Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?

I hope this helps.

PRINT RUBS OFF


When printing envelopes ensure you set paper/media type to Envelopes, and feed via tray 1/bypass . Paper type setting sets correct fuser temp, the fuser is the hot bit at the rear that "melts" the image into the paper.

If paper type is set correctly then I recommend you change the fuser unit.

Ensure envelopes are standard type. ie you are printing on paper envelopes

Make sure that you have tray 1 set for the correct paper type. Leaving the paper type as unknown will result in very slow printing as the printer will assume that it might be printing on heavy media, envelopes or the like.

4200 PRINTER Only wants to print out of tray 1


First you need to verify that tray 2 will print from diagnostics test. Use the arrow keys to scroll down to diagnostics and press arrow key, then use arrows move to paper path test and press arrow again. The default paper path test is tray 2 single copy so just select print paper path test and see what happens. If printer prints from tray 2 then we know tray 2 works and that means you either have a print driver that is forcing printing from tray 1 or your settings on the printer for tray 2 are not correct for what you are printing. Check to make sure the paper size shows correctly and make sure that the switch on the right side of the paper tray towards the back is set for standard and not custom.

I can't get anything to print from tray 1, the manual feed. I'm trying to print envelopes and they keep printing on 8.5x11 paper from tray 2. If I put envelopes in tray 2 it won't print


Have you already tried this? After you click print and select your printer, click properites and select your paper from 8.5x11 to Envelope.

Re HP Laserjet 4P after inserting envelope to print, upon giving PRINT command, printer will not print and indicates PAPER JAM. However, there is no real paper jam. No problem printing regular 8 1/2 x 11...


Most likely a bad pick up roller these machines will give a jam error if the paper or envelope is not picked up. Try cleaning the roll for the tray you are having the trouble with if the condition improves you have found the problem.
Hope this helps

HP 3600dn Duplexing Issue


Manual 2-sided printing. Most of the supported media sizes and types listed for printing from tray 1 can be manually duplexed. Do not use the 2–sided printing feature on transparencies, envelopes, or labels.

I found this note in the 3600 service manual. Maybe it will help.
