Someone has sent a print job from a computer to the copier with an odd paper size specified. Go to Job status, under "print" highlight the first job in the que and delete it. (if the job was sent more than once you will have to repeat. ) Check the document and print settings of the offending document.

How do i print on cardboard (heavy paper card)

The mx2300n only supports up to 209gsm heavy card. You must make sure that your heavy card is not over this rating.
Set the bypass tray as 'Heavy' by clicking on the trays on the main copy mode screen, select type & size for bypass. Select heavy, and Auto AB as this will allow the tray guides to detect the size of your paper. Load the tray with up to 20 sheets of Heavy paper.
Open your document, select Print, then properties. Under the 'paper' tab, select paper source as bypass tray, and paper type as heavy (if you miss one of these steps, the ,machine will ask to load paper due to size or type mismatch).
That's pretty much it.

Cannot change paper type to "plain", stays on "Extra"

Change the tray button key or switch on the panel. It wears out with time and cannot be detected even if pressed.

How do i print 6 3/4 return size envelopes on a sharp 2600n

You have to select the Manual Feed Tray by touching the picture of the copy machine on the LCD screen. That will then show you the paper trays. Touch the paper type soft key for the Bypass/Manual Feed Tray and then select envelope. then press ok a couple of times till you are back to the main screen. Put your envelopes face down on the Bypass/Manual Feed Tray. If you are printing from a computer do the same thing after you go to printing preference/properties.

How do i use the auto configuration facility on a sharp mx-2300n. I have saved the configuration on the server but when I connect to this printer over the network, I only get Factory Defaults under User...

While at the printer settings page of the copier on your PC under printer configuration there is an automatic configuration tab. Once you press this it will ask you to check the boxes with the arrow . The paper is set determined by the copier itself. You may need to check your copier settings to make sure it detects the correct paper in the tray. Also it is not recommended to install this way mainly because if the customer doesn't want to print color they are not able to change the printer condition settings at the individual PCs. So individual install is recommended.
