Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

I cannot figure out where to load legal sized paper into our Dell 3130cn printer? Can anyone assist me?

It reads: You can print on a variety of paper and paper sizes with this device. You can print on cardstock, standard-sized, legal-sized or even envelopes. This printer came from our main office & we do not have a manual. Tried looking online but could not find the infor. Please advise. Many thanks!

The handfeed tray normally opens from the front by pulling down on it. You can load any type of paper in this tray. Good luck.

SOURCE: Envelope printing

Got a 3100CN and had the same problem but found that a) Changing paper size from the web doesn't work but b) Go to the printer control panel on the printer and use the menu to set the paper size for the MPF tray for FREE. Now your application under windows will overide the whatever the printer thinks and will print. Envelope via Word all work without problem. Suggestion . Configure two printers one B&W using tray one and one colour using MPF and you can now quickly select whether to use colour or b&w. Regards John N - N2UYI/G7LTQ

SOURCE: Printing small envelopes

In Word 2007, use the Mailing > Envelopes > Options section.

In 2003 I think it was under Tools > Envelopes & Mailings > Options.

There you'll be able to specify if the manual feed is top first or edge first, to the left, centered, or to the right, and how far over and down to place the address and return address.

After a few adjustment runs, it works great.

Hello, I have a question about the HP 1312 all in one printer. Does it print on legal size paper and where do I load the legal size?


Yes, it can print on legal size paper. Do the following:
Lower the paper tray, and if necessary, slide the paper-width guide to the outermost position.
Fold out the paper-tray extender to catch paper as it exits the device.
Tip: For best results when loading legal-size paper, fold in the paper-tray extender before loading the paper to avoid a paper jam.

The printer is asking to load legal paper in Tray 1 but legal paper does not fit in Tray 1. How can I redirect it to mfp?


Paper up tp 14" long will fit in the paper tray.

Remove the paper tray fully from the printer.

You'll see a blue tab at the rear edge of the tray, this releases the adjustment of the length of the paper tray. Adjust to the size you need, and replace the paper tray.

NOTE when new (and in the box), the printer has tape on the paper cover (at the back of the printer), make sure this has been removed, as it will prevent the paper tray being pushed fully 'home' when adjusted to a large paper size.

If you print a lot on both A4 and Legal size, maybe it would be worth buying a second paper tray and leaving them set for the different sizes you use.

Printer wont print. It keeps saying PC Load Legal. The printer has paper in it.


Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.

More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.

If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.

Keeps saying "Load Tray". Trays are loaded.


I just had this problem when trying to print legal size paper. I figured it out on my own. When you pull the tray out you will see a white tab thing sticking out on both side of the bottom of the tray. If you press these it will release the paper and bring it up to a slant. Push the tray back in all the way and it will print legal size. Who knew? It didn't say anything about this in the owner's manual.
