Printing envelopes

Product Name: VersaLink® C405 Color Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 7

When I try to use the by pass to print an envelope I got held for resources  No 10 env. it had an envelope in it already. I was able to use the bypass for labels.

Re: Printing envelopes

Hello Dart,

The Held For Resources message usually means the tray settings and the driver settings for that tray do not match EXACTLY, therefore it will not print. Here is some information on tray settings for your device. 

Thanks,

Re: Printing envelopes

 

I am astounded that Xerox has manufactured and offered a printer that is so quirky and unreliable.  No reasonable mnemonics, reboots, menu edits are able to have this printer print envelopes correctly.  It will not print No 10 envelopes from the "Bypass Tray".  It will print other paper types ie Legal, Plain, Executive A4 (requiring the draconian confirmation of the papaer size and type on the menu), but it will not print envelopes.  The firmware on this unit is an abject failure.  The hardware appears fine but what use is it if the firmware cannot properly run the unit.  I cannot regret the purchase of this unit more.  I thought I was purchasing something higher quality and more durable than a Brother printer for example.....  and the hardware probably is.... but at least the Brother printers work (for a while).
