Xerox WorkCentre M118- media tray size wrong

Our tray 1 the top/bottom adjustment isn't centered, so the machine is not reading the right size paper (ie 8x11 paper is read as A4).
can I over ride the size choice, or (better) how can I take apart the tray to re-center it so it is correct?

    I found where the screw was under the metal plate, removed the gear, and re-alligned it.
    so far it seems to have fixed it.
    of course it took me 15 minutes to figure out how to remove metal plate.

Most likely you will have to replace the tray. There is a problem with those trays. Even when you have them set correct they mis read.
You can try twisting it, but they mis shape pretty easily.

    Good. more times than not those trays just cant be adjusted. What you want to watch for also it the paper size not being sensed. The indicator for the paper tray will just be blank and it is the finger in back not hitting the size sensing switches.

    The 118 is a very good machine, but the size sensing and the sturdiness of the paper trays is suspect.

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.

The printer trays accommodate most sizes and types of paper, transparencies, or other
specialty media. Follow these guidelines when loading paper and media in the trays:
- Envelopes, labels, and glossy paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) only.
- Transparencies and custom size paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) and Tray 2.
- Fan paper, transparencies, and labels prior to loading them in the tray.
- Use only paper envelopes. All envelopes should be printed single-sided only. Some
wrinkling and embossing may occur when printing envelopes.
- Do not overload the paper trays.
- Adjust the paper guides to fit the paper size.
- If excessive jams occur, use paper or other media from a new package.

Trying to change paper size from A4 to 8.5x11 on a Xerox Workcentre M123


  1. Pull out the paper tray.
  2. If necessary, slide the paper tray edge guides so that the guides are open.
    1. To adjust the side and rear guides, pinch the guide lever on each guide and slide the guides to their new position.
    2. To secure the guides in position, release the levers.
  3. Load the paper against the left-hand side of the paper tray. Paper can be loaded either short edge feed or long edge feed.
  4. If necessary, slide the paper edge guides so that they just touch the edge of the paper stack.

    NOTE: When loading standard size paper, set the edge guides onto the notches on the paper tray to match the paper size.

  5. Close the paper tray.
  6. Set the machine to detect the paper size automatically, or manually specify the required size.

    NOTE: Paper sizes detected by the machine vary depending on the Machine Administrator setting. See the Related Items below for additional information.

  7. If the type of paper has changed in the paper tray, then the paper type must be changed on the Control Panel as well. See the To modify the paper type on the Control Panel section below.
Normally just the guides need to be set correctly in the paper tray, The tray size sensing switched may be bad or the actuator on the tray may have slipped position.

Paper size mismatch is appearing on the screen


if that is when your printing you have to check and be sure the paper tray size is set correctly. You press the machine status button and make sure, tray 1, 2 and the bypass are set to the proper size paper.

Xerox workcentre M118 is having problem in pulling the paper to the fused roll.. what could be the problem?


Most likely one of the rollers in the paper path between the developer and the fuser is slipping. You are going to have to get a Xerox tech to take a look at it.

Tray guides aren't aligned in Xerox WorkCentre 7665


What is the model number of your machine? If it is a 118, 123/128/133 the paper tray most likely will have to be replaced. But it would really help to know the exact model number. You may have to change the size in the machine memory, which is also different per models.

Paper Tray won't read


That is a paper tray issue with that machine.
The tabs that are supposed to actuate the switches on the back of the tray either twist or get out of position.
You can try sliding the paper guides around, but more than likely the tray will need to be replaced.
