Printer will not print onto Avery Clear Label paper
Every time I try to print onto Avery Clear labels using the HP C8180, I keep getting a message stating I have my photo paper on the wrong side, and to turn it over. I've even tried playing around with different settings, but to no avail. In fact, I'm having the same problem with half fold envelopes for blank greeting cards. The cards print fine, but when I try to print an envelope it tells me I'm using the wrong paper.
Is there a certain setting I should use, or is it just impossible to do the most basic things with the C8180? I had a PSC500 for 7 years, and never had any problems. Thanks in advance for any help.

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 :)
You will have to use software to make the labels...like Microsoft Office Word, Open office Writer, or Microsoft Works. In MS Office Word (2003) go to tools->letters and mailings -> envelope and lables. Create the label you need.
If you use open office, go to File->New->Labels and create the label you need.
After which, you put the paper in the printer and print them out. May want to check out the size so you make sure it prints correctly.
your printer does not support CD label orinting. though you can still print CD labels but with some softwares. there are HP printers that prints CD labels. Check them out.

These printers comes with a special software that enables them print on CD labels. Also try to get their softwares and see if you can interface them with your own printer and them print. Else you may have to get one of these printers that support CD labelling. Cheers!
Does it still print on plain paper? Check to see if you are missing one or more labels as they may have come off and onto a roller or other part. I've found that label sheets with any labels removed prior to printing are always prone to loosing labels in the process of traveling through the printer.
The only way I could get round it was to type one page of the labels, then print on plain paper. Check with label size then go back to screen and individually change the labels that were misaligned. Then when I printed on to a label page it was correct. Time consuming but at least I didn't waste any labels that way, only paper.
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.
