The problem that you are experiencing is caused by the way the text is formatted in most word processing documents. By default envelopes are printed not in black, but a dark gray. This confuses the printer and causes it to use the color cartridge to process gray instead of using the black cartridge.

You can fix this problem with one of two ways:

1. Click on "Start", "Control Panel" and click on "Printers and Faxes." Right click on the "Lexmark Printer" icon and select "Properties." Click on "Printing Preferences." Go to "Quality/Copies" tab and select the option "Print color images in black and white."
2. You can also change the color of you text to a true black in your word processor. This will require you to resort to the word processor's documentation and help files.

Both of these settings will cause your printer to use the black cartridge instead of the color. If either one of these solutions solves your problem, it means your color cartridge needs to be cleaned or replaced. If you feel that the color cartridge should not be out of ink, please follow the steps given below:

Clean Nozzle Procedure:

1. Go to the "Solution Center" and click on the "Maintenance" tab.
2. Select "Clean to fix horizontal strips."
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.

If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzles" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:

“Wicking” Procedure:

1. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge from the printer.
2. Get a damp paper towel.
3. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
4. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
5. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
6. Snap the cartridge back into the printer.
7. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge installed."
8. Repeat the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" procedure listed above.

If this procedure does not help, please let us know so that we can continue with technical support.

Can you print address on envleope


Yes you can print an address on an envelope. Do you have Microsoft Office? If so, click on new office document and click the tab that says Letters & faxes (for versions before 2007) and choose the label wizard. When the window opens, click the tab that says envelope instead of label and follow the prompts to type in the information you want to print on yoru envelope.

If you have Office 2007 - or newer, click on new office document and then choose blank document. Click on the tab at the top that says mailings and then choose envelope and type in the information you want to print on your envelope. Then click on file, and print. You will need to load your envelopes in the printers tray and put them in the correct direction according to the settings your machine requires. You might need to waste a few envleopes until you get it right.

My lexmark will not print envelopes. IT will print labels. Does this have anything to do with Windows &?


Both my Hp1220 (which is pretty old) and my Epson C62 will print envelopes,so I'm sure yours will. You need to go into the print preferences (possibly advanced) and set the SIZE,not paper type to the size envelope you need to print.I have the options of #10,DL & C6.
I think those are the standard sizes.
Let me know.

Can't address envelopes using Microsoft Word 2007 & Windows 7


Excellent question. Wish I had the answer. I have the same problem with the MFC-7440N. I hook up my old HL 1240 and it prints them fine, so I now use two printers - one for envelopes and one for normal printing. I contacted Brothers and was told that it was not the printer, but the Application. If so, then why does my old Brothers printer work? They do not have the answer.

How do I print envelope with address?


This has to be done through an application like Microsoft Word. For instance on Office 2007 you would select the Mailings tab then click on Envelopes to specify the address etc. In previous versions you would have had to click on the Tools menu then Letters and Mailings then Envelopes and Labels. Once you've got all the information you want printed on the envelope Place the envelope in the printer in the exact configuration shown on the printer. Should have a feed on the side, look for the envelope symbol. Print and you'll be good to go. (:

Letter size envelope does not fit into the paper holding tray


Hi cmwww920,

Usually letter envelopes are insert long-way into your printer. I recommend using the Microsoft Word envelope wizard to print Sender and/or Recipient addresses on envelopes. Here's how it works:

1) Launch Microsoft Word.
2) Click Tools > Letters and Mailings > Envelopes and Labels...
3) Type in what you want to see on the envelope.
4) The default feed direction is shown in the lower right corner of the dialog box. To change it, click Options and select the Printing Options tab. Adjust the settings as you please.
5) Click OK to exit the Options Dialog Box
6) Click Print (in the upper right corner of the "Envelopes and Labels" dialog box.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

I have a hp 2849 all in one printer. When I print envelopes they print blank.


When you print an envelope, let the printer print on a regular sheet of paper to see if it's printing in an area not in line with the envelope.

This example is from Open Office. Microsoft is pretty much the same. What this is showing is the position of the envelop feeder so you know which one to select so that it can print correctly. The software must be set up correctly. The arrows show the path of the paper feed.

To find this in Office, click on TOOLS, LETTERS AND MAILINGS, ENVELOPES AND LABELS.

Click on the envelope in the FEED box.

This window will show the feed position of the envelope using an 8x11 as a point of reference.
