Printer shows standard top bin full

Where the paper exits, there should be black tabs that lift up each time a page exits. They might be stuck in the up position, or possibly broken. Usually caused by aggressive removal of a paper jam.

Standard top bin full?

I suggest you remove any sheets of paper from top tray then lift up and release a black plastic flap found under a plastic overhang on paper exit tray. This lever (If its not broken/missing), should be free and should drop down(under its own weight) freely. If not then it will involve using the manual to remove the top cover and find where lever is jamming (usually jumped out of a guide bearing.)

My printer Lexmark T634 is showing "remove paper standard bin"

What your printer is telling you is that it thinks or knows that the top exit tray for the paper is full. This is the tray that is moulded into the top of the printer.

This caused by two things. It is actually full or the Bin Full Actuator is out of position and forcing the error condition.

Look at the standard bin. Over to the top at the top left corner there should be finger (almost the same as paper clip) hanging down. If it is not there, then it is more then likely that the finger is jammed up.

Std bin full

The Standard Bin Full message is refering to the main output tray for the printer. If you have nothing mounted to the top of the printer, then the standard tray is where the paper is exiting.

What the message is telling you the bin is full and it is not, most likley the failure is that the sensor (a piece of wire is jammed in the up position. Just release the wire and let it hang down. That should clear your message and let you start printing again.

Printer Jam - when i put a sheet of Avery labels, printer jams

When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.

Standard top bin full remove paper

Hi there is seems that the machine thinks there is too much paper at the paper printout exit. If there are printouts on the top of the printer remove them and the printer will start printing or the error message will go away. If there is nothing on top of the printer then where the paper comes out after it has printed you will see a black plastic lever type it is more likely to be in the up position without breaking it if it hasn't already been broken move it so it is in the down position it is on a hinge so be careful and it should sit at an angle. Once this has been done the printer will reset the message itself.

Hope this is help you oh if the arm is broken it will need replacing (just the arm)

Thanks J
