envelopes print backwards

I have an HP 660C.  When I put single envelopes in to print, they now print backwards.  Usually you put the envelope in with tab up and to the right.  Now I have to put it in with the tab to the left in order to print properly.  This is no big deal but I wonder if it will eventually cause a jam.  I had the printer repaired recently (loud bangs when printing).  I don't remember if the envelopes have printed properly since then or not.  What caused this odd problem?

This used to work just fine.  I printed an envelope from both WordPerfect and MS Office and it did the same thing.  In WP you just type in the return address and the mailing address and the envelope prints out.  This used to print properly, now, the best way I can explain it is if you look at the envelope after printing, the flap is on the bottom instead of the top.  It's upside down.  If you feed the envelope in the other way, with the flap on the right, it prints okay.  I saw something on HP's site that this could cause a jam, that is the only reason I am concerned.  I don't see anything in the WP settings to change this.  I haven't changed any WP settings recently so I am not sure why this happened.

I wouldn't worry about it causing a jam. It seems to be working.  Just accept the fact that while most people have ordinary printers, your's seams to  be twisted.  I would accept it as a printer with character.  Hopefully, the rest of your equipment can live up to its standards.

I had to take the printer back into the shop because it was making the clicking noise again.  He had some spare parts from other printers, so just but my board into another printer.  We ran an evelope on his computer with my printer (the board at least) and bingo, backwards.  I will learn to like it.
