Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

2 Answers

Envelope prints the wrong way

I use a pixma ip4000. I am trying to print a #10 envelope but I can't get the printer to rotate the image so it prints correctly onto the envelope (which I have to feed short end first because it's too long to fit in the printer) The printer has an option for this size envelope, but I just can't figure out how to rotate it.

Thanks!

    Yes, it's printing perpendicular. Switching between portrait and landscape is not working, that's what's puzzling me. I've tried every setting I can find on the dialogue and the same thing every time.

    Are you saying its printing Perpendicular to the envelope instead of parallel?

This may be a very inconvenient solution but if your desperate then try it. The label you are trying to print : Take a snapshot of it using the print screen button on your keyboard and then paste it into paint. Cut out everything except the label then use the page setup feature in paint to make sure its in the right spot. Dont forget to choose envelope in the page setup and in the printer settings.

Just choose "landscape' from the printer properties instead of the default 'portrait'. Now adjust the margins, etc so that you can position the text exactly whre you want it

PS. Dont forget to rate this Fixya if the solution worked!

    Choose 'Landscape' orientation, and under Paper tab, select Envelope#10 as the paper size. Now put the envelope in narrow end first, with the flap facing upwards and on the left side.

    Kindly close this thread with a Fixya rating if the issue is resolved. Thank you.

How do I print an envelope on my Canon MP510?


Envelopes must be fed from the Auto Sheet Feeder. Use either European DL or US Comm. Env. #10-sized envelope.
Important :
  • You need to print from the computer to print on envelopes.
  • Do not use envelopes with embossed or treated surfaces, a double flap, pressure seals, or sticker flaps.
  • Select either DL Env. or Comm. Env. #10 in the printer driver according to the envelope size you are using. If you do not, the address will be printed in the wrong direction.

loadingenvsdiag.gif
1 : Retract the Paper Support.

2 : Load the envelope against the Cover Guide (the right side of the Paper Support).
Load with the front face UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left.
A maximum of 10 envelopes can be loaded at once.
*1 Printing orientation
*2 Make sure the flaps are folded.
Important : Make sure that the Cover Guide is set upright.

3 : Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope.

4 : Press the Paper Feed Switch so that the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp lights up.

5 : Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right.

In the printer driver, select 'Envelope' in Media Type, and then select 'DL Env'. or 'Comm. Env. #10' in Page Size.

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.

    Envelope Feeder is not accepting the command


    > Home > Support & Drivers > Knowledge Base

    Solution --> Phaser 4400 Printer: Printing envelopes

    Printing EnvelopesEnvelopes can be printed from the optional envelope feeder, the Multi-Purpose Tray, or Tray 1, 2, or 3.
    Guidelines for envelope printing
    • Use only paper envelopes.
    • Do not print on the back of the envelope.
    • Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces.
    • Keep unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid the effects of moisture and dryness, which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling.
    • Envelopes may wrinkle depending on weight and stiffness of the envelope.

    Many applications include a tool for creating an envelope document. For example, Microsoft Word includes an Envelopes and Labels feature in the Tools menu. Be sure to:
    • Select faceup.
    • Clear Clockwise Rotation.
    • Select the feed method with the image centered and the stamp on the envelope to the upper left.

    caution_image88x30.gif Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces; they can damage the printer. Damage caused by using unsupported envelopes might not be covered by your printer's warranty.
    note_image33x30.gif Note: The heat from the printing process can melt certain types of envelope glue. If the envelope flap sticks shut after printing the test print, tuck the flaps inside the envelopes when printing the remaining envelopes. Printing envelopes from the envelope feeder
    1. Insert the envelopes into the envelope feeder. For more information, refer to the Trays section of the Trays and Paper Guide on the Interactive Documentation CD-ROM.
      • Place the side to be printed faceup.
      • The top of the envelopes should be toward the left of the printer.

    PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


    On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
    Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.
