I have a officejet pro 8500. I have a problem printing envelopes

I have a officejet pro 8500. I have a problem printing envelopes. my old 7600 did a great job. this new one prints the address first and the return address last causing a 1" plus space from the end of the envelope. I have tried almost every thing and can not get it to print the return address first. Please help.

Check two areas
1.. It could be the software your using to print the envelops.

2...It could be the printer driver.
Go on HP's site, and check and see if there has been any updated printer driver, or patch file. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: MP460 printer--problem w/ envelopes

You seem to have clogged nozzles/printhead. Take out cartridges, do a thorough clean down where cartridges sit, the printhead, even the roller as well. Run your printers own cleaning maintenance before you do it manually with cleaning solution. Problem should be gone when you reinsert cartridges. Don't froget to reset ink levels and cartridges. good luck!!!

Note:

  • Be sure to set the printer driver setting properly. If you do not, the address will be printed in the wrong direction.

  • It may be required to change the paper size option to 'Envelope' in File Page Setup menu.
    Note:


Printer Driver Settings:

1Select Envelope in Media Type.

  1. Select the size for envelopes.

    * In Windows, select DL Env. or Comm. Env. #10 in Page Size.
  2. * In Macintosh, select DL Envelope or #10 Envelope in Paper Size.
  3. Select Landscape in Orientation.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus NX400 While printing envelopes, I keep getting a black ink blot on the bottom right hand corner of the envelopes. It happens to about every 1 out of 4 envelopes. I printed the return addr

Envelopes can give all sorts of problems Back corner is flicking up. Try rolling the envelopes in the opposite direction to the "bowing" as they have been through machine once.

SOURCE: My HP officejet L7680 prints #10 envelopes

Please consult this HP support article for printing envelopes with your machine. Make sure you have allowed a sufficient margin from the edge of the envelope or the printer will be unable to print your setup. If you're using a MAC os, see here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

It sounds like you may have set a static IP address for the printer. I've seen the same thing. To solve this you can either change the setting back to DHCP or provide a static IP address outside of the range of your router's DHCP address list. The easiest would be to return it to DHCP setup. I would suggest a static IP address of 192.168.1.220.

Envelope jam HP Officejet 8500


Hi,

Try to print envelope through Microsoft Word

Steps:-

1) Click Tools , click Letters and Mailings and then click Envelopes and Labels .
2) Type the Delivery and Return address information.
3) Click Options .
4) On the Envelope Options tab, set the following options:-
  • Envelope size : set to match the loaded envelopes.
  • US only : if desired, select the Delivery point barcode to make it easier for mail sorting machinery to correctly route the envelope.
  • Return address : for Size 10 envelopes only, set the Return Address position .8 inch in the From left section.
5) Select the Printing Options tab and verify that the following settings are selected:
  • Select the Feed Method option that shows the envelope on the far right side with the short edge first.
  • Select Face down .
  • Examine the selected feed method image and verify that the envelope flap is on the left side of the envelope. If it is on the right, select or deselect Clockwise rotation.
6) Click OK and then click Print .

As envelop can not feed correctly every time, it depends on the weight, flap design, paper type and other factors & cause jam, To prevent those you can do.
  • Print envelopes at a higher quality setting so envelope is pulled through the unit more slowly. e.g:- Switch fast to slow mode or slow to best mode.
  • Tuck the flap inside the envelope before loading it into the printer.

Have a nice day...don't forget to rate the solution.
