Sounds like the document that is being sent to the printer, or the one if pending prints are present, has a page size set to other than what the printer has its set to for the tray feed (or tray feed is set wrong), so it is defaulting to the Manual Feed for insertion of correct medium CTM (not sure if int. but thats maybe a country thing we use A4, ENV and B5 mainly

Another solution that worked for me (with a Brother 8840D) is to go to the Printer and Faxes applet. Under printer properties set the MP Tray to "Not Available". For my printer this setting is in Properties, Device Settings, Form to Tray Assignment.

SOURCE: CX11NF "Paper Jam" and Noise

Had the same problem, too. The grinding noise came from the gear of the loading mechanism, located (if looked on printer from behind) on the right side next to paper tray.
I had a problem with the paper loading, too.
That problem was due to a broken wire for the magnetic release of the loading mechanism, located on the right side, too.

My experience with this epson is, that most problems with it come from broken wires, e.g. the problems with the ADF I had, the problem with the magnetic release I had.....

If I hadn´t invested so much time and money in this printer, I´d rather scrap it immediately.

Tray1 Load LTR


Hi,

Hope this helps. Please check the printer properties before clicking Ok at print menu command. Now check the available paper tray handler. Try bypass, tray1 or MP tray.

Check also the default paper on Printer Menu command by pressing appropriate setup button. You can try also placing the paper on bypass try if available. The load LTR message means the machine waits a short bond paper on MP tray or on bypass tray.

My OKI C5500 will only print from the MP tray, and will not take paper from the bottom paper tray, even though there is plenty of paper in the bottom tray. Its giving me a 490 Error message, but I do NOT...


490 error means -

LOAD mmm AND PRESS ONLINE SWITCH 490: MP TRAY EMPTY

Print job from MP Tray has been received and the MP Tray is empty.

Load the requested media (mmm) in the MP Tray and press ON-LINE.

Check your print driver settings and see if your defualt try is set for the MP Tray. Also see if the page setup for the print job is set for MP tray.

Hi I get this 250.07 paper jam check mp feeder on Lexmark t644


Please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
