Question about Brother MFC 7840W Printer
Do you have a picture or something that allows a person to follow the directions for printing envelopes. I opened the back of my printer for manual feed but nothing happens. I need a better explanation on how to feed an envelope into the printer. Most printers allow you to print envelopes by sliding the paper holder to the size of an envelope. This printer just says manual feed, one person posted something about a tray and opening the back, what does this mean? Are they saying the manual feed is the tray and by opening the back it will feed it into the printer for an envelope? Please someone help me understand how to make this work.

SOURCE: Can't print from the MP tray?
When you print labels or envelopes you need to select the correct tray from the print menu. (File print or ctrl P) or the printer will think the normal paper tray is being used.
You can force the printer to change the tray after the print has been sent by pressing the continue button on the printer, just make sure that the normal tray has no paper in it.

Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?
I hope this helps.

I would recommend you re-orientate your envelope going into the printer by placing it flap up, right flush but with the widest side in fist (or horizontally as per your description). Below is my attempt of the envelope as it should be placed in the paper tray (all in bold characters): _________ |\ /| | \ / | | `...' | |__/___\__|In your document editor it should be orientated like a normal document.Best luck,Ed(In case the drawing is not very clear, click here an the way to put the envelope IN the aper tray should be like the 1st drawing)

As envelop can not feed correctly every time, it depends on the weight, flap design, paper type and other factors & cause jam, To prevent those you can do.
