Question about Dell W5300N Laser Printer
Display shows " Load MP Feeder Letter" but plenty of paper in trays. I have a Dell PCL Dell LAser Printer W5300 printer. Initially, students used manual feeding for transparencies' printing and finally, when you send a task to this printer, it rejected request and a alerting message came out that said " Load MP Feeder Letter".
This usually happens when the paper tray is set to the incorrect paper size.
This printer determines what size paper is installed in it by the little "fingers" on the left side of the tray. When you adjust the paper tray, it determines how those fingers are positioned, and therefore, how the switch reads the paper size.
If the tray setting is off, even by one little click, then the machine may read the paper size as other then letter. If this happens, you send a letter size job to the printer, and it doesnt think it has letter size paper, it will tell you to put letter paper in the MPF feeder.
If the tray is definately set to letter, but the machine still thinks it does not have letter, then the tray or the switch that reads the tray is defective, but 99% of the time it is just the tray is not set correctly.
The MPF door can be open or closed 100% of the time with NO EFFECT on how the printer works.
