Question about Canon imageCLASS MF6550 All-In-One Laser Printer
We just got this printer and it prints fine. But when I try to print labels through Microsoft Word, it gives the error "bell" and won't print. I have tried the side auxiliary tray, and the regurlar tray. Normally, I should be able to print the labels from my computer and the machine should know where to expect the paper to print it from. I am going crazy trying to figure this out and the manual doesn't say anything about this problem (at least that I could find). Please help... thanks!
We have found a solution. The multipurpose tray can only be set for one type of paper at a time, either labels, paper, or envelopes. If you go to print an envelope, it must be set to envelope (obviously). For labels, change the paper type to labels. I'll put a quick list of buttons to push...each slash meaning "press ok"...Press Additional functions/ #1 Common Settings/#10 MP tray/press ok/press ok/#1 Paper size/OK/Com10 (for envelopes) or LTR for a sheet of labels/if LTR is selected, choose option #2 for paper type and click labels. That should fix your problem! Then of course switch it back to envelopes if you need to. A pain, but doable. Another option is loading your labels into the main paper tray, but that's dangerous and tends to cause paper jams (according to Canon, though I haven't had any stick yet). Enjoy your printer (and your $150 cartridges). Any questions, email me Myschoolbus@yahoo.com

I have called canon with this problem more than once and they keep telling me that I am using a "paper" that is not supported. I finally gave up and ended up telling them that I am now going to use my cheap HP printer because it can do what it's suppose to.
