Question about Samsung SCX-4100 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

No paper error

My printer refuse to print declaring "no paper" although the tray is full. Last time I have sent it to a official repair shop and they returned it with a remark "work done: putting tray size to a respectiv paper size", which was rubbish becuse my printer simply stopped working in the middle of few pages print without me changing the size of the paper on the control panel or on the tray. Before I send it again I would like to hear some feedback from you.

Re: no paper error

Your unit has a bad paper sensor. It can give you one of two incorrect messages: (1) no paper when it actually has or (2) no paper on the unit but no error message. Genuine Service Centers can show you actual schematics and Samsung's Service Page on the Internet. Or better yet, visit and find an authorized center through the SUPPORT link.

Error C0...Xerox WorkCentre 5020DN Printer

C-0 declares that the size of the document you are trying to print is incorrect with the paper size you have in your machine's tray. To remove the error, press the red button on the control panel and check the size of the document within the printing properties. If the papre size of the document and the paper in the tray are correct then try to use another tray or bypass tray. If the problem still persists, call for service.

Virtually refuses to print CD's. Have re-whitened the blocks on the CD tray and still refuses, just "jams" every time

You will need to check the rollers insiode the printer and the full printer path, cd paper is thicker than standard paper and will take less to block it, also look for stickyness on the print rollers

"Paper Size Error: The paper size selected in the

Problem may be the paper tray. You don't say what kind of printer you have and my psychic abilities are nil.
The paper tray has sensors that tell the printer what size paper is in the tray. Make sure that the tray guides are set correctly.
By the way all paper trays are "in" trays.
Print out a config sheet to see what size paper the printer is set up for for each tray.

Printer is loaded with paper but get message

Although you really haven't given me enough information, I will posit and response for you.

A "Load Paper Error can be caused by the application telling you to change the "TYPE or SIZE" of paper that is in your paper tray.

For example, The application thinks you want the page printed on "Letterhead" paper, but it know that you have plain bond paper installed.

So you are sent a change paper type message.

The fix is to hit go and skip around that error.

The actual fix is to make sure that your printer driver, application and the printer are all set to the same size paper and type paper.

Printing problem with HP 2015 Laserjet Printer

If you have an adjustable paper tray, make sure that the tray is set for the right size paper. Also, you may have some type of sensor in or around the printer tray that tells the computer when the paper tray is empty. Sometimes these sensors get stuck and you have to free them up (very gentley).

Hope that helps - Ghost

Keep getting "11 load letter in tray 1" message

Are the print jobs being sent to printer all the same page size?

Are they all print jobs sent letter page size and your printers cassettes are set for A4 or something?

Your printer is asking for letter size paper, because any paper it has is not set to letter  and document that it is trying to print has been sent as that size.

Check what options you have on print driver on pc as far as Tray defaults, paper type and size settings

Check printer settings via its keypad as to tray defaults, paper size set for each tray and paper type, some printers have paper size switchs on their trays too.
