Re: Paper / Envelope feed
Follow the steps below to load envelopes into this product.
Lower the output tray and slide out the extension.
Move the feeder guard towards you.
While holding down its locking tab, slide the left edge guide so that the distance between the two edge guides is slightly wider than the width of your envelopes.
Load envelopes short edge first with the flap side down, as shown in the illustration.
Use the line on the feeder guard as the indicator when loading envelope. The right edge of envelope is aligned with the line on the feeder guard.
Set the feeder guard back.
* The folding quality and thickness of envelopes vary widely. If the total thickness of the stack of envelopes exceeds 10 mm, press each envelope in the stack flat before loading. If print quality declines when a stack of envelopes is loaded, load one envelope at a time.
* Do not use envelopes that are curled or folded.
* Flatten the envelope flaps before loading.
* Avoid using envelopes that are too thin as they may curl during printing.

Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2 When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.
Open the back cover
Open the manual feed slot cover.
Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.
Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.
• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up. • Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam. • Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam. • If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.
Envelpopes should be printed using the feed tray located in the front of the printer not through the paper cassette. Try this:
Follow these steps to print on envelopes from a computer running Windows.
For specific details on formatting text for printing on envelopes, consult the help files in the word processing software. For best results, consider using a label for the return address.
Click File , and then click Print .
The Print dialog box opens.
Depending on the software program, click Properties , Options , Printer Setup , or Preferences .
The printer Properties dialog box opens.
Click the Paper/Quality tab.
Select Envelope as the paper type.
From the Size drop-down list, select the applicable size. To create a custom size envelope, use the following steps:
On the Paper/Quality tab, click Custom .
Click in the Name text box, and then enter a name for the custom envelope size.
Click in the Width text box, and then enter the width.
Make certain the size is in inches. Click the Use Millimeters/Use Inches button to toggle between using millimeters and inches to define the custom paper size.
Click in the Height text box, and then enter the height.
Click Save .
Click Apply to save the settings.
Click OK to print the envelopes.
An error message might display asking to load an envelope into the manual feed tray. This might occur even if the envelopes are loaded. Make sure the envelopes are loaded, and then click Continue . The product will continue printing from whichever input tray contains the envelopes.
make sure you feed in the envelopes correctly and adjust the guides to fit the size of envelope you have in the manual feed or paper tray verses the size of envelope you choose in the print settings from the application you are using (MS-Word) e.t.c, also make sure that envelopes have the correct paper type and design for printing i.e( without metalic clips, not too thick to pass through the fuser)
size 10 is usually easy to go through for example.
Set the envelope size in the printer properties paper size list to A5 (5.83 x 8.27) which is only .08 inches wider than the short side of an A9 envelope (5.75 inches). The paper size sensor on the HP6520 printer must not be sensitive enough to tell the difference. I can print A9 envelopes just fine using the A5 setting.
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.
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.
