Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper feed I am printing labels (avery 5294 - 12  2.5 " diameter circles on an 8.5 x 11). The machine will not consistently start printing with the same margin on top.  I try to set the label sheets in one at a time in exactly the same way, Sometimes it prints early, sometimes late.  At any rate I'm not hitting my labels!  Is this a cleaning problem?

Re: paper feed

The feed rollers are slipping on the surface of the label, causing the page to load incorrectly. There is no permanent solution at this time. Try one of the following workarounds to correct this issue. Workarounds Workaround 1 Adjust the top margin using Page Setup.

  1. Click File , then Page Setup in the program being used, (accessing Page Setup may vary from program to program. Refer to the Help file for that program).
  2. Adjust the top margin until printing is correct on the label.
Workaround 2 Manually print one sheet at a time. Place one sheet of labels in the input tray at a time, printing only that page. Repeat for all pages of labels needed.

How can I get my Avery 8876 business card sheets to feed through my printer?

Avery is a fairly good name in the business.Brother on the other hand seems to have ignored the reasons why folks don't buy brothers. It's these little annoying things that bigger company's have spent time and energy on. For one there's usually a lever you push to control how much pressure the two fusing rollers push; hot rollers, for years this perplexed the big guys because there all ready is a pretty small tolerance of melting the toner and not burning the paper; melting the toner(powered plastic) next was the ever annoying OHP overhead projector sheets. this is plastic toner on plastic"paper" nightmare! melt the toner but not the plastic its on.... Well enough of engineering issues, time and perseverance paid off. now comes a sticky label on a waxxy surface that is twice as thick as paper and yet has toner to be fixed on it and dried....Some company's like cannon tried a cold roller that seemed to work at first but when things went bad they really went bad.labels coming off all in the wrong places... Toshiba and Savin Ricoh decided to get with Avery and others and make one side harder to come off than the other; reduce the squeeze pressure and increase the opposite "static cling" voltage. Also the angle it hit the feed section// Bypass feed only/Lt-R. Following the printed directions in the individual label sheet seemed to reduce the issue to a minimum. Understanding all the changes the poor piece has to go go through in an 8second processes is half the battle. hope this helps a smidge~~~SC

Set up a mail merge for labels avery L7162, but the printer prints them a different size - Printer is HP M3035. It is something not set up on the printer

You will need to feed these through the manual tray and you should set the paper size and type to match this label. The avery site shows this as an A4 label sheet. If you are in North America the default on this printer is letter size not A4.You should also ensure that you have configured the print driver correctly when you go to print.

How do I feed an AVERY label 5453 into the printer?

Just place the sheet of labels in the paper tray.
You may need to place the labels face down in the paper tray so the prints on the correct side of the labels. If it didn't print on the correct side of the labels then place the labels face up.

Lexmark won't print on Avery labels

The printer is expecting the label stock to be loaded into the manual feed tray, not the regular paper tray. If it does not sense anything in the manual feed tray it will not continue. If you are loading the stock in the tray, it may need to be pushed further into the try to trigger the sensor.

How do i print labels using epson r2400 photo printer?

If you are using the Avery template, make sure you change the page setup settings from Manual Front (default) to Default Tray (sheet). Then when it tries to fix the layout, select ignore (on Wrd 2007 anyway). Then select Photo / Glossy paper and hopefully away you go.

Printing labels on bizhub C450

Hi nwillett,
Yes and no, sorry if that doesn't make much sense.
For years Minolta recommended Avery labels, but these days they recomment labels manufactured by Howard Smith Papers, their website is
The thing with labels is always to use the one your copier service company suggests. Otherwise they'll invalidate you contract and you'll be liable for callouts and repairs caused by using Avery labels.
However, Avery labels are good and I have experienced very few problems with them I pressume you using the lables in the correct orientation and also using the manual bypass to feed them.

Printer Jam - when i put a sheet of Avery labels, printer jams

When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.
