Re: Card Stock will not print
1-try both sides of the card stock
2-try the manual by-pass and see it that works
if it works then there could be a problem witht the main board
when you change the setting it changes :the temperature, the pressure on the rollers, and a few other thins, because of the wieght of the paper.

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-
1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate. 2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.) 3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'. 4) Enter 5x7 for height and width. 5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.) 6) Select, Print. 7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'. 8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'. 9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.
Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.
Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print it.
1. Prepare your doc/file for printing. 2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated. 3. Change printer setup to feed from rear. 4. Print.
Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."
I looked up the user guide at Dell's website and looked up printing cards.
The print side of the cards faces down.
The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.
Apparently you need to feed the card stock one page at a time into the printer on TOP of the paper exit try (The card stock will feed in from above the normal paper load try [remove paper from the paper tray] and once printed come back to the same spot.
I m not sure what the specification of the paper type you are using however if you are using card stock than you should use manual feed Tray and in the printer driver properties you should select paper type as Card-Stock to make sure there is no print quality issue.
Most laser printers automatically adjust not the temperature so much as the speed at which the media travels through the fuser when thicker stock is used.
The important thing here is to make sure that when you are using card stock that you insure that the printer is set for the correct "PAPER TYPE" from the tray you are using.
When the paper type is set to card stock, you should notice that the media will print somewhat slower, thus giving the fuser the ability to achieve the correct fusing temperature through the thicker stock.
