You have to change the setting in on your computer. The settings on the printer itself always come in second place. So change the settings in the software on your computer and it will print envelopes without problems.

On a clx-6200 message says "paper jam 0-c=open/close door. what door is this?

It is telling you that there is a paper jam. Open the door, pull the jammed paper out, close the door, it should clear the message.

How do I print envelopes in the printer Samsung SCX 4824fn? thanks

• Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the

quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes,

consider the following factors:

- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should

not exceed 90 g/m2 or jamming may occur.

- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should

lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not

contain air.

- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,

nicked, or otherwise damaged.

- Temperature: You should use envelopes that are

compatible with the heat and pressure of the

machine during operation.

• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and

well creased folds.

• Do not use stamped envelopes.

• Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows,

coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic


• Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with

more than one flap that folds over to seal must use

adhesives compatible with the machine's fusing

temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine's

specification to view the fusing temperature, see

page 82. The extra flaps and strips might cause

wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage

the fuser.

• For the best print quality, position margins no closer

than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.

• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope's
seams meet.

Place the side to be printed facing up.

Paper jam all the time

I've got the same problem but with envelopes. Every time I want to print envelopes the printer jams. It happens at least every 3rd or 4th envelope? Any suggestions? I wonder if I have the tray setup properly?

I have a Samsung CLX-3160FN, and after every page


it is most likely that the fuser actuater arm is not sitting back to the sensor properly. open the back door you will be able to see the fuser, on your right hand side you should be able to see a fliper that sit in between a sensor. try to adjust the fliper flag and see if it works.

if it still continue to give you the same error. try remove the fuser four screw 2 side on each. adjust the flag again and fix it back. it should work and double check for any lose small pices of paper jam in the printer.

Where to place envelope.

This should be in your manual complete with pictures.

You can print a single envelope using the photo/envelope feeder. Insert the envelope into the photo/envelope feeder with the side to be printed facing down and the flap to the left.

You can print multiple envelopes (max 20) from the bottom tray. Temporarily remove the top (output) tray. Slide the paper guide in the bottom tray to the left. Load your envelopes to the far right with the side to be printed down, flaps to the left (I like to tuck the flaps into each envelope so they are less easily jammed, but this is optional). Slide the paper guide to the right snugly against the envelopes. Replace the output tray. Start printing.

Envelopes jam in my hp 6940; paper sheets feed fine

I have had varying success with envelopes. Can you feed in the other way round? Sometimes different envelopes perform better. The peel N seal can be very difficult

Printing envelopes 4" x 91/2"

when you print envelopes you will have to select the paper size in the print options. There should be a pull down menu with every paper size and envelope size. Select the appropriate one, and be sure the envelopes are placed the right way when you feed them in. Most home printers work best when you manually feed the envelopes in. Its a tricky process, and you may have a few jams.
