You need to specify from your computer that you want to print to the MPF tray.

SOURCE: Printing Labels

The MPF is simply the "Manual Paper Feed".
Your printer is set by default that the MPF paper type is "plain paper". Since you are telling the printer that you are trying to print lables, the printer is simply telling you that you need to load the MPF with lables.

If you say "ok", the printer sould continue and print the lables.

If you only print lables, the you can change the default paper for the MPF tray to "lables", and then you will no longer be prompted to load the tray.

You have to feed the labels through the manual feeder.

SOURCE: HL-5370DW laser printer will not print labels.

It probably wants you to insert label sheet thru the envelope slot in the front, using the cassette peels the labels off of the sheet. If there is nothing in the front slot when you select labels it will show an error.

My Dell 3100cn will not print unless I press Init NVRAM and restart printer every time I want to print. This is annoying. Can you help? Thanks! Greg


this implies that you need to restart the printer again. However, do check to see if toner cartridges are seated in the proper position. Also ensure that they have been locked in. This is an error commonly associated with the Dell 3100cn laser printer.

Laser printer problem


For starters aftermarket cartridges are just not like the new ones from Dell. I quit using aftermarket ones long ago to save these headaches, with Dell you can get on Dell Chat and they will gladly help with issues like this. Try that with "Bob's Printer Cartridge and Music Rental" you won't get anywhere.
