Toner Does Not Adhere to any Type of Labels

This nachine cannot print on any type of label that I have tried and have the toner adhere to the label.

Tape must be immediately afixed to the label covering the print so that it doesn't fall off or smear.

    Dear Nitro,
    Is it necessary to perform these steps everytime I use labels?
    (This is an office machine and user guides/instructions were not supplied.)
    Thank you.

You need to specify that you are using labels in the printer properties, so the printer raises up the fuser temperature for printing on labels.

If you have the user guide, instructions are on page 28, chapter 5.

If not, here's how:

1. Open the straight-through output door.
2. Open tray 1 and adjust the media guides to the width of the media.
3. Load media in tray 1. Make sure that the top of the media is forward and the side to be printed on
(rough side) is facing up.
4. Open the printer Properties (or Printing Preferences in Windows 2000 and XP).
5. On the Paper/Quality tab or the Paper tab (the Paper Type/Quality tab for some Mac drivers),
choose the correct media type.

    Yes, this has to be done each time, otherwise the toner will not be bonded to the labels.

Printing avery labels


You need to check the driver settings inthe printer properties and make sure that you are selecting labels as the paper stock. Often times this will adjust the fusing temperature so the toner is melted thoroughly on the label. You may also check the toner..some compatible brand toners do not do well on Avery labels.

Hp laserjet 4 plus label stuck and prints with smudge now


Where is the label stuck? If you are lucky and it is stuck on the toner cartridge's image drum, just replace the toner cartridge. Do not, I repeat, do not try to remove the label from the drum and continue to use the toner cartridge. The reason being that there will still be adhesive on the drum that will cause toner to stick to it and cause big bad defects on the printed page. Additionally, if you try to remove the adhesive with lighter fluid, rubbing alcohol, or other substance and a cloth/paper towel, the drum will be scratched and therefore damaged, causing defects in the printing anyway. Just save the trouble and replace the toner cartridge.

If the label is stuck elsewhere within the printer, be very careful about removing it, especially pay attention to whether any adhesive stays behind once the label is removed. Depending on where the label is, it might just be better to replace the labelled part.

It is highly recommended not to use labels inside laser printer precisely because of this problem. If you elect to do so, however, make sure that you use only laser labels. Inkjet and dot matrix (aka impact printer) labels are unacceptable. The reason being that laser printers generate about 350 Fahrenheit degrees (177 Celsius degrees) of heat which weakens the bond between the wax paper and the adhesive of the label. This causes the label to have a tendency to peel off in the fusing assembly and/or output rollers. Also the printer has a very "curvy" paper path and all that flexing of the paper tends to cause the label to want to leave the wax paper backing as well. All it takes is a loose edge of the label to find even the slightest surface to which to adhere and the deed is done: the label will leave the paper and become a part of your printer, giving you the headaches that you now endure. If you have a future need to print labels, I would suggest doing so with either a dot matrix or inkjet printer.

How do I print labels with my HP Officejet J4580


You follow the instructions in your word software and feed the labels face down. Make sure you have labels specially made for inkjet printers. If you use other types of label forms, the ink may not adhere.

I have Avery Gloss labels for laser printers and have a Ricoh laser printer. The black toner is adhering to the labels and the other colours are not


Look to your menu for a paper setup and find the one for label or card stock and choose that. Thicker paper or labels require more heat to fuser the toner to the media.

Dell 3110cn Color Laser Printer Certain colors will not adhere to the page when printed on heavy paper. Combination of green/black wipes off the paper when rubbed.


Either the paper is just too thick for the printer to fuse the toner correctly, or you've NOT selected the right paper type (in the printer driver options.

If you're just printing that same as you would on ordinary A4 paper, the fuser can't get enough heat through the thick paper to fuse the toner.

May be a wrong toner problem if you've done this successfully before, but only had this problem since changing toner cartridge(s)

Toner does not adhere to paper


You have got a warped fuser this is the hot thing that cooks the toner onto the paper. Your best trying to locate a fuser unit for the machine this will solve your problem.

Paper is crumpled, toner is not adhering in certain areas


The fuser is shot....this is the unit that uses heat and pressure to fuse the toner to the page. It is primarily when the pressure roller wears that you get crinkling and bad fusing, but I'm sure the upper sleeve has seen better days as well.
These days it is (sadly) cheaper to replace this printer with a new little HP -only around $100 or so.

Printing avery labels


You need to change the paper settings from plain to something thicker. The toner is not being heated properly for it to fuse to your paper. It needs to run at the correct speed and temperature in order to adhere properly.
Set it to a heavier stock.
