OKI C8800 Users... does your printer crease your transfer papers?

Using Image Clip 11x17...

Frequently... the paper comes through the printer with a slight crease on the bottom 5th of the paper...

... and of course, when this happens, that portion of the transfer is unusable.

Wasting more transfer sheets than I'd like to because of this.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Is the crease going down or across the page?
Are you using the face up output tray?

When it happens... the crease is always up & down (not perfectly), towards the center, and is on about the last 1/4 to 1/5th of the paper.

Yes... using face up output tray.

Have been racking my brain as far as trying to figure out why this does it... probably 1 out of 6 or 7 has "some" crease... probably 1 out of 12 affects the printing bad enough to ruin that portion of the transfer.

Luckily for me... I print a large front image on the top 2/3rds of the paper... and a smaller "across the back" image on the lower 3rd or 1/4th of the paper. So my workaround has been to print up sheets that have 4 or 5 of the "back image" to use as spares, when the bottom of a transfer paper is messed up.

... and not sure if this is related... but the input tray for 11x17" paper is horrible... I can't put 50 sheets in there and have it print all of them... the stack needs to be atleast half full to feed properly... and then I have to put additional papers underneath to prop up the transfers... or else it can't pick up the paper.

This does this regardless of weather I am printing on regular laser paper or laser transfer papers.

None of this... however... just started. It has been this way since I pulled the new printer out of the box.

What media type are you selecting?
Look and see if the crease lines up with
the rollers on the output of the printer.
