Hello Wakemom,

 

I read your post and understand you are not able to print envelopes, you get an out of paper error when you try. Does the printer print 8.5x11 paper with an error?

 

This HP document: 'Out of Paper' Error Message and the Printer Does Not Pick Up or Feed Paper will show you to resolve the error generically.

 

Let me know if those steps have helped.

 

Thanks,

That is good that the 8.5x11 out of paper error is resolved. What application are you trying to print the envelope from?

 

This is a very generic HP document: Loading and Printing on Envelopes from the Input Tray in Macintosh that should ensure at least we are getting the basics done.

 

Once you let me know what the specific application is you are trying to print from, I may be able to get more information for  you.

 

Thanks,

Re: printing

What program are you using to print the envelopes? I suggest using Address Book to print the envelopes, it is very basic and should be under Finder and then Applications.

 

Let me know if printing from this works.

Re: printing

thanks so much for your perseverance and  help. I have no address book in my applications file. Is it something I "buy"?

Re: printing

My apologizes, Address Book is now called Contacts on 10.9.2.

Re: printing

I will do my best to show you how to use Contacts Smiley Happy

 

I found some great information on adding contacts for you: Basics of Contacts in OS X Mavericks his will show you how to get people and information into the Application.

 

To print the envelope:

  • Select the person / information
  • Click file and Print from top menu
  • Under style select envelope
  • Under layout select the #10
  • Under Orientation select correct view

You should be able to now print.

 

Let me know if this worked.


Thanks,
