . .ta da. . ."envelope icons".
Put three envelopes in the front and they will print straight out the back, perfect and wrinkle free. After printing your envelopes, snap the blue levers back up and shut the door. Takes about five seconds to open the door and snap down the blue levers down/up.
Happy envelope printing.

Instead of moving the whole green lever to adjust that grey arrow to the envelope symbol, simply push the gray part that has the arrow on it. This will move the gray piece down to the env. symbol and will not move the green lever so you can close the back door. I used to have severly wrinkled envelopes. Now they print out perfect.

Did you pull down the 2 levers on the back of the computer? I forgot to do this one time and all of my envelopes came out wrinkled. I looked up troubleshooting and realized I forgot to perform that step. Worked great once it was done!
