I just installed a Photosmart Plus B209 a-m. Have used a few times for regular print jobs; however, when I try to print address labels, the blank sheet won't feed into printer. what can I do??

I think I am seeing a pettern here in the foums. Today I was looking for why I was having a similar problem with checks not printing in a C7250. I will guess that your labels have some pre-printed information on them and the printer is rejecting it as an invalid paper size.
See these similar issues:
I think you should try the white label trick sugegsted in the canaray thread. Place the label over some of the pre-printed areas on your forms and see if that helps.

I had this same issue and found nothing that worked on the forums. I print silver foil address labels and they are necessary for my business. I found a solution that has worked 100% on my HP 309a ever since.
Go into your printer "properties" and choose a "paper type" that is similar to the labels you are using. For the foils I print in photo quality and set it to photo paper, for white labels I set it to plain paper.
For some reason I think the hang up is in the printer trying to "automatic"ally sense your paper type (I could be way off but it seemed logical). Ever since I started to manually enter the paper type, I have not had one single issue and I LOVE the quality of the photos.
Hope this helps someone out there with the same problem because in the beginning I could not have been more frustrated. Even brought one back and exchanged it because I thought there was a defect lol.
Good luck everyone Lisa

Not that anyone should have to go through all of this to make a stinking printer print labels, but I found this solution to work for my HP 7000 E809A:
- Remove the "Negative Space" part of the label page - everything but the actual labels
- Print setup is "Glossy brochure"
- Paper type is "Other specialty paper"
- Print Quality is "Normal"
I found that I had to go to the print preferences each time I wanted to print a page of labels (not when printing multiple pages in one print job) and it worked.
Hope this helps.
