Printer won't print to tray 1, just the MP feeder

Our Infoprint 1532 won't print out of Tray 1 and keeps insisting that we load MP Feeder paper to get it to print. We'd like to be able to print out of Tray 1 but we can't get it to take paper from there. The tray is full but its not feeding for some reason. I've checked the settings and its set to take paper from Tray 1 and not the MP Feeder.

    do you feel it grab the paper if you help feed in the paper at the same time it is supposed to take it in or do you even hear the motor go that pulls the paper in ? or does it just go straight to saying load paper?

SOURCE: IBM infoprint 1422 won't feed through paper tray, only works with mp loader

Ok.... I have these printers at work...and i think i have figured this one out :
Under setup menu , goto configure mp , then switch the settings from cassette to manual. You see these printers are used at Hotels where the bottom tray is for legal size paper used to make key packets and the mp is used for regular sized paper printing reciepts....Hilton family hotels use them for example....the next thing I'm trying to figure out is how to set it so I won't have to push the go button every time I print something

SOURCE: paper source

I would suggest checking printer properties in the computer and ensure the paper size and source is Letter and set to Automatic Choose. Another choice may be to deleted the printer driver and re-install it. You can also go into the menu options until you get to Set factory defaults, press Select, then try the print job again.
I really suspect a program is controlling this from the computer.
To get a list of the existing printer settings, Select Menu and use the Right Arrow button until you get to Printer Menu Settings. The printed report should tell you what your actuall settings are. Maybe the default is set to Custom, instead of Letter.
The Set Factory Defaults option should fix most problems.
Good Luck John Moser

Why is my infoprint 1532 saying load mp feeder?


Driver is telling the printer to print single sheet. Load a single sheet or fix your driver/software settings.

Message window shows "load mp


The printer tells you to insert a letter format paper in the mp (multi purpose) feeder (the manual tray).
If you press the GO key the print probably proceeds with print job (if has the paper loaded in mp feeder)

I keep getting a Load MP Feeder Letter message. I can't clear what to do?


MP Feeder refers to Multi Purpose Feeder or Manual Paper Feeder or just plain bypass feeder. There should be a door that folds down to gain access to your MP Feeder tray. Try loading letter size paper on this tray.

Make sure you have selected the multi purpose feeder (front of the printer) in the driver, not the Manual Feeder.

The manual feeder will prompt for paper on each page. All you have to do is to press the "Go" button.

Tray selection issue: Documents may be setup to print to the MP feeder, (multipurpose feed, not manual feed), but the printer will only pull from tray 4. I'm not sure why, earlier this week it would o


The usual reason that the printer will ask you to load paper into the MPF is that the green paper guides in the paper tray is not clicked in the right position. It only needs to be slightly out of position to give the wrong paper size info to the printer. The easiest way to confirm if the guides are correct is to print the Menu Settings Page. Check that the paper sizes listed in that report are the same as the actual paper sizes in each tray. If it's different you need to adjust the guide correctly. It's remotely possible that the sensing switch is faulty but it's more likely that the paper tray guide isn't latched in it's correct position.

IBM Infoprint 1532 Tray Selection


For tray linking to work, both Paper Size AND Paper type must be configured the same for both trays. You probably have the paper sizes the same but types could be different. The is no setting to make tray linking work.. it will do it automatically if the above settings are correct.
