Tips for a great answer:
inspect the paper trays to make sure they are
not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only
one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the
problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
Check that the type of paper being used falls
within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed
for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers.
High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers
If someone has recently printed labels on this
printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck
inside the printer.
Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper
you can also you a light blower or vaccum to clean the printer be sure to remove the ink catridge from the printer before using them
after doing so click the printer icon in the task bar and click open it and delete all the files in them
then click start settings click printer and faxes then make your printer default then switch of the printer and the computer remove the power plug and the usb cable wait for few minutes and replug them then restart your computer and the printer then click start setting printer and right click the printer and click properties in the printer properties click the print a test page and your printer will be ready to print

Prepare your printer. Make sure the power is on and the drivers are installed correctly on your computer.
Wait for printer to stop. Make sure your printer is idle or ready or waiting for paper to be loaded. Don't load labels when your printer is already printing or running an operation.
Prepare your labels. Make sure they are all facing the same way and are right side up. The label side should be face up. Many labels have an up and a down as well, look for a "this side up" or "load this way" indicator. Or take a look at the print preview before you print and make sure your labels will be fed correctly.
Find the correct paper tray. Some printers have manual feeds and automatic feeds. Refer to your manual to find out which one you should use for labels. If you are going to use the manual feed, follow the manual's instructions. However, most printers will use the automatic feed, so read on.
Align the paper guide. This is a moveable piece on the paper tray. There should be markers for the width of your paper. Standard pages are 8.5 inches. Move the marker so your labels will fit.
Load your labels. Place your labels in the tray so it touches the immoveable side of the paper guide. Slide the paper guide over to touch the other side if it is not already close. Do not bend the labels by pushing in too far.
Find the paper thickness lever. Try looking under the door that lets you change the cartridges. Or search around on the back or side. Check your manual, too.
Set your paper thickness level. Usually you'll use the standard size. However, your printer may need to use a thicker setting. Check your manual.
Change your media type. In your printer settings, find the media type option. You can access settings by clicking properties or settings on the print dialog right before you print. Select "labels."
