    I have a similar problem with the DCP 7020, occasionally getting a "paper jam" message which I "fix" by opening and shutting the front of the machine.

    A more frustrating problem for me is getting standard size envelopes to print straight. I move the paper guides in to fit the envelope but as the envelope is pulled into the printer, the paper guides seem to open, allowing the envelope to slide in crooked. Any ideas?

Use the manual feed slot to print or copy on labels,
envelopes or thicker paper.

Slide the paper guides to fit the paper

Using both hands put the one sheet of
paper in the manual feed slot until you
feel the front edge of the paper touch the
paper feed roller.

Let go of the paper
when you feel the machine feed the
paper in a short distance.

How to load evelopes HL 2140

Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2
When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.

Open the back cover

Open the manual feed slot cover.

Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.

• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
• Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
• Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
• If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.

I just purchased a dcp-8085dn copier and wondering how do you print on envelopes, do you need a special tray to load your enveopes, if so, where can you purchase

On this machine, envelopes can be run thru the manual feed table. Just open up the front door with "Brother" on it and you will see inside of that door is the manual feed with the side guides that are adjustable. Just insert your envelope and adjust the side guides up against the envelope. Then when printing you have to specify the manual feed as the paper source and envelope as the paper type. Takes a bit of getting used to but is not to hard.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Double printing addresses on envelopes

You need to make sure you set up for envelopes in printing preferences as this makes the fuser a little hotter. If all is set up properly you need a shop to adjust the fuser temperature. The thick envelopes require more heat to bond the toner properly.

Print envelopes brother 2040

Ummm... Just go to the user manual. It will show you how to do this. It's really not hard. Manually feed the envelope into the printer (that thing on the front that you can play with and the sides get closer, and further apart at the same time) You'll need to have word set to print on an envelope. Again not hard just a little bit of know how. Google "word envelope print" and you will find instructions on how to set up word.
