Alignment wrong when using label stationery - OK with plain paer

In MS Word 2002 under XP Pro I have created a name and address and chosen the option to print a full page of Avery L7160 A4 labels. If I put plain paper into the Deskjet 3940 printer they print perfectly aligned to the labels. If I put in a sheet of label stationery they print 2 lines too high on the page. I change nothing between the two print commands. Everything is set to default settings, I change nothing between the two print commands.

open the related word document.
select 1 line above the Text in question, press enter twice.
That way, the text will drop by 2 lines.
try a test page on this, alternatively try using a different label layout, until you get the desired result.
Other than the AveryL7160.

When I try to print on a 6x6 envelope on my hp envy 110 printer it tells me it is the wrong size paper. No where is there a setting for a 6x6

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
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 do I print just one mailing label without running through an entire sheet time I print using an Epson LQ-590 and printing from the mail merge option in MS Word (MS XP)? In other words, when I print...

I assume you are using a sheet of labels, such as the typical 3 x 10 sheet. Word sets up the mail-merge document for printing the whole sheet, so if you print just one or two labels, you will `waste' the rest.
One way of using that sheet over is to create a mail merge that contains blank `dummy' addresses. It is rather involved and at best time consuming, and considered not worthwhile to save a partial sheet.
I service printers, and personally do not recommend that any label sheet be re-used. The printer curls the paper, in some cases fuses it, and causes the corners of the labels to be exposed, and possibly get caught in the printer (I have removed a lot of labels from inside printers)

Not printing from network.All cables connected. Also when searching for printer it still shows up.I've tried turning it off and on i printed an IP Config Page to check adress but all seems fine.

plug first printer on pc using usb cable, if no encountered problem setup next in network connection,
Step 1 To set up a network printer, it is important to initially take note of its manufacturer, model, and IP address. In some instances, network administrators assign a different IP address to the network printer instead of using the default manufacturer settings. Normally, these bits of information can be found on a sticker or label on the printer hardware itself. It is assumed that the necessary device drivers are present either on a disc or stored locally on the hard drive. Step 2 To begin the setup process for an SCO UNIX-based system, jump to Step 12. For computer systems using the Mac OS X Operating System platform, continue to Step 17. Machines running on Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Vista environments can begin setting up the network printer from the next step. Step 3 Click on the “Start” button and select the “Printer and Faxes” options if you are using Windows XP. Under Windows Vista, click the Windows icon, choose the “Control Panel” option, select the “Hardware and Sound” category and then click on the Printer module. Step 4 Double click on the “Add a Printer” option to launch the Add Printer Wizard and then click on the “Next” button. Step 5 In the succeeding window, make sure you select the “Local Printer” option and do not select the “Automatically detect…” feature. Click on the “Next” button. Step 6 Choose the “Create a new port” category under the Type field and use the “Standard TCP/IP Port” option. Click the “Next” button twice for Windows XP machines. Step 7 In the Printer Name or IP Address box, type in the IP address assigned to the printer hardware by the manufacturer or the name designated by the network administrator whichever is applicable. Click on the “Next” button and then the “Finish” button to complete the process. Step 8 In the Select the Printer Port window, choose the “Use the following port” option and make sure that the Standard TCP/IP Port is selected from the list. Click on the “Next” button. Step 9 Choose the appropriate name of the manufacturer and the model of the printer. If the device driver is present, simply click on the “Have Disk” button and then click on the “Next” button. Step 10 For the Name box, type in any name you prefer which will identify the printer hardware to the network environment. Also, specify if this will be used as the default printer of the network. Click on the “Next” button. Step 11 In the next screen, make sure that the “Do not share printer” option is chosen. Click on the “Next” button twice and click the “Finish” button to finalize the setup process. The network printer should now be accessible to all clients. Step 12 For SCO UNIX machines, the user must log in as root and execute the sysadmsh command. Step 13 Select “Printers”, followed by “Configure”, and then the “Add” from the “sysadmsh” option. Step 14 Make sure that the Connection Property should have the direct value. The Device Property must be equal to Hardwired. The /dev/null should be the value assigned to the Device name for a TCP/IP network.

How do I print address on the envelope?

This is a generic method to create envelopes on Windows XP with MS Word 2007. If you are using these two, it will help you. If not, there is much you can use in the solution to solve your problem.

If you are using Microsoft Office 2007, open Microsoft Word and click the Mailing (Mail merge?) tab. (Sorry, I use the French version, so I do not know exactly how the tab is called. In French it is publipostage). Click the foregoing tab. At the left of the menu bar you will see the image of an envelope and the word Create. Click the small down arrow under Create and click envelope. The wizard opens to allow you to configure the dimension of the envelope.


At the top you enter the the name and address of addressee and at the bottom the sender's name and address.
By clicking one of the two envelopes or the options button you can configure more (dimension, feeding face-up or face down, etc.)
Once the envelope is configured, you insert a stack of envelopes according to you printer specifications, and press the Print button.

Problem with printing from Tray 1

It can be set from more then one place. In MS Word you would go into the tools setting then choose the envelope drop down, select labels and in the options for the label you choose the format as an Avery Equivalent. That is where you can tell MS Word which tray to pull from. Also in the printer properties, under advanced options you can designate what type of paper is in each tray. Good Luck

Zebra Z4000 Stationery alignment.

Unfortunately, the guide under the ribbon spindle is the only real solution to this problem. I have the manual, but it's practically useless, and wouldn't have been able to help you regardless of how well it was put together. Try glueing a plastic or metal piece on the guide to make it taller, and make sure the guide is flipped up to keep the labels in.

Printer set up but will not print. newly installed printer will not print even a set up page. Will not print the sample page using zebra label designer.

Are you using thermal paer or thermal transfer?

Get one label and place a cigarrette lighter next to it for less than one second. If the label turns dark like supermarket receipts, then is thermal paper. (In this case let me know and we will try to diagnose what the problem is)

If the label does not turn dark at all, then you have the wrong type of labels for this printer unless you have the option to use ribbon.
