Cannot print odd-sized envelope with 4250 LJ

The printer has an envelope feeder attachment. When we print on standard-sized envelopes, it works fine. We are trying to print an odd-sized envelope (Avery A7). The feeder will not grab the envelope; it doesn't even try. In the Envelope Size option on the printer, we have it set for "Any Size", as there is no "A7" option there. Any ideas?

We are using standard size envelopes and the default used to be drawer one. Now if we have envelopes in the manual feed it wants to pull from there no matter what we select.

I got to HP tech support, and they tell me that the envelope feeder is intended only for a few standard envelope sizes. If we're trying to use a different sized envelope, as in this case, it must be fed manually, and the feeder bin will not work. So that answers that. Thanks for the help, though.

My hp J4680 won't feed envelopes, the envelopes goes part of the way in and then fails to print


Hi

The envelopes are standard in size hence do not use any odd sizes. And also do remember that you make the required alignment and also the feeding directions and positions. If you print in Landscape then the paper is too short for the printer to pick. Hence use Portrait so your printer can sense the presence of the envelope

HP Laserjet 4200 with optional Envelope Feeder will not automatically pull #10 envelopes from Envelope Feeder?


Use a damp lint free cloth and clean the feeder rollers.
Print out a configuration page to make sure that the printer recognizes that the feeder is installed.
Usually the envelope feeder problems stem from age and/or dirty rollers.
Make sure that your software app sees that the feeder is attached.

I have an envelope feeder that came with my old LaserJet 4 many years ago. I replaced the LJ 4 with an LJ 4-Plus and tried to use the envelope feeder on it. I get an immediate error message "EE...


My suspiction is there is a tab on the tray that triggers a switch telling the printer what type of tray has been inserted. Your old tray is likely different from the Plus 4 tray and the printer knows it.

Printing Envelopes


There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

My printer willnot print envelopes.It states paper size or type is incorrect. On all sizes.


Some printers have an extra feeder under a door on the front or side which allows you to insert an envelope. These types usually will not rcognize an envelope when inserted into the sheet feeders.

If you are using Microsoft Word, you may be able to do it from the "Tools"/"Envelopes & Labels" tab, but you more likely need to find the envelope feeder on your printer, if it exists.

Good luck !!

How to print #10 Envelopes


How to copy/print onto envelopes.
Solution
Konica Minolta does not recommend copying/printing onto envelopes, asthe MFPwas not designed to run envelopes. Additionally, envelopes do not meet the
standards set for paper specifications. Their multi-layer make-up, adhesive, and odd size make it unreliable and potently damaging to the MFP.
