Re: loading the paper

Check the paper settings on your word processor. Most probably you picked either a paper type or paper size that is not plain, letter sized paper. That is why the word processor sends the job to the manual tray.

Message window shows "load mp

The printer tells you to insert a letter format paper in the mp (multi purpose) feeder (the manual tray).
If you press the GO key the print probably proceeds with print job (if has the paper loaded in mp feeder)

What does load mp feeder letter mean? There is paper in the printer why is the printer not prinint

load mp feeder means To load the Manual Paper Feeder
You might have selected the printer settings for manual feeding. Hence you need to feed that papers in manual feeding tray.
You can change the settings to automatic paper feeding to get rid of this error.

My printer says load paper then press start, I have paper in there and it wont print.

Dont know what you have already tried but first off verify that you are loading paper to the correct tray. Now this tray is going to have a switch located toward the feeder that tells the printer paper is loaded make sure the paper is back far enough but not to the point where you are forcing the paper into the feeder. If all this still doesnt work try reseting the printer and printing a test page. Hope this helps.

Lexmark T642 - I have plain white paper in tray 1 and yellow plain paper in the mp feeder tray. When I choose to print to the mp feeder tray the printer beeps to be loaded with paper but the paper is...

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.

Cant load paper into my printer



My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to loading the paper    . I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.


Please try below steps if you want to know how to load paper in to the Feeder.:

Important: When loading paper into the feeder, make sure you are using separated (i.e., cut) sheets of paper. Banner paper that is connected end-to-end should not be used unless you are specifically printing a banner.

To load separated sheets of paper:

  1. Obtain a fresh stack of paper.
  2. Separate the paper by bending it back and forth in an "S" shape before loading it into the printer.
  3. Place the paper against the right side of the sheet feeder, with the print side facing you.
  4. Gently insert the paper into the feeder. Do not  force the paper down into the printer.
  5. Squeeze the release tab and the paper guide together, and slide the paper guide to the edge of the paper.

Humid conditions may cause some sheets of paper to stick together.


If the issue still persists,  then I recommend you to look in to USER MANUAL that is provided along with Printer for instructions on loading Paper.


Well, for your convienience I'll provide you with steps that helps to access USER MANUAL.................


Steps are :

  • If the Lexmark P4300 software is already installed in Windows:
    1.  Go to Start, (All) Programs, and point to Lexmark P4300 Series. 
    2.  Select User's Guide.

  • If you have not yet installed the Lexmark P4300 software, you can find the User's Guide on the installation CD.  Do the following:
    1.  Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive. The Lexmark installation screen should appear.
      • If the screen does not appear, open My Computer and double-click on the 4300 Series icon.
    2.  Click on the ?  icon to the left of View User's Guide (including setup troubleshooting).  You will be asked whether you would prefer to save the User's Guide to the desktop and view it from there (Yes), or to view it from the CD (No). 
    3.  Select the option you prefer.
  • This should resolve the issue for you.


     If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at . I'll be glad to help you.
