I am trying to print directly on to envelopes, but everytime I hit print I just get an error message saying there is not the correct type of paper in tray one, when the whole time I am trying to tell it to print from the bypass tray.

First recommended that you use the bypass tray on the right side, also before placing the envelope in the bypass tray send the print job over first, the screen will say replenish paper then go ahead and place the envelope on the tray. and let it take it or hit the start button Ensure you select #10 commercial media and bypass tray in your print driver preferences. May also want to have tech come out and look at the tray and run MAX and Min. Adjustments.
To get rid of error, unplug machine. Sett. the correct paper size ( size of envelope ), paper type (envelope ), both on printer properties ( when you prompted to print ) and on machine ( when you put envelope on bypass, machine auto ask you ). Do not forget to tell printer that he needs to take paper from bypass ( printer properties )
You need to make sure that your print sriver setting match the setting on the printer itself.
If setting are changed on the printer itself to envelopes then when you go to print click preferences button on print screen and look for a place to change paper type (usually defaulted to letter size.) Change paper type to envelpoes and click ok. Click ok again on print screen and it should print correctly.
Paper types must be configured the same on the device as well as the print driver installed on the computer.
Have you tried this procedure? ---------------------------------------------------------- Loading Envelopes You can load plain envelopes into the paper tray of your Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One printer. Important Do not use envelopes with cutouts or cellophane windows. 1 Remove any other paper from the paper tray. 2 Insert one or more envelopes into the right side of the paper tray with the print side down and the envelope flaps on the right, pointing left.
3 Squeeze the paper-width guide and move it to its right-most position up against the envelopes. 4 Leave the paper tray open while the envelopes are loaded.
If you have and it's not printing correctly, there is probably a problem with the document you're trying to print.
I had the same problem with my 7260 and I finally changed the paper type from automatic to plain paper. Go to either Properties or Preferences in your printer set up window. Somehow this turns off some sort of sensor. It might work for you, too. To the person who is using the Hallmark program, that is where I first encountered the problem, I then tried to print an envelope from Word and the same error message came up. I found this solution online from someone using a three in one printer/fax/copier so I tried it and it worked for me, too! I hope this helps......
marglet, Turn-off and unplug the printer for a couple of minutes...there may be improper setting stuck in the printer memory. then plug it in and try to print the envelopes..if that doesn't work...Make sure there aren't any custom print settings causing this. Lastly...Try updating the drivers.
