We are trying to print labels from the bypass feeder for the DP-C262. No matter which way we feed in the labels, they are printing the opposite (for example, we say portrait, they print landscape). Very frustrating. Any suggestions.

Re: Problem Printing Lables from ByPass Feed
Just a thought. On some features, so that you can distinguish between a fax and print, copy and print, so that the orientation of the paper comes out different for print,fax,copy etc, there is a rotate image 90 degrees setting.
Not exactly where that would be on that model, but sounds like that is a real possibility on your settings.

I gather that you are trying to feed through the bypass tray? if so does it feed normal A4 paper?.If it feeds normal paper then it sounds as if the feed tyre is slipping and requires cleaning.I would suggest that it is cleaned anyway and also check that there is no obstructions in the feed path.
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.
you may have to set the lables up on the bypass or manual feed input as the machine has to compensate for the thickness of the labels and slows the print process down. check the display on the copier it may be asking to load labels in the bypass
something else you might try is taping the card to a full-size sheet of paper, so the printer can push it through with ALL the rollers at the same time. not all printers have a roller all the way across, so index cards get snagged by one side, and they'll walk to the opposite side while they're printing.
Hi nwillett, Yes and no, sorry if that doesn't make much sense. For years Minolta recommended Avery labels, but these days they recomment labels manufactured by Howard Smith Papers, their website is http://www.hspg.com/ The thing with labels is always to use the one your copier service company suggests. Otherwise they'll invalidate you contract and you'll be liable for callouts and repairs caused by using Avery labels. However, Avery labels are good and I have experienced very few problems with them I pressume you using the lables in the correct orientation and also using the manual bypass to feed them. Regards Taminol
The MPF is simply the "Manual Paper Feed".
Your printer is set by default that the MPF paper type is "plain paper". Since you are telling the printer that you are trying to print lables, the printer is simply telling you that you need to load the MPF with lables.
If you say "ok", the printer sould continue and print the lables.
If you only print lables, the you can change the default paper for the MPF tray to "lables", and then you will no longer be prompted to load the tray.
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)
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.
