I have plain paper in machine and haved used this paper at least 2 cases (not reams)without problem. The message on the printer states Paper mismatch. Replace transparacy paper with plain paper, Then press enter. I also cannot get the printer to print an alignment sheet either. It states the same problem. I have tried to clean rollers and replace cartridges. Any suggestions.

I had this same problem. Was trying to explain that this printer printed on both sides of paper when I push the tray or whatever it is on the back of the printer. Something snapped and it has been printing since. I must have moved that thing on the back at some point and it wasn't totally connected.

If you have the install disk, go to the program for your printer and uninstall it. Then restart the computer, it should recognize it again. Re-install the printer and it's program. That usually solves most problems when a gadget goes nuts.
Also keep a can of air around, blow out insides; sometimes there's a photocell with dust on it.

Kyocera not feeding paper.


Open paper tray, locate the feed roller (small rubbery wheel) and moisten a cloth. Gently clean the roller to remove build up of paper dust from it.

Also worth using is some "anti static foam cleanser" on the cloth to help deep clean the rollers, or the pre-moistened "Screen wipes"

Also check there is nothing blocking hte paper path, remove paper cassette, and toner catridge (and drum if I recall correctly) and see if you can feed a sheet of paper MANUALLY from tray up into the "imaging chamber" where the toner lives. If this feels too stiff, there could be an obstruction in the way, fragment of paper scrunched up after a REAL jam, or fault sensor arm.

If you find something and can remove it, reassemble, and test

Lexmark e352dn-load manual plain letter message


In most cases if the printer is asking for an unexpected manual feed it is because the paper tray is not set to the right paper size or type. To set the paper size to the most common size and type (letter size plain paper) use the following instructions.

1. Press the Menu button.
2. Press the right arrow key until Paper Menu then press Check Mark.
3. Press the right arrow key until Size/Type then press Check Mark.
4. Press the right arrow key until Tray 1 then press Check Mark.
5. Press the right or left arrow key until Letter then press Check Mark.
6. Press the right or left arrow key until Plain then press Check Mark.
7. Press the back button until Ready is displayed.

This will set up your printer tray for plain letter paper and should relieve the manual feed error unless yourcomputer is sending other paper size/type settings.

When I pint pictures it seems to not "seal" them down, I get blotches and globbs onink on other parts of the page and the folloing pages.


Are you using plain 20lb paper? If you are using anything thicker or heavier than plain paper then you must use the bypass feed and tell the machine you are using cardstock, thick paper etc. I have the same machine and have had the same issue when printing labels. Works perfectly if you tell the machine what paper you are printing onto.
Now if this is not the case then you might have an issue with the fusing unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Printing to 4 x 6 paper


Hello oyam26,
For any paper mismatch issue, first thing you do is try to set the paper type to plain. This will fix the issue in most of the cases.

gud luck

I need your help please.


Make sure you are using the paper that come under the specifications of the printer (102 x 153 mm (4 x 6 inches) for a Photo Paper). Though you are using the correct paper and you are getting the same message, then just set the paper type as "Plain" and try to print from the photo paper. It works in most of the cases


gud luck

Paper Mismatch


Dig through the menus on the printer and make sure the paper type for the tray in question is set to plain. Sounds like someone set it to transperency and forgot to change it back.

'Load plain paper' message


Make sure that you have set the same paper type on both the printer driver and on the printer itself, using the on-printer menu. When I get this message, I usually had forgotten to change the paper type on the printer.

Paper Tray Settings


You have Auto Tray Switching acticated (ATS). Unless you specify each tray/paper with different settings it will switch.

Go in to the utility menu and you can find this in the paper tray settings area I believe.

You can turn this off completely to avoid this in the future.

If you look around you can even just tweak the settings for this, but in your case i would just shut it off.
