Printer won't pull from drawer 1

We recently upgraded to Leopard on our Macs and now the printer wants to pull from the envelope feed no matter what drawer we choose. I have tried resetting to factory defaults and that didn't work. Any suggestions? (We have lost our user guide)
Thanks

    It says drawer one. I took it off auto. Anything else to check?

  • Shewren Aug 13, 2008

    I think you are right. We used to use drawer 1 as manual feed and that doesn't seem to work anymore. I will try this today. Thanks.

You need to check the paper source settings in your printer driver (on your mac)

    You need to select tray 2, tray 1 is the manual feed (envelope feeder)

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.

My hp J4680 won't feed envelopes, the envelopes goes part of the way in and then fails to print


Hi

The envelopes are standard in size hence do not use any odd sizes. And also do remember that you make the required alignment and also the feeding directions and positions. If you print in Landscape then the paper is too short for the printer to pick. Hence use Portrait so your printer can sense the presence of the envelope

Need to pring envelopes on my konica Minolta hub 350 printer


Place envelopes in either drawer 1 (top drawer) or the by-pass tray. Generally, the envelope is placed side to be printed down. (On the printer you can set up custom envelope sizes.)

Select Print. Click 'Properties' for the printer. In the resultant dialogue window, set the printer to print to the 'envelope' print path.
Click OK, click Print. (test print direction first)
Check your printed envelope. You may need to change the orientation of the envelopes to print with the opening at the top.

How do you load an envelope in the printer?


Hi, Please follow these steps to load :-
1.Turn on your printer. Make sure it is in ready mode (green status light on) and it is not printing or running any other operations.
  1. 2.Determine whether your printer uses a top-feed or bottom-feed. Blank paper stands upright in a top-feeding printer and lays in a tray on a bottom-feeding printer.
    3.Load your envelope in portrait mode for envelopes that are 8.5 inches wide (standard paper size). Fold the flap down and place the envelope with the side to be printed on facing you. Load the envelope so that the side with the flap enters the printer first.
    4.Load your envelope in landscape mode for longer envelopes that cannot fit in lengthwise. Close the flap. Load the envelope so that the left side enters the printer first (the flap will be on your left).
    5.Set the paper guides. This guide is the sliding piece on your feed tray (it will usually be on the left). Slide it over so that the paper is held straight when it enters the printer.
    6.Set up your printing preferences. Go to "File > Page Setup" or access your printer’s properties page. Under orientation, select portrait or landscape mode depending on how you loaded your envelopes. If your printer has this option, select “Left” for bottom-feeding printers and "Right” for top-feeding printers
    7.Take a look at the "Print Preview" (usually found under "File" menu) and make sure everything looks good. Then print.
  2. Thanks!

Elite 20/600 not working with Snow Leopard


Snow Leopard broke Appletalk which is how many people connected a GCC printer to their Macs. You must reconfigure to LPD in the print and fax control panel and everything works fine. If you have difficulties please email jstrauss@gccprinters.com as we do not have this posted to the Web yet.

Airport Express, Bonjour Printing Does Work With Leopard


In the setup of the Airport network settings, you have to make sure that AppleTalk is actually turned on (or the box is checked). When using Mac's with Leopard and you use both the ethernet port and airport off and on, the OS tends to deactivate AppleTalk. Its not a set thing, just random.

Cannot print odd-sized envelope with 4250 LJ


I got to HP tech support, and they tell me that the envelope feeder is intended only for a few standard envelope sizes. If we're trying to use a different sized envelope, as in this case, it must be fed manually, and the feeder bin will not work. So that answers that. Thanks for the help, though.

Can't print to 1410 after I upgraded to Leopard


You need to update your printer software. Download and install from this link;

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-58037-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=219&product=441115

Once it is installed I suggest that you open system preferences (found by clicking the apple in the top left) and go to print and fax and delete and readd the printer so it will pull from the most recent drivers.
