    There is a small metal or plastic strip (sensor) that sense the presence of paper in the paper feed. There may be even two. When paper jams, if you pull out the paper, the sensor(s) might get damaged.


    Check for sensor damages first.

The reason that your printer is asking you to load paper into the MPF is that it doesn't think it has that size paper in tray 1 or 2. Make sure that the green paper guide in the paper tray that you want to print from is latched in the correct position. This guide tells the printer what size paper is in the tray. If you have it even slightly out of position you'll get this message.

Alaksa42 is right. I've seen the tray guide slip out of position ever so slightly and give this error. The correct slot for the size is usually a little larger than the rest of teeth on the tray slide. It has to be in that larger slot. If your printing letter size paper theres a quick way to check if this is the problem. Turn the tray on its edge..left side up. You'll see a couple of plastic fingers protruding out. If the bottom two are out and the others are flush the tray is set correctly. If however the bottom two or more are protuding..its set incorrectly for letter size paper. Adust the tray until only those two are out for letter size

Make sure you have selected the multi purpose feeder (front of the printer) in the driver, not the Manual Feeder.

The manual feeder will prompt for paper on each page. All you have to do is to press the "Go" button.

Hi, my name is Fernson I have a Lexmark t630 anytime i try to print something it says "load mp feeder letter "


Hi,

Load "MP" means to load media into the Multi Purpose feeder , which is in the front of the printer.

This can be caused by several things, all of which are easy to fix.

First, open the printer driver and verify the correct selection of media draw.

Next, ujse the printer's paper menu to set the proper tray.

Lastly, make sure that the print file going to the printer is not asking for the MP Feeder.

Our printer says load MP feeder. We can't get it to print. Please


The front of the printer is a door that opens this is the MP feeder. Load paper in it and the unit should print. Someone likely sent a job requesting that tray.
