I get a solid 1/2 inch black line on the left side of the page.

Most likely a leak. Possibly during a cartridge change, a good amount of ink escaped & you have to wait till it dries out. A worse scenario would be where the jet is constantly leaking because of a bad seal somewhere in the ink feed line. A bad seal break the air pressure balance between the tank and the head.

The printer cannot be set to a page length when printing from a dos program. The page length is incorrect but changes with every print even though the same file is printed

Prints from DOS programs do not have a "page length" setting of their own, nor do dot matrix printer have a page length of their own.

Page feed is achieved by sending a special control code (^L), and the meaning of ^L can be set through specific escape codes that the DOS program has to know.

My guess is that you need to tell the DOS program the page size in lines or inches, and maybe instruct it to send a page feed command after each page.

You can try directly programming the printer, but if the DOS program is sending out the wrong codes, this is not going to help. Anyway, here goes. Good luck!

How to stop calibrating soo much?

There is no way to get around the recalibration for different sizes of label, you must do it at every different label height, The callibration only sets the label height/length, so try doing the same length labels in sequence.

Print wedding announcements and the print is not straight

Card stock on an HP can be a nuisance, due to the paper feed path. The stock has to curl around the platen.
Some things to check: Make sure you are telling the print driver you are using card stock. It should be in the printing preferences as paper type. The printer will respond differently, knowing it has the heavier paper. Also make sure that your paper guides are adjusted to fit the smaller stock. Just putting in 5.5 x 8.5 paper into an 8.5 x 11 tray may cause it to skew.
I am assuming that you are already telling it to print high quality, as it is for a wedding announcement, but make sure that you are. Slowing down the paper feed speed by putting it into high quality mode can help.
Your printer is an older model, so it could be that the rollers are wearing down, and it just can't feed the last bit as well. You could try to print it in "landscape" mode. Turn the paper 90 degrees in the paper tray, so that the 8.5" is the feed side. This will allow the printer to have a better grip on the paper as it goes through. A word of caution with this method, though. HP's have a 1/2 inch margin at the bottom of the paper where it can't print. Turning the paper 90 degrees will force you to have a side margin of 1/2 inch. Currently, your bottom margin has to be 1/2 inch. I don't know what your layout looks like, so I don't know if you can turn the paper.
If you are the one getting married, the congratulations, good luck, and mazel tov! (Have to cover all the basis).

How do i make double sided copies for my HP 2840

When you call up your printer (usually [Ctl][P]) tell it to print even numbered pages only, but in reverse order, This means the last page to be printed will be page 2, and it will be face down on the top of the pile (blank side showing) Take the printed sheets and rotate them so the top (head) of the sheet is feeding back into the machine, with the blank sides up. Now call your print up again and tell it to print the odd pages only. The first sheet to be printed will be page 1 which will print on the blank side of page 2, and all the rest will follow in sequence, with the correct sides up. Works every time. The print control is part of the Windows system, so your application should provide the full functionality.
