    All settings are for the MPF tray but when I go to print it keeps tells me to load paper in Tray 1. Everything used to work fine but now it always sets itself to tray 1 even tho I have already gone thru properties on any program I am trying to print from.

    My 5100cn was fine printing envelopes from the mpf tray. Now it suddenly won't recognize the tray. It keeps saying load MPF letter envelope. I checked all the settings. Could it be a hardware problem with the feed sensor?

Go to the printer web page by entering the IP address of the printer in an Internet Browser.
click Printer Settings menu entry
If the Substitute Tray value is not MPF Feed, click on the Printer Settings tab
Set the Substitute Tray value to MPF Feed
Click the button Apply New Settings, it will request the admin id & password for the printer.

In trying to resolve this issue, initially I set the Tray Settings to Panel Specified from Driver Specified at the printer's panel. Since the issue was resolved with this set, I just left it that way.

Check the paper TYPE setting for the MPF.

If you are trying to print letter size documents, but the paper type for the MPF tray is set to envelope, it will still prompt you to load paper in the MPF everytime.

You can use the menu to select settings for paper tray and type.

If the printer is hooked up to the network, you can also access the printers WEB page, by typing the IP address of the printer into the address bar of your browser.... no http: or www... just the ip addresss.
