Whenever a print job is sent to my dell 3100cn laser printer, ?Load tray 1? appears in the small window of the printer. I loaded the tray several times but it doesn?t work. Please guide me through the...


You sent a paper size different of the requested by the printer. Just load the requested size or delete the spool.
Some PDF downloaded from internet has A4 or 8,5x11", maybe is requesting one of this sizes.

If you can not delete this message, delete the spool using the printer manual in the control panel of the printer.

To align the print cartridges from the HP Photosmart Software
1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.
2. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings.
3. In the Print Settings area, click Printer Toolbox.
NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog
box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click
Printer Services.

the button next to OK to scan the page.
When the On button stops flashing, the alignment is complete and the page can be
removed. Recycle or discard the page.

Load paper


Hi,

To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

Tips for Avoiding paper jams
  • Do not use extremely smooth, shiny, or coated papers unless they are specifically designed for HP Photosmart printers.
  • Do not use multi-part forms (such as duplicate or triplicate forms).
  • Do not use torn, dusty, damp, wrinkled, or curled paper.
  • Do not use paper with bent edges or paper that will not lie flat.
  • Make sure that the OUT tray is installed correctly.
  • Make sure that the paper adjusters are not pushed up so tightly against the paper that it is bending in the paper tray. The paper-width adjuster should be placed against the left side of the paper. The paper-length adjuster should be placed against the end of the stack of paper.
  • Do not put more than 100 sheets of 75 g/m2 paper (or a 1/2-inch stack) in the paper tray.
  • Do not keep more than 50 sheets in the OUT tray.
  • Do not use paper longer than 356 mm (14 inches).
  • Do not mix paper types in the paper tray.
