Lexmark 734dn error is "load more paper and continue"


Check if the correct paper type and size is set in the printer settings. Also check if the paper guides are set to the correct size in the paper tray. Sometimes, the paper sensors will not detect the correct paper if the guides are set to the incorrect size.

Tip

Incorrect paper size while copy in progress for Canon iR2016 series.


Regarding pick-up error "change paper size"or "incorrect paper size" while copy/print:

These may do the trick:

Point of problem:
Paper Pick-Up Assembly
Problem:
Prevention of incorrect Paper Size Error or Pickup Assmbly Delay Jam (0104) upon Cassette Pick-up

Behaviour of copier:
When making a pick-up setting as from the Cassette and starting Copy, "incorrect paper size" error or pick-up delay
jam (0104) may occur.

Possible reason:
When considerable amount of Paper Lint is attached onto the Vertical Path Roller , the feeding power is
undermined and the paper feeding is delayed, resulting in "incorrect paper size" error or "pickup assembly delay"
jam.




Servicing work:
When the foregoing symptom occurs, be sure to replace the 27T/50T Gear [old type] with the 33T/50T Gear [new
type] and the 29T Gear with the new type simultaneously.

Affected machines are:

Hp j6480 printer wont print keeps sending a paper mismatch message


Paper mismatch errors occur because the product scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the product, the product reports a 'Paper Mismatch' error. The message saves paper and ink by preventing print jobs from accidentally printing on the wrong paper. For example, the print job might be for a 101.6 x 152.4 mm (4 x 6 inch) photo, but there is letter-size paper loaded in the product. The error message displays to make sure that ink is not wasted on the wrong paper type. try this out , disable the automatic paper type sensor.
  1. Open the Print dialog box.
    1. In Word 2003, click File , and then click Print
    2. In Word 2007, click the Office button (c01850900.gif ), and then click Print .
  2. Make sure that your product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then clickProperties .
  3. Click the Features or Paper/Quality tab.
  4. In the Paper type drop-down list, click Plain paper .
  5. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.
  6. Click OK again to print the current print job.

Paper mismatch error


I got around this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

34 incorrect media


34 Incorrect Media message appears if the printer has detected a mismatch between the type of media requested by the user and the type of media actually loaded in the paper tray.

To attempt a resolution for this issue, please do the following:
  1. Press the green GO button on the printer operator panel. Printing will resume, but the printer must go through a POR (Power On Reset) in order to clear the message.
    NOTE: The printer does not automatically reprint the page that generated the error message.
  2. Verify that the media you are using is supported by your printer in terms of size, weight, and input source.
  3. Using the printer operator panel, verify that the type of media loaded in the paper tray matches the Paper Type setting in the Paper Menu. Detailed instructions for navigating through the printer menus and changing the media type setting are provided in the C510 User's Guide.
    • If the media type setting is incorrect and cannot be changed, there may be an issue with the media type sensor. Proceed to step 5.
  4. Using the printer's operator panel, verify that the paper loaded in the paper tray is the size listed under Paper Size in the Paper Menu. Detailed instructions for navigating through the printer menus and changing the paper size setting are provided in the C510 User's Guide.
    • If the paper size changes to an incorrect setting or cannot be changed, it is likely that the paper size guides in either the 250-sheet or the 530-sheet paper tray are not set correctly. Remove the media from the tray and verify the location of the media guides.
  5. Power the printer off and then back on again.
  6. Resend the print job to the printer.
  7. If the error persists, you will need to contact Lexmark Technical Support for assistance. Please obtain the printer serial number before contacting Lexmark. If possible, call from near the printer as this will allow for the most accurate possible diagnosis.
Hope this will help you please let me know if it worked and don't forget to vote..
Cheers
