Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Printer has suddenly stopped printing envelopes

I have been able to print envelopes in the past. Now it won't print them. I use MSOffice 2000. I have tried printing on regular paper. The printer feeds envelopes and paper properly, sounds as though it is printing, yet everything comes out blank! I have uninstalled and reinstalled both MSOffice and Lexmark X5150 All-In-One to no avail.

Re: Printer has suddenly stopped printing envelopes

Just fixed it thanks to Lloyd at Go to Technical Support > LIVE CHAT. To print envelopes all I needed was to check the print in "Black" only button. Under Quality make sure the Print Color images in Black box is checked, select Apply and OK.

Brother MFCJ870DW Cuts Off/Chops Off/Truncates Left Side Return Address By About Half An Inch On #10 Com Envelope, Suddenly Started Happening

Check carefully that you have specified it to use the # 10 and that the format does not include a wide margin. If that fails, try printing the Return address 'right justified' and see what happens.

Stopped printing envelopes in proper direction

What software are you printing from? It sounds more likely to be software causing the issue.

I can't get anything to print from tray 1, the manual feed. I'm trying to print envelopes and they keep printing on 8.5x11 paper from tray 2. If I put envelopes in tray 2 it won't print

Have you already tried this? After you click print and select your printer, click properites and select your paper from 8.5x11 to Envelope.

I was printing envelopes yesterday on my HP 1200 -- they printed perfectly - - no wrinkles, no track marks or anything. Then today I went to continue my printing and all of a sudden the printer is bending...

It sounds like you changed the weight (thickness) of the envelopes being used or they aren't being fed in right.
Make sure the paper guides are snug against the envelopes.
Try rotating them 180 degrees (in which case, if that works, you may have to print your labels upside-down).

If this doesn't help, then my best suggestion is to get Avery address labels and print on those and stick them to the envelopes.

The only other thing I can think of off the top of my head that would cause that is a sudden change in humidity, but that's not something we can control!
