HP 1022n Printer.... When I print lables I have to sit next to the printer and press the go button after every label is printed. A message pops up that says the printer is out of paper, but I have a whole stack of labels in the tray. I tried changing the settings for labels, but even then it would not auto feed. Plain paper is not a problem, only labels.

Re: Labels will not auto feed
Have you gone into your print driver and changes the settings there?
I am not sure with your inormation if you have changed the settings on the printer or in the driver.
What it sounds like is happening is that there is a mismatch between the printer and computer.
It may even be set so that it is looking for lables in a bypass tray.
Somewhere there is a mismatch in information as to where the labels are loaded.
Start at the driver properties page and confirm every step in your setup.

Try this: But first print a configuration report.(contain IP address) Configuration Report Release GO after LED begins blinking. Now: Reset the factory default settings (cold reset) Turning on the printer while pressing the GO and CANCEL JOB buttons restores the factory default settings. 1 Turn off the printer. 2 Press and hold the GO and CANCEL JOB buttons. 3 Turn the printer on and continue to press and hold the buttons until all three LEDs are blinking. 4 Release the buttons.
you need to calibrate. hold the feed button down intill it flashes 4 times in a row and the quickly let go. it will feed some labels to calibrate and should stop at the tear off. you also have to set label size in the driver to keep from losing calibration.
Note: If printing in Direct Thermal Mode, default the printer first (4 flashes).
1. Load the labels and ribbon (if used) and close the printer 2. Turn on the printer power. 3. Allow the printer to feed or error out. 4. Press and hold the feed button until the green status LED flashes once, then twice. Release the feed button. 6. The printer will set the media sensor for the label backing being used and then automatically feed until a label is positioned at the printhead. 7. A profile of the media sensor settings (similar to the example in Figure 1) will print. Upon completion, the printer will save the new settings in memory and the printer is ready for normal operation. 8. Press the feed button. One entire blank label will feed. If this does not happen, try defaulting (Hold the FEED button until it flashes 4 times)
Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels: 1. Make sure that printer power is off. 2. Press and hold the feed button. 3. Turn printer power on. 4. When the status light blinks, release the feed button. 5. The printer advances the media to measure and verify the length of individual labels or tags. The printer then prints a status summary and remains in diagnostic dump mode. 6. To begin normal operation, tap the feed button. The printer prints "out of DUMP" and advances a label.
I had this happen when I changed from one label to a different size label. It needs to be calibrated. There are several types of calibration to do to the S600. Here is the solution that worked for me.
Check the position of the laser Media Sensor (figure 13).It may need to be moved to match the type of label that will be printed.
For CARD labels, the media sensor needs to be set at the edge of the card so it can “see through” the notch that is cut on the edge where the perforation is.
For STICKY labels, it can “see through” the backing which shows between each sticky label, so the Media Sensor could be set anywhere for it to work, but will probably be set towards the middle.
Set to Factory Defaults.This is so that all of the following steps will work.I do not need to change the steps based on the type of mode that printer is set up in because it will erase all that by setting it to the factory default. (See figure 14 for buttons)
Turn off the printer.
Hold the FEED and PAUSE buttons down as the printer power is turned on.
Press MODE button four times.
When the defaults are saved to the printer, the CALIBRATE, DARKER, and POSITION lights will all flash.
Test to see if the calibration is set correctly for the label.If not, proceed to the following steps.
Do a Manual Calibration.
Turn off the printer.
Hold the PAUSE, FEED, and CANCEL buttons down as the printer power is turned on, keeping the buttons depressed.
This will run through several labels and do some printing.
Release all three buttons after the CALIBRATION light comes on and then goes back off.
Put the printer into Auto-Calibration Mode.
Turn off the printer.
Hold PAUSE, CANCEL, and MODE down as the printer power is turned on.
