Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

Hi. HL2140 Brother Printer gives the error light when I start to print Avery 5160 labels. I first try to print on regular paper, only to remember what side of the paper is being printed on. Regardless, it displays the error light whether I have regular paper in it or not when I try to print. Keep in mind, this only happens when I print labels, while printing Microsoft Word & Excel documents is excellent. The printer previously printed labels without flaw (about 5 sheets) then quit and the red error light came on without displaying any message on my computer. Any help you give me is appreciated. Thanks, Phillip

I agree with pastorm. In Excel go to View and select Page Break Preview. Once you are in this view, move the blue line on the right to the left to keep the unwanted area from printing.

SOURCE: Printer Jam - when i put a sheet of Avery labels, printer jams

I had the same problem and was able to get around it by changing my paper setting within the Printer Properties page from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper."  Hope this helps!

When printing labels (Avery 5160) the labels start being shredded half way through and then the printer jams.


Have you setted up in the printer driver to print on label? the printer will automatically adjust the internal parts for printing on a higher density paper!
If you done it gently remove the Duplexer unit from the behind of the printer and chech for pieces of paper or everything could cause the paper jam!
Hope you found it useful, for futher questions i'm here :)

Problem printing labels


These labels are supposed to be for laser or inkjet . A inkjet basically sprays the ink to print. A laser deposits plastic powder and then uses heat to melt it or fuse it to the paper. To get a good inkjet print you need a softwaer paper, to get a good laser print you want a harder paper and a glue that can handle the heat. I had a quick look at customer complaints on that product and you are not alone. Either the printing is coming off (inkjet) or the label is coming off inside the printer.

One of the other problems with labels in lasers can also be how the paper is printed. The paper can be rolled around a few rollers and drums. This action can be pretty close to how you peel the labels off of the backer sheet. Add a bit of heat to make the glue loosen up a bit and you get your problem.

Setting to thicker paper should have helped but the best thing you could do is print it flat. Most laser printers have a back tray that is usually closed. When opened the tray lets the paper come out without having to go around rollers. If your model doesn't do that about the only thing I could suggest is to try to print the labels on a cold printer. So that would mean one page or so at a time with a wait for it to cool down. You could also try a differant brand or another avery type but you may end up with a label collection if they prove to have the same problem with your printer.

Lexmark won't print on Avery labels


The printer is expecting the label stock to be loaded into the manual feed tray, not the regular paper tray. If it does not sense anything in the manual feed tray it will not continue. If you are loading the stock in the tray, it may need to be pushed further into the try to trigger the sensor.

Printer Jam - when i put a sheet of Avery labels, printer jams


When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to www.avery.com and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.
