Question about Dell 1720dn Laser Printer

Open Question

Need to print 4x6 label sheet with Dell 1720. The Avery 5452 label sheet contains 3 4x1.5" labels. I downloaded the template 5075 for MS Word for the Avery site. But the printer doesn't recognize the small sheet and only prints one of the labels and recognizes as 8.5x11 page. How can I add the 4x6 paper size to the printer configuration?

You might try setting up Word for a 'custom' label since it offers that option.
I've done some strange labels by directing Word via that feature.

SOURCE: Printer prints first page with strange nonsensical characters

I would move the printer to another computer. See if the problem follows. I have seen the issue a few times with issues in normal.dot but also in other office applications.

Problem I'm fighting with on my 1720 is its printing extra pages between pages. basically print a 5 page document and get an 8/9 page final with the extra blank pages. Think its a user error but could be machine related. going to try it on another PC and see what happens.

Step 1 : Change the print settings
The print settings of the HP All-in-One can be customized to handle nearly any print task.
Before changing the print settings, decide whether to change the settings for the current print job only, or to make the settings the default for all future print jobs. How print settings are displayed depends on whether to apply the change to all future print jobs or just to the current print job
Change the print settings for all future jobs:
In the HP Solution Center, click Settings , point to Print Settings , and then click Printer Settings .
Make changes to the print settings and click OK . Change the print settings for the current job:
On the File menu in the software program, click Print . Make sure that the HP All-in-One is the selected printer.
Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on the software program, this button might be called Properties , Options , PrinterSetup , or Printer .
Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs.
Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Click Print or OK to begin printing.
Step 2 : Print with 210 x 297 mm (8.5 x 11 inch) labels
The HP All-in-One can be used with any software program designed for printing.
This document contains basic information about using the HP All-in-One to print on labels using a software program. For additional information, such as printing a poster, printing multiple pages on a single sheet, and more, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP software.
Follow these steps to print on labels:
· Make sure to load labels in the input tray. Always use letter or A4 label sheets designed for use with HP inkjet devices (such as HP inkjet labels).
· Make sure the labels are no more than two years old. Labels on older sheets might peel off when the paper is pulled through the HP All-in-One, causing paper jams.

  • Fan the stack of labels to make sure no pages are sticking together. Place a stack of label sheets on top of full-size sheet of plain paper in the paper tray, label side down. Do not insert labels one sheet at a time.
    1. On the File menu in the software program, click Print . Select the HP All-in-One as the printer. To change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
    2. Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs.
    3. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Click Print or OK to begin printing.

This can be done with settings through your word processing program. Assuming you are using Word:

I am trying to print labels and they keep coming out off center


You most likely need to download the proper template from the manufacturer of the labels your using. Look on the package of labels for the web page for them if you don't have the package the company name and template required is usually printed somewhere in the border of the label page. For example Avery avery.com. If the template is not listed you can search the library of templates for one that looks like your labels. Download the template. This should solve your issue of improper centering of the label. Your likely currently trying to use one of the templates supplied by Microsoft, but they rarely work with most labels.

Avery Ink Jet Magnetic Sheets - 3270


It worked fine for us on an Epson. We printed about 40 sheets fed one at a time. Do not stack the sheets in the feed hopper, they stick together because of the magnetism.

There is no template because the material is not die cut. It is just full 8.5x11" sheet size.

Avery laser addressing labels l7160


What software are you using? I use Microsoft Word to print my Avery labels, and quite often have to tweak their templates by simply adjusting my margins on the page. I do a 'select all' and then add one tenth of an inch at a time until the proof sheet looks just right. If the labels are a bit off, you can also adjust the pitch in the label options dialoge.
