This printer will not print your label sheets out of the main tray. You have to feed them in via the manual feed on the front because the printer recognizes that it is printing adhesive sheets and would probably peel the stickers or something if feeding out of the normal tray. Hope this helps

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO PRINT MORE THAN 1 ENVELOPE AT A TIME. DO LETTERS AND ENVELOPES ONCE A WEEK BUT THE PRINTER WOULD ONLY PROCESS 1 ENVELOPE AT A TIME AND I HAD TO DO THAT ONE MANUALLY.


Hi there !

For printing bulky letters or documents of the same format, I suggest you use the MS word mail merge document. You need to set up the mail merge document and the data of the file. For examples, the list of names, addresses telephone numbers and others should be input to the envelops.

Here's how to create mail merge document file.


1. Open a new blank MS word document or if you have a format already in a MS word format, just use it as default letter.

2. Go to menu bars (Home, Insert, Page Layout, References, Mailing, Review and View) and choose Mailing.

3. From Mailing, click on select recipients, choose use existing lists and find the excel document files that stores all the information like list of customers, company names, addresses, telephone numbers and others.

4. Open it and select table will appear and just click ok to merge it automatically to your default envelope.

5. Now you need to set up or format your envelope. from the Mailing menu, Insert Mail Merge Field will appear and click it to display the headings of your data source. Put the headings wherever you want.

6. After that, press preview result to display the datas. Save your work and it is finished

Printer does not print


hold down the feed button until both light flash off and let go. This will reset the printer. This should stop it from feeding multiple labels.

WHEN I HIT PRINT NOTHING COME OUT BUT WHEN I SHUT DOWN THEN I START IT UP AGAIN THE PRINT COME OUT WHY


check and make sure the printer is "online" - look under the printers and scanners applet
Make sure spooling is active
This sounds like the print buffer is not active so the print job is being written to your hard drive instaed of the printer buffer.
Send the document to the printer then double click on the print manager icon in the status area of the screen ( bottom right hand corner) you should see the document in the list and if there is a problem, scroll along to the right to read what is happening with the document.
If this list is full, cancel all documents and clear this list.
Then reboot your machine to clear the printer buffer and the printer should not print anything on reboot.
Then print the document again but only once, then recheck print managers list.
Most printing issues can be seen here in print manager..

let me know if this helps

Printing Labels


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.

Pause light blinking, machine beeping, no printing


Probably needs a good cleaning - with a vaccuum and some compressed air.

Dot matrix (impact) printers usually have a couple of optical sensors - disks with holes in them - to let the printer know where the head is, how fast it's moving, if it jams, etc.

If there is too much dust, dirt, or bits of paper interfering with the beam of light passing through the rotating disks, most printers will stop and indicate some sort of error, rather than force the motor - which may damage the plastic teeth on the gears.

Sounds to me like the word doc's page size is not set to the same as your printers tray.

In word, file , page set up. page size/paper size is set to "letter" in US I think is standard, it's A4 in Oz

On printer driver check page size setting too

Contral panel, printers and faxs, RIgHT click on brother printer icon, properties, printing preferences, page size
