Is it just with your envelopes? or all your pages that you print?
Usually, when a Laser printer "Smears" it means that the FUSER is bad.

If you do a websearch for "LJ1300 fuser" You should be able to find them for sale. or, check your local Office Supply Store.

Sometimes envelopes are TOO THICK for the fuser to handle at the speed that the printer sends them through, and the toner doesn't have enough time to bond to the envelope. There may be an envelope setting with your printers software, or, you might want to look at the back of the printer.
The door will open. Looking for blue or green or orange or yellow tabs with arrows on them, or paddlock icons. Maybe even an envelope icon. Sometimes you have relieve the fuser tension for envelopes.
If you still have your HP Documentation, check that.
HP has pretty good support on their site.
Q1334A Is the TRUE Model Number of your printer,
Its on the back of your printer.

I hope this helps you.

How to remove & clean the Print Head


1.Turn on the printer. Open the cover to expose the printer carriage. Wait for 3 seconds and unplug the printer from the electrical outlet. The print cartridge will stay in place by unplugging the power.

2.Remove the ink cartridge from the carriage by lifting up on the tab holding each cartridge in place. Remove the ink cartridge by pulling it out and up.

3.Use a lint-free cloth to gently wipe the copper contacts on the bottom of the ink cartridges. If the residue is stubborn and won't wipe off, use a cotton swab dipped in bottled water to remove the residue by rubbing gently. Do not wipe the nozzle on the ink cartridge; wipe only the flat contacts. Lay the cleaned ink cartridge on it side on newspaper. Do not stand it upright with the copper contacts touching the newspaper or the ink will drain out.

4.Use the lint-free cloth to wipe the contact points in the print carriage. If the residue won't come off, use a cotton swab wet with bottled water to remove the residue. Wait 5 minutes after you have cleaned the printer contacts before replacing the ink cartridge.

5.Place the ink cartridges back in the printer cartridge. Snap down the top to secure the cartridges. Plug the power cord in the wall outlet. Close the cover. The printer is ready to use after running through the initialization.

What's the best paper to use in printing postcards?


I've been printing postcards for like five years now. And based on my experience, the best way to go about that is to print postcards using sturdy cardboard stocks coated on both sides for a high-gloss surface. This medium is best for shipping and for advertising purposes.

I need to print 6"x11" postcards with some protective coating on it?


From what I know, most digital printers can't do that. Digital printing requires heat that may damage the coating. If you want, you can just buy ready to use papers with coating from the store and print them using your digital printer. But the other way to go about is to print postcards from a reliable printing company like PritnRunner. They do postcards using matte aqueous coating that protects your print from smudges and fingerprints. Here's their site: http://www.printrunner.com/postcard-printing.html

Hi Robyn
PRINTING ON REVERSE SIDE OF PHOTO PAPER

The only realistic choice here is for you to chalk this episode down to experience, buy some new photo paper of the correct type to produce your preferred outcome and then do another print run of the postcards.

I always advise, when printing on exotic papers and even when producing ink intensive printing on ordinary paper, to print a single test copy first and then study the result, rather than completing the entire print run in one go.

Because of the lack of absorbency on the reverse side of the paper you used, I would also recommend temporarily putting the printer settings back to regular paper and printing a test page, so the micro-nozzles on the print head are cleared of any excess ink. If the test page is not perfect, then also run your printer's Print Head Cleaning maintenance tool. Then reset the printer back to photo printing for another run at your postcards.

Good luck.

I hope this helps.

Ink from my deskjet 5650 smears off my glossy postcards.


Hello there jbaerpynes.

You must use HP branded glossy paper in this particular printer as recommended by the manufacturer. Because HP ink is much finer than most other inkjet printers, the ink sometimes does not set in properly on generic papers, especially glossy ones, and can smear right off.

Try new paper and get back to me. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to comment on my post. If I helped you, please give me a positive rating.

Thanks.

I 450 printer sends command to print but, no print on paper, paper goes through the printer as tho' it is printing but no print


Check your ink cartridges. Even with ink inside, the heads could dry up and not allow new ink to penetrate. Take a dry cloth (rag, not something you wouldn't want stained) and gently wipe it over where the ink shoots out of the cartridge. If you barely get a streak on the cloth, try dampening up the cloth and gently wiping the ink cartridge to see if it loosens up the ink flow.

If there is already plenty of fresh ink coming out of the cartridge, you might have a problem that isn't worth fixing. Repair costs compared to buying new are very similar these days.
