I'm guessing (wildly) that the printer is an R2400 (although there's no guarantee of that it seems :) )...

Anyway, the problem is most likely to be in the printer driver settings used on your computer.

You need to go to:

- Start
- Printers & Faxes
- Locate your printer
- Right click on the printer and choose "printer preferences"

From here you need to ensure that all your settings for paper size, etc... are correct.

You also need to ensure that whatever you're actually printing has the correct page setup using the same paper size.

Hopefully that will correct your problem.

Load try1 plain letter error on display screen appears on lexmark e342n


If printer is connected to a network, type the printer IP address into the address field of your Web browser. Click on Configuration and select on paper menu and make you have the correct settings. Make sure you selected the correct paper source and paper type.

Make sure on your application, the print settings matches with the printer. Check the print settings of the application that you are using. For example if you are using Microsoft Word, you need to click on print and click the properties button and go to the paper tab.

From the Paper Tab window you can modify the Input options like paper size and the source (paper tray). You may click on the drop down and select "Automatically select" for paper tray and select "Use printer settings on paper type and then click OK.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Error Number : 71 The selected paper size and the paper source are not compatible. Turn the Photo Paper Tray handle to the right, load paper of the correct size in the auto feeder or change the paper size...


Hello,

This is probably a software settings issue, please check in the application that you use for printing if the default paper size is the correct one (A4 on Letter)
Also check in Control panel, under printers Properties, that the correct paper size is selected.
Try printing again.

Regards,
Katharsys

The printer says Load MP feeder B5. how can I fix this.


Several options here:

1st - cancel any documents in the print queue. and print off a report of some kind via the menu button on the machine. if that prints correctly then it either a software/ print driver setting issue.

2nd - If that prints out correctly open up a text pad/ notepad and attempt to print that if the message pops up it's very possible the paper handling has been miss-configured within the print driver.
Now if the document does print out fine, the original document you were attempting to print is set to a B5 paper size. If that's the case pending on what program you are using you will have to change the paper size to you choice of paper your using.

3rd - open up the paper tray and confirm it's set to letter or legal pending what type of paper you have in the tray(not the manual feed tray). I highly doubt it's the tray however as B5 setting would not allow any type of normal paper to be loaded.

4th - on the machine hit the menu button -> paper menu -> confirm that the paper type/ size and source are configured correctly.

I keep getting an error that says to take the tape off the cartridge and check the paper. There is no problem with the cartridge or paper.


Hi. Most probably, just a miscommunication in the printer. Might be the cartridges are not seated properly or just needs cleaning. Try removing the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover of the printer. Unplug the printer from the power source for now. Take a damp paper towel and place it on the table. Set the cartridge on the towel like how you're placing the cartridge in the printer - with the nozzles facing down. Draw 2-3 lines in one direction to wipe the nozzles clean. Do the same to the other cartridge. Plug the power source for the printer. When the printer's ready, load the cartridges back. When it tries to print an alignment page, just leave it be. When it's done printing the alignment page, check again if the error pops up. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I have a Canon PIXMA MP 600. The paper doesn't feed properly anymore. Everytime I get an error: Auto sheet feeder. There is no paper load paper. I checked everything and there is no paper jammed. Is it...


Greetings,

If your are not loading from the ADF, check the settings and see if it is set to get paper from the Auto-Sheet Feeder.

Sometimes having an equipment repaired costs more than buying a new one.

Won't take paper


Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Unit's Operation Panel If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit. Caution: Since the cleaning process wears down the paper feed roller, perform this procedure only when necessary and no more than three (3) times.
  1. Ensure that the machine is powered on and remove any paper from the auto sheet feeder or the cassette.

  2. Use the <Feed Switch> button to select the paper source where you do the paper feed roller cleaning. Click for additional information.

  3. Press the <Menu> button.

  4. Use the right / left cursor button to select [Maintenance/settings] press the <OK> button.


    Note: This procedure is skipped if your machine is in Scan mode. Proceed to step 5.


  5. Use the right / left cursor button to select [Maintenance] and the press the <OK> button.

  6. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning] and press the <OK> button.

  7. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press the <OK> button. (The paper feed roller cleaning starts.)

  8. To check if the rollers are clean, load a sheet of Letter-sized plain paper in the same paper source you selected in step 2, and press the <Open> button.

  9. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning] and press the <OK> button.

  10. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press the <OK> button. (Paper will be fed.)


    Note: If paper is not fed properly, repeat steps 4 through 10 above up to three times.

Paper Source
Press the <Feed Switch> button to switch to toggle between the Automatic Sheet Feed (ASF) or Cassette. The light will come on when the <Feed Switch> is set for that paper source.
ASF

Cassette

Note: When printing from the computer, if paper does not feed from the source you have selected on the operation panel, check Paper Source setting in the printer driver. If the option is not set to 'Paper Feed Switch', paper will feed from the source selected in the driver.
Click to return to step 2 above.
